Review: More Clinique Pop Lip Colours (Bare Pop, Ruby Pop, Icon Pop)

Hi everyone!

It’s about time I shared these, for the first review of 2019!

You all know I love and ADORE the Clinique Pop Lip Colour in Cherry, which is plush and comfortable and stains beautifully. So, I bought this set of minis, including a spare Cherry Pop, during the Boxing Day sales in 2017. I didn’t get around to using them until late 2018, and I think I’m finally ready to give a verdict on them.

I like that the base of the packaging matches the bullet colour. These lipsticks go at the front of my lipstick storage rack so I can store them upright and still see the colour, but if you’re storing them in drawers it may be best to store them upside down in order to see the colour you are choosing more clearly.

 

Here’s a link to my little post gushing about Cherry Pop. I will hold back from gushing about it even more and focus on the other three shades that are new to me!

Bare Pop is a subtle light nude that shimmers. It’s comparable to Rikugien of the NARS satin lip pencil line so, if you prefer a bullet lipstick, this might be up your street. Unfortunately for its name, I think it’s *too* bare and I don’t really reach for it. However, when I do it’s to add it on top of a deeper nude to add interest, or to look like I am wearing nothing which is almost never.

Ruby Pop is a quite bright red. It is in the matte part of the collection, and this shade is delightfully summery. I think I can imagine this at a beach party or festival of sorts. That said, I wore it to work during the late summer to really feel those vibes.

Icon Pop is a delightful deep red, not dark enough to register as burgundy but it’s a delightfully rich shade that I think is very flattering. There are two photos of it below and the bottom one better expresses how this shade translates in real life.

The matte collection is interesting – like the original line, they are vivid in colour, glide across, stay put and are fairly smoothing and forgiving, but there is something about mattes that make you look like more effort has been put in other than just slapping on a lippie.

The matte colours are great in their own right – however, I just don’t reach for them over Cherry Pop. Most likely because I don’t really wear mattes anymore. BUT I have been wearing a lot more red lips recently so hopefully I use them a bit more over the coming months. If not, I’ll have to pass them on to a new home.

Bare Pop is definitely being put on the rehome pile, and I might keep Icon pop if it were not for the fact I own a few similar shades already. I am also particularly torn over whether I’d wear Ruby Pop a lot in future.

This is one of those occasions where buying a whole set of lipsticks just doesn’t work out. I expected at least one total dud (which is Bare Pop for me) but that the other reds are also not wowing me is a little disappointing. Maybe it’s just that Cherry Pop made me hold the entire range to a really high standard, or that my tastes changed between buying and using the set as I definitely lean away from mattes now.

Another reason I am unlikely to buy these lipsticks again – even Cherry Pop – is the fact that the Clinique brand isn’t cruelty-free which docks them of points in my book these days (it was not a priority to me this time last year). But if that is a lower-priority criterion for you, I’d still pick the regular Clinique Colour Pop lipsticks over the matte ones. They’re a great, foolproof range.

So, long story short, these newer lipsticks and I obviously sort of get along but we aren’t each other’s types… if that makes sense at all.

Until next time,

Four Years of Twenty Swans!!!!

Hi Everyone!

Another year has passed and we are at 20S’ FOURTH year! That’s insane. I know, I say this every year, but that’s really just amazing. Life for me is getting much, much busier now but I am hoping to keep up the blogging at least – I’ve realised this blog is how some people keep up with me and I think it’s important to keep in touch.

Here are some of this year’s blog stats!

Following stats:

  • 427 WordPress followers (steady as I have not been as interactive!)
  • 120 Instagram followers (give or take a few bots)
  • 304 Twitter followers (dropping as I am not really a tweeter)
  • 42 Bloglovin followers (HI.)

I’ve been much less stringent about social media promo so my views have actually dipped a bit this year. I just don’t put aside the time for it so it’s kind of a no from me. I enjoy the blogging most and the view count is a bonus, really. I’d like to post more on Instagram as a micro-blog for all the posts that don’t make the cut, too. In terms of views, I didn’t hit 20k again this year and I’m sitting at 17.5k.

I’ve posted just a little more than last year, and while my overall views have decreased, my blog engagement has been a lot higher! I got 293 comments this year (up from 85) and 728 likes (up from 342). As far as I know, though, I don’t have a system for accepting comments outside of WordPress. Maybe that’s something I can work on this year.

