The Power Of Lipstick

I'm not your average and every day lipstick wearer. Nudes and tinted lip balms are reserved for working hours, then the weekends it'll be a bright pink and matte finish. But only people who wear lipstick on a regular basis will understand the power of it.

Rarely will I venture out from a nude-pink or a 'my lips but better' shade at work because I'm in my professional mode and a non-attention grabbing lip will keep me focused on my work. When I think about how long it takes me to apply my makeup during the week (about 10 minutes), I prefer to keep my look simple and easy. Lips are always the finishing part for me, but it's the last piece of the puzzle for my face that day.

My love for the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are well documented (see this post and this one!) and these are the bad boys that come out at the weekend. My lips aren't that big, so wearing and applying a bright colour is tricky and time-consuming, but the confidence boost afterwards is so worth it. Coco Chanel even said "if you're sad, add more lipstick and attack" proof that lipstick is a one-of-a-kind armour. But wearing lipstick does feel like warpaint and that you're never ready to go into battle (aka the queue at the bar) unless you have you favourite shade of red.

Lipstick can me so much more than simply a shade to match your outfit. It's a confidence boost. It's something to cheer you up. It's what makes you you. It's what brings out the best in you.

What does lipstick mean to you?
