The Balm Liquid lipstick review


I am currently wearing this lippie as I am writing this review. I honestly did not know that The Balm have come up with liquid lipsticks ever since I received these. But to my surprise, the wear of it is quite pleasant and comfortable.

Now lets get down to the nitty gritty… The The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes in Loyal & Doting that I have is nice.. It is wearable, comfortable and travel friendly. But the thing for me that separates it from other liquid lipsticks is that, it has a certain menthol scent on application. I also feel a little bit of sticky-ness on my lips when I do the thing you do when you apply lipstick. But pleasantly sticky nonetheless.

In terms of product transfer, there is not so much that it would be a problem. You have to give it time to dry first until you try to kiss a baby or something. But when it comes to lasting power, I couldn’t be too sure because I have definitely tried better in my day. But this can be a good option that is readily available in the market.

If you, my readers were to ask me which of these two are my favorite, it has to be Loyal! I love a good and lasting red liquid lipstick!

February Favorites


For this month’s February faves, I have basically posted about the products I have been using on the daily to work and the bits in between. There are definitely some hidden gems in here. So start reading! x

Maybelline Master Sculpt on 01 Light/Medium is clearly the first one on my list of faves this month. Just incase you missed it, this is the review I made on it recently. Long story short, this definitely exceeded my expectations. everyone should grab this palette. Immediately. After an OKAY review of the Rimmel London Match Perfection on 040 Soft Beige, link here! I decided to throw it in my makeup regime before work and to my surprise, it worked out quite well. The Soft Beige shade works well under my eyes to balance out my dark circles without it looking too heavy.

dsc09775I don’t think I have ever worn a liquid lipstick as much as I have with Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow. Aside from Kat Von D liquid lipsticks to be on the comfortable wearing side, this shade is SO wearable for a normal work day. It isn’t too bear nor too dressy. LORAC Pro To Go has been in my drawers for a considerable amount of months and I thought maybe this month, I should put more effort on my eyes to hide my veiny lids. My most used shades in this palette have got to be Shell and Cafe for the day time and then adding in Chai for the night(rarely). Link to a review I made a while back here!


I always do this, to help make use of all my lovely mascaras, I pick one mascara to use for the whole month and this time, it was the L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara. It gives a visible lift and is waterproof. What more do you want?

In terms of skin care, I restocked with the Maybelline Micellar Water(review on this coming SOON!) to remove my makeup and Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser to further clean everything off my face.

Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie | The Review


Let me tell you… I was actually surprised with how well this product turned out. I didn’t know much about the brand Happy Skin, all I literally knew was that it was a Filipino brand with excellent branding. Initially, I kind of had a bad notion of local beauty brands by not being so up to par with international drugstore brands, which made me not so keen on getting it in the first place. But this product really changed my mind!

The lippies on the photo above are from the Preview X Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie Set. The two shades in this box are Too Cool(nude) and Hot Stuff(dark berry). The two are very contrasting shades when put side to side but are equally lovely side by side.

When I first received this(it was a gift[add link to post]), I was already so eager to try it, so I did. And to my surprise, it was pretty darn amazing. Upon initial application, it glided smoothly on the lips very well and settled comfortably. 

What I was so WOW-ed about was that it was moisturizing and stayed on for a good amount of time, even after a meal or too. How is that even possible?! In the few times that I have worn this during the holidays, my lips never felt dry what so ever because typical matte lipsticks have that effect.



A little bird told me that Happy Skin products are made in Taiwan, Korea, but most of them are produced in Japan and packaged in the Philippines. No wonder they are such impressive products!

Too Cool is a great nude shade to have in your lippie collection! Aside from nudes being everyone’s favorite shade, it noticeably lasts pretty long on the lips! Hot Stuff reminds me of the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Kate Moss Lipstick in 107 and I can’t believe I am saying this, but I think this one is better!

Aside from getting this on their website or at their counters in selected malls, you can readily grab this online on Zalora!
