The week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve is an interesting one. While we lose track of the days, it is also a time where we are forced to be nostalgic as we look back on the past year. 2017 was quite a year for this personal blog of mine.

November 2017: My Favorite Nude Lipsticks

If nude nail polishes were my partners-in-crime this year, then nude lipsticks were my obsession. I wanted to try them all—or at least as many as I could get ahold of. A few dozen swatches later, here are some of my favorite nude lipsticks that I discovered this year, from peach to pure chocolate. READ IT HERE »
