Spring Lips

Crappy pictures since using my Mac Photobooth. The best representation of the color of the lipsticks are shown ahead.

Revlon's Colorburst in Soft Nude.

Just bought Revlons colorstay lipstick in Peach. Sale at Target B1G1 (pre-packed) free plus %10 off.

Revlon's Colorburst in Peach.

Also Nivea's A Kiss of Flavor in Hint of Cherry. It's got a very light cherry flavor which is also very lightly sweet. It isn't that moisturizing and the more you pack on, the stronger the color gets which defeats the purpose of the "hint" part of the chapstick. It doesn't feel heavy on the lips like smackers. It's harder than that. The color is a bit stronger than shown in this picture.

freebies of the week

So I tried out "Soft Nude" by Revlon and I think I like. It's sort of peachy, but definitely more on the nude side. It's nice since its moisturizing and smooth on the lips, without overdrying. Soft nude is more soft pinky peach while "Smooth Nude" from Revlons colorstay soft and smooth collection is a creamy, yellow based nude that comes out beigeish with a VERY slight purple iridescent undertone. "Nude Attitude" from Revlons Matte collection is a creamy, peach nude,  that comes out like concealer on my lips, with a VERY slight pink iridescent undertone. Oh dear, I am sooo bad at describing shades.

A lipstick I want to try out is Rimmel's "Nude Delight" for their moisture collection. They don't carry it where I live. I heard "Spotlight Beige" is very close in color but I checked it out and it's darker than I want. It's more of a dark nude which I have too many of. They're not that flattering on me. Moving on.

I'm all about simplicity. Especially when it comes to cosmetics. I detest having to carry a lipstick that bleeds on the lips, leading me to carry a lipliner and then a gloss since the darn stick doesn't shine. Even more now because I don't carry a purse around. I hate having to carry crap and to have to worry about a bag. When I used to carry a bag, I DEPENDED on it on it so I'd just start stuffing it with things I didn't need like socks and nailpolishes in like 5 colors. Yea like I was going to paint my toes, while driving, on the way to work out. It'd get so big that Mary Poppins would be ashamed. Clothing with pockets is a must, or I resort to sticking stuff into my boots or bra.

I'm always on the go and since I don't carry a mirror, I check my reflection to see if anything's out of place. This is why I say that the PERFECT lip-stain/stick/gloss/tint is a MUST.

The lipstick I used to ALWAYS carry around was "B-list" (creamy, matte, peachy nude) by Lancome until it got discontinued, then I went through 3 tubes of "Almost Nude" (creamy, matte, dark peachy nude) by Revlon which is also discontinued. Now, I think this is the culprit for my under lip acne so here I am, trying to find a lipstick for myself.

So if someone can find me a perfect peachy lipstick that isn't too dark for my VERY luminating light skin, please let me know. Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
