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?
