Did you know that the first people who wore lipstick were the Mesopotamian women? They grind precious gems and use their dust to decorate their lips? source. Since then, the idea of applying something on the lips was considered in almost every civilization, either as a form of marking or an ornament. Eventually, the very first commercial lipstick product was invented more than a century ago, somewhere around the year 1800.
Lipsticks. It’s my thaaaaang (yes, slaaaaaang talaga dapat). I am one who likes lipstick A LOT. Heehee.
It’s the one thing I always have in my bag (except my gym bag that is) and I always have at least 2-3 tubes of different shades just in case I feel the need to change lip color midway through the day. 😉
For a lipstick lover, when you get invited to a lipstick festival by one of the leading super malls in the metro, you don’t think twice. You go and you put on your best lipstick!
Last July 22, I went to SM Makati to celebrate Lipstick Festival with my fellow beauty addicts.
Pop-art of lips, giant lipsticks and lip glosses surrounded the activity area of the SM Beauty.
So nice to see one of my friends from ages ago, Jef Gaitan, who is also a fellow lipstick lover.
We also got to sample some lipsticks during the event!
Lip-smacking good chocolates and cookies all lip-colored for the guests.
As if the bright & bold lipsticks aren’t enough, these hunks celebrated along with us. A game was also held where chosen guests got to put their lip mark on the shirts of these gents. The group with the most lipstick mark wins.
According to my fellow bloggers who participated the game, it was a challenging game daw since they needed to concentrate on winning. Heehee.

We didn’t plan our outfits! We just like dressing in black and white. Heehee. Here I was with Janeena Chan, Jef Gaitan and IC Mendoza.
Can you see the happiness in my face?! 😀
