My brain was farting up a storm today. It took me forever to figure out what lip gloss I wanted to wear.
It was like rocket science or trying to build a better mousetrap or something. I dunno…
Finally, out of desperation, I reached for a tube that just so happened to match the earrings I had on (!).
If you’re ever at a loss for lip gloss and can’t decide on a color to wear, try a shade that matches a pair of colorful earrings.
In my case the color was Make Up For Ever Glossy Full Couleur Gloss in #3, a creamy coral with a ton o’ shine.
Check out the teeny sample tube (the full-size .33-oz tube costs $19).
Isn’t it cute?
Right now Sephora has a set of three Glossy Full Couleur Glosses on sale for $35 (a $57 value) that comes with full-size tubes in #3 (coral), #1 (cherry) and #4 (fuchsia).
I’m not exactly sure why the matching lip gloss/earrings combo trick works, but I’m guessing that the pops of similar color in such close proximity reinforce the presence of the primary shade — HA! Listen to me sounding like I have any idea what I’m talking about.
Highlight of your Thursday?
What was yours?
I think mine was the few minutes I spent checking out the new Paul & Joe fall makeup collection (codenamed Collection Sparkles) online.
What do you think of the packaging? The navy blue Siamese kitty lipstick/eyeshadow set is hella calling my name, ME-OW!
