Maybelline Color Show Lipstick in Pink Punch

Hi gorgeous!

Here's a really pretty peachy pink shade from Maybelline...

Maybelline Color Show in Pink Punch

A tube is worth Php 165.00.

The Color Show line is somewhat new. It's believe it was launched sometime this year. There are around 20 shades available.

When you buy it, you'll see on the seal some info regarding the product (ingredients list, volume, where it was made).

The packaging is a simple, sleek tube. A more serious look compared to other lipstick designs from the brand.

This lipstick has a very mild pleasant smell. It's creamy and moisturizing. I don't need any lip balm underneath when I use this. Never encountered any lip chapping with this on!

I really like the shade—it's peachy pink! It's very sweet, simple, and feminine.

The shade is very rich and it makes my lips look moisturized and fuller. Lasting power is pretty decent. It can stay as long as 5 hours with minimal eating/drinking. 

This is really a good product. The quality is very good and it's extremely affordable! What else would you want, right? :D


Review : The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet

Hi loves!

Don't you just love the cool feeling on your face after a long, tiring day? I enjoy washing my face or the wind touching my skin when I face a fan or the air conditioner. I just love feeling the cold wind when I feel tired. It just feels so good, especially during the hot days of Manila weather.

Nowadays, I get to experience this cool sensation whenever I use this product from The Body Shop:

The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet
Php 995.00

This product was given to me by The Body Shop PH around a month ago and I've used it since.

Some details on the website:

An instant cooling sensation for all day hydration. This silky-soft moisturiser hydrates and refreshes skin with an ultra-light light formula.

quenches skin’s thirst
feels like a burst of freshness on skin
enriched with wheatgerm oil

How to Use:
Apply to face and neck after cleansing and toning using fingertips.

The jar is a thick, translucent frosted glass. It's quite heavy but it looks very pretty. 

The scent is like a mixture of something sweet and floral-ish. It's subtle and very pleasant so I don't think this can be considered an issue to those who are bothered with scented products. The consistency is really like a sorbet but lighter and without the stickiness of the real thing. 

It feels incredibly light on skin and it gets absorbed by the skin pretty fast. No need to wait too long for it to dry. You instantly feel the soothing cooling sensation too which will last a good 2-3 minutes. But try facing the air conditioner and you get that super cool and relaxing feeling! Super like!

This is supposed to be a day cream but I also use it at night. The amount of moisture this beautiful thing provides me is enough even when used as a night cream which usually has to be more intensive when it comes to moisturization.

I definitely recommend you to try The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet. It's the perfect for the Philippine weather, especially during the summer! :D

What are your thoughts on this product? Do you like products with cooling effects?
