Perfect Color

Monday, April 20, 2015

 Does anyone else find that sometimes their powder blush just clings in a way that is just not flattering? Especially in the winter when our skin is more prone to dryness. And it never seems to last very long. Or you suffer from a heavy hand and you end up looking like a clown? UGH. #girlproblems

So when I find a unique product that works wonders (and multi-tasks), you know I'll be here to share it with you! Enter Paula Dorf's Perfect Color. These sticks come in flattering colors that work well on eyes, lips, AND cheeks. Perfect for ladies on the go, amiright?
 I have it in the shade Ecstasy, a bright poppy pink. The stick is creamy, and extremely pigmented and I am absolutely loving it as a blush (it's a bit shimmery for my personal lip taste). A little goes a long way, and it blends out smoothly. And the lasting power is great! My favorite part, however, is that - even though the product is super creamy - it isn't soft. Anyone else get annoyed when they go to apply something and it just smushes? Well, you won't have a problem with this one! I highly recommend that you check it out and grab one for yourself! I can't wait to try one of the other shades!

Long, Long Time Ago...

Friday, April 17, 2015

Apparently I took these photos back in January (evidenced by the frost everywhere), loaded them into Blogger to draft a post, and then promptly forgot about them. Which, I guess, happens when life is super crazy and you fall asleep pretty much the second you sit down for more than 15 minutes (except when you actually need to go to sleep, because that is the best time to be awake, obviously). But, here they are. The weather may have changed, but this outfit is still mostly appropriate right now (except maybe the boots, because it's already too warm to wear boots). 
I bought this dress as an option for a job interview last summer, and sort of forgot about it in my closet. But I really love it. I don't have many brown dresses, especially ones on the business-end of business casual, so it's a nice change from the never-ending black, black, black. Except I really like black...
Hopefully I'm semi-back for good now. I have some posts lined up, and now that spring has arrived, outfit posts just got 1000x easier to take (hello, winter is freezing). I've missed you all, hope you've missed me, and look forward to chatting on social media, in the comments, and possibly in person (hey, any St. Louis bloggers?!)

What I Want from Sephora's VIB Sale

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Another year, another April. Which means another VIB sale at Sephora (aka my most favoritest store on this planet). I don't actually need anything this year (but I'll probably swing by just to visit and maybe see if there's anything I can't do without. But, y'all should go, because HI, ON SALE MAKEUP. You know what joy this brings me! Since I'll likely be shopping vicariously through you, dear readers, I've rounded up some of the excellent products that you should buy. Because 10% off (15% if you're a Very Important Beauty Insider [VIB]) is just too good to pass up!

There's the most perfect eyeshadow palette ever - particularly if you have brown eyes, my two favorite lip balms, a fool proof way to contour (my latest beauty obsession), and only the best makeup applicator in the biz. And a million other things. Seriously, go in, close your eyes and point, and I guarentee you will find something you want and didn't even know you needed!

Shop my favorite picks below, and let me know what plan to buy (or did) in the comments! VIB sale runs 4/16-4/21 in stores and online using code VIBLOVE. And, if you're a a VIB Rouge member, you can shop today! (code is ROUGELOVE)!
