Oh, summer, how I’ve missed you so! Last night it was warm enough to walk around outside in a T-shirt without a jacket or sweater.


Without a jacket or sweater. Seriously, I still can’t believe it was real!

After months that dragged on like years of “partly cloudy skies,” it was so nice to just stroll down a bustling boulevard crowded with happy people out taking advantage of the clear, comfortable night. With a cup of ice cream in my hands, I walked along Fourth Street in downtown San Rafael looking up at stars — yes, real stars — that I’d almost forgotten were there.

I was wearing one of my favorite summertime lipsticks from MAC called Sandy B, a shimmery golden pink. I don’t know why, but I only think to wear it when it’s warm outside like it is now. It’s the same beautiful color all year round, but I guess I’ve grown to associate it with summer.

It was a perfect night — Sandy B Lipstick and MAC Evolution Revolution Lipglass on my lips, El Hub on my arm, ice cream in my hands and stars above my head. The only thing missing was a husky tabby by my side. πŸ™‚

Have you ever worn MAC Sandy B? If not, perhaps today’s giveaway can help. Yup, it’s…

How do you apply your lipstick (straight from the tube, with a brush, top/bottom lip first, atop a layer of lipliner…)? Are you doing anything fun for the Fourth of July? What’s your pet’s favorite toy? What’s a song that always gets your booty on the dance floor? — you get the idea.

      (Ahhh…I can’t figure out how to comment NOT on other people’s comments!) I do the same thing. I apply my lipstick straight from the tube, though I don’t twist it up too much because I’ve broken a lipstick doing that… πŸ™

      My dog hates to have her ears cleaned. she gives me those sad puppy dog eyes and tries to sneek away one paw at a time =(

  5. Sammi says:

    Ooh that’s a pretty color. Hmm.. pet’s favorite toy. I’d say our two dogs love the tiny hippo they have. They’re big labradors (chocolate and black) and they always tend to go for their tiny little hippo and walk around with its head sticking out of their mouth. It’s just adorable.

  6. Zsuzsi says:

    Lovely giveaway.
    I’m still missing summer, beacause in my country now it’s like october, I want warm, sunny summer! πŸ™‚

  7. Vittoria says:

    Very beautiful color! I like it!

  8. Mary says:

    This is such a beautiful shade! Thanks for giving us a chance to win this!

    When I was in grade school, I usually went to summer camp…and I loved it because I made a lot of friends and the camps I went to were always artsy. Got to perform in a play, learn to dance, paint, and create jewelry. Very fun!

    As an Aussie, 4th of July isn’t for us to celebrate… but I -will- be celebrating for a personal reason – my Honours thesis is going to be submitted, finally!! A year of hard work, finally coming to an end! So, I expect we both will be having a great fourth of July! πŸ˜€

  12. Hilary says:

    i hope I win!

  13. hopeful says:

    I like to apply my lipstick both ways. I use a lip brush for lighter coverage and straight from the tube for heavier coverage. But I always remember to blot my lips before consuming any food or drink in order to avoid ingesting harmful chemicals in the lipstick.

  14. Hope says:

    You’re just now taking off your sweaters and jackets? I’m so jealous!

    I’m in college and the day before I got on the plane to come home I was wearing a sweater and when I stepped into the airport parking lot at 10 pm after our flight it had to be like 100 degrees.

    It’s so humid and gross! My poor cats look miserable, they’re always moping around. I can’t ever think of Tabs moping!

  15. Tiffany says:

    I never did summer camp as a kid πŸ™

  16. Christina says:

    Ooooh! What a beautiful color! I wouldn’t mind adding Sandy B to my MAC lipstick collection :3 I just got my products from the Bloggers’ Obsessions in the mail! πŸ˜€ I was so excited especially to wear Evolution Revolution while I was doing my errands! I can’t wait to try all the lipstick/lipliner combos! πŸ˜€

  17. Jody says:

    I apply my lipstick straight from the tube, bottom lip first.

