LoTW: Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope – Star System

Lo and behold.

I fall into the nude lip, deeply.

Who knew, the girl who wears the brights and bold on a daily basis could fall for something that’s “flat”? I think it’s ought to change. It’s surprisingly inevitable.

Because deep inside, I was longing for the other spectrum.

On The Go – Touch Ups and Essentials

Carrying a small bag is a challenge. I used to carry a LOT of stuff in my bag. The bags alone can weigh quite substantially. Adding a wallet, keys, charger, myriad of lipsticks.. I got myself a potato sack.

Earlier this year, I change things up by getting a small bag, Céline Trio. For the better, because I didn’t regret it at all and actually should’ve done it sooner. Alas, I was picky about which bag to choose. A smaller bag means downsizing and prioritizing, something that I was very excited about.

This post will cover beauty products I carry on a daily basis and when I go to a special occasion.

LoTW: Kate Spade Supercalifragilipstick! in Fanciful Merlot

Who doesn’t know Kate Spade, the brand where all things are pretty, preppy, vibrant and occasionally cheeky with its wordings. From just selling handbags, it has become a full-blown lifestyle brand with its offerings in fashion, stationery, home decor and now branching out to beauty.

It was just a harmless browsing session to Kate Spade’s website after I got an email about one of its quite-regular sales. The website is just well designed, very attractive and easy to navigate around. So, it wasn’t that long for me to browse everything. Until, I glanced over at this lipstick, got inquisitive and then proceeded to do a little bit of investigation on Google *where else*

In short, I snatched one up.

LoTW: Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope – Private Party

Be prepared, this is one lengthy post.

From a wishlist to reality, that’s how I (try to) roll. It wasn’t an easy decision, you know. I don’t just buy a USD 50 lipstick in a snap like I have a money tree to pick onto. I need to have that sizzling chemistry going on before taking the plunge. After going back and forth, I (finally) decided on a shade.

Without further adieu, Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope in Private Party.

Wishlist: Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope Lipsticks

I think I knew that I’m going to have a serious addiction with red lipsticks the moment I bought my first. There are just tons of reasons why I love these red pouts. That being said though, I do not just buy all the reds that I see. I handpicked them carefully. It’s a curated collection. Well, it applies to all of my lipsticks really, but I’m more selective when it comes to reds. Extra selective.

Comes in Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope Lipsticks, my latest lemming.
