Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Chili

Mar/04/2016

My HG Red. Before, I was like Russian Red and Lady Danger because of all the hype until Miss A's Suzy Bae sported this. Looks really stunning on her. Chili became a hit in Asian countries.

If Russian Red and Lady Danger had a baby, it would be Chili. And its color is really like Korean red pepper powder. Think brick red/terracotta red. You gotta swatch it in person to appreciate …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Taupe

Mar/04/2016

No, I didn't buy this because of the Kylie Jenner lip trend.

A beautiful deep nude color. Not a fleshy or beigey kind of nude but somewhat like a tan-nude. Think muted brown neutral.

For me, Taupe is an underrated color. It's a somewhat muted terracotta - a nude that definitely looks healthy looking on my lips. It's subtle, but flattering. I like the matte …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Brick-O-La (Amplified Creme)

I wish I bought this earlier. I would put this one in my updated Top 5 MAC lippie list.

Brickola is a beautiful, versatile and unique shade. It's a gorgeous, rosy reddish-brown berry shade. (yeah, it's that sophisticated). You can wear it as an everyday lipstick and even on special occasions. Stunner. It brightens my face just like that. If you want an MLBB red, I recommend …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - MAC Pink Pigeon

So I bought this because I never caught up with the Viva Glam Miley 1 hype. I have similar shades Girl About Town (which is a fuchsia), and Impassioned (a warm hot pink with coral and red undertones. I wanted to have a classy blue-toned bright pink that wouldn't clash with my warm skintone and not as scary neon like Candy Yum Yum. Something like Nars Schiap. This fit the bill. I'm in …Read more

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Lipstick (All Shades)

Dec/10/2015

I'm a MAC Girl, but I have to admit, NYX mattes are a good alternative to mattes, in texture. They have a good selection of colors too.

My top 3 favorites from this range are: Sierra, Pure Red, and Audrey.

Sierra is a very beautiful terracotta shade with just the right amount of red, brown and orange to flatter the face.

Pure Red is a classic fiery warm …

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Lipstick - MLS08 Pure Red

This is probably my next HG red, next to Russian Red (which is a beautiful retro blue-based classic lippie). Where have you been all my life?

NYX Pure Red is a classic bright yellow-based red. It has orange undertones, but still a bold red. Like a succulent red tomato. It's everything I want Lady Danger to be (which is more orange by the way). Although bright and punchy, I think …

Years ago, my grandma gave me a terracotta lipstick that I really loved and never moved on from. I don't know what brand it was, but I remember the shade all too well.

The search led me to MAC Taupe, a very pretty reddish-brown somewhat rust-colored nude lippie that I've been obsessing to have for a month now. But because of the prevailing Kylie Jenner lip trend, the said …

Lipstick - wet n wild - Megalast Lip Color - Stoplight Red

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/20/2015

I really want to like this lipstick. Really I do.

I swear - this isn't a Ruby Woo dupe as most reviews claim. Probably close perhaps.

Stoplight Red is a gorgeous blue-based red at first swipe. Bright and elegant. Lovely color, lovely texture - very smooth on lips. I love the way it brightens my face and whitens my teeth.

I can forgive the generic Wet and …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Heroine

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2015

I have been coveting this lipstick since it was hyped and after more than a year, I finally have mustered the courage to buy this.

Heroine is a pretty magenta purple color. It looks very intimidating on tube, but surprisingly a very wearable color. (This was how I felt when I wore Russian Red & Girl About Town for the first time). But honestly, it's not everyone's cup of …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Gel Lipstick

First shot at a Mac Frost and a gold lipstick. Probably an impulse buy.

Honestly, this lippie is something you would either like or dislike. It depends. It's a subtle golden nude, that somehow looks like champagne.

Application is key. I think the "less is more" rule works with Gel. It's way prettier when subtle. Swiped once or twice, it will give your …
