Since we were all advised to stay at home, those of us who are lucky to work remotely have been wearing pambahay clothes and spending the day without an ounce of makeup on our faces. It's been what? More than two months since we've been in quarantine?
That said, we asked Pinays over at Cosmo Mixers, our fun Facebook group where we talk about anything under the sun, what they're doing with the makeup they own, particularly lip and cheek tints. Scroll down to see if you can relate to their feelings!
Those who have forgotten about it
"I've forgotten that I have a makeup collection, haha!" –Kate Alvarez
"I own a mix of Korean, American, and local. Miss ko na kayo suotin." –Ira Nopuente
"Kilala pa ba ako ng lip tints and lipsticks ko?" –Jen Suguitan
"I miss coloring my face." –Kristel Ann Cruz
And those who still wear them to make themselves feel better
"Yes, I wear lip tint everyday. Most of the time, need natin maging maganda sa pansarili natin para mas gumaan at sumaya pakiramdam natin lalo na ngayon at may kinakaharap tayo." –Chubilita Pudica-Rosario
"I don’t use lip tints as much as I used to since I’ve converted to mousse lipsticks. The ones I did keep are in the shades I gravitate to the most for lip products (aka reds and MLBBs). I still wear makeup (kahit lippie lang) sa bahay 'cos it helps me feel maganda." –Cheska Santiago
"I barely put on makeup these days but when I do, I realize that I use the tint more for my cheeks, LOL." –Lou Ferrer
"I'm part of my company's skeleton staff, and I use tints when going to work to give my skin a nice flush." –Cleo Simbol
"Not lip tints, but I still use my lipsticks from time to time! I use it whenever I want to feel more confident and extra! Sayang din if I don’t use it." –Savy Arroyo
"I use tinted lip balms or lip balms only. I kept all my makeup inside a box while on ECQ. I use balms to allow my lips to heal while I stay at home for a few months. " –Angeli Alacre Baliao
Those who believe that we should get creative with how we use lip tints
"Time to use your tints and lipsticks as blush and eyeshadow!" –Andrea Atienza
"I'm repurposing lippies as blush and I'm stepping up my eyeshadow game!! Para kita even with a face mask. ;)" –Maebel Joaquin
BONUS: The Lip Tint Collection Flex
Of course, we just had to find out what Pinays have in their lip tint collections.
"I have some unopened ones pa na I bought before the ECQ started." –Paula Grace Fermin
"These are some of my faaaaaves. Nothing beats K-beauty brand tints. Some of my faves: I'm Meme, Rom&nd, Innisfree, and Apieu." –Retty Contreras
