MAC Sheen Supreme Full Speed

MAC Full Speed
SR92 ($24.5)

From MAC website:
Combining the colour impact of a Lipstick with the shine sheen of a Lipglass, Sheen Supreme creates the perfect hybrid - with no compromise. Lightweight, non-sticky, slick to apply and comfortable to wear. 
This is a must-have for all those who have craved this kind of fusion.

Full Speed, described as "bright clean yellow pink" on the mac website, is a light pink coral, close but lighter to MAC Impassioned. I just really love the texture of these l/s. It's buttery when applied, and even 
with the glossy texture, it isn't sheer and gives the right amount of pigment to the lips.

Sephora Nail Patch Art

From the Sephora website:
Nail Patch Art

What it is:
A collection of adhesive nail art patches. 

What it does:
Give nail art a try with this collection of patches that add fun patterns and shine to fingertips and toes! Each set of 18 patches were specifically designed to fit all nail sizes. They apply ultra-easily and provide long wear—with zero drying time or smudging! 

What else you need to know:
Each patch is made of three layers of film for extreme shine and long wear: the base coat film ensures long wear, the color film provides intense color, and the top coat creates 100-percent shine.

I was at Sephora and saw these leopard print nail patch, and thought to give this product a try out of curiosity. I bought it at SR50+ ($14+) 

It came with a small rectangle cardboard which I have no idea what it was for. :p


The instructions were easy to follow. However, I don't recommend tearing the excess sticker. I tried it and it tore a huge piece so I had to use another one. I do recommend that you fold, and file out the excess. It's easier and gives a more clean finish.

 I finished it off with OPI top coat to make it last longer.

After 2 weeks
Only minimal chipping considering I do chores everyday!

Would I purchase again? Definitely!

I kept getting compliments at the mall, random strangers holding my hands and looking at my nails. LOL. I love that it was easy to apply even if it was my first time. I can't review on the difficulty of removing these stickers cause I still have them on.

MAC Sheen Supreme Insanely It

Insanely It, described as "watermelon pink" on the MAC website. I just love how these l/s glides on the lips and it always leaves my lips moisturized. I bought it at MAC for SR92 ($24.5)

Dior Addict 623 Beige Mondaine

I bought this l/s few weeks ago, and immediately tried to take a good pic of it but it was so difficult cause  these l/s have rounded feet so I couldn't stand them straight and it kept on rolling down, and that explains the"boo boo" cause it fell off while I was trying to take a photo of it. >_<

I bought this l/s at Sephora for SR160 ($42.6). I don't usually buy high end makeup here cause it's so over priced, but when I swatched it on my hand, I just had to buy it! It's so pretty! It's a warm rosy plum with purple micro glitters. This l/s is so moisturizing and made my dry lips unnoticable. It's creamy, opaque, and has a glossy finish. It is my new favorite l/s and great for everyday wear. I usually wear it with just curled lashes with 2 coats of mascara, a rosy blush, and I'm all set!

I swatched it together with 2 of my l/s for comparison. I took the photo with my point and shoot, but I couldn't find the cord & I couldn't upload it on my computer, so I just took a photo of it from my phone.
