Colourpop x Hello Kitty Lippie Stix Date Mate Swatch and Mini Review

Here's a swatch of the limited edition Colourpop x Hello Kitty Lippie Stix in the shade Date Mate. I only bought 1 item from the collection. I ordered it from an Instagram seller last November and I am posting this swatch after almost a year of owning the Lippie Stix.

           Long Lasting
           Cute and Easy to use packaging
           Very Matte Texture 
           Same Scent with other Colourpop Lippie Stix 

CONS: Somewhat Drying 
             Not easy to apply because of the very matte formula there's a lil bit of tugging

I only bought 1 Lippie Stix from the collection but they launch a bunch of other Hello Kitty makeup items and its limited edition. Probably the time I am posting this it is not available in their website anymore but you can check in ebay and other IG sellers if they still sell those.

Mac Please Me Lipstick Swatch

Hi everyone, Happy new year! I know its very late but I have to greet you all a Happy New Year and a Happy Valentine's Day. Since my stay here in Riyadh, I had the chance to shop at my favorite brand's stores in the mall like Mac, H&M, Sephora, Skechers and more. last Feb 4, we attended a royal wedding and I bought a really nice gown which is a long bold pink one. I only brought my mac Candy Yum-yum and Viva Glam Nicki lipstick with me when I came here so I decided to buy a nice muted pink lipstick that goes well with my gown and my look for that night. I was meaning to get please me when I'm still in the Philippines but hasitant at the same time because I never swatch it before and got no chance to visit the store in Manila. Good thing there's Mac counters in every malls we visited here in KSA. Finally, after swatching Mac Please Me, I bought it and used it for the wedding night. I love how it compliments my yellowish medium skintone and the muted pink goes well with my bold dress. I love everything about it and I am really satisfied with my purchased.

Real Techniques MakeUp Brush

Are you a makeup junky? do you used your finger to blend your eyeshadows? As a beginner, I loved to try different techniques to apply makeup. I don't usually apply eyeshadow for my everyday look but I'm always wearing my favorite shade of lipstick and bb cream just to brighten up my whole face.
One of the best and popular makeup tool you needed is the brushes, you need a brush that applies your makeup flawlessly,with soft britles and last for a long time. I've watched many youtube makeup tutorials and one of the recommended makeup brush brand is the Real Techniques. I preordered mine from Smellin Good of Fb straight form the US, since the very first day that I tried the foundation and detailer brush I am captivated. I realized the true purpose of using these tools, glad they have sets for beginners. Will post a brief review of the brushes when I have a good quality camera.


Forever21 Haul

Hi everyone!
I'm logging in back to blog and share the things I loved, the new things I experienced here in Riyadh. Yes, I am currently away from my loved ones in PI for two years. Before I flew here in KSA I ordered some few basic essentials from SmartShoppers, I am a forever21 baby and as much as I wanted to dress like a hippy doll here in Riyadh we were not allowed to go out without our abaya on. Since the weather here is humid hot, basic cotton shirts or tank tops would be nice underneath our abaya. Here's what I ordered online, I am hoping that they're Forever21 shops here in Riyadh.

                      forever21 locket necklace, headband, basic layering camisole tops


                           Forever21 bracelet, earrings, headbands and free tote bag.

Mac Candy Yum -Yum Lipstick Swatch

I love pink lipstick so much and Mac has many different pink shades suitable for every skin tone. I have a warm, yellow undertone and cool toned lipstick like Mac Pink Nouveau turns grayish on me. I already bought few pink lipstick before like Nars Schiap and I love the color but not the semi matte texture, it dried out my lips every time I'm wearing it so I decided to sell it and buy a new hot pink lippy. I read about this super neon pink lippy in one of candy mag's issue last year, a lot of beauty bloggers are raving about this Mac Candy Yum-Yum and I was empress with the shade although I'm also hesitant about buying a wrong shade for me since candy yum-yum is a cool toned. after a few sleepless nights thinking which one to buy I already decided to go with candy yum-yum. Thank God it suited me really well (in my opinion), it didn't turn too grayish on me. I love the bright neon pink that last the whole day.

- Has Mac's signature vanilla scent
- Matte texture
- Cool tone pink lipstick
- Glides smoothly on lips
- Opaque coverage
- A little drying
- Stays about 4-6 hours without reapplying 
- Leaves a nice pink tint on lips when the color fades
- Bright neon pink shade suitable for both warm and cool toned girls
- Belongs to Mac's Permanent Lipstick Shades
