Embracing my lip color

Here is my lipstick collection, I recently had a big sale on LJ and sold a lot of them but I took this before I sent them out, I'm trying to go for more color now and less nude since it just doesn't work for me.

I have gotten so sick of having to put myth under every single lipstick and gloss I put on. I have pretty pigmented lips and whenever I put on any kind of color it turns out to be darker and redder because of my natural lip color. Well I finally decided to stop fighting it and to start embracing my natural lip color. I have found that if I want a certain lip color I need to go a shade or two lighter to achieve the perfect color. One of my new favorites is Mac's Dazzleglass in Love Alert, its sheer enough that it doesn't make me look like a clown but has enough color to enhance my natural color. I also like Hollywood Nights but it is more of a dramatic night time lip.

Hollywood Nights:

Anyone know of any other good lip products for pigmented lips, I'm loving the dark pinks/corals right now:)


  1. have you got mac's girl about town? its just sooo amazing!

  2. If, like you said, you have pretty pigmented lips, I understand that nude lipstick doesn't work for you. But my problem is that no lipstick seems to look right on me, not even nude one! Argh -_-
