Hello lovelies! Boy howdy, we had a pretty big storm come through around midnight that knocked my power out for over an hour! Luckily all the survival tools were easy to find since we had a three day outage in February due to an ice storm. Which means that everything battery operated had fresh batteries. That is usually not the case around here. Naturally, as I went from room to room, what did I do? Flip on the light switch of course! Aarrghh!!!
Anyways, let’s talk about purple. I have a deep love for purple lipstick. I want to share with you my review of the Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lip Gel “”Little Pretty”. This was sold out at Sephora forever. I just realized I didn’t write it up earlier when I got it. Better late than never! Plus, any season is the right season for purple!!!!
I love the packaging of these lipsticks. It is magnetized, so there is no danger of the lid coming off even if it’s just thrown into your purse. And the color!!!! It is described as a “shimmering berry purple”. On me, it is more berry (boo!). But I still love it.
That looks pretty eggplant, doesn’t it?
You wouldn’t think the swatch would look like that, would you? If you look closely, you can see bits of shimmer. I believe that is why it isn’t a “vampy” purple. You cannot see it when applied to your lips. It does have a nice, shiny finish.
This is the second Marc Jacobs lipstick I own. This one, like the first, did not disappoint. At first swipe, it was rather light, but built up nicely. The formula is not drying at all, and very smooth to apply. I get 3-4 hours wear with no eating/drinking. It has a very light vanilla scent. Not at all overwhelming.
The gorgeous owl bracelet was lovingly handmade by one of my besties, Amie, for my birthday this year with amethyst and glass beads. She is a super talented jewelry designer who always creates the coolest things for me and all of her peeps. Lucky us!
If you have any favorite purple lippies, please share!
Again, thanks for reading! kxoxo
