Into the Lipstick Jungle

I won something very useful in an event I attended today:

Sony Microvault

Sony Microvault 4GB! :)

Yes, it’s that small!

Yay for a new flash drive!

Anyway, two of my college friends, Claud and Hannah, were tweeting each other yesterday. Hannah would like to learn more about makeup, same with Claud. But with the hundreds of tutorials on the Net, it’s hard to figure out where to start.

I’m no makeup expert (heck, I can barely perfect putting eyeliner on my lower lid), but I did learn from the Internet. More often than not, work will require girls to wear makeup to look more presentable. In my case, I look too pale when I go out with nothing but powder on, so one of my early makeup purchases was lipstick. I didn’t wanna splurge right ahead and buy known brands such as MAC or Chanel. They say those brands are really good but I thought working my way up the price ladder would be a better option. After all, I still have no idea then what shade would suit me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still pretty unsure with my purchases. Who knows if it can cause allergies? What I do know for a fact that nude shades won’t work on me because pale is the look I’m avoiding.

I can still remember my first lipstick purchase (which was almost two years ago)—Watershine-something from Maybelline. Kept seeing their ads in magazines (oftentimes a spread), so I gave it a try. Color was nice but you have to apply one too many times. And since I’m not that vain, retouching for me, is a chore. So I had to find something that will last for almost the whole day.

A couple of months after, I thought, maybe, just maybe, matte would suit me more. I’m no fan of super glossy lips and I don’t want to look like I just ate lechon. I didn’t even like lipgloss even when it was all the rage in high school. Look at that lipstick now:

Revlon lipstick

Revlon matte lipstick

I will definitely purchase this again. :)

To sum this endless blah, told Hannah to try products and work her way up. I’m no beauty expert but I guess we all have to start somewhere, right?
