Swatch, FOTD - Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Red Lacquer

A small package was waiting for me a couple nights ago when I came home after another brutal work day.
First I thought it was weird since I have not ordered anything recently.
Turns out it was a Super Lustrous lipstick sent from Revlon enclosed with a small card saying "Use this product to complete your next Expression Experiment Challenge.".

I did participated in the Revlon look challenge a few times before, but I have no idea how they found out where to send it.
(I guess I have disclosed my address while I was using the FaceBook app. I don't have much complaint since it is a lipstick not a bomb sent to me.)

Swatch, FOTD - L'Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain Pink Rebellion

I can't believe another week flew by without a single post.
I recently took up on another job (on top of the gazillion things I am doing) and it has been taking a lot of time.

It is a little too soon to write another post on Wet Shine Stain, but I have been reaching for this almost everyday and this has been a godsend for my hectic schedule.
Also, the second color I picked up, Pink Rebellion shows up quite different on my lips and the color payoff is different as well compared to the Infinite Fuchsia (reviewed HERE).
I am just going to talk about the color and its sheerer consistency in this post.

NOTD - Deborah Lippmann Let's Go Crazy

This unique beaut of glitters was a part of the giveaway gift from lovely Taylor of My Lucite Dreams.
I am not into glitter polishes to be honest, only because it is so difficult to remove, I rarely buy glitter polishes on my own, so this gift was actually perfect!

I don't feel that I need to say much about how beautiful and unique Let's Go Crazy is since the picture literally speaks for itself.

5 things I am enjoying this winter

I don't really do posts on monthly favorites or empties but suddenly I feel like sharing the beauty related things I have been enjoying lately.
Some of them are newly found and some are my old favorites. :)

1. Rocking heavier and more feminine scents
I am enjoying darker, sweeter and more mature fragrances lately.
Winter is perfect for enjoying these without hogging the air and causing headaches for others.
I still try not to overdo any of them since they are quite potent and long lasting.
I do the "spritz in the air and do a little dance under" technique(?), and it is just right. ;p

Review - Amore Mamonde Total Solution Mineral Moisture BB Cream SPF 20 PA+

Today I have a quick review on this Korean BB cream that I am reaching for quite often lately.
This was a gift from my dear friend Pauline in Korea. :)

Mamonde is a sub brand of Amore Pacific and this BB cream seems quite popular. I see many online shops carry it.
I have seen it on eBay and sasa.com as well at very reasonable price.

Swatch, FOTD - L'Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain Infinite Fuchsia

I love my YSL Gloss Stain Violet Edition and actually think it is worth the price, but it is a different story if I am willing to spend on another one soon.
Like many of you, I was very excited about the new Wet Shine Stain from L'Oreal that is supposed to be a nice dupe of the YSL Gloss Stain.
With L'Oreal being a parent company of Yves Saint Laurent Cosmetics, I was even more excited. This would mean I can have this hybrid lippie in different colors without having to pay for $32 each!

My choice of color, Infinite Fuchsia (187) arrived a couple days ago, and it did not disappoint.
I can safely say this Wet Shine Stain is a nice affordable alternative to the YSL Glossy Stain if not identical.

Swatch, Review - Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick 08

Happy new year, everyone!

My lippie obsession continues this year and I got a couple of new things already (including the new L'Oreal Shine Stain!).
I am late in the game in reviewing this much-talked-about Rimmel lipstick by Kate.
Although this is not a half bad lipstick (it is rather nice, actually) but I can't really say I was wowed by it.
