Life Update

I have quite a lot on my plate now so I'm cutting back from social interactions. I’m afraid I might do something wrong or hurt someone given that I’m not so much myself these days. I’ve already managed to make a number of people close to me upset, unintentionally of course, so I must barricade or isolate myself first. But just to unload and share with you how I’ve been coping, here’s what I’m up to lately:

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Jane

I've stopped posting as much as I want because I cut back on my makeup purchases. As for skincare and other results targeted products, I don't really have before and after pictures, so what's the point of posting a review right? haha. 

Anyway, the last time I bought a lipstick was way back in January (kala mo naman ang tagal na?) haha but it seriously felt like FOREVER! I mean really, even if I don't like Kylie Jenner, I don't live under a rock to not notice her lips plastered everywhere. It makes me want to apply and reapply (press repeat) my lipstick to make my lips look muy perfecto!

I don't know what's up with me but as of the moment MAC lipsticks do not appeal to me, Saying (or typing rather) it out loud made me feel like I committed a heinous crime haha. If you read my past entries, I am so very particular with lipsticks. I have the following as my criteria:
ease of applying (it has to last! no need for concealer, lipliner and all other seremonyas) and reapplying (no need to wipe off to re-do entire lip),
how it fades (no dreaded lip liner effect please!), 
moisture (no need to apply lip balm), 
scent, 
color.. 

so you can just figure out I've managed to eliminate almost every lipstick brand on the market hahaha!

I avoid spur of the moment purchases and make sure I've read enough reviews to justify a purchase.

So okay here's  another thing: I do splurge on lipsticks. So I make sure I end up with something that I would really finish to the last bit. And I wait for at least a month after settling on a brand and color before buying just to gauge how much I really like it. Hahaha. See, I'm still pretty hard on myself.

Long story short, NARS Audacious made the cut. I still have Brigitte and Anna on my stash but want another neutral color but one that pops.
