Ever since an “incident” about a decade ago involving free cosmopolitans (long story short, but I hadn’t eaten anything beforehand and weighed 98 pounds at the time), I haven’t been a big boozer, but I am a total lush (as you well know) when it comes to makeup.
I can’t restrain myself around colors like Becca Glossy Lip Tint in Mimosa ($23).
Seeing how I only just recently got wind of shimmery golden bronze Mimosa, it might be a little premature to declare it “The best Becca Glossy Lip Tint evah.”
But I’m still doing it.
Like Becca’s other Glossy Lip Tints in Frappe, Colada and Cherry Bomb, Mimosa lavishes lips in wet, glossy color, but it’s even more pigmented and hydrating on the lips. As a matter of fact, with Mimosa I haven’t felt the need to start with a layer of lip balm worn underneath.
Doesn’t the color fit the season? Here I’m wearing it (the pic up top) with a wash of Boots Khaki eyeshadow, but I can also see it looking lovely with eye colors in gold, bronze and maybe even teal.
The rich, glossy color and hydrating formula go a long way toward helping me overlook the $23 Becca is asking for Mimosa. If you like wearable, long-lasting bronze glosses named after rather excellent beverages, you just might agree. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
Lunchtime at Sephora
I had lunch plans with a treadmill today but changed ’em at the last minute (what can I say? I’m finicky). I felt like something less…challenging, so I stopped by Sephora instead.
This tube of YSL’s classic Touche Eclat concealer was calling my name.
I briefly tried it once a long time ago and remember it not fully J-Wow’ing me then, but I’ve heard from so many women who swear by it, so I thought I would give it a second try.
Have you used it before? What did you think?
