Maybelline's Vivid Matte Lipstick Collection: Review & Swatches

November 8, 2016

If there is one beauty product that I do not leave the house without, it is a good set of matte lipsticks.  I say set because I usually carry 2-3 shades in my makeup bag just in case I need a different mood-changer.  Weird how that sounds but I bet most of you can totally relate.  Who doesn't turn to lipstick when one needs to feel a little better, right?  Nothing like a pick-me-up that doesn't make you feel bad and sad and groggy when the high dies down.  Liquor does that while lipsticks give you the happies without the crazy hangover-- I'd take the latter any day!

A lot of beauty junkies say that it's not hoarding if it's makeup and that holds true for my lipstick collection.  I do not have a drawer full of these little bad boys but I have a handful of (matte) nudes and just recently, (matte) browns.  I am a nudist on my lips but brights make for a good addition in my lipstick arsenal.

So what's a girl to do when she receives (5) tubes of the all-new popping shades from Color Sensational's Vivid Matte Lipstick Collection by Maybelline New York?  She holds a lipstick party, of course!

Maybelline New York recently launched their newest colors of matte lipsticks and this time, they come in vivid red, pink and plum shades-- much to the delight of every bold-lipstick-loving beauty junkie.

Maybelline's Vivid Matte lipsticks have creamy textures, they glide smoothly on the lips, doesn't tug and doesn't give you that heavy, sticky feeling.  Some matte lipsticks leave your lips feeling dry at the end of the day but the Vivid mattes don't and they even leave a pretty stain once you wipe them off-- giving the impression that you're wearing a lip tint (which I really, really like!)


I am not very picky with my lipstick's packaging but given that each tube costs P299, i say it's a very decent price for a very good and well-loved lipstick brand.

Maybelline's Vivid Matte Lipstick Collection gives you incredible color payoff with just one swipe and has great lasting power.  It survived a hearty Japanese dinner (california maki!!) as well as a grande-sized coffee with minimal retouch.  I noticed though that it bled a little-- but that is something a lip liner can definitely handle.

Like my other Maybelline lipsticks from their Creamy Brown Nudes collection (I have Touch of Spice and Nude Nuance), I am totally smitten!  Not only are they affordable, they are also non-drying and matte(!!)-- qualities of lipsticks that top the list of why they should be in my beauty arsenal.

And now, the fun part..

VIVID 5 is all about the classic red lip that is reminiscent of old hollywood glamour.  
Think Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow and maybe Taylor Swift, too?
I got that red lip classic thing that you like.. la la la.

VIVID 6 reminds me of the first ever MAC lipstick I bought (and ever owned) the day after we arrived in LA a few years ago-- the very bright Girl About Town.  I wore it everyday for the next 2 months and boy did I use it up within just 6 months. HAHA!  This is definitely something I'd wear everyday if I am not feeling too adventurous wearing a red lipstick.

VIVID 7 is an orange toned red that looks especially good on medium skin tones.  Think Jessica Alba, Shay Mitchell and Penélope Cruz.  I'd probably wear this when layered over a different shad because red-orange doesn't really good on me.  And it's yellow-based.  It makes my coffee-stained teeth look more yellow than they really are. (Thank you, Crest Whitening Strips! haha!)

VIVID 8 has got to be my favorite from this entire collection-- a blue-toned pink, Vivid 8 reminds me of MAC's Flat Out Fabulous lipstick.  This is one color I'd definitely reach for more often if I want to give my browns and nudes a break.

VIVID 13 is Barbie Pink-- a very bright pink that works best for girls with fair skin tones.  Think Emma Stone, Alexis Bledel, Reese Witherspoon and Camilla Belle.  Like Vivid 7, I'd wear this when mixed with a different shade.

Overall, I love the entire collection, the colors are fun, very bold, but wearable.  Making a statement with Maybelline's Vivid Matte Lipstick collection is easy peasy lemon squeezy! :D

Okay.  Please forgive the sudden childish outbursts, still not over how playful the entire collection is!  Give the #VividMatte collection a try by visiting your nearest Maybelline counter!  Find swatches, reviews and products photos on Instagram using the hashtag #VividMatte or visit Maybelline Philippines.

