I apologize for not having posted anything new for the last nearly two weeks!

The thing is, I’m swamped. Recently, our store in Ala Moana has been getting very, very lean staffing-wise and we’re down to three managers and one sales associate: me. I’ve been working long hours every week because we simply don’t have enough coverage otherwise.

For the next two weeks, our store manager will be away,…

Red Lips District: Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick in Stoplight Red

Red Lips District: Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick in Stoplight Red

Last of the three el cheap0 lipsticks from the drugstore: Wet n Wild’s Megalast Lipstick in Stoplight Red!

Stoplight Red is described as a true, blue-based red.

Like the other Wet n Wild lipsticks I own, this is impressively pigmented. It’s dry and it tugs a little during application. The shape of the bullet makes it difficult to apply straight from the bullet. I quickly swiped it on, then used…

Hautelook’s Korres sale started this morning at 8AM PST!

It’s a great sale: a nice mix of skincare and makeup. No body butters or lip butters, though, which is probably what they’re best known for.

They have a cheek butter trio, which includes all the colors (full sized) I talked about in my previous post, for $22. Twenty-two!! For all three! The retail price for these are $25 EACH, so this is…

Pixi Correction Concentrate: Brightening Peach

Pixi Correction Concentrate: Brightening Peach

Sometimes, I go looking for trouble. I’m talking about impulsive makeup purchases, of course.

I like to randomly open the Target app on my phone, and browse through the makeup section. I look at new releases, and permanent collections, and I especially pay attention to Target-only brands.

One day, while doing this, I came across this Pixi Correction Concentrate in Brightening Peach. The reviews…

Red Lips District: Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick in Red Velvet

I have another not-quite-red from the drugstore for you today!

Meet Wet n Wild’s Megalast lipstick in Red Velvet:

I know, it looks like a pretty standard red in the tube. It even swatches like a red.

But on me, it looks like a strawberry pink red.

I’ve never tried a pinky-red before, and I’m quite pleased with how it looks on my skintone. I paired it with theBalm’s Instain blush in Toile, and…

Red Lips District: Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Purty Persimmon

Red Lips District: Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Purty Persimmon

The name of this lipstick annoys me. “Purty” Persimmon, really? There’s nothing wrong with the word “pretty” while there’s quite a number of things wrong with the word “purty.” It sounds sloppy. Am I being a pedantic snob? Probably.

I was going about my business earlier, wandering around on the Internet, when I realized that it’s Friday. It’s also been several weeks since my last Red Lips…
