Valentine’s Day Looks! (and lipstick recs)

Happy Valentine’s Day weekend! I am happily single and most likely will be doing tea & brunch with my galentine friends, which I’m looking forward to! 🙂

Today I have a classic FOTD and a more fun FOTD that are both appropriate for Valentines. Plus I have a list of some of my favorite lipsticks that would work for a V-Day look!

Too Faced La Crème Lipstick Swatches

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching (gasp!) and for all those who love the holiday, I have two V-day appropriate lipsticks to show you!

lipstick swatchfest!

Its absolutely still fall/winter in my book (if there’s still snow outside, its still winter!) so of course I’m going to continue wearing all my dark reds and berry lipsticks 🙂 I actually mourn when its springtime despite how much I hate ice, because I really really love my dark lippies and they look a little bit odd in the bright hot spring/summer sun. Oh well!

Lots of images in this post, so make sure you hit the read more!
