Review: The Balm How ‘Bout Them Apples Palette

Affilier Gratuit

The Balm How 'Bout Them Apples Palette Birchbox’s program for bloggers, Birchbloggers (however did they come up with that name?! 馃槈 ), continues to impress me more than my monthly boxes did. I was lucky enough to win my third item for review, one that looked cute and adorable and I just wanted to have it, The Balm’s How ‘Bout Them Apples palette for cheeks and lips.

Haul: The search for THE Lanc么me lipstick

AffilierAchet茅

Lanc么me lipstick I know this may come as a shock to some of you, but I can be a bit obsessive when it comes to lipstick鈥攅specially when it comes to finding the right shade of lipstick. Which is how I wound up the owner of, count them, FOUR different Lanc么me lipsticks, in the two-monthlong search for a specific one.

OOTD: Dot Dot Dash

OOTD I can’t post this OOTD without getting teary. This was back when I had my lovely photographer/friend/colleague Danielle to take photos for me. And this was back when my hair was actually long. The one thing I don’t miss is the surroundings. They may make for good fashion photos, but try working somewhere where this is all that’s around you!

OOTD

MY HAIR!! *SOB*

It was certainly too cold to leave the office without a coat, though it was just slightly warmer鈥攅nough for me not to have to bundle into my big, black puffer coat and break out my beautiful purple coat.

OOTD A tad blurry, but I had to point out that my friend Dagmar and I found out that we both had the same sunglasses. 馃檪

OOTD I know it’s a tad matchy matchy, but I actually love this outfit. Black, white, and red is one of my favorite color combinations.

OOTD I always feel a bit fabulous wearing it.

OOTD But I can still laugh at myself. 馃檪

DSC_2300 This was my first attempt with the Bobbi Brown liner, incidentally. The lipstick is Melt’s Belladonna 2.

OOTD Yes, I AM a bit ridiculous. 馃檪

FOTD: Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner and MAC All Fired Up

AffilierAchet茅

I’m not ashamed to say that this face of the day with Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner and MAC All Fired Up lipstick was inspired by a look I saw on another beauty blog. Even people obsessed with beauty products can get stuck in a rut.

That’s why Simone’s look was such a revelation for me鈥攊t reminded me of the days I actually used to wear COLOR on my EYES. And it gave me a way to ease myself back into it, and to do it again in a different, edgy way.

I may or may not intend to buy the colors she used (hey, green looks good with brown eyes!). but I immediately was reminded that, hey, I have the same liner in a gorgeous purple. And so the look was born.

A blog devoted to red lipstick?! City Girl in Red Lipstick

You guys! You guys! I’ve discovered a blog completely dedicated to red lipstick (and it’s not run by me, quelle surprise!), City Girl in Red Lipstick. Bestill my heart!

And the lovely Anita who runs it featured me today! Check me out! And check out the rest of the awesome content!

Wishlist Wednesday #22 – The perfect red lip eye makeup

For this Wishlist Wednesday, I’m going with something a little more abstract/theoretical. We all know how much I love my red lipstick, but I’ve yet to nail down the perfect red lip eye makeup.

I know it’s very French to wear red lips with no eye makeup, just mascara, but I feel like my eye shape and features look washed out and dull without both shadow and liner. But then when I use very nude, natural colors, I feel like I need something more.

Then the other night I saw this photo of Olivia Palermo (I don’t even really know who she is or why she’s famous, but she’s gorgeous, has great style, and her boyfriendfiance is a stone fox.)

OOH LA LA!

I always joke that I could never be a Parisian/French woman, because I wear too much color. I so admire the minimalistic, neutral-color鈥搘earing aesthetic that typifies Parisian style, I just don鈥檛 think I could ever pull it off long-term. (That鈥檚 why I adore reading Valentine and Naelle鈥檚 blogs, because they鈥檙e Parisians who dress however the hell they want to. 馃槈 )

Review: La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo

Affilier Achet茅

Whenever anyone talks about over-the-counter options to treat adult acne, La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo invariably comes up. Back when I was still treating my product-induced breakout, but after I had discovered Clarins Lotus Treatment Oil and calmed the worst of my breakout, I was looking for something else to use to treat the stubborn zits and bumps that loved me so much, they didn鈥檛 want to get lost.
