30 Days of Lipstick Challenge Day 10: Favorite Nude Lipstick

Hi!

I can't believe it's already Day 10 of my #30daysoflipstick Challenge. I am having a lot of fun with this challenge. If you are a lover of lipsticks, you are free to do this challenge in Instagram too. :)
I would love to see you collections!


Day 10's challenge is FAVORITE NUDE. I can't decide on just one favorite since I have quite a few but I thought I'd go with these two. I love Fashion 21 All-Day Matte Lipstick in Bronze and CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Sultry.


Both look nude on me but they don't wash me out or make me look sick. Both have great staying power and the formula is great. I love that these are so versatile. I can use it for daytime for a natural look and pair it with a smoke eye for a night out. 

That't is for my favorite nude lipsticks. What's you favorite nude lippie?

Thanks for dropping by!

Quick Make Up Routine for Busy Moms



Hi! Friends.

Being a mom sometimes mean you have to juggle so many things at once. I've seen moms who are constantly in demand that they have no time to even put a little make up on. Some are just clueless about how to apply make up. I've had friends tell me that they don't know what to do or what to use to look at least presentable when they go out. I think it is very important to give yourself at least 10 minutes to prepare whenever you need to go out even if it's just running errands or paying the bills. 

So I thought I'd share with you my very quick make up routine when I have just 10 minutes to prepare.

30 Days of Lipstick Challenge Day 9: Nudes

Hello! Love Bugs.

Today's Day 9 of my 30 Days of Lipstick Challenge! The challenge for today is NUDES. 


These are my lovely, lovely nude lipsticks. I wasn't a big fan of nude lipsticks before because I find them too boring. I always had this penchant for bold lipstick shades because I am, most of the time, lazy to do my eye make up. Bold lipsticks just make it so easy for me. But just last year, I became a nude lippie convert, all thanks to my favorite YT beauty gurus like Sonia Castaneda and Judy Travis. They just make nude lipsticks look oh so pretty. So I thought I'd give it a chance, and my babies just grew more and more since then. 

Those are my nude lipsticks and thanks for dropping by! :)

30 Days of Lipstick Challenge Day 8: Favorite Pink Lipstick

Hi! Friends.

It's Day 8 of my 30 Days of Lipstick Challenge! Today's challenge is FAVORITE PINK LIPSTICK. 


My favorite pink lipstick is NYX Round Lipstick in Minimalism. It's a very creamy rosy pink that doesn't have hints of brown or orange. It's a great MLBB for me. I love that it's so creamy and smooth. The color is so opaque and it doesn't dry my lips out. 

That's it for Day 8! What's your favorite pink lipstick?

Thanks for dropping by!

30 Days of Lipstick Challenge Day 7: Pinks

Hello, friends!

Thank you for dropping by my blog! I hope you're in great spirits today!

Today is Day 7 of my #30daysoflipstick Challenge. The challenge is PINKS. I thought, at first, that majority of my lipstick collection are red lipsticks but after I took this pic I was clearly mistaken. Turns out I have more pinks. This collection contains my nude pink, light pinks, rosy pinks, and hot pinks. 


I am not a big fan of Barbie pink lipsticks that's why most of my pinks lean toward the neutral side. I have a few hot pinks like CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Spellbound and Nyx Extreme Lip Creme in Strawberry Jam. That's it for DAY 7: PINKS. 

Thanks for dropping by!

30 Days of Lipstick Challenge Day 6: Favorite Red Lipsstck

Hello there, friends!

It's Day 6 of my #30daysoflipstick Challenge. Today's challenge if FAVORITE RED LIPSTICK.

Boy! This is a tough one! I love red lipsticks so much that I can't really choose a favorite but I decided it would have to be M&Co. Long Lasting Matte Lipstick in Brick Red which I also did a review here and here.


I am in love with this. It has great color payoff, consistency, formula, and lasting-power - and not to mention, it's affordable. I love red lipstick equally but I tend to gravitate towards those with matte finish. Red is already a bold color and a matte finish kind of balances it out. 

That's it for Day 6: Favorite Red Lipstick.

What's you favorite red lipstick?

Thanks for dropping by!

30 Days of Lipstick Challenge Day 5: Reds

Hi! Guys.

I forgot to post my 30 Days of Lipstick Day 5 photo yesterday. It was kind of a busy Sunday for me. In the morning, my sisters and I went to Divisoria to buy some party stuff for Yomi's 2nd Birthday. If you are planning a DIY Birthday party on a budget, Divi's the place to go to. We found super cute paper plates for 35 Pesos (10 pcs), paper cups for 25 Pesos (10 pcs), and  letter balloons for 12 Pesos each. It's a DIY party planner's  and a practical mom's heaven. :) And for dinner, my husband and I met some friends in Greenbelt and went home around midnight so I wasn't able to post anymore.

Anyway enough with my ramblings, this is DAY 5: REDS.


