Springy Lips


Last week my mom and I engaged in some good old fashioned female bonding. Meaning celebrity and fashion gossiping followed with a bit of retail therapy. We had one of those shopping days where everything comes together. I got exactly what I needed and Miles had a great time tagging along with the ladies.

I added a very necessary tight faux leather black skirt to my wardrobe. I'm Seriously obsessed with it. I love skirts, and I love leather, hence it's the dream team! I'm inserting this into my monthly rotation of 5-10 items, but I might just end up wearing it everyday :).

Also, last week one of my girlfriends introduced me to the Nars Tinted Moisturizer so I decided to check that out. I'm not usually a face makeup kind of girl, mostly because I don't have time to bother with it. I typiclly just go with a bold lip and a bit ofascar. But, I figured, if I'm Going to wear moisturizer anyways, I might as well wear one that has SPF AND gives me a bit of coverage. As soon as I tested the product at the Sephora, I was hooked! The $42 price tag was a bit off putting, but its a small price to pay for radiant and flawless skin (or at least the appearance of such). The Nars Tinted Moisturizer is literally one of the best products I've found in a long time. I really Can't sing it's praises enough: it'l feels light, protects from the sun, evens out my skin, brightens my complexion, takes only seconds to apply, and basically just gives me a finished look. I am all about any type of beauty regime that's quick yet effective.

Feeling bolstered by the look of my new fresh skin, I decided to add a new springy lip color. I love my Nars red, but I definitely felt like I needed a good alternat color. I bought the Mexican Rose Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil. It's still bright, but it's pink and glossy, which is exactly the look I want for spring. After I completed my purchase, I knew made the right choice because I received several comments on my lip color that day :). Yes! Makeup success!!

P.s. I stopped by H&M and snagged a sneak peek of the Marni collection debuting nex week, and I must say, it's exceptionally cute!

Here I am getting ready for date night with my new lips and leather skirt:
