Lips-mas Recap (or why I’m terrible at blogging)…

Happy New Year everyone! So when I started this blog I really meant to keep up on it and post at least a few times a week, but…then my mom had knee surgery and we had the holidays and I lost track… I’ve been good about posting on Instagram (I’m Nouveauhousewife on there too) and Twitter (Nouveauhousewif) but bad about blogging. I’m sorry! So as a sort of attempt to get back into the swing of things, I present below -my recap of the 12 Days of Lipsmas, Days 1-12 (and yes I own more than one shirt, I took the pics in the same shirt so it would allow more focus on the lips 😛 )

Day 1, ombré lip using NYX products

I didn’t realize until I’d grouped the swatches together but I have a current love affair with OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics). I have a review coming soon of their products but if I had to pick my favorite lip look from all the days, it’s actually Day 2, Anita lip tar. The pics don’t even capture how gorgeous it is. Applied sheer like I did it’s a lighter brownish-red. Build it up and you get a deep, dark browned-burgundy. It’s amazing! Love it.
