I’ve really been on a beauty kick lately and as I mentioned in this post, I recently picked up these two lovely lip colors. I might seem like a Maybelline pusher, but I promise I don’t work for them- I just really love their products!
The Maybelline Color Whispers are lightweight, while still providing a great pigmentation. They glide on very smoothly and evenly, like applying lip balm, and layer well. With just a few swipes, I had a nice stain on my lips and with a few more swipes the color was rich and nearly opaque. They are moisturizing enough that I don’t feel the need to constantly apply chapstick on top of the color and they have a bit of shine, but not too much (I prefer a matte or slightly glossy color- anything more just looks ridiculous on me!).
I found that the color wore off after a couple of hours; however, Berry Ready faded nicely, so even when it wore off, my lips just looked slightly stained. I love lipsticks in the red color family: as you can see below, Berry Ready is a berry color with pink undertones while Who Wore it Red-er is a pinky red color (it’s not a true red). I bought these on sale at my local CVS, so I paid about $6 for each, which I feel is a pretty good price.
Tell me: Have you tried the Maybelline Color Whispers?
Have you guys heard of Rifle Paper Co? I’ve been a big fan of their illustrations and stationery for a while now. They recently released a line of iPhone cases and I love every single one. If I weren’t waiting to upgrade my phone I would snatch one of these up immediately!
I stumbled across this little illustration on Pinterest and I love it. I’m still working on building the gallery wall above my bed, but I’ve also considered creating a separate collage of black-and-white images only. This print would fit in nicely there and it’s titled “Uniforme Français“- how perfect is that?
Pierre Hardy and NARS collaborated on a limited-edition makeup collection that is amazing. As always, I’m drawn to the nail polishes. The first set would be great for a dark, edgy manicure and the second set is absolutely spot-on for spring.
Statement necklaces are my go-to choice for making a casual outfit a little more dressy or for making tired old clothes seem a little fresher. I love the colors in this JewelMint necklace- so pretty and feminine.
Tell me: Which is your favorite?
I was in the mood for a bright manicure, so I painted my nails with these fun yellow and orange polishes. The colors make me think of orange sherbet or mango sorbet!
