Summer Lipstick: Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick in Pink in the Afternoon



     Rich and emollient. Just like how lip balm feels on lips

What Dreams Are Made Of: Tarte Be Mattenificent Palette

     I am swooning over this spring edition palette from Tarte!

     I have been searching high and low for the perfect MATTE and NEUTRAL palette. I can't just find enough justification to splurge on a sparkly shimmery color range since I have no doubts that such kind of palette will only go to waste with my kind of everyday looks. I bought two matte neutral eyeshadows from Inglot and they already cost me P700.00 (15 USD or 7.5USD per refill) without a container! Arrgh.

      Until I saw this palette being featured as one of the most recommended spring limited edition palette. I just had to get my hands on it! I contacted friends abroad to snap a palette for me and waited for 7 excruciatingly long weeks just to get it. Now it's mine!!!

      While this palette costs 36USD (almost P1600 + taxes), it is more cost efficient for me because it contains 6 eyeshadows, 1 blush, 2 eyeliners and a brush to boot. So each color in the palette costs only 4USD!

      I also looked up Urban Decay naked 1-3 but decided that the shining-shimmering-splendid options are a no-no for me. 

     Unfortunately, I don't have the heart to play with it just yet. I am still in the "adore-me-don't-you-dare-touch-me" stage. So I just gaze at this adoringly and hopefully will come to my senses soon enough and use it! haha

     The fact that this is made of Amazonian Clay (never mind that I don't know the benefit of Amazonian clay on one's skin) and is free of parabens are two additional points up in my book.

     Now, on to the pictures: Drumroll please.


I just love the color purple, so chic!

This palette is quite heavy too!

Tarte even included a step by step tutorial on how to use the palette






I can tell that all the shades included in the palette were well-thought of. They coordinate nicely just like how cream goes with coffee =)

I was feeling a little "meh" today. So i swiped some serious color on my lips. Of course, I chose the most pigmented and brightest of all my lipsticks.
