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?

Sheer Red Lip Friday! – Nivea Fruity Shine Cereza

I have got to be up for work and class in 6 hours! But I wanted to make a quick post before bed. I have recently been super interested in sheer red lip products. I think they look so beautiful, especially now that winter is coming.

Here I have a sheer red lip balm from Nivea which I got in Argentina last summer. Now, it is in Spanish but I know that the same one is sold in the U.S. When I have time I will find the name in English and edit it into this post!

I LOVE this lip balm. When I was growing up in Bolivia I had one for YEARS and I would barely ever use it because I felt that it was too pigmented (I was only 11-16 years old. Now I feel like I really have to load it on to get coverage but it is a great product. It has EXTREMELY small silver glitters that are barely noticeable but add shine.
