Long time, no post!
Wow! I haven’t posted in months. Pregnancy and being a new mom really zapped most of my free time. It’s been a huge life change and my son has brought me a lot of joy (and sleeplessness).
My days mainly consist of diaper changing, sitting on the couch nursing, trying to find some sleep, and occasionally doing some dishes or something. Hmm.
While sitting on the couch nursing I also binge watch Netflix to help pass the time. My husband and I have been watching Breaking Bad. What an amazing show. It is totally not something I would normally like, but we’ve been drawn in and have been racing to finish the series. I haven’t been this into a show since LOST.
I’ve really been missing blogging lately and decided I would post something. I actually meant to post this a long time ago – I’ve had these swatch pictures ready to go but never posted them.
So, today I’m going to talk about a Wet n Wild lipstick in the Fergie range. The shade is called D’Vinely Chilled. I loved the way the color looked in the tube – a warm shimmering wine shade.
I’m not going to front. This is frosty. Frost has a bit of a bad reputation these days as being too dated or cheap looking. Well, call me cheap (it wouldn’t be the first time), but I like a bit of frost sometimes – in the right amount, I think frost can be pretty and feminine. In astronomical amounts, you’re veering into powdered donut lips territory. Not cute.
It definitely swatches frosty as well. It’s got good pigmentation and you can layer the color if desired. I like the way it looks as a swatch. On me, though…
I don’t like the way it looks on me. I don’t know, it feels matronly or something. It feels very dry as well. I feel like it ages me in an unflattering manner. I bet it would look great on someone with a deeper skin tone, I can see it reading as a gorgeous shimmering berry. On me…I’ll pass.
I haven’t even touched it since swatching the product for this post. Now that I think about it, I bet it would look and feel much nicer with some lip gloss on top. I’ll give it a shot.
