My site went down during a weekend, when I have more time to actually come up with entries. Since I couldn’t recall now what I have intended to blog, I might as well post some stuff I did some weekends ago. Beauty editorial-ish take for this photo:
What do you think? I’m too immersed in styling and art direction thanks to my work. I really hope that this reflects in photography.
And because I have two Revlon products in the image about, I will be talking about it. For a change, I will be discussing beauty stuff. May I just add that the necklace is a random find. I’m taking a break from all the knots and chain fancy I’ve been having recently.
Revlon products are competitively priced, and the quality is outstanding. This I have to say for their lipsticks since I still haven’t opened my PhotoReady compact makeup. I have tried their matte lipstick months ago and that convinced me to make the switch from Maybelline to Revlon. I like Maybelline (whole lot cheaper) but their lipsticks don’t last as long as the Revlon ones. I actually tried two Maybelline products, one was Watershine (which doesn’t last long on the lips, but the color was striking) and the other was a Color Sensational lipstick (in Madison Mauve, I think) which lasted longer than the Watershine although it can easily be wiped off especially after eating.
If I had the patience and the time to reapply during the day I’d go for them Maybelline lipsticks. Here is a girl who is not that fond of checking her face in the mirror every so often, so one application should do the trick. My current Revlon set consists of a Cocoa Craving matte lipstick and a ColorStay in Carnation. The color really stays and the consistency is creamy enough, making it a breeze to apply.
I dig the matte over ColorStay just because there is a subtle shimmer with the latter. I like stars and I am isparkleen but I don’t like everything sparkly. But I have to say that the ColorStay in Carnation is a really nice shade of pink. My officemate have the same lipstick, we both found out we were wearing the same shade when she saw me applying it. We don’t have the same complexion but it looked good on us both.
I wish I was able to take a picture of Cocoa Craving, but its current state is nowhere near photogenic. It melted quite a bit; I don’t know whether Manila weather or that my kit is next to my baon for lunch is to blame. But as with any lipstick on the verge of actually melting that it can already go into a pot, storing them inside the refrigerator can do wonders and somehow revert it to its original lipstick state.
