All Glammed Up with Kat . . .

Archive for July 2011

I made swatches 2 months ago and forgot to load these up until tonight since I still couldn’t sleep. So here goes a swatch of four lipsticks for comparison.

SWATCHES 🙂

Pink Nouveau, Barbie Pink as always.

Milan Mode looks light here probably due to the flash. But its actually a deeper pink color.

See how dry Ruby Woo is. The application is really hard though…

Joyeous, gorgeous as always.

I’ll swatch and make reviews of the other shades next time. I never thought swatch-ing could be such a lucrative task! :p

Cheers for Lip Collections! :0

MAC’s Ruby Woo Matte lipstick is a bluish red matte. It’s definitely a must buy for those who wish to own a striking-red-devilish lips!  As usual it has the signature MAC scent.

MAC RUBY WOO MATTE LIPSTICK

Everyone knows that one MAC bullet lipstick costs $14.50 (Php 638.00) in the US. Here in the Philippines you can get a regular shade in all MAC stores for Php 950. But what most might not know is that it can actually be purchased from Duty Free for only Php700-ish. (So girls! What are you waiting for? Join me as I splurge on these babies :p)

Again as usual, everyone, including me loves the creamy and long wearing formula of all MAC Lipsticks. Easy to put on. Like most say, it’s definitely worth the price. Just don’t pick out a color that would look terrible on you! :p On the other hand, this specific matte shade is just a little bit more dry compared to the regular kinds.

Ok so anyway, not  much can be said to describe the wonderful unique color of a MAC bullet lipstick so here goes the swatch 🙂

MAC Ruby Woo Matte

I really like how I was able to shape-up my lips with this vividly-opaque-red matte! Two words: FULL LIPS! :p

For me, the application for this specific shade  requires precision and patience! haha! It’s matte formula tends to be dry when applied on bare lips. But you’d be really amazed on how long it stays on your lips even after a long day of eating! (Yes! tried and tested – even with ramen! hehe)

As you can see, it gives out a powerful red color although it tends to look a bit dry. Which is why I tried it on with a plain lipgloss. I think I used the Pout Plump Gloss on this on-lip swatch. Look how scary-red my lips were! It actually reminded me of the evil antagonist from the movie 101 Dalmatians! Cruela DeVil! :))

SCARY RED! Imagine a pair of vampire teeth behind those alluring redness! Yikes!

Go to your nearest MAC store and try a few shades! 😉

MAC’s Pink Nouveau Satin lipstick is a bright pink or rather a BARBIE PINK shade. Wear this shade whenever you feel like being playful. Its gorgeous pink opaque color will surely bring out the Barbie in you!As usual it has the signature MAC scent.

MAC’s Milan Mode Lustre lipstick is a sheer deep pink with multidimensional pearl (Mac Website), that is actually a pretty color if you’re aiming for a glam girly look. I think this shade favors those fair skin ladies like me :p As usual it has the signature MAC scent.

MAC Milan Mode Lustre Lipstick

Its actually a deeper pink version of Chanel’s Joyeous Rouge Allure Lipstick… I think..

Go to your nearest MAC store and try a few shades! 😉

This pretty pink lipstick shade is every sweet girls must have. Ehem yes, that’s why I have’m :p

CHANEL Rouge Allure Limited Edition

This limited edition shade, Joyeous, is actually a sheer light barbie pink in color. It’s elegant and sophisticated pink shade is so light that only fair skinned girls can actually pull it off. 😉

Its got this pretty scent along  with it ever alluring packaging. I guess I just liked it because of its sleek click open case design..in GOLD! I love gold you see… Well, not my favorite product but its pretty decent..or rather Fabulous?  As you can see, the logo CHANEL is etched on the product itself.

Joyeous Swatch (pretty right?)

One Rouge Allure costs $32.00 (Php 1400.00) but of course here in the PH it costs even more! Anyway, I got mine at Duty Free so I think I only shelled out Php1200. Delicieuse, Arden and Mythic is on my next haul-list 🙂 (yeah yeah boring shades, so what?! I love’m)

On lip swatch Joyeous

I actually wore this on my graduation day! See  the photo below 🙂

A pretty lipstick shade for a pretty smart girl like me 😉

I’ve had my breakout experiences with some of MAC face products before. Thankfully, this Blot Pressed Powder didn’t share the same harsh effect on my skin. It’s actually a good powder for everyday use. It doesn’t provide any coverage (as if i need one anyway :p) since its just a pressed powder for blotting, translucent in a way. With an oily chin like mine, this powder is a good savior =D

MAC BLOT POWDER PRESSED

I got mine in Light shade. Scent-free. This sleek powder comes with a powder puff in MAC’s signature sleek compact style. (though I prefer using a kabuki brush) The powder is light-weight on my skin and smooths out on my face especially when it sets.

MAC BLOT PRESSED in LIGHT with Puff

Just a pop of cheektint and a buffed Blot Powder on your face are the only things that you need for a fresh look. Its actually my Sunday morning look. (Yes, there’s an afternoon and evening look as well hihi)

ALWAYS SIGNIFICANTLY CHEAPER AT DF! =)

So one compact cost Php 1300.00 in all MAC stores her in the Philippines. I got mine at Duty Free for only $23 (Php 1000). For a MAC-haul Duty Free is always my first stop 🙂

 

Id give this a rating of 3.5/5.

Boi~ing! Boi~ing! Boi~ing! Imagine the sound of a twisted metal wire with that boing sound! Now that describes this industrial strength concealer. For the face, upper body, lower body, arms, legs, whatever! Get the picture?

BOI~ING Concealer

One pot is priced at $18.00 A modest price for a modest concealer. So modest that you wouldn’t notice that its there somewhere on your pretty face, doing its wonders covering your most undesirable flaw. It’s got this creamy texture that covers any dark area on your face without creasing hence a smooth and invisible coverage. Huuray!

It comes in a really cute hot-pink and black packaging (the one on the photo appears lighter because of the flash and lighting).  It’s got a clear lid with the BOI~ING logo branded on it.

BOI~ING in Deep Pretty Packaging

BOI~ING comes in three shades. Light, Medium and Deep. Unfortunately the Deep shade got into my items instead of the Medium that was ordered. So I had to give it away. Ordered another one which is now in transit 🙂

 

I’d give this one a 3/5.

Boi~ing! Boi~ing! Boi~ing!

Smashbox’ HD concealer is still my favorite though 🙂
