ITEM OF THE WEEK: Eco Lips Overnight Lip Mask | STAINED COUTURE

My lips decided to put in a rush order for the dry lips that usually comes in the winter. Actually, it’s probably due to me not properly preparing my lips for my lip obsession; matte liquid lipsticks. So, for the past few weeks, I’ve been very dutiful in making sure I regularly exfoliate my lips. However, I feel the ultimate gamechanger was introducing my lips to this overnight lip mask by Eco Lips.

I’ve been using and loving this lip mask ever since it was gifted to me a few weeks ago. Keep reading to see why this has been one of favorite additions to my nighttime skincare routine.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: October 08, 2021 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy Friday! I’m so grateful that I made it to the end of this work week. This first week of October has me feeling like this month is almost done, but in a good way. Not to mention, September was a very hectic for me, because I lost a little bit of my normalcy. However, I now know that I needed that to happen. Now, I can see how much I like and need a normal routine and schedule. Honestly, I’ve never been spontaneous and always do well with lists and schedules. So, now that I know that, I will go back to unapologetically relying on those tools in my life.

Speaking of schedules and plans, last weekend, I had plans to do some fun fall activities. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans and decided to rain all weekend. So, I’m going to make up for them this weekend, which includes a trip to a local pumpkin patch. Actually, my sister and I go to this pumpkin patch every year to get a sample of their homemade pumpkin bread. It’s so good and worth acting like you’re going to buy a pumpkin! Well, we do buy a pumpkin every year out of guilt and knowing the funds are going to a good cause.

As usual, I hope you have great weekend and check out this week’s Link-End Round-Up.

September was a chaotic month for me! Aside from turning 40, there were so many other birthday and celebrations to maneuver around. The only thing that seemed normal were the products I used up. All were products that I’ve used up before and loved. There were a couple that I loved so much that I bought the replacement before I used them up.

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2021

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2021

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2021 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy October and the beginning of spooky season! Not sure what has gotten into me, but…I think I’m want to partake in some spooky things. Of course, I will hit up a couple of pumpkin patches, but I craving some spooky things. Last year, Covid halted most “haunted” most experiences, but maybe there will be more options this year. We shall see.

October also means that month long spending freeze ended. Last month, I didn’t buy any new clothes and the little beauty products I did buy were necessities and with beauty discounts and gift cards. Therefore, I have some making up to do, because my wardrobe has been depressing me. It’s just too casual – sweats and tie dye tees – and not enough timeless and classic pieces. Plus, I need some new boots in all shapes and styles.

Honestly, this month’s Lust-Have List could’ve been nothing but clothes. However, I want and need more than clothes and you will be able to tell. So, check out the things at the top of my Lust-Have List for October.

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2021

  • Laniege Moisture Cream – I picked this laniege moisture products for my birthday gift from Sephora. Since I love the Laniege hydrating toner, I wanted to test their moisture cream. It did not let me down. It’s lightweight and moisturizes the skin so good. So, I need to buy the full-size ASAP!
  • Ally Tall Stiletto Boot – Of course, spooky season is also the beginning of boot season. The tall faux leather boots from the JustFab x Ayesha Curry collection are perfect! They’re so perfect that they also come in gold AND for wide calf sizes.
  • Plaid Double-breasted Overcoat – This coat from the Nini Lotan x Target reminds me of my coat from 3rd grade that mom bought me from Sears. It came with a red scarf and it was popular. So, yes, I want this coat. Correction: I need this coat.
  • Bamboo B Card Holder – After years of using a key wallet, I’m ready to break the team up and have my wallet go solo. I really want a card holder, because I mostly carry cards in my wallet. So, no need for the extra space. Love this Brandon Blackwood Card holder with the bamboo earring trim. Dope.
  • Pink Glass Decanter – This decanter from West Elm is gorgeous and available in a few different hues. However, I love the softness of this pink. What I don’t love is the price tag, but I’m hoping to find a cheaper alternative or this one in the local West Elm outlet soon. *fingers crossed*
