Lippie of the day - Nars Rikugien

This is one of Nar's Satin Lip crayons . Such a nice color and the texture works on older lips (this is something that is becoming a regular part of my assessment of a lip product).  I think this color would look pretty on any woman.  As usual, this is just the lip color, no primer or lip pencil underneath. (Although I am beginning a comparison of lip primers and I'll post my results once I get to try a few.)

Lippie of the day - MAC Grande Dame

Lately I'm loving MAC's Mineralize lipsticks. The formula feels moisturizing and it doesn't settle into my lip lines, which sadly is becoming more important to me.  One of my favorite colors on days when I want to fly under the radar is Grande Dame. It's a beautiful subtle pink.

Lippie of the day - Drop the F Bomb

Today's lipstick is one of my favorite reds, Urban Decay's gloss pencil in F Bomb. It's an amazing red - wear it when you're feeling great and want to stand out, or when you're not feeling so good but want to look like you are.  Red gives me confidence.

Lippie of the day

I did this topic a few times last year, and I need to start it again. Just a quick post to let people see different lipsticks, plus it motivates me to look through my lipsticks instead of using the same ones day after day.
This post I'm showing a permanent MAC lippie (which is my preference, why show a sold out limited edition lipstick that people can't go buy?), I actually got this one recently when I Back to Mac'ed some old items.  I was looking for a pinkish-nude, this one was more pale pink on me but I love it.  The name of it is Fanfare.  It's a creme sheen and I love that it doesn't settle into my lip lines. It's perfect for a toned-down, "no make-up" day.
