Lipstick Jungle

For someone who's never into make-up, I would think that I am currently in lipstick Jungle.  Let me tell you more about my recent addiction.  My article for today will talk about my favorite shades of lipsticks!

Here's my lipstick story.  It all started when I met  herself last Christmas season when we got together for a bazaar and she started tellin' me bout new make-up technology and new products.  I got quite interested and since Jean has always been a lipstick addict, she made me try her MAC Russian Red. I couldn't take it.  I felt like all eyes were always on me.  But then I started looking for a nice hot pink shade and finally found NARS Schiap.  My first official lipstick.

And then followed by a lighter pink shade so I got MAC's Pink Nouveau.  I got obsessed with pink lippies which made me purchase more and more.  I was looking for a neon pink shade with unnoticeable hint of purple and sooo after various pink lipsticks, I found YSL Rose Bonbon Candy Pink.

After series of pinks.  I started to develop a love for even brighter shades. My sister got me MAC's Ruby Woo (matte deep red) and thought that though i love it too... I couldn't wear it everyday as it dries up my lips.  I then stumbled upon Chanel Rouge Coco Gabrielle, and fell in love with it.  After which i started to look for Chanel Coco Rouge Cambon, but i realized that it is not sold in the Philippines.  Though more expensive, I finally got a hold of it in Australia.  But when I got to Manila, I realized that the Chanel Excessive Shade has always been the red that I was looking for and so i traded my Cambon with Jean's Excessive shade.

I am also using MAC's Girl About Town.  Darkened bright fuschia pink in cream.

When I don't want to wear anything, i wear Tarte's berry boost gloss.

I wonder when this will end?  Nevertheless, with all these lipsticks, i pair it with my favorite Jean & Rosz piece

This black charm necklace priced at Php550.00 from Jean & Rosz  is perfect to bring out the color in you!
