I have bought numerous goodies lately which include beauty products, clothing, shoes and handbags. I haven’t posted any of my shopping “hauls” on my blog yet but have decided to start with a few items in this post! Not all items were purchased recently but I will note which ones were…
I am loving my new Michael Kors bag which I bought last weekend at the Michael Kors store. I was like a kid in a candy store when I walked in. I think you have all figured out by now that I am a huge fan of Michael Kors. I have 2 watches, 1 handbag and 1 pair of shoes. So far.
I have always been in love with taupe eyeshadow and lipstick. My signature eyeshadow that I wore almost everyday in High School was Covergirl “Tapestry Taupe”. This color is very similar to MAC “Style Snob” but less purple toned.
It’s important to protect your lips from sun damage and dryness. Your lips will stay looking youthful and luscious if you take good care of them. I am always on the hunt for a good moisturizing lip balm or chapstick that has SPF and is a good base for lipstick. I am one of those people that needs something on my lips all the time. While at Ulta today I had a coupon for one free item and I picked up one of the new Maybelline “Baby Lips” Moisturizing Lip Balms with SPF 20. There were only 2 flavors left on the rack and the girl working there said they have been selling like hotcakes! I love the bright colored tubes and flavor variety. The one I ended up with was “Pink Punch“. When I got to the car I tore it open and applied it assuming it was colorless since it had no mention of tint on the package. It was dark out and I went directly to Starbucks to get coffee after applying the delicious smelling balm later realizing I looked like a clown with bright pink lips. A gorgeous pink color might I add, just apply sparingly as there is tint! I loved the smooth moisturizing consistency of the balm so ended up marching right over to Target and picking up 2 more flavors, “Quenced” and “Peach Kiss” . I tried “Quenced” which is clear colored with a subtle lemon flavor. I will test out “Peach Kiss” tomorrow! Since I was on a sudden lip moisturizer kick, I picked up the new Vaseline Lip Therapy which was just too cute to pass up!
I bought some OPI nailpolish in the color “Are We There Yet” which is a gorgeous coral shade which I will post soon when I paint my nails next time. This week I have been wearing a color I picked up last year around this time by OPI which is called “20 Candles On My Cake“. Its a matte red with a hint of pink which appears more red with 2 coats and 1 clear topcoat (the way I applied it).
