Lip Lust: Laqa & Co. Lil’ Lip Duo Pinkman & Lambchop

Laqa & Co. Lil’ Lip Duo

Most of my girlfriends are strictly lipbalm-only for everyday, but once in a while they’ll throw a curveball at me and show up to go shopping with a neon lipstick on. I don’t blame them. It’s fun to try on a different hat sometimes.

When the Laqa & Co. Lil’ Lip Duo in Pinkman & Lambchop ($16 US) showed up on my desk, one of the first thoughts I had was that it would make a perfect gift for any one of my besties.




Morsels of the Week ft. NARS Nails, Tarte Skincare, MAC Lips

NARS Mots Bleus

I’m in Seattle right now working at the physical location of t+j Designs for my internship. The month that I’ve been here has flown by, and I’ve had such a enriching experience seeing so many different aspects of how the company runs.

When we take photos of our cute rings, we like to make sure we have on a fun nail color too. This past week I wore the NARS Nail Polish in Mots Bleus ($20 US). It’s a gorgeous greyed-out kind of teal that works so nicely as a Summer to Fall transition color. NARS recently reformulated their polishes, but to be honest I don’t notice much of a difference, because I’ve always been a fan.



Lip Lust: Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss review

Opening a fresh tube of gloss or swiping on a brand new lipstick is one of the best feelings. Maybe not quite as extreme as applying a new identity, but uplifting nonetheless.

Imagine my delight at this stunning array of glosses to play with this Summer. Tarte’s newest formula, the Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss ($19 US) are fun and oh-so-shiny for the prettiest look.



Lip Lust: Hard Candy Ombre Lipstick

Hard Candy Ombre Lipstick

As someone who obsesses over the tiniest variations in color, ombre is a trend that I personally am not giving up. I adore the subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle!) gradation that really expresses how rich and diverse color is.

So of course, when I saw the new Hard Candy Ombre Lipsticks ($6 US), I was really intrigued and had my fingers crossed that the concept would translate well as a lip color.



Lip Lust: NARS Lip Gloss

NARS Lip Gloss New

Lipgloss is one of those beauty products that I use in phases. There are some periods where I can’t step out of the house without a layer of shine, but other times I won’t want that glossy look.

I recently watched a Youtube video of a makeup tutorial centered around a beautifully done-up glossy lip, so as of right now I’m back on the lip gloss train trying to emulate that look.
