Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton; no, I'm not just listing off female politicians but these are what I name suit types. Glasses not included in the Sarah Palin. And while I dawned the Sarah today at work, I took a different approach last week. Does my outfit here qualify as a suit? Well it's a matching top and skirt after all, so why not?! Now the real question is..what should I name this suit? The Richard Simmons?

Brilliant Earth: Personality Style Challenge

Brilliant Earth: Personality Style Challenge

How would you describe your style?

Are you...

A blue jeans and tee kind of girl?
Drawn to floral, feminine styles, and patterns?
Glamorous and into stilettos and glitter?
Minimalist, no-nonsense elegant style?
Into vintage dresses and thrift store shopping?
Strive to be on the cutting edge?

For me? Well, it depends on the day! Except maybe the thrift store option.. But I can't say that my style really has a definition. I just wear what I like! And as I'm picking out my dress for a dinner tonight, I'm feeling "into stilettos and glitter" so that's what I chose to style for the Brilliant Earth Style Challenge.

What kind of girl are you?

Big Bold NYC

NYC Plumping Lip Gloss
I am never much of a lip gloss girl. I usually stick to my lip balm or bold coloured lip sticks so I didn't know how I was going to feel about going to the gloss but I loved this one! The colour, Big City Blush, was subtle and the amount of shimmer was just right, I didn't feel like a 14 year old girl going to a junior high dance. You feel a tingle on your lips, which makes me think it is doing something to plump those bad boys up. 

NYC Big Bold Curl
If I was going to leave the house with just one make up item on, I would definitely choose mascara. So I was excited to try the Big Bold Curl out and compare it to my go-to brands. The curved brush made it application very easy; however, I usually like a thinner brush to get to every bit of the lash. It wasn't clumpy, was long lasting, and was dark enough to make those lashes pop.

There is something about this outfit that made me feel like such a girl. Could it be the pale pink flowy top? Lacy heels? Or maybe it's just hormones. Needless to say, I felt estrogen-filled in all my pink bling.
