Tag: lipgloss


Lipgloss is an iffy thing for some people.  They either hate it or love it.  In my case it seriously depends on how it ticks the boxes for me, one…the shade makes my lips look prettier, two…lasts several hours, three…I’m fine if it’s sticky as long as I can managing mouthing “hello” and “help me” in one second.  I’m not a lipgloss fanatic but I’ve come across two in my lifetime that I’ve used up and I love it on non-occasion days.  Early on it was a dual-ended Urban Decay one from the late 90s that I didn’t open and and only began using in early 2000.  The other is this annoyingly limited edition Bobbi Brown lipgloss in#9 Pink Sugar (from a collection) that I received in a press kit nearly three years ago.  It’s a light baby nude pink with golden micro shimmer.


I was overjoyed to find my Bobbi Brown Pink Sugar gloss again in one of my pouches while clearing out.  It was still good to use, I know that sounds gross, but I smelt and checked it, it’s still good to use on myself.  I have it on hand but am quickly running low on it.  It’s just so wearable on its own and over natural lipstick shades and I’m so sad it isn’t part of their permanent collection.  Read on to see why I like it and how it wears.



Missha Luminous Color Lipgloss (RD02) – My Favorite, Lipgloss Love at 50% Off

I’ve only ever liked and purchased 3 brands of lipgloss in the past 4 years of my rediscovering makeup as a blogger…a total of about 2 or 3 tubes, minimal yes, I know.  That’s because not a lot of high street lipglosses have impressed me since Elianto pulled out of the market.  When I say lipgloss I mean these checkboxes: a wash of translucent noticeable color, high shine/gloss that isn’t sticky & fades away well, sophisticated shimmer if I choose a shimmer, and… important one… desirable scent and taste.  Meet locally available Korean brand Missha and its Luminous Color Lipgloss…check, check, check, double check.  Shining, shimmering, splendid.  Boom.

A major win factor is how pretty the tube is, I love the size and the demi-curve the tube has.  It gives a hint of sophistation that lifts the product.  Last year I got a tiny keychain version of this lipgloss, as in micro mini, in a lighter more nude beige pink shade.  That one mom and I tried and liked to bits and were frustrated that we didn’t know where to get a full size of it at the time.  I was psyched to find the Missha Boutique at SM Pasig Hypermart (near Tiendesitas) yesterday when I met up with my best friend and this cost me Php500, FYI they’re currently 50% off.  The last time I bought an honest to goodness FULL SIZE lipgloss was 3 years ago.  I’m not counting the intense, opaque color lip creams like the NYX Soft Matte lip cream that are like liquid lipsticks, those are different.  Here we’re talking real lipgloss.  Read more to see application and more details.
