Since today is National Lipstick Day, I thought I would share a new bright favorite by Stila. Summer is the time of year that I like to have fun with some bright colors, including bright lipstick. As a rule, I either wear a bright accessory or outfit OR a bright lip, not at the same time. You want to be careful not to overwhelm yourself with shocking colors.
I actually received this sample in my latest Birchbox and couldn't wait to try it out. I wore it to work with an all black outfit and some lighter eye makeup. While it photographs more on the red side it is actually a neon red/pink. This color is universally flattering on fair skin or tan/dark skin! It is a bit drying so I always exfoliate my lips before I put it on and then put a dab of rosebud salve on top to keep it moist.
