What I've Been Reading: December 2012

Question of the month: What make-up do you carry around in your handbag?

In my handbag you will find MAC Pressed Blot Powder, a NYX black pencil eye liner and a ton of lip products! I just cleaned out my bag and purged some products. It wasn't easy, but it needed to be done so this list won't be as long and sickening as it could have been.
This is my go-to lipstick and lip liner at the moment, along with NYX Pumpkin Pie (not pictured). 
NYX Thalia Lipstick - a pretty medium/dark rose hue
NYX Retractable Lip Liner in Natural - a great liner for just about any nude/neutral shade of lipstick
From top to Bottom:
Lorac Couture Shine in Vintage
*fun fact: I wore NYX Pumpkin Pie & Lorac Vintage Gloss on my wedding day*

Nars in Turkish Delight

-I originally purchased this to use with Nars Belle De Jour lipstick which I really liked together but for $25 a pop, there are better options out there and more importantly, there are options that aren't as sticky as Turkish Delight.

Philosophy Vanilla Birthday Cake Lip Gloss

- This gloss is great with any lipstick for added shine and it's also pretty when worn alone too

Danielle & Co. Organic Lip Balm in Pure Lime

-I'm so in love with this stuff and no, it's not because it is my name, although that is what attracted me to it in the first place. It doesn't leave a waxy feeling on your lips like some chapsticks and balms will, it hydrates your lips, and it smells amazing too!


  1. We love carrying lip products around, don't we? I love the selection you carry - such natural & pretty colors!

    1. I usually don't touch up my makeup throughout the day, unless it's my lipstick or to control a little shine (in the warmer months). But yes, I have a weakness and I'm always on the hunt for the perfect shade:)

  2. i spy some lip products i don't have, i'll have to hop on them! everytime i try to pick up thalia, it's always out.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love hearing from my readers.
