LA Splash Lip Couture in Ghoulish, Latte Confession and Rose Garden

For a non-lipstick kind of person, I have way too much lippies these days!

In comparison with the Smitten Lip Tint Mousse these lippies have a more liquid-y consistency when applied. But just the same, it applies to a velvety-matte finish that will remain smudge-proof, waterproof and transfer-proof provided you don't eat or drink anything oily.

Product Review: Bourjois Air Mat Foundation

If you ask me if there's a makeup item that I think I'll never have enough of, I would say, foundations!  I only have one face but I think I have around 20 foundations in my kit.  Oh yes, I kid you not!  Well, it all started when I was still doing makeup on clients.  I have to make sure that I have a foundation for most, if not all, skin types.  And you know that if you are a makeup artist, one shade of each kind is never enough.  You should have at least three - light, medium and dark.
Now that I only do makeup on myself (and on my friends on some occasions), you might say that my "addiction" to collecting foundations might have stopped.  Engk, wrong! Hahaha!  And if before, I lean towards high-end brands when it comes to foundations, I have recently realized that even those that we call drugstore makeup also deserves a spot in my makeup arsenal. One of the drugstore makeup brands that I am loving is Bourjois. Aside from their lippies and their eyeliners, their foundations are also good.  I was sent a sample of their new AirMat Foundation and have been loving it ever since.

LA Splash Smitten Waterproof Liptint Mousse in Charmed, Lovegood and Nymph-adora

And so after hearing a lot of good (and some bad) things about these long-wearing matte lipsticks from LA Splash, I finally gave in and ordered a few.  Inggiterang palaka, I know.  But after trying them, I told myself I should've jumped into the bandwagon a long time ago.  And maybe, just maybe, this blog post won't be this late.  Hahaha, but that's fine.  I'm used to being outdated. And besides, my wallet won't like it if I always try to be updated with what's new in the makeup industry.  Tee-hee!

For today's post, it will be about the three shades that I got from the LA Splash Smitten Lip Tint Mousse. Believe me, I had a hard time choosing shades.  There are a number available at DTCMakeup site, and as much as I wanted to get everything, I had to keep myself from doing so.  Thank god for Sol, for guiding me and suggesting shades that she knows I would wear.  That's one thing that I love about her, unlike other sellers, she won't be pushing you to buy stuff that she knows you won't even get to use.  So yes, I highly recommend her and her shop.

These lippies are so pigmented and the color stays true all day.  I'm pretty sure you've come across some lippies that change color as the day go by.  These lippies don't.  It's liquid-y when first applied and then dries up to a waterproof and smudgeproof finish that will not transfer (as long as you let it set first). It might fade a bit on the inner part of the lips, but overall, it still looks least for me.  Not sure for the others though.

So here are the shades that I got from this line:

The 30-Day Writing My Life Challenge - Day 15: The Story Behind The Last Text I Sent

"Yes, NOW."
Woah, too serious no!? Hahahaha. It's actually a message that I sent to one of my colleagues regarding something that he needs to submit at the soonest.  He was asking if it can wait until the EID holiday is over but I told him why wait, if he can actually do it now. Besides, the deadline was way too long ago and now we are being called out for our non-compliance.

Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation Dubai Launch

It seems like the digital revolution will never end. Years ago, advances in the camera technology and HD TV brought about the need for a new level of foundation that will make one look naturally flawless on-camera. With HD cameras, the slightest imperfection will be highlighted. And who would want that?  This need was met by Make Up Forever with their original HD foundation but as we all know, technology is fast evolving. Now, we have 4K HD which means 4x the amount that a regular HD camera has. So yes, this literally means that every little pore will be hugely magnified!
But don't be scared, Make Up Forever has yet again came up with a foundation that will make skin look ultimately flawless and at its perfection all the time, on and off camera. 
Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation
A reformulated, but a lot more better than their original HD foundation, this liquid foundation promises a naturally flawless finish that is undetectable and light on the skin.  It's like your skin but 100000000x better!  Whoaaa, selfie-addicts rejoice!
The launched was held at the Armani Hotel Ballroom in Burj Khalifa last September 7 and was attended by key celebrity makeup artists here in the Middle East.
Here are some photos during the launch:
