I adore makeup, especially lipstick. Depending on the color, it can make me feel pretty, sweet, bright, mysterious, edgy, or sometimes I just want to feel moisturized.
My tastes range from Bonne Bell’s Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker (soon to be discontinued in the U.S. for some unexplainable reason) to Chanel’s Rouge Coco.
I’ve worn Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker every day alone or under lipstick since I was a tween. It’s my go-to lip balm. I recently bought a 4-pack before they disappear forever.
My new favorite lipstick is Charlotte Tilbury’s Bond Girl. How do you not try a lipstick called Bond Girl? It makes me feel adventurous.
Your #DolceVita action item for the week: Wear Lipstick.
Choose something out of your comfort zone.
For some of you that may mean a tinted lip balm. For others that may mean a blue lip gloss. Be brave.
Me? I’ll be trying Charlotte Tilbury’s Penelope Pink. A nude shade is definitely out of my comfort zone. My lips are naturally very pale, so a nude lip means I have to go strong on the eye makeup. Look out, world. Where’s my red carpet?
Do you want to feel sexy? Do you want to feel powerful? Do you want to feel like a teenager? Or a Bond Girl? I guarantee it will change your confidence level. There is nothing wrong with getting your girl on.
Let me know what you choose. Use hashtag #DolceVita so I’m sure to see it.
This is a difficult #DolceVita action for me. I always wear mascara, and rarely wear lipstick. Even tinted lip gloss. Whatever I put on my lips usually ends up in my mouth within a few minutes.
Just do it. See how it makes you feel 🙂
What a great challenge! I don’t wear lipstick around the house, but I try to remember to slap on some vampire red when I go out. My newest “dare” for myself is to grab a tube of Bellatrix in LA Splash’s new Harry Potter collection; it’s dark purple.
I just looked that up. I love it!
I usually wear no make up but I agree lips set the look. Plus, I love the added benefit of moisture. I will have to try something a little daring.
I love lipstick but wish it would stay on! The long lasting ones dry out my lips like crazy. 🙁 any suggestions?
Reapply Reapply Reapply. That’s what I do. Coco Chanel made it fashionable in the 1920s for a woman to pull out her compact and reapply her lipstick. It looks tres chic.
