Retro Days with MAC Wash & Dry Collection & Huggable Lips Collection

Hi Loves!

I may profess to be beauty junkie, but my level is no where near MAC’s. What do I mean? I mean they launch some 3-4 collections a month, (yes that’s about 1 a week, or sometimes simultaneously they launch 4 collections in a month). So by the time you’re reading this, the collections here are most probably sold out, since my blog posts are mostly belated reviews, heh. Nonetheless, some of the key basics like the foundations would still be there, and if you’re in love in sometime LE featured here, you can try it to find it on Amazon or Carousell! If all else fails… Visit the shop to ask for similar colours, or buy something new from their current collections. 😉

Anyhoo, read on to check out what went down in store on the day Smita and I went to check out Beno (MAC’s makeup artist) working magic on the model with Wash & Dry collection and of course also checking out the then new Huggable Lips collection. 😀

MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 001Beno highly recommends this as a skin prep all over the face before foundation. He says this is particularly good for models when they come in with dull skin, it helps to perk, brighten and hydrate their skin.

MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 002Beno also swears by Lightful C softening lotion(toner), a rather new product launched this year, Beno says that this product with Vit C helps to brighten the skin.

Now on to the Huggable Lips collection! These lipsticks are amazing. They give your lips a very bouncy feel and wet look. I have no idea how that is huggable. And I super love the sleek lip bullet, a change compared to the usual MAC lip bullets. Much prefer this actually!MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 014 MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 015MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 016 MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 017With the super cute bear mascot!

Makeupstore Artist Plexi Gloss LipglossSo we walked around Sephora and chanced upon the launch of Makeupstore’s Artist Plexi Gloss/lipgloss and I won the sample set and a pouch and a lip over. #Blessed. It’s true I am very blessed at winning lucky dips. 

Makeupstore Artist Plexi Lip Gloss Review

Here we are with our lip overs. I chose a bright red and I do love the lip gloss that gave very good hydrating and pigmented coverage without the typical sticky feeling.

My Favourite Daily Wear Lipsticks

Hi Loves!

Today I’d like to share 5 of my favourite daily wear lipsticks… I use these lipsticks on rotation. 
Enabalista My Favourite Lipsticks 2015 002

From Left to Right: Etude House Dear My Wish Lipstick in PK001, Chanel Rouge Allure Fougueuse (138), Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Moisturizing Lipstick Pink Punch 30, Etude House Etoinette Crystal Shine in PRD301, Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine 320 Surreal Sun.

Yes you’ll notice that the bullets are quite similar in colour, ranging from pink to orangey red. You know how when you like something, like denim top, you end up buying and having several different type of denim tops? I tend to veer towards pink and orangey reds that complements an everyday natural look for work while still having a visible and vibrant colour. 🙂Enabalista My Favourite Lipsticks 2015 001

Swatches! I arranged the colours from the pinkest to red to orangey red. I tend to use Etude House Lipsticks a lot because the colours are very sweet and natural, moisturizing plus the packaging is really cute. All of these lipsticks have great pigmentation, I usually just use one coat (and touch up when necessary) although for events I’d go for double coat for longer wear. Chanel lipstick has a push and pop secure lock which is pretty cool whilst the Estee Lauder has a magnetic lock. I also prefer this older series for Estee Lauder which has a slimmer casing.  Of these 5, Elizabeth Arden’s lipstick is the newest so I haven’t used it much, its similar to Etude House’s PK001, but darker that’s why I like it too, haha!

If you haven’t, follow me on my Instagram @ena_teo  (or check out my recent posts on my side bar ->) cause I update almost daily there and I share a lot more new beauty products faster than I do here on the blog! 😛
