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. ;-)
