It's been one crazy week! With juggling last minute projects to working nonstop back to back. I can finally relax. There weather was amazing too bad each day it was spent in a classroom or indoors at work. Sigh. Lately I've been obsessing over lip gloss. Fact: I carry at least 9 different lip products with me at all times (lip balm, lip gloss, lipstick, etc). Why? Sometimes I can't decided what color to wear, or if I'm feeling a certain color then I have to wear it. So I have a handful in my purse at all times. My current favorites
Chanel (left: satin lip lacquer #76 Ming $32, right: glossimer in #141 no longer available)
I started getting into lipstick about a year ago (talk about late bloomer!) And of course I wanted to ease myself into. And the lip lacquer is a mixture of lip gloss+ lipstick even though the color on the brush is highly pigmented it gives a nice wash of color to my lips without being over the top. The picture does this color no justice. It's a very pretty color! And the lip gloss is more brown to me, but it comes off sheer with loads of sparkle!
YSL (left: Rouge Volupte #1 Nude beige $34, right: Golden gloss #010 Golden peony $30)
The nude beige is an absolutely gorgeous color! However a little does go a long way. This lipstick is on the creamier side. Just one or two swipes is enough, if you keep going you might end up with barbie doll lips. The lip gloss gives a bit of color with massive shine and sparkle. And the lip gloss contains 24kt gold! Haha how random is that? I love pairing these two together if I'm feeling a little "blah" and this is an instant pick me up! It just lights up my whole face. I mean how can it not?
Some people carry a bag full of change, I carry a bag full of lip gloss and lipsticks!
