As my birthday is coming up next week, I did a little splurging this week.
Last night I picked up a few new pairs of pants, a really cute Marilyn Monroe shirt, and a Minnie Mouse Sweatshirt. What made me angry was the sizing of the pants. In the juniors department, a size seven is too large, and apparently a size five is too small. Like way too small. I can get them zipped, but my hips bulge over the sides because of the size of my hips. I'm petite and have so called child bearing hips. Lower rise pants don't do so well for me anymore. Now I've either got the options of returning them, or just exercising my ever loving tail off so I can fit into them.
Tonight's gets were makeup. I needed a new mascara, so I picked up Maybelline's Colossal Volum' Express Cat Eyes mascara in Glam Black. I haven't tried it yet, though my previous mascara was the same line and I adored it.
I also picked up a pink glittery liquid liner from Hard Candy. I LOVE it so far and can't wait to wear it to work.
Even though I don't wear lipstick much, I picked up two Wet n Wild colors on an urge. I got Hot Red and a mauve color, though I'm not sure how I feel about the mauve. I have always been terrible at picking colors that work well on my skin. I also can never seem to find the perfect nude color. My lips are so large, wearing bright colors makes them take over my entire face. My eyes are my favorite feature. I love to play up my eyes. Given that I do a lot of color on my eyes, I try to stay away from a lot of color on my lips to prevent the entire look from going to classy to drag queen.
I need to get some sleep. I've got a long day ahead tomorrow!
Have a great night! Pictures of the new gets are coming soon!
