I did it! I finally met up with Brianna and Mo. Brianna and I had actually wanted to meet up pretty much since August when she found my blog. We clicked right away because we both went to UofA, both were majoring in psychology, and were both dating guys in the Air Force. And then I "met" Mo recently through an Arizona Bloggers chat.
Admittedly, I was really nervous. Which is funny, because my life practically revolves around meeting girls I first "meet" online. Being a USAFA girlfriend, I have talked to girls online before meeting them in person more times than I can count. But you just never know what will happen in person! You could totally click online, but then meeting in person could be a disaster. So of course, I took some precautions.
Luckily it wasn't needed. ;)
Getting ready for my first blate, I knew I had to look my best. I usually just wear yoga pants and foundation every day...but that just wouldn't cut it this time. I decided to use my new RimmelLondon Moisture Renew Lipstick that I got from Influenster as my first VoxBox! I was so excited when I found out I qualified. I don't usually wear lipstick, and get really nervous when I do. I have really thin lips and I still don't think I can completely pull off the bold lip, but I still feel pretty fierce when I do wear it. This lipstick is a lot more pink than red (color: as you want victoria), but I still really like it. It definitely lived up to it's name and is extremely moisturizing as well. I only have one other lipstick that I currently wear and like but compared to this I can see how dry it is. I'm definitely a chapstick type of person, I always like my lips to feel moisturized, so this lipstick is the perfect mix of vibrant color and moisture! Plus, the texture is nice a "soft" if you will, and not sticky at all.
So I finally made it to the blate! We met at Frost for gelato and then walked around the mall. We each shared our love stories *awh* and just talked about everything from blogging to bratty children. And in true blogger fashion, we got at least one picture together.
As you can see from this picture, my lipstick definitely faded just from eating the gelato. That might bother some people, but I personally don't mind at all. I still had a subtle color to my lips and just added some chapstick over it to keep it feeling nice and moisturized.
So overall, I am very satisfied with both the blate and the lipstick! It was so nice to meet some fellow bloggers and I hope we can do it again soon! And I will definitely be going back to this lipstick for other big days where I want to look a little nicer than normal.
I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
