Sultry Mauve

Buxom Bold Gel Lipstick in Sultry Mauve, Express Top, Banana Republic Skirt (previous year but similar here and here), Jimmy Choo Heels (also perfect in suede for fall), Etienne Aigner Bag, Peggy Lind Necklace

Here is look number two wearing Buxom's Bold Gel Lipstick in Sultry Mauve. What I love most about this subtle color is while it has a hint of purple, it is still great for everyday - even the office. As a general color rule, olive green is well complimented by purple but straight up purple lipstick is not so great! Buxom has all the most flattering shades in the reds, purples, nudes and pinks which is why I was still able to find the perfect shade of lipstick to match my skirt.

Happy Saturday!

Voodoo Spice

Here is my first of three looks in which I want to show you guys how a lip color can transform a look. This outfit is pretty summery since it's still warm in California, but by wearing a dark wine lip color, (perfectly matched to my romper thanks to the 30 lip shades from the new Buxom lipstick collection!) it makes it feel more fall-ish. I would say the heavy eyeliner has the same effect but of course it's kind of my go-to eye makeup year round.

There are a few amazing things about the Buxom Bold Gel Lipsticks that you might not expect! Like how fantastic the lipsticks smell, how the lipsticks are split into two groups - satin and matte, or how the tubes are magnetic and the lid just snaps back on. Each shade is moisturizing as well (especially the satin nude shades) which I really appreciate as it makes it easier to apply when I'm on the go. And when you rub off the lipstick, perhaps to switch lip shades or before a meal, your lips will be left feeling soft and smooth.  

Stay tuned for the next two looks!

Line in the Sand

Sorry it's so late guys but I've been really busy! Here is my second to last post we shot in Hawaii. I really love monochrome neutrals for any time of year. So if you're going somewhere tropical (or maybe you live somewhere tropical) I hope this look inspires you :)

Have a lovely day!
