Women’s Rose Petals by Walking Cradles Hope

January 1st, 2014

The stretchy top on these shoes is fantastic. I also love the heel height and the overall appearance. However, the ceiling of the shoe rubbed hard on my toes and that hurt terribly. Also, the backs of the shoes cut into my heels. That was a no-go. I hated to send them back but these did not work. I love that there are such cute shoes available in a double wide width but these really lack comfort.

Unfortunately these are going back. Just a bit too narrow and trying to widen didn’t help. I felt uncomfortable after only a couple of hours. The 10.5 WW is true to size but not wide enough. The sage color is great; it’s not sage at all but tan. Goes with everything. I love the lightweightness of the shoe and wish I could wear it comfortably. If you are truly double wide, pass on this one.

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick, Mascate

November 5th, 2013

Mascate is a bright red with orange undertones. One reviewer described it as blue-red, and I don’t see that at all. Terre de Feu is blue-red. Maybe it depends if you put a blue-toned lipliner under it or a blue-toned gloss over it. I don’t put any other color with it. I don’t usually use lipliner.

This is extremely long-wearing! Didn’t budge all day through eating, kissing, and beverages. I love that!

I recommend only if you have very white teeth. The orange undertones mean if you have any yellow tint to your teeth, this color will emphasize that. If your teeth are less than white, go with Terre de Feu. They’re both red but impact teeth differently. This is a wonderful autumn shade if you want attention. Not for the shy or shaky-handed. It is very durable and if you color outside your lip line, it will stay there unless you clean it up right away! Lean in close with a great mirror.
