Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Touch of Spice

My day or work lipstick for this month is Maybelline’s Color Sensational Creamy Matte in Touch of Spice. It is a matte deep brown-y pink shade, though looks mauve pink in the tube, that was highly coveted when it was first released here. I didn’t even get to see many of the Color Sensational Creamy Mattes range. Maybe Maybelline had too few stocks per store, people hoarded, or I was just too late to the party. LOL!

New buys from NYX, Maybelline, and The Body Shop

I only wanted to check the NYX stall in SM Makati, but ended up buying and even two more items.

NYX Liquid Sude in Stone Fox, Maybelline Creamy Matte in Touch of Spice, and The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain in Dusty Rose 037

The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain in Dusty Rose 037: I thought I had a dud because there was a build up of product on the applicator. 😐 It has a thick consistency unlike Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain.

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

MAC Sin (Matte)

MAC Sin looks creamy in the photo, but it eventually loses that creamy finish.

NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick in Cruella

My lips were dry in the above photo, but it wasn’t because of the NARS lip pencil. I know I should have scrubbed before the lip swatch. If I did though, that means another day/s delay of this post. 😛
