Lipstick : my beauty secret

next
the lovely aroma
 
 
A lot of women have that “final accessory” they put on to pull an entire look together. For some, it’s a statement ring, or a scarf. For me? It’s lipstick. 

I have experimented more with lipstick in the last year than in my entire life. For a long time I felt limited by my blonde hair and pale skin. But I’ve found that lipstick is essential for warming up my face and completing my look. 

It can also dramatically change a look from casual to a little more dressed up.

For example, if I’m wearing jeans, a white t-shirt, and clear lip balm, it falls in the more casual category. But all I need to do is add a bold lip color, a floral scarf and wedges, and it dresses my look up immediately.

So my beauty secret to pull my looks together? Lipstick. 

And what is better than just lipstick? Long-wear lipstick.
 
 
I’ve tried long-wear lipsticks in the past and put them to the ultimate test. I would apply in the morning, head to the salon for a full day of working behind the chair, which involves talking, eating a quick lunch, and more talking. 

Only a few hours into wearing a long-wear lipstick, I’d be left with flakey color that was cracked and dry. 

It was the worst! I practically needed a lip exfoliator to get it off too.

I recently had the opportunity to try a few shades of Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede lipstick. They sent me two colors I never would have chosen in the store and one that I actually already owned!

And so, the testing began. I wanted to see how these wore.

After about 4-6 hours of wear, I noticed that while my lips felt slightly dryer, I wasn’t left with flakiness. The color was still nearly as intense as when I first applied it, but a bit of the shine was gone. None had transferred to my lunch as I ate it either, and that was appealing in and of itself. 

After lunch, instead of layering on another swipe of the same lipstick, I opted for a coordinating gloss just to kick up the shine and moisture.

And that refreshed it and gave me a few more hours of wear.

Overall, I was really impressed by the wearability and longevity of these lipsticks. And I found that I enjoyed wearing “Backstage” more than I originally thought! It’s a deep plum/mauve color, and perfect for a high-impact lip!

I am so glad you reviewed this lipstick! I have bought a few of them and loved it but I have such a hard time finding a color that works for me (I have warm undertones in my skin) but LOVED this lipstick so much just because it can be worn and then I can put my favorite lip balm over it later without having to put more lipstick on.

Love your blog!

My beauty secret is…earrings! If an outfit is more plain, but the earrings are interesting or dressed up, your outfit is SET. Not to mention that earrings are typically on the lower end of pricing ($) as compared to bracelets/necklaces.

I recently discovered that Revlon suede lipstick also and was given several colors to try as well πŸ™‚ It’s extremely versatile in that you can wear it either matte or glossy with a little foundation on your lips first OR a little burt’s bees. One way comes out matte the other a lovely, balmy shade that also has the added benefit of making your lips look fuller!

Because of you, Kate, my beauty statement has also become lipstick. I used to rarely wear it with the same reasoning as you – my fair skin. I had one go-to color and thought it was the only one I could wear. Thankfully you’ve opened the door to many more shades for me. Thanks so much for your inspiration! I can’t wait to try this Revlon line!

My beauty secret is mascara! I’m fortunately blessed with long, full lashes but even when I’m not wearing any other makeup, I think a light coat of natural looking mascara for extra definition just makes your eyes pop and makes you look infinitely more pulled together.

I’m curious to try these long-wearing Revlon lipsticks. I’ve LOVED every other lip product I’ve tried from Revlon–they’re one of my favorite brands.

My beauty secret is to simply be comfortable wherever you are applying your makeup. I have found that if I am sitting on the floor or sitting in a chair in front of the mirror where I am comfortable, I apply my makeup much more carefully and can relax than if I am standing in front of my bathroom sink, leaning in towards the mirror to make sure my eyeliner is perfect. When sitting, you can relax and be more patient with your makeup which creates a much better outcome!

my beauty secret is mascara and lipstick. I find that even if i don’t have much time, with a swipe of mascara, dust of powder, and lipstick in a bold color, i immediately have that retro glam look, which has slowly become my staple! [email protected]

