Erin’s pop-of-pink lip with this drop-dead gorgeous sunny dress is what makes this look “the look.”

Nivea A Kiss of Cherry Fruity Lip Care with SPF 10

It’s a fact: my lips get really chapped year-round. However, I recently stumbled on Nivea’s A Kiss of Cherry Lip Balm, and it has been a breakthrough beauty buy. My lips have never been softer or smoother, but what I love is that this version gives you a subtle red tint. It’s the perfect I’m-not-wearing-makeup look for daytime. I’m good to go out the door after adding a few coats of Maybelline’s Volum’ Express Falsies Flared Mascara (my favorite). Being low-maintenance has never looked better.

Lipstick Love: Kate Moss Edition

21 Mar

I must admit, when it comes to models, Kate Moss has long been my favorite. I think my favorite part about the royal wedding was that it produced a meme that said “There is only one Kate in London.” Her look is always edgy and effortless, and I think she is ¬†the most versatile supermodel in the world (her androgynous LOVE cover, anyone?). I was so excited when I first heard she was developing a lipstick line with Rimmel London. Below are the two colors I bought from the line. One’s an in-your-face red (the one Kate wears in the ad) and the other is a more neutral everyday pink-orange. I love them both!
