Before this month ends, I wanted to get a post in about where/how I want my “look” to evolve in 2014.
Unfortunately, we are not all Beyonce. We don’t just “wake up like dis” (and neither does she for that matter, but i’ll leave that for the Beyhive to debate ). However, that does NOT mean we can’t all be “flawless”.
Often times I save the days when I “dress up” for a special occasion, or when I feel like I am going somewhere than warrants a cute outfit, but from now on I’m going to think a bit differently. I’m gonna challenge myself to get all dolled up
everyday, well lets be real not every single day….there are just some days where your trip to the grocery store requires nothing more than comfy sweats and a tee. But, you get the picture, more often than not. I can think of at least four idioms, cliches, phrases to support this new rhetoric.
From the moment I tried on MAC’s Ruby Woo red lipstick, I immediately knew matte lipstick was it for me. The texture and look of a matte lip just makes the color pop and look absolutely perfect on my skin. I have become seriously obsessed with all things matte since then…lips, nails, even cars.
(Once you go matte, you never go back.)
This is why I was literally ecstatic to learn that MAC would be coming out with an entire collection of matte lipsticks of the fall!
Each lipstick will be accompanied with a Pro- Longwear Lip Pencil. The lipsticks will be available online week of Sept 3rd and in-stores Sept 12th.
