Bright Lips...

Blogger just deleted my whole post!!!! Waaaaaahhhhhhhh....

Ok, i'm starting AGAIN.... went to Ulta on lunch yesterday with C to browse. I had my hefty $3.50 off coupon that i *had* to use... and after seeing some of these pretty lips on Pinterest, i decided to jump on the proverbial bandwagon and try a couple out.

Here's the first color i picked...
Hot Coral... doesn't the name say it all? It was nice and warm, maybe a bit too warm for winter, but definitely a nice shade and definitely has some pop to it! Here's how it looked (sitting in my office. excuse the rest of my fug face)

The second color was a bit more daring... i was channeling my inner Nicki Minaj...

I think i can pull this off with the right outfit and dark club lighting... its definitely bright, though, i think the picture makes it look stronger than it does in real life. i'll probably be wearing it out this weekend for C's birthday, so hopefully i can get some better pics (on a real camera)...

What's your take on the bright lipstick trend? Would you try it?

In other news, HAPPY {almost} TURKEY DAY!


  1. I have that same coupon that "must" be used. I love bright colors and have been trying to wear them more often. The hot coral is lovely on you as is the raspberry beret. I'm working on liking red lips myself!

  2. I think you ROCK both colors!!!

    Ever since Halloween I've been in love with a good red lips. :)

    Anyways, have a wonderful Thanksgiving my sista from anotha mista!

  3. I hate deleting posts!
    Love your blog. I wish I had an Ulta or Saphora in my town, all I have is Target.
    Not sure how I feel about the bright makup but I am a HUGE fan of pinks. <3 Pink!!
