This yellow jacket is by far one of my favorite things in my wardrobe. And yet…It’s one of those pieces that makes such a statement and can only be worn in so many ways that I don’t bust it out very often. So when I do wear it, the day feels special. And also mustardy.
Also, some of you that follow me on Twitter saw that I splurged on a certain fancy beauty item last week (and Instagrammed it, of course, because if it’s not on Instagram, it didn’t happen)…The lucky new product gracing my face is an Yves Saint Laurent Gloss Stain in an awesome orangey-red shade. I had read nothing but glowing reviews of this product in magazines, but I never know how much to trust magazines…they could be sponsored or something. I don’t know. But I had a 20% off coupon for Sephora so I decided to go for it. So, you want to know my unsponsored thoughts? I thought so…
The picture below (and the ones above, for that matter) were taken around 4:30pm. The last time I had touched up my lips was after lunch, 12:30 or so. Since then I had eaten a granola bar, a medium fries from Wendy’s, and a Diet Coke. (I like to snack, OK?) The point is, this stuff sticks! It’s part gloss, part stain, so the gloss does rub off on your coffee cup, but the stain sticks around for awhile. For me, it’s a great combo because I like to use something glossy on my lips so they don’t feel dry, but I also hate it when I get through a meal or a drink and I’m left with just a red outline around my lips. You know what I’m talking about. Tacky. Basically, this stuff is the best of both worlds!
So Santa, if you’re listening, I wouldn’t mind another color.
