NARS Heat Wave
I recently acquired NARS Heat Wave lipstick after seeing it on about five different bloggers, looking absolutely mind-blowing on each of them. I knew I had to add it to my arsenal, however small it is, of must-have reds.
I also picked up MAC's Such Flare from the Glitter & Ice collection, as it reminded me of a cross between Ruby Woo and NARS Jungle Red, two of my other faves.
As it's been over a year since I did a post about red lips, I thought it was time I re-introduce my faves, including my two newest additions. You can read my past posts about red lips here, here, and also here.

I realized after taking all the photos for this post that I forgot to include Chanel's Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon. I store it, as well as some of my other Chanel lipsticks, in a mug on my dresser, away from my other reds! I wanted to give it a quick mention anyways, as it's a gorgeous red, and very different from the others I own. It's a deep, blood red, with a thick gloss-like consistency. It's a bit difficult to apply because of the formula, but it's really stunning nonetheless.
I also forgot to take a photo of all the lipsticks lined up together. Total blogger fail. I may have to update this post later to amend those two errors. :P
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! One of the downsides of working at Disney is that I always have to work Thanksgiving and Christmas - but it never gets me down for long. I love the holidays too much! Also, if you're wondering, I didn't do Black Friday shopping (I worked 10 hours on Thanksgiving and got home, exhausted, after midnight - all I cared about was sleep!), but I did get some Christmas shopping done over the weekend. Lots of the Black Friday deals were still in place, too, so I'm glad I didn't waste my time/energy!
Next up *crosses fingers* will be my November favorites! I wanted to take pics earlier today, but it was cloudy and raining all day, so that was a no-go.
Oh, and before I go, kitty pics!
See you all soon, and hope you're having a great week - and getting into the holiday spirit, wherever you are! :D
Thanks for reading!
