The Lip Product Addict Tag

I am, by no means, a lip product addict… but I do like doing fun tags every once in a while. I have an okay relationship with lip products. I mean, they’re alright to hang out with and whip out and stuff, but I have never stared lovingly at a lip product like the way I do with palettes. It’s just not the same. ETA: OK, this video is cut off, so I’m reuploading it. Sorry for this dumb mistake and thanks to Zoë for mentioning something! ETA 2: YAY reuploaded! Ahem. The Lip Product Addict Tag was started by Amelia Liana and Estée on YouTube. Here are their questions, in case you want to give this a go, too: 1. Favourite balm/treatment? 2. Best eye-catching red? 3. Best luxury & best drugstore? 4. Best MAC lipstick? 5. The most disappointing? 6. Liner – yes or no? 7. Best gloss? 8. Something extra! And here is their original video. Let me know if you’ve done this tag (and paste your link in the comments!), or …

The Perfect Palette Tag

Eye shadows—palettes in particular—are my weakness when it comes to makeup. There is just something about a beautiful palette with a beautiful concept behind it that gets my insides all tingly. Anyway, I saw this tag on YouTube (created by iluvfaces1042) and intended to do a video for it for the longest time, but I decided to do a post on it instead! Basically, there’s a round of questions that describes “the perfect palette,” as seen from many different aspects. There were originally just 8 questions, but the 8th one—Most Used, Most Loved, Desert Island—got split into three instead: 1. Best Packaging 2. Best Color Payoff 3. Most Versatile 4. Best for Traveling 5. Biggest Regret 6. Best Color Names 7. Least Used 8. Most Used 9. Most Loved 10. Desert Island Are you ready?

I <3 Drugstore Makeup Tag

I saw this tag over at Cosmetic Caitlin and thought it would be pretty fun! I don’t own a lot of drugstore makeup, because I tend to give them away to people when I don’t like them or they don’t work for me. I think it’s also because I decided to go cruelty-free and didn’t really get a chance to try a lot of drugstore makeup. (Most of the brands here are not CF.) Feel free to answer the questions in the comments or link me to your blog where you do the tag. 🙂 1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand overall? Counting non-CF brands, I’ve got to say Revlon. My favorite cruelty-free drugstore brand is Snoe Beauty, and Wet n Wild. 2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products? — Face: L’Oreal Lucent Magique Liquid Foundation in G4 or N5, Physician’s Formula Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Powder in Matte Translucent — Cheek: Revlon ColorBurst Mineral Blush in Roseberry — Lip: Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum, Maybelline Color Whisper in …

Liebster Award!

Hello everyone! I was nominated by Dandelion Whiskers for the Liebster Award a few days ago, and I received a few more nominations~ (by Totally Tamryn and Rose-Tinted Beauty) in between then and now, because I’m so lazy. For the uninitiated, the Liebster award is given to up-an-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. 🙂 The rules are: Share 11 facts about yourself. Answer the awarder’s 11 questions. Ask 11 questions of your own. Nominate 11 bloggers. ________________ So, fun stuff (?) about me, in eleven parts: My senior thesis was on Veronica Mars from Veronica Mars, Angela Chase from My So-Called Life, and Buffy Summers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I just got into make up (extensively and obsessively) a few months ago. I have not looked back since. I am quite happily in a relationship currently. 2013 marks our second year together! I studied BFA Information Design in Ateneo de Manila University. I taught Introduction to Illustration a few years later. I’ve only had one desk job, for one month. After which, I …