Tadah! Here's my humble red lipstick collection. I think this makes up most of my collection. (correction: this does not make up most of my collection. I have pinks than red lipstick as of the moment. ) I am a huge lover of red lipsticks because it makes me feel sexy and confident. It's also my go-to shade when I am lazy to put any eye make up on. It gives me an instant polished look. Red lipstick is just so timeless and elegant in my opinion. It will never go out of style. I think every woman can rock a red lipstick no matter what skin tone she has.
Here ate some selfies of me rocking red lips. :)

That's it for Day 5: Reds!

30 Days of Lipstick Challenge Day 4: Best Packaging


Hi! Guys.


It's already Day 4 of my 30 days of Lipstick Challenge! Hopefully I can finish this up until Day 30! Anyway, today's category is BEST PACKAGING. The lipsticks that I think have the best packaging would be from MAC. Somehow the simple, sleek and classy bullet really appeals to me. It feels very sturdy as well. It has a timeless design and timeless pieces are always, always  pretty in my book. 

That's it for Day 4! What lipstick do you think has the best packaging?

Thanks for dropping by!

Pinkies Collection Lipstick

Hi! Friends.

I've been meaning to write my thoughts on this a few weeks ago but I just don't know why I kept on forgetting. It was just sitting in my drafts folder waiting to see the light of day. Hehe! Well finally, here it is!

30 Days of Lipstick Challenge Day 2: Most Worn

Hello! Gal pals!

Today's the second day of my #30daysoflipstick Challenge. In case you missed Day 1, here's the link Day 1: Favorite Lipstick Brand. Anyway, Day 2 is MOST WORN and my most worn lipstick is Everbilena Matte Lipstick in Mirrored Mocha.


30 Days of Lipstick Challenge Day 1: Favorite Lipstick Brand


Hi Friends!

If you follow me on IG, I'm sure you all know that I just recently finished doing the #30daysofbeauty challenge. The task is to post photos of beauty stuff for 30 days. Each day has a specific category or item. For example, Day 1: Favorite Lipstick so I posted a photo of my favorite lipstick. I did this challenge everyday for 30 days and I was able to finish it! Some of my IG friends were kinda sad that it was over. I guess they like looking at make up pics as much as I do too. Anyway, I was also kinda sad it was over so I decided to make my own version and I call it #30daysoflipstick.

My Affordable Make Up Storage and Brush Holder

Hi! Everyone!

I've been active in IG lately and been browsing through a lot of make up related posts. One of the posts I like looking at is make up storage. Beauty gurus and make up enthusiasts in the US have these clear, acrylic drawers and glass brush holders that look so pretty on their vanities. I was lemming over it for a long time so I searched local online stores who sell something similar. I was able to find some that sell acrylic drawers and brush holders but they were very expensive for me. The acryloc drawers go for Php 3K ++ and acrylic brush holder with beads retail for Php 500! Geez, I can already buy milk and diapers with that amount. So the cheapskate in me decided to search for something far more affordable and can still hold all my make up.

100 Years of Trusted Nivea Care Now in a New Bottle

Hi! Friends.

When I was young, I would always see this blue tin can on my lola's vanity. Inside it was a white velvet cream that smelled so dainty and fresh. It was my grandmother's daily moisturizer. Because of that, I always associated that blue tin can to skin care and when I think of moisturizers that would always come to mind. Even Nivea's scent is memorable. A single whiff takes me back to my childhood during the days when I would play around lola's vanity. It's amazing that I could still see the most iconic Nivea Creme in stores today proving that it really is a brand that has resonated through generations.

Ever Bilena Shade Lipstick

Hi Everyone!

Recently, I subjected myself to a no-buy phase for lipsticks. I already have waaaaay too many and I wanted to use them more often. They do expire so I don't want a perfectly gorgeous lipstick to go to waste just because I wasn't able to use it. I thought I was doing well until I saw Sunshine Cruz's IG account where she posted a photo of the new Ever Bilena lipsticks to come out soon. I knew right then that I had to check them out once they come out so I made a little exception to the rule. Here they are.

New Nichido Volume Lash mascara

Hi! Friends.

If you follow me on Instagram (I hope you are. If not yet, you can follow me at @momgonevain . Thank you!), you've probably seen my post about the new mascaras from Nichido Cosmetics. When I first saw them, the packaging immediately reminded me of Maybelline mascaras. Hoping that they'd perform as well as Maybelline's, I decided to purchase one and see if I'd like it. I got the Volume Lash Mascara and here's what I think about it.

What's New at the Philippine Make Up Aisle: Ever Bilena Shade Lipsticks

What's New at the Philippine Beauty Aisle: Nichido Mascaras

 Hi! Girl friends.

 I meant to make What's New at the Philippine Drugstore the title of this post (or maybe series) but I thought it might confuse some since we don't usually find different make up brands in our local drugstores unlike what they have in the US. Some might think I'm referring to Mercury Drug if I say "drugstore" so I just changed it to What's New at the Philippine Beauty Aisle. (Is it good or the first one's better? Please let me know.)

New! San San HD Concealer

Hi Friends!

Here's the last installment in the San San HD (High Definition) series! I already did a review on the HD Foundation and the HD Lipsticks. I did not get the HD Two-way Cake Foundation  because I still have San San's Two-way Cake from their regular line.  So without further ado,  here's what I think about the HD Concealer.
