How to make your own Pink Lipgloss

I've been wanting to buy a Mac Lady Gaga Lipglass but haven't bought one then one day I thought I have a pink lipstick, a clear lipgloss and a lipbalm. I've been using the Maybelline lipbalm for more than a month and I love the result of smooth lips so I thought I'll make my own pink lipgloss! So, here are the items I used to make the lipgloss:

- Maybelline Baby Lips Pink Glow in Baby Pink (lipbalm)
- Maybelline Fruity Jelly in Pink Grape (lipgloss)
- Sophie Paris J'adore Lipstick in Summer Pink

What I did was I get a 1/4 part of the lipstick, 1/4-1/2 part of the lipgloss and 1/2 of the lipbalm. You can mix your own til you get the shade you like.

I used the Baby Lips Pink Glow so that I'll get a tint of pink just like the Etude House Tint Chou. I used the Fruity Jelly in Pink Grape because it matches the shade I want and it has shimmers. I've been wanting to use the Etude House Tint Chou but I don't like how it taste like petroleum that's why I thought of making this lipgloss. Anyways, if you know a lipgloss like Etude House Tint Chou from other brands please let me know!

So, back to the topic...

Mix the items in a small microwaveable cup to melt it and to get rid of chunks. Then when it's all melted mix it to make sure it's even then transfer it in a lipgloss container!

So, that's it! Please see below for the result of my lip gloss...

Hope you like it! And please let me know how yours turned out. Thanks!

Avon Clearskin Blemish Rescue Instant Spot Corrector

Description: Formulated with the maximum level of Salicylic Acid and Fast Clear Technology to work fast. This acne treatment helps reduce redness and swelling in just 3hrs.

*Acne control contains Salicylic Acid 2.0%

Price: P99/15ml

What I can say about this...well I can't really see the difference. I don't see that it reduce swelling and redness in just 3hrs and even a day. I don't know if this is the cause of my breakouts or the other 2 Avon Clearskin I used but I decided to stop because breakouts just keep popping up everyday and I hate it! It's supposed to clear up my skin. I don't know if this is purging but i'm not gonna take the risk an get more pimples. I'd rather go to the derma just to be sure than let my face breakout and regret. I've already had good skin before using this and I just wanted to clear up the big painful blemishes that I had. So, can't say if it's a big mistake but I'll stop using this and go back to just using the Clinique 3-step skincare. Hope my skin gets better.

Will I repurchase: Definitely not. Sorry!

Do I recommend: Nope. If it didn't work for me I wouldn't want you to take the risk and get the same result as I did.

Note: I just realized as I was checking my blemishes that the areas where the blemishes popup are the areas where I put this so I guess this was causing my blemishes. :(

Avon Clearskin Blemish Rescue Instant Care

Description: This lightweight liquid is formulated with the maximum level of salicylic acid and works synergistically with Fast Clear Technology to help clear acne. It helps reduce the look of blemish redness making acne blemishes look less noticeable in just one day. Clear up your skin and regain your confidence.

Visibly reduces redness and swelling after just 1 day. In just 3 days, leaves skin looking virtually blemish-free.

*Acne control contains Salicylic Acid 2.0%

Price: 139/15ml

What I can say about this product is that I like using this product. It has a gel consistency and I apply it on my whole face after the toner and my face feels smooth and tight but not very tight. Just feels like my pores are closed so it won't produce more oil. I've been using this for 4days now and I'm sticking with it until it's empty.

Will I repurchase: Yes!

Do I recommend: Yes! Especially to those who have oily skin.

Avon Clearskin Oil-Free Balancing Lotion

I've been thinking and figuring out how to control my oily face but I'm on a tight budget and I've been wanting to buy the Clinique Step 3: Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel so when I found out that there's affordable products at Avon from the Clearskin line I went to buy this oil-free lotion that's almost like the DDMGel from Clinique.

What: Avon Clearskin Oil-Free Balancing Lotion

*Active Ingredient: Salicylic Acid 0.5%

Description on the bottle: Effective Oil-free Balancing light-weight Lotion, with Blemish Busting Technology, helps to visibly reduce the appearance of redness and blemish size. Controls excess oil and shine, providing light hydration for clear, healthy skin, all day.

Price: P189/50ml

What I can say about it is that at first use I felt it controlled my oily face but I think it's too drying so I use it after I put the Clearskin Blemish Rescue Instant Care. I'll review it separately. Anyways, so when I use this lotion it feels smooth and supple. I think it also controls the redness after applying my Clinique Clarifying Toner #3. I've been using this for 4 days and I can say I like it as it controls my oily face. 😊

Will I repurchase: Yes, if I'm not yet able to buy the Clinique Step3.Hehe!😉

Do I reccomend: Yes, it's very affordable and I recommend it to people with oily skin.

Mascara Test: Look like your're wearing False Lashes

So, I want to look like I have false lashes but don't want to wear false lashes and after searching on youtube for tutorials I've found that you can get the result by using 2 different mascaras. But I only have 2 differet mascaras which is from Maybelline: Volum' Express Turbo Boost and Clinique High Definition Lashes. And below is the result! :)

Sophie Paris Koshize Satinlips in Fierce Coral and RadiantFuchsia

Hi all!

So, I just got my order from Sophie! 2 lipsticks from their new line the Satinlips. Ofcourse I'm excited to try asap! Well, for the color I expected the Fierce Coral to be "FIERCE" but as it turned out it's like soft coral but it's okay. But it's like I got another Summer Pink shade. Oh well I almost used up my S.P. lipstick so it's ok I have backup. Anyways, as for the Radiant Fuchsia it is radiant as it said like orchid I guess. For the finish I can say it is like satin goes on smoothly, not sticky or creamy, it's matte, and doesn't feel like you have lipstick on. It's just perfect! But it smells like Chinese/Japanese face cream like "mena?". I'm not sure what it's called but I hope you get what I'm talking about. Anyways, I like it. Haven't tested it staying power but for the darker colors from Sophie J'adore Lipstick I can say the lipstick stains even if you wipe it off and the Radiant Fuchsia is the same.

Price: P240.00

Will I repurchase? Maybe (coz I like to try different lipsticks and shades and I've got a collection of Sophie lipsticks)

Do I recommend this? Yes! It's also affordable!

So, below is the swatch. Hope you like it!
