Saturday's trip to Sephora was a success. I picked up Make Up Forever Aqua Cream in shade 16 Pink Beige. It's a gorgeously pigmented medium pink shade that's very flattering. It was love at first sight. I also snagged Benefit's Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Flatter Me. Flatter Me is more toasted and less mauve than it shows on the website, but it's a beautiful neutral shade for those days when pink won't do.
After exchanging my DDF moisturizer, I still had a dollar's worth of credit left, so I decided to pick up LipFusion's Lip InFATuation in First Crush, a soft pink nude. I have a sample of Lip InFATuation in the In The Flesh shade, and my quibbles with the brush applicator aside, I really liked it. I tend to go for the deep berry shades or classic red lip colors, but In The Flesh really sold me on the soft nude shades, and I think they'll be great for quick springtime looks. Because in case you missed me mentioning it, I am incredibly lazy when I first get up in the morning. Having some gorgeous go-to flattering pinks and neutrals will definitely help me go out the door feeling more like a human being and less like an extra on Shaun of the Dead, but if you see me in the morning and tell me "You've got red on you." I'll try to make sure I smile at you.
