this one is most color accurate
I'm pretty great because I have Jasper Johns' Map hanging in my apartment for just such an occasion
this is how it looks under a lamp
I haven't really been keeping it a secret that I'm not a huge fan of Rescue Beauty Lounge anymore. I posted a while ago about how the polishes just don't last on me, and that's the biggest reason (but not the only reason) I won't throw down $20 plus $7 shipping.
Santa Fe isn't a color I would have chosen to buy on my own, and I wasn't sure I would like it. But, I absolutely love it. I love it. I think it suits my skin tone and I love how it looks on me. It's sort of a burnt orange that leans coral, and we all know how I feel about coral. It has really delicate gold and green shimmer running through it that's not visible all the time, which is my only complaint. The shimmer is what makes this orange special, so I'd like to be able to see it more often. As always with Rescue Beauty Lounge, the formula was impeccable. Thick but self-leveling and a joy to apply. I used two coats. It's still in stock if you want to purchase it here.
Thanks, Rach! This one made me really happy. I'm glad to give it a good home.
What I did this weekend:
snuggled way up in my cold-ass apartment writing two papers and one presentation. I'm still enjoying my Halloween blanket in December. Jack Skellington would be proud.
My best friend's mom makes me homemade fortune cookies. She writes all the fortunes herself. I got this one while I was struggling to write the conclusion for my paper on Carleton Watkins, and I decided to just stop thinking.
A hipster set up a Christmas tree lot at the corner of 118th and 3rd. If you zoom in you can see his sweater with a buffalo on it. I covet it. These trees smell great.
Happy Monday, all.
