Next time, may I suggest a little bronzer and eye brow pencil to go along with that brilliant lip! I think you might have liked the nude and you could have definitely mixed it with the pink shade in the duo. To be honest, these days, reds scare me to purchase but when they are included I end blotting down well and saying "that's not too bad." Maybe you will like it more next time you try.
++thanks for the tips. As you can see you've been SO helpful already!! AS for the Nude shade I'd have to see it in person. The PInk and Rose are paler than my natural lip shade and sometimes that isn't as great on fair skin. Lighter shades can be nice if they have some vibrancy to them otherwise I find they wash out the face.
I set the vitamix on the counter and will read recipes and watch the DVD. I will get a little shopping list together for the weekend ingredients.
++start slow so you don't end up with a ton of stuff to have to work with. I liked the tomato soup I had made in it. I'm in the market for a large dutch oven right now but don't want to spend $$$ on a Le Crueset.
I wore one of the buttercreams today. I like the texture since it's not gooey and sticky, nice taste that I think is vanilla, but like anything else these days has limited staying power. I like the shade, very sheer and applies better with a balm on first since it initially looks a little streaky before smoothing out. I will try all the shades and as of now I have no regrets buying.
++I have one shade and really like it. was thinking of going back for a second. I have Sassy Sorbet and was thinking of Punchy Melon. Do you have PM?
I received the Too Faced Melted lipsticks and I know two shades are way too bright/bold but the first two shades are what I like to wear. For $26.00 for 4 smaller sizes is worth it since I've been wanting to try and I will give the other two away.
++I had checked those out when they first hit the stores. I did not find a shade I liked enough to buy. Good thing you can give some away. I cannot often do that so things feel more wasted.
