I'm so very late on these as they have been hyped up over the blogsphere and YouTube-sphere (?) for quite some time. I find that I really like NYX lip products and these two do not disappoint. I picked up the Butter Glosses in Vanilla Cream Pie and Strawberry Parfait, which I am currently wearing to death. The glosses have a very smooth texture, smell like a sugar cookie and build up quite nicely. And recently, I purchased the Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo, a deep red color that is great for fall (and I've been searching far and wide for the hot pink shade, Addis Ababa). The lip cream has a satin-y like texture at first, but dries within minutes to a matte. Once it dries, it doesn't transfer at all! Both of these lip products last for a few hours and I find I only have to touch up a few times throughout the day.
Pomegranate Limeade from Trader Joe's.
Delicious. I've realized that many of the Trader Joe's juices smell a little weird, but taste quite amazing (Is this just me?). It's a bit sour but I like sour things, and it has a sweet kick to it that I adore. I pick this up literally every time I go grocery shopping and it lasts for about 2 days after I open it. It's that good.
I know you're thinking " Seriously, you watch this? "Yes, I know it seems absolutely ridiculous to watch YouTube videos about a group of 17-18 year old LA kids, living their last summer together. And to be honest, it is a bit ridiculous, but I actually enjoyed it. I like seeing people have fun and as I've never been to California, I've always wondered what summer is like over there (I mean, it's like always summer, right?). There are a few 20-minute episodes, but most are only about 4-8 minutes long, making them easy to watch while doing my makeup or cleaning up my apartment. My brain has probably turned to mush while watching this, but I'll live.
