And The Set List You Stole Off The Stage Has Red And Purple Lipstick All Over The Page…

Maybe it’s my mothers voice that’s been ringing in my ears since I started wearing makeup, “Cathy, you need to put a little lipstick on!” but I never feel like my look is complete without a little color on my lips. While red is undoubtedly my go-to shade, I figured that since fall is upon us that my lipstick collection could go for a bit of updating. So I headed to my local drugstore and purchased almost twenty lipsticks (don’t worry, I was able to return the ones I hated…I checked!) and came across these eight shades that I just couldn’t get enough of. From nudes to purples to an obvious obsession with “cherries” here are a few of my favorite shades that you too can pick up at your local store.

    Coral crush is absolute favorite lipstick! I might have a breakdown if Maybelline ever discontinues the color – looks lovely on you by the way. And I’m definitely going to try-out Plum Velour, totally feeling plum and dark berry lips for Fall. Great picks!

  12. I can’t leave the house without at least two kinds of lipstick in my bag!

    Cherries in the Snow was Jackie Kennedy’s favorite lip shade. There was even a tube found in an evening bag that she owned after many of her things were auctioned off for charity. It’s also one of Revlon’s oldest lip shades. And, you have the perfect coloring for it. :)

    When I was forwarded to your blog form Refinery, I was hoping you’d have a “Guide” to how you came about choosing your top 8 out of however many. Like if you have this skin tone, go for these kind of shades, etc. Mazel tov to you for finding YOUR hue, but this helps your readers how?

    • Thank you for your comment, Joanna! My post was meant to tell my personal experience and what shades worked best for me. As with all Poor Little It Girl posts, they are meant to inspire readers to take my fashion/beauty tips and advice and interpret them into your own life. Updating my fall lipstick collection was something I wanted to share with my readers and spark an interest in my readers. Hope this helps! xo Cathy
