Lips Are Sealed

Lately, I have been playing with the make up that I have. And also, I've been watching make up gurus once again. I started watching make up tutorials when Michelle Phan was just starting to get famous. You know, when she used to film in her room and with her then signature background music and very calm voice. I still love her, it's just that, since I went back watching make up tutorials few months back, I noticed how she changed! In a good way, of course. I am so happy for her! Anyway, enough of Michelle and back to me and my make up. lol. I do not have so much, but I think I have a lot for someone who claims that she's not into make up! Especially lipsticks.

So the main reason why I went back to watching Michelle Phan and started watching other gurus is because of the stuff that my Aunt gave me. I do not want to put those make up into waste, so I thought, why not give it a try! Ha! I started to really use make up in college, but it had to be minimal or else, Sister Florence would get mad. :P

Back then up until few months back, I was just the face powder, blush, lipstick, mascara and liquid liner type of girl. Well, when BB Cream became such a hit, I hopped into the bandwagon and had my first purchase 2 years ago, I think.  Right now, when I feel like wearing make up, I actually make an effort to use face primer, eyelid primer, concealer and I try to do my brows! I'm still learning! HAHA!

Ahhhh. I actually just want to blog about how I think I have too many lipsticks but there I go and blahb about me being such a noob. So, anyway, I really think I have too much lipstick. I already gave away some and disposed some and there are still a lot left. So, I've been trying to use everything! Heehee!

I also have these two new lipsticks. When I first learned that I'd be receiving lipsticks again, I was hoping that it'd be matte. I didn't really like Plumful. :/ I was giddy when I saw that I got Kinda Sexy and Ruby Woo! Ha! When I took the photos, I did not swatch the new lipsticks because I was still thinking if I'd sell or use them! Lol. Buuuuut, yes, I decided to keep them!

Kinda Sexy & Ruby Woo
KINDA SEXY: WITH flash & WITHOUT flash
Sorry for my droopy eyes. T guess the flash was too much for my eyes too see :)). I just realized that I do not really take photos of me right after I put on my make up. I had no choice but use these two photos because I know that I just reapplied my lipstick when these were taken. Ha!

And on a liptstick unrelated note, I do not like how my face powder looks like when flash is being used. I am using Revlon Photoready Face Powder and I do not like how it looks kinda shimmery. I'm a matte kind of girl. In natural light and no flash photos, it looks okay, but with flash, uhm, I really do not like it. :( Suggestions? Okay. Let me know on the comments section. Back to the liptstick!

RUBY WOO
I am so sorry, I do not have a high resolution photo of me wearing Ruby Woo! HAHA! These were taken using an iPAD. But yeah. That is how it looks on me. I love both shades. But since it's summer, I use Kinda Sexy more!


These two are my current lip savers. My lips are always chapped so I definitely need these two in my life. It's my first time to use the Dragonfruit Lip Butter from The Body Shop. I like the smell and it really moisturizes my lips, but I don't like how it looks frosty on my lips. I've been using Born Lippy since first year college and then I decided to try out this  :/ I guess I should've stayed using Raspberry Born Lippy. This is what I get for switching just because this one smells better than Raspberry!

oh yayy! i love that you did a beauty post Ish =D your lipstick collection is amazing, red looks sexy on you! :) and oh about the shimmer on your face when you use the flash, i think it's because Revlon PhotoReady gives a dewy finish and using a flash accentuates it more. I use that foundation as well, and self photos are better without a flash, maybe you can use natural lighting instead to get the matte look :)
Ishna said…
Thank you so much, Kim! I love Ruby Woo! It makes everything looks more fab! :)
Ishna said…
I will check your blog and let you know. Thanks

And yes, photos look better without flash. I guess I'll use my other powder if I 'll use flash photography.

Wow, you have such a nice lipstick collection! Lipstick still scares me...I can never seem to find the right shade so I just stick to using gloss. :)

I try to use lipsticks these days as much as I can because I have some I haven't used yet. I prefer lip tints because they are lighter and they don't bleed to my teeth! :)

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&#…
