Baggin’ the Balmain
Remember when we spilled about the L’Oreal x Balmain lippies coming out and how everyone couldn’t wait to get their hands on the gorgeously packaged lipsticks? Well, despite the hype dying down, the desire for these lipsticks are still very high! Which is why this writer’s heart leapt with joy when Zalora decided to stock these bad boys in their Beauty section! At just P499 a lippie, the Balmain lipsticks are now just a click away from being part of your makeup bag. And if you’re feeling really spendy, Zalora also carries the Exclusive Coffret Box (P5,988) which contains all 12 lipsticks! The lipsticks are super pigmented and infused with camellia oil, making them hydrating and easy to put on. Not going to lie: I already bought tubes of Domination (true red) and Confession (brown mauve), and planning to get Freedom (purple) and Rebellion (blue)! Shop the L’Oreal x Balmain lipsticks here.
