Fall Into It: Rich Lip Tones & Textures

The temperatures have dropped, the leaves have fallen, and all things autumn have arrived. I am totally a lipstick kind of gal, as I am a firm believer that a good lip can transform you from subpar to superb in seconds. So, it is no coincidence that I am totally here for everything rich and textured when it comes to my fall lip selections.

I recently hit the local MAC counter and picked up a few new lipsticks. I was impressed with the vast selection available for Fall/Winter 2015. MAC had all grounds covered from deep plums, to rich berries, and warm chocolates. The textures varied as well from mattes to satin finishes.

I have a love/hate relationship with options. I love the fact that I have so many choices, but I hate the fact that I have so many choices. The end result is that I want them all, and my OCD issues related to shopping take center stage. ***My shopping issues deserve a blog post of their own, along with a couple hours on a therapist’s couch*** Fortunately my cooler & rational head prevailed during my most recent shopping trip, and I walked away with only a handful of products. My purchases are outlined in the picture above. 

I have been having a blast over the past few weeks experimenting with all my new lipsticks, along with mixing & matching day and evening looks. Who says deep tones are reserved for a night on the town? Well I give an entire side-eye to that girl! I told you that 30 has me out here feeling my entire self, and that includes wearing whatever the hell I want, whenever the hell I want. I Shreen Shuffle to the beat of my own drum, and I must admit that my shimmy is an entire problem! You all should try it sometimes, it is so liberating, I promise. 

Quick Tip-The Fall/Winter months can be harsh on your skin, specifically your lips. Counter the cold weather with constant exfoliation and hydration.  Finally get the most out of any lip color by dabbing a bit of flesh tone concealer on your lips. This provides a neutral canvas for your lip color, and gives you the most pigmented result.
