Sunday is my drugstore day because my family and I stop by a mall near our church after lunch. Here’s three items I picked up, from L-R: Flormar Supermatte Lipstick in 209, Etude House Apricot Stick in 3 (Apple), Wet ‘n Wild Color Icon Trio in Walking on Eggshells.
Hand swatches from the two lip products. Left: Etude House Apricot Stick, Right: Flormar Supermatte Lipstick in 209. The two thin lines were leftover swatches from my drugstore trip.
I wanted the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, but they are too expensive here (Php 575 or about $15). The Etude House Apricot Sticks are just Php 198 each and a good buy if you want to try out a similar higher end/more expensive product. It gives good moisture, but it’s not sustained. The shade I got, 3 or Apple, is a light coral pink. It smells and tastes like apple! I like it a lot and will probably get more shades. 🙂
The Flormar Supermatte lipstick (Php 399) “[has a] velvety structure that gives the lips a mat and full look.” It’s a great creamy formula. 209 is a mauve-y pink. When I swatched it in the store, it was an old rose but on my lips it looks redder. I’ll see if I can take better swatches because the picture I have under looks super different. Maybe it’s my lip pigmentation but I’ll try it out more in the next couple of days.
First impression of the formulation is great. I got to try a Flormar lipstick (from a different line) that came in last month’s BDJ Box.
Flormar Supermatte Lipstick & Etude House Apricot Stick. Pardon my haphazard appearance. I took a nap and thought to post these. 🙂
I’ve been looking high and low for Wet ‘n Wild’s Color Icon Trio in Walking on Eggshells (Php 319), which has been raved about all over the world. I like it a lot, off the bat, but I haven’t tried it on my eyes yet. It seems like a good neutral palette.
That’s it for now, thanks for looking! 🙂
