The search for lippies

The MAC Ruffian Collection was released last June 18, 2012 in North America. The collection includes three lipsticks and three manicures. One of the lipsticks caught my eye.

I wondered if it has huge gold specks, but it doesn’t. Here’s a swatch by the awesome Christine:

Saw this over at Lotus Palace‘s blog:

The color is so pretty that I want it even though I have no idea if the color suits me. Anyone know where I can get this locally? If it’s not available here, maybe Kat could help since she’s going to SG? LOL XDDD Ordering online is not an option for me. I haven’t even received my first batch of GetGlue stickers.

I think I want the Sin Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Perfect for the days I’m already late for work and I won’t have time to apply a primer AND eyeshadow. I feel naked without both. ^^;; The makeup bag looks cute too. I have a similar one, but it’s plain black and doesn’t look as spacious as this. But does this makeup bag have pockets for brushes?

Juliette Has A Gun


I was browsing Urban Outfitters online when I saw this curious brand Juliette Has A Gun. What an interesting name!

From New York to Paris, little Juliette intrigues the world. Armed with perfume, she is a Shakespearian heroine gone wild. The brainchild of perfume outlaw Romano Ricci, Juliette Has A Gun’s Purse Bullets are a cross between sorcery and poetry – the ultimate accessory to apply and re-apply scent discreetly in any occasion.

How charming! The packaging of the parfumes has attitude too!ulitte has a Gun

Kat Von D for Sephora

There are rumors that somebody is going to bring Sephora to the Philippines but until that turns into reality, I can only look wistfully at their online store. The latest Sephora release I want to try is their Kat Von D line.

Kat Von D is this ultra talented tattoo artist based in Hollywood. She has a reality show called L.A. Ink (she used to be with with the guys of Miami Ink). Her portrait tattoos are really something else. I’m going to try to sched a tattoo session with her or her crew when I go to LA next year.

MAC launches their own BB Cream

Photo from Make Up For Life

I was shocked when my sister told me that MAC has launched their own bb cream, MAC Prep + Prime Beauty Balm UVA/UVB SPF35 PA++. I’m crazy over bb creams right now and just recently ordered a bunch of samples for review and testing. This piece of news delighted me a lot. I am a huge fan of MAC cosmetics and I will definitely buy their bb cream. This also means that BB creams will no longer be just an Asian thing. If the American market eats up the MAC version, I’m pretty sure other well-known cosmetics brands will produce their own. My only problem now is how to get a hold of this beauty. Care to help?
