Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Electric Orange lipstick

I saw ads for this Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Electric Orange lipstick in a few magazines, and wanted to try it.  Orange seemed like a fun alternative to red.
I have ended up using it a lot over the summer, but I was disappointed that the lipstick does not look as shiny on me as it it did in the ad photos.  It it matte, and a little waxy, and not as smooth and creamy as I expected and would like.  The shade is also a little duller.

Red Lobsters

I celebrated my birthday by visiting Sequoia National Forest.  On the way there, I had lunch with my family at Red Lobster in Bakersfield, California.  The lunch and service was great :)  

I decided to wear, of course, my red lobster skirt!
Later, while shopping at Kohl's, I received a compliment on my outfit :)

Wet & Wild lipstick

This is Wet & Wild lipstick in Breeze.  It glides on smoothly and has a pleasant scent.  It is a nice, neutral shade with a bit of shimmer.

Ulta Extreme Wear Matte Finish Mousse Foundation

I have tried mousse foundation in the past and loved the feel and effect, so I decided to try this one from Ulta, called Extreme Wear Matte Finish Mousse Foundation.  Unfortunately, I don't love this one.  It feels strange and looks like it sits on top of my skin, instead of blending and covering.

Feeling a little patriotic for an outing to the Hollywood American Legion.
I really love my new Eagle necklace by Mudd, it is such a statement piece!

Ulta Minerals Blush

Until recently, I did not know Ulta had it's own cosmetic brand.  I found this blush Ulta Minerals Blush in Tulip for just $3.00, and it is the perfect size for my makeup bag, and the perfect shade of pink for me!
