D 120306 006D 120306 005Lime green lightweight merino boatneck from J. Crew, gray trousers from Limited (believe they were the “Drew” fit), black city boots from Impo, silver rings necklace from Ann Taylor Loft.

Hair is washed, conditioned and the Curly Sexy Hair'S Curl Powder applied. Hair allowed to air dry for about 15 minutes, then dried the rest with a diffuser. Curling iron to the not-curly pieces. I felt that I had to curl the whole top layer of my head because it was dry and frizzy looking. However when curled even for 5 seconds, it got a lovely luster and natural curl that blended with the rest of the head.

Makeup is L'Oreal Bare Naturale in Nude Beige, Nars blush in Orgasm, Smashbox Soft Lights in Tint (both on apples of cheeks), Maybelline ExpertWear shadow quad in Mocha Motion, the lightest gray on the lids and along the lash line and the silverly shade in the inner corners and along the brow bone. Lashes curled, Cover Girl Lash Exact in Black applied, then DiorShow Unlimited in Black. on lips is Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Rink Afterglow. I just couldn't get a good shot of how glossy and pretty this stuff makes my lips!

Product Review
Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Afterglow. I tried one of the Super Lustrous glosses before and didn't like it. I found it way too sticky, the fragrance a bit nauseating (like grape children's medicine) and the color all in all unimpressive. A couple weekends ago I went to the mall with my sister and as she drove us home, I rummaged through her cosmetic bag in her purse and came upon this gloss. I remembered I gave her the last Super Lustrous I owned, but it wasn't this shade. I tried it on. Oooh, it was pretty in the golden light of the setting sun! Sparkly, but not in a Tinkerbell Cosmetics sort of way. Very glossy, but not so much that I couldn't wear it to work. It was a bit gritty from the sparkles, but for some reason I liked that; it made it feel more connected to my lips. It was sticky, but in a good way. I felt the color was subtle but pretty. I bought my own a week later and still like it very much! It stays on very well, wears away naturally, has no obvious flavor or smell and doesn't dry out my lips. A Recommend from me!

    Awww, my comment disappeared!

    I just got this sweater a couple of weeks ago at J. Crew; it may be merino but it’s super soft and lightweight and would be wearable all summer in an air conditioned office. Can’t wait to pair it with dark denim and white!

    I adore this sweater! It’s a fantastic color on you, and I’m always inspired to see you pair it with different colors – once even the leopard shoes! I shall covet this color sweater until I can find my own…
    You look great today, as usual!

    I have tried a few Revlon Super Lustrous Glosses and I like them. My favorites are Shine City and Toast to Shine.
