When I was little, lip stick meant being grown-up. My mom wore lip stick all of time and had a rather large collection.
In high school, there was the girl, who became my best friend, and who wore (and rocked!) bright red lip stick. I use to think, "wow. She is SO confident! I wish I could wear something that bold!"
Lip stick has always had an interesting allure to me. But I feel like millennials don't appreciate, like, or wear lip stick.
I'm 23. I have dark brown eyes and hair. I have porcelain skin and yellow undertones. I am 23 and afraid of lip stick!
What shade? Gloss or stain? Shimmer or matte?! AHHHHH!
I think adding a little color is nice and a great brightener. Obviously, you don't want to age yourself by going too dark or look to young with shiny glosses - but how do you find the middle ground without wanting to give up or spending too much! Well, I'm no expert but below I will share with you some of of my favorites. :)
Burt's Bees Rhubarb Lip Shimmer
I love Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm, so I decided to try the lip shimmer. I actually tried a few shades before I realized that the Rhubarb was the best fit for me. They aren't super expensive and they keep your lips nice and moisturized It doesn't taste funny and isn't too "bold" for newbies.
POP Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon - Coral Crush
I actually got one in my ipsy bag last month and loved it! They accidentally sent me two bags, so I gave one to my mother-in-law. About a week later, she texted me and told me she LOVED it! It doesn't have the best reviews, BUT I like it. It's light weight with a decent coverage. It moisturizes well. The color doesn't last very long but my lips get dry fast and I apply chap stick at least 4 times an hour so I'm ok with the crayon.
Stila Lip Glaze - all of them!
They are light weight and not super sticky. I love the pop of color and they are reasonably priced too! You can get ones with some shimmer or ones that are more matte. I currently have Blackbherry in my purse and it's perfect for the upcoming fall.
Again, not everyone likes the same thing or can find the right color for them. I just wanted to share with you some of my current obsessions!
What are yours?!
