My mom asked what my final requests were as far as using her discount at Neiman Marcus. It was her last week there, so I needed to buy whatever I wanted now, with her discount, instead of paying full price later (Like I even would). That was basically my only chance to really be able to afford luxury.
I thought about it, and thought about it.
"What is one luxurious item you've been lusting after?"
Well, a Chanel bag. But even with her discount, I'd never be able to afford it.
So I scratched that.
So, my next thought was Yves Saint Laurent.
but not just anything...
a Yves Saint Laurent lipstick.
(You have to say that with a french accent. have to. )
The creme de la creme of all lipsticks.
The packaging itself is to die for. I mean, this thing is heavy.
It just screams luxury to me.
I tried on a bunch of shades and finally got sick of staring at my lips so I randomly picked a shade I liked.
When I got home and looked at it more closely, I giggled.
Of course I'd pick the shade called "Pink in Paris"
and 13 happens to be my favorite number.
Hmm... Was it made for me?
It made me smile because I swear I didn't do that on purpose.
But it's the perfect shade of pink.
It's subtle, but you can tell it's there, you know?
I really like it and I feel like it's my perfect 'everyday' shade.
Because sometimes in life
you just need a little luxury.
A few people asked to see the lipstick on, so I took this rather embarrassing photo to show you.
I'm such a dork.
