Hello everyone! I am back from my stint at the hospital. What an experience that was. All is well that ends well (insert Sia: Reaper). So, I am back in full swing (hopefully).
Spring is pretty warm from where I am. Most of the time, I find myself overloading on sunscreen because the heat can be too much, and my forehead is getting burned. So, please, don’t forget to apply your favorite sunscreen around this time.
The pandemic has eased some of the restrictions here. I walk around maskless, but I wear my mask indoors. I got my full shots, and most people I know had been vaccinated as well. Yet, somehow, people are still wary of the virus, and it is going to take some time to fully get back to normal, especially mentally.
I am starting to wear some full-face makeup again. I did not realize how much I miss it until I started testing this Pat McGrath Divine Rose Quad. Which, by the way, is such a beautiful quad filled with beautiful Spring-ready shades. I was kind of hesitant to try it at first, because it may not look good on my skintone, but it ended up working really well. It did not make me look like I had an allergic reaction, lol.
Luxe Quad: in Eternal Eden – The quad feels so creamy, and you can create several looks with it. I really like the Earthy Delight shade (brownish mauve, bottom left) because it is perfect for contouring the eye socket. The shimmery shades are so fine, and there is no fallout. The matte pink and peachy shades are not very in-your-face kind of shades. So, anybody at any age can wear them. I wear these eyeshadows without any primer, and they stay on my lids for a long time.
LiquiLUST: I like this liquid lipstick a lot. The shade may be a bit too rosy for me, but it complements my skintone very well. It does emphasize the lip lines, but it does not feel very dry. And, of course, no amount of transfer happened.
MatteTrance: This is supposed to be the matte lipstick version of the same divine rose shade above. However, I am astonished by the shade of this lipstick. I look like I’ve been semi-embalmed in this shade (knock on wood, lol). The color just looks totally different from being rosy. It looks more nude, and it made me look washed out. I do like the comfortable matte texture, though.
LiquiLUST: This liquid lipstick’s shade looks more like the Divine Rose in MatteTrance. Still too washed out and too nude for me. This shade would be ideal for those with fair to light skintones.
Overall, I like this PMG Divine Rose collection, even though two of the lipstick shades do not match my skintone very well. The quad got me sold, and I highly recommend it.
Until next time, darlings. Take good care.
