So let's talk about makeup cause I have been oggling and adoring a few products this week!
PRIMER - do y'all use primer? I am no fan of full coverage foundations, and so have never loved primer. Until.... this little baby!

FOUNDATION - I've gotta tell you that I thought this "foundation-in-a-stick" idea was a little hokey. But then again, we've got soap-on-a-rope and solid-perfume-in-a-stick, so it isn't too far off, right? This Maybelline stick sold it for me!

Ooh, this is so pretty! And it's crazy that it works! It is medium coverage, and is so easy to use! It glides on smooth and feels soooo good on my skin. It also doesn't irritate my skin like some other foundations. As in: at the end of the day, my skin still looks like my skin and not like it has been covered up the whole day.
LIPSTICK - I have been loving this lipstick this week. Is it really lipstick? It's more like a very tainted lip balm that smells like cherries and childhood. The shade "Almost Famous" adds a nice wash of healthy red to your lips. Despite being a bright color, it is pretty forgiving in application - ie you don't need a mirror! p.s. yep, I hear ya if you were that person who walked passed this aisle at Ulta and rode it off as "kid's makeup." I tried it on the recommendation of Emily Noel, and I have changed my mind!