That's it for my first ever lipstick review and swatches!

Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion: How to Use and Mini Review

May 29, 2016

Cebu Beauty Blogger, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Bloggers, Beauty, Philippines, Blog, Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion, Reviews, Beauty Reviews, Asian, Filipina Blogger, Beauty Regimen, Nightly beauty ritual, Toni Pino-Oca, Cebu Beauty Blogs

When your skin begs for a little more hydration, and your moisturizers just don't make the cut, you turn to treatment lotions that do exactly just that-- boost your skin's hydration for a more supple and better-looking skin.

A few months ago, I attended a one-on-one Bobbi Brown lesson by Bobbi-trained Tamara Pineda and she demonstrated how to achieve a fresh no make-up look with just the basics. This of course covered the how-to's in applying your concealer and foundation. The very highlight of this workshop that stuck with me was the pre-makeup preparation which included the Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion.

Cebu Beauty Blogger, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Bloggers, Beauty, Philippines, Blog, Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion, Reviews, Beauty Reviews, Asian, Filipina Blogger, Beauty Regimen, Nightly beauty ritual, Toni Pino-Oca, Cebu Beauty Blogs, Tamara Pineda

I went home with a full-size bottle of this treatment lotion for me to incorporate in my everyday makeup routine and nightly regimen. I've been using this lotion for 3 months now and I'm happy to report that I finally found a product that addresses my skin concern regarding hydration.

Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion is a preparative lotion that you apply first before your skincare routine to maximize skin's moisture. It is a water-based lotion perfect for anyone who needs an extra moisture boost and who likes their skin soothed, calm and more even looking.

For someone who grew up with a lot of skin issues ( I started using moisturizer when I was in 3rd grade ), it is imperative for me to find a product that targets all my problem areas without prominent downsides i.e. heavy feeling, stickiness, excess oil that leads to clogged pores. With the Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion, I have noticed significant change in my skin's suppleness in just 3 weeks of use but because I wanted to make sure that it wan't just a temporary result, I used it for the next 3 months hoping to see optimum results. 

So this is me after shower- no moisturizer, no concealer, no sunblock, NO KILAY!
Just the treatment lotion.

Cebu Beauty Blogger, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Bloggers, Beauty, Philippines, Blog, Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion, Reviews, Beauty Reviews, Asian, Filipina Blogger, Beauty Regimen, Nightly beauty ritual, Toni Pino-Oca, Cebu Beauty Blogs, Tamara Pineda

I use the treatment lotion in the morning after applying my toner and before makeup, and at night after my toner and before my serum and moisturizer. While it does not promise acne-free and clearer skin ( you will need a different product to address these concerns ), it however promotes hydration making your skin more supple, more plump and better looking with that youthful glow. And because it is water-based, it is easily absorbed by the skin without giving you a heavy sticky feeling.

Typically, this is how I use my BB Extra Treatment Lotion in the morning and at night:

MORNING: Cleansing • Toner • BB Extra Treatment Lotion • Moisturizer • Makeup

AT NIGHT: Cleanse/Exfoliate • Toner • BB Extra Treatment Lotion • Serum • Moisturizer

I normally use 2 drops of the lotion but on days when I feel like my skin needs more boost and at night when the AC gives your face that drying feeling, I use 3 drops and massage it slowly and evenly on my face using my fingers.Cebu Beauty Blogger, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Bloggers, Beauty, Philippines, Blog, Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion, Reviews, Beauty Reviews, Asian, Filipina Blogger, Beauty Regimen, Nightly beauty ritual, Toni Pino-Oca, Cebu Beauty Blogs, Tamara Pineda
While it looks complicated and takes a whole lot of time, trust me, your skin will actually thank you for it.

Bobbi Brown Extra Treatment Lotion has Glycerin and Hyaluronate that binds moisture to skin for a plumped, more radiant appearance. Finally, Trelahose, a sugar-derived ingredient, promotes long term hydration without the sticky feeling.

