Let’s talk about Liquid-Matte Lip Colors.
I love using liquid-matte lip colors for various reasons.
1. Easy application
2. Stays put
Today, I will be comparing 3 brands of Liquid-Matte Lip Color products.
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor – Obession
1. Highly pigmented
Left: Sephora Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Color – Orchid Luster
Right: Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain – Crimson Crush & Polished Purple
I love Sephora lip products; it never ceases to amaze me.
1. Many colors to choose from
2. Highly pigmented & long-wear
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Transylvania
This NYX product disappointed me. The product dried blotchy on my lips.
2. Many colors to choose from
3. Highly affordable
So excited to be back! So couple days ago, I was at the mall with one of my gf’s and of course, we stumbled upon Sephora.
I had a Tarte mini lip gloss set before and I found the colors to be amazing.
So naturally, when I saw the collection, I want it. =)
And of course, I was not disappointed.
The Tarte 8pc LipSurgence Collection has:
Matte Lip Tint:
– Destined, Cheerful, Glee, Generous
– Lovely, Enamored, Believe, Grateful

I finally bought myself a lovely shade of coral for my lips. Again, this is not really a haul, just some things that I wanted to try out. My current concealer isn’t that great (it’s the Cover Girl one). So, I decided to try Revlon. I have used Revlon products on a couple of photo-shoots before and the quality was not bad at all. And of course, I loveeeee DollyWink! It gives me great lengths on my eyelashes but sometimes, the volume that I want is not all there. So I purchased the Volum’Express Mascara.
P.s. As I was writing this post, I realized that the mascara I have bought is in “Glam Brown”. Stupid as I am, I will have to go and exchange it for the Black. =(
I haven’t really bought anything (personal goodies) for a while, and so I decided to make a little purchase. I went to Shoppers Drug Mart and bought a couple of things.
I really like the Quo Primer (bought it many times before), so I bought it again. I wanted a nice light sunscreen for my face and so I decided to try the La Roche-Posay Face Sunscreen with 60 SPF. So far? the fluid sunscreen is not thick or hard to apply. It actually blends really nicely. (I figured, hey… I should start protecting my skin to prevent dark spots, aging, etc).
Then I headed over to Sephora because I wanted a BB Cream. I know I know, that there are tons of BB creams (in fact, there are CC creams now). I picked up the Diorskin Nude BB Creme in 002. I love it. I mean, I’ve used the Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation before and it was lovely (I am a huge fan of Dior cosmetics). This BB creme is not thick or hard to apply. I find it really hydrating and light. It gives off this nice dewy finish.
And as you know Sephora lovers, you always get a free sample at the end of your purchase. They gave me a sample of the Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser. I know that the Boscia Black Mask works rather well, so I am going to see how great this cleanser is.
I can’t remember if I had mentioned that I have had complications to my skin (particularly on my face) a while back. Yes, it was eczema. My doctor told me it was because of the sudden weather change between China and Vancouver. (I had a vacation back in September 2011 for a month and I broke out with eczema a couple days after my arrival back in Vancouver). Anyways, it was all good because my doctor told me to think of it as a face-peel (haha, he is a pretty cool guy). So, my face is normal again (sentence sounds odd, I know) but once in a while when it’s a little more dry in the air, a bit of the eczema will happen (moisturize baby!).
The other day, I figured that I was perhaps ready for tinted moisturizer (less dry for my skin). So, I took a trip to Sephora and purchased this tinted moisturizer from the brand “Hourglass” and the product is called “Illusion Tinted Moisturizer”. It’s a couple of days since I have started using this product and so far, so good (knock on wood).
All in all, a little does go a long way, so half a pump will be enough for coverage. I mainly just use it on my T zone area (redness), around the mouth (darker) and a little under my eyes.
BTW, did I mention that this product does not contain:

I had a post last year on November 28th, 2011 stating that I will be doing my cousin’s (and her friend’s) make-up and hair.
On the day of June 16th:
– Met at her place at 8:40 am
– Their make-up was complete at around 12:30 pm
– Their hair was complete at around 1:45 pm
It was very exhausting but fun.
None the less, these are the results.
Sorry, I forgot my camera that morning; the quality is off.
Nevertheless, please still
I was just playing around with different colors and I came up with this design.
Which, by the way, inspired me for my next set of nail design.
