16 days

This weekend I treated myself to a new lipcolor, Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivids in "Hot Plum". After seeing Ali rock the "Brazen Berry" shade, I knew I had to procure a tube of my own, and I do love it.

It's so hard to find lipcolors that are completely opaque and look just as bright on my lips as they do in the tube; but Maybelline has truly succeeded here.

Still anxious for spring, I'm playing with a mix of trends, black and white with my gradient sunglasses and coat, and pastels everywhere else. How many more days?

  2. I sure hope it's only 16 more days until spring, because I am sick of winter!

    You look quite springy in your lilac sweater and white jeans. Your hair looks so pretty curled like this too! Heather

  5. Ooh the lip color looks so great!!! And I'm one of the few people that likes a more sheer color, haha, because that means its more like chapstick ;)
    And I still love that lavender sweater! :)

  7. That lip color is gorgeous! I'm an orange lipstick person myself, but if I was ever going to change, I would try what you're wearing. Love the black and white with the lips, too!

  8. Buying a lip shade from Maybelline's vivid collection has been on my wish list for a while now. I am just waiting for my shopping ban to end. I am glad you did a mini review on this collection. Now I know getting this will be worth the wait. It is the perfect accent to your houndstooth jacket.GOOD GOING GAL.

  12. Such a pretty color on you! I was looking for a new lipstick the other day but didn't have much luck. I'm so bad at shopping for makeup- I need to take someone who knows more with me!

  19. Oh, Lyddie! I'm so glad that I was able to get you out there and try something so new and awesome. You are sure as heck rockin' that lip shade. Isn't it awesome how opaque that lipstick is?! I might have to try that weird, bright orange color they have, too...

    I do love the lilac here, too. You look so stunning in that color!

  24. I've been wearing pink lipstick for the last two days and I really like it, never thought I would. I have tried a matte lipstick from Illamasqua, it's very bright but perfect for the Spring, looks very similar to yours.

  35. Oh my, that lipstick color is so stunning on you! (but then pretty much any color looks good on you.) I really like how the lipstick color works with your lilac colored sweater, the two colors are making me wish it was spring.

  42. That's an awesome lip color on you!

  43. The pink lipstick I have is actually a lip liner because it covers better for me. It is a little waxy feeling though.

    I don't even know when it became spring! I woke up with allergies one day and was puzzled.

    I don't even know if I can deal with it being spring. That means a lot of months have just disappeared.
