I've been so busy!

Work has taken so much of my time lately ... not that I'm complaining, because I haven't been this busy in months and although my body is still adjusting to the pace, I'm loving every minute of it. For one thing, I'm forced to move and not be a couch potato all the time. That means more time spent outside of the home but it's all good.  Getting off my *ss is something I really really need to do and since my current work really inspires me to move around, I find myself away from my comfort zone (aka home) more often these days.  Being out also means I have time to do the things I haven't done in a while. 

I recently had some time to kill before picking up Sabine from school, so I dropped by Rockwell to check out the bazaar at the tent (sorry, I can't remember the bazaar's name right now).  I dropped by a friend's stall and ended up with a mini lippie loot which made me so happy! 

Left to right : NYX Matte Lipstick in Shocking Pink, NYX Round Lipstick in Louisiana and EOS Lipbalm in Honeysuckle Honeydew. The lipbalm is actually my 2nd because I misplaced the 1st one! Okay, I have a confession to make ... I got the matte lipstick for Anissa but I tried it on and I was so shocked to discover that (all modesty aside) I can rock this really loud color!

I just really love it!!! I love it so much that I used it for 2 days straight after I bought it LOL!

One observation though...

Although it's referred to as a matte lipstick, it isn't as matte as I expected it to be. For me, that's not a bad thing at all. My lips have a tendency to chap when I use matte lipstick, especially if I don't layer it with lipbalm. But NYX's matte lipstick is really perfect, not drying at all. 

I've been going through Digital Traincase's website to see what other shades I can get! At Php 300 a pop, don't you think a girl should get more?
