Maroon Meow (OOTD)

picture898

Hey y’all! It’s definitely feeling like fall outside, and I am LOVING IT. After the uber hot and gross weather we had those first few weeks of the semester, I was dying to get myself into some cute sweaters/leggings/scarves/boots/lipsticks! (I’m really passionate about fall fashion.) Now that the weather has finally cooled down. I’m taking advantage. Of course it still warms up too much by midday, and I end up pushing up my sleeves in a huff, but I refuse to stop dressing so cute!

Today my friends and I decided to all wear maroon pants just for shits and giggles. Now, I really don’t like how my maroon pants fit, so I cheated and wore my new maroon leggings instead. #ohwell. (Note that the leggings look more red toned in person than they do in the pic. I really dont like plummy maroons.)

What I Wore:

Sweater: Forever 21+
Leggings: Forever 21+
Combat Boots: Payless
Lipstick: Rimmel in Bordeaux 124

This sweater is just so stinkin cute! When I saw this online last season I absolutely HAD to have it. I am a hardcore cat person, and this just spoke to me. Also it’s super long and cozy, and it’s also not too thick or thin of a material. Basically, this sweater is purrfection.

When I was planning this outfit in my head, I knew I had to pull out one of my favorite fall lipsticks from Rimmel. I only wish it were a matte finish instead of cream, but with a few rounds of blotting it stays put. For some reason, I find it really hard to find good deep red lipsticks. Berries and plums are super prevalent, but a dark brick red alludes me. It’s one of my goals to find the perfect fall red this season. If you have any suggestions please let me know!

Well that’s it for this post. Thanks for reading! I hope you’re enjoying the beautiful weather!

Pumpkin Picking (OOTD)

Image

On Tuesday my roommates and I went to a local fall festival to pick some pumpkins! This is what I wore. The weather had finally cooled down so I could wear some booties and a sweater.

Image

Image

What I wore:

Sweater: Lane Bryant
Skinnies: Forever 21+
Booties: Ebay
Pumpkin: Grim’s Fall Festival

I apologize for not posting too much lately. Life’s been moving faster than I can keep up. And I’ve decided that I need to keep myself in check before I go posting on the internet. Also, my apartment’s internet connection has been going in and out anyways so on Tuesday when I was going to post this I couldn’t.

Hope you’re having a great autumn so far!

Lipstick Obsession

Image

Let’s be honest for a moment. I have a lipstick obsession. I now own around 30 lipsticks and it might be getting out of hand. In my defense, I didn’t really have any fall shades and I felt the need to expand upon my collection. Here are seven lip products that I am totally in love with for this fall season! At the end of this post there will be swatches of all the products I mentioned.

1. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
005 Crush

This is the first stain lip product I’ve tried and I’ve got to say I’m impressed! I went with a safer berry color that is very wearable. It has a slight minty smell that I liked but it might bother others. It was really easy to apply because of it’d crayon shaped tip. I am wearing it now and while it stays smooth on my lips, it hasn’t really budged. This is a great product!

2 – 3. Revlon Lip Butters
Berry Smoothie and Red Velvet

I LOVE these lip butters. I have six now. These two are a bit deeper toned so they’re perfect for when you want to wear a nice fall shade on your lips without committing to a super deep lipstick. They’re super comfortable on the lips and they’re actually pretty pigmented and longwearing for a lip balm. These are my go-to lip products for any season!

4 – 5. Maybelline Color Sensationals
Violet Intrigue and Midnight Plum

I decided today that I needed more purple based lipsticks in my life so I went out and got these. They’re both really dark plums, but that’s ok. The violet is a very true purple and I think it will be a great vivid shade to wear in the colder months and even into spring. The Midnight Plum is wonderfully dark! Much darker than I had expected, but I love the vampy look for fall and I can’t wait to pair it with both intense and neutral eyes. This line of lipsticks really is sensational and I recommend any shade in this line.

6 – 7. Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks
124 Bordeaux and Kate Moss 011

I actually really like Rimmel lipsticks and I feel like they are super underrated. These are the the first two deeper shades I ever tried and I really love how both look. Bordeaux is a super rich berry color while 011 is just a deep brick red. Both are incredibly smooth and wearable despite their dramatic tones.

Left to Right: Revlon Lip Stain in Crush, Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie, Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet, Maybelline Color Sensational in Violet Intrigue, Maybelline Color Sensational in Midnight Plum, Rimmel Lasting Finish in 124 Bordeaux, Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in 011.

This a pretty assorted collection of fall shades in not only lipsticks but some more sheer and easy to wear options as well. I have acquired a bit of a lip product obsession but I love to have some pretty options! This year I’ve been trying to step out of my comfort zone and play around a little bit when it comes to my daily makeup. Lip colors has become one of my favorite ways to do so.

So what’s your favorite fall lip product?

Feeling Better (OOTD)

Aviary Photo_130239353475824587

It’s starting to get dark so early now! I guess I need to get my pictures done sooner in the day, haha.

The beginning of fall is starting to creep in, and with it is coming my better mood. I performed with the marching band and my colorguard this past weekend, and I’ve been riding a wave of good feelings since. I’m hoping the good mood sticks around just as long as the cooler weather.

I love fall SO much. It’s by far my absolute favorite season. I love the holidays, the fashion, the makeup, the crisp air, the changing leaves, the tv shows, the warm drinks, EVERYTHING. Today was finally cold enough for a more autumn-esque outfit with skinnies, a sweater, and a beanie. AND NOT TO MENTION MY NEW DARK LIPSTICK! (I may or may not be in love with dark lips).

What I wore:

Sweater – Kmart
Beanie – 5 Below (I think?)
Shoes (Not Pictured) – Converse
Lipstick!!! – Rimmel Lasting Finish in 124 Bordeaux

Anyway I’ve been having a few good days, and today I wanted to wear some bold lipstick and a hat so I did. And I felt pretty good. Also isn’t the lace on this sweater awesome?

Thursday was a very low point for me and since Friday I’ve been going nowhere but up. I hope this trend keeps going. Hope you guys have a good week as well!
