(ABOVE) Beige, tan, or taupe with white is one of my favorite color combinations. It’s such a calming, elongating look.

Taupe Poncho and White Skinny Jeans Outfit
It continues to not feel like winter here, but I still want to wear my ponchos, sweaters, and jackets to at least try to acknowledge the season. This taupe poncho worked well for me recently, because of its light weight. I also loved how it paired with my boots and bag, creating one long, lean look.
Because my outfit was so neutral, I decided to make my lips dramatic with a deep, wine color. I love this Lip Caramel by 100% Pure. Even after attempting to wipe it off, the stain remained behind. Talk about long lasting. It’s perfect with shea butter dabbed on top, because it keeps the color moist.
Hope you’re having a sweet day or evening, wherever you are.

Note: This is the second Lip Caramel I’ve tried, and I love both for their color-staying power. (See me wearing Melon Drop.) Both of them go on like a lip gloss. However, unlike most lip glosses–which come off during a meal–the Lip Caramel color stays put. It may look like a gloss, but it has the staying power of a stain. However, unlike a stain, it stays moist on the lips even after hours of wear. Such a bonus! Because the color is intense, I like to apply it, blot it with a tissue, and then reapply and reblot until I achieve the depth of color I want. Then, I lightly dab shea butter on top to add back any moisture I removed by blotting.
