Estee Lauder Love Your Lips Swatches and Feline Floral Arrangements

Published in: Makeup

Heya, ladies. πŸ™‚ How was your day? What was the highlight? Mine was the big Cherry Kiss I gave myself with a little help from Estee Lauder Love Your Lips.


Isn’t she bright?

Signature Lipstick in Cherry Kiss, $20

I’m imagining it paired with thick black cat eyeliner and falsies, YUM!

Of course, sometimes I’m more in the mood to wear gloss. That’s where Sweet Kiss comes in…

Kissable Lip Gloss in Sweet Kiss, $18

She and Coral Kiss are pretty darn sheer, but I like that about them. It keeps things interesting. When I mix up my routine with a sheer lip look every so often, I feel like it makes my lips REALLY pop when the next time I wear a brighter look with lipstick.

Flowers: they’re for decoration, not for fiber

On Monday night El Hub brought home some flowers (and a jar of Nutella!), which I promptly put on my desk.

Aren’t they pretty? Tabs thought so.

He even rearranged the carnations to better catch the afternoon light coming in through the window.


Good kitty. πŸ™‚

So what are you up to tonight? Doing anything fun? I’m just reading about the new Apple iPad, which looks an awful lot like a gigantic iTouch (pretty screen though!).

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    The iPad or the iTampon? I’m seeing that joke fly around a lot but I still don’t find it funny! Not a fan of the iPad but I am a SUPER FAN OF SWEET KISS!! It’s so soft & delicate, perfect for Spring which is not right around the corner…

    Cherry Kiss! How awesome would that look over a similar pink lipstick with black cateyes? These colors make me miss spring even more!

    Those are gorgeous colors.

    I’m glad Tabs like the carnations as much as you do, but don’t let him eat them. Carnations are toxic to both dogs and cats. It’s not life-threatening, but dermatitis or an upset tummy does not sound fun for little Tabs. Thankfully, Zena can’t reach where we place flowers so we don’t have to worry too much.

    Gorgeous flowers… and Nutella. He’s a keeper πŸ™‚

    I am gonna have to bribe someone to by me Cherry Kiss. Such an awesome color.

    If money wasn’t an issue (& I mean if I had Steve Jobs’ type of $$), then i would so buy it because I like gadgets and am an Apple fan. But I have an iPhone, macbook pro and Kindle. Don’t really see a point of getting it.

      I have still yet to break down and get a Kindle! Do you like yours? I still love the feel of books and paper in my hand… maybe I’m just old school like that.

      • Marisol says:

        I really like mine. I read so many books last year (about 30) because of the Kindle last year. If you want, I can bring it with me when we meet up that what you can check it out. Kelly (VampyVarnish) also has one and really likes it. And I also have the Kindle app on my iPhone so if I am waiting or during my lunch hour, I can continue reading the book on my iPhone.

    LOL Tabs! So cute. My Tiggy (the one who looks like a skinny Tabs) is obsessed with all things remotely plant-like. He freaks out whenever pine needles get on the porch and will eat them — even though they always make him puke. I guess it’s worth it to him! He has devoured several bouquets of roses. A friend of mine gave me a cactus as a present and he ate half of it. Luckily, it was a soft cactus so he was perfectly fine but still, my cat ATE A CACTUS. He even rubs his head up against and chews on all the fake plants in our house. It’s hilarious. He’s a very strange little boy, but I wouldn’t have him any other way. He’s a sweetie πŸ™‚

    Okay, I feel like I’ve told you enough about my cats over the past year that I have to show you photos of them, haha.




    Aisha is a little fatty, I know, I know, but she’s a little slimmer than she was in those photos. I have been good about keeping her on a diet! We have to watch her like a hawk, though, to make sure she doesn’t eat T’s food (who, if anything, needs to GAIN weight).

    • Karen says:

      OMG! Tiggy ate a cactus?!? The boy must love his fiber!

      Thank you for sharing pics of your kittehs! Both of them are so beautiful. I love Aisha’s markings and Tiggy has the prettiest eyes. πŸ™‚

      I’m feeling the CCL love right now…

    Good thing that bouquet doesn’t have baby’s breath, my cat freaks out and eats the tops off them in five minutes. I’ve just seen some videos of the ipad and it seems like a glorified, and expensive, itouch. I was under the impression it was going to be bigger and function as a laptop computer, but I guess AT&T just needs to overload their 3G network some more.

    Love Sweet Kiss. So pretty! I’m going to stick with my iPhone. It fits in my purse and…well, no that’s about it. I’m sure the iPad will have its niche.

  16. mkdallas says:

    The flowers were sweet, but I’m ALL ABOUT the Nutella, lol. That is like my worst addiction EVER and while I try to act all self-righteous and put it on apple slices, I just eat it with a spoon after the apple’s gone. Honest to God, I love that stuff, maybe even more than lip gloss.

    Cherry Kiss is gorgeous! Thick black eyeliner is totally the way to go – that would look awesome.
    LOL, Tabs is too cute. He reminds me of my cats, sniffing on every plant in the house (except in their case, the sniffing usually leads to chewing…)

  20. Devs says:

    Cherry kiss is such a wonderful color. The glosses look great as well!

  21. My cat eats any kind of flower or plant we bring home too!! We have to make sure they’re not poisonous because he will literally eat any kind of plant. I saw one of the commenters saw her cat flips out for baby’s breath- mine too!!! Weird, huh?

    Awww…Instant Karma’s kitties are gorgeous, beautiful fur patterns! Tabs is your resident feline florist! Love ’em! Oh, yeah…I got distracted…love Sweet Kiss, too! : )

  23. Megan**** says:

    I know I’m late to commenting this post, but I have to tell you: THANK YOU FOR THE SWATCHES! I am *in love* with the Cherry Kiss.

    But.. I’ve got to ask — Are you wearing only that lipstick? No liner beneath it?
