Holiday Break Catch up and Top Lip Products

Hi Bellas!

How was your holiday break? I just got back from Orlando yesterday. It's so hard to get up and go to work the day after a vacation, lol.

I had lots of fun visiting the fam...the usual craziness trying to go from being an independent young woman to feeling like I'm a kid again at my parent's house, lol.

I had a chance to hit up the MAC pro store, yay! I'll post a haul video probably next week.

Did you guys get lots of presents for x-mas? As I get older, I don't really expect much but I got some goodies this year. In particular, my bff got me some NARS as part of our secret gift exchange, woo hoo!

Also, my boyfriend got me a new digital camera, finally! Now I can film my youtube videos and not have to worry about the blurry quality of my old webcam. The webcam was great in the beginning, but after a while it started going down hill. I have to more videos to upload that I did with my other webcam, but moving forward I'll have crystal clear videos. Thanks to the BF!

In the meanwhile, on my wednesday I uploaded a tag video - My Top 6 Lip Products.

Here they are:

1) Aquaphor - best lip moisturizer for serious dry skin issues
2) and 3) Viva Glam V lipglass and lipstick - most flattering universal color in my opinion
4) Bateaux Lustreglass - I love using this limited edition shade on women of color - fabulous!
5) Cork Lip Pencil - The perfect shade of brown for my highly pigmented lips...I always feel extra diva when wearing this :)
6) Gentle Simmer slimshine - A pretty sheer pink shade that's perfect for everday

Check out my video!

Don't forget to subscribe :) Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

Did you have fun in Otown? I was there Christmas Eve for last minute shopping, can you believe I STILL have not hit up MAC Pro??? it is definitely one of my New Years resolutions, lol!

My friend has been using the Aquaphor lip moisturizer for AGES... I've been meaning to pick it up for awhile now. It's really good and lasts a REALLY long time. Welcome back REN!!

That blue shadow is bangin, RR!

I may have to refer back to your false eyelash tutorial for New Year's - have you thought of doing a "Ren Ren's best of 2008"? So much to choose from . . .

i love your dramatic es looks!

and yes that darn harlow color..

its okay...
its just too frosty weird on me.
i think it's a lip gloss that i would have to mix a different lipstick or gloss with.
i think only then it would look okay.

I love Aquaphor. I use it everywhere - lips, elbows, hands and feet.

I'm having withdrawal symptoms too after spending time with my family and parents and not having to worry about anything. I just go back yesterday and I'm still trying to adjust.
