You have sit in my wishlist ever since I discovered your existence a few years ago. Yes, you. You in that gorgeous shade. I waited for so long before I finally got the opportunity to see you in person and bring you back home with me.
Now that you’re here, let’s fill out this memories book, shall we?”
Call me mad as a hatter but the story is true. I waited, and waited. I hold off getting True Coral for the longest time even though I had a lot of chances. I know it’s going to be mine, but I want to pick this beauty up myself. It needed to be that way.
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.
On my trip to Hong Kong last November, one of the things in my beauty wish list was to get the fairly-new Tom Ford matte lipstick offerings in Black Dahlia and others. But to my disappointment, the Beauty Advisor told me that the counter only carry a couple of shades for now and was unsure if Hong Kong will carry the whole line up.
Feeling a little bummed, I gave the only two shades available a swatch and decided that I might be able to work this particular shade that I ended up getting.
It all started when @caroleinne tagged me to do a #redlipstickweek on Instagram. Basically, just choose and post 7 best red lipsticks that we have. Because it was done in December 2014, I thought it’s quite appropriate to have a holiday theme in mind.
This post will be a recap of all the 7 lipsticks that I chose. I am aware it’s probably counter-productive; it’s been more than 2 months ago since I did the tag. But, hopefully this post will help people who are looking for some good reds for their lips.
