First, the lip combination. It's nothing flashy, but I really like the shade this ended up being, and the texture was awesome:
I used NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bettina, then put a swipe of Fresh's Sugar Plum Lip Treatment on top, and then a dab of an Avon lipgloss in Nude on top.
P.S., I may have found my Holy Grail mascara duo; Prestige My Biggest Lashes with a little bit of Stila's Major Lash on the outer corner. Check it out!
I'm going to have to try this out after having curled my lashes to see what that does!
Next up is my new necklace; I got it on super-clearance at Macy's, it's a Rachel Roy design. It spoke to me when I saw it in the store, but I've been wearing it with EVERYTHING lately, and it goes with a surprising number of things! I have been in a bit of a jewelry-rut, so this is helping me crawl back out again.
Now I have a bit of a comparison for you. I have Cover Girl's lipstick in Romance, and I love it to death. If you've been following the blog for awhile, you have probably seen it in a few Face of the Day posts. I know a few of you own it as well; it's a popular shade from the collection. I had this nagging feeling that it was really similar to NARS' Bettina, so I pulled out a few of those nude-pink shades to compare it with.
Top to Bottom in all of the photographs are NYX Round Lipstick in Thalia, Cover Girl Lip Perfection in Romance, NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Sex Machine, and finally NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bettina:
Finally, I caught all three of the cats in a pile on the couch the other day. It was too cute to not take a photo of!
Yes, I am a dork for cats. I love when they snuggle!
So there you go, a lot of somewhat random things that I felt like sharing with you guys, all cobbled together into one giant mish-mash of a post. Hope you have all enjoyed your weekends!
