I am ALWAYS creeping on some beauty product or another, and back when I was working at my day job, I could justify a lil’ spending spree online or at Sephora or MAC pretty quickly. The pain of sitting at a desk could only be soothed by a little retail therapy.
Nowadays, I’m lucky to be able to buy a new lip balm, so I either have to a) wait for beauty events that I can cover for this here blog and/or She Does The City (where I also write, dontcha know?) or b) get a tiny sample and milk it forever or c) cry and look at pictures of the pretty pretty stuff on the internet that I can’t afford.
So here’s a roundup of everything I’m obsessed with right now. The longer I am unemployed, the more of these you will likely see!
Hoooooo-boy. Did you see this? Are you kidding me?! I love love love my Glow Kit in Gleam, and was praying for a new one to come out that spanned across the blue-lavender-silver spectrum. And here it is….LIMITED EDITION and of course I am crying hysterically because I really can’t get it. Wait a few months and these bad boys are going to be like $100 on eBay.
Green and Blue Lipsticks – Various
KALE – Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Summer Collection
TIME – Urban Decay – Alice Through The Looking Glass Collection
Ok, I know…these shades make me look full bananas. AND I already have a few “unconventional” shades that I never wear. BUT! These are so, so freaking pretty I just can’t help but swatch them every time I get the chance. LOVERLY. I want to look like an algae-encrusted swamp witch and that is what feminism is all about!

Verde – by NEST fragrances
Summer perfumes to me are usually kind of fruity, or the kind of heavy, intoxicating florals that linger on the air. This summer, my two most lusted after perfumes are ones that smell green and fresh, like a freshly cut bunch of herbs.
