About 2 years ago I never wore lipstick. I just didn’t like it and felt that everyone was watching me if I wore something on my lips. In the mean time, I’m never leaving the house without any lipstick so you can definitely change haha! But back to my point, I can imagine that there are more girls out there who don’t like wearing lipstick or maybe are afraid of wearing one because other people’s opinions. That’s why I’m writing this Tuesdays Tips!
There’s a chance that you’re afraid to wear make-up or in particular wearing lipstick. I know this can be a struggle for people because I was scared myself too. When I first started wearing lipstick, I wore a pretty nude color: Koko K by Kylie Cosmetics. It made me feel really confident about myself and that’s when I started wearing more lipstick. First I wore really nude colors, like you couldn’t even tell I had something on my lips. Now, two years later, I’m still not wearing the most bright colors ever but I’m not scared to wear whatever I want. Lately, I’ve discovered Colourpop’s Ultra Blotted Lip. I wish I had one when I started wearing more lipsticks but I’m still glad I’ve discovered them.
The thing is that these lipsticks make your lips ‘your lips but better.’ It gives a soft, diffused look and dries matte so it actually looks like you don’t wear any lipstick at all! I have some swatches for you:
Top one is Zuma and bottom one is Slide. Zuma is a warm nude and Slide is a cool-toned pink. Both really pretty colors! You can see that they’re not full coverage but more like a sheer coverage. This is how their supposed to be so if you like a good pigmented full coverage lipstick, this isn’t a thing for you.
These lipsticks are $6 each and I’m sure this is a good lipstick to start with or to feel more confident wearing a lipstick! At the moment, Colourpop has only 10 colors. I do think you can find a good color for you between these but I really hope that Colourpop will extend them with more colors! Even though I like wearing lipsticks more now, I love wearing the Ultra Blotted Lips. You should definitely try them out!
