So last night around 10:30 p.m, I said good night to my man and headed to the living room. I had every intention of vegging out on the couch and browsing on my iPhone 5s (which now has a cracked screen, ever since taking a dive off the foot of my bed last week) for new blogs to follow on WordPress.
Just as I was about to sprawl my body across the couch, I happened to glance over at the beautiful Michael Kohrs bag my best friend bought me for Christmas, which happened to be perched on my coffee table…(did I mention that she’s better than your best friend?) The zipper was open, and it looked really full-messy full. I thought “Wow, I need to clean that out…yesterday.” Reluctantly, I sat on the floor and got to work.
As I was cleaning gum wrappers and old credit card receipts out of my beautiful Michael Kohrs bag ( I love how that sounds),I realized that I had been carrying about a third of my lipstick/lipgloss collection around with me for quite some time. I probably don’t need to have all of these lip colors in my purse, I thought to myself. Perhaps this is a bit excessive
So, I went ahead and narrowed my carry-around for-the-lips collection down to 6 must-have items. I insist, I really must have all 6 of these products with me-always. I just must.
6 Lip Products [that I feel the need to carry around with me at all times]
- ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Color in Clueless
This is a pretty,pinky-nudish color. I bought it after hearing it was a dupe for the Kylie Jenner lipkit in Candy K. I love that it only cost 6 bucks, which is way better than Miss Jenner’s outrageous price of $30.00-doesn’t she make enough money for doing nothing? I certainly think so, which is why I bought the ColourPop version of this shade.
2. Mac Matte lipstick in Honey Love & 3. Mac Prolongwear lip pencil in Nice n’Spicy
I love this combo! It makes for a super subtle, natural nude lip. Great for pairing with dramatically made up eyes, or as part of a ‘no-makeup’ makeup look.
4. Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick in Cherry Cordial
5. Rimmel Stay Glossy lipgloss in Blushing Belgraves
My favorite gloss formula in my favorite nude color…Need I say more?
6 . Mac Lipstick in Rebel
I honestly tried to talk myself out of throwing this color back into the bottomless hole that is my purse.Then, I thought about its pretty purpley pink (maybe more like pinky purple?) color and how irresistibly gorgeous it is. Back in the bag it went!
