It's been awhile since I've explored the lipsticks in Maybelline's Color Sensational line, and there's no good reason for that. The lipsticks that I have from this line are pigmented, creamy, and feel good on the lips. So the last time I was at Ulta, I spent way too long looking over the various shade families, and ended up focusing on the "Red" collection. I found a couple of gorgeous new shades that I'm loving! I think they're great colors that aren't too light or too dark... making them beautiful options as you transition your summer looks to fall! :)

Peachy Scene has a bit of shimmer... I'm not normally a fan of shimmery lipsticks, but I think this one is so pigmented, the shimmer doesn't overwhelm the look. I think the tone is so beautiful! And I'm also kind of obsessed with Summer Sunset. It reminds me of a color that I used to love from this line called "Blushing Brunette" - but it's no longer available. Summer Sunset has the teeniest bit of shimmer (it's just barely detectable on the lipstick itself, but I can't see it on the lips), and has such a pretty soft red look on the lips. This would be a great option for people who want to try a red that isn't as "in your face" as most classic red lipsticks. I love it! On an unrelated note- I'm developing an obsession with matte lip colors as well. Look for a video on that in the near future! :)
- I need to get groceries.
- We have 2 new gliders in this house and Cupcake is usually in one of them during the morning, and the other at night.
- Bobbi Brown's "Beach" scent continues to grow on me.
- I saw this clip on Morning Express with Robin Meade today- CRACKED ME UP!!! And when the bulldog flops over- it kinda reminds me of myself trying to get out of bed.
- Today marks 36 weeks pregnant!
