I took a little break from my blog because I was completing my Capstone for school. Afterwards, I was exhausted from the late nights of writing a 20 page paper, but am so happy that it is done and final grades have posted, so I am officially done with classes. Woo Hooo!
However, on to more exciting things. I have purchases to share. Whenever the summer is winding down, I begin to look for closed toe shoes for the fall. As you all may know, summer is my favorite season and I love wearing sandals. Closed toe shoes are not my favorites to search for but I saw some leopard print beauties at Aldo’s recently and had to buy them. They are very cute and very comfortable. They have a lot of cushion in the bottom, and are really flexible. There were multiple colors, so I am contemplating purchasing another pair in a different color.
The sandals may be very recognizable. Lane Bryant had these in black and animal print all summer long, but I passed on buying them. The gold embellishments are actually plastic which I really didn’t love, but they went on clearance in the last few weeks, so I decided to go ahead and get the black pair. Lane Bryant only have wide shoes, so they are a little big for me, but I have been enjoying wearing them. They were a good, clearance buy.
I purchased my first Deborah Lippmann nail polish and I love it! It is called Boom Boom Pow. It’s a glitter polish, but it does not give a textured feel on the nails which I absolutely love. The Butter London polish in the picture with it is not a new purchase, but these two polished have been what I have been wearing on my nails for the entire month of August. They are beautiful together. The Butter London polish is called Tea with the queen. This is a beautiful pairing.
Mac released a new collection this week called, A Novel Romance. Now, I love romance books so this was a collection after my own little heart. I needed something from it just because they ad looks like a cover of a historical romance book. 😀 I only purchased one thing which is the lipstick, Lingering Kiss. It is definitely a fall shade for me. It’s a very deep wine color, and also a matte finish which is my favorite. I also purchased a regular line item, which is the lipstick, Cherish. I’m still on the fence about whether I like the color on me. I can definitely make it work with lip liner, but I’m not sure it’s the right fit for my skin tone.
Speaking of lip liners, I went in Sephora during their all about lips campaign. I tried on a pretty purple lipstick which was paired with the OCC Lip liner in Hoochie. Yes…Hoochie is the name. I thought that was pretty funny. I already have so many purple lip sticks, but no lip liners, so I did go ahead and purchase that since it would look beautiful with my Up the Amp or Heroine lipsticks.
Finally, I purchased a Nars Concealer. Most of the summer, I have not been wearing foundation, but I needed something to cover up a few spots that developed on my face. I bought the Radiant creamy concealer in Cafe. The color is a perfect match for my skin and covers up the dark spots really well. I have been carrying this in my purse this past month and just dabbing it on when I need it. I am enjoying it.
Talk to you all soon.
great haul! xx
You’re really brave trying that deep colour lipstick! I bet it will look beautiful in the autumn and winter. x
I think so too. It’s a very different color than anything I currently have.
It’s really gorgeous though! Great post by the way x
