Tuesday Treasures: Neutral Lipstick

Tuesday seems to be a good day to try something new on the blog! I can't promise this will happen every single week, but the more response I get, the more likely I'll be motivated to do it!

I've been asking some opinions lately on my personal Facebook page for people's favorite things. I really enjoy hearing about what people use/like in their day-to-day life, so I thought I'd make a segment on my blog where people can share their treasures. Some weeks it will be hair and make-up tips and products. Other weeks it might be something different like books or music.

You can respond here on the blog, or pop over to Glitterary Girl on Facebook as I think the majority of the action may happen over there. My apologies in advance if you have the urge to run out and buy everything you read about. My blog readers and friends will have some great picks!

Pick your treasure: What's your favorite neutral lipstick/lipgloss?

My pick: I adore MAC lipstick in Blankety. I "erase" my natural (medium pink) lip color with Benefit Lip Plump before I put on Blankety or else my lips will show through and ruin the neutral effect. Sometimes I wear Blankety alone, but most of the time I'll pair it with a  clear or almost clear gloss on top. It looks great when you have strong eye makeup and don't want to look like your whole face is overdone.

Ooooh, you've hit my weakness - I love makeup talk! My go-to neutral lipstick has to be YSL Rouge Volupte in Nude Beige, which is a pretty pink-beige with fairly opaque, moisturizing coverage. If I'm feeling more like a gloss, I go for Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian. I love Blankety on you, it's gorgeous! I'll definitely be checking it out in person next time I'm near a MAC ;)
