Do you have a lipstick that is so frosty you always look like the “Metallic Girl” going on a costume party? Ok, so maybe I’m exaggerating. 🙂 But I have a few lippies that I can’t wear as much as I want to because of its frost finish. Frost finish lipsticks highlight dry and chappy lips.

I have NYX Round Lipstick in Rose Bud. It’s a pretty and complementing warm pink color with gold frost.

Pretty right? I wouldn’t want this to go wasted so I thought of pairing it up with something. I decided to apply a gloss on top of it and a new lipstick was born!

This was the gloss that I used. It’s an old lip gloss from Revlon which I believe is now discontinued. It’s a very sheer peach gloss with tons of pink, silver, and gold microshimmers. Smells like candy too! Yum!

Now, for the final look…

Tada!

Happy Chinese New Year everybody! 🙂

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

Look how similar it is to its older sister, Colorburst Lipstick!

The packaging is cute! It has A semi-translucent cap that is colored depending on the shade. You can also check out the color through the transparent top.

These are sealed by a sticker but I found out that you can open and close these lip butters without tampering the sticker. Hmmmm…

Berry Smoothie and Peach Parfait

What Revlon says:

“Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips 94% of women felt lips were softer, smoother, and instantly hydrated.”

  • Hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula boosts lip moisture by 156%.
  • Pampering gel formula provides super charged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth.
  • Sheer to medium colour with buttery shine.
  • Available in 20 luscious shades.

With these fellas, it’s just like you’re using your lip balm plus color.

Colors lasted for 3-4 hours on me. Pigmentation is good, especially the more opaque ones, and they’re not even lipsticks!

These babies glide smoothly on my lips. Not waxy and feels light.  It’s just like you have lip balm on your lips.

These lip butters have a faint scent that wears off quickly.

Revlon Lip Butter in 050 Berry Smoothie

Berry Smoothie

Gives a natural pink color to my lips. It has barely noticeable pink shimmers. This is the color that looked best on my lips from all the lip butters that I have tried.

I love this because of its gold shimmers. It’s not gritty and the shimmers don’t stray. I fell in love when I swatched this but got a little disappointment when I tried it on my lips. It’s very sheer.

Revlon Lip Butters feel very moisturizing and light but I doubt if this can help improve chappy lips. It gives off a shiny finish so no need to top with a gloss. Glides on like butter upon application.

This is great as it works as a lip balm and as a lipstick. This is best for young ladies and teenagers who are just starting their experimentations with makeup or for people with dry lips and wants color.

I’m eyeing Candy Apple, Sweet Tart, Lollipop, and Pink Truffle. What do you think?

Majolica Majorca is a sister company of the Japanese brand, Shisiedo. Their products are known for its quality and cute packages. Their Glass Trick Mascara / Lash Enamel Frame Plus and compact powders are extra cute!

Trick On palette GR750 (back)

Majolica Majorca’s Trick On Palette is also known as Majolica Majorca Majolook (Trick On). I selected GR750 mainly because they say greens look good with brown eyes. 🙂

The palette costs 795php. Their prices are a little above average. The range is more or less like Revlon.

It comes with a really great sponge tip applicator too!

The palette has 3 colors plus a “Trick On Powder” which you apply on top of your eyeshadow to give a sparkling, 3D effect.

Instructions on how to use the Trick On palette is written on a piece of paper inserted inside the box and at the back of the box so no worries if you don’t know how to use it!

Trick On palette GR750 swatch

Majolica Majorca eyeshadows have good pigmentation and staying power, you can skip the eyeshadow primer. Without an eyeshadow primer, it lasted surprisingly long! The eyeshadows have a creamy, powdery formula and very easy to blend.

Color selection is great and can be used for day or night.

Trick On Powder

The Trick On Powder is a pretty white-gold color with gold micro shimmers which reflects when hit by light.

Swatches with Trick On Powder on top of each color.

In summary,

Pros:

  • Make-up newbie friendly. It has instructions and illustrations on what, where and how to apply each eyeshadow.
  • The colors on the palette goes well with each other and they can be used day or night.
  • Pigmentation and staying power is great, you can skip your eyeshadow base application.
  • The eyeshadows have a smooth and silky texture and very easy to blend.
  • Contains 4 grams of product and a little goes a long way.
  • Comes with a really good sponge tip applicator.

Cons:

  • The price is a bit steep (795php).

This palette is really gorgeous you should give it a try! I really don’t have much to say but this is worth saving up for! 🙂
