Beautiful beach day

Took a spur of the moment trip to Ocean Beach.  It was a bit cold, water was freezing, but the sun was shining quite nicely.  It's such a peaceful thing, to watch the waves come in and out is really meditative for me.

I have the biggest girl crush on her.  She's gorgeous and I loved everything she wore to the Transformer Premieres.

Lancome Color Design Lipsticks in:
(Left --> Right)
B-List, It-Girl, Pink Attitude, The New Pink, Natural Beauty


Swatches in order - No Flash:


I don't wear lipstick very often so I was happy to find that all of these colors are fairly neutral.  # 1, 2, and 5 are my absolute favorites and I switch between them regularly.  # 3 and 4 have a bit too much of a shimmer and are good for night time.  I also sometimes dab a bit of either of these two to the middle of my lips for a dash of color with the neutrals.

The lipsticks are a very light consistency, creamy but not sticky.  The colors don't stay on well if I am eating, drinking, etc.  It is very light that sometimes I forget I have lipstick and its also quite nourishing to my lips making them feel soft and smooth.  

I got all 5 as sample from my Lancome order.  Generally I would not buy it because I just can't talk myself into paying $20+ for a lipstick.  I do realllly like these lipsticks however so will probably buy more colors in the future.
