Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick + Update

I sooo miss blogging and doing FOTDs. A lot.. I have been really focusing on my studies lately and its really tiring and stressful. I have been looking forward to summer to give time for my blog but I have been admitted to the Solicitor General's office for internship (hoorah!!) and coupled with a mock bar on the 30th of May which means no summer for me.. :C Anyways, my bestfriend came home last 28th of February from Canada and I asked her to buy me stuffs. I was surprised that she gave everything to me without asking for payment. She considers the stuffs as her gift or pasalubong for me.. SWEET!! I got revlon photo ready in golden beige (this is now available in the philippines but this shade is not.. more on this soon) and lipsticks and gloss. One of the items I asked her is Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick.
I asked for red revival and park ave. peach. I must say these lipsticks ROCK!!! I find them better than NYX round lipstick. Their colors are rich and vibrant and goes smoothly. I really want to try all shades!!! haha! Here are the swatches of the lipstick:

Red Revival

This is by far the best red lipstick I have ever tried. It does not look tacky nor made my teeth yellow at all. I adore this lipstick so much! Look how nice and vibrant it looks.

Park Ave. Peach
dsc 212
This color is a coral peach shade which look mlbb on me. Very flattering on my skintone too. :D Howver, This looks like Nyx heredes on the softer side. Nothing special in this shade in my honest opinion.

The packaging is very stylish. I have seen color sensational lipstick locally and it does not look good as these red ones.. They look HOT and Sexy inside my makeup kit.

Lipstick Eating has never tasted this good! hehe

Skin MD Shielding Lotion

Skin MD Natural is a shielding lotion, a very special type of lotion helping the skin restore its integrity, enhance its protective functions so that the skin is able to heal naturally and regain its youthful appearance. Skin MD Natural works by bonding with cells of the skin's outermost layer to form what works as an invisible shield. This layer of protection prevents environmental irritants and pollutants from penetrating the skin, while sealing in the skin's own natural oils and moisture, helping resolve the dry skin condition. Skin MD Natural uses only the finest natural ingredients, and is
focused on urging the skin to be active, and to use its own moisture to effectively heal itself. It is not oily or sticky, doesn't sit on top of your skin leaving a greasy residue on everything you touch, it doesn't rub or wash off easily, is hypoallergenic, fragrance, colorant and paraben free and dermatology tested.

I was given the opportunity by 21st Century Formulations to try out a sample of their skin md shielding lotion. I finished the whole bottle for a month and I absolutely love it. Honestly speaking I am not into lotions because I find them sticky due to our humid weather here in the Phils. but this lotion is an exception. I used it on my legs and arms and they feel soft and well moisturized without any greasiness at all. I have super dry skin and I apply it only once every after bath. It keeps my skin moisturized throughout the day. I experienced no skin irritations and it even helped my psoriasis from flaring up. I really recommend this lotion to those who have sensitive skin.

Deionized water (Aqua) Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract (Aloe Vera) Cyclopentasiloxane Dimethicone Methyl Gluceth-20 Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) Arnica Montana Flower Extract (Arnica) Symphytum Officinale Leaf Extract (Comfrey) Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract (Chamomile) Achillea Millefolium Extract (Yarrow) Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer 1,2 Hexanediol Caprylyl Glycol Butylene Glycol Aminomethyl Propanol Phenoxyethanol

Skin MD Natural is over 93% "natural" which is well within the highest echelon of actual percentage of natural ingredients of all products that have the word "natural" on their label. The ingredients in Skin MD Natural that are not "natural" are of food or medical grade and on FDA's most safe list.

The first thing I noticed when I received this product is that it is PARABEN -FREE. Nice right? I am rest assured that slathering this lotion on my skin will not cause any irritation nor adverse effects on my health and skin. The formula is very mild. I even use it on my face. The consistency is a bit watery but do not be deceive because it moisturizes really well. Over all,, this is by far one of my favorite lotion next to Nutraderm.

Have a Happy day everyone!!
