Happy New Year! It’s 2021 and if you’re reading this, You and I have made it through an interesting season. That is worth celebrating!
So as mentioned in my previous post, I am fortunate to be able to celebrate by birthday after Christmas and right before New Year’s Eve. It’s a week of celebration and I didn’t let a pandemic stop me from wearing my lippies either, ha! After all, we can only really wear them at home now. 🙁
I was also fortunate to receive a few lipsticks from my wonderful friends and family who know me so well. I also usually go out for my boxing day shopping which thankfully in Toronto last longer than just the day. This year going out wasn’t allowed, so I did a little online and added just a little more to the makeup drawer. Still fun especially in PJs. You also know you have good friends when they buy you organizational tools to store your lip wear…The ladies on The Home Edit would be proud I think. (Thanks Sulleyma!)
Below are some of the lip goodies I received and I cannot wait to share their goodness. And yes I have already tried them all, ha! I have yet to document my enjoyment of these lippies yet and some are still en route…I can’t wait!
Above on the orange fluffy pillow are the Smashbox set with a beautiful trio of sheer and satin colours Easy, Get Fired, and Black Cherry. I am wearing Black Cherry in the top right photos. I also got a staple nude from Pat McGrath, Venus in Furs as well as a beautiful deep burgundy in and Flesh 3. Love my friends! And can you believe that I did not own any of the Superstar Matte Ink Crayons by Maybelline? Shocked?! So was I. These beauties are so easy to apply and the pencil form makes getting the colour right up to your lipline so easy. They also come with a little sharpener hidden in the bottom of the crayon to restore that pointy tip shape should you desire to do so. I now have Laugh Louder, the orange one and Make It Happen in a deep Burgundy red! I tried a workout in the red one and it did not budge! I would have posted that pic here, but neck and cheek sweat are not my best looks. 🙄
As for this year, you can expect a little more involvement from The Lipstick Blogger. I’m looking forward to collaborations and news about brands I didn’t even know existed. I’m also looking forward to adding to the Black Owned and the Black Owned & Local Posts as I’ve learned so much about over the last few months. I can’t wait for you to read the post that comes out after this one. There’s a fun story with that one too, but you’ll just have to follow me along on this journey of lip wear appreciation. Stay tuned for posts on Lip health and Lip care as well as some #WEARITLIKEYOUMEANIT merchandise. 2021 is already looking up and that’s in part to your generous support and your reading eyes. Thank you for both.
Many Blessings and Happy New Year! 2021 here we come!
