I'm almost always in just a sunscreened clear lip balm myself. (guess I got tired of the, as my dad puts it, "warpaint" of former years)... today's was Burt's Bees. (funny, when I got hold of some BB's that had zinc oxide and didn't realize it til I looked in the mirror!)
Dark reds and berry colours are too dark for my skin and wash me out in photos.I’m a natural redhead with brown eyes, dark lashes and brows, pale skin and freckles. My lips tend to get washed out powered by my light freckles when I wear lighter pinkish lip colour.
Rimmel long wearing lipstick #906D (mauve) great staying power and you can't beat the price ($1.99) and loving the NYC lip gloss in Sheer Ruby, non sticky, the perfect red, I love these glosses and the price is great! ($1.99) Who does'nt love a good deal? )
Kat Von D Hellbent with a touch of Mac Nymphette...this is my new favorite red. Been searching for a while. Sephora has a good sampler of KVD lipsticks. I have found every single one to be a keeper. I'm stunned.
I'm wearing Rimmel's 'VINTAGE PINK' more of a mauve color, love it for fall and when your not quite ready for the REDS, looks great when wearing your black, grey and purple clothing. Oh yeah, I'm so ready for Fall. )
