Yes I know that I'm behind on collections. I haven't had much money lately, and unfortunately I don't get free samples. So I get what I can when I can. Two things I love are fall-themed lipsticks and MAC's Mineralize lipsticks for when my lips are dry (like in winter). The older I get the more I like creamy lipsticks that don't show all of my deep lip lines. As I said in my last post, once you get to a certain point no over-the-counter lip treatment can get rid of the really deep ones. Primer helps but that's another post. When I'm in a hurry I like a lipstick that can look good all on it's own. Most of MAC's creamy formulas do that for me, but the Mineralize ones FEEL good, like a lip balm. So I wanted to get some nude/light colors to use this winter. I picked up 2 from Haute Dogs that I thought would work. The first, Rare Breed, isn't an overly noticeable color but I love the way it looks on me - a perfect pinky nude. The other, Barking Gorgeous, does show more lines because it's a milkier peach color, but from a regular distance (vs. an up close photo), it looks nice. Both are keepers for me.
