I am not one of those women who hoard lipsticks. I never owned a boxful of lippy unlike some of my friends. In fact, I just have one at a time. I only buy when the one I use runs out. Yeah, there are still women like that! =D
In the years I learned to put on make up, I only had 3 favorite ones. My first was a.gift from my best friend. She didn’t like the shade but thought I would like it and boy I did! I didn’t get used to this dark violet shade from Bench until after 3 more lipsticks from them. After my 4th, I knew I had to move on. I haven’t fallen in love again until I bought a dark brown lipstick from Value Dollar Store. Haha.. I know, of all places! I unfortunately lost my make up kit in a mall in the city. Vivo City to be exact. This isn’t a mall we frequent so I never got the chance to ask their customer service if they had ever found it in the ladies room. Anyway, I had to move forward and just slowly build my make up kit again. I wasn’t willing to buy an expensive lipstick so I ended up buying one from that dollar store. I just needed one to get by anyway. But no, this isn’t just a replacement lipstick. It ended up being my 2nd favorite lipstick.
And then came a time when my little one started owning my make up kit and I end up losing this lipstick. Again I wasn’t willing to buy an expensive one because I got one that I thought was amazing but it ended up disappointing me. I will not name the brand. Ugh, I just despise it. Anyway, I found true love in the corners of a tiangge at Festival Mall Alabang (that’s here in the Philippines). I got it for P100 only! Like wow right??? I bragged to my sister about it and she instantly fell in love with it too!
So everytime we find a tiangge, we always look for that brand and that shade. The first I got was Gemini. The the next I got was Scorpio. I liked both.
1. I just got the perfect shade. I super looove it. I am sure gonna buy another one when I see it. It’s pretty hard to find so I want to make sure I have spare!
2. Color stay. Super color stay. I don’t reapply as much as I do with other brands. So I really love it.
3. It’s the only matte lipstick I used that didn’t make my lips crack. I tend to have dry lips so matte lipstick isn’t for me. Oh well, not this one!
This is me wearing that lipstick.
So….. your turn. What is your favorite lipstick? Care to share?
