Beauty Chat : How many lip products do you keep in your handbag?


I typically keep 2-3 lip products in my handbag. I keep at least 1 lip balm, 1 neutral color (a pinky brown shade that can be worn anywhere) and the lip color I’m wearing that day for touch-ups. I used to carry much more but I’ve narrowed it down to only the products I really need and it saves up a lot of space!

Top 5 Summer Beauty Essentials



1. Colored Liner

A swipe of turquoise blue or forest green instant lights up the eyes and is super easy to incorporate in your look too. I love adding a dash of color to the waterline and lower lash line to brighten up eyes on balmy summer days. Maybelline has a beautiful range of colored kohls that make flaunting bright liner easily affordable. My personal favorite is the shade Turquoise which looks beautiful on brown eyes.


2. Tinted Lip Balm

There are always days when you don’t feel like wearing much makeup when it’s sweltering outside. But a tinted lip balm in a sheer, bright color in a great way to add some moisture (the heat dehydrates the lips too) and a little color to the face without looking made up. I’ve been reaching for the Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Pop in Berry Bomb these days. The fruity flavor is refreshing and the sheer berry tint looks very flattering and natural on the lips. Pink Shock is also a great pick if you want a deeper tint of pink.

Fun Saturdays Vol. 41 : 5 Random Things


1. Your favorite past time as a child?


Reading! I don’t recall how early I started but by 4th-5th standard, I was hooked to Enid Blyton‘s Secret Seven and Malory Towers. I loved reading Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden as well. I would actually get my classmates who weren’t interested in reading to issue books I wanted from the school library (because everyone had to issue 1 book every week) so that I had more than 1 book to read every week!

What beauty essentials do you carry in your handbag?


[note color=”#FFE4C4″]My MUST-HAVES are dry tissues, comb, compact powder, lip balm and a gloss or tinted balm.

Right now I have Lakme Lip Love conditioner in Siren and Revlon Colorburst Lip butter in Cherry Tart in my purse. Apart from these I also carry a small tube of lotion/handcream. These are my basics which I always have and which I never take out from my bag. I also carry a few perfume samples but I’ve never ever used them 😛
