Lipbalm, Lipgloss & Lipstick

Lipbalms (followed with an "S")! 'coz it's not just One, not even Two... But bunches of lipbalms to share. ;p

I love lipbalms than lipsticks and lipgloss. Hay nako! kng mahilig lang ako mgtabi ng mga empty case ng lipbalms for sure... sasabihan nyo akong "lipbalm adik". I start using lipbalm when i was in grade 3. maniniwala k???

actually nde lipbalm ang uso noon, hahaha! "petroleum jelly"! our pedia recommend me to use petroleum jelly for my lips kz ngsusugat at super dry tlga... it's bcoz nde ako palainom ng water. 'till nde n ko maka-alis ng wlng dalang petroleum jelly. when i start collecting fashion magazines for teens like seventeen, candymag, pink, etc. I find out n meron plng Vaseline tube for lips, hayun na! pa-start na ko! My aunt abroad ask me what pasalubong i want pguwi nya ng pinas. I make her a joke, i said: something that will heal my lips from drying too much... like petroleum jelly that I always use and bunches of chocolates will make me happy. hahaha! then nung umuwi ng pinas aunt ko she bought me smith's rosebuds salve 3pcs and nothing less... the chocolates! ;p daming purpose nun as in i can't go out not bringing my smith with me... nung maubos ko lhat ung 3pcs, narealize ko na wla nun d2 sa pinas. pero infairness ang 3pcs inabot sakin ng one and half years, hehehe! nwyz, halos lhat n ata ng drugstore nationwide tinanungan ko na, haaaaaay! wla dw ganun... then i look to a magazine, nakakita ko ng chapstick lipbalm i try it on super ganda sa lips... then start experimenting and trying another lipbalms that will work for me and another and another and lots more! even lipgloss ni-try ko din... then, yun na! dun n ko totally naging adik sa mga lipbalms. ^_^

Let's go on lipsticks. when was the first time i wear lipstick? mmm... when i was in grade 6, hahaha! LOL! A class nomination for Miss Beauty and Brain challenge. Surprisingly I won the 2nd place. who won the 1st place? it was our valedictorian who's been nominated from the other section, hehe! but being in the 2nd place is a good experience winning a pageant, hahaha. ;p

Anyways, when i was in college i only use one shade... "Red"
