Sterling Style did a post about how to wear bright colored lipstick and Refinery 29 talked about make-up that lasts yesterday and it got me thinking, lipstick-wise. I've always wanted to try the bright lipstick trend, but chicken out every time I try it. In fact, I don't want to admit how many unused lipsticks I currently have in my possession that mostly reside on fragments of toilet paper because I quickly wipe them off before I exit my abode. The problem is I, obviously, haven't found the right shade for me. Or at least one I'm comfortable in.
Ya see, I'm a fair lady that can tend towards the rosy side of the team. I am dying for the bright pink shade of my dreams, but always seem to find something that only brings out the rosiness in my skin; something that I'm not dying to showcase. Maybe I should go for the orange, but that's more than a little terrifying. And the red I have is quite dark and not the tomato-y red that I have in my head. Welcome to my lipstick nightmares.
Which lipsticks do you guys prefer? Do you have certain shades or brands that you like over others? How do you deal with the whole trial and error thing?
I want a lipstick fairy.
