All Glammed Up with Kat . . .

Styli-Style. Now this brand is a savior. They offer their eye and lip liners in pretty innovative designs. Now this beauty tool is my recent favorite liner pencil – for the eyes and lips. Its flat and easy to use because its tip is pointed just right. Plus, its creamy so the application is a no sweat. You can use it as a liner or eyeshadow. I kinda like it as an eyeshadow since it’s already creamy so I don’t need to use any primers anymore. I often use the Styli-Style Flat Eyeliners, when I’m in a hurry, as a base when making a smokey-eye look since other colors and other eyeshadow brands blends with it perfectly.

Styli-Style Flat Eyeliners Vegas and Vienna and the cute Flat Sharpener

You can buy one flat pencil for Php 575.00 or Php525.00 (sorry i forgot), in all Beauty Bar Stores. Of-course, the brand offers its own unique sharpener for this specific product, which costs Php 275.00 or Php 255.00 (forgot, again.)

MY STYLI-STYLE PENCILS: Vegas, Vienna, St. Carnaby, Madison, Monte Carlo, Marbella

My first Styli-Style haul was mostly lipliners (St.Carnaby, Madison, Monte Carlo and Marbella). I just added 2 eyeliner shades for trial and now I have 4 more shades on my must buy list, but for now, here’s Vienna (Frost Blue) and Vegas (Gold).

Staniac Prom Queen

Now this is my 5 star lip and cheek tint. I’ve been using The Balm’s Prom Queen Staniac for almost two years now and like my other staples, I stock up on these. Staniac has three available colors circulating in the market: Beauty Queen (Sheer Berry Pink), Prom Queen (Sheer Rosy Pink), and Homecoming Queen (Sheer Soft Peach).

Prom Queen Bottles

One bottle of Staniac will cost you Php 650. It’s a bit pricey for a one month use, but still o-kay since it’s a product of great quality. It’s water based formula and gel-like consistency doesn’t dry up easily, thus giving you more time before the stain sets.¬†Also, its portable bottle packaging allows you to bring it anytime anywhere.

I’ve been using the Prom Queen Shade which has a Rosy Pink color. Its color is reddish with a hint of peach, compared to Body Shop’s Lip and Cheek Stain Rose Pink which is a deep sheer pink finish.

It is a 4 hour long wearing lip color that leaves a semi-matte, creme finish in one stroke. This is the very definition of ¬†this specific lipstick brand. What more can I say…IT’S TRUE! This is actually my second favorite everyday lipstick brand! It definitely doesn’t make my lips dry. Every application shows full-velvety color. It doesn’t cake, feather or bleed. (www.wnwbeauty.com)

Before, the Wet n Wild brand was only sold in the US, but recently the brand itself has landed to the Philippines. Thank goodness for that, because it’s the only brand that offers “My” everyday lipstick shade. I tend to mix different lipstick shades/brand to get my favorite light-peachy-pink-nude shade, but now I don’t have to because of the pretty shades that are available for this specific lipstick product.

The Mega Last Lip Color sells for Php 299 on all Department Stores. Affordable and quality-wise! Every stroke gives out a full-color finish and it lasts for hours. There are 20 shades available for this product and as of now I am addicted to the shades 901B РThink Pink and  903C РJust Peachy.

 

903C – Just Peachy

Just Peachy

A nude-peachy pink shade. What can I say, ¬†I’m a nude color addict. This one shows a little pop of the peach color¬†without¬†betraying its original nude shade. This one’s what i use often nowadays.

Go to your nearest mall and try out a few shades.

This brand started my lipstick-craze phase. Why? Because you can get as many from the 144 available shades for a dime each tube! Okay, I’m exaggerating. One tube can cost you USD 4.oo or ¬†Php 180.oo (Php44=$1). Still cheap! (And I got mine for Php 160 from a multiply seller! haha!) And with the wide array of choices for Full-color and Frost shades, expect that you will have a panic-buying experience!

Nyx Round Lipsticks are highly pigmented.

Expect a full-color effect on all shades.

Creamy-feel on every application.

Very affordable. (Mass Brand – U.S.)

Satisfactory Scent (but fades away after application.)

It’s the type of brand in which you can experiment with different colors. Be Playful with the cutesy-cutesy colors, Natural with the nude and neutral shades, Flirty with the striking vivid colors, Seductive with bloody reds or Glam with the Frosty-Diva-Like shades! So either you’re a sugar, spice or everything that’s nice, NYX Round Lipsticks can offer you the shades that can brighten up every ladies’ asset; Smile!

