Game Changer: I found the best (cheap) red lipstick!

I've long admired ladies who can pull off red lipstick on an everyday basis.  Even though I'm old enough to have been her babysitter, I'll admit that Taylor Swift's makeup routine makes her one of my personal style inspirations.

it makes her white shirt and wayfarers look fancy, doesn't it?

Since becoming pregnant and gradually outgrowing my button downs and skinny jeans (Make it stop! I had enough of a chest to begin with!), I've started to rely on little tricks like a red lip to make me feel pretty on a morning where I'd otherwise just feel too big for my clothes.  However, it's hard to find a shade that works with pale skin and dark hair without feeling as though it says "Hey everybody - Haley got some lipstick!"  I also don't like spending lots of money on cosmetics because I am a cheapskate when I wanna be.

That's why I was pretty pumped to discover the Sonia Kashuk Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Rosey Nude.  It's only $7.59 and goes on more like a lipliner than a sheer balm, which look lovely but don't stay put on me. You can get it at Target, and I highly recommend it!

Here I am wearing it at work, not looking quite like Taylor, but close enough.  It's a little brighter in person, but I am terrible at selfies and felt like a fool taking it in my cube:

And no, this is not a sponsored post.  I'm not going to get rich recommending this to you - I just get excited about important issues such as these.

P.S. You can't really see it, but I'm wearing this Live in Pink by Suzanna Dai necklace c/o LOFT and it's so chic and nicely made.  The proceeds benefit breast cancer research, and I highly suggest you check out the line.  It comes in a big fancy box, and with all of the usual discounts at LOFT, it would be a nice Christmas gift if you don't want to spend much but like to look as though you did. ;-)
