Wet 'n' Wild Silk Finish Lipstick Swatches

I spring-cleaned my makeup collection the other day, throwing out old ones and setting aside the ones i barely use as well as the ones I haven't gotten around to using yet - so they'll be ready when someone interested to give them a new home comes by. In order to use everything I have in my collection, I actually do a monthly "makeup rotation". FYI, my makeup collection isn't that big - I'm more of a "skincare" girl and I'm not really into buying makeup these days but I'm happy with what I have FOR NOW ;) 

When I was still testing out shades to know my "best" shades and "safe" shades, Wet N' Wild and NYX were my best pals - and Makeupalley.com. lol :D WnW Silk Finish, in particular, was my favorite line because it is not drying on lips and coverage is usually good. well don't expect them to be long lasting because 1) they are creamy and 2) they are cheap - around $2.50 each :D like I said, they are good for testing out a shade and you can just toss them in the trash if they didn't work, sans guilty conscience ^^ 

My good research skills served me well because these three shades actually worked on me ;)

Wet n' Wild Silk Finish in 521A, 520E and 514A

Just for reference, I am NC25 {MAC}, 520E Hot Paris Pink {pink} and 514A Cherry Frost {red} looked good on me while 521A Fuchsia w/ Blue Pearl {fuchsia}, hmm, not really, but on good days, yes. 520E Hot Paris Pink and similar shades are my everyday go-to pink lipstick shade, they compliment my skintone well :)

521A has blue shimmers while 514A has gold shimmers however no need to be scared wearing these because those shimmers are so tiny - barely noticeable, and look really really good on photos. three swipes to get the kind of intensity as above swatches which only goes to show that these lipsticks are buildable.

These babies are so cheap! 119Php. SM-Watson's carries WnW brand but popular shades are usually OOS. I bought 521A and 520E online for about the same price.

Foodspotting: Isang's Pansit Malabon

Here's a small bilao of Isang's Pansit Malabon

Isang's pansit malabon (200Php)

Tastewise, it's very good but could have been awesome if thin slices of pork were used instead of pig ears :( 

and no, it's not gross but i do not eat pig ears so..

Bulacan's pansit malabon still holds the crown in my foodie book ;)

I'm new here and there's not much info about Isang's but I do know that they operate a small stall in front of WalterMart *the one nearest to Enchanted Kingdom* so that makes it Sta. Rosa - Balibago Rd, Sta. Rosa, Laguna right? lol. roads and directions make me dizzy, you know. :D It's right beside Atoy's Porkchop *our favorite porkchop place*

NARS Hot Pink Lipsticks [Swatches]

Please bear with me and my quickie posts. I've been running around like crazy these days because I was stupid enough to accept another part-time work when I already have enough on my plate. Oh well, I shouldn't complain. More work means more $$$ yes? ^^

Anyway, may I entertain you with some NARS hot pink lippie swatches this morning? I'm torn between Schiap and Carthage. What do you think? Funny Face is deeper, leaning towards red, Schiap is a cult favorite and a true hot pink (both are semi-mattes) while Carthage, a pure matte, is quite coral-ly to me which I like. There beside Schiap is a dab of NYX Addis Ababa just for comparison. Is it a dupe? Maybe. But I find NYX soft mattes too drying on lips so I'm not picking NYX up even if the shade is gorgeous.

NYX Addis Ababa, NARS Funny Face, NARS Schiap, NARS Carthage

These are all available in the Philippines. I swatched this at Rustan's Alabang Town Center. NYX Addis Ababa is available at Pop Culture [2nd floor, beside food court] 300Php a piece. NARS pure mattes will set you back 1,450Php while semi-mattes for 1,250Php

Havaianas Moving Out Sale at Paseo de Sta. Rosa

Just a quick share because I have a bazillion things to do and I really really need to shower before anything else ~ omg it's awfully hot today :(

Check out Havaianas Outlet Store in Paseo de Sta. Rosa (Laguna) the soonest (sale is from Feb 1 to 28, 2013) because everything is 50% off . This is a moving out sale so a part of me is quite sad to see them go :( They are just a stone's throw away from my place and I will surely miss seeing them when passing by

but do check them out. and buy. I spotted a couple of glow-in-the-dark slippers for kids :)
