Every girl has her vices right?
Mine are lip gloss and carmel macchiatos!
Yep, I am completely and totally head over heels for these amazing little luxuries in life. Small comforts that make you feel fabulous. I think I have now tried almost every lip gloss out there and have finally found some of my favorites. I thought I would save you the time of trying a million different brands and tell you my go-to’s and most-loved favorites:
Long lasting gloss :L’OREAL Paris, Colour Caresse. I love that it is a stain and a gloss and it truly stays on (yes, I wore it on a run yesterday, had a carmel macciatto and a bit of lunch and when I got home it was still on my lips and while most stains dry out my lips, this kept them moist and glossy.
Color: MAC lipglass wins for their colors and creativity in each season. I love MAC gloss but I go through it so quickly (becasue you have to reapply often) but that being said, it’s perfect for a pop of color or a look that you are willing to reapply every 30 mins. Perfect for photoshoots.
Tube Appeal: Chanel Lip Gloss! It comes in a long square tube, chic and sophisticated black top with the Chanel logo adorning the top. It’s my favorite gloss to look at or see in my purse.
My All-Around Favorite: Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss by Bare Escentuals. No matter how many lipglosses I try, I always go back to this one, it has the perfect amount of tingle, shine, and a little sparkle. I love how this gloss feels on my lips. It’s perfection in a clear tube :)
Ok that takes care of the Glossy… now onto the Carmel MASTERPIECE!
As stated by Tom Hanks in one of the best movies ever~ “The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who don’t know what the hell they’re doing or who on earth they are, can, for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self: Tall! Decaf! Cappuccino!” ~You’ve Got Mail
How to order the best carmel macchiatto you have ever tasted:
Order a Grande Carmel Macchiato
Single Shot (ask them to fill the extra space from not having the second shot with milk)
Tall Carmel Macchiato in a Grande cup with Extra non-fat milk and extra carmel (usually this order doesn’t go over as well with the baristas as the first one)
… there you have it my friends, best drink ever! Why single shot? It tastes better and you can have 2 a day ! haha..
