It’s now officially spring but it sure doesn’t feel or look like it. There’s snow still on the ground, and the temperature is just too dang cold still for my liking. It’s putting a serious crimp in my blogging abilities as a result. This mama has had enough with the Polar Vortex.
I’ve been distracting myself with a lot of shopping (clothes shopping), blog reading, and makeup organizing. I am on a mission to pare down my collection to just the items that I love — I need to stop feeling the need to
hoard collect so much. I reach for certain products most of the time so I really don’t need to have thirty different lipsticks or blushes of the same colour.
Things that are exciting me lately: orange lipsticks, my lips but better lipsticks paired with gloss, Hourglass Ambient Blushes and NARS Narcissist palette (so glad I caved in and got it!).
That’s it. Hope you have the most excellent week!
I went shopping a few weeks ago, and a blazer caught my attention. It caught my attention because I thought, hey I have the perfect lipstick to wear with that. Lipstick junkie or what? Who does that?!
This weekend, I kind of geeked out. My fam and I went to ComiCon Toronto, and I also geeked out over some new makeup. Of course. To attend ComiCon, I bypassed lipstick (gasp!) and went the gloss route for once, deciding to test drive one of MAC’s new Mineralize Glass lip glosses. These new glosses just launched last week.
Simple and sophisticated are two goals I try to achieve with any makeup look. There are a few new-ish products that have entered my makeup rotation that have helped me to achieve these goals.
Ever have one of those where you think, “yah, that’s right. I’m rockin’ it today.” I’m kidding. Well, okay, sort of. I have to admit I felt quite good on this day — thanks to Rimmel’s Colour Rush Balm and Hourglass Ambient blush. This combination of bright pinks did wonders for the winter blahs I’ve been feeling. Putting on such bright colours added life to my face, and somewhat uplifted my soul. Yes, makeup can do that for me.
