2013 Year in Review

2013 Year in Review

Here we are, another year has passed and it’s almost 2014!

2013 was overall a good year for me. The fact that it was about 10 trillion times better than 2012 made it an excellent year actually. I have no idea what 2014 will bring in terms of my career. Will I still blog full-time or return to work? I don’t know, and honestly my opinion about the subject changes nearly daily. It remains to be seen.

22 Days of Red Lipstick Featuring MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Everyday Diva

Red Lipstick Collage

Well we are winding down on the 22 Days of Red Lipstick series, can you believe it? Just one more left after today then it’s 2014!

Today I’ve got one called MAC Everyday Diva. This is a newer shade from a newer line of Mineralize Rich Lipsticks which came out this year. This line includes twelve shades and they have a medium coverage and tons of moisture.

They come in a tube with a magnetic cap, which is pretty fun. The formula is smooth, lightweight and feels really comfortable on the lips. Everyday Diva is a good starter red since it’s not UBER bright and intense and can be built up.

Happy Boxing Day to those in Canada and the UK!

Today I’ve got another more wearable red shade for those who might be scared of a super intense red. It’s called bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Call The Shots.

I kind of love the tubes in this line. You slide the silver button down and the lipstick slides out from the cap. Very cool design and it’s pretty secure feeling.

Merry Christmas! I hope you have a wonderful day spent with family and/or friends and get everything your heart desires!

Today I am showing my very favorite red lipstick of all-time on the 18th day of the 22 Days of Red Lipstick series. The shade is MAC Russian Red.

Me and Russian Red go waaaaaaaay back. To the 90′s. Once I discovered this shade all other shades just didn’t quite stand up to it. In a word it’s superb.
