I'm officially going back to blogging after going on a hiatus for about a month or so. You see, I've been busy with so many things - traveling, enjoying the summer break with my family, preparing for the opening of classes (i.e. shopping for school stuff, covering books and notebooks), and driving.
Yes, driving! Mum got a new car, and since I haven't held the wheel in years (the last time I drove a car was before my husband and I got married), I took a refresher course at a local driving school and spent a week driving here and there. If you're following me on Instagram, you've probably seen photos of me strapped in the driver seat.
Or you might have seen this photo of the lipsticks that I received from Ever Bilena a few weeks back.
|New lippies! Yay!|
|And they come in a cute case, too!|
"Introducing the ultimate lip color to look out for --- the EB Advance Supreme Lipstick. Drench your kissers in the rich and on-trend shades of this lipstick named after famous beauty icons and unique colors. The EB Advance Supreme Lipstick comes in 6 Matte and 6 Creme shades infused with ingredients that condition the lips, keeping it light but still luscious looking over your lips. A swipe of this is enough to make head turns and create impact at a glance."
Upon opening the package, I was ecstatic to see that Ever Bilena sent me five different shades. But after trying all five, I kinda wished they sent me all. Or at least, all the six Creme shades - because I totally fell in love with the formulation at first swipe. Haha!
|Love the quirky names! :)|
|Shade reference at the bottom of the bullet, as well.|
|Looks like MAC bullets, only they're white.|

Anyway, here are the shades when worn.
What I love:
- Nicely pigmented.
- Fruity scent.
- Twelve shades and two formulations to choose from.
- The creme shades glide like butter on the lips.
- Widely available nationwide (supermarkets, drugstores, convenience stores and such).
- Affordable price at Php 195 each.
What you might not like:
- The matte shades tug a bit and have a tendency to flake on the lips.
- Wear-time is so-so. At least three or four hours on me.
Have you tried these lipsticks before? Which shades are your top picks? :)
