Summer Red Lip and Polka Dots

The end of my first real summer is coming to a close. I live in Indiana for most of the year for university and it is getting chilly! The leaves are falling and the wind is crisp! I love and hate the cold. I love the autumn holidays, the incredible multi-colour leaves, the lovely smells (cinnamon, pumpkin, spices, sweet vanilla!). Basically, I’m a cliche girl who enjoys fall jajaja

Anyways, before I go on and on about Fall. This was an interesting summer where I took a god-awful six week statistics course. Of course I needed a beautiful red lipstick when I got the Sunday blues about going back to class!

I used a combination of MAC’s Viva Glam I and Rimmel’s Exaggerate Lip Liner in Diva Red (024).
Viva Glam I is a beautiful dark brick red. But I don’t feel like it has a lot of brown in it though, it’s mostly just a more intense, deeper red. I really prefer this color to MAC’s Russian Red (don’t kill me!) because Russian Red is a bit brighter. It looks amazing on everyone! I just don’t feel like it suits me well 😦 The Rimmel Lip Liner is a brighter pink-tinged cherry red. It’s not an exact match but I just picked it out really quickly and I wasn’t bothered by matching it exactly (but maybe this part is more important than I think it is) and it was cheap so hey! Why the heck not!

I decided to wear this Polka Dot dress from F21 that my father and stepmom got me. I really like how simple and classy it is! Sorry about the wind and the seat belt! Safety first jajaja

I wore this combo the other day at my University the other Saturday. I was initially intimidated but it was a simple day studying with my two good friends so I decided to give it a whirl! Do you ever feel intimidated to wear such a bold lip color around school/friends/people you know?

MAC Creme in Your Coffee Lipstick Swatch

Hello everyone! I’ve taken an unexpected hiatus from blogging due to the demands made from my wonderful statistics class… *cue vomit*
Although I appreciate the education, am learning tons and getting the course out of the way, I don’t expect I will ever take to math.

Anyways, this week I was in San Francisco with my father and stepmother and we had a great time! I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to visit such a lovely city.
While there I got MAC’s rosy brown MLBB lipstick “Creme in Your Coffee”. I had been wanting this color for ages but I couldn’t justify it’s simplicity. Especially because I own MAC’s “Syrup” and I felt it was too similar (judging off online swatches). However, Syrup is truly more of a plummy mauve on me.

This lipstick is a cremesheen finish. It’s not overly drying but I do like to use it with a lip balm under it to give a more glossy finish.
Overall, I really enjoy this lipstick and I’m looking forward to wearing it more often in the fall when my skin gets paler.
