Happy National Lipstick Day 2016! In honor of lipstick everywhere, I thought it would be fun to share my favorite lipsticks of the moment, as well as one fun fact about lipstick!
Fun fact: “Egyptians like Cleopatra crushed bugs to create a colour of red on their lips.” (Source Google via Wikipedia)
Can you imagine wearing crushed bugs on your lips? I can’t. Ew! It is incredible to learn what women did for fashion in ancient times. Who knows, maybe someday future humans will look at our high heels as some sort of weird torture device. Ha! But I digress. . .
Fall 2016 is all about red nail polish, and red lipstick. I am not a big red lipstick person, or red nail polish fan, so I will be skipping this trend in favor of my tried and true pink or brown lipstick hues. For the end of summer, and early fall, the lipsticks pictured above will be my go-to shades.
I definitely reach for Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Rosa the most, with Chanel Melancholie being my next go-to lipstick. Chanel Mighty, and Energy, were my go-to lipsticks earlier in the spring season, but they have both gone missing! I suspect my daughter has snatched them up; she is famous for stealing my nail polishes. I need to watch her more closely. .
Last week, I bought MAC Fabby, and Charlotte Tilbury Kidman’s Kiss for transitioning into the fall season. Watch for upcoming reviews of these two lipsticks. I’m really excited about these two colors, and the formulas are fabulous!
What are your favorite lipsticks? Happy National Lipstick Day 2016!
