Friday Fragrance: Viva La Juicy

I realize that aside from shoes, nail polishes and sort of make up, I wanted to try and collect some good perfume. Actually, I have only three perfumes in my bag. The first love was the United Colors of Benetton, Hot & Cold, which fades anyway. Follow by Escada Pacific Paradise and Marine Groove and eventually tried Anne Curtis perfume..Haha (okay diehard fan ako!) Since I started trying them all, I have not looked at others, I don’t know, because I know, every woman in the world has its own taste of smell. Signatures scent in other words.:) I got this Viva La Juicy sample from a friend, and it was so good!

This was my perfume presently, and I started to love it. This fruity perfume was ideal for me. I’ll admit it’s one of those perfume that hype form time to time, but I love the hint of berries mixed with subtle floral sweet scent of it. Then the scent becomes warmer with vanilla and amber hints. I guess I could still use it until summer! And the major strong point on these all, it lasts all day long! I realize, if I choose perfume, (1) it floral-fruity scent (2) it long-lasted (3) pocket friendly and “anytime” scent.

Review: Vintage Rose Lipstick from CollectionPh!

Who here is a fan of SM’s store? Ever went to three day sale of SM Aura? What sold you? Satisfied or Dismayed? You know how much I love SM’s department store. What I’ve only got for myself was the brown belt, new set of earrings and the affordable lipstick I am using now. Can we proceed to the lipstick which I’m talking about please?

I would like to see the expensive discounted cosmetics but I don’t want to rush in the huddle volume in stall, what I did was, went to the booth without too customers and mostly ignored by most. *winks* I went to the booth of Collection Ph, because I suddenly thought of Camille Co eh. Haha. I tried their lipstick collection and in three lipsticks I used, Vintage Rose suits what I has been looking for. I do not have this color. So I take one for a test quality.

Overview

Collection Cosmetics is an affordable make up hailing from the UK. This affordable lipstick only costs at I99P which has 11 shades. They have quite number of products available from eye shadows to lipsticks. Since this is a new brand to me, I decided to try one of their Lasting Color Lipsticks which I got the Vintage Rose 13. I am not sure if where other stores you may acquire this but I got mine from SM Aura.

Packaging

Classic lipstick that you may twist up and down that is well-built,the metallic paint above is actually fading so there’s nothing unique impressive, but I like color pink, and black.:)

Scent and Pigmentation

It has a weet scent but tolerable

I choose Vintage Rose shade because it’s creamy rose pink that’s great for work and outdoors- (romantic dates) in essence to channel girly vibes. Its creamy formula has a little bit of shine but not glittery in any way.

Consistency and Longevity

I glide it once, so I am amazed with its color payoff. It lasts on me for about four hours and I had to reapply after eating.

Overall Rating?

For the price, color payoff and formula, I will definitely repurchase and try other shades. Collection Lipstick is a great finds especially if you’re a makeup newbie like me, since these won’t hurt your wallet. You must try it if you are lipstick addict!
