A Lipstick Newbie

August 15, 2011

Well friends I am back from my lovely family reunion, and today has been a little rough. Don't ya just hate the first day back from vacation? Sadly I snapped zero pics but I did want to share my new love for lipstick. See I have always had this fear of lipstick, I really don't know how to describe it I guess I thought if I wore it would look clown-ish. I decided to take the plunge into lipstick land around the beginning of Spring and have never looked back. It seems like every trip I take to the store I have to try out a new shade! Some of my faves are:

Maybelline's Coral Crush

Cover Girl's Temptress Charmeuse

Revlon's Siren

Revlon's Soft Nude

I tried on the nude last week and I am still a little on the fence I think I need to learn some good makeup combo's to pair with it. So do you guys have any favorites? Do share!! Feed my addiction ;)! I could see a full blown obsession with lipsticks in my future ;). Anyone else with me?! Loves friends.

  2. I've been wearing 'tinted lip balm' (mine is from the Covergirl natureluxe stuff ) ALL summer. I love it because it lets a little of my natural color through so I don't have to worry quite as much that it 'matches' my skin tone.

    I'm loving the coral craze so I may have to look into this 'Revlon's Siren'. Also I'm pretty sure the 'nude' color is supposed to go well with 'dramatic eyes'.

  3. I have the same fear! I don't want to look like a little girl who played around in mommy's makeup drawer. But I have always wanted to be able to pull off red lips. Maybe I'll be brave one day.

  12. I'm on such a lipstick kick right now. I got the same exact nude color, but I wasn't totally sold either. It's too much of a brown nude, but I'm also really white so maybe thats why :)

  13. I'm a huge fan of Clinque's Black Honey "almost lipstick", you can also get black honey in a gloss at Sephora, kinda love it!

  14. I love lipstick! I think it's addicting because it's such an easy way to switch up a look. Revlon soft nude is actually one of my favs! I like to wear a stronger blush with it so I don't look too washed out. I also like the colors Peach and Fushia from that collection. I've heard great things about MAC lipsticks but have yet to try them.

  19. I love the Soft Nude one, but mine ALWAYS breaks half way through the tube! Like, clean off the base. I try every possible way to fix it but it always breaks again within 3-4 more uses. I still love it, but it looks better when I'm pale and paired with a bit darker gloss.
