When the weather starts to get warm or, in San Francisco, less cold, I find myself itching to switch up every item in my makeup bag. I opt for brighter blushes, fun new shadows and a slew of new lip colors. Wallet, beware. I’m going for bolder, brighter, longer lasting shades that can work a full day and still look amazing.
I could tell I had been on a major lipstick splurging kick recently when I found myself desperately needing an organizer in which I could stack and see (finally!) all the new shades I had. I went for this inexpensive option on Amazon and I’m already loving it. I finally can see all of my lip colors, have space for a few of my favorite skincare items and can also store a few of my favorite eyeshadow palettes in one place. I find that I’m actually going for more and more diversity in my daily looks because I can finally see more of what I own, including a million and one different and new lipstick shades. I’ve definitely been opting more to pinker shades, both bright and muted, transitioning to darker berry for nights out and long lasting tints for days that I already know are going to be long with little to no chance for a lipstick touchup.
