Would you rock plum lips (I’m jealous of you)?

I’ve always admired women who could pull off bold lipstick. Erin is one of them, she has these goddess lips that look great with just about any color of lipstick! My problem could be a lack of lips…. I swear they are just under-developed. I blame my mother. No upper lip. So for me – I stick to glosses, but if you’re like Erin GO BOLD! If you’ve got it, flaunt it!

I got a sample of this BEAUTIFUL plum lipstick from Smashbox (might have to hand it off to Erin for a real review) and I was instantly lip-envious. It’s such a gorgeous color! I wish I could pull it off!

Do you ever go bold with your lipstick? Which is your favorite shade?

Black Plum – Deep Berry

Legendary beauties are unforgettable for their daring, iconic style.

Get famously bold lips that stand out from the crowd with Be Legendary Lipstick. This ultra creamy formula is packed with vitamins C & E, shea butter and a unique moisture complex to provide instant and long-term moisturization while saturating lips with luxurious color. With its super comfortable wear and lustrous finish, you’ll be ready to rock your own iconic look.

Pair the lipstick with Smashbox’s Lip Liner!

Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have #9!

Actually, I’m kind of cheating. I’m picking two different gift sets for my #9 spot. So sue me. They kind of go together – like peanut butter and jelly! Or maybe primer and eye shadow?? Okay, I’m not funny.

Anyway – I love these two kits – not only because I love the products, but because I love the packaging! I know it’s wrong to judge a book by a cover, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t like good packaging on makeup. C’mon, you agree with me.

Smashbox has released two awesome sets, Studio Pop for Lips, and Studio Pop for Eyes.  Each set comes in a cute little white tin – wrapped in a bold wrapper!
