so to many choices when it comes to lip colors. I think sometimes it’s downright overwhelming! I’ve been on the hunt for a good red and pink color that looks good but haven’t had the best of luck finding anything that works for me. Especially when it comes to red. I have fair skin and any time I have tried to wear a red lip color it makes my skin look pink…not the look I’m going for! (Gwen Stefani can pull it off so why can’t I!!!) I think I’ve finally realized red lips will not work for me…sad, but true. If you have fair skin and have a red that works for you I would LOVE to hear about it!
The next color I’ve searched for is a bright pink. I have seen so many magazines with this beautiful bright (but not to bright) true pink. I then remembered a lipstick I bought a few months ago that I thought might work. I tried it on and it wasn’t what I was looking for. Instead of being a true pink it had a rose tint to it so my search will continue for my “true” pink!
When I was searching through my drawer (yes, I know it’s crazy I have an entire drawer dedicated to just lip products…glosses, lipsticks, balms…you name it I’ve got it!!) for the pink that I thought would work I realized I have a lot of colors that I haven’t even used and some I have only used once just sitting there. So instead of buying any more I’m going to “shop” from my drawer and see what I like. (It might be hard not to buy anything for my lips, but I’m up for the challenge.) If a color I try on doesn’t work I’m not going to put it back in the drawer…I will either pitch it or gift it! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve put on lipstick and an hour later I see my reflection in the mirror and really don’t like the color on me. Instead of taking it out of my drawer I leave it there to collect dust and take up room. I’ll be posting some pics of my “lips of the day” and those will be the colors that I think are keepers. I’m excited to see what my drawer looks like at the end of this! Today I’m showing you Maybelline ColorSensational Lipcolor in “Make Me Pink” 135. I would describe this color as a neutral pink. It doesn’t dry my lips out (bonus) and I think it works good with my skin tone. Another thing I like about this color is that it is a great “go to” daytime color and would be great at night with a smoky eye!
