Mini Birthday Haul & Part 2 Blovet’s Lipstick Collection

Hi Sweeties, I’ve been pretty busy cause of what else but work and also cause yesterday was my birthday **- I needed to catch up with my own family and of course it’s kinda depressing turning a quarter of a century !  I’m wondering just how I jumped from 15 to 25, accompanied with fine lines, open pores,scarring and all >< haha..

But seriously, I don’t talk too much abt my personal stuff except during tags cause this blog is reserved for my passion. I would have to make one special exception though:>

I would love love love to share and pass on my birthday blessings to my hubby  whom I have known for a decade. I am not a mushy person but when he looked me in the eye and told me “happy birthday sweetie , I’ve known u since you were young and I’m so happy to be with you”, my heart just melted. He is so special to me and my life would not be the same without him. He reads this blogs always and I’m not very expressive with my feelings but I hope he knows just how much I adore him. I really do :)

Also, to all my dearest and closet friends & blogger pals who wished me a Happy Birthday, Thanks Sweeties:) You make turning a year older so much better! Me adore all my darling friends :)

Of course, My darling got my prezzies for my birthday!!! All makeup related :)

I’m going to do a review on these items in my next post! Super excited cause of the fairy drops and my nude-pinkish lip collection is starting to grow:))

Okay, moving on,I was actually intending to dump this blog entry cause of the discoloration from the silly blue light but since there were some request for more lip swatches, I thought why not?

 IMG_2123  IMG_2122

Aren’t these pens cute? I’m going to start making it a point to get cute or attractive stationary cause it makes me happy!

Before I applied all my lip products, I would use this healing Lavender Balm to moisturize my lips and it’s the reason why my lips didn’t bleed or peel after so many swatches. This lip balm is a life saver for dry and chapped lips. Currently, I use it every night as a lip conditioner b4 bed.

A gorgeous purple clear gloss called Envy Me from TOO FACED cosmetics. I like this gloss a lot. Surprisingly, this dark looking purple gloss, turns  a soft pink on my lips when applied alone. It makes lips look ultra glossy. Sorry about the blur picture.

Dior Lipgloss. I don’t know what possessed me to buy this but this was back in the days when I didn’t know about online blog reviews. I am so la la with this lip gloss. The shimmer particles are so big and I am not a fan of multi color reflective glitter..

 

IMG_2150IMG_2154 

If you need an affordable brownish nude to wear alone or to layer on top of another color, MAYBELLINE NUDE is simply the way to go. Color is a sheer brownish and the finish makes my lips look so moisturized and smooth. No drying of the lips at all. Love this!


IMG_2155IMG_2157

My mommy got me MAC’s Lipglass early this year and I love it cause it looks lovely alone. Not ultra sticky, nice color payoff and it doesn’t glide off. Love this lipglass cause it can paired with so many brown or nudish lipsticks!

 

IMG_2158IMG_2161

I don’t really know how to wear pinky shimmer lipstick but surprisingly, this Rimmel High Gloss Lipstick 013 was perfect for day wear. It’s moisturising without being overly slippery and it looks lovely paired with a pinkish or clear gloss!

 

IMG_2163 IMG_2166 

Gentle Coral lip conditioner from MAC looks crazy in the pot but it gives this lovely orangey color on the lips. Perfect for a lazy or no makeup day, it’s definitely a tinted lip color that I revisit from time to time!

 

IMG_2168IMG_2171 I usually love NYX products but this lipstick is not a favourite. I bought it in Japan cause it looked so gorgeous in the stick and the smell was lovely too. It was an implusive buy and  I kinda regret it. It’s very slippery. The color payoff is not fantastic and usually you would have to apply some foundation for the real color to show up. I think I might try to use this lipstick together with a matte lipstick. The packaging is gorgeous though - black and sleek . One perk though is that it’s very smooth upon application.

 

IMG_2173 IMG_2176

Initially when I first bought shy girl, I was quite crazy about it. After a few weeks, this lipstick broke on me and it made me pretty pissed cause I did not toss it around in my makeup bag as I usually do. This lipstick is super slippery and it isn’t tat great in covering my pigmented lips. The coral shade is very pretty and lovely but it’s not for pigmented lips like mine.

 

Sorry for being away so long and not commenting… I’ve got so much blogs to catch up on :)

Blovet Beauty said...

Happy -belated- Birthday! Hope you had a wonderful time, and I wish you many more!
Thanks for sharing your haul and swatches, they're gorgeous =)

Dee said...

How awesome is it that we made a new post on the same day? LOL. I'm realy happy you had a nice time on your big day dear - even better sharing it with your bro and dad! I hope they had a great birthday as well! I wanted that mascara too! I was thinking of getting it when I've used up the MJ mascara you sent me. I can't wait for you to review it sweety!

