With so much makeup on hand, I’m often asked how I ever decide on what to wear on a daily basis. Sometimes I take my cue from my outfit. Other times I take my cue from one particular product, while on other days, I take my cue from my mood, i.e. is it a bold lipstick day or a smokey eye kind of day? Today, I was inspired by two products while shopping my stash: MAC’s Craving lipstick and Illamasqua blush in Ambition.
My love affair with lip crayons continues, and the latest to grab my attention is the Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balms. I have a couple in my collection, and I have to say, I think I need to own all of them. Yes, I do. Here’s a look at Tease*, a burnt orange that I think could work on so many skin tones.

Viva Glam 1 was a lipstick I loved for many years. ‘Distracted’ by other lipsticks, I forgot to buy it again when I finished the tube (yes, I have finished a lipstick!).

I am not blessed with long, fluttery eyelashes so I love, love, love the look of falsies. Unfortunately, I haven’t had the best of luck at false lashes. Truth be told, I can’t for the life of me figure out how to apply them. But always up for a challenge, I decided to give the Esqido mink lashes a chance. They look so beautiful, and I thought, why the heck not?
Esqido lashes are made from “the softest and finest naturally shedded mink hairs.” Mink? I had no idea but I have to admit I love the look and feel of these. Check out the Esqido False Lashes I tested out:
