Sunday is my drugstore day because my family and I stop by a mall near our church after lunch. Here’s three items I picked up, from L-R: Flormar Supermatte Lipstick in 209, Etude House Apricot Stick in 3 (Apple), Wet ‘n Wild Color Icon Trio in Walking on Eggshells.
Hand swatches from the two lip products. Left: Etude House Apricot Stick, Right: Flormar Supermatte Lipstick in 209. The two thin lines were leftover swatches from my drugstore trip.
I wanted the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, but they are too expensive here (Php 575 or about $15). The Etude House Apricot Sticks are just Php 198 each and a good buy if you want to try out a similar higher end/more expensive product. It gives good moisture, but it’s not sustained. The shade I got, 3 or Apple, is a light coral pink. It smells and tastes like apple! I like it a lot and will probably get more shades. 🙂
The Flormar Supermatte lipstick (Php 399) “[has a] velvety structure that gives the lips a mat and full look.” It’s a great creamy formula. 209 is a mauve-y pink. When I swatched it in the store, it was an old rose but on my lips it looks redder. I’ll see if I can take better swatches because the picture I have under looks super different. Maybe it’s my lip pigmentation but I’ll try it out more in the next couple of days.
First impression of the formulation is great. I got to try a Flormar lipstick (from a different line) that came in last month’s BDJ Box.
Flormar Supermatte Lipstick & Etude House Apricot Stick. Pardon my haphazard appearance. I took a nap and thought to post these. 🙂
I’ve been looking high and low for Wet ‘n Wild’s Color Icon Trio in Walking on Eggshells (Php 319), which has been raved about all over the world. I like it a lot, off the bat, but I haven’t tried it on my eyes yet. It seems like a good neutral palette.
That’s it for now, thanks for looking! 🙂
I ❤ Apricot Stick! Mine's #5 🙂 Medyo peach.
Ano yung flavor nun? Haha I’m a fan 😀
Love the light pinky colour (picture on the right). Looks great
Thank you, Chanele. 🙂
for the longest time, walking on eggshells was the only eye palette i had with me! i love that. 🙂 where do you buy flormar stuff?
It seems good naman! I haven’t extensively tried it but yay 😀 I got my Flormar stuff from SM Megamall’s department store!
That trio from Wet ‘n Wild is a good product. Very pigmented. 😀
I’m so glad 😀
When it comes to drugstore eyeshadows, WnW is probably my favorite. I have the same palette -and I bring it everywhere.
This is my first WnW purchase 😀 I haven’t tried their other palettes, though I want to try Comfort Zone next! 🙂
The eyeshadows look awesome, really pigmented!
Yes! They’re so soft and velvety 🙂
I love a great drugstore find! And love the colors of the shadows.. Too bad for the balm stains. I have to and I find the colors a bit inconsistent and they aren’t very moisturizing, I’ve been meaning to review them. Xo
Wet n wild shadows are wonderful. So far everything Ive bought has good pigmentation and staying power. All the shades in Walking on Eggshells are mac dupes 🙂 it’s a really useful neutral palette. I also have comfort zone. I really love the darker shades in that one.
I know, I super want Comfort Zone but I held back because palettes are my weakness! Haha. 🙂 Maybe next time!
I was on the fence about the Wet ‘n Wild palette but eventually gave in when I saw this post, haha! Got it as well, and it’s so nice, I use it as an alternative to my MajoMajo palette now. The tiny brush that comes with it is crap though. Mine is, anyway. Sheds everywhere!
Yay! Glad it’s working out for you. 😀 I hate that stupid brush, too! I’ve been looking for that Majolica Majorca cheek and lip tint you reviewed, but I can’t find it anywheeeere~
Where oh where did you find that WnW palette here in the PH?
Hi Fish 🙂 The WnW palettes are available at SM department stores. You can also try Watsons, or Zalora.ph!
I have the same exact Apricot Stick and the same WnW palette :)) Love your blog because we have the same taste 😀
HAHAHA high five! 😀
