Lipping Off

I have loved the bold, vampy lip looks that have come off the runways this season and last.  Taking full advantage of the trend I have worn some shades darker than usual this past fall.  (We're talking Black Maroon back in October folks)  There is so much fun to be had playing with lipsticks, balms, stains ect...  One makeup item I requested for Christmas was the new LipSurgence matte lip tint by Tarte.  I fell in love with the color Fiery and have been wearing it every other day.  It is a great matte color, and goes on silky smooth, plus it's cruelty free.  Another one of my faves, (purchased last year but seen on me here) is Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Elle.  It is so pigmented!  One might be frightened away at first look, fearful of neon pink lips.  But just a couple dabs of this peppermint oil infused lip stick is all you need and you can create a varying amount of intensity.  It makes for the perfect spring pout!

  1. I have always loved a bold lip on other people, but have never been a fan of it on myself. I'm not sure why, but it always comes off as kind of harsh looking on me. You on the other hand look gorgeous as always!

  14. So funny! I just posted about my favorite lipsticks today and tarte and stila both made the list! I love the matte tarte lipstick I have so I'll have to try the tint! And I love Stila's liquid lipstick, it goes on like gloss but dries to look like matte lipstick and stays put forever! Those booties are so dang cute too.