  18. Christine says:

    I’m working a 12 hour shift on the 4th :'(. But hey, since it’s a holiday I get paid time and a half which means more $$$ for cosmetics :P. And I imagine we’ll get some interesting cases in the ER on the 4th…

  19. Lorinda Hicks says:

    This would be a great present for my daughter! she loves your blog!

  20. aclearcutsign says:

    I only have one lipstick in my arsenal (so far), and it’s red (of course!). The way I apply it usually depends on the look I want: for a more casual look, apply straight from tube or pat with finger. I use a brush if I want a more precise look or going to a formal event.

  21. Liz L says:

    Awesome giveaway! Thanks! Happy 4th of July!

  22. Alison says:

    I apply lipstick straight from the tube. Usually I just put it on whenever I get a second during the day, so I don’t really have time to whip out a mirror and brush and do a painstakingly accurate application. Haha!

  23. alyssa says:

    I apply my lipstick right from the tube, sometimes i use lipliner (im still trying to get the hang of lipliner) a song that always gets me on the dance floor is Blow by Ke$ha looove that song. and this color is so beautiful

  24. Haley says:

    Love the color! That sounds like a glorious night:) I sampled 3 different ben&jerrys pints, the s’mores one=heaven

  25. anna says:

    I apply my lipstick straight from the tube.

  26. Kristen says:

    Right from the tube for me πŸ™‚ that is a really pretty colour!

  27. Summer is definitely here in Nor Cal!! 10 AM in the Capitol and it’s already pushing 80. Yikes!!
    Also: I am seriously in love with Evolution Revolution (I had no idea I’d love a nude gloss this much lol!) and will be soooo very sad when I run out of it!

  43. Natalie Martinez says:

    Summer is the best time ever!!!

  44. Cassy says:

    Your question about dogs favorite too makes me miss my Bubee. We lost him last October (the day before I went on vacation, boy was that a looong vacation. lol) His favorite toy was this green thing that looked like the bottom of a mop (it might have been, I don’t remember buying it) He would throw it in the air and chase it all around. Sometimes he threw it a little too straight up and it would come back down and smack him in the face. I love when he played with that thing, though, and he did up until the very end. It was the one thing that made me forget how old he really was.

  45. Kellie says:

    This fourth of July I will be blowing fireworks up with my boyfriend, just like we did last year. Then once forth of July is over, the military gave us a new assignment in Virginia so “Hello Cross country road trip (Washington State to Virginia)

  46. Vikki says:

    Love the color!

  47. Naj says:

    This is lovely! It looks kinda peach-y.

    I usually apply from the tube. Ive tried lipbrushes, but it applies streaky. Could it be something to do with my technique? πŸ™

  48. Brooke says:

    I went to a day camp, but never a sleep away camp. I’m not the outdoorsiest of people lol

    This color is so pretty! I would love to pair this with MAC’s Evolution Revolution lipglass that I bought last week:P

  50. Rida says:

    I love this shade so much! i don’t own any MAC lipstick and i’d love this to be my first! <3
    Thanks so much!

  51. Erin says:

    My dog’s fave toy is a stuffed dog that looks just like him. He humps this poor toy all the time. We call it “hump-buddy”. We are actually on hump-buddy number 2, he wore the original out!!!

  52. Karen says:

    love that color!

  56. I’m spending the summer in SAT classes!

  57. Isabel says:

    Hi from France, I love your blog!

  58. Right now I only have ds lipsticks so I just apply from the tube! I would like to think that I’d use a brush when I got more expensive lippies, but I think I’d rather just look cool with my awesome expensive(r) lipstick case in my purse, cause I’d make me feel grown up!

