One of my favorite makeup artist Bobbi Brown started her beauty empire with just 10 Lipsticks. All derived from natural pink and brown tones in women’s lips. She was ahead of her time with that idea. She thought she’s sell 100 in the first month but she sold that the first day.
Personally I love a simple but classic nude lip. But a real nude lip. Not the one where you look like you’ve been eating powered donuts all day.
One of the first rules of having the perfect nude lip or bold lip is the right lip liner. I’ve used Mac, Makeup Forever, Sephora, Lipstick Queen and Bare Minerals to name a few. They are all ok but, they are nothing compared to the pigmented creaminess of NYX. I love them so much that I’ll probably never use another brand of lip liner again unless I need to color match a unique shade. Yet, even then I would check NYX first. And to top it all off they are only $3.49 and can be purchased online at nyx or in-store at Ulta, CVS, Walgreens and Duane Reade.
