Cheap Thrills

I was at the D&D Building the other day & it was terribly gray & rainy outside.  I caught a glimpse of my pale face in a mirror & felt an overwhelming desire to find the brightest lipstick that I could get away with.  I immediately high tailed it across the street to the MAC counter at Bloomingdale's (with a quick stop to inhale the below- a Magnolia chocolate cupcake with lavender vanilla buttercream- my favorite cheap thrill EVER). 
Rihanna was blaring at the MAC counter & the sales girls were looking fierce in their edgy, colorful makeup.  I was starting to feel much more hopeful & my full blown cupcake high was definitely helping things.  I spotted this sexy little tube of bright pinky-coral lipstick & knew it was the one- MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Full Speed.  Great name too, makes you want to go tear things up!  It's the perfect color & consistency - not too opaque & lipstick-y but more of a slightly shiny & moisturizing gloss with the depth of a lipstick.  This will be my summer staple.  My little jaunt cost me less than $20 & all was right in the world if only for a few fleeting moments : )