My top five posts overall this year are:

  1. This sheet mask post, again (2015) which now has over 10k views???
  2. My review of the Kose Suncut Aqualy UV Sunscreen (2017)
  3. My review of the Mamonde Balm Intense (2017)
  4. My review of the Canmake BB Cream (2017)
  5. A post about pH testing my cleansers (2016)

My top five posts from 2018 ONLY:

  1. Battle of the Velvet Teddy Dupes #1
  2. My review of Skinfood’s Avocado and Honey Lip Serum
  3. My review of Primark’s PS… Nudes palette
  4. My Snap review of the Primark Hydrogel mask
  5. Lipsticks in Rotation: February 2018

I’ve been a little more creative with photography this year and making use of the aperture and background blur for my photos. I’ve tried to be more flexible and more creative with my setups and develop a more airy and warm style whilst trying to remain colour-accurate for swatches.

Here are examples from throughout the year:

Check out this post on my photography process for a bit of my older photography!

I’ve just discovered Canva for title cards (including the one for this post!), although I am having a few teething problems with getting to grips with it I like all the custom options it has for my blog posts!

Update on Last Year’s Mindful Things:

  • I didn’t write a lot at all.
  • I joined the gym, so more cardio is being done.
    I think I still gained weight and got bigger, but I don’t feel ready to die after running for the bus anymore, which is very nice. Becoming healthier and losing weight are not the same thing to me and I am proud of the strides made in improving my fitness level.
  • I don’t think I spent more or less money on snacks, but overall I think I’ve been healthier which was the intent behind this.
  • I’ve become much more comfortable with being the manga/k-pop person and I think that it helped that I’ve surrounded myself with a group of friends who are the same which helps me normalise it – in short, I’ve found my crew at uni and it’s doing me a lot of good!
  • My wardrobe hasn’t changed much, really – there have been very little purchases through the year apart from some key items. But it may have to change, and more purchases made out of necessity because I’ve gotten a bit bigger in size again.

This year’s mindful things:

  • Try to be more a eco-friendly and ethical shopper in small steps, by:
    • exploring more veggie/vegan food options (that I started this year and I want to continue with that).
    • replacing my cotton rounds with reusable ones as soon as my current pack runs out (I don’t use them that often anyway). I don’t buy coffee often at all so I find I don’t need a travel cup at the moment.
    • moving towards being more and more cruelty-free with my beauty purchases, with exceptions which I hope to outline in a later post.
    • considering more small, indie and local (UK) beauty brands.
    • At the moment I don’t NEED or even WANT much of anything (kicking those consumer habits!!!) so I’ve just done a ton of research to prepare for the year.
  • Continuing to visit the gym and improving my fitness level – I’m trying not to be bothered about my size and weight, and the focus is just on being healthier. This will probably become really difficult as my placement year approaches, but the point is that I’ll TRY.
  • I want to draw more, but due to my book challenge the focus this year is on reading. I just want to do more of both, but I know I’ll be very busy.
  • Continue to blog during the summer.
    It’s my biggest weakness, blog-wise – I do next to nothing here in the summer and I always regret it afterwards. No particular reasons why, just that my life outside of blogging becomes busy or less interesting around then that even a trip to Vietnam cannot cure.
  • Use up a lipstick or cull my collection to a steady 30.
    Despite a year-long ban I still didn’t really fully finish a lipstick, and although the aim is 30, my storage rack holds 40 which doesn’t help. I am filling the other 10 with lip liners and other things that fit and I’ll aim for ‘one in, one out’. I can imagine this going haywire if I end up travelling for Placement year, though.

I feel like I should mention again that these aren’t really goals, hence the name, as I revisit this post a lot myself to remind myself of what I can do to improve myself. No point in making goals I’ll forget about, right? Plus this means less pressure on myself to achieve said goals and more gratification when things do improve over the year.

Once again, thank you for reading.

[Reflection] Post-Lipstick-Ban: What Has Changed?

Hi Everyone!

MY LIPSTICK-BUYING BAN IS OVER.

It’s now 2019, and I have successfully managed a whole YEAR without buying a single lipstick for myself. So I want to talk about what has changed over the past year.

