Two things I will always buy - lipstick and nail polish. Two things I bought recently that I can't stop using - lipsticks and nail polishes!! Sometimes I like buying things I know I don't have to try on - I never run the risk of a lipstick being too small or a nail polish just not fitting right - some things just always make me feel better! Don't you feel the same way??
I certainly didn't need another pink lipstick to add to my collection, but I couldn't pass up this absolutely perfect pink! I have nothing but rave reviews for this color and the finish is matte, but again not like regular matte's because there is a creamy finish to it, which makes sense since it's part of the "creamy mattes" collection. This might be a bit odd, but I also really love the smell!
Before I talk about this gorgeous color, if you are a fan of MAC products please tell me you're part of their "recycle" program. I can't stress how awesome this program is - you return ANY 6 MAC products in their original containers and you get to pick a lip stick or eye shadow of your choice - it's free and basically how I get all my MAC lipsticks. I was in the mood for a nude color, that had a little more kick to it and this color was the prefect fit. There's a little orange tint to it which I like. It's part of their matte collection, but it has a nice finish and doesn't flake on your lips.
Before I get into the colors I'm loving for Summer I have to share my thoughts on Gel Setter by Essie. I picked this up after seeing a commercial - I'm a really good consumer!! I have to say it's a double whammy in terms of a top coat because you get the shiny effects of it being a gel top coat without the threat of LED lights, but it also dries incredibly fast! Not in seconds, but after about 4 minutes my nails were completely dry - that I can live with! I won't say it's exactly the same as having a gel manicure because I feel that my nails are harder when I get them done at the salon, but I really do like it and I've used it with OPI colors as well as Essie like they recommend.
