Revlon Matte Lipstick - Pink Pout (vs Rimmel Airy Fairy)

Today's post goes to Revlon Matte Lipstick - Pink Pout
This is a creamy baby-pink/nude pink and lilac hint 
to the lipstick with a lovely matte finish.

The color is true to what the product picture shows and stays true on the lips.
This is my go to drugstore instantly adds freshness and brightens the 
face a bit, very lovely and natural... However, the formula for this lipstick is a little 
drier so I recommend using a lip balm underneath. Apply the lip balm for at least 5 minutes, 
once your lip absorbed the moisture, you can apply the lipstick. And you will have your 
lovely "matte" finish lips. 

Another way is to use lip scrub, it will not only eliminates dry, 
flaky skin and leaves the lips soft and moisturized. 
I tried this hand scrub recipe to my lips, it works very very good :)
(I know, it seems a lot of work just to apply a matte lipstick *_*)

gorgeous matte pink 
When I saw this Revlon Pink Pout in the store, I thought it's a bit similar to
Rimmel's Airy Fairy, see picture above, the color stickers are so similar right?
The lipstick is plastic wrapped, it is hard to tell what the color look like..
I picked it up and thought I'd give it a try since the color is so pretty..
 Comparisons of these 2 lovelies (under natural sunlight)
Swatches of the two under natural sunlight

They are actually quite different,
both colors are so pretty and they give a nature nude-pink shade.
very happy with the new shade I got.

What's your favorite drugstore lipstick?

The Body Shop - Earth Lovers Lemon & Thyme Shower Gel

Recently I have been in love with this 
I received this as a reader's gift from allure magazine a while ago :)

If you are a green person and love the planet, 
and love using things that are nature 
and organic as much as you can, 
then this is for you....

but this is more on a pricey side, for 250mL/8.4 oz it costs $12

The scents of this shower gel is amazingly fresh and clean.

It's also 100% biodegradable which means the product is 
capable of decaying through the action of living organisms. 
(you just learned something new^^)

Ingredients are also all nature, 
no sulphates, no parabens, no colorants, and soap free.

The bottle is 100% recycle plastic bottle. 
Every time I use this bottle I feel like 
I was showing my love to the earth.. ha ha ha

If you are interested in seeing what other scents they have 
in the earth lovers shower gel range, click here.
I think I might like Fig & Rosemary, Pear & Lemongrass sounds good, too.

Nail of the Day: SKIN FOOD Walnut Aroma

Today's Nail of the Day goes to SKIN FOOD Walnut Aroma, BR608 (香氣核桃). I got this nail polish from my sister long long time ago... I think at least 3-4 yrs? SKIN FOOD is a beauty based company from Korea, this brand is pretty popular in Asia with its wild color selections and affordable prices. Their products are made in Korea that use ingredients of natural food substances which are used mainly in beauty care... 

This Walnut Aroma color (BR608) is a lovely and clean nude polish. Four coats were essential for this opaque and glossy finish you see in the pictures. It's such a classic, clean and lovely shade on the nails. <3
