Violent Lips

A little shocking at first but when you see these “lip tattoos” actually ON someone’s lips, they’re pretty amazing.  Obviously, I’m loving the leopard version and what’s really cool about these temporary lip appliques is that they actually contain vitamins that will help moisturize and condition your lips while they’re on.  I’m thinking on what Halloween costume would work with a different version now…

The Monday Rundown

Last week I debuted “The Monday Rundown” with my latest dress obsession and a birthday cake in a jar among other delights.  This week I’ve put together a list that I think just might top the last.

Rebecca Minkoff Foxy Cut-Out shoes: These immediately caught my eye, for obvious reasons.  The photo actually doesn’t even do them justice because you can’t really see that the wedge is actually cut out.  LOVE. 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream: If you read the new issue of Lucky magazine, then you saw my girl Maura’s rave review of this stuff.  She’s not lying.  As I’ve said a million times, I’m so not a lipstick person…but this Lip Cream truly is an amazing hybrid between gloss and ‘stick.

Pier 1 Blue Terracotta Frame: I’ve always been a sucker for a gorgeous picture frame.  I really love the color of this one and the unique design makes it a great birthday or hostess gift for a friend.

Flowerpot Cakes: Like I mentioned in the last Monday Rundown, I have a weird obsession lately with unique cakes.  This one is awesome because it actually looks like a flowerpot and would probably fool most people.  Oh Martha, you’ve done it again.


Elizabeth Grant Light Up Your Lips Gloss

So I’m really picky when it comes to lipgloss.  And why not?  There are a trillion different kinds to choose from so why settle?  Well I recently tried Elizabeth Grant Light Up Your Lips Gloss and now I have a new favorite.  Moisturizing Torricelumn makes lips appear fuller and smoother and I love a good high-pigment gloss that is NOT sticky.  There’s also an LED light in the wand of the gloss with a small mirror attached so you can apply on-the-go.  Loving it.
