Lipstick

Here I am with NO lipstick. I own a bunch of lipstick but I hardly ever wear it.

I blame Scott, when we were first married I had just put on a Clinique lipstick called NudeNude. I walked seductively in the room & Scott said "Did you eat a purple popcicle or something?"

NudeNude is too much for my man. He likes me a naturale, but I do like to get dolled up.

There is just something terribly "dressed up" about lipstick to me. I used to feel that way about mascara but I wore it for a week straight then I wasn't as freaked out by it.

That's what I'm going to try here- you guys tell me which color you like best, then I'm going to try to wear it for a week & see if it becomes normal.



P.S. Please, PLEASE IGNORE my scary faces. Reasons I look weird:
1. If I smile then my lips disappear (then you can't see the lipstick)
2. I haven't slept well in DAYS (kids + husband coughing all night)
3. I am wearing a hat b/c we had some hat-hair issues

Is it just me or am I a bit saucier with darker lipstick?

kaitlin said...

i like #3 and #5.
and #1 but its not as obvious that you are wearing it. which could be a good thing. could be not a good thing.

Katie said...

I like 5 and 6, but none of them look bad on you. You could wear any of them with the right outfit.

Dad said...

I vote for 2, 5, and 6. Classy, but not tacky. More intense colors like #4 are great for a night out dancing, a restaurant, outdoors, or anywhere the lights will be dim. Under low light, the subtle things disappear.

Dawn said...

#6 for sure

Kristal said...

i also vote 5 or 6, five being my favorite... I feel weird wearing lipstick too, but mostly because it leaves that awful taste in my mouth. perhaps I will try to wear lipstick sometime too

Danielle said...

number 5 and number 6. i like them lots! and i really like your outfit in your post below...with the stripes and hat and the awesome sunglasses! SO cute!

I'm jumping on the bandwagon with 5 & 6. I like the little shimmer that 6 has. I think 5 looks very natural and beautiful, which is very you!

Matt said...

Definately #4, and then go around kissing everyone on the cheeks/forehead!! Hotdog yeah

Debbie said...

my favs for every day are 2, 5, 6. I'd say 3, 4 if you're going out at night or something with the hubs or girls night out. :P)

Aunt Susie said...

For everyday at home, I think #2 looks the best. For stepping out, depending on your outfit, #3-6 would look good. I think that #1 is too plain for you.

Katie said...

Oh, and by the way, I just started wearing lipstick this last year (finally found a shade I love) and it makes me feel all dressed up too.

Shauna said...

i am a HUGE fan of the #4, the bright red is HOT. I say rock it anytime like that rockstar diaries girl. You look GOOD in that! It would be all over my teeth if i tried it.

Cindy said...

I like 2 and 5 the best! It brings out something in your eyes! Love the lipstick idea!

Audra said...

I like 1 or 6

stephanie said...

Seriously, any of them! Maybe not 6, but definitely 3! Some of your commenters are shy of the brighter colors - but that's what lipstick is about now, and it totally works with your style.

Smithy said...

There is no reason why you shouldn't be wearing 1, 2, or 5 on a daily basis with no reason for putting it on except "just because"

Julia said...

You are so funny! I vote #6.
I have a ton too but always chicken out wearing them. I'm more of a gloss kinda gal. :)

M said...

Number 5 is my first choice, number 6 is my second choice.

Oh, and I read in a magazine once that if you do up the eyes, you should play down the lips, and vice versa. So if you go for the bright lipstick, just do a minimal eye--like just mascara on curled lashes.

After I read that, I started noticing that that's what all the chic celebrities do, so there must be something to it.

Esther Noelle said...

Yeah 5 is my top choice like others have said! Like Heather said, it could be for every day!
