Welcome back from the weekend! What were some of the highlights from your time off? I spend most of the weekend with friends — trying out a new Vietnamese restaurant, celebrating AppleJack Festival in Nebraska City (about an hour south of Omaha) and reading a new book I can’t get enough of (Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay).
I picked up two shades from Maybelline’s new matte lipstick collection and have been testing them out over the past week. I’m not really a fan of matte lipsticks; I find most of them to be extremely drying on my lips and end up using a lip gloss on top.
However, these new matte lipsticks from Maybelline are amazing. They’re creamy and really pigmented, and surprisingly they don’t dry out my lips at all. The shade range is great, too, and they go from pretty nudes to bold brights in ultra flattering colors. They’re also less than $6 each at Target, so if I were you, I’d go pick up one or two to try out yourself. Well worth a try!
