Made a Comparison of

My favorite lippies.  
One from the Hello Kitty Collection Strayin' and the other  Revlon Color Burst Carnation 

MAC Strayin' and Revlon Carnation

Carnation and Strayin' 

Their swatches  are almost the same. Except for the texture. MAC straying is smoother and much easier to glide while Revlon color burst Carnation is a wee bit sticky. 

With Strayin' you can see that it is more pigmented while Carnation takes about 2 to 3 coats before you can achieve the color you desire. 

Yup MAC straying is much better but sadly this is LE and priced at Hk$ 125.00 or Php 750.00. While Revlon Color burst is  Hk$ 98.00 or Php 588.00 only (not sure if this is limited collection).

Yup, these 2 beautiful lippies  have their pros and cons. But I have them both so I must say I love them BOTH!!!

Hauling Like Crazy

Crossing between HK Island and Kowloon is always mezmerising for me. Specially if I see something fascinating like this. I was just seating on the ferry boat when I spotted this old junk. It was a total contrast of its back drop isn't it? That makes this picture beautiful I think.
Anyway, while crossing the harbour I was already thinking of what will I do next after I finished my main agenda,  which was to bring my friends' broken watch to ICE Watch Shop for a repair. 

Hmmm....lemme see lunch at CPK, Shop at Facess and roam around and shop  H&M before heading home. 
3hours after of walking and looking, here's  what I got (didn't include the ones from H&M no more time)  

Mac Brush Cleanser
Mac Primer
Mac lightful NC 30
MAC eyebrow powder Maple/ soft brown
Revlon Colorburst Lippies Ruby and Fushia (the other two were Mauve and Lilac which I bought the day before this) 
Revlon Color stay lip liner in Spice

I think I did great!!! =)

When I arrived home, I got a call for the Managing Director of Ice Watch and said that they are sorry for what had happened to the watch and that I can come back the following day to pick up the new classic watch  for my friend. (Wow!That was a fast )

And so today I did went back to Harbour City and yet again I was held up before leaving the area.

Take if off Nail polish Remover
Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara
L.A  Girl Matte in Plum
L.A Girl Matter in Lilac
Skin food eyeshadow brush
Skin food choco eyebrow powder
Orly  Matte Topcoat

Whew! What can I say? Yes this is  good for me but  not too good for my wallet. hahaha!!!

MAC Lovelorn vs. Chanel Allure Rouge Super

People have been asking me if these two lippies are similar to each other. I'd say yes they are in a way cause they are both lustre pink. But I really cant tell the difference unless I take a swatch of both lippies.

okay so here it is.
With Flash

w/out flash

From top to Bottom
Chanel Rouge Allure Genial
Chanel Rouge Allure Super
MAC Lustering
MAC lovelorn
Question: Is Mac lovelorn comparable to Chanel Rouge Allure Super?

Yes, but there's a little bit of difference aside of course from their respective brands and price. Super is darker pink lustre shade than MAC lovelorn. Super glides easier than Lovelorn which is a little bit sticky on my skin.
If asked if which between the two should I take? I'd go for the Super.
I Love that glide!

I found another Pink Lippie

Yes! As the title of this blog show I'm happy to announce to you that I found another Keeper. The New Revlon Color burst Collection.

I was actually looking for a deep pink lippie to match my pink bag. I first saw Fushia from this collection but sadly it didn't really match my bag. It has more of a blue undertone that makes my lips stand out too much. I think hubby will jump off the window when he sees this on me. hahahaha!

Shanghai Tang Silk Bag

Then I scrolled at the next color which is Carnation. This I can say is a MATCH. The bright pink color is not shocking as I expected. It glides easily without any hassle, It's buildable, no scent at all and non drying. You can play from barely there pink to deep pink lip color color.

Revlon Color Burst in Carnation

nice match isn't it?

Carnation upon application

And the staying powers is really impressive. Whew! What more can you ask for?
here are some of the swatches I made at the store

Really sorry for the crappy pic

Hmmm.... the only downside maybe is the price. It's about Hk$ 98.00 a pop. But never the less I think it is a very good buy.