I too tried this lipstick, in the backstage color (that is what they showed on the commercial as being a deep mauve color) and it was NOT great. It actually looked like a pink/berry shade on me and wasn’t dark at all- and it was gone after 2 drinks, leaving my lips dry and flaky. I was so bummed and quite disappointed with this product. So in an effort to save the $8 spent on failed lipstick, I decided to try it as a cream blush and have found that it’s fantastic! It stays on all day, and is blend-able and has such a great color, unlike many cream blush shades out there. So, overall- I guess I salvaged it a little! =)

My beauty secret is using a couple of powders for a subtle contouring. I place a slightly darker shade on the places where shadows would be and then a lighter shade in the remaining areas. Lastly, I hit my cheeks with a rosy blush. It takes 2 minutes and makes a huge difference.

I never leave the house without mascara…ever…even at the gym. It makes me look more awake than anything else. Earrings are a close second. They help take a casual look a bit farther.

Midwest winters can be harsh and the winds can be so drying. I am in my early 40s and found the best defense against dry skin in the winter is baby oil! I put it on after my shower and before drying and it helps my skin stay soft all day! I like the scent too!

I have one shade of this lipstick already and liked it but I am a little scared of lipstick and didn’t know which shade to try next. I saw how pretty “preview” looked on you in the picture and went out and bought it on my lunch break. I cant wait to try it! I also picked up “women’s wear” which is a little lighter. Swatched on my hand it looks nearly identical to preview, but these lipsticks tend to look different on the lip than the hand, so we shall see.

I really miss using Revlon products (and Covergirl, L’Oreal, etc.), but I stopped using them recently because they changed their policies about testing on animals. I just cannot bear to use products that have been force fed to animals and smeared into their eyes. Reluctantly, I switched to Physician’s Formula products and love them.

Amazingly enough, lipstick is also my new beauty secret. It is amazing because up until a few years ago, I was the girl that NEVER wore lipstick. I couldn’t be bothered to reapply so I figured why put it on in the first place. Since I discovered long lasting lipsticks, I have tried several varieties. My current favorite is Benefits Liquid Benetint but I am always on the lookout for more fabulous lips. [email protected]

I am going to start by saying that I follow your blog for about a year, I have “successfully” recreated some of your hair tutorials with my hair and each and every time received compliments and directed everyone that was amazed when they heard I did my updo to your site. While there are other hair tutorial sites out there I believe yours is the best and easiest to follow.
At the end of last year you wrote that you will change your gear a bit and will get back to more tutorials and I was really looking forward to it, but am a bit disappointed that I feel that while there are indeed less giveaways on your blog, there are “paid” advertisements for different products. The web is soo full of ads nowadays and when I subscribe to a blog, I subscribe to it because I learn something from it. Now I know and understand that you couldn’t possibly post a hairdo every day, but I also enjoy your outfits, your makeup tutorials, and also your occasional rants about life or posts on your cat. I get the fact that bloggers spend a fair amount of their time working on their blog and it is only fair they get paid some compensation from it and I do not mind occasional product reviews that are in fact paid advertisements but it is only fair to the readers to indicate in the title or somewhere visible before the end of the post, that it is a paid advertisement. This way you give readers the option to read it or to skip it, which in the end shows that you respect their time.
I still love your blog and look forward to your posts every day and will continue to direct people to it, I just hope you stay true to the initial mission of the blog

Mascara is essential, whether it is the only thing you have on or a compliment to the rest of your makeup. Always use black (unless you’re doing soe color and then I would still say try to layer over the black). I use two, one coat of the Sephora brand atomic volume then covergirl lashblast. It is amazing what mascara can do for your eyes.

Eyeliner. I never leave home without it. I am so pale and have blue eyes, so eyeliner gives me a little color and makes my eyes pop.

In the winter months, and any time the nighttime lows dip below freezing, I sleep with my humidifier running. This keeps my forehead from developing a nasty read dry patch that no lotions or oils seem to cure!

But most people do not appreciate the use of braces because of two major reasons.
The LA Cosmetic Dentist should also have an eye for aesthetics and what is
normal in order to give the patient satisfying results.
During the recovery period, you may notice some bruising
and redness, as well as minor swelling, all of which can be improved through regular use of the special stockings.
