Cherry Culture Haul!


I remember thinking as a child that lipstick was so old woman-ish. I would watch my grandmother put on her bright pink lipstick, dust on some perfumed talc (which I couldn't help but play in) and set out about her day, and think to myself while trying on her lipstick, what's the big deal? I was in utter dislike for the stuff... the waxy feel on my lips, the smell, the taste, the texture, the blinding brightness lol... no, lipstick was not for me. And that was ok, because other than these Toddlers & Tiaras children, what 6 year old needs to be wearing lipstick?

It's funny now, that in my 20's, I've developed such a LOVE and appreciation for a great tube of lipstick. Maybe it's a way for me to remember and feel closer to my grandma, or maybe it's just an age thing, but I almost feel naked with out it. Honestly, the right shade can brighten my mood and put a little more sway in my hips... It just makes me feel like such a woman LOL I've graduated from flavored Bonne Belle chapsticks and Jordana lipglosses and it's out of control! I mean I rarely can walk into a store without picking up a new shade... it's a sickness ;-)

That being said, here's my most recent haul from cherry culture! I thought the Jordana lipsticks were a nice compromise between 6 year old me and 26 year old me... full on color with glossy shine and that trademark cherry scent! Enjoy!

L.A. Colors Eye Palettes
Jordana Lipsticks in Dessert Pom-Tini, Dessert Wine, Hollywood Red,
Cinnamon Spice, Haute Red (M) & Coffee Blend (M)
L.A.Colors Mineral Blush in Chai & Plum

Check back for the swatch post coming soon!


  1. Nice haul! I'm curious to know how you like everything.

  2. Great haul! I used to be such a gloss girl but these days I have more lipsticks that I know what to do with! *whisper* and I keep buying MORE :(

  3. So far so good Meme! I'm actually surprised at the pigmentation & staying power of the eye palettes. I did a look with the purple one and it lasted 7+ hours w/ very minimal creasing & that was w/o a primer. Not bad for under $2.

    Swatches are all done & should be up if a couple days.

    And I managed to walk in, around & out of MAC w/o picking up a single lipstick Jinz... baby steps LOL