To start with, I had 50-something lipsticks before I started this lipstick ban, not including lip liners. I was gifted around 8 lip products this year by my friends throughout the year, too. Towards the end, I did a bit of a clear out and I am now at around 32.

I was pretty harsh with what I threw out. Even if I love particular products there’s no use if I don’t wear them AT ALL all year. I might be sharing what I kept in my stash another time, so keep an eye out for that.

Buying Habits

I got to have a long, hard look at my current collection – What I love, what I don’t love, what I bought only for the sake of buying or for the sake of trying a new trend and never wore after first impressions. As much as I love matte liquid lipsticks, I am also growing out of them in favour of options with more shine, which are more forgiving and youthful. I guess there’s a reason that glosses have stood the test of time although I am less into them.

My preferences have leaned towards mini versions of lipsticks where possible as they are easier to use up and more satisfying to buy, but as they are often presented in sets it means I end up with a shade or two that are not that great in the end. However now I also lean towards buying full lipsticks if I am not 100% sure I will like a shade in a range, so I don’t end up with a shade I don’t like.

Buying no lipstick actually had a knock-on effect on my other beauty purchases, too. I bought no new palettes this year and ended up experimenting with mascaras and other eye products. I think I’ve improved with eyeliner and found a style that works for me and complements my eye shape, and I can wear lashes from time to time if I use half-lashes. So I’ve been better at exploring other makeup as a result of the ban.

Cruelty-Free

I have been leaning towards more cruelty-free options and recently have realised just how many cruelty-free companies are owned by other companies that sell in China or test on animals. Even in my current, re-sorted lipstick collection, only about 3 (!!!) of my lipsticks are truly cruelty-free – although more than half are not tested on animals and instead are owned by a testing parent company or selling in China. All of my palettes are cruelty-free, though.

(I feel the need to mention that I’m not vegetarian or vegan but at the moment I’m slowly reducing my meat consumption and exploring non-meat options when I’m out and about.)

I am currently self-debating on whether to exclude companies that sell in China when I look for my next purchase, especially in regards to Korean and Japanese products which I actively use and enjoy.

Some of the lipsticks I have loved this year.

I think that for Western brands that are aware of the issue, I can understand why they may sell in China as there’s a lot of money to be made in comparison to the customers they lose by not being truly cruelty-free. However, by not selling in China it may help force the hand of the government to reconsider their testing laws.

In short, I will be doing my best over the next year to omit Western brands that are not completely cruelty-free, the exception being a single lipstick that was on my wishlist for the longest during the past year and before I even considered going cruelty-free. Of course, I won’t reject any gifted items either.

It’s a bit different for Korean and Japanese companies due to cultural expectations, geographical location, and lower western popularity – Korea is actively pushing a cruelty-free law now which I think reflects their desire to help push K-Beauty globally, but most companies will most likely continue to sell in China as they have done for years.

I’ll probably keep watching as K-Beauty is pushed even further out into the western market and make a decision then but I think it’s very unlikely a K/J-beauty company will stop selling there even if their sales abroad outmatched their sales in China.
For now, I will continue to keep K and J-Beauty in my search for new stuff.

Colour

Colour-wise, this has been the year of the nude lip for me – but it’s a specific kind of nude. The medium or slightly deep nude is super nice, in some kind of warmer tone. I was previously not a fan of cooler mauve nudes but I’ve found some cases where they do work on me.

However, towards the end of the year I found myself wearing reds and brighter shades almost daily, and am falling back in love with that colour category. I also tended to keep more of the reds and berries during the clearout, and less of the nudes as many of the nude shades were experimental ‘nopes’.

I have definitely moved away from vampier colours. I’m sure a year or so ago I would have gladly bought the new Fenty Lip Paint in Uninvited (black!!) without a second thought. But I wear lipstick to university, gym or work most days and usually want to keep it fairly low key – YES, red is low-key!! However, I’m also a sucker for berry tones as long as they’re not too dark, and a shinier berry tone can be great provided there is no bleeding.

Some of the newly opened lipsticks this year.

Moving Forward…

This year, I think I’ll actually continue in the mindset of a ban. Initially, I was going to treat myself to a haul but I think that definitely defeats the point of this year’s challenge!!

Going forward, I want to try to limit my lipstick purchases to about 3-4 a year, roughly one every 3-4 months. I think that’s a reasonable aim considering my previous 50+ lipsticks were the result of only three years of buying – despite clearing out every year of at least 10. Yes… it was a problem, and I am glad to have tackled it this year!!!

