You always wear...

I was eating lunch with my co-worker today, and after we ate we pulled out our mirrors to scan our lipstick situation. Everyone has their "specific" way of application, a routine they fall in to. I mentioned to my friend..."you always choose deep lipsticks with lots of pigment." She agreed, and her reasoning was she felt her skin was too pale and the lipstick evened her coloring out. As she applied her Estee Lauder tube, I began to pull our my nude trio and proceeded to perfect my look.

I have an assortment of lipsticks, but my colors seem to be in 4 categories: Nudes, vibrant to pale pinks, bold reds, and deep burgundy. 

My top brands: MAC, YSL, Smashbox

I also have: Dior, Lancome, and Bobbi Brown

"YSL" Lipstick in Pale Pinks and Vibrant Reds looks great on this gal, writer of Atlantic Pacific
"BOLD orange" comes to mind for Alicia writer of Cheetah is the New Black
When I think of Taylor, writer of Sterling Style I think "bright pink" lips.

What are your favorite colors and brands? Do your girlfriends relate a certain "color" to you?

I couldn't relate more with your post... I definitely go through phases with lipsticks. I've been wearing Maybelline "pearly pink" 720 almost every day since november... It's a very light pink,and a little frosty. (it's seen on christi turlington in all of the ads). I feel like it really brings out my dark brown eyes and blond hair, while brightening up my skintone. Also looks amazing with a white shirt.

I love these colors. Taylor's hot pink is great, I like the wear that shade every now and then. I've always had Nars Belle de Jour in my makeup case though. It's such a good nude staple.
