Brighten Up

IMG_4782I bought red lipstick and it changed my life.

It’s true.

I had relegated my lips to the nude department. No mirror needed. Nothing to see here. Just nude.

My lipstick timeline looked like this: for 10 years, I wore the ubiquitous Black Honey from Clinique. It was discontinued and I was lost. I never really picked up another lipstick I loved. Eventually, wanting some shimmer, I started wearing really pale shades of pink and nude, and then last Fall, someone gave me a sample of red lipstick from MAC and I put it on and felt transformed.

I became addicted to the boldness, the commitment to, red lipstick, so I went on a search to find the perfect red. I tried a lot of shades, and some people even sent me some, but eventually I settled on Beautycounter Red Color Intense Lipstick.

The average woman will consume 8 lbs of lipstick in her life. Beautycounter puts safer products into the hands of women everywhere, and as a brand-addict and consultant, I only wear Beautycounter on my lips now.

So, need a big change in a small package? Find your shade of bright lipstick, and you’ll find yourself with a different kind of pep in your step.
