I love weddings! You get to dress up, do your hair and make up, give presents, eat yummy cake, so…
When my co-worker Kristi invited me to her wedding, I knew exactly what I was going to wear, well on my feet! Does that ever happen to you? When someone invites you to an event, and you have that one item in your wardrobe that you desperately want to wear? Story of my life! Thankfully this time I had everything I needed in my closet!
The wedding was beautiful and took place in a small town called Minneota, outside of Marshall. I’ve been to Marshall twice before, we used to do day camps there, back in my camp counselor days. So going back only felt natural!

You may have also noticed my bright lip gloss, it’s a new product I’ve recently received from Ageless Derma, and the color I picked was cranberry. And what sold me on this product were the ingredients - aloe vera, green tea extract and a hint of refreshing peppermint oil. It’s a moisturizing lip product that protects your lips. I had to give it a shot!
So after wearing it all day, here is what I have to say:
The product is indeed moisturizing, easy to apply, but can only be applied with a brush (thankfully there are so many affordable brushes out there, I, for instance, use a lip brush by e.l.f. that is only $1), and you’ll have to carry it with you!
The color it gives off is luscious and does resemble the color of cranberry, but after some time, the pigment wears off, and you end up with fuchsia looking lips. It’s also not very long lasting compared to a lipstick, but yet again, it is a lip gloss.
It’s also pricey, $15 is the retail price on the website, that’s what MAC and other department store brands charge for their lip products.
In the end, maybe I should’ve gone with Ruby, another color they offer. But I think for photo shoots and my outfit posts, this is a perfect color. Though if you are planning a long day or night out, and don’t want the hassle of reapplying this, go with a lipstick!
How did you spend your weekend? And what lip products can you recommend for fall?
