Remember when I finally got my hands on some Poppy King for J.Crew lipstick and the day I shared it with you all it went out of stock?
(The great thing is this lipstick is layer able. The more layers, the deeper the color. This was only one swipe.)
Yeah, I was pretty disappointed too.
Rumors are flying that it’s coming back, but also that it’s over forever, so I’m going to give up on them re-releasing it for now.
In the meantime, however, walk yourself right into J.Crew and pick up some of this Chili Flake lipstick by Face Stockholm for J.Crew. It’s almost identical, except it’s a little bit more orange.
It’s the perfect bright orange-y red to pump up a neutral outfit.
And now I’m going to share with you the makings of a lipstick post.
I take 99.9% of my photos with my tripod, a wireless shutter release, and attempts at the best lighting possible. And a lot of luck that I’m standing in the frame.
But let me tell you—there are a lot, a LOT, of really great (read: awkward) photos that are snapped during my photo-taking.
My attempt at capturing this lipstick left me with a multitude of awkward photos to choose from, so I thought I would share so we can laugh together.
These have either a made up caption, or absolutely what I’m thinking during these shots.
“Maybe if I look off into the distance. . .they’ll take my lipstick seriously. “
“I’m over this. Plus? My eyes are expressionless 100% of the time.”
“Let’s pretend that Grits is doing something cute in the corner.”
“Maybe if I laugh at something hilarious in the window I’ll look like one of America’s Next Top Models!”
“Focused on the wrong thing.”
“Cropped. Dang it”.
There you have it.
What really happens during the making of a lipstick post.
