National Lipstick Day!

Hey Cuties,

Today is National Lipstick Day also known as MimiCuteLips Day. Duh! I wanted share some of my favorite lipsticks and show you some of my new loves. I purchased new lippies while in Miami and more recently in New York. I just might have a new favorite. Eeeek!

I will be honest, I wasn’t always into lipsticks. I only became addicted within the last year or two. I was a freshman in High School the first time I really got to wear lipstick. I had no idea what shade to get or how it would look. Chanel Rouge Allure No 8 is a limited edition lipstick in the ultimate red shade and I personally think it really suited me. I wore it all the time. I also got the same color my older sister wore, Revlon, Toast of New York. The color wasn’t bad but the tragic dark lip liner I used with it was. Over the years I turned to lip gloss but I’ve found my love for lipsticks again and oddly enough I’ve quit lip gloss.

I started out with Neutrals and then ventured into colors. I would suddenly fall in love with Ruby Woo and it would become my signature lip. This blog isn’t called MimiCuteLips for anything. I was born with full lips; you know the kind folks pay big money for.

Growing up I hated them and kids teased me all the time. As I got older I learned to embrace them and branded the hell out of them. Ha, look at me now.

MAC Heroine II National Lipstick Day

This is the first time I’ve rocked this color and it might be my new favorite. Don’t tell Ruby Woo.

My cousins and I attended a wedding over the weekend. I’m rocking my signature red lip, I use a dark lip liner to give it the ombre look. My Cousin in the middle is wearing MAC Amp. My other cousin on the end is wearing MAC Honey Love. Our shoe game is strong!

MAC Honey Love National Lipstick Day

MAC Honey Love, This was the first nude I ever purchased.

I won’t go off about the million and two moles that I have thanks to my parents. Instead I will say that I’ve not worn this lipstick in years. I’m going to give it for a spin; I need to do better with layering it for coverage.

My naturals all look similar to one another, I know. My neutral/nude collection is solid now. I’m going to seek out some other colors. I do have a MAC Orange somewhere, but I don’t love it. I need to find it and see if I can make it work.

    I like how you used your lipstick and it looks good on you. I need to learn how to play around every day.

  20. tiarastantrums@gmail.com

    look at all the great colors you can wear. I am so pale – nothing looks good on me. I used to always just wear red lipstick, it was my color – then I had babies and it always smeared, so I don’t wear it anymore

  21. Uplifting Families

    So many wonderful shades if lipsticks to choose from. They all look pretty on you too. I’m like you I’m not a huge fan of lipstick. Maybe it’s because I don’t know whst shades are best suited for me. I usually wear a mauve color or just mauve lip liner with a shinny lip gloss over it.

  22. Rebecca Swenor

    These look like awesome lip sticks and amazing colors too. I love the ruby and I think it looks the best on you. You are one that can pull off all these shades. Thanks for sharing.

  23. Ourfamilyworld

    I love lipsticks, but I don’t know how to pair them. All the colors were good for you.

  24. Alli

    If I’m ever stranded on a deserted island, I’d better be clutching a lipstick or two in my hands. That’s the one makeup item I can’t do without. Love all your different looks! What a great collection!

    I wish I knew better about lipsticks. About the right shade for your skin tone and etc. You got a very nice collection, you totally know how to rock it!

  28. NIckida

    I don’t wear lipstick ever. I don’t even think I wore it on my wedding day. It’s just not my cup of tea but I love all your neutral colors only because if I did wear lipstick those are the ones I would choose. But you rock them all.
