DIY lipstick repair

thalia nyx cosmeticsIf you watched my Update/2013 HG vlog, then you know that this year I fell in LOVE with NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Thalia. It’s a brownish-pink shade, with a satiny finish. It can be applied sheerly with a little bit of gloss, or layered heavily for the full impact of the color… whichever floats your boat.

So one fine day I inadvertently left Thalia in my car. I took it out & allowed it to “rest” for 24 hours before using it again, hoping that it would solidify at its base. No such luck. A few days later, it broke off mid-stoke. Fortunately for Thalia, I  was able to catch her before she fell to her doom. And because I love her so, I continuted to use her BOOTLEG & ALL. Then a few days ago I decided enough was enough & I had to do something different.

Now I know what you’re thinking… “Sham Thalia costs $4.00, just buy another one!” And if I didn’t live 45-60 minutes away from the nearest Ulta, I probably would have. Instead I decided to salvage the remaining lipstick by de-tubing it, placing it in a jar & being applying it with a lip brush. Until I remembered that I already owned a color almost identical to Thalia. *SMH… this is a PJ moment* Seriously though, do y’all remember Trendy Mauve by Lancome? I reviewed it here last year. Well Trendy Mauve & Thalia are… TWINSIES 😉

Lipstick Update!

14 Dec

I am pleased to announce that after months of searching, I have finally found my lipstick soulmate. *trumpets sound & light shines down from heaven* I feel as though Trendy Mauve (by Lancome) was made just for me! It’s a creamy, caramel-pink color & is neither too light nor too bold. It has a creamy consistency, glides on easily & doesn’t feel dry like most lipsticks do. Although Lancome boasts about long-term wear, I can’t really corroborate. It does require reapplication, but that doesn’t bother me. It’s available at your local Lancome counter for $22 a pop, although I got mine as a free gift w/ my fragrance purchase. And as with most things in life, it’s also available on Amazon. It compliments my complexion so well, that it was difficult for me to swatch, so please refer to the pics below.
