Comparisons and Dupe of Lime Crime Salem Velvetine: Brown Lipsticks and Liners

I love brown!  And yes, chocolate!

Hi there!

Okay so brown lipstick- specifically Lime Crime Makeup Lip Stain in Wicked.  I've wanted it for.ever.  It's this gorgeous brown that constantly pops up on Lime Crime's Instagram and taunts me.  It's not just 'brown' it's like milk chocolate but with a slight warm undertone that keeps it from looking like you raided your stash of Hershey's.  It's just gorgeous.  Here are some of the pics I'm talking about:

Hello there!

Busy busy bee around here.  I'll be on hiatus for a while until I get some blogging time.  I'm super duper excited that I am now working as a nurse and in the best unit I could ever hope for.  It's the hugest dream come true but also the most frightening/exciting thing I've done.  I want to give 110%. Soooo you might not see/hear much from me but it's all dream building around here.  However, when I get time, here's what I want to share:

Vice 3 (a bit more)
OCC Lip Tars and Polish
Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette
Starlooks/Wantable/Ipsy/Lip Monthly boxes from like you know, the entirety of 2014
J Lynne Foundations (dreamy stuff)
Aromaleigh collections (gorgeous, gorgeous!)
MAC Lip Trios
...etc and yonder and non...

Anyway, lots going on and I'll get to it, but there is a time and season and right now my season is my work.


Have a great day,
T

My Ode to School:

Homework, homework every day.
I get no sleep. I get no pay.
Heaven help me as I curse.
It ain't easy to become a nurse.
I try and try to get good grades.
As blub and wrinkles amass in spades.
One day soon I know it will end.
And maybe I'll be skinny with a BSN.
Then off to grad school I will go.
3 more years of rows to hoe.
And once I'm old and finally free.
I'll maybe have my NNP.
If that's the case the war is won.
And DANG IT ALL I will BE DONE!


Have a great day,
T

Rosy Peachy Makeup: Using Darling Girl Cosmetics

Inspiration for Look, via Google


Hi there!

Darling Girl Cosmetics posted a bit ago on their Facebook page offering a FREE eyeshadow if you posted a look.  Out of nowhere I racked up an order full of racey names- completely on accident.  However, the owner Susan had a hilarious response to my rather risque pickings.
