summer=hot pink & peach.

{ Stila, Gladiola Convertible Color }

I am somewhat of a product junkie...and by somewhat, I mean, it's an issue. I L-O-V-E makeup (all products in general...working for Aveda, being a makeup artist for Salon Lux & having a Sephora right upstairs doesn't help in this addiction what-so-ever).
I've decided after seeing HOT pink all over the blogs that I needed my own attempt at it. Et voi la, Nars Schiap. OBSESSED (sorry for the all caps), but I cannot even tell you how many compliments I got on my lipstick today!
Next would be my search for the perfect peachy cheek color! I first got a sample of Bobbi Brown's Cabo Coral with a friend when down in Santa Barbara at Nordstrom's (so sad, no Bobbi Brown around these parts). The Bobbi color is perfection, kicking myself for not just buying it on the spot.....was debating ordering, then yesterday found Gladiola from Stila and found it to be a comparable substitute (same price), no shipping.
So folks, I've got my hot pink & peach for summer....and I am super happy about it! Would definitely recommend both products (although looks like Gladiola is sold out on & Sephora site :-(
Happy makeup hunting!

* off for a 1 year anniversary weekend with my baby (can you believe it's been a year)...we're doing a little stay-cation if you will. Pics to come!

i am LOVIN this hot pink trend. It is soooo funny to see hot pink lips especially for the summer. I've always been a paint the town red kinda girl with my red lipstick but I am falling for the pink shades this summer too!

I'd have to agree, I've been rockin' the occasional matte red lip for a few years now, but am HOOKED on this bright pink. Edged into it with Nars "roman holiday", and now full throttle with Nars "schiap". Happy lipstick shopping :-)
