Go ahead, poke fun at me for saying “hella” all you want, babe, but I’ll always, always own that sh*t.
It’s just something I picked up growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I also learned not to wear shorts with a tank top when I visit SF in July (because it can get downright cold!), and I automatically drop my “the’s” when referring to BART trains and MUNI. (SF Lingo 101: we say, “I took BART,” or “I took MUNI,” instead of saying, “I took the BART.”)
Yep, I’m a Bay Area girl through and through.
We may not host the headquarters of as many makeup lines as Paris and New York, but we’ve got some pretty bangin’ beauty brands reppin’ the Bay, like San Francisco-based bareMinerals.
And just like San Franciscans did back in the day, fans of bareMinerals this year can look forward to another summer of (lip) love, with a massive new launch of Marvelous Moxie Lipsticks, Lipliners and Lipglosses.
Next month, the brand is adding a total of 46 new permanent collection lip products, all priced from $15-18 each.
Seeing as how I change my lip color, oh, about every five seconds, I’m really excited.
This afternoon I made out with nine of the new products, and based on that, we have some pretty playful pigments and creamy textures to look forward to, and coverages varying from super saturated to soft and sheer.
Here we go! Bring on the summer of lips…

I can’t believe I’m saying this, because I’ve been about two snores away from a deep REM sleep throughout this entire season of Project Runway: Teams Edition, but I’m actually excited to watch it tonight.
Have you been following this season? I can’t wait to see what Patricia whips ups. I love her style. It’s so weird and wildly creative. Safe bet: she’ll have something interesting to show.
Well, time to open a can of TJ’s lentil soup, make a quick salad and veg out on the couch.
Have a great night, okay? One more sleep ’til Friday!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
