A Burgundy Obsession


Before the arctic tundra hit Michigan and makeup application took a backseat to literally wrapping myself in clothing, I was down right obsessed with burgundy. The obsession is still alive under all these layers and I've gathered up a handful of my favorite burgundy/oxblood items to share with you.

Every time I look at Revlon's "Wine Not" or the Stila Convertible Color in "Rose" I naturally think, "That's just too damn dark for my face." Yet with a light hand and some strategic product placement these blushes are definitely my favorites. I've been going for a more bold cheek lately and have been really loving the results. It's also incredibly easy to do in the mornings before I'm pulling on my ugly snow boots to face the world. 

I didn't know exactly how I'd get on with the Too Faced Melted Lipstick in "Melted Fig" as I've never been one for lipgloss-esque products, but boy is this stuff fabulous. More like a stain/lipstick combo, the coloration is alarmingly good and it lasts for ages. The product itself is a touch more redish purple than the packaging suggests so keep that in mind when considering a purchase. Plus the packaging gets two thumbs up for me. 

A burgundy post wouldn't be complete without my beloved "Plumful" and "Grandest Grape". Two colors I've talked to death in my 2014 Favorites video, I blame them for my growing love for all things burgundy. Two products you need to own, but at the very least give a swatch.

Nothing gets me more in the burgundy mood than my Christian Siriano Debonair Oxfords. Although they're definitely not winter weather appropriate (they do keep the water out however), I stare longingly at them dreaming of warmer months where I can traipse around in them again. Never has a shoe gotten me so many compliments.

This love affair with all things burgundy will sure to continue when I can feel my hands again. What burgundy products are you in love with?

xoxo Kayla

  2. I shy away from deeper shades of lipstick, but that blush looks like a really lovely deep burgundy blush!
    I picked up a pair of burgundy shoes too, they're a lot more special than just a black pair I think!
