A Big Hello from Head to Toe: A Lipgloss/Lipstick/Shoe Update

Published in: Makeup

Hoy! Greetings from the West Siiiide! πŸ™‚ It’s shortly after lunchtime here on Thursday, which I’m really happy about because it means a couple of cool things…

  1. It’s almost Friday! Are you doing anything fun this weekend? I don’t have any plans, but I think I may hit the mall on Saturday. I kinda want need a new pair of shoes.
  2. From coast to shining coast, women are touching up their lip makeup after lunch.

Which reminds me, what are you wearing on your pucker right now? I went with gloss today, Josie Maran’s Lip Gloss in Authentic ($18), a shimmery coral pink.

ABOUT: Josie Maran Lip Glosses

JM’s glosses come in six shiny, hydrating shades and feel a lot like MAC Lipglasses to me. They’re non-sticky, with a strong brown sugar scent, and a taste that lingers for a while. While I’m not usually a fan of scented/flavored lip products, I don’t mind these at all (the scent seems pretty authentic too).


Hmm… I wonder what kind of shoes I should get. I could use new pairs of everything, LOL! What are you wearing on your feet today? I’m wearing my trusty responsible shoes — a pair of ancient (circa 2005) Nine West pumps in chocolate brown suede.

So, what are you rocking on your lips and feet? πŸ™‚

    Sadly I haven’t had lunch yet, I’m holed up in the library working on a homework assignment due at 5pm today (but I have a discussion section at 4pm)… but SO is on campus and promised to bring me food in about an hour. πŸ˜€

    Today I’m wearing P&J Lipstick #14 Strawberry Jam and my black suede slouchy ankle boots from Target. =)

    LOL @ your ancient 2005. I totally have shoes from around that time (high school for me) that I still totally love!! I love Nine West too. I think their shoes are always so classy yet functional. (My friends make fun of me for totally being a middle-aged career woman at heart LOL.)

      You were in high school in 2005? Way to make me feel ancient, LOL! πŸ™‚

      Is the discussion you have tonight the class with the infamous Comic Sans outlines?

  2. Devs says:

    The lip color is gorg! I really those pumps too. Today I wore my sparkly silver bebe sneakers. I know, sounds really, um, flashy, but I am still young so I think I can pull it off (I hope!)

    • Karen says:

      Your kicks sound super cute!

      Have you seen this season’s Bebe heels? They’re all dangerously high! A three and half inch heel is my max, but they’re all like four or five AND they have platforms!

  3. Aparnaa says:

    I love that lip gloss! I so don’t need any more lip glosses but I want that one hardcore…and I wish I had responsible brown heels that still looked fashionable! My brown heels are fashionable but painful and kind of not responsible looking. Weird, but true.

    Lipwise, I’m wearing plain old Korres lip butter in wild rose, and I wore my kicky brand new splurge black nearly knee high boots today. I’m in love with these boots, no joke.

    • Karen says:

      Way jealous of your boots, girl! Are they zip up or pull-on boots?

      • Aparnaa says:

        Zip up! They’re suede, but on the outside top they have these small tassels (I know, it makes it sound like a curtain pull, but I promise, it’s so not Sound of Music) made of patent leather. Normally I can’t get into patent but it’s just the littlest amount – seriously, I’m going to City Hall with these shoes.

        You know, boots are the perfect thing to buy on weekend shopping trips to the mall…

  4. Kelly says:

    On my lips I’ve got on MAC Lavender Whip with Ever So Rich Cremesheen gloss over it. On my feet I have some black leather boots with silver buckles.

    This weekend is all about hoping for some sun and sleeping in! πŸ™‚

  11. CynthiaCCC says:

    On my lips is a new lipstick I just bought today: Too Faced Centerfold, a densely pigmented creamy-dusty pink. First foray into Too Faced…liking it so far, although my lips get dry really easily, so I may need either a balm underneath or a gloss on top. I had a Drs appointment this morning, and I decided to work from home the rest of the afternoon, so on my feet are my comfy shoes–J-41 slip-ons, brown with pink elastics. Love!

  12. amy says:

    Today is my day off from work and I am just home chilling. Though I have put in a few hours to work on my portfolio. I watched Rachel Ray and read a Sookie Stackhouse novel: Club Dead at the same time. No makeup for me today and I went bare feet since, I just at home.

    Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Lip Balm on lips and Lowa hiking boots on feet. Super glam! I spent a good chunk of time at a local soup kitchen prepping veggies today. Needed low key comfort.

  15. Cas says:

    Oh my, another pretty awesome pink shade! Too bad we don’t have this brand here πŸ™

  16. diane says:
