Lipstick Jungle

I think I am going to finally bite the bullet and act off some of my mother's advice, 
"Taylor, you need to wear some color on your lips."

I hate make-up.  It feels like a mask and it's one extra thing I have to put on in the morning.  I'd rather go au natural on a daily basis, but I'm afraid the black rings around my eyes would be frightening to passerbys. Looking at recent pictures, I have to agree that I need something
 on the lips to wake me up a little.

While I'm not ready to jump into painted red lips, I am ready to add some sort of blush to these smackers. Who knows?! Maybe I'll dive into more color once I get used to a brighter look. 

What are some of your favorite tubes that have a touch of color? 
Goodness knows I need your advice on this one.

What colors will you be wearing for fall?
I look forward to taking your suggestions to the make-up counter this weekend.


  1. I have never really been a lipstick fan, but I think this post just inspired me to give it a try! What's your favorite brand?

    I am SO glad to have found fellow GA peach & teacher's blog! I nominated you for the Liebster Award :) Be sure to check it out!

    PS. I'm wearing my earrings for a 2nd time today :)

  2. I'm glad you like the earrings and are having fun wearing them! Thanks so much for the Liebster Award!! I'm honored!

  3. I just found your blog from the It List, hence the 2 mos. late comment. :) I like Clinique - you can try before you buy, which is crucial. Their Different Lipstick is typically more see-through- a light, but pretty option. They also have Almost Lipstick, which is another good option. I haven't tried their chubby sticks yet, they might also fit the bill. And they have plenty of shades that are 'gentle' - won't be a drastic transition for you. :) Have fun!
