Top 3 Lipsticks Every R.G. Needs in Her Arsenal

2 Aug

I’ll admit, I really do not wear lipstick often. Maybe it’s because I speak a lot and I have some irrational fear that it will get on my teeth. But even though it might not be a constant, I have a lipstick for every occasion and style. If you are still building your cosmetic wardrobe or simply just love make-up, take a look at my three have-to-have-them lipsticks:

The Perfect Red

This is the hardest lipstick to find. “This red has too much blue” and “this one has orange undertones” are excerpts of conversation that are all too familiar to any daunted shopper on the hunt for her red. Here’s the thing, your best friend’s red is not going to be your red. Also, she might swear by Lancome but Cover Girl might suit you just fine. Either way, try a few at a Sephora or a department store and then look at yourself in natural daylight. By the way, Chanel “Gabrielle”is my red and rumor has it that it’s many others as well.

A Semi-Frosty Pink

I’m not talking old lady frosty pink but something pretty for when you look tan or girly. The trick is to go with something without silver sparkle in it. That’s a deal breaker. Warmer tones are always more flattering and goof-proof. I think I have six tubes of Politely Pink from M.A.C. lying in different handbags.

A Go With Everything Nude

Nude lipsticks are like a good push-up bra; they make you look more…ahem…pronounced, all while playing a supportive role. You should think of nudes this way.  They compliment a smokey eye just perfectly but can also be mixed with any other lipstick or gloss. NARS Belle De Jour has enough color so you don’t look washed out.

Gaga for March Marie Claire!

3 Feb

No, Lady Gaga is not the cover girl of Marie Claire this month (what a sight that would be) but she does have a cute little feature in this month’s issue. As the new face of M.A.C. Viva Glam alongside another eccentric performer by the name of Cyndi Lauper, Gaga is certainly going to be giving a lot of lip about the new color she created for them, Viva Glam Gaga.  You should certainly keep magazines alive and actually buy the magazine (this issue is exceptionally good for a magazine that I admittedly do not read very often) but here are a few highlights:

The book that Gaga is currently reading? The Bible.

She likes Sexiest Fantasies Strawberries and Champagne body spray and it’s only $6.99.

The new lipstick is based on another MAC lipstick shade, Pink Nouveau, which Gaga used to tweak to make her own.

She loves Wrigley’s Doublemint gum.
