This is the Lip Rouge G 303 which is the glossy type. The lipstick has the signature rose scent to it, some may think it's a bit strong, I have to admit that I think the scent is a bit strong when I first apply it.
Although it's the glossy finish, I feel it has more of a pretty sheen to the finish. It also has some very fine golden shimmers in it.
The color also shows up nicely on my lips without looking too rosy. I think it also enhances my lipcolor, especially because my lips are pigmented.
Even though this is my first Anna Sui lipstick, I'm really liking it a lot! It's very moisturizing, smooth and not sticky at all. In terms of lasting power, I get a couple hours before it's completely gone, only if I don't go drinking of eating anything.
I was looking at my eye brow pencil and realized how small it was! I'm actually going through this brow pencil really fast, so I decided to go and get a backup.
Who watches Michelle Phan's videos? (who doesn't!??) I saw the Lancome brow pencil and really wanted to give it a try so I went out to get the pencil in Sable. Compared to the current brow pencil I'm using (Maquillage GY950 2.5g), the Lancome one is a lot smaller in weight (1.05g). Kinda disappointed especially for the price of the pencil. Oh well, it was worth a shot.
The Lancome pencil is actually a lot softer than then Maquillage. When I first used it, I was surprised at how pigmented the color was too and how easy it was to fill in my brows. With that said, I think I need a lot more practice in using the Lancome pencil otherwise I'm gonna end up with brows that are too dark!
The two pencils are very similar, except I had to swipe the Maquillage a few more times to get the color more to show up more.
I rubbed a tissue on my arm and you can see which one obviously stays on better.
Life has been so difficult lately, so many changes and sometimes I feel like I threw poop into the fan and I can't seem to clean it, it's everywhere!!! But I do what I can to cope with the situation. This is also another reason why I haven't blogged much.
I did learn an important lesson through all this... Don't regret your decisions in life, live with the consequences and learn from them. Don't take things for granted and enjoy what you have. Most importantly, stop thinking so much and stop worrying about the what if's...and do what you think is right for yourself.
Until next time...I'm not sure when I'll be checking or updating my blog. Hopefully I won't have this dry spell for too long XD
