Revlon Lip Butter

I first encoutered this on Beauty Broadcast , it happened that I saw an TV ad about this lip butter on my bus while watching this video on my ipad. Knowing that I can find it  in Hong Kong, I can’t resist getting one for myself.

The color is vibrant, and the texture is INCREDIBLE !

It is difficult to describe the texture, its soft, cream-like, very moisturizing.. and my lips feels soft, moisturized and bouncy! And I love that the color looks soft and natural but yummy, kind of like my own lips – but have better color and more boucy …. so soft and baby-like.  I got one in Peach Parfait.

It’s $99HKD, with loads of different color, you have to got your own to understand. Highly recommended !

(Malin+Goetz) Lip Moisturizer.

I tried many lip balm – Chanel, Fresh, Bobbi Brown, Dior etc.. so many !

By far, this (Malin+Goetz) Lip Moisturizer is my favorite, I keep coming back for it in the past two years.

This is what I want from my lip balm – something that keep my lips soft, long-lasting, not super sticky, not waxy, not drying up my lips, keep it moisturized, glossy and smooth….

Many lip balm feels good on lips at the first moment, however, with time, they feel waxy, and they just sit on top of the lips, do nothing to the skin beneath.

What makes this one outstanding is that, it penetrates the skin and keep your lip smooth and moisturized.

So, this is a true MOISTURIZER of lips.

They used to have it in Joyce Beauty (I reside in Hong Kong). Now Malin+Goetz have their online shop and they are also available in some cosmetic shops in Central ( at along Lynhust Terrace, Central)

good luck.

VSX Lip color

Weeks ago, I come across VSX’s new promotion video. And omg, the girls’ lips simply look healthy and delicious.

The video


Unfortunately, VS is not available in Hong Kong.

So, I went to M.A.C. and try to find the closest alternatives. The mua recommended A81 See Sheer (from the lustre collection). See sheer is a more natural bright coral color, but it is not as bright as the one I saw in the pictures (and better, in the video) . But I brought it anyway, as it is a perfect and sexy color for daily use.

The other I tried is A61 Chatterbox from my own M.A.C. collection which is pinker and brighter than See Sheer and is a color close enough.

I use M.A.C. lip primer on my lips and then use M.A.C’s pro longwear B81 Good to Go as a base ( which is a bright orange-y color) than top it with See Sheer or Chatterbox, which give me a color that close enough to the color I see in the video. (plus the benefit of long wear with Good to Go)

though at the end, I still brought a lipstick from VS as I am so sure they use Be Mine on the girls in the video.

And importantly, to reproduce that kind of natural finish on the girls, you need to use a brush to put the color on.

I absolutely love lipsticks. Just with a little change in lip color , the whole feeling is changed.

Will I be restocking this ? Probably not. The reason is, I purchased this as I want to know the actual color, and there is actually many choices out there with similar color, may be, better texture.
