of beach trips and lip stains

Hi girls! I've been MIA for the past few days, we just got back from Nasugbu, Batangas. We stayed at the Canyon Cove Beach Club, and it was great to be able to see all my counterparts since we only get to see each other a few times a year. I was finally able to visit a beach and go swimming after 3 years (yes, I'm so lame, Boracay can be travelled by land from here and there are so many gorgeous beaches that are even nearer but I never took the time to go).

I stayed with my usual room mates/bed mates, C and L.

Hello Jessica Sanchez

Super gorgeous view to wake up to!

Of course, this post wouldn't be complete without beauty chorvas. For this trip, aside from the quintessential sunblock, my 2nd favorite beauty product is Etude House's Dear Darling Lip Tint in 03. 03 is an orange-based red that looks really nice and natural whether you're on land or swimming in the waters. 

What I Like:
  • Great staying power. After eating and swimming, it still stayed on 
  • Easy to apply and goes on evenly
  • Very pigmented
  • Non-drying
  • Mild, fruity scent
  • No weird taste
  • Comes in 3 shades, so you can pick one that matches your skin tone best
  • Cute packaging

What I don't like:

How to Use:
 Swipe on your lips and spread. For cheeks, start with 3 small dots first (since it's pigmented, try building up the color gradually until you get desired color to avoid clown-red cheeks) and blend out to get a healthy, flushed look

Where To Get:
Etude House, for Php198

Would I repurchase?

How about you? What's your favorite lip/cheek stain? Drop me a line! :)