  59. auroragyps says:

    My cat’s favorite toy is a large green tinsel pom pom that has been named Big Greenie (he has a twin, and a blue cousin). It’s really compact & firm, so it’s good for throwing. She used to play fetch with a lot, but not so much anymore. She’s also been known to talk to it while stalking it and talking with it in her mouth. Talking with her mouth full… my cat has no manners. πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for the giveaway. I’m hoping to get Evolution Revolution at the mall this week or so. I’m going to try pairing it up with MAC’s Meltdown lippie. πŸ˜€

    In May, it was 24/7 rain, in June it was all 90F+ weather (or rain on some days). We had no spring! I’m one of those people who don’t like summer. Spring and fall, please.

    I apply lipstick straight from the tube. I know it looks better with a brush but I’m too lazy!

  63. Jessi says:

    This lipstick looks gorgeous! And I can see how it would look great with EvRev.

    4th of July weekend I will still be recovering from surgery! So probably lying in bed, occasionally getting up to joust with crutches, and hopefully having a hot dog delivered to me :-p

    My dog’s favorite toy is a string that used to have a ball on it. Yes, we have gotten her new toys since that one broke, but she really loves that string. :-p

  70. Giana says:

    I apply my lipstick different ways depending on the color and the pigmentation it gives off. If it’s a dark color and I don’t want it to be that pigmented, then I’ll dab it on my lips and spread it out with my fingers. But most of the time I just apply it from to tubes straight to my lips!

  71. Cornelia says:

    I used to go to a sports summer camp when I was a kid, now I hate sports, and am about to go to opera camp for the second year in a row. I am so excited! I get to sing this gorgeous aria from a little-known operetta called Die Schâne Galathee. Super exciting!

    I just bought a lip primer and plumper combo from E.L.F. It just doesn’t work for me. The shade is too light and my lips have too many chaps. Maybe it’s better just to wear lipstick alone.

  78. Tierra says:

    I am a straight from the tube kinda gal!

  79. helen says:

    Wow, that’s a gorgeous color! I would love to wear that with your gorgeous evolution revolution!!! Enjoy the gorgeous weather!

I have never won anything and would feel like a million bucks if I won this beautiful Mac lipstick!

  85. Aleeya says:

    Hey Karen! Just wanna say that I LOVE EVOLUTION REVOLUTION. I received it on Monday and I am in love. I layer it on top of some of my favorite lipsticks like Mac Fresh Salmon, Syrup, Crosswires, and even Rimmel Latino and it just sets it off in this mutha!! That is the first lipglass that I bought a back-up for because I wouldn’t know what to do if I ran out. I love everything about it. So, fabulous job on the lipglass girl!!

  92. Michelle says:

    I can’t say I’ve ever applied my lipstick other than straight from the tube. Though I’ve heard it helps the color last if you dab it on with your finger. How true is that?

    Anyway, I hope you’re having a great 4th of July weekend! I’m home for the weekend with my boo, so it’s perfect πŸ™‚

    Ah, that’s such a pretty color, bu I always have trouble working with frosts. Shimmer against pigmented lips looks like I sprinkled metallic overlay over them. Any tips on working with them? I just moved to the northwest, and my brain still have a different definition of summer clothes, so now I’m always underdressed for the weather, lol. Does it ever get warm enough to wear short shorts here?

  120. BooBooNinja says:

    This lippie is gorgeous! I’ve been intimidated by lipsticks up ’til now, maybe because I’m more of a natural girl and I associated lipsticks with opacity. However, this one is looks too good to pass up. Perfect for a summer pucker.

    I only went to camp through our school in the 6th grade during spring. It was week long spend the night away with the rest of the class and really kind of fun. All the other schools in our district did it too but at different times of the year.

  129. Grace Vick says:

  131. Rebeca says:

    Summer camp was the time of my life! To be young and carefree πŸ™‚ ahh

  132. Jenny says:

    Never worn Sandy B. I only have a few MAC shades (Hue, Cyndi, and the old Ever Hip) so it would certainly help me expand! I always apply straight from the tube, but I like to do it over a coat of lip balm, otherwise it can look a lil crepey.

