Sephora’s VIB sale wasn’t the only parasite on my bank account…
ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty was three weeks of beauty product bliss. Each day there was a different product on sale, sometimes up to 50% off regular price. Additionally, several brands were offering really cool free gifts with purchase (varying $ amounts) and certain stores were hosting special events.
Needless to say, I couldn’t help myself. Here’s what I picked up:

Lime Crime how I love thee.
Lime Crime does funky, opaque lip colors like no other. Their scent is amazing, they go on smooth and they stay in place, eliminating the need for lip liner. I have eight shades (so far!) but my latest favorite is Chinchilla, a grey with purple undertones.
Here’s how I wore it for the first time:
I chose to focus the attention on the lip color by keeping the eye makeup pretty simple.
While there were a couple of people at work that asked if I was okay or told me I looked “gothic” but the majority of the responses were positive. My peers seemed to dig the funky, edgier look as much as I did.
Why I love this color? Well, obviously because it’s purplish (sort of), but also because it’s a way of embracing the edgy black lipstick trend in a more wearable tone.