I try to research all the items I am buying to make sure I really like them, but this means that I’m not particularly trying anything new. That, in turn, makes things pretty boring and predictable after a while, which isn’t great for blog material. Therefore, I want to be trying more from Korean and Japanese brands as well as cruelty-free brands and brands in the UK that aren’t often reviewed. I hope this will keep future reviews fresh and new for both myself and you readers!

Lastly, I have another no-buy challenge lined up for this new year that involves tackling that reading pile on my desk, so keep an eye out for that.

Until Next Time,

Review: NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anita

Hi everyone!

I was pretty determined to put out a final post of the year, and here we are.

Can you believe 2019 is tomorrow??

2019 will also mark the end of my 2018 lipstick ban. Technically, it was exactly a year since my last purchase on Boxing Day but I wanted to hold back during that sales period until the new year. I will, of course, be putting up some posts about it in the coming year to reflect on that.

So, a while ago, I was fortunate enough to receive a few lip products from a friend I hadn’t seen in ages! She’s getting married, which is kind of insane to hear about – it feels like only yesterday she was practically lending me her entire bookshelf and fuelling my early bookworm tendencies. I didn’t know she read the blog, but she knew I was on a lipstick ban and I hadn’t considered that this blog is also a way of keeping in touch!

She handed me this lipstick and three glosses. Whilst I did like the glosses, I ended up rehoming them in a makeup trade with my university friends, but I kept this lipstick on hand! She said she fell out of using them compared to her Tom Ford and Bobbi Brown – and some of you know the Crushed Lip Colors have been on my wishlist all year but now I can say I know exactly what my first lipstick purchase in 2019 is going to be!

The packaging is a sleek matte black, and as it is metal, it is cool to the touch. The NARS logo is decorated all around the side in glossy type, quite understatedly. I love the magnetic clasp in the packaging that whirls the lid around until it’s shut, which I think is snappy and really cool.

The winter chill giving me slight goosebumps…

NARS Audacious Lipstick in the shade Anita is a satin finish shade in a nude pink. It’s very similar to Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate in 08, which was a smudge too light for me but in comparison this pulls a little darker and pinker on my skin tone and is just a bit more flattering. I normally wear a darker liner under 08 to make it fit me better but I don’t feel the need to do that with Anita. It is still a lovely understated nude that I like to wear to work if I am keeping things low-key.

The formula is pretty light, super comfortable and lasts very well through a shift at work or lunch. It layers without a problem too.

I think it is safe to say that this has just casually completely replaced Rimmel 08 in my collection, which is great, and I think I’ll be wearing this a lot throughout 2019!

Until Next Time,

Snap Review: Bourjois Rouge Lacque in Jolie Brune

Hi everyone!

I hope you’ve all had a nice Christmas!

I’ve been slacking off on reviewing the lipsticks in my holdover box throughout the lipstick ban so I want to get this one out of the way, ASAP. Bourjois’ Rouge Lacque comes in a small tube of 6ml for £8.99. You can often find it in Superdrug, Boots and FeelUnique, and I often see it in offers of 1/3 off or 3 for 2.

To be honest, I’m not fully satisfied with this photo – was it the lighting, the lack of creativity with the arrangement? I don’t know. I don’t like it.

The shade Jolie Brune instantly struck me as the lacquer version of their Beau Brun in the Velvet range and looking at their other shades, it seems like most of the shades in this range have a Velvet equivalent. On my lips and when swatched, this was even more apparent – the shades are almost identical. However, the colour is more intense and not as soft a finish as with the Velvet range.

Unlike other lacquers, this isn’t just a super-pigmented gloss. It’s not even super glossy. The texture is unlike other products in this category that I have tried before. It is a little sticky as is typical, but it is not slick when applied like a gloss, and it applies very thinly and opaquely.

It has a unique and slightly odd scent which is slightly more potent compared to the Rouge Velvet and it has a cooling effect when applied to the lips.

I don’t think the applicator picks up enough product for me but I did not mind dipping in twice to get more product. Twice was enough for a softer finish but for bolder lines on fuller lips you may want to dip in more.

