mistletoe mouth...

illustration adapted from this photo of jamie king

ooh girls! i am LIVING for this weather. one of the many reasons why i love cold weather is for the return of sequins and bold lips. revlon fire and ice is my new flavor of the moment, but here are my favorite bold shades of all time( in no particular order). do you have a favorite shade of red?pink?orange?

1. nars red square

2. face stockholm silk( my signature red)

3. nars heatwave

4. revlon fire and ice

5. nars cruella

6. mac ruby woo

7. revlon cherries in the snow

8. nars funny face


*also, i need more tips on how to prevent the dreaded lipstick ring. it haunts my dreams and nothing is more frightening than catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror with nothing but outlined lips-woof.

    I love to use the extra dark shades in the lipstick because they really suit my personality and the colors available here are pretty awesome. But still you have to be choosey sometime when it comes to some good functions.

Oh oh! You should try Chanel's Gabrielle. It's beautiful :) And super nourishing, which is always a plus. As for the "ring", apparently you are supposed to put lipstick on, dab it, then lightly dust powder on your lips, then apply the last coat of lipstick. Kind of a pain, but it does make it last longer.

I've heard you should colour in your lips with a matching coloured lip liner/pencil, then apply one coat, dab, and apply the second coat. I've tried this, and it works much better than just lipstick alone, but I still check it to make sure! My new year's resolution was to wear more lipstick, and this was one resolution that has changed my life =D

I always get compliments when I wear Heatwave. However, the lipstick ring - I have a solution! Seriously you'd think they'd start to pay me with all the good words I spread about Revlon Colorstay overtime (it's a dual tube thing with the color on one side and a clear gloss for a top coat). It's no joke, downside is that you need a good make-up remover to actually remove it. It's amazing and it's the only lipstick I've found that will last all night and doesn't rub off. Fo reals.
