If there’s one beauty product that I can purchase in an impulse, it’s definitely a lipstick. Whether the price tag is lucrative or an affordable one, I wouldn’t let a chance pass by without picking the shade that caught my fancy most especially when it’s limited edition. I can still vividly remember the moment when I bribed the SA of a make up brand to reserve me my desired tubes of lipsticks when they came out with a Betty and Veronica collection. Yes, I’m that kind of crazy for lipsticks!
As of this day, numerous tubes of unopened and unused lipsticks from luxurious to drugstore brands are on my stash. But, as the saying goes, a girl can never have too many lipsticks. And, yes it’s so true! I can relate and attest to that. The lipstick junkie in me is always desiring for more. That’s why I almost screamed and jumped for joy when I received an invite to attend the 2nd SM Lipstick Fest Celebration. God knows how much I wanted to be part of the first one…
Following the huge success of its 1st lipstick fest, SM Beauty brings the 2nd SM Lipstick Festival which will run from July 29 until September 28, 2016. The event kicked off last July 29 at the SM Beauty section of SM Makati coinciding with the celebration of the International Lipstick Day. Select influencers and media guests were treated to a shopping spree plus they got to be part of these exciting activities – free make-over and lip art services, lip-shaped Pouf cotton candy, and more!
Upon entrance, we were handed a beauty passport. We had to visit the numerous stations (brands) listed inside the passport. I drooled over the listed brands. Hahah! Most of which are my faves… A certain task has to be done so as to get a special gift.
For my first stop, I visited the make-up brand Catrice. Way back, I bought a matte liquid foundation from them but, forgot to use or even swatch it after purchase. I asked the sales associate to pick the best products from these brands – Catrice, Deborah, Flormar and Essence. She swore by these products ladies! So I suggest you take note of this photo and grab these as soon as you visit SM. These are affordable yet of good quality brands. Don’t forget to check them out!
Kiss the Lip Love Canvass

The free makeover and lip-art area. Here all shoppers will learn to appreciate the many wonders of lipstick. Take note, these services will be available this month.
I’ve got a free lip-shaped Pouf cotton candy which I abused as props on my photos and munched up to the last bite.
During that day, Maybelline and NYX offered 50% discounts on all their lipstick products. Fret not, because they still have ongoing promos and discounts up to September 28, 2016.
To all those lipstick junkies like me or those who want to discover the wonders of lipstick, I highly suggest for you to visit the SM Beauty Section in SM Makati as this place is indeed a make-up haven where you can find not only the drugstore brands but also luxurious brands like Shu Uemura, Clinique, MAC, and Origins to name just a few.
