Welcome to a lip-tastic post-Oscar’s Links We Love. While I am admittedly not the biggest makeup expert, I do love my pink lip glosses and pink lipsticks. And since the shade I’ve been wearing since 2004 is now a trend, I’m all over it.
With that said, here are our favorite reads this week:
Why we loved it: I’ve read more than a few Oscar beauty articles today (It’s part of my job! I’m not slacking!) and I liked this concise gem from Allure the best. With categories like “Best risk-taker” and “Best effortless hair,” this is a simple and fun look at the best of last night. I’m glad Michelle Williams won “Prettiest lips” – that pink is my favorite lip color, and it is awesome that they didn’t use the coral shade of her dress.
Trendspotting: Pepto Pink Lipstick- Color Me Rouge
Why we loved it: As I said above, I love the pink lipsticks! I actually learned I look best in a bright, pretty pink at a MAC makeup counter six years ago. Since then, I’ve never looked back. Good thing, since “Pepto pink” (what a name, right?) is a trend. Looks like I knew something was cool before you did! I win! Or something. Anyway, this is a fantastic article with tons of resources to find the best pink lips for you.
REVIEW ~ Milani HAUTE Flash Shimmer Lipglosses – Spring 2012 – Love For Lacquer
Why we loved it: We learned about this blog when Jessica commented on last week’s Links We Love on our Facebook wall — and we’re glad she did. We love her website! And I was not exaggerating about today being lip-tastic. I really liked Jessica’s review of these bright, ultra shimmery lip glosses from the Milani HAUTE Flash collection. I really want to buy the “Flashy” color — it’s very me and oh so Pepto-chic. Yes, I just said that. I’ll be on the lookout for these at my drugstores. I love the $6.99 price tag!
Hydroxatone Review and Giveaway – MySyleSpot.com
Why we loved it: Because we love reviews of our products! My favorite line was about our Luminique Facial Brightener: “After 30 days, I noticed improvement on both my forehead and upper lip. This cream worked amazingly to fade some spots. The big spot on the forehead has faded significantly and has dispersed a bit. I was super impressed with this product and will certainly continue to use it in the future!” We love it, too! Want to win our products for free? Enter the giveaway on this post by March 7!
