Aside from my make up essentials, I added lipstick to avoid looking like a zombie. I was frustrated finding the right formula for me because some makes my lips chappy, dry and doesn’t stay longer. Until I tried Chanel, Clinique, Benefit, YSL, Clarins, Nars, Bobby Brown and M.A.C and become my lips best friend.
Those brands are my go-to. The said high end brands really stays longer (tried and tested) and not the usual colours from drug store brands or maybe it depends on body chemistry- something like that. Napagod na kasi ako kakabili ng drug store lippies na maya’t maya, re-touch hassle.
I opted to collect M.A.C bullets because it is much cheaper compare brands that are mentioned above and I am just crazy filling my acrylic organizer. I have no plans collecting everything from M.A.C because all cosmetics has a shelf life, le sigh* I am just finding the right one that compliments my skin and I am glad that most are M.A.C staples.
- Some beauty experts says 1 to 2 years, even 4 years when stored in refrigerator. Best move, smell the old tube and when it smells rancid… TOSS IT!
- Lipglosses/chapsticks: 2 years
My top 3 brands that I love are: Chanel, NARS and M.A.C.
If I get sincere compliments especially from my husband, I know it is really good on me 🙂 Lipstick can really change a mood, gives an instant glow and as I said an antidote! I am happy to find the perfect shade of Red which is M.A.C’s Russian Red. My husband loves it so much, most boys doesn’t appreciate red lipstick… heck, even he doesn’t like it- I will still wear it as long as it looks good on me 🙂 I just don’t understand men who doesn’t like girls to wear even a little make-up! C’mon, some of your heads were like under exorcism when you see a pretty girl with make-up and you want your partner to look like a zombie or tindera sa talipapa.

You can really can get away from everything by just using face powder, mascara and lipstick! it’s okay to wear make-up just don’t over do it and most of all: Don’t sleep with make-up on. Cleanse!
M.A.C lipstick and other brands can be drying so don’t forget to put some lip conditioner and exfoliate even once a week. Nothing beats a smooth lips when kissing LOL, the color is just an added spice 🙂
