My mouth has had a rough week. I went to the dentist for a check-up and cleaning on Monday and ended up having some broken old fillings replaced. One of the anesthesia injections hit a blood vessel and muscle tissue inside my cheek (thanks, Mr. Dentist!) and my face is still swollen, sore, and bruised five days later.

Meanwhile, I happened to pass  a LUSH boutique and noticed that the Holiday 2016 collection is already starting to appear, including Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Tint. (Cue up the Tchaikovsky…) I felt like my mouth and I deserved a treat, so I made this impulse purchase.

You may remember Axiology from my review of Boxwalla’s April subscription box. Well, I’ve been getting so much use from my Axiology Natural Lipstick in Noble that I ended up using a coupon code to order a lipstick in a new shade called Vibration.

Axiology describes Vibration as “A scarlet wash with a glint of pink, Vibration is a sunset glow on a desert rose,” which is very much on-target.
