It’s kind of out of character for me to write a beauty review lately, being that I’ve basically let myself go. In the last six months, I have barely put on makeup. I throw my hair into a pony tail. And I throw on leggings or jeans at any opportunity instead of dresses and skirts.
It’s kind of depressing. It was even more evident how sad I’ve started looking when I was flipping through old pictures on my phone and TimeHop. What happened? I used to get up and do my hair every day. I would do my makeup. I would put on cute clothes that were slightly uncomfortable because I looked adorable in them.
So the other morning I dusted my dreary self off and dove head first into my makeup bag and came up looking half decent. I even did the unthinkable, I put on lip color.
Now to a normal person, that doesn’t seem like a big deal, but I’ve thrived on the fact that people have seen me with nothing on my lips and told me they “love that color.” Yes, I’m not kidding you. So when I do buy lip color, I always go for something crazy, and I NEVER wear it. Which is how I found a stick of Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stain in my bag.
It’s called Cherish Devotion, is hot pink, and I’m in LOVE. Seriously, no joke. I always have trouble with lip sticks looking funny on me and getting clumpy or making me look super fake. Sure, I’m probably just too hard on myself, but after putting on this balm stain (which comes in a solid stick), I’ve become obsessed. I want to wear it all the time. And I’m for sure going to be getting it in other colors.
It lasts all day, too. I’m not one to touch up all day long, so come 4 p.m. when I finally looked myself in the mirror, I was so surprised that the color was still there. I had snacked all day, drank out of my water bottle and it was still there. Yes, some had come off onto my straw, but I still looked just as good as when I put it on that morning. So win for me: one-of-the-worlds-laziest-makeup-ladies.
