I have been slacking ladies, apologies.
I have so many posts in the pipeline, but have near- zero energy left at the end of the day to actually check up on the blog, reply to comments, or even put up the occasional “hello- post”.
I have had this post- idea for a while now, but have been putting it off because I will have to click and edit over a dozen pictures. But I’m in a ladies- lounge post sort of mood right now 🙂
I’m away from home, and therefore have no access to my lipstick stash. I shall therefore post pictures from the respective websites (lazy shortcut I know!). But trust me ladies, these are all fail- proof everyday lippies that you can slap-on on any given, busy day without a care or bother of how they might turn out.
They are all intensely researched, tried and tested under varied (read “extreme”) conditions and temperatures, and will never appear “made- up” or “doll-ey”
Here’s presenting my top selection for the everyday- chic, work apropriate lip products.
And yes, almost all belong to the same (or similar) color family of “pinky- browns” (with a hint of peach possibly). It is a personal preference and one that me thinks (humbly of course) looks great on us yellow/ olive toned ladies. It is also very muted, and hence appropriate even in the most conservative (read “male- dominated”) of work settings.
To the brights- loving, adventurous ladies or those working in more colorful, creative environs, the following list might appear a tad boring. You ladies may find my “party-lippie-list” (in the works) more appealing!
I promise I shall do swatches and reviews someday 🙂
- Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE VOLUPTÉ – Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15 – ULTIMATE BEIGE (3)
- TOM FORD Lip Color, Indian Rose
- Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Intense Nude
- MAC Satin Lipstick TWIG
- MAC Amplified Crème Lipstick COSMO
- YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick Rose Stiletto 9
- BURBERRY LIP DEFINER – DUSTY ROSE NO.02
- MAC Lip Pencil SOAR
- MAC Lip Pencil Spice
The last two are discontinued I think, as I can’t find them on the Revlon website. But if you can get hold of the Revlon ColorBurst lipcolors in Soft Rose and Rosy Nude do pick them up, they surely are a bang for your buck!
There you go ladies, the next time you are at a lipstick counter, and are looking for an everyday lipstick, or if your are a lippie- newbie and are not too adventurous, these would be great, safe- choices for work- wear.
And yes, they can be rocked by anyone, but are particularly suited to the lovely, tan folks here.
Till next time.
