The Lipstick I Never Wear...

Here's a look at two lip products I wish I had the balls to wear!


1. Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Jet Set: A true ruby red complete with a matte finish. I love this colour and originally bought it as costume makeup for a friend. When I wear it I find it brings out too much redness in my skin. Whether that be acne or leftover scarring. I think it would look beautiful on other people though! 
Also, the formulation is amazing. Very smooth and moisturizing, not at all what I expected from a $6 lipstick.

2. Lancome Juicy Tubes in Sweetheart: It is a berry toned gloss with lots of shine and chunks of gold glitter. Beautiful to swatch and admire on the vanity, but not practical enough for me. 


Are there any lip products you own but rarely wear? 

***Reality tv show catch-up!

This summer I have indulged, not in chocolate, an extravagant vacation or a boyfriend, but in trashy reality television. I could dedicate an entire post to why people watch this stuff..but rather than analyze I figured I'd just enjoy it.

Currently I'm watching Real Housewives of New York and New Jersey. I have found my favourites from NY. The witty and unconventionally beautiful Carole Radziwell and the emotionally unstable and ridiculously fun Sonja Morgan. Look this series up on TV links, it is worth a watch.

And my black horse this season is Gallery Girls! All about Manhattan's uber competitive and chic art scene. Seven women busting their a**es to land internships and work for the best of the best. There are some awesome characters. I think I am gravitating to sassy/artsy Liz and quiet/qualified Maggie.

Is anyone else watching these shows? C'mon guys...don't leave me out here alone!

  9. Ok, I'm nuts about Real Housewives of everywhere! The only one I don't watch is Miami. Right now my fave is NJ, but I watch NY too. I think Theresa on NJ has just lost all touch with reality. She is nuts! I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. :)

  11. Both of these are so bold! I think you can pull either of them off - I like Jet Set a little more than Sweetheart

    I have only seen Real House Wives of NJ and Vancouver, as silly as both are I find myself strangely intrigued by them - so you are definitely not alone
