Viseart Lip Palette in Muse Nude 01: Swatches + Review...

I surely hope that by now you already know that when it comes to lip color, I love nudes. To date, my favourites would include MAC Peachstock, Rimmel Undressed and The Morning After from Happy Skin.  Take me to the lipsticks section in a makeup counter and you'd see me trying on different shades of nudes. I still think they look better on me than bright pinks or reds. Maybe you'd say I'm boring, but well, that's just how I am when it comes to lip color.

I remember one time when I actually wished for a lipstick palette with all nude shades in it.  I did come up with a DIY lipstick palette in the past but because I ought to use it for my makeup gigs, it has a variety of shades in it.  I did think of creating a palette of nudes too, but my katamaran got in the way and so I never got the chance to do it.


So, I'm pretty sure you know how ecstatic I was when I finally got hold of my wish…a lipstick palette of Nude shades!




Viseart Lip Palette in Muse Nude 01




When I first saw this online via DTCMakeup, it got me so excited.  "I have to have that," I told myself. But even after a number of orders made, I still didn't buy it. Why?  Nagkukuripot! (laughs)  This baby costs Php3800 and I told myself, with that amount, I'd rather buy something else.  I tried to convince myself that I don't need a lipstick palette since I won't be doing makeup on other people anyway.  All I need are backups of my favourite nude lipsticks and I'm good.  

But when I got my hands on this baby, I was like, "GAAAAHHH…Why did I have to wait all this time!?"





This palette for me, is my lips' heaven on earth!  Fine, OA na. But seriously, I don't think I'd ever need to reach out for my other lippies now that I have this.

I am still here….

Oh yes, I am still here…that is in case you're wondering where the hell am I and well, you're missing me. Wait, have you missed me?
^_^

Kiddin' aside, I've just been very busy since last month because I've started in a new job which is entirely new to what I've been doing in the past. I'm still adjusting until now and to be honest, I still can't say that it's for me. Let's see. 

And another reason was, I went home for a short vacation in PH!  I got to spend New Year with my family and spend time with friends.  Indeed, iba talaga ang feeling pag nasa Pinas. I still look forward to the day that we won't have to leave anymore. 

Here's a few snaps of our time in Pinas:

Oh yes, I got another haircut!

Last day in PH

I'd be posting more photos in the coming days plus some reviews of the places we went to.  I know I've been saying this for the longest time but I will try harder to blog more this year.  Honestly, I thought of shutting down this blog because I don't feel that motivated anymore. I felt like nobody's reading my blog anymore, I don't get to attend events that much and that I am so left behind already. I felt like I've reached the end of my blogging career, choz!  Then I remembered why I started this blog in the first place…I want to share my thoughts and experiences on products I'm using, I want to make kwento of anything that comes into my mind..and I want to connect with people who I share the same interests with.  So push lang! Maybe I'd stop blogging eventually, but not now.  Not yet. This blog serves as my online diary and the fact that I have met and still continue to meet friends and experience a lot of great things thru this blog, I think this is still worth spending time on. 

So yes, hopefully I get to have my blogging mojo back!

But really, I wish that you've missed me.

Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara in Ultra Black...


Next to eyebrow makeup and eyeliner,  I think the next makeup stuff that I'd consider an essential is the mascara.  I have naturally thin, stick-straight lashes and I've realized years ago that mascara really helps in opening up the eyes making them more tantalizing (LOL!) 

I love mascaras and though I know one shouldn't open a lot of mascaras all at the same time because technically, they should only be kept for 6 months (max), I just couldn't stop myself from discovering what other brands has to offer when it comes to mascaras.  I've already found a number of good brands in the past (please check out my previous posts),  but I'm still always in the lookout for really good mascaras because as I've said earlier, it's a staple in my kit.

Today, I'd be sharing with you my experience with my first makeup stuff from Bourjois which happens to be another mascara…told you, I am such a sucker for mascaras!

Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara
(AED 70)

Featuring a high concentration of high intensity black pigments, it gives one an enchanting (I'd prefer tantalizing, hahah!) gaze for up to sixteen hours.

SK-II Pitera Essence Set Initial Review + Shop at Luxola and get 30% off your purchase...


For the longest time, I've been eyeing SK-II skincare. I mean, who wouldn't? If you know Cate Blanchett, you'd know why.  

I know you'd probably say but she has good genes (so you mean I don't!?? Hahaha!) and that she's of Australian descent and she grew up in a place with a much better climate than where I grew up and yadah yadah yadah. Fine, but I've seen a lot of good reviews online about this skincare and some of them are also Asians living in a tropical climate. So please don't kill my hopes just yet.  

And just when I was on the verge of giving in to buying myself a trial set, I got a chance to try their Pitera Essence Set courtesy of our friends at Luxola (thanks so much!):
