Lip Crayon Craze: Bourjois Color Boost in Red Sunrise
Just when you thought I couldn't possibly buy any more lip crayons... Oh, the neon bright packaging from an old favorite brand that's unavailable in the States just whispered my name seductively from a 40% off promo display (and those sales never happen in Polish drugstores!), and there was no stopping me. But anyway, look at this beaut: it's the Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon in Red Sunrise ($14.80 on Asos.com).
I apologize for the poor quality of this lip swatch - the warm, sunny afternoon lighting effectively killed all the pink aspects of this color. On a different note though, I'm wearing the remnants of lash extensions I got done while I was in Poland. My overall thoughts on this experiment is that the extensions can be quite fun and save you some mascara application time in the morning, but overall they're just not my style - I thought they overwhelmed my eye shape, felt too heavy and looked too obviously fake. A couple days ago I got so annoyed with the wonky little buggers, I pulled almost all of them out, and now I'm furiously applying my LiLash, waiting for my own fringe to grow out. Le sigh.
