Day 2: First Lipstick
20-Day Lipstick Challenge

I seriously can’t remember what my first lipstick was, so I went back to the lipstick tag I wrote in 2012. It turns out that the first “real lipstick” I bought was Ever Bilena Mirrored Mocha.

I consider myself lipstick-crazy back then. Oh, if only 2012 me saw present me — nearly four years later (swimming in 59 lipsticks) — I would get smacked in the head, BY MYSELF. 59 might not be much by lipstick blogger standards, but STILL.

MAC Taupe

Going back. I don’t have Mirrored Mocha anymore and I never repurchased it after it broke. I wish I was already blogging about lipsticks back in 2012 so I can show a few swatches, but the closest to it that I can think of are MAC Taupe (above) and MUFE Rouge Intense Mat 3.

  1. LOL at “swimming in 59 lipsticks” :D MUFE Mat 3 looks darker on me. Maybe because darker yung complexion ko sa’yo?

    • Ang weird. I would think it would look paler on you. Baka meron kang undertones that make the lipstick darker.

What do you think?
