Two Pretty Summer-to-Fall Transition Lip Colors

Hi everyone!
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 (left), and Summer Sunset (right)

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! :) 

Daily Nuggets!
  • 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!

  4. These are beautiful, I love having casual reds to wear to work. I, personally, have been checking out the new mauve-themed shades from Maybelline and they looks fantastic. I wish the mattes would hit my drugstores, but it seems I'm fated to wait forever and have to really scope them out after everyone else grabs them.

  5. that summer sunset shade is so gorgeous! I love how its a stand alone lipstick that can be used with a very neutral and subtle eye or even a bolder one! I must get it the next time I go shopping!

  8. Peachy Scene looks better on the tube, but when it comes to the swatches, Summer Sunset gets my vote. They are both lovely shades though. Thanks for the review, Emily. :)

  10. Hello! It's been so long I haven't been around and did not know you were pregnant!! Oh my gosh, that's such great news (for me, because 36 weeks, of course you're nearly at the end!) Congratulations, blessings, and all the good I can wish for you! I'll stick around now that I'm back to reading blogs!
    Oh and the lippies are super pretty! I prefer Summer sunset on you :)

  13. Summer Sunset has been one of my favorite lip colors for a while. It's just a very wearable color that will look good on a lot of people, and it's so smooth and comfortable!!

  17. Could that we now have days once you tend not to feel fired up. We've been at this time there too. Regardless of graphs, Makeup Tips not necessarily sensation your very best sucks. However if sporting your very best attire isn't ample and you also actually want to raise your own spirits and appearance your very best, here's a few facial foundation ideas to do this.

  25. Hey Emily, I saw this post a while back and bought these two shades off your recommendation, I have since fallen in love with them. Sadly they have both been discontinued. Since you have a rather extensive makeup collection, if you have the time, could you please help me in my hunt for dupes? If I find any I will let you know.

    Thanks a bunch,
    Kim
