Monday Purples

So, we've established that beauty blogging is hella fun - but sometimes it's really fun. Like when you find a shade of lavender and lilac lipstick and gloss that somehow manages to suit you perfectly.





I told my boyfriend I wish my lips were that shade originally, and he said, "but aren't they?"

That said, I put my hour of watching AMC's The Walking Dead to good use - finally utilizing the Halloween Sally Hansen nail strips I was harping about some time ago. There's definitely a learning curve to these things, but I managed to finish both hands using only one packet (the box comes with two) so a lucky friend of mine will be getting some green fingers tomorrow. 

Is it okay if I want to end this post here? I just really liked the lip color. And my hair. My hair was being so nice the whole time during the shoot. I guess we'll do this. Do you like the lavender/lilac lips? Wanna guess the shade?

  6. I've always been bad at guessing games, so I'll just say you look great.

    By the way, Beauty Look Book has put up Dior's holiday 5-color eye palette. Is it still on your want list? Would love to know your opinion on it.

  8. Unfortunately, LMdB doesn't do anything as off-kilter as this :) Well, silly silly me forgot to snap a picture of the tube itself but I'll get on it with it asap! The lipstick is no longer available for sale though, I hope you guys won't throw things at me O.O

    @Leigh UM. Truth be told, i wasn't expecting the shimmerbomb. I'll still go to the counter to try it but I'm not *that* excited to anymore. What did you think about the palette?

  9. Xiao, I had a similar reaction to the swatches. I can do shimmer, but these look downright frosty. Still, I'm going to check it out in person. I remember vacillating over Guerlain's Les Bois de Roses online, until I tried it in person and instantly fell in love. Photos are only half the story, no?

  10. You look amazing in purple lips! I don't know that I dare wear them :P They don't seem to look as good in warm weather as in cool. Oh and aren't those Sally Hansen nail wrap thingys amazing?!

  11. @Leigh That's true. Speaking of: I need to pick up some of the new Guerlain palettes. Their shadows have this sheen I just can't find anywhere else.

    @Paris B I don't know if I'd do half the things I do here back home :) They are! I can't wait to see what they're doing for Christmas!

  12. Is it Violetta (MAC) w/ some clear gloss? Could be Illamasqua's Underworld too... Anyway, looks gorgeous on you :)

  13. loving that violet lip combo!

    How are you liking Season 2 so far? It's a bit slow but I hope it means that the rest of the episodes will be non-stop action!

  14. And being from The Bay Area - I appreciate your usage of the word 'HELLA'

  15. LOL lexi! I think season 2 would be great if it followed in the same vein of the first 40 minutes of the first episode. The second ep was a little meh to be honest, but it doesn't deter me from the show.