  133. Michelle says:

    Very pretty color — I adore any peachy pink lippie!!

  134. Monica says:

    kind of exciting to clean out my closet.. not gonna lie <3

  135. chiara says:

    ciao! I only apply my lipstick straight from the tube! love this color

  136. Raven says:

    I’ve been to summer camps, my most memorable one was when u was eight and my friends and I went to this camp that had the cabins built on stilts and linked together and had ladders and zipline and firepoles and slides to get upand down from. It was pretty cool! Until I went off the zipline, hit a tree and split my heelbone in half. They promised me it wasn’t broken, so they kept me at the camp for a few days, having to carry me around everywhere since I couldn’t go on nature walks. Finally I went to the hospital, got it x-rayed and had a cast on for the next 6 weeks.

  137. Brenda says:

    I was never allowed to go on summer camp, but soon my own daughters will go… (and I’m not looking foreward to it)

  138. Katie says:

    Happy 4th weekend!

  139. Stephanie says:

    I like to use a stain first in a neutral color (Outlast Lipstains by Covergirl is usually what I use) then go over that with my lipstick. Lastly, I always top with CO Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine from Bath and Body works!

  140. tanveer says:

    I apply my lipstick straight from the tube, though I read today that using a lip brush extends the life of a lipstick by 20 uses πŸ˜›

    I also love using cream blushes in summer, they remind of summer.

  157. Marian says:

    I usually apply my lipstick straight from the tube unless it’s red. With red, I like to be very precise in my application, so I use a brush.

  158. Laura says:

    This lipstick is so pretty!

  159. Kate & Zena says:

    Ohhh, pretty!

    The only summer camp that I remember going to is horse camp. I think I only went one year because I just started leasing a horse after that. My trainer is teaching pony camp now and it makes me miss it. At 25, I’m a little too big to ride the ponies now.

  167. Jennifer says:

    It’s been hot (as in highs in the 90s hot) here in the southeast for weeks now – your weather actually sounds kinda nice! Have a happy 4th!

  168. Carrie says:

    Gorgeous color! I always apply my lipstick straight from the tube and I only apply gloss over it if the lipstick is a little too drying. I always look for creamy formulas because my lips tend to be on the dry side.

  169. Maureen says:

    It’s a great prize!

  170. Jessica says:

    Ohhh I’ve wanted to try Sandy B ever since I read that Mischa Barton wore it on The OC. Everyone has flawless makeup on that show!

  186. Laura says:

    I usually apply lipstick straight from the tube, unless it’s a really bright color. Then I’ll use a lip brush.

  187. Shelley says:

    I went to summer camp in junior high. It wasn’t very fun…

  188. Sara says:

    I ain’t doing shit for the holiday except hide out from this horrible weather. Too many 100+ degree days in a row. It’s killing my ability to enjoy being outside. You know what might make it better? Free MAC Sandy B lipstick. πŸ˜‰

  189. Stephanie R says:

    I usually apply my lipstick straight from the tube, then layer a gloss with spf 15 over it. I’m happy though….I just learned how to apply cream blush with an angled blush brush!

    Very pretty colour I must say!

    I always apply my lipstick over a layer of lipliner, dab on a bit of powder over top, and then reapply another layer of my lippie. Works like a charm πŸ™‚

    Hey Karen, love your blog.. My favorite makeup is anything NARS.. but i’ve slowly started using MAC makeup, and i’ve actually bought an eyeshadow pigment. It’s in Rose, love it!!!

    My parents sent me every summer until I was 14. My favorite was the (majorly nerdy) historical camp at Clermont House (
    Have you ever had a summer fling?
    How do you apply your lipstick (straight from the tube, with a brush, top/bottom lip first, atop a layer of liplinerÒ€¦)?
    Straight from the tube!

  209. R says:

    Sandy B should be my summer fling! I have my fresh new tube of Ev Rev just waiting to cozy up to her. Beauty chemistry is the only chemistry I’ve got this summer, y’all!

