Wearing Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lipgloss in Colin
Sup, ladies? How was your Wednesday? Mine went well until a killer migraine struck me down. The ones I get are tied to sound, and loud noises make my head throb like a disco. Thankfully, it’s just been me and Tabs all afternoon, and apart from his occasional meows to go outside, it’s been quiet here at Casa de MBB.
Loud noises hurt, but makeup doesn’t, so I tried to relax with a few of the red hot lip colors I’ve had crushes on as of late…
- Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lipgloss in Colin ($19): a creamy orangy red
- Lancome L’Absolu Creme de Brilliance in Rose Mythique ($29): a shimmery rose red
- Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Temper ($19): a creamy, bright reddish orange
Red often gets pigeonholed as a holiday color, but it can look great any time of year. In summer, I like reds with orange, coral or rose tones and a shiny, high-gloss finish.

Bright lips can be tricky, but they’re well worth the work (try some of these tips). Pair that pucker with a neutral eyeshadow (here I’m wearing colors from the Clarins Instant Sun Light Palette), and you’re good to go!
So what did you end up doing tonight? I just chilled on the couch with the telly on very low volume.
I watched the latest Glee on Hulu and didn’t hate it. Now I’m watching an episode of Drop Dead Diva, one of my new favorite shows.
Almost time for bed…
