I love lipstick as you can see above in my profile picture, note to self i need to take more pictures of myself and not my cookies lol . I have a love /hate relationship with it though, I don't wear it everyday but when i do wear it i end up taking it off sometime while I'm out. For some reason it makes me feel like i don't know what to do with my lips if that makes any sense . I have made it a goal to start keeping it on as long as possible lol . I have seen alot of articles from men's magazines about how men hate when women wear bright lipstick or lip gloss. I am lucky enough to have a boyfriend who likes it but i say who cares! If you feel better ,wear it! I have heard for people with fair skin like myself that an orange tinted red is the best but i don't agree i hate red/orange lipsticks this bright red is retrofuturist by lime crime and I love it. I also live by the rule that you have to pick dramatic lips or dramatic eyes, unlike most of the tacky makeup you seen in NJ . If your going to wear a bold lipstick wear a natural color eye, if your going to wear a bold eyeshadow look wear a neutral color lip. I did freelance makeup for about two years and learned alot during that time. I'm no celebrity makeup artist and these are all my opinions .
My other favorite brand is NARS and my two favorite colors in my bag at Barbarella which is a peach nude color i like to put NARS striptease gloss over it and my favorite bright pink is schiap. Schiap can be found on sephora.com I was told they didn't make it anymore but i think i was lied to since its online lol .
