Wet n' Wild Megalast Lipstick Swatches & Review!

I'm back with more swatches and another review, you guys! For this review, I'll be talking about five Megalast Lipstick shades from Wet n' Wild which I personally LOVE. I didn't buy five shades for nothing! Some quick details about these lippies: 1) They're matte but not drying 2) The pigmentation is amazing 3) It lives up to its name, it LASTS. It retails for P299 (local department stores) and only P150 in!

SWATCHES: (from left to right) Vamp it Up, Spiked with Rum, Rosebud, In The Flesh, Bare it All

(meh, excuse the messy hair haha)
My favorite from the bunch! I've had this for about two months now and I've been using it a lot. Bare it All is the ever so famous dupe for Mac's Velvet Teddy. For more Mac Lipstick dupes check out this video by KathleenLights. I use this shade whenever I go for a simple everyday look and this perfect brown (subtle pink) nude goes well with almost any skin tone, but it suits those with warm undertones best!

Nyx Liquid Suede Review

After how many months of entertaining myself with make-up tutorials and reviews, I have finally gathered up the courage to make one myself! This is my first ever blog post about make-up so I'm gonna try my best to get this right as much as I can. 

Disclaimer: I'm no make-up artist, I just learned from tutorials and from my aunt who knows a lot about it due to her early modelling and beauty pageant career. Also, as an events host, I do my own make-up to save time and money. In my opinion, investing on make-up is one of the best decisions I have made. I must admit, I'm actually getting addicted!! Lippies make me happy. 

The moment I saw this article from about these new NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks, I knew I had to get my hands on them as soon as possible. I have always adored Nyx's soft mattes and I couldn't wait to try these new babies on. I actually asked the lady who was assisting me in Nyx (SM Megamall) what the difference was between the soft mattes and liquid suedes. According to her, the liquid suedes have a velvety texture and are more waterproof. My top three shades would be Soft Spoken, Sandstorm and Vintage. Unfortunately, Soft Spoken was out of stock so I got Cherry Skies instead. One NYX Liquid Suede lippie costs 390 PHP. 

Sandstorm is such a pretty shade! It's a warm-toned brown that would be perfect if you're going for a natural/nude look. My only concern for this shade is that it looks really light on me and it kind of makes me look washed-out, well that is if I would use it without a lip pencil. No worries! A lip pencil would do the trick, and here I'm using LA Colors lip pencil in the shade Natural.  I wasn't able to take a picture of me without a lip pencil as a base, though.
