Yes I have an obsession….and I have to admit, I love it. I’ve always had a keen interest in makeup, but most recently, my love for lipstick has grown. There are so many shades to choose from – classic pinks, flattering nudes, bold brights and show stopping reds. You name it, it’s out there.
My collection began with traditional deep berry-colored shades by Revlon. I liked how the color looked with my complexion and it was affordable costing only $8.
After a bonding trip to the King of Prussia Mall’s Sephora with a few friends last summer, and wandering the aisles of the store, I broadened my growing collection and bought a bright berry. Well, I have to say it was brighter that what I was used to wearing. And there I fell in love with Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick.
Then the trouble really began, I discovered ColourPop….ColourPop is an online, Los Angeles based makeup company. All of their products are “100% baby-friendly, bunny approved and only tested on humans.” And on top of that, they offer every shade one could possibly imagine, all at an extremely affordable price of only $5!! Who could possibly ask for more?
My wallet will continue to shrink as my lipstick collection of only fifteen colors grows. I will be experimenting with these new shades for the spring and will be adding hopefully only just a few to my list.
And keep an eye out for this Spring/Summer’s hottest lipstick trends, including shimmery gold and pale nude pink.
