Long time, no see my friends. I am really sorry about this spontaneous little break from the blog. To be completely honest, the tragic events in this world for the past weeks have really shaken me to the core and causes me to take some time off from the blog and really think about all of this. I was overwhelmed, felt so powerless and all of these beauty, fashion or lifestyle topics just felt so unimportant compared to what was going on in the rest of the world. I got discouraged, if you will… and it has taken until today to finally get back to blogging, because not talking about the little happy things in life and concentrating on the negative isn’t the right solution either. So let’s get back to talking about the fun things!
Let’s talk beauty again. If fall & winter mean one thing makeup wise to me, than it’s some serious dark lipstick time. Every fall, there is this change in lipstick preference. Colours get darker, more cool toned & dustier. But since I am a pretty light skin type and blond haired, some colours can look a little overwhelming on me and all you see is one bright red lip (The struggle is real!). I found the perfect lipstick colour for just that problem – a color that is totally everyday & work appropriate and perfect for those who want to dip a toe into the dark lipstick waters – it is Wet n’ Wild “In the Flesh”.
It is really tough to capture the true color of a lipstick in photos and I have to say that “In the flesh” looks a lot mauvier and a little darker in person. Especially in the first picture it almost looks like a nude, which I promise to you, it is not. A great color for dark lipstick beginners and very everyday appropriate.
Btw, you can find Wet’nWild Lipsticks at Walmart & Target in the US & Canada and at Famila Stores in Germany – they are super affordable and compare to Mac Lipsticks in quality!
