LIPSTICK OF THE WEEK- Estee Lauder pure color in NECTARINE

hello beautiful people!! good vibes good vibes.. starting this week I'll be featuring my very first lipstick of the week( so that I  can force myself to at least blog each week) I CANNOT BLOG EVERY DAY OR EVEN TWICE/THRICE A WEEK!! I just cannot do that..
If I can't make it to post weekly probably three times a month is fine.. ok i cheated i cannot even blog weekly!

why lipstick????? simply because I love lipstick.. besides my blog is entitled as lipstick and hijab! hahaha
really..if only I could pick one cosmetic that I cannot live without, its LIPSTICK!
I warned you though I don't have that MANY LIPSTICKS AS YOU CAN SEE ON SOME YOUTUBE gurus ok? 

The shade is warm orange-red side which I think complements well those who has fair skin, which is so not me!

I love the packaging!

swatch on my hand
when i saw the picture I was shocked to see gold pigments, it doesn't bother me though, I kinda like it!
 I didn't apply lip balm prior to application, but still my lips remains moisturized and well hydrated, thanks to its ingredient shea butter it may not be best when it comes to moisturizing but still glides on smoothly on the lips.Staying power is average, it fades a little after I ate lunch, still it leaves a a hint of color but not totally gone

sorry for the picture, I wasn't wearing any makeup at all when I took this photo and di ko feel ipakita ang feesshh ko,actually my nose was like soo big in this photo and no way I would show it to the world hahaha!

till next post!!

When it comes to foundation I choose carefully on what to buy, mainly because of my oily skin. Its really in the pain in the ass whenever I bought foundi that makes my skin more oily, I end up wasting money, I cannot give it either to my sister because they both have dry skin and of course they won't use this.What caught my attention in buying this because of the huge STAY MATTE written over the packaging,after reading positive and nega reviews I gave it a try, for drugstore brand its a bit cheaper too.

I got the shade 103 Ivory, I got the lighter shade but this doesn't bother me that much because the coverage is sheer, i have to squeeze in another round of foundation to cover my entire face.
Don't expect too much from this foundi, if you have dark spots, acne scars like me, I still rely on my trusty concealer.

it says fragrance free but I swear It has a certain smell that I cannot explain(smells like medicine to me), was it just me? or what??!! please do comment below if you tried this product..

when blended
tadahhh, its so sheer
 my bare skin.. this was not edited at all.Taken with natural light. See all my flaws, big pores and yah oily skin.
 moi wearing the stay matte

This product is pretty decent enough, but i won't repurchase again. I'm still on constant research on foundi that won't oil that much. It doesn't lived up to it's promise, after 2 to 3 hours my face was crazy oily.. I need to blot blot and blot. 

what I like
light to medium coverage, almost sheer I guess which is good for everyday use
I got this for 450php which is fairly inexpensive

what I don't like
I find the product too watery or shall i say oily... i thought this was oil free?
not a fan of its smell, but fades after awhile though. Still I don't like it
I got bumps at the end of the day, so does that mean my skin hates this? aww crap, I'm not sure but I'll give this a chance.
doesn't keep me matte
I find it cakey
not available locally available

Would I recommend this product?
In all fairness yah.. if this thing didn't work for me it doesn't mean it won't work on you either ok?
