Show me a person's purse or wallet and I can tell you much about that person. Something I heard way back in college. I believe that there is some truth to this theory in our everyday lives.
In the interest of the social sciences, let us explore (cringe) my very own make-up bag.
Here are two recent acquisitions from the local WalMart. I seem to buy these in complimentary shades.
More from my local WalMart, from theMaybelline line. Totally Tofee (used as a base) and Crazy for Coffee (top layer).
These are my back-ups in case of a lipstick emergency. My all-time favorite is the one on the right from Origins Rain and Shine line (I don't know if they still carry this) - Chocolate cream. I should have bought 10 of those when I had the chance! I love the mint base of this line. This is one of the more expensive ones in my arsenal, but it is a go-to and most likely the only one that I use a lot (as a base and color).
Did you detect recurring theme --- coffee/chocolate shades?
