This weekend I went shopping at Macy's and found some good sales! This top with a bow in the back is a style I've been looking for forever, so I got one in black and white as well. It was only $11 which is a steal in my opinion.
The lipstick I'm wearing is Maybelline Colorsensational in Red Revival. Its my favorite red lipstick because its very moisturizing, opaque, long-lasting, makes my teeth look whiter, and I have a weird obsession with the way it smells... anyway I highly recommend it.
Today I am wearing my new Revlon ColorBurst matte balm in Shameless. For a balm this product has great lasting power! The color goes on fairly evenly and is opaque.
At first I wore the balm with a liner and a sheer balm underneath, but I liked it much better on its own. One thing to be sure of is to exfoliate well as the product clings to chapped lips a bit. However, I have heard so many people raving over these and I definitely see why.
What other shades would you recommend in the matte balms or the lacquer balms?
WOW I can't believe it's been seven months since I've made a blog post. Obviously that's far too long to be away, I've just had so much going on. Since June I've been seriously lacking in motivation to blog including writing, reading, anything really.
Just to give a snapshot of the past half-year, I have: moved twice, ended a relationship, started a new (healthy) relationship, reconnected with old friends, made new friends, completed my 11th quarter of college, had some adventures, and enjoyed many nights on the couch with Netflix. It's been a time of adjustment and also too much fun to focus on much else :)
Around the time I left off blogging last year I updated my makeup storage and bought a vanity which I was so excited about and have been loving ever since. It's not anything extraordinary but it works for me and I honestly love it. Fixing my makeup and hair is my favorite part of the morning!
I took this picture at night with just the overhead light in my bedroom which is not great. I also don't have an editing program so really the quality of picture you see is straight off my camera.
Anyway... this vanity was purchased from Amazon and has an adjustable mirror, a single drawer, and a small bench for seating. The drawer is shallow so I use it to store my palettes. As you can see I've added drawers (from Amazon) to the left for makeup and the right is jewelery. The far right container holds my lipsticks and some eye pencils and is already almost full! It's technically for store display but was the biggest lipstick container I could fine (60 spaces, from Amazon as well).
When I see my vanity I think "organized chaos" because it looks a lot more cluttered from this picture than I feel it is while I'm using it. Whatever the case, I am so happy with it and I'm glad I finally have a designated area for beauty related things.
I am going to try harder to keep posting. A lot has happened in the time I've been gone, including trying new products, new clothes... many, many new things!
Hope you guys enjoyed this, thanks for sticking with me :)
