Remember a little bit ago when I mentioned wanting to try lipstick? Well I broke out of my little shell and tried a couple.
I didn’t want to start with anything too expensive in case lipstick just wasn’t a match for me. I wasn’t sure what would look good with my skin tone/hair, and I just wasn’t sure how often I would wear it. I initially went out and bought two colors, a fushia and a coral/orange.
I thought I would try the coral first since it wouldn’t be as much of a jump into the world of lipstick. I chose Sonia Kashuk Coraline. I did not like it at all on the first try, so I ended up starting with the fushia.
I chose Covergirl Spellbound. I ended up really enjoying it. It made me feel grown up and like a lady. Then I tried the Coraline again, and ended up really liking it. I also found that this one lasts the longest compared to my others.

I loved lipstick so much after my first two, I decided to try out another. I chose Revlon Sweet Tart.

Since Raleigh is not the epitome of fashion and style (and who am I kidding, neither am I), I try to go for casual clothes when I’m breaking out the lipstick. I like the way lipstick makes me feel though. My one qualm (and I assume this can primarily be attributed to the fact that I got “cheap” lipsticks) is that they don’t last! Obviously I’m only putting on lipstick when I am going out, and going out involves eating and drinking.
How do you get your lipstick to last? (Oh and I think I also need tips on taking self-portraits?!)
