What do you love about lipstick?  OMG—what ISN’T there to love about lipstick? The right color can make your outfit standout more and make you look like you’re ready to take over the world (ok, maybe not that intense but you know what I mean…lol). I love that there are so many different finishes and colors and I’m such a fanatic I can justify owning 50 million variations of the same color…lol.
If you were a lipstick what color would you be and what would be the name? Hmm…maybe coral. It’s not a color most people think of first but once you put it on you wonder how you ever did without it…lol. My lipstick name would be Crazy Coral
What is your favorite lipstick of the moment, when did you wear it last and how did you wear it?  It’s so funny how I spent the last few questions talking about how I’m pretty much a lipstick junkie, but my current fave is a gloss…lol. Sally Girl Lip Gloss in Dreamy.StyleBeautyDoc
What made you choose this color?  It’s super opaque and very pigmented and for just 99 cents it’s very high quality (it’s teeny tiny though which is how they’re able to make it so affordable). I have a lot of current faves (Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Gloss in Fuchsia Vinyl, my Chanel pinky mauve lip combo (http://www.thestyleandbeautydoctor.com/2014/10/chanel-giggle-lipgloss-mauvey-pink-nude-lip-on-dark-skin/), and many, many more but I’m so marveled by this because it’s such a soft yet striking shade and it’s super accessible so my readers can snag it, too without feeling like they went over their makeup budget :)
 
What is your favorite brand and why?  That’s like a mother choosing her favorite child. I can’t pick a favorite brand…lol. I love so many brands for so many different reasons and couldn’t possibly pick just one. Even as I type tons of brands are coming up with new lipstick shades. There’s too much pressure in picking one.

August Obsessions

Could this year go by any faster? I’m torn because I’m not ready for the summer to be over but there’s always something refreshing about the fall. But I’ll just continue to enjoy the present moment. Here are some things I’m all about this August. Per usual, click the pic for info.AugustObsessions

Books: I go through phases with books there are times where I’ll find a good book and want to keep reading as much as I can. Sometimes, I’ll get stuck on a book and won’t read for a while. It’s reading time! Recent good reads include: Big Little Lies & 32 Candles. Currently reading: The Girl on the Train & The Awesome Girl’s Guide to Dating Extraordinary Men.

Mules: These are great transitional shoes to go into the fall and they’re chic too! There’s definitely a mule variation for every type of style.

Chambray: Denim’s lighter, summer friendly cousin is easily one of my favorite fabrics. I think over the course of the last few months I have purchased almost every type of clothing in some variation of chambray.

Makeup Brushes: For real, when was the last time you refreshed your brush collection? It’s probably time.

The lovely Kierra from Lavishingg is next in our lineup of lipstick addicts. Here’s what she had to say.

What do you love about lipstick?  What I love about lipstick is that it can bring your whole makeup look together! When you have your eyeshadow perfect, contoured your face to the T and then add your favorite lipstick whether it’s a nude or a bright pink, it brings your whole look together and makes me feel super confident!
If you were a lipstick what color would you be and what would be the name?  If I were a lipstick I’d be the perfect in between nude/pink shade so that I was wearable everyday but also if I had a smokey eye I could tone down my lips a bit. Hmm, for my name, that’s hard, maybe something like “sugar” or “sweet heart.”
What is your favorite lipstick of the moment, when did you wear it last and how did you wear it?   Call me basic but my favorite lipstick shade right now is Velvet Teddy by MAC paired with my NYC lip liner in the color “Spice.”Kierra1
What made you choose this color?   What made me choose the color is because of the way it matches with my skin tone. I’m naturally tan so darker, but not too dark, shades compliment my skin very well and these two paired make the perfect middle color!
What is your favorite brand and why?   My favorite brand… It would have to be between MAC and Nyx. MAC had so many colors and different styles or lipstick; when you go in you have so many different options to choose from. Nyx on the other hand also has many options and dupes for MAC colors and of course Nyx is much more affordable!
Thanks again Kierra! xoxo

Over the weekend I attended two events and had plenty of fun! The weather was great and so were the experiences.

Saturday I went to the Everyday People Brunch at La Marina. It seems like every time the Everyday People event is held I have to work so I’m glad I got to attend, especially in this beautiful location! LaMarina1
