Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Vermillion Red

At last, here’s the review of my favorite (included in my Best of Beauty 2015) Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Vermillion Red. 😀

The Paint Wash was a gift from the boyfriend (I forgot for what occasion though. LOL!). He let me choose from the Laura Mercier shop because, obviously, he has zero idea on shopping makeup. Back then, these Paint Wash were new. I had to get my hands on one, but not without an initial test. The salesperson had me try the Vermillion Red shade. He said it’s a beautiful red color that would look good on me. Then it was love at first sight! Or should I say try? LOLs. The Paint Wash was everything I wanted it to be. 🙂 Sleeping it off was no help. Soon after, we got that exact shade.

Choice lippies for end of 2015

I mentioned in my 2015 Best in Beauty that I would be reviewing the Laura Mercier Lip Paint in Vermillion Red separately. (I still love that lip gloss.) That’s queued for review and I thought I would post ahead my last quarter of 2015 choice of lippies. Even though there is no fall or winter in the Philippines, my choices were based on the shade choices for those seasons 😛

Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipstick in Bare It All (902C)

I fell in love with this the moment I used it.

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Bare It All 20151126_065741

Since I have fair skin, I often skip nude lispticks because they’re usually too pale for me and would wash out my face. But I got curious with Wet n Wild’s MegaLast In the Flesh lipstick because it had rave reviews. The stall at The Landmark Makati didn’t have that shade though. I got Bare It All instead. I did like Bare It all the moment I swatched it. It is medium beige with no hint of pink, which is what I want in a nude lipstick.

Happy New Year! + Best of Beauty 2015

Late New Year’s greetings to you lovelies! 😀 Bringing you my first ‘Best of Beauty’ in 2015. I thought hard enough of what products I really liked last year. There’s hair and skin care faves besides makeup, surprisingly. I also found great beauty discoveries last year.

L’Oreal Tint Caresse Powder Lipstick

Earlier this month, L’Oreal Philippines decided to highlight their powder lipsticks on Facebook. So while this product has been around since November last year (or even earlier), and I got one after my birthday, only get to review this now because I forgot about that purchase, and only remembered it when I saw the promos.

So here we go.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Copper

I use a couple of lip glosses this summer. One of them is this Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Copper. Estee Lauder lip glosses are one of my favorites. This shade included. 🙂

Pure Color Gloss - Copper 001
I’ve had this for a long time now. I’m glad it hasn’t gone funky yet. ^^;;;

Truly a ‘high gloss’ from Estee Lauder in the shade of Honey

The Estee Lauder Honey High Gloss is light honey/very light copper shade with lots of gold shimmers. Mine comes in that “Not for sale” size.

Estee Lauder High Gloss in Honey 002

The lip gloss has lots and lots and lots of gold shimmers as mentioned, but they’re not gritty and it doesn’t get messy especially when the lip gloss is gone. Those shimmers actually intensify the gloss to a pretty finish.

Swatches show color. This is actually sheer, but buildable to a really pale honey/copper if you want pale lips with shimmers. 😀 Longevity is quite good. I could still feel the gloss even after a moderate meal. Tackiness is no issue even.

Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace BonBon

So here’s another from the Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace Collection – Bold Brights.

Lip Glace BonBon 001

BonBon Lip Glace is actually a slightly darker shade of peach or a muted pink-orange. I loved this because it’s my HG MLBB. There was a time this was the only lip gloss I would wear wherever, whenever until I realized I have other lip products to use.

Lip Glace BonBon 004v2

Similar to Grenadine, this is not tacky but stays on for a good three hours on my lips then I get a natural pink stain. See this shade on my FOTN: Farming and tanking night. I ♥ that look. Hihi~
