Readers, I am getting more and more brave when it comes to lipstick. Having avoided a colored lip for years I am slowly started to open my mind to it. It can truly transform an outfit; the other night in NYC I threw on a black t-shirt and black leather mini skirt. It felt good but rather dull. I am not much of a jewelry person so I turned to my increasingly trusty and reliable new friend; my lipstick. A quick swipe of my orange/red Covergirl (yes ladies, Covergirl does some fantastic vibrant lipsticks!) and I felt complete. Avoid any orange/reds with shimmer, stick to matte and flat. Try it, you'll love it.
