Weekend Reading, 11.12.22

Hello from the west coast! I am feeling really lucky to have made it out here on time without too many delays; we had some big storms in Charleston before I left. Tuesday is my boyfriend’s birthday. I have some very fun things planned… I am excited! Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great… enjoy this week’s list and enjoy your weekend!

    I *loved* David Chang’s podcast episode with Jerry Saltz — thank you so much for recommending! I looked it up and they had a follow up conversation: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-dave-chang-show/id1375877915?i=1000467528592

    Sign me up for Barcelona! Thanks for curating Grace. PS Your blog has so many fun tools. Like the Beauty Hub sort by brand. And you already know I love the book list. I can’t find the RMS tinted lip balm you were talking about, I think you mentioned a shade Penny Lane? Is this still a fav? I want to treat myself to a daily nude lip for zoom calls. Or even a crayon like Nars. I’m open to your suggestions if you have time (or future post request).

    • Hi Molly!
      It took me a little bit on this one. I don’t think that Penny Lane is Penny Lane is something I’ve recommended here. I could be wrong! I googled it and it looks really pretty. I did write about the RMS balms a couple years ago, as a clean dupe for Lip Glow — they are fab! https://thestripe.com/a-clean-dupe-for-dior-lip-glow/

      For an everyday nude, my two favorites are Charlotte Tilbury Pillowtalk or Kosas Rosewater. More of a lipstick than a balm but they’re both wonderful, universally flattering shades.

        Thank you for researching Grace! Yes this was it! You were wearing Peacock Lane. I may still try the Penny for my skin tone but really appreciate you finding this and vouching for the product ๐Ÿ˜‰ xx, Molly
