lip colors


(pictured above in NARS’ Tonkin with NARS’ lip gloss in Female Trouble)

I haven’t always been one to wear lipstick.

Over the years I preferred a moisturizing lip balm or a low shine gloss.

I still choose the latter for my day to day but there’s something about lipstick that I enjoy; it’s become an accessory of some sort.

My lip color adventures began a little less than two years ago while getting ready to attend a fashion show. My hairstylist suggested I try her OCC lip tar in Anime 

I was a little hesitant at first considering that  OCC’s line  is known for its bold colors.

That very same color is now part of my collection which ranges from Nars to Wet’n Wild.

I believe that a good lipstick can be found anywhere, although I do prefer

matte lipsticks over glossy ones.

The only  con to a matte lipstick is it can be very drying. I always apply chap stick under mine to avoid flaky lips.

Here are the four I wear regularly.


feeling a bit narcissistic here! LOL

Until next time.

      Hi beautiful Lorie! Thanks for stopping by :) Thank you for the kind words their appreciated. I have tried a few nude colors and I find that you really have to go according to your skin tone. What may be nude for a fair skinned woman may look white and chalky on our complexion. My favorite nude lipstick comes from a cheap brand I found at the beauty supply store and now that I’m out of it I’m on the hunt for a new one. I will let you know once I find it :)
      The NARS lipstick pictured above has a bit of a pink undertone. You should try it!
