I swapped my frosty lip for….

Blooming lovely give me liberty look fotd

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!
