As I am sure all of you have noticed, it is finally starting to warm up here in DC (I like to think I brought the warmth with me in my suitcase from Texas)! I truly feel like spring has finally arrived – fashion bloggers rejoice!
…but, believe it or not, this post is not about DCs current heat wave, it is about my new obsession. Lipstick. I know what you are thinking – Lacey you have never posted about beauty products before! My response – I know, I am clearly in love.
If you haven’t noticed, gone are the days of lipgloss that sticks to everything and in are the days of matte lipstick that adds a pop of color to your ensemble.
I have literally collected every shade I can get my hands on – deep red, hot pink, coral, pale pink, and many more – and although I love them all I must admit I have a favorite (shhh – don’t tell the others). NARS Heat Wave. It is the absolute perfect spring/summer shade. It is an organe-y red that literally seems to go with everything I put on!
The price is a bit much for those that love to run into CVS and grab a quick pop of color for $5 (it normally prices at about $24), but after that first swipe across your lips you will realize that you will get your moneys worth out of this baby.
