Hey guys happy weekend! I've been remiss in blogging duties this week. I did need the break to sort out my daily schedule because I was not getting enough sleep. When insomnia kicks in, there's really nothing stopping it. I sure miss getting up at 7 in the morning and doing yoga but it's been a couple of weeks since I've done that. Major sigh. :( Maybe someday a sleep drug can be invented so I could just pop a pill and get 8 hours of sleep instantly. Wouldn't that be amazing?!

High tales aside, for this lazy Saturday morning I want to share with you a lipstick from 3CE. I've reviewed their primer a few weeks back and this lipstick was part of the same Luxola haul. I got this on a big discount, only less than Php 300 (retail price is around Php 1000).

101 Coco can be described as a peachy nude. The color is similar to Velvet Teddy in its nude-ness, with hints of brown added instead of pink. I think this would suit those with warm, yellow undertones in their skin.

Formula/Texture: It's very emollient and soft so it glided across my skin effortlessly. It has a satin finish so this looked a bit shiny when first applied but the shininess disappeared once it was absorbed by my skin.

The first swatch on my hands looks a bit sheer but it's not. The color applied really opaque despite the light shade. It felt very light and comfortable on my lips. On top of the great formula, this lipstick was also quite moisturizing and I didn't feel the usual parchedness that is inherent to the matte lippies that I usually wear. I haven't realized it then, but this is a new, welcome feeling.

*Somehow, the color turned out to be more pink in my lip swatches than in real life. I had a hard time capturing the actual shade in natural lighting. You can refer to the FOTD photos (seen below) for a more accurate representation of the shade.

Overall: 3CE Lip Color in 101 Coco comes packaged in a sophisticated, well-made and unique packaging that you won't be embarrassed to whip out in public. I had few expectations from this lipstick so I was pleasantly surprised by how great it is. I love it for the highly opaque pigmentation (despite being a light shade), lightweight texture, smooth and even formula and longevity.
