To Talk About Lipstick

     Hello all! I was going through all of my lipsticks recently, and realized that most of them were all very similar shades of red, with a few pinks thrown in. Seems like the perfect opportunity to throw some out right? I put most of them on and weeded out the ones that didn't have the best texture and staying power and ended up with 3. I have lately been seeing a lot of darker reds out and about, especially with fall happening, so I decided to pick up one myself. I'm very fair, with blonde hair and blue eyes, which are all such light features that I was worried that any kind of dark lip could be too severe. Leave it to Burt's Bee's to clear that issue up for me! I had seen an ad for their new lip crayons, and the model was wearing a deep red shade that had a lot of color, but somehow looked sheer. I immediately went to Walgreen's and located the mythical creature. I've never had a better lipstick! It feels like a balm, but with minimal shine, and the dark red layers so well. My other three lipsticks are two reds and one pretty shell pink, all serving different purposes. See how below!

1. Burt's Bee's Lip Crayon in Redwood Forrest. My new favorite!
2. Revlon Super Lustrous Lip-color in Soft Shell Pink . This is the only non-red lipstick I own and it adds the nicest blush color to my lips.
3. Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in Coral (no longer available, similar here) . A orange-red that I really only wear in the summer. It's kind of like my wild-card!
4. Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip-color in Ruby Red . This one's a more classic red, a basic if you will. It's perfect with a white T and blue jeans.
