NARS - Dolce Vita Lipstick

Posted by Rica Bargo at 9:23 PM 0 comments

NARS Dolce Vita is my very first NARS Lipstick. I bought it over Sephora (when it was still open here in Hong Kong) for HKD 210. It is a brownish peach / nude lipstick. It's in the middle of all that I mentioned. It's perfect for my shade, since I am classified as having a fair-medium skin-tone. It is sheer, compare to the other NARS Lipstick that I have (Schiap).

I love using this because it can be used everyday, not that loud to be noticed by my mom.

I find it quite hard though to find a perfect blush for this (can you suggest me some, please?). I tried using peachy colored blush to go with this but it doesn't suit.

For the staying power of this, it stays on your lips for roughly 3-4 hours WITHOUT having any kind of liquids. I think that's pretty good for a lipstick.

And take note : It's very moisturizing, scent free and dry free.

August Haul ... PART I ( Part II Coming Soon! )

Posted by Rica Bargo at 8:48 PM 0 comments

Okay, I have to say this, I'm sorry for the long delay, but I've been busy and all that these past few weeks. I haven't been blogging like before nowadays because I have a lot of things to do besides blogging.

I am currently doing some online studies for my career, so that's taking most of my time lately. Also, summer classes are up, and I got loads of classes lately. I've been working 5 days a week lately, meaning, only 2 days that I got to stay at home, if I don't go out on my holidays.

Also, I've been on a search for a new job for the incoming school year since last school year was over. But the search is over, I already found a new job. Yey! Anyway, enough talking! Here are my purchases for this month. It's quite a lot, but there are more to come because I asked my sister to buy me some more stuffs from USA this August. YES! She's coming back here in Hong Kong for her summer vacation and I asked her to buy stuffs for me that cannot be purchases here in Hong Kong. Anyway, here's my own purchases. PART 1!

H&M - Bronzing Brush

Posted by Rica Bargo at 5:44 PM 0 comments

This is the crappiest, useless bronzer I've ever encountered. I got this on sale from H&M last winter season. Since I got two pieces of bronzers at that time, I decided to use the other one first, and this one later on. And so, I used up my favorite bronzer already and now, it's time to give this one a try and my first reaction the first time I swiped this onto my face?! How come I can't see any changes?! Maybe I should put more on... How come I can only see glitters?! Damn!

Well, first, the brush sucks. It's a very hard type of brush, I don't even know where H&M got these materials from. It irritates my skin and it's very hard to make the powder even to my skin. Second, this is more of a highlighter in "bronze" than a "bronzing powder." All I can see is glitters and no brownish reaction to my face whenever I put them on.

I'm very much disappointed with this product that this will go straight to the bin! OUCH!
