Color Crazy

Lippies

Can you imagine the world without color? I like it a little exaggerated:) Tested three Revlon lippies. Next to MAC lipsticks (which I’d usually order from Manila or abroad) I’m biased towards Revlon (available only at the Robinsons here in Ilocos), first of all, ‘coz they don’t test on animals and secondly, ‘coz they constantly come up with new intriguing colors and formulations.

Revlon Lippies

1.) Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in 020 Baby Pink, 2.) Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain Rendezvous, 3.) Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain Sweetheart

I’m loving the balm stains that look like crayons. Omg, the color stays on forever! The downside — the color comes out darker than what you see in the tube. I suggest you test them at the store. Looks like any highly pigmented creamy lipstick for the first couple of hours afterwhich it turns less glossy and leaves you with a rich stain. The color is buildable and won’t feather nor dry out. I plan to get the more natural Honey next. Oh, there’s that Carmex-like minty feeling that goes away pretty quickly.

Baby Pink Color Burst is a pretty subtle pink that’s not too blue which makes it more wearable than mauvey pinks. You need to emphasize your eyes if you’re wearing an icy tone such as this one. The texture is ratherish sheer and needs touch-ups if you babble a lot:)

I used the Nail Lounge discount coupon Red Dot gave away at the MUD class. I’m beginning to adore the Klean Color nail lacquers. I’m constantly typing and the nail tips still look fresh on the sixth day. I got tired of the pearly baby blues I had last week, and so I fancied the Bang! Bang! Color! Neon Aqua that is more like vintage-y Wonder Woman blue than Cerulean.

Nailin’ The Nail Lounge

The Nail Lounge, Laoag

Recently pegged the new happening address in Laoag for a total hand and feet indulgence. Straightforwardly named The Nail Lounge, it is a neat space managed by cool people. Sheena and Claire made sure I was satisfied with my detoxifying hand spa and mani.

The Nail Lounge carries fashion-forward names in the nail biz such as Orly and Revlon, and soon on the shelves, Essie and OPI. Amazingly, they have a peppy stock of non-toxic colors for kikay pregnant moms and girls. You can bring in your guy to enjoy a relaxing service as well.

The chill sounds add to the mod vibe.

Nail caviar on my pointer fingers…. thinking of goin’ all out for a red-letter occasion. They have pretty colors to choose from. Though I’ve been using my hands tirelessly in the last two days, the caviar still looks delish.

The Nail Longe is located near the corner of Gen. Luna and Villanueva Streets in the heart of the Laoag.
