The Best of the Best, Volume #011

Thank goodness it’s Friday, yeah?  This week went by surprisingly slow… but in good way.  Like yesterday, I thought it was Friday, and I was ecstatic when I realized it was Thursday.  I spent the morning doing blog-esque activities, and my tummy is growling like something fierce, so I better toast up a bagel (mmm!) before it turns on me, LOL.

What are your weekend plans? Mine are…

I wish I could say I had TONS OF FUN planned, but no, I don’t.  In fact, I think I have the exact opposite.  I have a 1-unit, 1-day class to attend from 8am to 5pm on Saturday on leadership for b-school.  Zzzz!  On Sunday, I need to try to get my butt into gear and start studying/outlining for my finals in law school.  I really hope your weekend plans are better, so I can live vicariously through you! :)

Urban Decay Gravity Lipstick

The Scarlet Season: Urban Decay Gravity Lipstick

Urban Decay Gravity Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a rich, ruby-esque shade of red with maybe a little tinge of raspberry in it. It has a very soft microsparkle of red, but overall, it has a creamy, glossy finish. All of Urban Decay’s lipsticks have a faint sweetened caramel brulee kind of scent, though I don’t find much taste in the lipsticks from my experience. Gravity applies easily and leaves lips hydrated, with the color wearing four to six hours easy. I’d say this is definitely one of my favorite shades I’ve discovered so far during the series.

What about you? Would you wear this red?

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!