When first applied colour can appear quite bold but it wears down to a softer, MLBB finish. Of course, you may have to top up the colour on the inner lips after eating, but I didn’t see a horribly noticeable difference with this particular shade. It wears down to a cream finish similar to in a bullet lipstick, which is quite nice.

However, I will admit there is something about the scent and cooling effect that makes me reach less for this product. On top of that, since researching more into cruelty-free products I have noticed that Bourjois is not cruelty-free so I will abstain from buying more of their products. I’ll explain more about my position on this topic in the coming year.

Overall, this remains one of my HG lip shades and to have it in an even more comfortable form suitable for the summer is amazing and thankfully, what I expected when I picked this up.

Until next time,

Lipstick & Chatter: Can We Stop With the Late Night Fireworks Now?

Everyone, can you believe its November? The German Market is just around the corner and so is the end of the year. I feel like it’s flying by quicker than I would like.

Shopping

These days, I get to come home to a great cinnamon scent in my room. I’ve been revisiting TK Maxx a lot waiting for a classically autumn scent like cinnamon or pumpkin in a reed diffuser. I own a few candles but I’m not allowed to use them upstairs for safety reasons, so the best near alternative for my room is a reed diffuser.

Now that I have my hands on a cinnamon scent, though, I think I would have preferred vanilla pumpkin or something without cinnamon as the scent is a bit strong. I’ve tucked away the reed diffuser in a corner where the scent will be less strong so hopefully, it won’t be so bad.

On the other hand, some of you may know that I love the Paper Place A4 Spiralbound notebooks from The Works. I’ve noticed that they’ve made their notebooks less pages recently although ultimately the same. I don’t know whether to be sad or happy seeing as it took me ages to get through them but now they’re less value for the same price!

University

I feel like I’m juggling so many things recently. Beyond university coursework, I’m also part of two societies, a language exchange group, a Japanese class and an extra module. I also have a gym membership and have been aiming for two days a week. I’d previously felt drained at most times during the week and at one point I started missing lectures and workshops in order to recover from my really long Tuesdays.

(This post goes out on a Tuesday, so rest assured I am probably dying at Uni as you read this.)

Until a few weeks ago, I also had two jobs. I’ve since quit the second job in order to have more time to fit all of these extra-curricular things with time to relax. The Tuesdays haven’t changed, essentially, so they’re still too long and tiring for the moment but I’m glad to have my Fridays and Sundays back – a few days where I can take time off and get ready for the next week. I feel as if I can still cramming in too much though and I’m still struggling to make it to the gym. I am hoping to change that this week.

NaNoWriMo

All this said, you’ll understand now why I’m finding it so hard to blog. You’ll be even more baffled to hear that I’m also adding NaNoWriMo to that list this year. For those of you unfamiliar, National Novel Writing Month is a writing challenge to get 50k words done throughout the month. I’ve only succeeded once in 2015 and not reached 10k in subsequent years since. So, of course, I’ve set a small goal for myself of at least reaching 10k. Right now, I’m at 1k.

On top of that, I haven’t concretely planned my novel at all, whereas I have attempted plans for most of my previous projects. This is because, in my mind, I am still in the mindset of getting to know the characters and setting and when I try to write with a plot I quickly lose the plot (pun sort of intentional).

So I am actually approaching the novel more like a plan, and hopefully all those words will help me become more familiar with my characters. Case in point is that I started this month with only three characters and simply by writing about their setting I’ve now got at least eight characters.

Lipstick Spotlight

Recently, the lipstick I have been wearing the most is my Smashbox Be Legendary in Legendary. I know I did review this lipstick a little negatively saying that it was not fully opaque and a bit patchy at times, but it means I’ve fully embraced a messy lip look.

I want something bold this autumn and winter as well as not too drying, so I have been wearing this two ways: popping this in the centre of my lips on top of Skinfood’s tinted avocado lip serum, or using the lipstick first in the centre and using a lip brush to line my lips in lip balm and soften the lip lines. I don’t have defined lips so softening lipstick lines really improves the look in my opinion. The result is this super plushy and glossy-ish look that I like wearing on a daily basis.

Point Blur_Nov102018_191608-01.jpeg

The lasting power of the lipstick is not great so depending on food type it may have to be retouched. However, with just a drink or so, it will last well and only lose some vividity, fading to a more blotted look.

