|WHICH ONE DO I CHOOSE???|
One of life's most difficult beauty issues is trying to be confident in colors you choose while in store. There are so many options out there and so many elements to consider.
- lipstick, lip liner, or lip gloss?
- what kind of finish do you want?
- how many products are you willing to use at a time?
- what color goes best with my skintone?
- will this product last?
- will it dry out my lips?
The next time you are at the makeup store or counter and you swatch a lipstick, step outside of the store. Even if you are at a mall, when you step outside of the makeup store with all those bright fluorescent lights, you will get a truer look at what color you are choosing. Something that looks like a pinky-mauve can suddenly look plum in daylight.
Also, take your time. It's perfectly okay to swatch several colors and continue shopping around, whether it be in-store or elsewhere, before making your final choice. When I feel really uncertain, I take pictures of the swatch on my hand, the product itself, and the price, so that I can look at it again later. If I still feel that same excitement I felt the first time I saw the color, that is when I know that I've found the right one. . . such as this GORGEOUS lip crayon I bought today by Nars called Luxembourg. SO GORGEOUS!
