Rave: MAC Girl About Town and Vegas Volt

Recently I've picked up a couple new MAC lipsticks that I LOVE and had to share with you guys. 

First, I got Vegas Volt, a gorgeous bright orange-y coral color. I also picked up Girl About Town, a loud fuchsia with a blue undertone that is incredibly flattering. Both are MAC's Amplified formula, which was new to me, but, I've found I really like it. They are similar to the cream sheen formula, but maybe a tad more drying. Also, (obviously) the colors are extremely pigmented, and look great alone, after one coat. Ive swatched them below, Vegas Volt to the left, and Girl About Town on the right.

I'm Alive

Surprise! I'm not dead! I took a summer (and semester) off of blogging mostly due to laziness. Sorry. Your girl's got stuff to do, you know? Don't worry, I'll catch you up to speed.

Notable things that have happened since April:

Great! Now that we're all caught up, I want to announce something (semi) exciting! I stalk Emily Schuman of pretty regularly, and have become obsessed with her "Five Things" series. So naturally, I want to start documenting weekly inspirations, favorite products, and random happy things of my own! First trial post coming soon! Let me know what you guys think. :)
