I wear the skater ones myself (brushed leather), but I absolutely LOVE Vans shoes and have YET to find another shoe that holds up as well as Vans do! I have a pair that lasted me 20 years before they finally said enough (I wore daily), and the pair I'm currently wearing I've had for 10 years! There hasn't been another shoe I've bought that's lasted even close to that!
I own one MAC lipstick because they are so expensive. I picked up Velvet Teddy a while ago because I read reviews that it was the best nude for dramatic makeup. Wish I could have swatched it in the store because on its own, it's more a brown undertone on my skin instead of pink and makes me look washed out and dead. It's okay though, because I use a pink lip liner with it and it really helps even the color out to be more pink. Anyway, the formula is fantastic and it dries matte, it's extremely long wearing, and it's perfect for smooching because it doesn't come off extremely easy! 5 stars
