Red by MIYU (A Lipstick for Valentines Day!)

Hello folks! How’s your weekend? Mine was a lot of preparation, quality time with the whole family, celebrating birthdays with my college friends and just stayed home with A. I never think that I still have time pa to blog again. Many drafts in my inbox that needed to complete.  Since Valentines Day is just around the corner,( though I and my partner is not a fan of it) I know that “ everything red “ much be seen and appreciated in VDay. Red lipstick is in too! Which one I could wear? I never had enough red. I never consider shopping for the red lipstick so I wonder if most of my reds are from colleagues and family.

3 in 1 lipstick

However, I tried the perfect red for me which is from Korean brand, Miyu. (Thanks my loves!)Woot!


What I love about this 3 in 1 product lipstick?

  1. Shade– different shade of red I know! There are many reds to choose from. Sometimes you might afraid whether it will suit your skin or not. But this falls under orange-red or even poppy red. I think anyone can pull it off.
  2. Finish– Red by MIYU is a matte lipstick, highly pigmented.
  3. Price– Looking for a steal or a splurge? This Red by MIYU is actually you can bought at set at P2750 with whitening cleanser and moisturizer as well.
  4. Longevity– I must say that it’s worth the price. You can wear it from day to night. It’s Valentine’s Day, after all. (but me, the usual working day (lol)




Review} MAC Amplified Crème Lipstick in Brick-o-la

Since work has been suspend due to bad weather, time permits me to review this long time MAC Amplified Crème lipstick . Mac lippies are love even they’re too pricey for a tube.

MAC Brick-o-la

Mac Brick-o-la is an Amplified crème finish look from the collection. The color is midtone berry shade that suits my skin color. This is one of my on the go lipstick. It just wearable for everyday especially when you are working in the government. It gives simple but polished look. I would suggest this color if you are not fan of vibrant color. This shade is gorgeous!

The texture is pigmented which it easily glides on the lips. You can feel the moisturizing and fuller appearance but my chapped lips didn’t heal. I must say, the color lasted for 4 hours including sipping and light meals in between. It leaves a stain on cups.

Maybelline Powder Matte in Nude Illusion

blog 209

It’s been a couple of months since Maybelline release their 15 shades of powder mattes. Like everyone who’s excited to buy from their collection, I attempt to get one since I had their Creamy mattes in four that I love but never had a chance to finish it further. I got mine in “Nude Illusion”

blog 210

Nude Illusion is a pinkish nude that for me is too light my skin. 1-3 swipes needed to fully covered and see the color on my lips. The texture is smooth and easy to glides on. It can last to 2-3 hours without eating.The packaging is same with Maybelline Creamy mattes but in orangey.

blog 207

What I love about the product: is very affordable at P299. The shade is perfect for everyday use. It doesn’t have scent compared to creamy mattes.

What I don’t like: is less pigmentation, too light for my lips.

My First Sephora Haul:)

I turned my birthday last week and I have to shower myself aside from my family. Since am into make up lately and love to try different brands, I loot few stash from Sephora. Good thing they have free shipping when you spend at least $30. Since my partner was very supportive to my whim, well I have to check these what’s on my cart!

I had been captivated by some vlogs, blogs and tutorials recently so I am very optimist to have new lippies and few basic from the store. Yeah! Quantity over quality! But who knows? Can we work out on this? Maybe when the time permits me!

In some view, SleekMakeup is such a good brand too! It is way cheaper in brand store though. Ugh!

-12 shades that offer good pigmentation and perfect for every skin tone, looks great packaging to give a try. I absolutely this palette!

-I don’t have high end brushes so I give a try on this! I love how these brushes provide everything ou need to create flawless looks at home and away. Compose of essential brush (gold) domed shadow brush (purple) and multi task brush (pink/fuchsia)

Sephora Collection Color Lip Last Lipstick Color 24 & 6

-Color 24 Cocoa Passion is a shimmering brown metallic while Color 6 Blooming Rose is a Brownish pink matte, these radiant lipsticks that over 26 shades are comfortably last up to 10 hours. Super high pigmented color while lips leave with agents like rose hip oil and vitamin B.

Plus a sample of Sephora 10 Hr Wear Perfection Foundation

Birthday Suit on a Birthday!

A little post from a new trend liquid matte lipstick. Now on our latest, Sleek Make Up which launched last year. I came up to their liquid lippies because for me they can be a same dupe to Colour Pop. Anyways, I bought this Sleek Make Up in Birthday Suit before my birthday so the title was. Hehe Kidding! Seriously, I been heard some good reviews about it so why not to try, plus my fave beauty blogger Martha really justify this brown nude rose shade. I think this is ideal for darker skin tones or people with deeper nude tone.


It is rosy beige that glides on smoothly that dubbed as Kylie Jenner lip shade. I fell in love the first time I tried it! If I have enough money on this coming holiday I would buy more because Sleek Makeup is a good brand.


What you think? Have you tried this one? If not, go to the nearest store or shop it at zalora for only P450.:)
