New In: ColourPop & Laura Mercier

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

Yay for new things! Boo to spending money instead of saving it. Let's just say it's an investment into elevating my personal style. Ha!

 I made my first order to ColourPop on the January 2nd and received my items in the mail on January 9th. I ordered an Ultra Matte Lip in Beeper, the Lippie Stix Primer, and a Creme Gel Liner in Swerve (Black). I've gotten the chance to use all three of the products, and they're all pretty great! Beeper is a gorgeous color, very matte and long lasting; I can see why it's such a best-seller on the ColourPop website. The Primer works well under regular lipsticks and helps to prevent feathering. I bet it will do an even better job under ColourPop's Lippie Stix which are next on my list to try. The black eyeliner works well, but it isn't waterproof. It stays put in the waterline for a bit, but eventually starts to fade within an hour or so.  

I've also purchased a new foundation from Laura Mercier called the Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation. I got mine in the shade Chai, and it's a perfect match for my winter complexion. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin, and it's a build able medium coverage foundation.  

What's your favorite foundation formula, and most sought after ColourPop products?

The Rain Before the Snow

Sunday, January 10, 2016

Happy 2016, everyone! And happy first post of the new year. Today I wanted to share with you an outfit I wore in December before the snow began to fall. If you didn't know, it only snowed like once in Chicago in December. So far it has been the most mild winter I can ever remember. It was mainly windy and rainy all month long, so I was able to get away with not wearing a heavy winter coat or boots. 

I kept this outfit smart-casual with a pair of black trousers, an oversized scoop neck tee paired with a bralette underneath. Oversized coats are all the rage and perfect for the mild weather (I would opt for a thicker coat for the snow). In 2015 I learned that I'm slightly enamored with sneakers, so I added to my slowly growing sneaker collection and finished this outfit with all white adidas superstars. 

I'm going to miss the mild winter weather, but bring on the snow so we can hurry and get to spring!
