Sometimes I feel like my compulsion to shop is just that: a compulsion. I don’t need any other makeup thing, to tell you the truth. After I’ve filled my virtual cart with the things I think I need, I click out of the window and look through my stuff. I have a six-slot lipstick holder on my desk and I’ve taken to switching out lipsticks from my considerably bigger case in my big drawer to these slots so I can concentrate on my chosen ones. For April, these are the lipsticks that I’ve chosen.
I don’t know if I’m going to just use these lipsticks for the whole month, but these are the shades that I’ve gravitated towards, for now. I like that there’s no repetition of line and range, though that wasn’t something conscious. I think I’m just tired of wearing the same ol’ matte MLBB when I’m too tired to think!
Swatched, L-R: NARS Audacious (Dominique), Bite Luminous Creme (Cava), ILIA (Funnel of Love), MAC (Twig), Tom Ford (Flamingo), NARS (Heat Wave)
I think this is a great selection for the hotter days ahead (33°C as of writing, oh man). I think my true lipstick challenge has always been a bright red lip, so I’m looking forward to—as well as dreading—wearing Heat Wave. I don’t know what it is about it that scares me so much! I think layering Cava and Dominique would be an interesting combination, too. I just have to get over the icky feeling of heavy lipstick.
What lipstick are you obsessed with lately? I personally just can’t get enough of Funnel of Love! I love it so much, especially with a soft smoky eye. MMM-MMM! I’m just so excited to wear fun makeup again, haha. I don’t know what I was thinking, but I just wasn’t feeling it.

Wow at the purple lipstick!!! Need to try that some day! x
You totally should check it out. 🙂 I don’t normally go for purples, but this one was nice.
That’s a nice range of shades, Carina! A little bit of everything! I’ve been obsessed with way too many lipsticks recently. It seems like it’s LIPSTICK SEASON out there, because new formulas keep rolling out and I wish I had an extra pair of lips to wear them all!
HAHAHA I know! I can tell from blog posts everywhere! Lip products are having a moment, aren’t they? 🙂
Lovely picks! You’ve definitely got a great range of shades to choose from. I’m so curious about the Ilia lipsticks! I’ve swatched Funnel of Love and I adore it!
Tasha // shiwashiful.
Thank you! I loooove Funnel of Love. It’s probably my favorite ILIA lip product that I currently have.
Funnel of Love is a beautiful shade. 🙂 I’m still kind of obsessed with MLBB lipsticks at the moment, haha.
Well, that’s cool too! I think I want to make more of a statement for some reason. Which MLBB shades are you liking at the moment?
MAC Faux and Cosmo pa rin! Tapos Happy Skin The Morning After! 😀
I think my sister has Cosmo! Haha masilip nga… Did you get the new Happy Skin mousse na The Morning After? Parang ang ganda niya!
I haven’t seen the mousse na The Morning After. Tignan ko nga. Hahaha!
I rearranged my stuff and brought out all my lip products in the open. I think I did that to shame myself into not buying new ones. Hehe. Great picks!
HAHA it didn’t work for me since I ended up buying some, but oh well!
Loving Dominique x
Thank you, Coco. 🙂
I really like the Nars Heatwave. I’ve been gravitating towards a mauvey shades lately, namely Tom ford pussycat.
Ahh, that sounds like an amazing shade! I should’ve gone with that instead of Flamingo, haha.
Am also really bored with my MLBBs na. But I haven’t found a coloured shade that I like naman… Some days I don’t wear lipstick (!)
Every time you feature Dominique I think I might want it! Haha. Nice selection and good luck with Hear Wave. 😉
Same here! This too shall pass. :)) Ganda kaya ng Gunner sayo, my sister even mentioned it to me randomly, haha. But I can see why it’s not an everyday shade!
