Lip Service

Lately I’ve been somewhat obsessed with bright lipstick shades. Sure, it’s a popular trend at the moment, but honestly I’ve always found lipsticks a little annoying. First, there’s the whole reapplying thing and then I used to think bright colors just didn’t look good on me so I stuck to natural lip tones.

And then one day, I walked into MAC and said, “I need a beautiful, bright, red lipstick color” and my prayer was answered by the women who introduced me to Ruby Woo.  It was love at first blot and ever since then, I’ve been hooked on the bright, daring lip shades. Keep in mind, I don’t wear them to go to work, but when I go out at night or on the weekend, I bring out the bold colors like it’s nobody’s business.

Here are three bright, rich shades I’m obsessed with at the moment and I think they are perfect for summer and look good on everyone (I’ve had girlfriends who have lighter pigmentation then me try them on and they look good on them too).

*Ruby Woo (the perfect shade of red)
*So Chaud (has an orange undertone that really looks great with any outfit)*Impassioned (perfect pink for a summer day in your bikini)
(In order from left to right, So Chaud, Ruby Woo and Impassioned)
These three colors are all from MAC. I recommend going light on the eye makeup and going strong on the lip color and cheeks. I promise you’ll look glam!

I ended up with two new shades this summer, both were gifts. RUBY WOO!! and Girl About Town. I've never been one to wear red but Ruby Woo makes me feel dressed up.
