bareMinerals: Pretty Amazing Strength lipcolor

I’m doing something a little different today – focusing on a lipcolor! There are only so many eyeshadow combinations out there, and I felt like it was time to start focusing on individual colors and products. So even though I’ll still post a full LOTD, the focus (and the title) will just be on one product.

bareMinerals Pretty Amazing lipcolor in Strength is hands down my favorite lip product. You’ve gotta have a bit of badass to wear it, though, and the more confidence you evoke, the better. It’s a true red, with neither blue nor orange undertones, and it’s fantastic.

Strength was my first red lipstick, which I bought about a year ago. I had always wanted to wear red lips, but I didn’t think I had the right skintone or lips for it. And then one magical day… I tried it on at Sephora, wore it around like a rock star for a day, and decided that, in fact, I can wear red lips if I want to! So don’t be afraid of reds, you red-phobes out there. Try one on one day, wear it like a rock star, and rock on.

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
