I’m Rocking Tom Ford Lately

“I don’t pop Molly, I rock Tom Ford..” – so true, haha.

While in Austin, I visited a Tom Ford counter at Nordstrom, and saw this beauty sitting out on display front and center. I’ve played around with Tom Ford products at counters before, but to be totally honest, sticker shock and employee intimidation have always kept me from purchasing.

Every time I talk to the SA’s, I feel like they kind of think they’re humoring me. I don’t always look like the typical ‘luxury’ client, pushing a crazy toddler in a stroller with my day-two hair in a bun, but I still like to be treated well when I’m planning on dropping some serious dollars on their products.

 

This time was no different, but fortunately, I took the plunge anyway!

I’m Picking Up Good Vibrations

Fast side note – your mid-twenties are a really strange time, my friends. If you’ve been there, you know what I’m talking about, and if you haven’t, here’s what’s coming:

You don’t really know what’s ‘cool’ anymore. At least, not right away. I can’t keep up with which videos went viral this week, what dance everyone is doing now, or all the millions of new apps that rise to fame and fizzle out every couple of weeks. The things that defined my childhood are totally different than the technology driven world today’s teens have been raised in, so when I write posts with titles like ‘I’m Picking Up Good Vibrations’, I’m hoping that the Beach Boys have spanned enough generations that I don’t alienate my audience.

You also don’t feel super adult-like. Sure, I have a toddler, a mortgage, a car note, and have to make my own doctors appointments now, but I’m still not a Grown Up, right?

 

It’s a weird age. But makeup makes the transition a little bit easier! ? That I know, and that I can keep up with.

 

Now that I’ve let you all in on my quarter life crisis, let’s get down to business!

As Good As Gold

They say all that glitters is not gold, but this highlighter from Charlotte Tilbury sure is!

So from what I understand, this illuminator was released for holiday 2014 and was SO popular, that they brought it back for holiday 2015. Unfortunately, I missed it again, but I must have done something to get in the favor of the Makeup Gods, because I was able to score it a couple of weeks ago when it popped up again on Beautylish!

Berry Me 2? More like Bury Me, Too! Okay, I know that dad joke was lame, but seriously! I get more and more irritated every time I try to wear this lip color from Dose of Colors.

A Tale of Two Lippies – Act I

image

And I said, “What about breakfast at Tiffany’s?” ?

That song always comes to mind when I see Tiffany Blue! I love this shade because it’s a perfect hybrid of femininity and masculinity. Whether you’re sporting the iconic color with clothing, jewelry, or on your face, it’s sure to be eye-catching!

 

When I saw promos for this lipstick, I knew I’d have to have it. I hadn’t purchased any Jeffree Star lip colors before, but I’d heard great things about the quality of the formula. More importantly, I recently re-established my crush on Jeffree after watching a YouTube video featuring him and NikkieTutorials. What a throwback to the days of Myspace! I even saw Jeffree live with Warped Tour in 2009 or 2010. Am I showing my age yet?

 

When the package arrived at my doorstep, I didn’t even give the delivery man time to drive away before I opened the door and greedily grabbed it. Normally, I have a queue of products lined up to review, but I pulled this sucker out of the box and put it on immediately!

 

The packaging is cute, and I really liked the doe-foot applicator. Shockingly, what impressed me most wasn’t the outside, (as you know, I’m a sucker for cutesy) but the inside! I’m talking about the formula, of course. Breakfast at Tiffany’s applied with such precision and opacity that it looked perfect almost instantly. The texture is soft and velvety, which is a welcome difference from a lot of matte liquid lipsticks on the market right now.

 

In the photo above where I’m wearing the shade, I first lined my lips with Pool Boy from OCC. This does make it photograph a little bluer, so you’ll get the truest color impression from the swatch on my hand.

 

The color is gorgeous and super daring – so if you’re not a Bold Betty, it definitely isn’t for you. If you do love your lipsticks with lots of color and a side of fun, be warned that I think this is a limited edition release.

I know it’s early, but I can say for sure that this formula is one of my very favorites. Just a heads up, Jeffree’s instant cult-classic neutral shade Androgyny is re-stocking Feb. 12th. Make sure you get your hands on it before it sells out again!

 

Now that you’ve seen a fantastic liquid lipstick, stay tuned for a review of a popular formula that could use vast improvement. See you soon!

 

 

It’s Play Time Again!

My toddler loves to play, of course. It’s so much fun to watch him run around and try out different toys, make noise, and continually learn about the world around him.

That same unbridled excitement is exactly what I feel when I open Sephora’s Play! box each month! Exploring 6 or 7 new products at a time is my idea of heaven ?.

 

While I’ve been critical in the past, I’ll say right off the bat that this month’s box is my favorite so far!
