I know why lipstick sales soar when the economy tanks.
When money is tight, it's not feasible to invest in new clothing and shoes, but one can justify splurging for a new tube of lipstick. The current trend, which calls for bright red, pink, and coral lips is fun, fresh, and sexy. It's a cheap and easy way to channel your inner Marilyn, brighten your mood, and put a spring in your step-- a perfect antidote to a worn and tired wardrobe.
So, in good conscience, I took to the make-up aisles to find some new lipstick this year. I must admit I was nervous about my application skills, but I really wanted to rock this new look, and I found there are thousands of products out there. No matter what your application or other issues may be, you can find the perfect tube of lipstick if you do a bit of digging.
I've fallen for the Fresh Sugar line, which is full of easy to apply colors that are both hydrating and creamy. The consistency is forgiving; it glides right over lips that are rough and parched thanks to winter's harsh temperatures. It doesn't bleed, and it is possible to apply in the car: no need for treating and priming lips beforehand. Try the Coral. It'll leave your mouth watering for summer.
