just acquired

maybelline dream mousse bronzer in sun glow
i love it. been using it daily since i got it. i think the best way to apply it is simply by using your fingers and make circular motions on the apples of your cheeks. it's sheer. very hard to overdo it. therefore it gives me the natural glow. my skin looks definitely healthy and ready for summer. it's so soft, as expected owing to the fact that it's a mousse, therefore it's whipped.
pot is small. im getting a backup soon.

look how it made my cheekbones beautifully defined.

tropez lip liner in pink, w a lipbrush
styli style waterproof lip liner in crimson
styli style waterproof lip liner in nude
wet n wild lip liner in nude 666
maybelline forever metallics lip pencil in red

swatches and initial review
tropez pink lip liner - the shade is cute but the formula is too waxy, havent even finished swatching it and it starts smudging.. only great thing is that its other end is a lipbrush
styli style line and seal water proof in nude - nude shade is a bit darker than the nude that most of us would expect; it is waterproof though, creamy when swatched but a bit harder to apply on the lips
styli style line and seal water proof in crimson - love the color..same with the nude version, harder to apply on the lips, tugs a bit..
wet n wild lip liner in 666 - looks more of a dark bronze than nude on me
maybelline forever metallics lip pencil in red - i love the color! it is a fat pencil that gives a creamy shade of metallic red. rich rich rich! yea and smudges big time too.. still thinking of a way to fix that issue as i really love its shade

nyx round lipsticks in:
indian pink - i expect since it's an "indian" pink, a hint of saffron is to be expected..color is beautiful for that casual walk w my kids..there are days though that it turns too orangey on me..i wonder why..
circe - peachy, with a little bit of frost
snow white -looks red on the tube but gives matte crimson shade when applied, a bit drying but the color is very rich..

charm travel pro
only able to use the stippling brush for a lot of times and i love it!
it does the work giving me a flawless look when used with a liquid foundation. its size is just right for my face. im so happy. its hair dries faster too! sadly though, i noticed some hair breakage, no, not shedding. the black hairs i noticed breaks when i wash it. 2-3 hairs for the past 3 washes have broken :( too bad its no longer sold these brushes.. not sure if it's discontinued but i really want another one and i'm not sure that if i get the full-sized ones, i will love it the same as the travel-sized version..

be glorious,
