FOTD: Movie Date in NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm

Hello Beauty Lovers,

I'm here again with yet another Face of the Day.

Last Sunday, the BF and I watched the Rise of the Planet of the Apes. We've been eager to catch this flick since we are both a fan of the it's predecessor, Planet of Apes. We wanted to know if its any good. Of course effects-wise, Rise of the Planet of the Apes exceeded our expectation. But I can't take that much animal cruelty. Unfortunately, its a fact that many animals suffer from people who refuse to think of them as an important part of the ecosystem. I hated how they depicted animal experiments but I guess, it needed to be shown if only to bring awareness. The film was just painful and I didn't fault them for avenging their kind. Nevertheless, I'm excited for the next installment and hope it shown soon here in the PH.

R and I also tried this new Asian bistro at Shangri-la called, Lemongrass. They serve one of my favorites, Thai Milk Tea. The food was so-so but nothing really that I would be eager to come back for.

Of course, date night is always a good excuse to prettify myself up for the love of my life. It's not only for events that I try to look good for. Being together for 6 years with the guy who puts up with all my idiosyncrasies deserves a lady who never lets herself go. So even if I know he loves me with no makeup, bilbil (belly fats) and all, I wanted to look my best when we go out on dates.

I used a few of my favorite makeup products for this look.

For the face:
Shu Uemura Face Architect Sheer Refining Mousse Foundation in 5YR-M Rich Sand
Ellana Minerals Intensive Foundation in Hazelnut Latte (to cover up the scars from my warts removal procedure)
NARS Blush in Orgasm (my ultimate favorite peach-pink blush!)
The Body Shop Bronzing Powder in 03 (from the Honey Bronze Collection)

Fanny Serrano Gel Liner
Maybelline Lash Extreme Stiletto Mascara
ModelCo Designer Browz in Medium

For the lips:
EOS Refreshing Lip Balm in Passion Fruit (to prep my lips with and then blot before applying color)

Here's a swatch of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm. It's really a nice pretty peach lipstick with hint of pinkness to it.

Hope you guys have a great day ahead of you! :) I'll be seeing the beauty blogger friends tonight! Excited to spend time with them on ladies' night!

How about you? How will you spend your humpy Wednesday? :)
