Going Red for a Change

I mentioned in a previous post that I'm probably gonna have more time for blogging soon. That's because I recently quit my job in preparation for moving another city.

It's kind of sad: I have lived in the same house all my life (minus a couple of years in college and some time with relatives on vacations)  and I have worked in the same industry for about 5 years now. But I'm not gonna lie, I think it's a great opportunity to try new things.  I love my job and I think I'm pretty good at it, but I have always wondered what else is out there for me. 

Maybe I'll go to business school. I could sign up for a VeritasPrep gmat prep  course first and see if it's for me. This course is taught by only the finest instructors and not only guarantees a great score but gives you the knowledge and the tools which are necessary for success in getting your MBA. Hey, anything worth doing is worth doing well.

We'll see. That's just one of the possibilities, anyway..

Here's another bold move (for me at least, because if you've been reading my previous post, you'll know how much love I have for pink lippies.):  I got my first red lipstick: Ever Bilena Matte in Love That Red
 

 
 
I've had red glosses and tints before but never lipstick. I just didn't think I had the moxie to pull it off. I have always liked it on another people. It makes people look stylish even when they're just wearing jeans and a t-shirt.

These normally cost PHP 145  at EB counters but thanks to their Show Your Lipstick promo (you just need to show the SA any lipstick that you have with you, Part of market research, I guess) I only paid PHP 120.
What I Like:
-  affordable at PHP 120- PHP 145
- widely available
- pigmented and I love the color
- no weird smell or taste
- glides on smoothly and non-drying.

What I don't like:
- wish they'd have more colors.

ETC.
- I think the formulation of this color is better than other EB Matte lippies I have.  The other ones were kind of drying and not as creamy.

Swatches:
without flash
with flash
on lips


Thanks for reading
