Barry M Lip Paints in Sunset and Pink Ribbon

              Barry M Lip Paints

Hi!!! I am back. Well... Hopefully. I got my first taste of an actual appearance as a lawyer a while at the Prosecutor's office. It was really nothing compared to a court hearing.. but yes.. F na F ako.. In other words, feel na feel ko.. hahaha  It was fun and of course I was perspiring to death because I waited for an hour to be called. Now, thinking over what I did a while ago.. I honestly think that I made some mistakes.. But I need to start learning now. I am loving my job now. Well, this is not rewarding financially but I want experience. I have been remiss in updating this lately. It's definitely hard juggling professional work with blogging. I envy bloggers who have all the time in the world to blog. (HONESTLY!) But lawyering is really my profession, blogging comes next and only as a hobby.

Moving on, I received these lipsticks from Sweety Pink Cosmetics ( Sweety Pink Cosmetics is a local online shop which sells Mememe Cosmetics, Barry M, Beauty UK, Lipcote and a whole lot more. I chose these shades because their swatches look so pretty online! When I swatched them, they looked different than the swatches on the net. Also, I was expecting them to be matte like my Barry M Shocking Pink but these shades have satiny finish.

These shades go on really smooth on the lips and they give that glossy look. It lasts like most normal lipsticks would last on my lips. It can lasts for 3-4 hours without eating on my lips. It is more moisturizing than Barry M's shocking pink which is matte. Compared to NYX Black Label Lipsticks, these lipsticks appear more opaque and a bit more pigmented even with just a swipe. 

I made two lip swatches of these lipsticks. 


One in natural day light and fluorescent light.
Sunset is a beautiful and rich orange shade with hints of red. It is not too vibrant and intimidating. I have been using it for quite some time now even in the office. It looks so nice on my yellow skin complexion.  This shade is perfect for summer!!!

These photos are taken under natural light and fluorescent light.
It may look like a cool shade of pink but the other swatch shows the closer shade.
 Pink Ribbon is a medium pink shade with very slight rosy undertones.  I thought that it would appear peachy pink on my lips but it looks more pink on me. 

What do you think of two tone lipstick? :D
I really love that the shade Sunset showed so beautiful on this picture. 

That's it. I will be announcing the winner of the Nanny Rose Summer Loot Bag tomorrow. 

Godbless everyone.
