I swapped my frosty lip for….
Blooming Lovely!! Yay! I just got back from Mac and Sephora. I ended up only buying 3 things from the Give Me Liberty of London collection and I thought I was going to get so much more. I didn’t even buy any real makeup at Sephora!
Surprisingly, Petals & Peacocks which I was the most excited about kind of fell flat in my eyes. It was too similar too all the lipsticks that I already had. It looked stunning on my girlfriend but I didn’t have to think twice about passing on this. I was actually a little discouraged after this… SO next I tried Blooming Lovely and it was LOOOOVE. I was so sold as soon as I put it on. I know this is considered a totally unwearable color but in my weird world, I consider this an everyday nudey color. It is a very nudey, pale lilac and reminded me slightly of Snob. I would choose this over Snob on texture alone. Waaaaay less drying!!! AND it was an Amplified so that usually is a done deal for me. I will have to take better pictures of me wearing it tomorrow in natural light. I am also forever thankful MAC decided to do away with the cheap looking stickers they used to put on some collections.
Next, I swatched Shell Pearl which is a gorgeous, glowy peach Beauty Powder. I can’t wait to play with this tomorrow!! This is more peach toned than pink which is what it looks in this picture.
I was on my way out and English Accents Lipglass caught my eye. It was a creay mauvey, lilac lipgloss with slight shimmers in it. This was absolutely a perfect mate for Blooming Lovely and is pigmented enough to wear on its own. I will do a lip swatch of this tomorrow in natural light.
So I ended up getting 2 out of my 6 or 7 picks from the collection and 1 I wasn’t even looking at. I made a quick stop into Sephora and picked up the Korres Jasmine Lip Butter and a LaVanilla Candle which I always eyeball but didn’t want to spend the $20 on…. it was on sale for $10!!! I’m interested to see if the Korres Lip Butter lives up to the hype. I have the LaVanilla rollerball perfume in Vanilla and I adore it so I had to have the candle as well. Its pretty big too and it has 3 wicks in it. I hope it is one of those candles that really releases it’s scent throughout the room!
