lipsticks from lime crime,


There are fragrances, blushes, pencils and eye poppers, but of all the things that can make a girl into a lady, lipstick is my favorite. I admire lipsticks crayon-like attitude. It can decorate your pout, make your lips look like a landscape, and sometimes it leaves your lips for the edge of a coffee mug. 

When I was a little girl,  I often fawned over lipsticks in the cosmetic aisle of supermarkets. I let my fingers brush against the plastic cases, deeply wishing I could bring all of the bubblegum pinks and burgundy pigments home.  I remember being 8 years old and sneaking into my Mum's bedroom while she was preparing dinner, just so I could try all of her lipsticks on. She always had rose colored reds, which I never saw her wearing, but they were bold and they were compelling. (Especially when painted all over my teeth....) 

I didn't know what I was doing. All that I knew is that lips were for kissing and my boyband posters looked particularly inviting.   If only I could see those posters now.  I know they're filled with the shape of my lips..... in the color of a red rose.

 

Because of my love for colorful lips and all things whimsical, I was very excited to be gifted a package of lipstick from lime crime. If these lipsticks could talk they would say : I am adventurous, fanciful and merry.  A dazzling unicorn makes it's home on top of the purple tube, while bright colors peak through the tip just waiting to kiss you.   My favorite pigments are cosmopop (orange) and airborne unicorn (purple)

My eight year old self is gleaming right now, and my dishwasher is mad.

Kisses for you all!

    Oh Amy I've never seen a girl wear purple lipsticks that wasn't in a vogue like photoshoot so I never thought I'd try purple, but now seeing this I might I don't think it would look quite as nice on me as it does on you. It looks like you dabbed your lip colors on your dress I like that * nice touch :)

    Have a nice day Amy

  9. amy, if i have no other make-up on, i still wear my lipstick when i leave the house. your memories are of your mum's lipstick. mine are of my grandma, who would buy me pretend make-up, when my mother would NOT. my grandma would also let me select one, from her array of lipstick choices, & she taught me how to smack my lips together to make it set. this post is just another reminder of why your blog is one of my favorites, for your writing, & your photographs. you look amazing in every lipstick shade. :)

  17. I love lipstick. I'm especially loving bold, fun colors like those! I know my eyes are my better feature, but there's something so fun about wearing a nice, bright lip color instead.
