Lately I have been getting into make up again. I’ve always worn make up but the last few years I have gotten kind of lazy with it. I was just wearing just the basics like blush, lipstick, maybe a little powder. Sometimes eye shadow. Lately been doing a lot more with eye shadows and eyeliners again.
I always had a thing for finding the right lipstick colors though. It’s always been hard to find the right colors for myself and I’m picky. It never fails, I’ll find a color or product I love and it’s either a limited edition or they discontinue it! Ugh!
Anyway I found the perfect neutral lipstick and gloss for myself the other day and got the cheapy stuff at the drug store since I’m on a budget. I got Rimmel lipstick – Paradise 50. I like it because it’s a taupe with barely a bit of pinkish in it. Not too dark, not too light and I like that it’s not to brown or too beige. I also found the perfect color gloss to go over it. It’s Milani crystal gloss for lips – Whisper 13. It’s a flesh color with a dab of pink to it. When I put it on over the lipstick it lightens it up just a touch.
The only thing I really hate about a lot of these lip glosses is that stupid wand with the sponge applicator on the end. I hate them because you never get enough of the product on the end of it. You have to constantly dip it over and over and then you can’t really scrape the sides of the tube with that thing. I like the squeeze tubes better – unfortunately I couldn’t find the color I wanted in those. Anyway, love the colors.
