Since learning that L’Oreal products are not cruelty free, I’ve been on the hunt for a mascara to replace the L’Oreal Telescopic that I used to use. After reading a number of positive reviews I decided to order Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara. Tarte products are cruelty free and formulated without parabens, mineral oils, and all the other nasties.
Dry lips. Ugh. For a lipstick lover dry lips are the worst. They are uncomfortable, even painful, stubborn, and not nice to look at. The climate in Yukon is exceptionally dry. Combine that with cold temperatures and electric heat and you’ve got the perfect recipe for dry, flaky lips.
I find myself reaching for lip gloss more and more as I age, especially in the cold months. My lips are much drier than ever before and lipstick is just not a good look for me most days.
My most recent Sephora order included the new Fenty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in the shade Fenty Glow which is described as a shimmering rose nude. The claim is that the gloss delivers shine and all three shades – Fenty Glow, Diamond Milk, and FU$$Y – flatter all skin tones. Fenty Glow certainly works with my pale complexion and I think it would be gorgeous on deeper skin tones as well.
My ride or die makeup products are mascara, blush, and some kind of lippy. I was just telling Mr. P&P the other night that those are my favourites and the ones I slap on if I only have seconds to spare. He was fascinated, I’m sure. Just in case you think it’s cruel of me to bore the pants off him like that, I had just sat through a half hour long retelling of the latest episode of Shameless he’d watched.