 

First NYX Round Lipstick Review:

FRAPPUCINO AND FIG

 

(Left-Right) Frappucino, Fig

 

Natural Light: Frap and Fig

With Flash: Frap and Fig

These are the very first shades that I have purchased. I actually got these from a multiply store. This specific brand is mainly circulated in the U.S. but now there are many online sellers that offer Worldwide shipping. You can even find a couple of sellers in multiply or facebook that sell this brand.

So I got the FRAPPUCINO and FIG. The former’s more of a nude-pink color while the latter shows a deep pink color.

 

FRAPUCCINO

 

Frap

I actually first encountered this shade when my sister had her make-up done for her prom by a professional artist. She wanted a soft pink-natural shade so the artist used the NYX RL FRAPPUCINO shade. I fell in love with this one that’s why I got one for my own use.

When you look at the product at first sight, you might see it as a browny shade, but no.¬†It is actually a nude shade meets red brick with a hint of pink. It’s a good lipstick shade if you’re aiming for a natural look.

 

FIG

 

Fig

This shade reminds me of ¬†Pink-Plastic-Barbie-Bubblegum. It has a deep-pink shade that looks soft at the same time. This one’s sooo girly! CUTE! This shade is a 4/5 star if you’re aiming for a Barbie Pink look.

Revlon Matte Lipsticks. This is the very first matte lipstick brand that I used, and I LIKE IT! ūüôā For a mass-brand lipstick, this one isn’t that ¬†bad. Every application promises a full-matte-color finish. And this one doesn’t make my lips dry at all. I’m not sure in other girls’ cases but this definitely works for me. It’s the type of matte lipstick that can be used everyday. This one is actually my 3rd favorite matte lipstick brand.

Revlon Matte Lipsticks only cost Php 475 per tube on all Department Stores. Not bad, considering the good quality and finish of the product. I actually have finished 1 tube already and it lasted for about 6 months.

Natural Light: (001) Nude Attitude, (002) Pink Pout, (003) Mauve It Over, (004) Pink About It

With flash: (001) Nude Attitude, (002) Pink Pout, (003) Mauve It Over, (004) Pink About It

I’ve got the first four shades of the Matte Lipstick Collection in my dresser: 001 – Nude Attitude, 002 – Pink Pout, 003 – Mauve it Over, 004 – Pink About It

Swatch (001-004)

With Flash: 001 - 004

**SORRY FOR THE LOW QUALITY PHOTOS, MY HANDS ARE REALLY SHAKEY**

001 – NudeAttitude

(Basic Nude Color)

This shade is perfect Nude Color for a Smokey Look effect. I sometimes use this as a “lipliner” before I put on a light colored lipstick since it practically covers up the dark color around my lips. Plus, it somehow acts as a lip concealer.

Most of the time I mix it with other colors since it gives out a good lightening effect. It makes darker colors ( red, pink, orange) look lighter but still keeping the original deep shade. I often mix it with lipstick shades in the “Orange shade family” since it looks natural on me because of my fair skin tone.

002 – Pink Pout

(A little dark-Light Pink Color)

002 - Pink Pout

I’ve never been a pink lipstick fan (because it doesn’t seem to¬†coordinate¬†with my everyday look), but that doesn’t keep me from trying out playful lipstick colors. ¬†Pink pout is a slightly deeper shade of the light pink color. It’s actually pretty cute.

003 – Mauve it Over

(Soft brick color, perfect for natural look)

003 - Mauve It Over

Now this shade is a savior when I ¬†have to apply make-up in a hurry since this color compliments most looks. It is a type of mauve color that isn’t too strong.¬†It’s actually a lighter version of a brick red shade and it makes your lips look¬†naturally¬†soft and healthy. Even my sister keeps on borrowing this one from my collection.

004 – Pink About It

(A deep Solid Pink Color)

004 - All About Pink

Now this deep pink shade can transform a fair skin-toned gal to a living Barbie. It’s just so bloody pinky and cute! Although I wouldn’t advise morenas to wear this color. This playful color will surely brighten up one’s look. Put on some Lipglass and viola! You’re a star! ūüėČ

NYX Lip Lacquer Pot is a portable lipgloss in a cute glass-like container.¬†This one sells for USD 5.50 or Php 242.00 ($44 – Php1). Sadly I got it for Php 300. Still not bad, since it’s not really available in the Philippines.

GEORGIA PEACH

 

Lip Lacquer Pot

I got the Georgia Peach Color for my first ever NYX LIP LACQUER POT. It’s actually a pretty-okay gloss if you want a full color nude lip gloss for a Smokey-eye look. This one’s not really that bad considering the cheap cost and it’s full-color effect.

NYX Lip Lacquer Pot Georgia Peach

Nude Full-color Gloss

The thing is, you have to use a lip brush. Using your fingers would be messy. I would rate this one 2.75/5. The product is okay and usable but not highly-recommended.
