Beauty UK Lipsticks

I'm a lipstick junkie!!!
I am not ashamed of it..

I have discovered this brand Beauty UK, early this year, and the first products I got from the said brand are

A few weeks ago, I got the chance to get my hands on their lipsticks.

Here they are..

These lipstick has that minty scent which is very pleasant and not overwhelming at all!
AND!!! There's a slight cooling sensation on the lips when applied!

I got 4 shades. From Red to Pink to Neutral color..

Beauty UK Lipstick in Tango.

  • It is a brown lipstick with gold shimmers, almost glittery.

Beauty UK Lipstick in Sunset.

  • a beautiful orangy-red lipstick. Very cool toned. With multi-colored shimmers/glitters.

Beauty UK Lipstick in Passion.

  • striking hot pink, almost leans towards red. (the photo shows that its a pretty pink shade, but it's actually darker.)

Beauty UK Lipstick in Chelsea.
  • a beige-nude color. Really pale.

What intrigued me about these lippies, is that, on the cover, that colored thingy (haha! sorry) you can actually take that off, and on that is a hidden gloss, not actually hidden but you know what I mean.. Haha!
Yes, that's a gloss!!! Interesting right?

NYX Round lipsticks actually has almost the same packaging but the NYX ones are not gloss but just a colored rubber/silicone.
BUT!!! Some NYX product do have glosses on their cap!!! Yes they do!!!
(I'll talk about that on the next post though..haha!)

So, here's what the gloss looks like.
Obviously, you're going to need a lipbrush to get the product, but you can always use your fingers.. *wink*

Here are some swatches..

The thing is, when I apply it on my lips, yes it glides smoothly, but my lips felt really uncomfortable with these lipsticks. Especially with the Tango & Sunset, the ones with shimmers/glitters.

I don't know, the consistency of that two does not appeal to me. :(

The other two, on the other hand, felt really smooth & silky on the lips.


  • I'm afraid its a 6/10 for me.. :( It's not a total fail, but not impressive either.
  • Another thing is that, it is not true to color, especially CHELSEA, it is too light and pale when applied.
  • Packaging wise, it's OK. It's not the sturdiest lipstick packaging that I own but it's definitely sturdier than the NYX Round Lipsticks.

  • No, I don't think so.. :(

If you are interested with these lipsticks though, you can visit
The Makeup Suite on Facebook.
and also follow Anna's blog, owner of The Makeup Suite.
She's just starting in the world of blogging but she writes & photographs well..

That's it!
Hope this post gave you some ideas on the said product.
I hope you enjoyed it! ^_^
'Til next time my lovelies!!!

Smile always and Stay beautiful

MeMeMe Flawless Face Collection Review

Remember my review on the MeMeMe Flawless Pressed Powder?
Remember that I said I'm saving up for something similar to it???

Well, it's here!!!

Anyway, I'm talking about this MeMeMe Flawless Face Collection.

Manong JRS delivered this last September 4. (read my MeMeMe haul HERE)
(Thank you so much MakeupHub!)

Yes, I've been using it since then!
Ok, let's talk about the packaging first, shall we???

The packaging is made of cardboard and it comes with a cut-out carton that you slip the box into to keep the box closed. (see photo below)

The box has a ribbon attached to the box's flap that acts as a "handle" when you open it.. ^_^

Aren't the design on box looks so elegant?
And the box is really sturdy, mind you, that means I can recycle it.. ☺

The next photo, you'll see the back of the carton, which indicates the ingredients of each item included in the collection.
Back of the carton

  4. MeMeMe Flawless Loose Powder Translucent (12g)
  5. MeMeMe Loose Powder Brush
As you can see, the collection includes full size of each product.

hello, SALADBOX!!! ♥

Have you heard about the Glossy Box?
It's a beauty subscription wherein you'll pay a monthly subscription, then they will send you different products from makeup to skincare, to perfumes and such..

I have been watching beauty gurus based in the US wherein they vlog about opening their monthly box..

Being a makeup enthusiast, I have always been envious of that concept. I have been hoping & praying that soon, we Filipinos will have our own version.

And then, yesterday, my dreams & prayers have been granted!!!

May I present to you the SALADBOX!!!

Basically, you have to visit their website, click the join button, enter your email address, wait for their reply, and voila! You're almost done! ☺

So, I won't say much, I'll let the photos talk to ya'll.. hahaha! *forgive my photos I just used my phone..*

These items arrived this afternoon! And I almost died! hahaha!
Remember my post about the first Mememe product I have?

MeMeMe Flawless Face Collection

What's inside?

This Collection retails for PHP 2,300.00. You'll save PHP 1,000++ compared to buying the items individually. The Face Base itself is around PHP 1,150 already!

I had to put the lipstick itself on the freezer to cool and solidify again, it melted in the hot weather because the formulation is very creamy.

PHP 450.00

I was laughing so hard the first time I tried popping it open, I had a hard time opening it! hahaha! I almost threw it against the wall! lol