I did wear a liquid lipstick or two recently but I couldn’t handle just how drying they felt so I think I am back to bullets, pigmented balmy products and glosses for life. I picked my recent gel polish to match – it’s Halo Gel Polish in Apple Red, which is slightly orangey yet not too bright. Ask your local nail salon if they offer it, and if not they’re sure to know a trade stockist that does.

And Finally…

On a random note, I find myself picking more and more vegetarian options recently when I am going out for food. I recently picked up a jar of pumpkin seed butter to try out – it’s the one option I saw that was not nut-based (my sister is allergic) so it was an impulse buy! I just look at what interests me and many times it happens to be vegetarian. I told myself in this regard that I would never force myself to eat vegan or vegetarian, and focus on what I like, and it’s interesting to see what I naturally gravitate to and what I could easily give up.

Until Next Time,

Lipsticks in Rotation|April-July 2018

Hi everyone!

As you might be able to tell, this post was originally scheduled for the end of April, which quickly flew by as I had lots of university things to do. On top of that, I was very bored with my lipstick choices afterwards so this is essentially a catch-up in lipsticks, too. However, I’ve now gone through half the year without buying a single new lipstick, so yay!

Starting a Year-Long Lipstick No-Buy

Lipsticks in Rotation – January 2018

Lipsticks in Rotation – February 2018

Lipsticks in Rotation – March 2018


April

New Item: NYX Butter Gloss Intense in Chocolate Crepe

I’ve been wearing this a heck of a lot recently. Of all the days I wore lipstick this month, I was likely wearing this for over half those days. The shade is my favourite type, a medium nude and it’s refreshing to be able to wear it all day without it drying my lips. It’s thick but not too thick and still delivers a lovely shine whilst lasting surprisingly well.

New Item: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes

In contrast, this was a bit of a disappointment. It settled into my lip lines and was overall just underwhelming considering how well-loved this range is. I much preferred the Liquid Suedes which definitely felt like a better and improved version. However, I do love this shade – a muted pink which is super nice for spring.

MAC Matte Lipstick in Nouveau Vogue (mini)

Considering that my Bourjois Nude-ist is running out, this is actually a very acceptable stand-in for a cooler pink. It has a bit of mauve to it that makes it wearable on me but still not a nude at all. It’s girly yet totally cool. This is the nutcracker edition mini packaging, I think.

Nars Velvet Satin Lip Pencil in Yu (mini)

I underestimated just how bright this is. It’s also super blue toned and I haven’t worn this kind of shade since perhaps last year. At the moment, I think it looks very odd on my skintone so have only really worn it once this month! It’s a popular and raved about shade that I have seen a lot in the blogosphere but I don’t think it’s for me.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Scrooge | Review here

I adore this colour. Like Rose Lancome from last month, this is a shade of pink that seems to brighten up my complexion and also my day. Not to mention this formula lasts all day without fail. If you leave these tubes lying around still too much though, the formula tends to separate and look a little less lively, but otherwise, it is still completely useable.

Mamonde Color Balm Intense in #16 Velvet Red | Review here

I do love this shade – that kind of muted red that is really flattering on me. Is it just me or are pencil type lipsticks essentially the same as normal lipsticks? Especially after they are worn down. The packaging on them also generally looks less appealing too for not that many positives over a bullet. Due to the matte formula I’ve still been reaching for my lip brush to tidy the edges after applying this pencil type product.


May/June/July

I knew I wouldn’t be out as much compared to previous months, so I scrapped my planned rotations completely. Instead, I made sure to reach for shades that I really wanted to use up at the moment. They all happen to be products I have featured on this blog before in previous rotations, too. Either way, I didn’t care all that much.

My tube of Lancome’s Rose Nu is pretty much finished unless I use a brush to scoop out the last remaining bits. Burberry’s Rosewood has been my go-to neutral choice for work although it does feel drying halfway into the working day. Clinique’s Cherry Pop has been the obvious choice for any fancier days out. I’ve not varied much in my lipsticks besides these.


So, now that we are nearing August I’ve actually re-sorted my rotations box and not forgotten about it so there will actually be a new post at the end of next month… But what I really want to ask right now is ‘what do you do when you’re bored with your current makeup?’ …That hopefully doesn’t include buying more! Especially in the summer when I’m barely wearing any and prefer a ‘lighter’ face, so to speak.

Until next time,
