“Not only am I obsessed with the name Cat Lady, because, well, duh I’m obsessed with my cat, but I love a monochromatic moment with the makeup, and this neutral really complements any warm eye-and-cheek combo perfectly.”

"This is the perfect shade for all complexions. Not only is it creamy and comfortable, but it also pairs perfectly with any makeup look. It will keep your lips looking hydrated and full all winter long."
“This purple berry color is the perfect shade for the season, whether you’re adding a pop of color to a cute outfit or heading to a party. I love this formula because you can make it as sheer or as opaque as you’d like by patting on a wash of color or building the color up in layers.”
