Lipstick: Do or Don't?

I need y'alls opinion.
My roommate/bff, Ally, and I have been discussing this a lot lately and I want to see what y'alls thoughts are.
Is it weird to wear lipstick when you're in your 20's?
 At what age do you start wearing lipstick?
My mama religiously applies her lipstick, but I don't know what age you START wearing it. 
And I'm kind of starting to think I want to pick me out a signature color ;)
Particularly because I'm obsessed with Sydney over at The Daybook and her gorgeous red lipstick. 


and I feel like it ties your make-up together. 
Anytime I have lip gloss on, my make-up just pops better. 
But lipgloss wears off so quickly.. so I need your thoughts.

Is lipstick a DO or a DON'T?
and if it's a do.. what is your favorite brand, color, etc.?
I need info!

I looove to put lipstick on like this color or DO a pinky shade lipstick and then put a pretty lipgloss color over top of it :) I have to wear it or I look sickly! My lips are a sick purple blue color....and now that I have degraded myself to a pulp hahaha....

I say experiment with lip colors and brands! I have only used Mary Kay (which are great colors) but I too am looking for new ideas!!!

i love lipstick!! i usually go with a light pink/neutrally color, but girls that pull off red are awesome! sometimes i'll just do mascara + blush + lipstick and i still feel like i look pulled together. i say go for it :)

I don't wear lipstick everyday but I'm finding that I'm starting to wear it more often than I used to. This just gives you more of an excuse to take a trip to Sephora or the MAC counter and try on all kinds of things! I would keep it more light for the day but girl if you can pull off a hot red lipstick I say GO FOR IT...and I will be jealous because I am not cool enough to do that ;)

I say lipstick is a do! I love the lip liners and lipsticks from Urban decay....then just swipe your favorite gloss on top!

I wear lip gloss because I think it looks younger and I tend to have dry lips (making lip stick look terrible). I did wear lipstick (7hrs coverage one) for my wedding day and applied lip gloss over top. If it looks good on you I'd say go for it! MAC sells some good ones that have gloss mixed in for a smooth, glassy type finish (kinda like the best of both worlds.

I use lip gloss not stick :)

I use lip gloss or a lip tint, but I think lipstick can be fine as long as it's the right shade. I also don't think I'd wear it daily, only for formal or important events.

P.S. Thanks for following my blog! Good luck in the giveaway!

I've recently become a big fan of lipstick.. specifically the ELF mineral lipstick (eyes lips face). I have 4 colors but my favorites are Rosy Raisin and Runway Pink. They aren't dramatic colors but they feel like chapstick and are so moisturizing! You should try them out. They're only $5 and they go on sale a lot!

I wear both lipstick and lip gloss- your best bet is to go to the MAC or Chanel counter and have them pick out a color for you. Get a few different colors- get a racy red for when you want to go out and jazz it up.. then get a neutral/soft pink to wear everyday. It will absolutely complete your look and I know it'll look fantastic on you.

I usually only wear lip gloss, but it wears off SO fast! I'd love to wear lipstick so it would last longer.

I actually don't wear much lipstick but I do love lip gloss called Black Honey :) its so fab and loos great on everyone! xo great post!

Kati said...

I definitely say yes to lipstick. I can not stand lip gloss. I hate the sticky feeling on my lips and then if it's windy my hair blows in my face and sticks to my lips. It drives me nuts. I don't wear lipstick everyday, but definitely do when I dress up. I like Clinique lipstick a lot.

I typically use a light shimmery lip stick with lip gloss on top :)

I've seen a lot of girls hop onto the red lipstick trend, but make sure you try on the lipstick before buying it - a lot of girls don't pick the right shade and they end up looking odd.

Personally, I just use a lipgloss to enhance my natural lip color.

I wear rouge from Sophora. It's a matte color, and I love wearing it. I don't think there's a certain age. You should just wear it if you like it!

Meredith! said...

you know.. this is a really good question! Ash and I have been discussing this too! I love the red lip stain look but i just really feel like if i started doing it people would be like.. what the heck? lol

Jamie said...

I know what you mean!

I wear a lip gloss from Ulta but it lasts forEVER!

You can always wear lipstick and then put some lip gloss on top :)

I personally am not a fan of lipstick. I'd rather wear lipgloss! :-)
