One of the challenges I have given myself is to get back to wearing makeup. Although I used to wear makeup often before my son, I have never had a nice variety of lipsticks. I usually stick with a nude Mac lipglass such as Spite or C-Thru and wear that baby with everything. Well lately, I have started stepping out of my comfort zone. I will admit, when I first apply the lipstick, I feel like Homey the Clown. I've had to force myself not to remove it on a few occasions.
Here are two of my recent experiences with lipstick. I have had NYX Shocking Pink lipstick for quite sometime. I believe I may have gotten it while I was expecting. I believe I read somewhere that it is a dupe for some Mac lip color (don't make me lie). Any who, on Thanksgiving I was wearing dark colors with a colorful scarf. I decided to give Shocking Pink a try. I am glad I did! I was very pleased with the results.
Today I decided to step WAY out of my comfort zone and try something totally different. A few months ago I saw one of my fav IG chicks wearing a very pretty shade of brown. I stalked and stalked but I could not find the particular shade and brand she was wearing. My search lead me to my beloved Pinterest and I discovered another NYX lipstick Maison. Apparently this shade is very popular, I was searching for Maison and two other shades for a little longer than I anticipated. I am happy to have found Maison but I will be even happier to find the other two. But back to Maison, when I got home and tried on the lipstick, I felt foolish. A brown lippie looks very different on people and mine certainly did NOT look like the inspiration picture. I decided to try the lipstick again after applying a foundation and eyeliner. I will admit that I am not head over heels for this color but the longer I wore it today the more I liked it! Now how special is that? Any who, here is a pic of me this morning in my NYX Maison.
What about you? Do you have a favorite lippie? Who is it by? Help this milady resurrect her
