Lipstick Obsession: My Recent Lippie Purchase


I believe that it is a common knowledge to us girls that Lipstick or Lip products are one of our most coveted items. We are one of those who always goes insane whenever we see our favorite brand up with a new line. We always have what’s apt for a certain season or occasion. Even if we own many, one could still stock up to their heart’s content. I believe we are all guilty on this department. At once I thought that ownership of more than two is ridiculous but as I see my sister owning a bunch I know somewhere behind there’s a meaning to it. How much do you treat yourself? Is how much you spend for something. And for someone who has deep appreciation of beauty of an individual It is understandable why a certain action occurs. Do I make sense? Anyways, and so to cut my long story short, my sister got me hooked. I got to embrace ownership of not only a pair but at least a dozen ( as of my counting) I even have that thing, when you walk up to an isle of lipsticks then you stopped to this particular brand because it talks to you? One time I got to ignore it only to return the following day because it haunts me. We even got to use lipstick haunting as our bonding moment. For us, it is our holy grail.

I should say that right now, we are back on track with our lippie collection and just recently we purchased lip products ( as shown above ) I already did a review on the Lip and Cheek Tint from Soopeskin. This is our current go to lipstick since it’s already summer and the weather here is really hot. We opt to use the lightweight ones. Second is their Lip and Cheek Creme which is super loved. It has really pigmented color and buildable if you want that intense look. I also got to use it whenever I go out because of it’s lightweight formula even if it’s a creme. We all got this on a buy one take one promo which is a great deal because we also got to have their other two variations. Same on their lip and cheek tint.
Last on the white packaging is the Supreme Collection of Ever Bilena Advance. The ones we had were Hot Pink, a matte vibrant pink which is really a dupe for NYX Addis Ababa and Marilyn which is a creme lipstick but I find it semi-matte. I’ve been also wanting to buy their Red Twilight and Cosmo Pink but we’re not available maybe because we only bought this from a local drugstore thus the limited supply. I might be doing some swatches as soon as I got hold of the two. These Lipsticks are apt for those special occasions when you want a stunning color. Just only of the few from their collections and I’m telling you there would be more to come.
I’m also eager to know about my readers current favorites or their recent lip product purchase. Please do leave your comments down below. 🙂

Chubby Chic’s New Find: Nail Polish Solvent by Bobbie

  It’s a common bonding to us sisters to visit a local Drugstore near our place. We happened to swing by the other day and accidentally I found this product that I’ve been looking for quite sometime now. It’s a nail polish solvent. For those of you who doesn’t know what this is, it is used to dilute thickened nail polishes. The favorite ones that you store in that drawer for so long but is already on the stage of drying up. This is your life saver.DSC00117

This comes in a 30 ml bottle for a price of Php 29.00. It may come a long way though. Instructions says ” pour an adequate amount of solvent into the nail polish solution ( about 6 drops per 15 ml  ) ” . I stated what is written in the bottle for you’ll have a difficulty reading. My only rant. I hope they had a lighter background label  or a lot bigger letter. PicMonkey CollageI ended up dropping a lot  than stated. My nailpolish became a little runny. Anyways, it’s still usable. 🙂 I’m glad our local brand Bobbie came up with this product. Other brand that I know are of  Sally Hansen. Though it’s distributed here I’m not quite sure if they have it in the market yet. Or if it is, might be a little pricey. Now, I wouldn’t be throwing away dried up nail polishes. So happy that they are now restored to its original shape.
