Lips Gone Wild - Hog Tied and Hot Pink
"Just Put On A Little Lipstick..."
These are the wise words that my Mom softly advises under her breath, but loud enough so I receive the advice - always delivered with good intentions. I Love You Mom:) This one's for you. My favorite thing to do is wear barely there nude colors on my lips, but things have been changing around here, so jumping out of the comfort zone is par for the course.
Sometimes going way outside of familiar territory brings me joyfully back to the place I long to be.
Here's to you Hot Pink!
Revlon Super Lustrous Wild Orchid(457) and Fuchsia Fusion(657)
*of course, you know I had to buy Both because they are different colors and there was a sale...
-Creamy, Rich, True to it's color.
-Doesn't leave a bad taste in your mouth when you lick your lips
tried to show you the shimmer/glitter saturation - it's fun
Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Gloss in Cupquake (Thx Sis!)
-Shimmery, A bit tacky (as in Sticky not tasteless), Smells like Cake, Tastes like Sugar
Under the Sunlight
I'm still amazed that this combination of pink is not as shocking as I had expected...
In person it's pretty bright, but the color seems to photograph beautifully!
I used all three colors with no liner.
Might As Well Include the OOTD
Metropolitan Top, Victoria's Secret Leggings, Bluefly.com Silver Necklace
What I wore to balance out the bright lip for Daytime was this fantabulous, dark, batwing tunic from Metropolitan. The open back drapes down with 2 simple strings that tie right at the shoulder blades. The lower mid-section gathers subtly across the hips and ties the ruching on the side; this seems to flatter the waistline and yet still cover enough of the badookadunk (dangit! One of you lovely bloggers got that term in my head and now I cannot stop using it today) to be tasteful. Interestingly enough, the dramatic top almost seems understated next to the sizzling lip.
Because of the stripes, I did not see it necessary to over do it. A geometric, silver necklace and studded earrings seemed to polish off the look. I think my thick 1-in banded silver ring etched with tiny flowers would have been perfect here, but I still haven't found her:_( Keep praying she turns up for me, would you please?
Thought this necklace would be invaluable in its versatility
I rocked simple, black, round-toe wedges from Target (yay clearance!) in order to navigate the day more easily.
I am thrilled that these shoes do not give the feet a stuffed sausage appearance
as some round toe shoes do!
***Oh, and these boots for Nighttime;)***
Mom's right. A little bit of pretty lipstick always makes you feel a lot better:) Thanks again Mom.
This post was inspired by all of you who have already chosen a color for the coming hot nights and written to inspire those of you who have not taken part in this particular activity yet this season.
So tell me, What's your color?
