lots of lips

i'm linking up today for current crush thursday and if you couldn't tell already, i'm currently crushing on...lipstick!

now, if you had asked me even just a year ago what color lipstick i liked to wear .. i would have said, "lipstick? what for?" i can even remember a time when i was out to dinner with paris's whole family and his sisters and mom all had their lips bright red. they told me to slap on some of their lipstick so we could take a picture. they just handed me the lipstick... no mirror... to put some on. i didnt even know how to apply it with a mirror, let alone without one!

i think thats when i started to notice peoples' lipstick choices a little more. and now i just can't get enough. i started slow with some tinted lip glosses, and then i finally took the plunge and bought some mac lipstick! not gonna lie, i was so nervous when the lady was helping me choose that i had no idea what i wanted and ended up getting a color that i wasn't really happy with.

but for my birthday i treated myself to two new lip colors: creme de la femme and see sheer, both by mac.

this one right here is creme de la femme and it has definitely become my "go-to" color. if i leave the house to go almost anywhere besides school .. i put it on! who knew that i would ever be a lipstick person??

are there any lipstick colors that you guys are crushing on lately?

I'm with ya! I never wore it either, then one day just decided to buy some lippy to spruce up an outfit. My go-to colours at the moment are red and coral. Definitely makes an outfit! x

I love it but I get busy and forget to stop and put it on so I end up just throwing on a gloss. Love all these bright colors!

thanks so much for your sweet blog comments! i don't think i can pull lipstick off very well.... i'm a blonde haired blue eyed girl and every lipstick i've tried just looks too intense on me. i'll keep looking though :)
