Who’s Afraid of the Big, Bold Lip?

alexis+bledel+orange+red+lips Whos Afraid of the Big, Bold Lip?

Who’s afraid of the big, bold lip? Surely not Alexis Bledel. Just look at how she fabulously flaunts an orange-red kisser.

Let this be a lesson to all of you who fear the saucier shades on the color spectrum. Minimal eye makeup and a bright lip color make her unearthly baby blues pop. Alexis sported a similar look at the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 premiere last year, when she opted for a vibrant, blue-pink lipstick.

Get Naked: Troy Jensen’s Favorite Nude Lip Colors

kim+kardashian+nude+lips Get Naked: Troy Jensens Favorite Nude Lip Colors
It’s no secret that I absolutely adore and envy Kim Kardashian’s makeup. If there was a Face Off type situation, and I had to swap mugs with someone, Kim would be high on my list…primarily because I cannot get enough of the way she wears a nude lip. Aside from Angelina, nobody does it better.

nars+belle+de+jour+and+giza Get Naked: Troy Jensens Favorite Nude Lip ColorsSo Troy Jensen‘s recent post about his favorite nude lip colors was a godsend for a Kim copycat like me. In the photo above, Troy used NARS Belle Du Jour Lipstick topped with NARS Giza Lip Gloss.

“The colors blend beautifully with her creamy golden skin tone,” Troy says. “The art of creating the perfect nude is finding one that works with your skin tone and also the shape of your lips. Fuller lips can get away with the palest nude shades while thinner lips will need a bit more color or lip liner for definition. Whatever shade you choose, be sure to pair it with a beautiful smoky eye.”

Lipstick That Thinks It’s A Gloss: Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss Stick

 Lipstick That Thinks Its A Gloss: Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss StickI’m a lipgloss junkie. So what’s the my favorite kind of lipstick? One that wears like a gloss, natch…which is why my lipstick du jour is Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Gloss Stick. The sheer color practically melts onto lips, and the formula is surprisingly hydrating.

Pure Color Gloss Sticks are a perfect product for color-shy gals, because the sheer shades are oh so flattering. But while I’m usually a staunch advocate for a pop of color on the pout, I must admit that I can’t get enough of Pure Color Gloss Stick in Nude Almond; it’s as if Estee Lauder made this shade just for me. Thanks, EL…I can cross “find the perfect nude lipstick for spring” off my to-do list.

Remember When MAC Lipstick Looked Like This?

 Remember When MAC Lipstick Looked Like This?

For years, I have been saving my empty MAC lipstick tubes for the Back to MAC program. But despite my best recycling intentions, the tubes have never gone back to the MAC counter. I keep forgetting.

Just how forgetful am I? Check out the tube on the left. I’m embarrassed by how old it is.

Any old-heads remember when MAC lipstick tubes looked like this? Holla at me.