  213. Georgia says:

    I used to apply straight from the tube, but the way I was doing it always managed to snap it off eventually, so now it’s a brush or no lipstick at all x

  214. paula says:

    Soft serve ice cream ?

  215. Natalie says:

    OMG I have had Sandy B on my wishlist for, like, ever! My dog’s favorite toys are anything that we DON’T want him to chew on. (I’m allergic to cats!) I always apply my lipstick from the tube. I’ve tried brushes, and liked them, but I’m lazy so I’m good with the tube πŸ™‚ Thanks for the giveaway!

  216. Jarucha says:

    I just bought a lip brush so waiting to get it in the mail. My rabbit loves apple sticks….he can chew it all day.

    Too hot here, need a cool color lipstick (that’s my excuse).

  220. Teesh says:

    I don’t feel comfortable using a lip brush, so I apply lipsticks straight from the tube. Haha! And I wish I’ve experienced a summer fling. I never did, maybe due to the fact that I only look better now, and the rest of my teenage years were just awkward phases of my life.

  221. Julesmond says:

    I apply lipstick straight from the tube. I only use my lip brush for red lipstick and OCC liptars.

  222. Inger Marie says:

    Nice prize πŸ™‚ Since I am not american, 4th of july is not a holiday, but I am actually going to a barbeque at a friend of mine, and I am really looking forward to it! Just hope the weather will be better, since it has rained all week…!

  227. Jhoanna says:

    traffic is ridiculous!

  228. Bonnie says:

    Love the color of Sandy B.! I’ve been wearing it as of recently, but my biggest complaint is that that even though I prime my lips and moisturize them every evening, it ends up looking like a gritty texture in almost no time. I usually don’t like to wear lipgloss over my lipsticks because it ends up all over my face when the wind flies through my hair, and I have to reapply at least 2-3 times during the day…

  229. Tahnee says:

    Never been to summer camp.

  230. tina says:

    gorgeous colour!

  231. Karen K says:

    I apply lipliner first, then lipstick straight from the tube. Bottom lip first. Old school, creature of habit. Only time I bust out a lip brush is for good old hooky ho red lipstick. Which is my favorite.

  232. Ana says:

    This is such pretty color!

  233. Harpreet says:

    im obsessed with coral nail varnish this summer!

  234. Jackie says:

    My favorite thing to do in the summer is go tubing down a river that is 45 minutes away from Tallahassee with a group of friends! It takes about 4 hours to get down the river and it has shallow points, deep points, places you can jump off of, sandbars you can lounge on with a drink in hand, etc. It’s the ultimate summer activity! I’ve never tried on Sandy B, but even if I don’t win, I’ll be trying it on next time I’m at MAC! Thanks for the tip!

  235. cherith says:

    love the lipstick.. perfect for summer!

  236. Bridget says:

    I’ve never tried Sandy B…I don’t have the best “name association” with Sandy. But that color is GORGEOUS!! …

  240. Maria Aguyé says:

    I confess I only use a brush for very special ocasions… even when I know it will last more and look better by doing that, just because I am too lazy to clean the brush after every single usage… Maybe I’ll stock up on lipstick brushes to use a new one everyday, and then wash them all together…

    I’ve been to summer camp….for all of one day. I couldn’t stand it and never went back! Sports weren’t for me I guess.

  249. Leah says:

    I am the worst lipstick applier, seriously. From the tube its all good, but anyway else, I’m doomed. I only own one MAC lipstick, because they cost 36 dollars where i live.
    I tweeted, @leahsland.

    I’ve heard heaps about this lipstick! (:

  250. Abby says:

    I went to so many summer camps throughout my childhood. My favorite was a girl scout camp I went to for nine years. I was so sad when I had to get an actual summer job…

  251. Angela says:

    What a beautiful color,I can’t believe I haven’t noticed it until now! I have four birds and their favorite toy would probably be me,they are always climbing my clothes,chasing each other in and out of my shirt or hanging off my hair swinging around.

