A touch of pink in spring
Happy Tuesday! So with me being in such a spring and pink mood (honestly when am I not?) I wanted to share my favorite lipstick at the moment and I thought since I have never reviewed this yet it would give me a chance to give my thoughts on it finally. I featured this last year in my Favorite Lipsticks for Spring you can read here. I’ve also been into the matte trend and since this a pinky nude matte it is perfect for it. If you’ve been curious at what I’ve been wearing in my outfit pictures lately then this is it apart from my last blog post. If you check my everyday bag right now you would see this little tube resting inside until I pull it out to wear for the day. It’s been the one I’ve been grabbing for so it really says it is my current favorite. It’s just the perfect shade for the season. So here at the details and why it is my go to spring lipstick.

What convinced me to get it was at the time so many bloggers I was following raved and reviewed this lipstick. I think I still have all the links saved in my Bloglovin still to go back to. I thought I would never get a chance but when I did I had to see what the fuss is and I see why. I love the packaging on it and I love when they are different colors instead of the plain black. I like quirky and unique so I know which one it is out of my collection when I want to use it. It has a sticker on the bottom and a preview of the color. It has her signature on the lid and twists up nicely.
I got mine from a cousin who came to Manila after she asked what I wanted. She was so nice in buying me this. If you want to purchases it here locally in the Philippines I have seen it around. I know Zalora used to have them but currently I think they are out of stock but I have seen them at Lazada. Also a lot of Instagram stores have it but I’m not sure how reliable they are. I do hope I can find one if I run out though so I don’t have to travel abroad to get one. I definitely would though as it is that good.
The color is so pretty and I can’t get enough of it. I just think it is the perfect color on me and works so nice for everyday. I’s a nudey pink but also can be built up to a dusty rose pink with more pigmentation. Also the opaque color of this is great so it can be quite a light color for your lips but better but with few coats it is this gorgeous pink. It is matte but isn’t too drying. I do put a lip balm on before it and it does the trick nicely. I am actually quite addicted to the scent of this lipstick. I don’t know if it is just me but I love opening it up and smelling like a fruity sweet scent. I think it is watermelon I’m not sure but that’s what I smell. The scent doesn’t linger on your lips but when you open it and apply it on it is. I like that but some of you may be put off with scented lipsticks. I usually have a preview and a swatch on my lips but I have a face of the day wearing this coming up soon so I will leave a link when it is up in the future.
This is my current favorite spring color at the moment. I loved creating a makeup look featuring this lipstick. I think it’s just the prefect time to be experimenting and playing with pink looks and since it is my favorite color it has been so fun. I hope you liked and if you tried this or any other shade in the range let me know. I’m dying to get my hands on a few more shades as I love the formula of this so much. Also let me know what your fave shade is to wear right now and if there are any other colors I should be sporting before spring is truly over.
