Hello! It’s been a while since I posted something here on my blog! 🙂 After accomplishing loads of college requirements and papers, it feels so good to write again.

Anyway, I purchased two lippies online because I was too lazy to visit my favorite store to look for beauty essentials. XD Not really a fan of buying lippies online because I’m afraid to receive the wrong shade and won’t be able to exchange it.

So I tried to look for some reliable beauty stores online and after reading some reviews, BeautyMNL and Happy Skin was on my top picks and gave them a try.

The shade that I bought from Happy Skin is the Honeymoon Glow see the pictures below:

I really love their packaging because it’s so cute and it’s easy to twist. This lippie is blendable and glides smoothly into my lips and I can really feel its moisturizing effect because unlike other matte lippies, it does not feel dry and rough when applied.

The shade of lippie that I bought from BeautyMNL is the Birthday Suit by Pink Sugar. This one is my favorite because the color suits my skin and is not too pigmented. But what I don’t like about this product is, it’s not easy to blend and does not glide smoothly when applied. I have to use my fingers to blend the product into my lips. Plus the packaging is not that good because I can twist it even the cap is on so it ended up smudging the lipstick a bit. That’s what happened in the photo below.

Here is the swatch I made. They don’t have a huge difference because their shades are quite similar. The Honeymoon Glow is just a little bit pinkish than Birthday Suit’s apricot-like shade.


I applied it and you can barely see the difference.

I both love the product. But of course, there’s always one who will stand out. And it’s the Birthday Suit for me. I just love how the shade suits me and looks so natural. Plus it’s more affordable than the Happy Skin’s Honeymoon Glow.


Thank you for reading! 💕


Much Love,

Inspired by the classic architecture and distinctive Manhattan skyline, Elizabeth Arden 5th Avenue captures the alluring style of the most famous street in the world. The fragrance exudes the energy and excitement of New York while maintaining classic femininity and luxury. –Elizabeth Arden

As I’m getting older, I noticed to myself that I am fond of collecting various perfumes and scents. And of course, perfumed lotions also. Knowing the art of fragrance will lead you to the steps of being attractive. Having a good smell affects the overall impression of people to you plus it gives them an idea of what kind of person you are.

I surprisingly received this from my papa this month because I know he does not have any idea of scents that I like and what I hate.

The box comes with an aromatic hand lotion and perfume. And the packaging screams elegance and finesse.

The scent of this perfume is more of vanilla infused with nutmeg, peach, and fresh flowers.

It feels like you’re strolling around the busy rustic streets of New York City!
