Snapdragon lips

My Snapdragon lipstick is too dry and hard to apply. This is the only matte lipstick I have and it’s making me dislike matte lipsticks generally. 馃檨 Such a waste to throw it away, I thought I’d do a little ‘test’.

The staying power of the lipstick is about 2 hours tops. I guess whatever ingredient that should have made it glide smoothly or give a bit of shine has dried out. When I did the ‘test’, it lasted for hours even when I had a big cup of tea. The lip gloss is a match for the lipstick. 馃榾

Lavshuca RD-1 lipgloss review

As what I read from various beauty blogs, it’s true that Japanese lip glosses are flavorless and scentless. All my lip glosses are flavored and some are even scented. The Lavshuca is so alien to me. *lol*

Lavshuca RD-1

The color may be red, but it’s almost transparent with a hint of pink. I was right with my hunch that it won’t be like my Estee Lauder and Clinique lip glosses wherein the colors are visible on the lips like how a lipstick would be.

Glam Want: Special Effects USA Hair Dye

I love loud colors on my hair but colors are very limited in the Philippines. Sure there’s the occasional blue and magenta but those are just meh. If you want more striking colors, you have to get them abroad.

I’ve been lusting after Zo’s hair. She did it herself if I’m not mistaken and it’s a complicated dye job. I went to that Australian Hair School at the Podium last week and I don’t think they even know how to do such a job.

Michelle Phan: Lanc么me’s Video Makeup Artist

My, was I surprised to see Michelle Phan as Lanc么me’s first video makeup artist. I have been a fan of Lanc么me even though I don’t have much their products. They’re very expensive locally. But based on what I have, I must say that their items are worth buying. Now I just need a budget. Haha~ Anyway, I was looking for the Color Design Matte Lipstick in the Lanc么me’s official website. I didn’t find the lipstick yet that’s where I saw the small ad of Michelle Phan on the top of the website. Her first video under Lanc么me is the Romantic Valentine’s Day Date look:

First week of March loot

Not that I intend to make a weekly makeup haul. XD; Anyway, I have been debating in my head over and over again whether I should get an eyeshadow palette I saw in a forum. The seller’s offer was cheaper than those listed in eBay.ph. I was having second thoughts because I have a preorder of another eyeshadow palette. When i was able to confirm that my preorder won’t be arriving very soon, I decided on getting the palette from the forum. 馃檪

Etude House’s Proof 10 Eye Primer

It was due to browsing beauty blogs did I discover about Etude House. The name sounded familiar. When I saw Lee Min Ho in one of Etude House’s ads did I remember where I saw Etude House — a cm of theirs with him in it. I didn’t think they’d land into Philippine shores.

The cuteness of the shop had me sold. I asked Jan that we visit in their one and only (but not for long) store in Megamall. Being that I was very poor at that time we went there, I only got to purchase one item:

Shabby and her pouch

Hello! The name’s Shabby and, if you know me irl, you would be surprised why I’m part of a beauty blog. 馃槢 I’m into Gundam, photography, cameras, cars, figures (Revoltech) — most of what boys would be interested in. Very, very few knows I’m also into makeups. Specifically eye makeups, lip glosses, and lipsticks.

I have been figuring out what would be my first post here until I came across What’s in Your Makeup Bag?. The group gave me an idea, so I decided to organize my pouch and take pictures of what’s inside. I try not to bring too much around. These are pretty much what I usually need since the office is only where I often go to anyway.

Inside the pouch

They are — wet wipes, small Tamagotchi tin, 2 lipsticks, lip conditioner, eye mascara, lip gloss, lip balm, 2-in-1 bronze and blush, powder, anti-bacterial hand gel, hair clip, and eye shadows. The Tamagotchi tin contains safety pins, medicines, and earrings. Let’s take a closer look at some.