This treatment lotion is one of my highly recommended buys if you're looking for a product to help you boost skin hydration. Expect better skin texture, lesser fine lines and a more youthful glow with continued use.

Naturactor Cover Face Concealer: How to Use, Photos and Mini Review

May 23, 2016

Beauty, Blog, Reviews, Beauty Reviews, Makeup Haul, How to Use Naturactor Cover Face Concealer, Silky Lucent Loose Powder, Philippine Beauty Blogger, Cebu Beauty Bloggers, Makeup, Tutorial, Cebu Fashion Blogger, Cebu Bloggers, Asian, Let's Stylize Cosmetics, Toni Pino-Oca

Every girl needs a good concealer in her beauty arsenal. Whether you have dark circles, red blemishes or acne scars, a good concealer can camouflage all these without having to pile on so much product thus allowing you to achieve that pore-less and flawless complexion without leaving a heavy feeling.

For someone who has sensitive skin, I always stick to products that I really swear by and those that I’ve used for quite some time. I am not one to test each and every new discovery in the market but if I see something promising, I, of course, make a conscious effort to go through the product description, list of ingredients and read reviews before I give in and road test it. It’s best to get to know the products you want to try by researching than by viva voce.

I’ve heard a lot of good reviews of Naturactor’s product line; from their concealer, to their pressed powder, down to their silky lucent loose powder. Beauty gurus and enthusiasts alike have, at one point, raved about how good Naturactor products are. The chances of reading bad reviews are slim to none, but the dead giveaway? The tag, Made in Japan. If products are from the Land of the Rising, trust that I would consider trying it 60-70 percent of the time.

Naturactor Cover Face Concealer Foundation can be used as a concealer or a full coverage foundation. It has a smooth, workable texture, is light and is perfect for days when you don't want to wear too much face products. It provides good coverage, is easy to apply and in my case, offers 6-hour wear without caking.

The Cover Face comes in 5 different shades.

130 Very light shade. Gives vibrance to pale skin creating a rosy, youthful look. Suitable for very fair skin tone.
140 Light shade. Slightly deeper in color than 130 suitable for fair skin tone.
141 Medium shade. The translucence of this shade makes it suitable for fair to medium skin tone. Suitable for a natural look.

171 Green shade. Neutralizes redness, superficial blood vessels, acne, blemishes, allergies, irritation and skin redness in general.

In this post, I will show you guys how i use my Naturactor Cover Face Concealer in Shade 140.

I like to start my makeup routine with a treatment lotion before anything else (separate post to follow). It hydrates and prepares my skin for an even and smooth application of my makeup base and concealer. And because UVA and UVB are so unforgiving, one must not forget the sunblock. 

This is me with just sunblock and eyebrow makeup on (to make me look more human. ha!)

Using a flat foundation brush, pick up a small amount of product and tap it gently under your eye.

Make sure to use a light hand in picking up the product because a little goes a long way!

Using a beauty blender or a wedge, smoothen out the application even more by tapping gently onto the areas where you've applied the concealer.

Continue covering your problematic areas (sides of the nose and lips) using the same tapping technique of the foundation brush and beauty blender.

Continue blurring out the blemishes on the other side (under eye, around the nose and lip area.) Using what little product left on the beauty blender, I applied onto the rest of my face.

To keep the product from caking, spray on a little Evian water all over your face and continue blurring out uneven application using your blender.

For the finishing touch, always apply powder. Applying loose powder, often known as baking, is essential in achieving line-free and smooth concealer and helps lock everything in. To do this, use a loose powder and large powder brush to sweep the product all over your face. I am using Naturactor Silky Lucent Loose Powder in 41.

You can and may use a tapered kabuki brush to set your under eye concealer using the same loose powder and sweep off the excess using the large powder brush.

The Naturactor Cover Face Concealer did an exceptional job in covering the redness on my cheeks, nose and lip area as well as perfectly camouflaging my dark under eye. It's light, making you feel like you're not wearing anything at all. Just keep in mind to use a light hand when applying the product :)
