My go-to pink lipstick


Hello, happy wednesday to all! It's wednesday and I'm on research break for my class later so freecut! Yay! No matter how old I may get, I still feel a little bit happy whenever there's a freecut LOL.  Anyway, let me just share something for today about one of my favorite pink lipsticks ever. I'm actually guilty of throwing lipsticks after a year or before it reaches the 2-years mark
 simply because I adhere to the expiration standard that beauty products commonly have. That is why, I don't really buy a certain lipstick repeatedly because I like trying on new shades or brands. However, there are certain exemptions to that if a lipstick is really a certain favourite, then I'll keep on buying it over and over again. And that's actually quite the story on how I was able to buy this particular shade. I was supposed to buy a shade called Damn Glamorous from MAC, but unfortunately, I was told that it was actually a limited edition shade. :(( It's actually my favorite pink-red shade ever, but of course, what can I do naman if it's no longer being produced.Alangan naman magwala ako at mag pa-petition for a lipstick shade. The girl who assisted me recommended  this shade instead, and I fell in love! Well, it was more of a love-hate relationship at the beginning. I have dry lips, and I didn't use any sort of lip balm before applying this lippie before, so naturally, my lips would all be flaky and super dry. But now, I just apply my burts bees lip balm before applying this, and I think my lips have already gotten used to the level of dryness this has - it is part of the retro matte collection, after all.  More than anything, I love how I can eat and drink so much, and this lipstick is still there on my lips; talk about amazing staying power!



Hi double chin meehehehe

This lipstick is really worth a try! And of course, since I'm a sucker for pink/pink-red lipsticks, I really love this.

Much love,
Nikki

What's inside my bag!


Feeling artista lol. Hello! Anyway, I'm the type of person who is very interested in checking out the things that my closest friends use or my favorite personalities.For example --like what wet wipes does this person use, what wallet or lippies does this person have in her bag, so on and so forth! I truly believe that you can say a lot about a person based on the contents of their bag haha. I just wanted to share with you some of the contents of my current bag, my school and errands bag, in this case.

I always have a pair of sunnies in my bag since I walk a lot whenever I go outside or commute. Also, a pair of glasses to protect my eyes whenever I use my laptop or phone. Of course, I bring my School ID almost all of the time, even if I'm not going to school. My favorite wallet is this Purple Pochi P + G design, which I bought at a very affordable price in Japan! I love this because it also serves as my coin purse.
Gummy bears and tictac to eat whenever I feel bored and a little hungry wherever I am haha. As for lip balm, I am still in love with Burts Bees. Right now, I'm using the original beeswax formula. And for lipstick, I always bring one lippie in my bag for retouching. In this case, the one pictured in here is MAC Relentlessly Red.
I know medyo pangit ung shot ko dito, but anyhow, wetwipes is a must!! I will probably freak out when there's no wet wipes available inside my bag. And of course, alcohol to disenfect my hands from time to time.
Being a mall rat, I always bring my cardholders that contain my membership cards from different stores hehe. The other one is a cardholder for my credit cards.


That's pretty much it! haha. Till next time :)
Much love,
Nikki
