Born (not) Lippy

Aside from my hair, one of my frustrations is my lips! It's always chapped and/or peeling. One of the reasons why I don't use lipstick as much as I want to is because my lips become even drier after putting it on. I love, love lipsticks and lip glasses and having peeling lips ruin it for me. I really hate how there are times when I really want to dress up and put that perfect shade of lipstick to match my outfit but my lips won't cooperate.

Since I have this kind of problem with my lips, I was so ecstatic when I tried this lipstick when I bought something at Watson's Gateway! My lips was, as usual, peeling when I tried the lipstick on. Surprisingly though, the peeling didn't look that obvious when I had the lipstick on. It's a moisturizing lipstick that's why. I love the shade which I tried on, so I decided to get it.

This is my first time using a 4U2 make up! I got the lipstick for P394, very affordable for a lipstick with such good quality! And it is very long lasting. I thought the sales lady was just exaggerating when she told me that it can last for until 8 hours, but you know what, it really can last that long. :) I read so many positive reviews about the products, I'm definitely trying other items from them.

Please ignore the face. LOL. Here's a photo of me wearing the lipstick. Taken with and without flash. I swear the shade looks better in person! =))

Magalawa Island in Zambales - 2016

To kick off Philippines' Summer 2016, we headed to Magalawa Island in Palauig, Zambales. Travel time from Manila is more or less 5 hours, depending on your stop overs if you go there by a private car. Boat ride to Magalawa was quick. I think it was between 10-15 minutes.
I did my research before going to the island. And yes, I have read about the feud between the two resorts in the island, Armada and Ruiz. The person in charge for reservation first inquired at Armada but they were fully booked already.  Since I did my research, I knew that I shouldn't expect much. I was looking forward to it, but definitely, I had my expectations set!
So, we arrived at Ruiz, the staff are really nice. People are really helpful and kind. As for the shoreline at resort, I was not disappointed because, like what I have said, I knew what we're going to see. It would have been really better if there were no seaweeds. The water is really clear but the seaweeds are really annoying!  I enjoyed st…

The Neutrals & Nudes (MAC Siss, Yash, Mocha, Taupe)

I took these photos of the lipsticks months ago, but apparently, I would always end up not posting it. Here I am again, drafting an entry but unlike last time, this is not going to be a failed attempt! So let's start!
Lipsticks are my favorite make up! It's the easiest to apply, the most convenient to bring and that make up that can easily give you a transformation from daytime to night time look! My make up kit which I bring to work everyday has a lot of lipsticks in it. I do not even know why I carry a lot of lipstick with me always, but that's how girls are! We bring all the make ups that we can (or is it just me?)!
These are four of the liptsicks that I tend to carry with me everyday. Well, I do not change lipstick every 3 hours, but I like bringing them because I love mixing them lippies! :D

LA Matte Pigment Gloss - Fleur

I think I have mentioned a lot of times how I am a matte kind of girl. I have been seeing a lot of people posting and raving about the LA Matte Pigment for more or less a year now. I was really hesitant to try it because I had an impression that it would be like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams which I didn't really like.
What made me decide to finally give it a try is when I saw one of my officemates wearing it. It looked really pigmented and I noticed how it has a long lasting effect! There is a stall near my work place which sells the brand so I bought one. I forgot how much exactly did I but it for, but I'm sure it's not more than 350php.

I decided to get Fleur. I was initially thinking of getting Dreamy because I loved it so much when I swatched it but I got talked into getting Fleur because the staff told me that it looks better on me! Lol.
It's really pigmented and I can vouch for its staying power! It doesn't have a weird smell, too so plus points again! It&#…
