What it claims: It’s a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain in an adorable chubby crayon. Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain gives softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of color that lasts hour after hour. The gel formula comes in 12 vibrant shades that match any look or mood.

I am not really a fan of dark colored lipsticks as it makes me look like older. But this baby right here is one total exception!

There was one day when we went to the mall (unplanned), I wasn’t wearing any make up at all. Usually, if I am too lazy to put some make up on, I’ll just wear a red lipstick to accentuate my entire face, so I won’t look pale. But on that day, while roaming around the mall when all of a sudden I saw my face in the mirror and realize how terrible I look with a bare face and lips and all! I told myself, I’m gonna go to a make up stall and use a tester lipstick so I won’t look like I am just cleaning up my closet inside the mall. LOL! 🙂

So of course, I headed to my most favorite brand’s stall, Revlon and grabbed myself a decent lipstick and since I was in a hurry, I just took anything that catches my eyes first. So this baby, raised her hand to me and I immediately grabbed and used it. I added a lot of product on my lips as I wanted my lips to look darker. Then we left and walked. I passed by another mirror and noticed how lovely the color of my lips were! I was amazed and told myself how much gorgeous it looks on me! Haha! So my boyfriend told me toot that the shade fits perfectly on me. Hours passed and the color is still in there! And guess what?! The longer the better! As the time goes by, for some reasons, the color looks better when worn longer, without adding some more product! That’s totally amazing!

So then, I bought and ever since that day, I never regret buying this baby even though I am not a fan of dark shade lipsticks or stains or balms, etc.

Here are the swatches:

What it claims is absolutely true! It is indeed pampering! When worn, it feels like there’s a hint of minty with it. Smells good too! Does not have any foul chemical smell or anything near that. It is also lightweight, one coat is actually very thin and somehow feels natural but I like adding and topping up some more coat as it lasts longer. It’s also a lip balm so when you feel like you’re having a flaky lips, this is the great choice of lip product! It’s hitting 2 birds at a time! It’s not just moisturizing your lips, but it also gives you a beautiful and gorgeous glow! And lastly, it lasts a long time. Long enough for you to re-apply.

Here’s when applied on my lips.

First picture on the left does not have any products at all. Second, only one coat of the lip balm, third is two coats and the last picture is three coats. I usually apply it more than 3 coats as I would like to get somewhere darker than the actual shade.

I also feel safe with this because no matter how thick I apply it on, it will not lead my lips into any harm but instead, it will be moisturized.

Will I buy again? ABSOLUTELY!

Even though I know it will take a very long time before I empty it, I will buy another and more in different shades. The second I am probably getting is the one in shade Honey. I heard a lot of good things about that baby. So I’ll meet her soon! ❤

Make-Up Haul (Philippine Local Cosmetics)

I have always been a fan of make up, ever since I was just little girl. Until I get a job, that’s the time I buy my own make up, because my mom usually does.
At my first make up haul, I find my interest in buying Revlon products. Not just because of its popularity but I heard that some of their products will suit my very sensitive and oily skin. I spent more than P3,000 for 4 items from Revlon. It contained foundation, eyeliner, concealer and lipstick. Will do a separate review on that.

With me being obsessed in acquiring the skills of a make up artist, I have been watching and really watching and watching almost every make up tutorial I can find on YouTube. With that, I fell in love with the local beauty gurus. I found my obsession really worth it after watching tons of tutorials made by my fellow beautiful Filipinos. I have never been a fan of local products until after then. I never realized that they are as good as the most expensive brands you can find at Rustans. Now thanks to my obsession! I was able to buy a lot, as in a lot of make up items worth P3,000! And they are as good and even better than those overpriced products from the same department stores!

So here’s my first make up haul of our very own cosmetic lines. This is something to be proud of! Though, I really have nothing against any expensive brands, I agree, they are all beautiful and amazing! I still use them, of course. But forgive me, I just can’t get enough of admiring these local products! I am just happy that I don’t need to spend a dime to get each and every make up I wanted to have to get that perfect look!

So here I took a picture of my latest haul:
