With all the drama going on in my life, I almost forgot one of my favorite days to blog. National Lipstick day is on July 29th. As with tradition, here is a photo of one of my current favorites. This is the Just Add Romance velvetease lip pencil by MAC. I picked this up in a sale about a month ago and I am loving it.
Since it has been getting colder here in Georgia, I have been in need of a few more long sleeved shirts. I purchased a shirt from Torrid that is a long sleeve v-neck with hearts all over it. I also purchased a long sleeved shirt that is a similar material to a thin sweatshirt from Lane Bryant. This one has shiny snowflake-like designs all over it. I raced around to 4 stores to find this one in my size as it went on clearance very quickly. Ironically, I found a similar one as I was dashing around town at Dress Barn that was made of a thinner material and a darker gray color. I already wore that one, so forgot to take a picture but I will put a link below if I can find one.
Of course, no month would be complete without a few beauty buys so I did get a few new lip colors at the Sephora VIB event. I purchased another Matte creme lip crayon from Bite Beauty in the color Aubergine. This was actually the color that I wanted when I purchased the color cognac which was mentioned in one of my previous posts, however the Sephora that I was at was out of that color at the time. A Kat Von D lipstick also made its way into my shopping basket. I got Studded Kiss lipstick rouge a levres in the color prayer. This color is beautiful and since matte’s are my favorite formula for lipsticks, so I know I will love it. I also came across a new item from Josie Maran called the Coconut watercolor lip stain. I got the color Coral Oasis. I really love it! It has a lip stain on one side, and gloss on the other. This is probably a color more suited for spring/summer but I think it’s beautiful and wore it most of the day yesterday. I also purchased my favorite from Fresh which is the Sugar tinted lip treatment in the color rose. I have been addicted to these for a couple of years. They are so moisturizing, and I like to wear it not only during the day, but at night to keep my lips from getting chapped.
Finally, I have become somewhat addicted to perfume roller balls. I have bought practically every scent by Marc Jacobs. Roller balls seem to be perfect for me since I find that the sprays last forever and I will rarely finish them before getting tired of the scent. I have a few favorites that I will wear forever and never get sick of such as Dior’s Ja’dore, but for the most part…roller balls are the way to go.
Well there you go! A new post that helps me sort out my shopping obsession. I will talk to you all soon!
With the fall season finally here, I have purchased two fall lip colors. Normally in the fall, I have always stuck to reds, but I have been loving two new colors. Mac’s Lingering Kiss (top photo) which is from their A Novel Romance collection and also a new find from Bite Beauty’s new Matte Creme lip crayon in Cognac(bottom photo). I have taken a picture with both colors on and swatched them next to each other. Enjoy!
