Make perfect summer happen with Maybelline New York

It definitely is summer in this part of the world which means lightweight skin-enhancing makeup and playful lips. After all, summer calls for lots of color! And long-wearing-slash-waterproof color at that. 

This box from Maybelline arrived while I was in Tablas Island, now let me reveal the contents to you.

For a naturally matte (but non-heavy and non-greasy) base, check out the Dream Satin Skin Liquid Foundation (Php 499), Dream Satin Two-Wake Cake (Php 399). Both give sheer to medium coverage and do come off light initially (I assume because of the added SPF 24), but usually settle in after a couple of minutes.

Ahh these Vivid Matte Lipsticks (Php 299) are a steal! They're super pigmented, considerably long-wearing, and feel comfy on lips. I dare say, Maybelline is winning in the mattes area as I am such a fan of Touch of Spice (from the Creamy Mattes Collection) that this cult-fave lippie deserves its own blog post -- soon!

And the bullet, can we take a moment to acknowledge how beautiful this matte casing is?

Also part of the kit is the HyperSharp Power Black Eye Liner (Php 299) which features a super fine tip and is also touted to be waterproof. Will blog about this separately also.

Lastly, I super loved the Sunnies by Charlie pair that they included in the kit which I wear non-stop every day:
