Seeing Pink


Usually, I’m more of a peachy-coral lover in the summer, but recently, I’ve been loving all of the pink things. Pink glosses, sheer pink nails, deeper pink lip liners [that Kylie lip tho].

During study breaks, I started watching Girls – for the first time. I had heard mixed reviews in the past, so it was never something that I felt I should watch. That is, up until a week ago when I was scrolling through HBO Go on Sunday night [still sad that GOT’s latest season is over], and decided, “why not” when I came across Girls. Save a few cringe-worthy scenes, I. am. obsessed. Especially with Marnie and her sort of girl-next-door outfits and fresh makeup look. Girl always looks stunning with a bit of mascara, paired with soft pink cheeks and lips.

So what have I been doing the past few days? Combing through my entire makeup collection looking for soft pink glosses and blush. The above Marc Jacobs lacquer in Pink Flamingo is a great match – semi-sheer, glossy, and non-stick. And, ok, I may have picked up a few more pink things recently – stay tuned later this week.

Now I want to ask you: 1. are you as obsessed with Girls as I am? Who’s your favorite Girl? And, 2. what are your favorite soft pink lipsticks and blushes?

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

    I’ve been a fan of Girls since the beginning–loved season 1, the middle seasons get kinda weird, but the past season was good!

    I’ve also heard such mixed reviews about Girls that I haven’t watched, but I totally get why you decided to watch during bar study. I watched several shows start to finish out of sheer desperation! I’ve been hearing such good things about the MJ glosses but the price always keeps me from buying…