I really hope you get my package soon. The P.O lady said it would take 6-10 days, but I'm not sure about customs. Its in an ugly bubble wrap this time, so I hope nothing breaks or cracks. =\

Your lips look amazing! So full and the colors look great on you. (:

amynaree said...

Happy Bday Darling!! I'm right there with you on the aging haha This year has definitely been a year of noticing fin lines, and other random imperfections for me as well :)

You and your hubby are so sweet. Sometimes simple worlds do make such a big impact on one's heart ^__* You are so lucky you have found the one!

So cute that he got you make up! The fairy drop mascara sounds so interesting and cute.

Pop Champagne said...

e.motion in motion said...

Happy belated b-day girl!! Awesome swatches too, you have preetty lips =)

~Lisa said...

Happy Belated Birthday! And your husband is sooo sweet! ^.^ I'm sure he knows how you feel

And those a great prezzies!! I'd love to try those products =P Especially the Fairy Drops.

Great lip swatches too! The Too Faced gloss is soo shiny and glossy! Me likey! But not a fan of the Dior gloss...

If Singapore carries this, you should try Maybelline's Moisture Extreme Lipstick in Nude Blush! It's a great pinky-nude for really cheap. [It's in a red packaging]

Sassy J'adore said...

Hi sweetie!

First off, I would like to wish you a be-lated birthday. I haven't been on blogger for 3 weeks and I'm so behind of blog updates.

Those are very great gifts u got, girl. =)
Thanks for the lippies swatches. My fav is the Envy Me from TOO FACED lipgloss.

Thanks so much for your sweet words and comments. <3

I believe I will leave my blog up for awhile even though I may be MIA for awhile. Like someone said, I'll never know when I have the itch to blog again. lol.

sesame said...

I think I should be weeping about my age if a quarter of a century is old! Hahaha... Anyway, beauty is ageless so there you go!

Hey, your hubby is so sweet and great that he's able to pick up beauty items for you! :)

The Lavender Balm is from M&S? Looks interesting! Btw, you have such sexy lips. Very kissable!

Blovet Beauty said...

Jasmine sweetie, Thhks I love the gifts too!

Dee Sweetie. We have weird powers rigghtt!!! Tom is my dad birthday and i gotta wish him and be extra nice to him!! even though he's my boss!! hahaha
Hmm.. I just started using the fairy drop mascara and its very heavy duty. Almost like it last the whole day and it reminds me of fasio almost. Thank you for your birthday gift Dee, U always send me things I adore :)

Amy sweetie!! I hope u enjoy my brown picture tag!! hehehe... I think noticing imperfections come with age. Maybe it's all part of the aging process.. i'm trying not to be too hard on myself abt it! U have great skin, so no sweat!
My hubby knows my obssession is makeup and i would choose it over many other things. hehehe

Ms Pop Champagne sweetie, heheheh ... stalkers are scary!!!

Adin sweetie, U like my yakult pen!!! hehehehe... its cute and gd to write with... I can drink 2 yakult in one sitting :) high 5 yakult addict!

Clearly Beautiful sweetie!! thanks for the awards

Lisa Sweetie!! I have been told my lips are pouty as hell. never luscious. but pouty.. hated them when i was younger cause i looked so ugly with lippies on. hehehe

Toothfairy sweetie, I'm gonna do ur little game in my next blog entry :)

Nanzy sweetie, My hubby is super sweet! i agree :) I swear he knows all the cosmetics items by heart... hahaha

Emotion sweetie, Thks!!!

Lisa sweetie!! oh I gotta try out Maybelline nude blush as you mentioned... Pinky nude sounds like my current craze!!! I love the too faced lip gloss.. very very glossy without being too sticky!!

Tokyogstargirl sweetie, everyone gets older!!! but u are a sweetheart!

Ateliergal sweetie!!!! I don't mind trying it at all :)

LUNA sweetie = I agree!!

Uinisan sweetie, Thank u for the bday wishes sweetie!!!can't wait till u start blogging again!!
I hope to age more gracefully and to live everyday well. To learn to be more accepting of my flaws and to be more grateful of what I've been blessed with. Not easy but there has to be an upside to growing older right??

AHleessaa sweetie, thks!! me and my hubby actually squabble alotttt... but that's how we are. we don't do mushy mushy but we show affection in weird ways.. hehehe

Simichiko sweetie... thanks for the well wishes!!! I feel lucky to know my hubby. he's been there for me through everything... sigh... he's great!! still wondering about how I feel about the fairy drops since its only my first day using it

Sassy Sweetie, Great that u decided not to take down ur blog.. u have great outfits and always look so cute! but watever it is, u shld blog for urself and u might get the itch soon :0 hehe

Sesame sweetie, yes, I gotta be more positive abt age. its a number and graceful aging with tons of face mask packed in is the way to go!! hahaha
the lavender balm was sent to me by Blair, i dun think it's by M&S, at least I haven't seen it there.. I think its by rose and apothecary