    I want it, I want it!!! I’ve been lusting after this since your evolution revolution post!!!

  255. Diane K. says:

    I am such a MAC junkie that I’m shocked that I never heard of this color before but it is absolutely gorgeous. I really love the multi dimensional aspect of it and I can imagine that when worn, depending on the lighting, the color must take on difference hues, almost as if you are wearing 2 different lipsticks. This is such an incredibly universal color and can be worn with any outfit, casual or formal, any season and for any event. It’s simply lovely. Thank you for giving one of your fans the opportunity to possibly win it. Good luck to alll!

He has made himself quite comfortable in my apartment!

  263. Chelsie says:

    It’s funny you should mention camp, because right now I’m smackdab in the beginning of CampNaNoWriMo, a summertime version of the international novelling event that takes place every November. In a nutshell, it’s 50K words of original fiction in 31 days and it is AWESOME.

    Hi Karen,

    I actually wanted to thank you for introducing me to a certain litter. Sounds awkward I know, but once I was just procrastinating via your blog and I ran into a video for cat litter made of corn… The other day I went out and bought a similar litter (I couldn’t find the brand from the video). I have to say this litter is AMAZING. No smell…nada. Even though it’s not the same one, I wouldn’t have bought that litter if I hadn’t seen it on here with a good review from you!

  303. Joy P. says:

    That lipstick is gorgeous! I tend to shy away from very bright/bold lipsticks because I think it won’t look good on me. You could say I’m even scared of those kind of lippies, lol. MAC Sandy B is definitely my cup of tea πŸ™‚

    My favorite part of summer is being able to wear summer dresses!

  320. Kate says:

    what is your all-time favorite summer song?

  321. Erin P says:

    I just randomly found your site a few days ago and I’ve been obsessively reading your posts. Loving it and your kitters!

  322. Monique Puno says:

    Summer season just ended here in the Philippines but I’m so glad I still have tan! This lippie would definitely look great with my current color. πŸ™‚

  323. Aneela A says:

    I always apply lipstick straight from the tube πŸ™‚

  324. Darlene says:

    Summer is definitely here! I love that shade of lipstick. …thanks for the giveaway.

  325. Katie says:

    I am very excited that I just got back home from a six week intensive program in New York City for preforming arts, and just had a lovely evening with my two best friends and my boyfriend!

  326. Rozae says:

    What a pretty color, thanks for the giveaway. I rarely do the lip brush thing, its usually straight from the tube!

  327. TheLaniGold says:

    great color πŸ™‚ that looks nice ^^ thank you ((:

  328. Camille says:

    I apply my lipstick straight from the tube. I do not like applying lipgloss on top of it. Maybe i am not a lipgloss fan. πŸ˜€ Whenever I don’t have a time to wear make up at all or when I am just too lazy, just swiping my favorite lipstick will do the trick. You can never have too many lipsticks.

  329. Cristina says:

    I want this…period!

  330. Kendra martin says:

    The day before i was supposed to go to summer camp for the first time i cut my foot on a clam shell and had to get 11 stitches! Needless to say my trip to summer camp was not very fun. =-(

  331. Kayla K says:

    That shade is seriously beautiful! I would probably associate it with summer too… It’s so light & natural-looking, and the golden shimmer screams summer! Well, the summer I always dream of. I live in Florida and our summers are absolutely disgusting >:( rainy days, hot days… muggy, sticky, sweaty grossness all around. I do not recommend it! Glad you’re enjoying some beautiful weather, though :] and I’m quite jealous, too

  336. Katie S. says:

    What a beautiful lipstick shade!

  337. Melodyy says:

    I’m more of a straight from the tube type of gal, but I’m hoping to start using a lip brush with more intense colors because I feel like the finish is so much better.

