Review: Sophie j'adore lipsticks

Hi lovelies! Here is a review of Sophie's j'adore lipstick. I have three of these: summer pink, ice pink and russian red.

Swatching time! (Please excuse my ugly lips. LOL)

ice pink

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM: russian red, ice pink and summer pink

I've been using these babies for several months now and here are thoughts.

  • super affordable! only costs Php 79
  • a good matte lipstick
  • not drying
  • good pigmentation, reminds me of NYX Round Lipsticks but I can't still compare side by side since I don't have one but the colors are similar. Don't you think so?
  • lasts up to 6 hours
  • may be hard to find since it's not available in your local malls. you have to contact your Sophie dealer to by these or you can see them here
  • the etchings on the packaging wears off after 2 weeks. see photo below
Will I re-purchase? hell yeah! awesome product for the price and I can't complain! they've been my go to lipsticks for several months now. I highly recommend this lipsticks!

Till next time!

Hugs and kisses,


NOTW: rainbow polka dots french tip

Hi there lovelies! I'm back after a year of being MIA. I have returned with a nail art tutorial. This is my first so please excuse my errors LOL. This NOTW was inspired by my favorite nail blogger thiamere. I bought a dotter because of her. :) 

I really love nail polishes! It all started when I was thirteen. My mom finally allowed me to wear nail polishes and I bought my first nail kit as well.

Enough with the story telling! here's the tutorial :P

Start by applying your base color. I used a pinkish nude but you can use any color you want. The colorful the better, right?

Here's the fun part, the tips! You can use a dotter tool just like I did but if you don't have one you can use a tooth pick and achieve the same effect. Just dot the insides of your tip. :)

Start with the most vibrant color you have so that it will be easier for you to contrast your multi-colored dots. I started with this pinkish red color and with this turquoise color.

Just dot away with your beautiful colors! Go crazy just like I did. You can add as many colors as you want. The more colorful the dots, the better! :) Sorry for I do not have pictures of my nails while doing dots. Dotting is so much fun that I completely forgot! silly me :P

Enjoy your beautiful nails just like you :)

Hugs and kisses,
