Happy Friday! How was your week? I had a pretty easy week, I got back into town (from Chicago) on Tuesday and I had Wednesday off from work. So I’ve only worked one day this week. Before you get jealous, just remember, my bank account is suffering because of it. I’m on a no-buy until the end of July. It’s so hard! Especially with the new Sephora Pantone stuff (they came out with some new stuff recently) and the Ariel collection coming out. Limited editions are my weakness. And so is glitter and sparkles
Well anywho, on to the lippies. Today I’m featuring one of my favorite things in the world, rosy lips!
For additional pictures and swatches,
There’s just something about Dior glosses, they make you feel fancy when you use them. The packaging is luxe, right down to the silver mushroom-shaped lid. The color looks more coral in the package, but it really plays up the natural pink in your lips when applied. I love the little bits of shimmer *not picked up on camera*, it gives it some really pretty dimension.
YSL Rouge Volupté Shine, Fuchsia in Excess 5 // Sephora ($34/0.15oz)
Yves Saint Laurent also has the luxe packaging going on. There could be a turd inside that tube and you’d still feel fancy using it. Like all YSL lippies, it has their signature mango scent. This really melts into my lips, it feels incredibly soft. It looks really bright in the tube, but it applies sheer-medium coverage.
Cleverly named, because this really does feel like butter. It’s very soft and smooth on the lips. It’s a thicker formula than most glosses. It’s also very moisturizing. I prefer this over the Lip Butters in a tub because this is much easier (and more sanitary) to apply.
What are some of your favorite rosy lip colors?
Allow yourself to be a beginner. No one starts off being excellent.
Drink water. Wear SPF.
