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

MAC Siss. 
Finish: Satin

I have never worn Siss on its own. I attempted once but I think I looked dead!  I had to today for blogging purposes. LOL It just does not look good on me. I am a matte girl and since this one has a satin finish, it makes me even more uncomfortable wearing it. I hate how pretty it looked when I swatched it on my arms! I wish it could translate to my lips. Ugh.

But anyway, although I hate it on my lips alone, I love mixing at matching it with other colors. I normally mix it with Ruby Woo and other red shades if I want a coral-y lip! But hey, this photo with Siss on my lips actually looks decent, yeah?

MAC Yash
Finish: Matte

There are times when I actually like Yash but most of the times, it just really does not look good on me. I guess it depends on my eye make up. I'm not really big into eye make up and I feel like Yash and Siss will only look good if worn with a pretty smoky eye make up!

MAC Mocha
Finish: Satin

Although this looks pretty in photos and I could really use some moisture on my lips, I am really not a big fan of satin finish. When I use this, I would blot-reapply-blot-reapply and finally blog again. I get the pretty color in matte and it stays longer that way!

MAC Taupe
Finish: Matte

This is my favorite among these four! One of my go to everyday lipstick, especially if I accidentally make my eyeliner too dramatic and thick. It is very wearable. There are times when I would wear this for one whole working week.

Agree! Taupe looks the best on you. But I think the other three colors look really good as well though not as good as taupe. Me, even though I like matte lipsticks, they are too drying and sometimes I end up with chapped lips! I lip balm before the matte lipstick but it makes my lips shiny defeating the purpose of applying matte lipstick.

Really loving Taupe and Yash. Taupe looks just stunning on you!

Happy New Year, Ish! Wish you all the best for 2016 :) Gorgeous natural shades, they really suit you. I've been loving natural shades over bold lip colors like I used to.

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…

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&#…
