Review: Manic Panic Lethal Lipstick in Nosferatu

AHAAAAAAAAAAA! The reviewΒ you’ve all (okay.. maybe just some of you) been waiting for! (Previous review on Daughter of Darkness is HERE.)

I originally swatched this a few days ago (on the 6th, to be more precise) while I was trying to practice my contouring. You’ll see a photo of it later in this post!

Like Daughter of Darkness, this was purchased fromΒ GWYSHOP, a lovely shop that sells mainly cosplay items such as wigs and circle lenses. I can’t really say I’m a regular since I don’t go to cosplay events anymore mainly because I’m miles and regions away here in Dumaguete, but I’ve purchased quite a few items from them. ^^

Nosferatu is a lovely velvet black shade. Velvet, because it has a matte finish! I’ve really been loving matte lips these days and this black lippie has really appealed to me because of its finish!

Yes, I reused the photo from when I received the package– ^^;;

Now, I admit I was pretty apprehensive to try a black lipstick.. but ever since my friend Alexis nudged me in the direction of the dark side (of the lippies), I don’t think I’ve ever really thought of purchasing any lipstick/gloss/shade other than something deep and dark. Purchasing Nosferatu was really stretching my limits – I mean, on what occasion would I wear it? Would I even have the guts or style to wear it outside the house??

Review: Manic Panic Lethal Lipstick in Daughter of Darkness

Yesterday, I woke up early for my 10 a.m. Saturday class, which is Legal Writing. I don’t normally wake up an hour before class but– I wanted to make sure I looked human so I could take nice selcas with the lipstick that I’m reviewing today. πŸ˜€ (But then it turned out that we had no class today – I received the news just as I arrived at school. Guuuuuuh.)

Just in case you missed my first glance post on Manic Panic Lethal Lipsticks, click right HERE!

I purchased this lovely lippie from GWYSHOP, though I believe Rainbow Head sells them for around Php50 cheaper.

Daughter of Darkness is a deep oxblood colour with a matte finish. I’ve never worn dark lips outside the comforts of my room, so it was really exciting to go out wearing such a bold shade.

In the Mail: Manic Panic Lethal Lipsticks in Daughter of Darkness and Nosferatu

First post of 2015, woo!

I apologize to my readers for the long delay in posting. It feels like months since my last post. I’ve been swamped with law school, and I chose to spend my holiday vacation bonding with my family and catching up with my friends (especially if we’re friends on Facebook or connected via Instagram). Also, when I returned to Dumaguete on the 5th, I found out the next day that I was in the early stages of chickenpox, which meant 2 more weeks out of school spent in a super-sedentary lifestyle because I couldn’t even take a few steps without groaning in pain from the high blood pressure. I need to lose weight, too–

ANYWAY! This first post of the year is about my first big purchase of 2015 –  Manic Panic lipsticks!

I’ve always known about Manic Panic hair dyes, because my friends use it and I’ve also seen a lot of bloggers and celebrities use it to dye their hair all rainbow-brite. Hopefully this summer I’ll get a chance to dye even just part of my hair with it! (I’ve already contracted my friend Gax to dye for me. Muhahahaha!) Then I found out they had a cosmetics line and I just HAD to browse through their site, after which I browsed through some local online sellers for availability.

I purchased mine from GWYSHOP, whom some of you may have seen manning a booth with a couple other sellers during cosplay events. I’ve actually bought a few things from them such as NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams and contact lenses, but this is my first online purchase from them.

Because I currently reside in a dormitory in Dumaguete City, it’s not very easy to get things sent to me. I usually opt to get items picked up at a nearby courier branch, most likely LBC since it’s the nearest one I know, not to mention there’s so many branches in Manila so it’s easier for the sender to send it to me through branch pickup. (Am I making sense..?)

Compared to the LBC and FasTrack wrappers, the sent items are actually quite small. γ…‹γ…‹γ…‹γ…‹

If you’ve known me for a while, you’ll know that I love love LOVE receiving things in the mail, whether it’s a package containing a photobook or an album, or an order from an online shop, or even snail mail like postcards and letters. So of course, when I receive something I tend to go snap-happy and take photos of it!

Let’s take a glance at the packaging first, shall we?
