Bright Lips Week #1 and #2

You'll have to excuse me for posting these back to back. I wanted to do daily posts but I forgot my SD card, blah blah blah... last thing before we get into this: seriously, excuse my eyebrows. I have misplaced my holy grail tweezers and I want to cry. I went back to Rite Aid to find a replacement and they no longer sell them. I will tear my room apart and find them... I swear! Until then, no eye closeups!

Robyn did a look on her blog with the Sleek Bohemian palette that I LOVED. I hadn't used a matte yellow in ages and was feeling tropical.

Maybelline Color Sensational is always awesome and this shade is no different. It takes a bit of layering but your lips won't feel goopy or weird after you do. It's like Mac's Vegas Volt but not quite so neon. I returned that lippie ages ago but I think I'd wear it now!

To prove how cheeky I was feeling, here's my outfit from that day:

























Cardigan: Target
Dress: H&M
Necklace: Lia Sophia
Belt: Target
Tights: Target
Shoes: Target

Okay so this outfit was sponsored by Target... no, just kidding! I didn't think the leopard print tights would work with the oxfords, but the rest of the outfit was simple enough that it did! I did get some strange looks in the elevator... but then again, I work in a ritzy office building containing some pretty big, snobby companies.

Today's look involved me wanting to use my new WetnWild Mega Last Lipstick. I wanted the one that looks like Mac Up The Amp, but somehow I ended up with this one, Sugar Plum Fairy. WTF? I have no idea what I did. I think I maybe looked at Ravin' Raisin (similar to Up the Amp) and grabbed this, which was in Ravin' Raisin's bin by accident. Either way, pretty color! Quite comfortable to wear as well. The shape of the lipstick isn't awesome though... I'm realizing I like pointed applicators in order to get a good lip shape. I had to use a brush and you can see I didn't do such a good job!
