REVIEW: NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colors Lipsticks


Hi Ladies! How's your week? I have lots of pending blog updates to post but as usual I'm tired as hell everyday after work. The traffic jam is killing me! But I don't have a choice anyway.

So let me go straight to this post. For those of you who don't know, back in college I was into online selling of cosmetic brands straight from the US. That was the time I got very fond of lipsticks. Of all makeups, lipstick is really my choice. I have dark lips due to Asthma when I was seven and as time went on it became darker and darker. But thankfully now it is not as dark just like before. And one of the lipstick brands that I first tried is this NYX Lip Smacking Fun Color Lipstick.


What is it? 
It's a velvet-textured lipstick formulated with mineral oils to provide moisturizing benefits and rich colors. NYX's best selling lipstick, the Round lipstick offers long-lasting, non-smudging colors (NYX Website)  I own 4 different shades of this lipstick. And I purchased this 6 months ago. Hahaha! I never knew that I'll be blogging again and I even forgot this product. Natabunan na kasi ng mga bago. And this is one of the best selling products online when I was still doing online selling.

Packaging?

It is a black tube with a cute font on the packaging. It looks cheap but in 6 months time I had this it didn't break unlike the Pinkies Collection Lipstick I owned. I love the bottom part of it that shows the color of lipstick. It has an easy twist lippies and it glides so smoothly whenever you twist it down.

Price?

I bought this for 90 pesos at that time. I don't know if they increased their price. But for those who don't want to purchase this online, it is locally available at Pure Beauty in Serendra and I think NYX Philippines recently open at SM Fairview.

My Review.

Pros..

  • So creamy and pigmented! I love how it glides smoothly on my lips. One swatch and you'll be fine.
  • A wide selection of shades. You're gonna drool over the hundred color to choose from.
  • The scent. It has a Vanilla scent that I love. When I put this one I just want to eat the lippie because it really smells delicious.
  • The price. Very affordable. This is the product I bought without fear of wasting the money. 
Cons..
  • Melts easily. I remember I bought this last summer. It really melts when I open the lipstick. This is not good in hot temperature. You can see the melted Louisiana shade below.
  • Doesn't stay long. You need to apply this one every now and then.
  • Use lip balm. It may dries your lips especially in humid places.
Overall..

I definitely love this lipstick. It's my first love! They are cheap and make you beautiful. I just have to put it in the refrigerator to maintain the shape of the lipstick. I love that I got a hard time picking for the colors to buy because they really have pretty colors to choose from. Swatches here at their website.

Repurchase?

Yes! I would love to have the remaining shades!

Here are the NYX Lipsticks I bought.. 
NYX Round Lipstick in Fire

I am not a Red lipstick fan because I'm afraid to look skanky.
 But this is definitely suited for Morena girls.
NYX Round lipstick in Sierra
This shade is perfect for "No Makeup" Look.
NYX Round Lipstick in Louisiana
This is the ruined lipstick! Its my fave. It melted and I just use lipstick brush for me to use this.

I am really in looove with this color!
NYXRound Lipstick in Frappucino
I forgot to do a skin swatch of this. This is too pale for me and
 I think this is suited for those who have a fair skin.

Have you tried one of NYX Round Lipsticks? How is it for you?

REVIEW: OMG (Oh My Golly) Mini Nail Color



Hi Ladies!

This is a late post actually. I scheduled this post yesterday but it's my Mom's birthday and I thought I'll gonna have time on blogging. So this is just a review of a nail polish I got last weekend while strolling at Department Store at SM Manila. I decided to try this for a week before giving out some of my thoughts about this.


What is it?

Oh My Golly is a local brand of nail polish by Klik manufactured by Ming Mei Cosmetics. It is one of the popular nail polish because of its trendy colors that goes with every style. I actually bought two colors; Prom Queen and Bikini. I'm so in love with this color. The name suits the color itself. It is really perfect for proms, don't you think? Ooh! How I miss high school.

Packaging?

This packaging is different from the other OMG nail polish I saw while choosing the color I want to buy. I think this is the packaging for the Mini nail polish. Not sure of it though. The bottle contains 8 ml which is enough for me. I really want nail polish that comes with this size. Admit it, you always end up having a dried up nail polish because you bought the full size.This bottle is really good for those who want to try the product first before jumping to the bigger size. 

Price?

Each bottle contains 8 ml for Php 20.00. Not bad ah. 






My Review.

Pros..
  • Affordable. 
  • I love how the color matches my skin.
  • Very opaque. 1-2 colors are enough to cover your nails.
  • Unique names that suited the color.
  • Easy to use because of the curve at the handle.
Cons..
  • I don't like the smell. It is like the Balloon in the tube, the one you blow with a small, thick straw. If you had an awesome childhood you know what I mean. Haha.
  • The long strand of the brush. I personally hate brushes with a long strand, I prefer a brush similar with Bobbi. 
  • Not quick dry. I immobilize my hand for an hour just to make sure it will not mess up. 
  • Doesn't last long. It started to chip out after three or four days.
Overall..

