Not a lot going on so far this week, though tomorrow we're going on a hike with S.'s research group members, and then tomorrow night we're going out for dinner and drinks with some friends - should be a good time! I'm excited; it's always nice to get together with people. And any excuse for dressing up and drinks is fantastic. And Zigzag Cafe, which we've been to before, has an amazing bartender. Good good good!
I've been wanting to try more intense lip colors lately (as in, any at all, rather than the usual nothing/clear balm I have on). Today I wore Tarte's lip stain in Enchanted (review here) - all day - and not just around my apartment where no one could see me (besides S., who seems to think I look awesome no matter what absurd kind of makeup I have on. I guess he's a keeper, hehe). It's prolly not dark at all for people who are used to wearing bright lip colors, but for me, it's definitely a bold, rosy pink and a departure from my normal wear. I toned down my eye makeup and just used liner (black and plum), mascara, and a bit of blush to go with the look. I always feel like people who normally see me, will be puzzled by the sudden use of lipstick/lip products, but I guess I shouldn't really be bothered. Also, on the plus side, even though I had to reapply every two hours, the stain actually does do a good job of keeping lips moisturized. The color doesn't sink into lip lines, either, which I really appreciate. And the color intensity doesn't get out of control with every re-application. Win!
And to brighten your day: a bit of cuteness. I love owls, and this (short) video may be the cutest thing ever.
Have a good weekend!
