It's All About the Mule

On the Runway: Tory Burch
The mule is all the rage for these upcoming months.  Mules have been spotted on Rag & Bone, Donna Karen, and Versace runways.  The style, which features an open back and traditionally a closed toe, is perfect for transitioning from colder to warmer months.  The classic has been reinvented this season with variety of styles featuring geometric patterns, color blocking, or an open toe design.  How do you feel about the mule?

The Miracle Worker: Aquaphor

A multipurpose product is efficient and easy on the wallet.  For years and years I've heard top magazine editors and Youtubers talk about Aquaphor.  Every time I passed it in the drugstore I would look at it and then walk away because I found it to be a little too expensive.  I already had tons of products at home, why did I need another one?  But one day, I decided to cave and pick up it up.  I have never looked back!  I keep it at my desk and in all of my purses.

It works to sooth my dry,bloody cuticles and moisturize my heels and elbows in the winter. I would have to say my favorite way to use it is +on my lips.  A small dab of this on my bare lips gives my face an instant pick me up.  Sometimes I'll even apply it over a lip color to revamp the color after a few hours of wear or put it on top of a matte lip color to make it glossy.

I think it's a pretty great product but I would love if it came in a stick form for easier application. You can find it at any drugstore and online here.

Blush Obsession: Tarte's Exposed

The amount of times that I have reached for Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed in the past two months is a bit absurd.  I thought I should blog about my obsession with this blush.

The Color:
The reason that I love this Exposed is that the color is just super flattering on my skin tone.  I think its a great color for olive skinned girls.  I would describe it as a nude color , meaning that it provides a very natural warmth to the face.   I also find that it pairs well with a variety of nude lipsticks.

The Formula:
The way that the product looks in the pan, I thought that it would be very chalky but it is not.  You only need a light hand as the product is pretty pigmented.  The product claims to have 12 hour wear but I haven't tested that out yet.

Dupes:
Dupes for Tarte's Exposed include Mellow Mauve by Elf and Douceur by Nars.

Now I want to get my hands on other Tarte blushes (not that I need more makeup)!   I have my eyes on Glisten and Natural Beauty.
