Almost to the end of another week!
I have had an interesting week getting used to contacts and working. Blah. And even though its officially FALL the temps here have been in the 80s, so getting into the Halloween and fall mood is a task! Officially ready for cooler days and nights.
In my last post I shared that I had been eyeing the new limited edition Too Faced Melted Matte Gingerbread Man lippy. I had never before tried a lipstick from the Melted line and have frequently seen them on social media with rave reviews so I decided why the heck not? So I ordered it from Sephora and it was sitting on my doorstep yesterday afternoon.
The packaging is so dang cute I can’t even! It is supposed to be “Gingerbread Scented” and it smells like fresh baked, warm gingerbread cookies! The smell is just amazing.
The color is a reddish brownish burnt orangish shade—which is perfect for fall and winter.
The staying power of this- I am very very impressed with how long and vivid the color lasts! It dries down super quick to a nice matte finish, and doesn’t budge even with drinking and eating. I did notice some transfer on my cup, but the color stays rich.
The applicator is a standard doe foot, which I like to use the pointed tip for lining and then filling in.
I highly recommend this lipstick and I think that the color would be universally flattering!
Here is the rest of my Sephora order:
I had over 800 VIB points banked and decided that I wanted to redeem them for the Laura Mercier Eyeshadow Primer and the tarte Rainforest of the Sea H2O moisturizer, and I am glad I did!
The Laura Mercier primer reminded me of a better quality Urban Decay Primer. I wasn’t a big fan of the UD, by the way. The LM went on nice and creamy and my shadow is looking really good today! I received the shade “Wheat.” Not greasy, patchy or chunky at all and is a good runner up to my all time fave MAC Paint Pot.
I tried the tarte moisturizer last night before bed, and it smells kinda herbal and minty. It is thin but feels amazingly hydrating to my skin! Not oily or sticky at all!
