Long time no blog! I’m hoping to get things back to how they were now that I’ve left my job. Yes, I finally threw in the towel. All those who know me probably had their money on one month. Y’all lost because I lasted four whole months this time! All jokes aside, it wasn’t all bad and I actually liked it on some level. I still say it was very good for me, but now that school is back in session I never got to see my son. I was leaving for work as soon as he got off the bus and by the time I got home he’d be sleeping. There were a few other issues that made me want to leave, but I’ve been dealing with them all along so I can’t say that either was taken into consideration. So there you have it. I’ll revisit the work thing when my son is either old enough to stay home alone or he’s off to college. Right now my family need me here. I have to ensure he’s eating healthy meals (something that just doesn’t happen at Grandma’s), doing his homework, and studying. I miss our nightly walks and snack runs. I mean if we eat a salad for dinner and get our steps in afterward it only makes sense to treat ourselves a little. So after weeks of struggling with what to do I finally made my decision. And for once I’m at peace with a decision I made.

Before I get on to my review I just want to let you know what’s been going on. I finally worked on inventory and input every single makeup/skin care item into a fancy little (big?) spreadsheet. I color coded it so that I now know what I have blogged and what I still need to blog. I also decluttered and reorganized everything. Now I’m working on an updated post on how I have everything organized. I’m obviously going to break the post up into a few parts because it’s going to be very photo heavy. In the meantime you can catch a sneak peek on my Instagram Stories. So if there’s anything in particular you want to see or know please let me know in the comments. Now onto my review.

Back when I purchased the Sol and Mar Palettes I also purchased the Paradise City Lip Bundle. This bundle contains 3 of their Ultra Blotted Lip in Vitamin Sea which is an orange terracotta, Ocean Ave which is a hot orange-red, and Soda Pop which is a plummy rose.

This was my first time experimenting with the Ultra Blotted Lip. I don’t really like how Vitamin Sea and Ocean Ave applied. I had to work at them a bit to even it out. Once they dried down I feel like they sucked every ounce of moisture from my lips. Soda Pop was completely different. It was super easy to apply and made for a very comfortable wear. It also happens to be my favorite shade of the trio. I think the bundle contains some really pretty shades, but 2 of the Ultra Blotted Lip products were just ok. Soda Pop is the real winner here. You can see Ocean Ave, Soda Pop, and Vitamin Sea in action below.