Hmm. What can I say I love everything that comes in Purple and Red. I'm being biased here. Hehe. If this product lasts long for a week or two it will be great. I love how OMG named their polishes with an eye catching names. The color are so trendy that you want to buy one color every shade. This brand is my favorite so far. But I'm not replacing Bobbi as my top favorite because I love their brush. 

Repurchase?

Definitely, YES! I would love to own more colors of it.

Nail swatches..

OMG PROM DATE
Sorry for the lightning. It's a little bit yellowish but I guess the nail color is still visible.
OMG BIKINI

UAAP 76th CDC 2013 Rants



Hi Ladies!

How's your weekend? I had a great weekend with le bf at their house as we watch the annual UAAP 76th Cheer dance Competition 2013 together with his sister and cousin. I am a fan of cheer dance as some of you know that I am a self-proclaimed dancer. And I totally brag about UP's excellent performance and I am competent this time that they will win the title again! And I love the UST theme every year. Rawr!


But I was definitely wrong. What happen UP?! Masyado ba sila nakampante?

The dance choreography, the stunts, the pyramids are perfect! But what happen to clean execution of the performance? If naging malinis 9/15 sana sila. Tsk!

And UST!! Hindi ko kinayang panuorin! The performance was totally devastating. If the two school mentioned did the pyramid well minus the wobbly effect they deserve to be on the top.

If you haven't see the performances here's the videos..

2ND RUNNER UP: La Salle, they should be the champion.


For me, I like them to be the winner. The angst of the performance! Wow! Bitter ako na hindi sila ang nanalo. The theme should have a SPG though.

1ST RUNNER UP: UP, sayaaaaaaang!


Depress pa din ako dito. Di ko talaga tanggap! But still I love them. They are totally my idol!

CHAMPION: NU, most improved!


I don't like the theme. Pero aminin niyo napa-wow kayo! They really exerted an effort and as we can see the fruit of their labor has come. I can see the determination as they did their performance. Well done Bulldogs! Keep it up!

Kudos kay Ate! You roooock!

Well, bawi na lang UST next year. I know you'll do better. 

Congratulation to the winners! Thank you for giving us a great performance :)


That's it for now and thank you for visiting my blog ladies.
Stay beautiful. Always!

Fifty Shades of Grey Official Movie Cast




Hi Ladies!

How's your week? I hope everything is fine with you. I just wanna share with you this news I am currently mourning for the past few days. Seriously, I'm on the stage of denial pa. Ha ha ha. Hope everybody or some of you can relate about this.


I've been a bookworm ever since. And as a girl, I love books with a touch of romance but I am not a fan of book series those with sequels and stuffs, I feel so bitin whenever I finished a book in a series. The first book I read with a sequel is the Twilight that I'm sure you're familiar with. The next book I got hooked up to is the Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L James.

And oops! Don't think of me as a perv!! Ha Ha Ha! I know this book contains sensual and erotic scenes but hey! It's a trilogy about the deepening relationship of Anastacia Steel and (my baby) Christian Grey.




And now the Fifty Shades of Grey will be on a big screen soooon. *Whoops kiri whoops* 

No definite time yet as per E.L James but some say it will be on August 1, 2014. And after a year of speculation who will be our Christian Grey and his Anastacia Steele, E.L James finally announced the official two major cast of the film. 

From twitter: @E_L_James
Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam

When I first heard that EL James tweeted about the official cast I got so excited. This is all we've been waiting for, or it is just me? And when I saw who are the lucky stars who'll gonna play the provocative romance of all time, I was devastated. And I was like.. THIS CAN'T BEEEEEEEEE!

Of course, as a fan you have a name to raise up for the coveted part. And I seriously want Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel! Nasaan ang hustisya?!


Photo Credits


I don't see Charlie Hunnam as MY Chrisitian Grey! I don't care about Anastacia Steele and the rest of the cast but Christian Grey's role is so important! He should be macho, nakakatulo laway guy. I am so disappointed. But what else I can do? I'll still gonna watch the movie whatever it takes. 

Here are some movie poster parody.. You'll see how much fans want Matt Bomer.









“Fifty Shades of Grey” has become a global phenomenon and the trilogy has been translated in 50 languages worldwide since its release. To date, the “Fifty Shades” trilogy has sold over 70 million copies worldwide in e-book and print, making it one of the fastest-selling book series ever.
Universal and Focus acquired the rights to the three books in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy in March 2012. Focus Features will market and distribute the first film in partnership with Universal.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” follows the relationship of 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey and college student Anastasia Steele. Subsequent novels in the series, “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed,” explore the couple’s deepening relationship. (People.com)
Well, we'll just hope that the movie turns out so well. And I just wonder how they will turn that book into live?! Whoa la la! Impress us Universal Studio and Sam Taylor-Johnson who will be directing the film.

That's all. Sarap lang ibuhos ang sama ng loob ha ha ha! Later's baby!
