I love lipstick. I previously mentioned (in my post about dressing up when you’re feeling down), that putting on a swipe of lipstick when you need a boost is a great way to fake some confidence until you are feeling better for real.
Of course, your go-to secret beauty weapon doesn’t have to be lipstick, but for me, lipstick is my favorite beauty treat. That’s saying something. I have a bit of a problem buying too much makeup (I don’t think it’s too much, but my husband begs to differ!), and lipstick is my absolute favorite indulgence. I’m also a bit of a lipstick snob. For me, the packaging is just as important as what’s inside of it. I love the feeling of pulling a luxurious tube of lippy out in public. It’s just a little bit of glamour for an otherwise blah day.
I went to Sephora yesterday and treated myself to a couple new colors, and I thought I would share my haul with you!

I don’t normally buy three lipsticks at a time, but they were all so pretty. I just knew I would be bummed if I left without all of them, so home with me they came! It’s particularly grey, rainy, and yucky here today, so having a bit of color and shine will certainly pick me up every time I apply!
