August Favorites: Maybelline, Avon, VMV, TonyMoly, Palgantong

The thing with this passion for cosmetics: it comes with a constant desire to test new products. There is one and every product for each need and want imaginable. I liken it to getting to know oneself; along the way of every product try is a chance to discover really good ones that raise our confidence a wee bit higher.

While we’re at the half of September, I thought I’d run through a couple of products that were in my mental ‘Favorites’ list for the month of August. These are products which I have tested last month and found to be very effective.

Without further ado, these are my ‘hit’ products for August:

1. Maybelline Baby Lips Cellular Repair Balm in Smoothing Cherry

The kikay girl in me has been a sucker for lip balms since I was 10. I’ve gone from cult favorite Chapstick to Nivea to Blistex and back but I’ve never really been very satisfied with it. It tended to make my lips peel and a bunch of other effects which left me wondering when whether lip balm was really as essential as many beauty gurus point out. But this one from Maybelline really works for me.

True to its promise of supple, smooth and hydrated baby soft lips, this is my HG lip balm. No more peeling and rough-to-the-touch lips! 🙂 

Plus points for not having a chemical taste to it and the yummy scent of cherry. ♥  Continue reading

One Swipe = A New Look


Quick post:

I’m so late in the news but yes it’s true, a swipe of lipstick can change your whole look! Talk about convenience; you won’t have to wipe off an hour’s worth of makeup in the evening when you go out with the girls after work.

Here’s a photo of me last week on a really full and crazy day. Started my day early in the office and ended with a dinner in Greenbelt. Good thing my VMV So Clear Oil Absorbing Pressed Powder didn’t give up on me all throughout. Yay! 🙂

In between all the stuff to be done, I had no more time to do more than a quick retouch of powder and lipstick. What saved me aside from my VMV pressed powder? Yup you guessed it right, my lippies!

From sweet pink to sophisticated red! Thanks to:

Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Offbeat Pink

Models Own in Scarlet (bought at a steal price from Kering Keri Store)

For the truly pressed for time, spritz on your favorite face mist and just reblend the makeup that you’ve already applied during the day. Don’t forget to swipe on an appropriate shade of lipstick! 🙂

P.S. I’d love to hear all about your favorite lipstick shades. 🙂
