How to fix your broken lipstick

Living in a humid country, it is sometimes inevitable that lipsticks would melt in heat. It has happened to me several times. But fret not! Cracked lipsticks don't necessarily mean you won't be able to uae them without making a mess! It can be fixed!

what you need:
1. Tissue paper or napkins
2. Alcohol
3. Lighter or match sticks
4. Cotton buds

First, lay down the napkin so if ever your lipstick falls, it will still be clean. Then sanitize your hands because you will be using them.
just use the lighter or match sticks to melt your lipstick and use the cotton bud to align them to
place again.

sorry I forgot before pics. Just thoight about blogging it after I did it because it might help others! 
If your lipstick has totally fallen off, however, you may need to remove the remaining lipstick that is left on the cup or whatever that is called(it will not be sturdy enough if you don't). Then melt the bottom of what has fallen off before you stick it into place again.

This is the finished result:

Not pretty but usable! :)

Hope to help with this post, have a nice monday everyone!

Guerlain Champs Elysees VS. MAC Girl About Town

I recently got a MAC Girl About Town, because.. To be honest, I don't know, I guess I got carried away with the hype - I usually don't get similar shades to my existing collection.
Anyway, I was fixing my stash and I remembered it could be similar to Champ Elysees.

Guerlain Champs Elysees at the bottom

They are more similar in person, but not exact dupes. Champs Elysees obviously has moe red, white GAT is more neon pink. They're similar and one would answer for a lemming of another, but it isn't too much to have both, I think.

Girl About Town is for days when I'm feeling more energetic and fun, and Champs Elysess for a more sophisticated fuschia look!

The New Chanel Rouge Allures in Excentrique, Enjouée, Exaltée, and Palpitante

So I got stills from the video that Chamel released, and used the imfo from Peter Philips on what shades he used, then saw shade descriptions, then solved the puzzle.
Oh my, this is how obsessed I am.
Here is Exaltée:

Here is Excentrique:

Here is Enjouée:

Here is Palpitante:

Pimpante can easily be found in my previous post :)

The New Chanel Rouge Allures!

Looks like I spotted Pimpante from the video ad that Chanel released in prep for the release of these babies! I also spotted what looks like Palpitante but I'm not really attracted to that. So I am going to look out for this shade in particular.

What about you?

Also I am testing out this blogger app for my iPad, which is supposed to make things easier for me. Looks cool so far.

Have a nice evening everyone!

Updated Partial make-Up Collection!

 First of all, sorry for my recent hiatus. It's been years I know, and I've been wanting to go back for a long time into the blogging world, except that I rarely use the PC anymore, and when I do, it is usually just to go into MS Word to make a paper or to edit what I've written on my iPad for my thesis. Yes, very busy with life and all, but enough about that. :)

So lately, I've been destashing and organizing my collection in favor of a more minimalist philosophy when it comes to my makeup collection which means valuing quality over quantity. As a result, I've sold and am selling most of the stuff I no longer use or don't work for me.
The following is now my updated patial collection. Partial because I was too lazy to organize my eye makeup and they're boring anyways. Just a couple quads here and there, few eyeliners, and a couple concealers (My HG concealer is now Missha The Style Undereye Brightening, btw) and a few brow products plus mascaras. Besides I'm not done destashing that part of my collection :D

Enough blabber, onto pics!

My powders! I think that covers all of them (excuse those concealers)
LtoR, TtoB: Ben Nye Banana Visage(HG!), NYC Loose Powder, Chifure Powder Foundation, Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre, Maybelline Oil Control Loose Powder.

My foundations:
LtoR: Estee Lauder Double Wear, Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk, Nars Tinted Moisturizer, and a couple BB creams that I got as GWP's from Estee Lauder. 

Lipsticks! Sorry for the awful quality of this picture, I didn't notice it was this blurry until now. Shaky hands.
I forget the names but I'll try.
LtoR: MUFE Rouge Artist Intense in 46 (I think?), MUFE in 38, MAC Fresh Salmon, MAC Viva Glam Nicki, Burberry Tulip Pink, Chanel magnolia, Chanel genial, Chanel Insolente, YSL Rouge Pur Couture in 01 Le Rouge, YSL Rouge Pur Couture in 27 Fuchsia Innocent. Beside them are my Sophie Martin lippies, and behind are the ones that I'm about to dispose of: Stila in Outrageous, MAC in Behave Yourself, and CG in Enchantress.

Lastly, my blushes, bronzer and highlighter.
LtoR: Chanel Tweed Fuchsia, Chanel Tweed Pink, Chanel JC in Fresque, Burberry Peony,
Soleil tan de Chanel, NARS Deep Throat, Smashbox Soft Lights in Shimmer.

and that's about it. Over all I'm happy that I get to use almost everything now. I thought a nice come back would be a collections post. So there ya go. If you wanna see me review any of these, feel free to comment below with your request and I'll try to follow up as soon as I could.

Still thinking what I should get next. A foundation, another highlighter since I only have one, or another YSL RPC which I'm recently addicted to? I'm also waiting for the Chanel Rouge Allures this August, but it's quite sad that they're being reformulated. I loved the old formula. Anyway, what do you all think?

Have a nice day beauties!
