Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Lovely | The Review

DSC01411

Ever since Anastasia Beverly Hills came out with their range of Liquid Lipsticks, they have been dominating the makeup world by storm, with every long wearing shade at a time.

TBH, I am going to make this review short because I am currently writing to you while getting my highlights done and the G-Ma that I am forgot to bring her eyeglasses! I am BLIND ya’ll!


I have a lot of liquid lipsticks during my time in the blogosphere. Yet I am still in the search of the next best thing.

The ABH Liquid Lipstick in Hollywood is not one I would wear everyday but definitely one I would go back to when I am feeling ‘extra’.

The shade itself is a bit too bright for my taste. I feel that it doesn’t look amazing against my skin tone too. It also makes my teeth look more yellow than usual.

I would recommend this shade to more tan people. It would blend well with warm skin tones because against my pale skin it just stands out too much. *Sad face*

Best of Beauty in 2016!

dsc01024

Yes, the year is finally coming to an end and it is time to pick some stand-outs that made all the make up magic difference. There were definitely some stand outs and classic favorites this year. I can’t wait to see what the make up industry has in store for their consumers aka me and all you beauty addicts. 


Base:

Tarte BB Tinted Treatment in Light. I sort of treat this as a tinted primer and sometimes a bb cream because it has a bit of a tint to it and at the same time really mattifies my complexion. 

Tarte Amazonian Clay Tinted BB Moisturizer in Ivory. I haven’t been into actual foundations this year because I honestly couldn’t bother buffing my face everything I went out. Plus, it was always super hot(as per usual). 

Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer in 10 Light. This one has got to be my lifesaver of the year. I ALWAYS use this thing, even as an over all base when I would be lazy(most occasions). Its perfectly creamy and evens my skin tone. I am so close to opening my backup already.

Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder. This actually ran out on me(as every favorite product does) mid year because I would use this every time I used a powder(which is every time). 

Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder in 52 Vanille. Yes, I put two powders in this list because I waited so long to have this in my hands and it was definitely worth it. It was everything I hoped for and more. (overreacting but yeah)

Shade & Light:

Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. I know I put this in last year(link HERE!), but it still is my favorite till this day(as i’m writing this). I think Too Faced crafted this endless pit of a bronzer in a way that it hardly even dented itself after using it this whole time.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour Blush in Exposed. FAVE FAVE FAVE!!! Did I mention that it stays on forever? Lovely shade + Stays on the whole day = never going to let this go.

KIKO MAKE UP MILANO Shimmer Shadow Stick in 02. This stick of light is all I ever need. Unassuming in a sense that it isn’t lightsaber bright but enough to tie your everyday look together.

Eyes & Brows:

Maybelline Fashion Brow. Instead of rambling about how amazing this product is, please do read the review I made on this(link HERE!). TBH, I never felt this attached to a drugstore brow pencil.

Kat von D Tattoo Liner. This has been listed as the best liquid eyeliner in the market. I can’t contest to that. It’s damn amazing.

dsc01048Lips:

Revlon Colorstay Liner in Rose. This is my go to lip liner for casual Saturday night outs and work meetings. Appropriate for all seasons. Did I mention that it lasts on pretty long?
Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment
.
This is no hoax or some type of hyped up product. This actually works. I try to remember to apply this every night before I sleep because it the next best thing from coconut oil.

MAC Matte Lipstick in Velvet Teddy. I don’t know when this will not be on my list. This has got to be my all time favorite lipstick from MAC or ever. I have yet to try their other shades liek Taupe and Whirl but UGH! this is so good. It is my go-to lipstick when I can’t decide what to wear because peachy nudes never fail.

6 Reasons Your Foundation Isn’t Working For You

DSC03404C copy

1.) You’re using the wrong shade. Finding the right shade is like finding the right guy(char). But seriously, you will most probably not get it right in your first try. You might have to try more than 2 swatches because the last thing you want is an orange face and a white neck or vice versa.

2.) You’re using the wrong sunblock/primer. I have said this before. You ALWAYS have to put something under your foundation or else you will look like an oily mess. I personally use sunblock because I need the SPF but you really need to choose one that reacts well with your skin and meshes well.

3.) You’re not exfoliating enough. Applying a face scrub every now and again wouldn’t hurt softening and cleaning those pores of yours. It allows a smoother application of makeup. I do it twice every week, as per my dermatologist.

4.) You’re using the wrong foundation type. I always hear my friends saying, “Oh I want to get a matte foundation!” But not every foundation type will fit well with you. There are a bunch of types to choose from, which ranges from tinted moisturizer to full coverage.

5.) You’re not using the correct tools to apply it. There are three most known ways to apply foundation, makeup sponge, buffing brush(or any brush you have) and your hands(but I prefer to sanitize first). I usually use a sponge because it defuses the coverage really well compared to other tools. But do what feels right on you!

6.) You’re not using a setting powder. If you live in the Philippines or any tropical country at that, it is vital to always set your foundation with powder. It is the key to a long-lasting finish! A semi sticky face is not something you want to wear showing up to work.
