My new favorite thing

Problems with lipstick and lip glosses (which is why I usually stick to chapstick)

1. I grew up thinking that lipstick was for old people and only lip gloss was acceptable for us young girls. So not true!!!
2. I always envisioned lipstick as being very, very dry...having seen it on a bunch of old people, looking dry.
3. Despite my prejudice about lipstick, I HATED lip gloss, with a passion. It is sticky, and it smells so bad. And as my mother says if you put too much on it looks like you stuck your face in olive oil.

My solution?

Maybelline: Color Sensation Lipcolor
Under $10
Very Creamy
Huge selection of colors (My favorite is Pink Peony. I can't remember my second favorite color's name.)

So after agonizing over spending money on something that I "wanted" instead of "needed" I decided, what the hell, I might as well. I deserve to feel like I look good, right? (Even though I am broke and owe thousands to my mother for college and grad schools.) And lipstick was all I needed :) I'll get into my quest for physical perfection later. And I ended up with two for the same price that I would have gotten 1 at Clinique!!!

So, opinions...what is your favorite lipstick/ lip gloss?

Oh I'm so glad you posted about this... I have the same love/hate relationship with lipstick and lipgloss and almost always use chapstick instead. Will def give this a try!

I love the Mabelline lipstick! Another trick that I use so my lipstick looks extra shiny is putting a clear chapstick on before the lipstick. :) Thanks for your comment!!!
