My husband loves that I love beauty and everything that comes with it. You know...hair, makeup, nails. He encourages me to try new things and never gripes about my bazillion beauty boxes. Well, that's not entirely true. He is giving me "the look" because I have way too much stuff. I guess he has a point when I have to pile stuff on his side of the bed. Ok, I get the hint. I'm joining BBA in the new year... promise!
So, the lovely thing about my husband, Jamie is that he has pushed me to try some new things that I swore in a million years I would NEVER do. Two, really major things to me. First, red lipstick. We all know that red lipstick is a scary place a lot of us don't want to go. It's so bold, maybe it sends the wrong message? But, you know what? I tried it and I fell in love! Granted, not all red is equal but trying them out is fun! I will do a post in the future about my various reds and why I think they work or don't work.
The other thing that he made me take the leap of faith on is dying my hair black. I really hated to admit it to him...but I *love* my hair black! Going black is not an easy thing to do! I always found myself somewhat conservative...the older I get the less conservative I get? lol
(the lipstick in the picture is Quo's lip crayon in crimson)
So, anyways, once in a blue moon he'll pick me up a lipstick colour or nail polish
he thinks that I would like. that he likes and wants to see me try. He hooked me on the Maybelline COLORsensational lipsticks. I have 3 of them and he picked them all out for me. The colour payoff is amazing and flattering. It's moisturising and long lasting! I didn't want to have anything to do with lipsticks until these. This is what the containers look like.
This particular colour he picked up at SDM. It is a gorgeous coral colour in Coral Crush. I'd NEVER think I would wear a coral, but was I ever wrong! This colour is gorgeous, it's perfect for everyday. It's flattering and striking without being over the top. When you look at it it's intimidating though, right?
Well girls, when your husband buys you a colour you at least have to try it. This colour makes me feel sexy and confident. It's one that I have to stock up on because it's just that good! Here is the swatch. You can see how moisturising it is!
Of course, since he went to SDM, Angie took care of
I'm sorry I don't have a swatch of it on my lips, but I will get one up at some point! I will do swatches of the 3 colours I have.
Hope you're having a great week!
