It didn't actually start until recently. Last year, I had three or four lipsticks, but I only wore them when I was getting dressed up. Now, I have around 20, and I feel naked if I leave the house without wearing any. That part began sometime late this summer, after I came back from France, but I can't exactly pinpoint it.
These are my absolute favorites:
I never would have picked Rebel out on my own--I loved it on my friend in Israel, so much that she dragged me to the MAC store to buy this and the matching lipliner. Whenever I wear it, I feel daring, so I usually pair it berry- or neutral-colored clothing.
The Estée Lauder is a pricier lipstick, but well worth it in my opinion. It has a hint of sparkle, has a huge pop of color, and looks great with just about everything.
Of all the reds that I've tried, this Milani color comes in at number 1--and costs only $6 at the drugstore! While I could do without the waxy feel, the color looks so great, and it stays on for a long time. Whenever I go out, I wear this.
And there you have it, my top-five lipsticks! All are tried and true, but that doesn't mean that I don't love to experiment. Happy New Year!
