Winter Lip Remedy

Sorry for the holiday hiatus, but you have to understand.. I work in retail and the crazier half of my family were visiting. 
I hope you accept my apology. 

Anyways, after Buffalo was ravaged by mother nature, the temperature drastically dropped here in NEPA. There were a few days of truly disgusting single digit temps, and I don't know many people who were prepared. And as a result my lips dried out like a raisin. (There's a visual for ya)
So I present to you my remedy for dry, cracked winter lips.

GOLD DUST + The Nudes by Maybelline (First Impressions)

So I read about this Maybelline Palette.. The Nudes online about a month and a half ago. And have been on the hunt for one ever since. 
For a while I had been eyeing it up at a local CVS, and then it came... the 25% off coupon. 
I rushed to CVS, turned the corner where the Maybelline display was... and there it was. 
An empty display. 

Then I went to Walgreens. No luck. 
Then Walmart. No luck. 
And then Target. And there it was. Cheaper here than the 3 stores I had visited. 
Needless to say I was happy. So happy I actually squealed a little bit. 
I'm not lying. 
My boyfriend thought and still thinks that I am completely out of my mind because of how excited I get over makeup & a good deal. 
But there it was at Target for $9.99

Recent Purchases

Soo, I haven't posted anything in a couple of weeks (my bad ya'll)

5-Minute Makeup

Anytime there's a chance for me to get a few extra minutes of sleep in the morning, I take advantage. That being said, a lot of mornings I'm rushing to make sure I get breakfast, pack my lunch and necessary snacks and leave the house with just enough time to get a coffee. Makeup is usually neglected or done in the dark of an almost crowded bus. 
A few weeks ago I started adding this to my morning routine and not only have I been able to get my daily caffeine fix, I even remembered my headphones. 
Un. Real. 

Any moisturizer, primer, and foundation of your choice would work in this case.
I use 1-2 pumps of my moisturizer, a dab of primer and about a nickel sized amount of my foundation all placed on the back of my hand. Mix them together and apply either with clean fingers or a foundation brush. 
Ladies. This takes all of maybe 95 seconds now that I've gotten used to the routine. 
Un. Real. 
Then I usually do a few coats of my mascara, fill in my brows and maybe add some blush and I'm done in less than 5 minutes. Always.

October Favorites

Hi pretty.
Happy November ! My favorite month. In case you were wondering.
October flew by, and with it just a few products that I couldn't live without.

 1. Mainstays Pumpkin Pie Candle
I am in love with this candle. I have it in my room and after a half hour or so my room smells like a bakery.. just full of delicious spices and sweetness, UGH.. it's just great.
2, Mainstays Apple Pumpkin Candle
After I fell in love with the Pumpkin Pie scent, I had to run back and grab this one. It's not as sweet as the pumpkin pie but I love it just the same. As soon as the first one ran out, I immediately started to burn this one and again, I have no complaints. You can purchase them both at Walmart.
3. Chapstick in Pumpkin Pie.
Are you beginning to see a trend here? I bought this for like a buck because.. I mean, you never DON'T need chapstick. Threw it in my purse and forgot about it for a few days. Then when I reached in, I pulled it out and surprised myself. It smells exactly like pie. That's about it.
