This Week's Most Loved #15


This was the week for branching out on the lip front. I have a terrible habit of reaching again and again for my MAC "Syrup" lipstick and not giving my other lip products a chance. With my Mac "Syrup" dwindling down to nothing, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to look in my lip drawer for some new favorites. I decided to give my Stila Long Wear Lip Color in "Daring" ($10) a go one day knowing I was embarking on a big undertaking. This is quite the dark color, something I usually avoid like the plague. I decided to man up and do it and actually really loved it. The pigmentation was intense and lasted ages. It's definitely not an everyday color, but I enjoyed being adventurous with it.

I've also been reaching for my Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm in "Rosy Lipped" ($5.99) lately which is unusual for me. I always find myself buying yet another lip gloss with the hope that it'll be the one that changes my opinion on glosses. They end up all hanging out together in my lip drawer, fairly unused. This lip balm isn't sticky and is fairly light in pigmentation. I liked combining it with my Stila Lip Color to give it a bit more shine. I don't think it has any wondrous lip balm properties, but it's a nice product regardless.

Finally, the Zoya Nail Polish in "Odette" ($9) I received in my February Ipsy Glam Bag has me obsessed. It's such a beautiful color and the formula is easy to work with. It's not the most chip-resistant polish out there, but the complete loveliness of the shade totally makes up for it.

What products have you been loving this week?

xoxo Kayla

  1. I am a chapstick fanatic and so I always find myself reaching for that when I really need to be grabbing some color! I think I may take a looking into the Almay! :)

  2. I had that Zoya on my nails this week too and loved it. I'm so tired of winter and it was a nice kick of spring. Received many compliments as well. Also this week something I finally started using and love is one of my Almay glosses. The one I used is Cherry, I think...but still, great formula. I don't know why I never reached for it before :)

    Have a great weekend hun :)
