2016 was a year of makeup hauls for me. There's so much makeup that I finally said to myself, I have to start posting it to my blog before they add up even more and lose the opportunity and time to do so. This 2017, I swear, is the year for more beauty and makeup reviews, so please bear with me! First off, is sharing my lipstick collection. I previously posted a couple of reviews and swatches of some from my collection and you may check it all in this link. Anyway, since the Beauty and the Beast live-action reboot premiere is just right around the corner and there's still no confirmed collaboration with Canadian makeup brand MAC Cosmetics, here is a piece from MAC Cosmetics x Disney's Cinderella collection instead.

My Duty Free Philippines Makeup Haul | MAC Cosmetics & Evian

My Duty Free Philippines Makeup Haul (from left to right):
Evian Facial Spray, MAC Cosmetics Foundation Pump, and lipsticks

Duty Free Philippines has always been (mostly) the OFW and his/her family's go-to for pasalubongs whenever one arrives back home here in the Philippines. It's conveniently located inside or at least near the airports, so whenever one forgets, or just impulsively thinks of buying anything, you just drop by at their store.

In November 20, 2014, in a post published by Vogue, it was announced that Italian fashion designer who's based in Paris, Giambattista Valli was collaborating with Canadian cosmetics brand MAC Cosmetics for a makeup collection to celebrate the designer's ten-year anniversary of his self-titled fashion house. A lip collection that consists of five blooming, freshly cut garden shades and a gloss. The collection was released this summer, July 2015 in the US, Canada, and Europe and was sold out immediately online in MAC Cosmetics, Nordstrom and Macy's websites after its launch! I know, because I was one of the few fortunate ones to have it before it was gone. ;)

Ever since Kylie Jenner started flaunting her "fuller lips" and wearing vampy lipsticks, I started too, joining the bandwagon. She's into wearing dark lipsticks--plum, black, oxblood, dark nudes, etc. Kylie soon began my peg when it comes to choosing my next color of lipstick. And this lip color is definitely my first Kylie Jenner-lip-color peg.

MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium review



I've been collecting MAC Lipsticks for quite some time now, so I finally decided to try a different product from them. Thankfully though, my face powder back then was running out! So the boyfriend insisted that he should buy me a MAC face powder. How sweet of him. Tee hee!

Beauty Tips and Tricks | How To Achieve Luscious Red Lips

Growing up, I was made to believe that red lipstick means being associated with the term "flirt" or an "sl*t" because the color red was too bold and sophisticated for an average lady. As a teenager, I have dared trying out red lipsticks, but with that negative connotation in mind, I always thought that it wasn't meant for me.
