It doesn’t matter if we are in a BAD economy or GREAT economy, something every woman can afford is lipstick. Â In fact, sales of lipstick go up when the economy is in the tank. Â Why? Not only is it affordable but lipstick makes you feel great, look sexy and perks up the blues. New colors, brands and promises come out every year. Â Celebrities hawk it like crazy and the race to have the best “plumper” is always being run. Â By the way, I love plumpers but I still haven’t found one that last ALL day long. Â I know … get a real problem.
Did you know that there is new lipstick/gloss lingo? Â No! Well, get with it and brush up so you can stay “in the know”.
Gel: thick and sticky, look for types without wax
Mist: One swipe, 3 hour lipstick
Shine: equal parts high-shine gloss and cream. Goes on light
Candy: pop of pigment in a balm
I’m not a pro but Lilly Stone at Sooo Lilly is and you can never go wrong heading over to Sooo Lilly in NW OKC, Balliets to snatch up some Trish McEvoy or while in Norman, Cayman’s is partial to Laura Mercier. Â All have great lines and plenty to choose from – plus, you can’t beat the personal service. Â Here is my method to get my entire face made over … go in to look at lipstick, slightly whine about another issue on your face and PRESTO! my entire face comes out looking flawless. Â Yes, I end up picking up a few extra items, but it’s like being at a small beauty salon where everyone pops in the get “beautified” (think Steel Magnolia’s). Â This technique is why I started using black eyeliner. Â I was always told that it was TOO HARSH but in reality it makes blue eyes pop (thanks Lilly) and I also learned to outline my upper lip in flesh tone before lining with color in order to “extend” my upper lip slightly instead of using color to do so. Â Thanks Balliets!
