Sunday Link Love, Volume #041

Happy Sunday… if you’re on the west coast, I suppose…

Whew! It’s been a LONG day, LONGER weekend, and dare I say it… so happy it’s over!  I spent the majority of my weekend at school for a course called “Spirit of the New Workplace,” which is an intensive 5-day course (which is the equivalent of a full quarter course).  I just keep telling myself it’s better than ten weeks, twice a week, just an hour and a half at a time… LOL!   I’ve got three more days to go, but hopefully I can start working on my mile long to-do list after morning classes tomorrow!

Here’s hoping your weekend was infinitely better! 🙂

MAC Explicit Lipglass

MAC Explicit Lipglass ($14.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a sheer taupe-brown kind of lipgloss.  It’s gray, it’s taupe, it’s the grayest mauve.    I think Explicit is such an interesting shade, and it works really well layered over darker, vampier shades for some shimmer and glossiness while not reducing the boldness of the lipstick itself.  Worn alone, it darkens my natural lip color just a touch while adding a ton of taupe and light brown shimmer on lips while the base color is rather sheer.  Like all MAC lipglasses, it is one of the stickier glosses on the market and has a vanilla scent.

The Sultry Season is a series of posts featuring deep, rich shades of brown, berry, plum, and wine lipsticks and lipglosses — just right for autumn — that runs through October 2010.
