💝 Weekly Reading (10/22 - 10/28)
This week you may have to strain your muscles in order to relax. You’ll need to make a conscious
effort to stay balanced within yourself as we experience multiple waves and transitions through the week starting with the Sun moving into Scorpio on the 23rd, the Taurus Full Moon on the 24th, and then the Sun aligning with Retrograde Venus on the 26th.
A lot of good and bad can come this week, but be sure that we are in a time where Divine Guidance
is constantly in play and nothing ever happens without reason. Always keep in mind that there is a lesson in everything for you to learn and work through so that you can progress to something more positive and fulfilling. Most of what manifests this week will be based on the energy that you’ve been putting out into the Universe over the last month. The energy will try to match you, so pay attention to what comes up this week because a lot of it may show you where your energy control is lacking.
As always, with any week where there is a lot of mixed energy coming in it is always good to pay attention to yourself as well. Pay attention to where your mind is. If you are unable to keep an objective eye when looking at yourself, pay attention to the people you love and trust. How are they responding to you? How are you coming off to them? The people around you are here to help you learn and grow too. Don’t take them for granted. .
Last but not least, the final message for everyone is to not to get wrapped up in the illusions, fear, or anxiety that the emotional turmoil of these waves can bring. It’s easy to get stressed out and worried when the Universe starts giving you those shoves in the right direction, a lot of fear can come with that kind of change, but it is necessary for you to move forward. You will never be guided into a situation that you are not meant to be in and you will never experience pain or turmoil that is not meant to build you up into someone much stronger and more resilient.
On days when my lips feel extra dry or I know I’ll be out for 10+ hours, I prefer wearing a satin or creamy lipstick. This is probably the only creamy lipstick I own but I love it! It’s Brunette Ambition by @hm 💕
◾️Pigmentation: Pretty decent, it packs on a lot of colour with just one swipe. Can be layered easily to darken the colour without becoming too thick. This shade looks very natural on medium skin but it’s a very wearable nude for all skintones. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
◾️Formula: I really hate creamy shiny lipsticks, I almost always go for matte. But this one is good enough for picky me to tolerate as it’s not sticky at all, it doesn’t move around when I talk and it feels super light on the lips. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
◾️Wearability: It’s okay for a cream lipstick. It will go off if you eat/drink but not entirely, it leaves behind a slight tint. I noticed it naturally gets absorbed by the lips during the day so I have to reapply it every 4-5 hours if I want it to keep its full pigment and shine.
◾️Package: Super cute! It’s so sleek and pretty, I love how they combined metal and plastic (it’s all plastic but it gives a nice illusion) Not bulky I always carry it around in my purse in case my lips get too dry and I have to remove my matte lipstick. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
◾️Price: It was on the affordable side. I got it for approximately $11.7 which is pretty amazing for the quality.
