Laura Mercier Sheer Lip Color in Baby Lips + Lancome and a bag

Pink is my favorite color in the whole wide world. Some may think it's too girly or too feminine but I don't care because I love pink! Lately I have been really digging pink lipsticks. I just can't wear those that are outright and screaming pink like MAC Pink Noveau and NARS Schiap because they make me look gay. No offense to gays because God knows I love gays and I love my gay friends but that's just how I look like with those two lipsticks. I prefer more subtle looking pinks and this is the latest pink lipstick I have purchased (and I actually just purchased it yesterday and yes, I am blogging about it) - Laura Mercier Sheer Lip Colour in Baby Lips. You know how I am when I get really excited over something that I super like.


See? So pretty. :P

I was really surprised as to how low the rating for this lipstick at MakeUpAlley is. Most complained about this lipstick being too dry but most of those reviews were written like 3-4 years ago so LM must've changed the formulation of this lipstick because it is not in any way drying. I find it to be in a way moisturizing since I can skip wearing a lip balm underneath this lipstick and not worry about my lips flaking and chapping. In fact, my lips feel smooth and soft even with the color gone. I am honestly not a fan of the packaging. I hate the brown tube but I guess I can't really complain because this lipstick, after all is not that expensive, priced at Php895. Almost 50 bucks lower than MAC. This applies really smoothly and leaves a hint of gloss behind. It is sheer so a few swipes are needed for the color to really show up on the lips. Being the sheer lipstick that it is, it does not have a great staying power and the color is gone in just about an hour or an hour and a half tops. But I really don't mind reapplying because I like the color. I have worn it last night and today and I still have pretty much the same observation about its lasting power. This is a really nice lipstick especially for those who want something that isn't screaming I'm-wearing-lipstick and it's definitely MLBB and will make your lips look more youthful. However, if you are the type who prefers really opaque and pigmented lipsticks, this isn't the one for you.

Okay, I really promise, these two are the last of my 2010 purchases (except for the eBay goodies I expect to receive this week) - Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Liquid Foundation and a big hobo bag from Mondani New York. I was honestly going to skip this foundation but I had a dream last night that one of the Richards from The Amazing Race Asia 4 bought this foundation for me. I was like, "Why him? And why this foundation?" Haha! And when I dream about something (makeup, of course), it usually means I have to get it; otherwise, it will haunt me for days and even weeks, perhaps. I bought the bag yesterday but I just forgot to post it together with a perfume and a lip balm.


Have you tried this lipstick? :P

Happy Tuesday, super awesome peeps! :)

  4. Mina, haha! That happened to me several times before, with MAC brushes and NARS blushes. I really hope Lancome works for me because that is by far the most expensive liquid foundation I have ever purchased. :P Go try LM lipsticks, they are nice and cheaper than MAC. :P
