One of our favorite glossbabes (dare I say glossqueen) provides some simple, yet timeless advice for all of us:

“If I had to teach someone just one thing about lip color it would be this: Find a lipstick that looks good on your face when you are wearing absolutely no makeup.” – Bobbi Brown

Bobbi also offers suggestions as to how to find that perfect shade:

“The most flattering lip tones will be one or two shades darker than your natural lip color. To test shades, apply lipstick or gloss to one lip. If that color is just a shade or two deeper than your bare lip, then you’ve found your shade.”

So get out there and find that one stick, gloss, balm, or butter that you can always count on! You won’t regret it, and you’ll know it when you find it!

As I wore this gloss for a couple of days, I was a little torn about it. I liked the color, I liked the light, cookie-like fragrance (that dissipates quickly which I also like) and the fact that there was no discernible taste. But I was so torn about what I didn’t like, decided to give it an extra day, because I really wanted to try to get over what I was struggling with. Now, I’ve written before how I like a gloss that really sticks to your lips. Really has a smack factor to it. But this one was too heavy even for me. It felt ok going on, it lasted through my coffee, but all through the day I had an overwhelming desire to … keep on reading...
