Well, here’s the first of the take-my-own-photos-in-NYC outfit posts. I set up my tripod in my bedroom because I’m not yet ready to hit the streets of New York with the tripod in tow. Bear with me as I get used to this no photographer thing! 🙂
I wore this outfit to the Lush Cosmetics Emotional Brillance preview event at the Union Square location. Lush is launching the new collection on July 20th! It’s a crazy cool concept — You spin the color wheel to get a personalized color reading. You choose the three colors that stand out the most and they will uncover certain words that reveal a little bit about your current state of mind. It was so creepily accurate. I chose charm, bubbly, and believe. A Lush employee was there to explain the color readings a little bit. The first color choice (charm, in my case) symbolizes your strength or weakness. The second color choice (bubbly) represents your subconscious need. The third choice (believe) is your talent and it is what you require to achieve your subconscious need.
So here I am at Lush… I moved to the city a week prior and I’m at an event where I don’t know a single person. Charm? Let’s hope I’ve got it. Bubbly? I was needing to be more bubbly at the current time. Hey, it can be hard when you don’t have a familiar face around! Believe? I needed to believe in myself to be more bubbly.
I’ve been wearing the Bubbly lip color daily! It’s the perfect everyday shade and the texture is great — very smooth and doesn’t dry out my lips!
