What Do You Think?


About this lipstick? I tried a bunch on the back of my hand (I had a $40 Victoria's Secret card to use up, so it's not cheap lipstick.) and I decided on this, but I don't like it as much on my face as I liked it on my hand (I never like the lipsticks I pick out for myself, they never come out right). Anyway, I can't ask Jeremy, he doesn't know anything about lipstick, so I want my lady friends to tell me if the color is good or bad. And where would I wear this color (if I can actually wear this color out of the house)?

it's hard to tell because the overall light is blue, but i think it looks okay. (the pic made me laugh though. and i though, she's going to ask an opinion on the lipstick! before i even read the text) welcome back!

ROFL! You know me so well. And he light does alter the color a little bit, but it's a mighty dark/bright, pink, also a little purple-y. I just can't make myself like it, and I hate that I bought fancy lipstick that I don't like much.

Have you tried layering it with a glittery light pink gloss? I think that would look super cute on you! i love layering lipstick anyway because I never like any of the colors they have.

I'll have to try that, T, thanks for the idea.

Weird, I don't know why that posted twice.

Mary-O, it looks pretty good. You do need to get a handle on the lighting when you do your pic's. Do you use a digital camera or some other clever method?

Oh, you're new to the blog, so you don't know about my feelings about digital cameras. I'd hyperlink this if I knew how to, but go to this post:

I use my computer cam for the vast majority of the photos I post. I wonder if I shined a flashlight in my face when I take pictures if that would help? ;P

let me get this strait. you hade a "victorias secret" gift card and you used it to buy lip stick? did you get any thing else with the gift card? you could where the lip stick with whatever else you bought. just a thought, i cant realy see the color that well eighter.

Yes, I also bought stuff to make me smell good. They had bath and body products 6 for $20, and I couldn't resist the bargain. I got $90 worth of stuff for $40.