  338. rocio says:

    My chiweenie Adelaide loves a stuffed bone that I got her. It was supposed to be super long lasting but she destroyed it really fast just like she does all the other toys lol. My cat Manuel is really big, but he is still obsessed with this scratching post we got him when he was a baby…. He looks so silly when he uses it!

  339. Heather says:

    Straight from the tube for me – I know I should probably invest in liner and a liner brush, but I’ve been too lazy!

  340. LorrIne says:

    Wanted to try this for a long time πŸ™‚

  341. cheryl says:

    I’ve never tried that shade of lipstick before!

  344. Claudia says:

    Random comment: My sister is getting married in two weeks and I’m her maid of honor. I’m throwing her an at-home spa experience next week to, hopefully, help her de-stress. πŸ™‚

  345. Y. says:

  348. Despina says:

  349. Liz says:

  361. amy rouse says:

    Met the love of my life one summer on the river. Oh so sexy!!!

  362. Jenny says:

    I’ve had my eye on this lipstick for SO LONG! I just purchased “Evolution Revolution” from the MAC website last week and had to hold myself back from getting Sandy B as well! It would be GREAT to win this lipstick!!!

    In re. how I apply lipstick: I detube all my lipsticks into stackable plastic jars, so I pretty much have to use a lip brush!

  391. katheel says:

    I have one of those burnt/blistery places right now on the roof of my mouth, from eating too-hot pizza and scalding the roof of my mouth with the cheese. I can’t stop playing with that spot with my tongue. From now on, cold/room temp foods only. Dinner? Sushi!

  398. Melody says:

    Sandy B is so pretty! I don’t think I’ve ever noticed it before…why is the lighting at my MAC counter so dim lol? I always apply lipstick straight from the tube but I’d really like to get a good lip brush for darker colors.

  413. Catherine says:

    I apply lipstick from the tube πŸ™‚ But if it’s a dark colour, I’ll blend it out/neaten it with a lip brush after.

  414. Maria says:

    Such a pretty colour! Thanks for all the give-aways πŸ™‚

  415. Ariana says:

    I’ve never been to summer camp but I always went away with my grandma to her apartment in the Dominican republic I would always leave to go there the day after school ended and come back to the states the day before school started. It was fun and I got to bond with my grandma.

  416. Jianing says:

    I just ate two scoops of butter pecan ice cream, and am really regretting it. I could have eaten some fruit instead… and I’m too lazy to workout this late at night. Darn it!

  418. Micah says:

    i hope this color will make him fall for me again

  419. Natalia says:

    I love this color! Wanted to buy something like it but already have some lipsticks which last for years.

  420. Patrice says:

    I love makeup and changing eyebrow shapes and hair color and all sorts of beauty items. It reminds me of remodeling a home. When you get tired of the paint color, just paint over it into a more appealing color. Same principle goes for lipstick, right?

  421. Issa says:

    I like going to the beach during summer! The last I had, we went snorkeling in a beach down here with my cousins! we fed the fishes and it was oh so beautiful! πŸ™‚

  426. gina says:

    i just woke up from a nap! camping is tiring! BUT SO FUN!

  427. Tamara says:

    Ah I just watched the new True Blood! Cray cray!

  428. Alyse says:

    Here comes the sun…and there goes my makeup melting off my face! Summertime boosts my spirits but no amount of primer can prevent my eyeshadow from creasing or my foundation from melting on the hottest days. Thankfully lipstick and gloss stay on my kisser regardless. In addition to being fresher than dark eyeshadow, I can use subtle, enhancing shades containing SPF to the beach, or the dog park with my pooch, without looking like I’m trying too hard. They are a must in my summertime makeup repertoire.

  429. Melessa says:

    i see what you mean, i get a summery vibe from this shade as well.
    im going to the carnival with my boyfriend and his family for the fourth, and to see more fireworks. saw fireworks with my sister and dad yesterday. and just got back from a get together at my grandmas. fun fun.
    have a great fourth! be safe!
