It’s too frequent that I find myself getting stuck in a routine. Sometimes I get so busy that I end up in a predictable pattern–not just in life but as it relates to beauty products and my makeup choices, too. For most of the winter and spring I have stuck with neutral colors and a natural look, rarely stepping outside of that familiar comfort zone. I accepted the challenge of adding a renewed sense of energy to my daily life with Crystal Light Liquid–from Mellow to Bold and everywhere in between.
I am not new to Crystal Light as a brand and have proudly tried almost every flavor they offer in powder form. When I heard they were making a liquid product, I was excited to say the least. You see, with liquid you can add as much (or as little) as you want. The flavor experience is customized to each person–a novel idea!
Watching the transition as I added more (and more, and then more) flavor gave me another inspiration. It’s like that bold, intense lipstick that seems scary in the tube but can be lightly applied for a natural, just bitten look or can be worn full-on, show-stopping audacious. So, I dug through my makeup collection for the boldest lipstick I own, which I have sadly neglected for quite some time.
Tom Ford in True Coral–not for the faint of heart! But with my new found courage, I did a little test…
Wearing Tom Ford True Coral, lightly dotted/blotted. Quite down-to-earth looking, right? Well, that’s just the beginning. Vibrant, bold color is what I’m after so…
Mission accomplished! I can’t believe how changing the smallest thing (like the intensity of color–or flavor) can make such a huge difference! Fun and vivacious, this is certainly both!
I tried several of the new flavors of Crystal Light Liquid, and I really couldn’t choose a favorite. But, if I had to guess, I think I will run out of Pomtini first. This is such a great idea for those of us who love water and want to make sure we stay hydrated and healthy but also have a sweet tooth. It quenches my thirst and satisfies my sugar craving–without any of the actual sugar and calories.
