A pink lip, whether it’s a lipstick, a gloss, or a stain, is about as unique to the Spring season as florals are. And if you watched The Devil Wears Prada, or don’t live under a rock, you know that’s not exactly revolutionary.
This Spring I’ve had the pleasure of trying out a new brand, and have to admit – I’m in love! When one of my best friends, Michelle McGrath, came to me saying that she was going to begin selling Younique Makeup & Skincare products, I won’t lie… I was kind of skeptical. Supportive, but skeptical nonetheless. I’ve had a great deal of luck with Mary Kay products, but figured that was as far away from Sephora and Ulta that I’d dare to sway. As with a variety of things in life, when your best friend insists that you try a new product or product line, you try it – And I’m glad I did, because here’s what I found:
I wore the Moodstruck Opulence Lipstick in “Conceited” from the time I got ready for my day on Saturday, until the time I went to bed! It went on smooth, stayed feeling light and never dry or sticky! With just minimal upkeep, I was able to wear this fun, subtle shade without feeling like I had too much makeup on. At just $19, this lipstick is a steal! With how infrequently you have to apply it during the day, I’m pretty sure this $19 investment will last me YEARS!
In the photo below, Michelle went for a more exciting look with this dark pink Stiff Upper Lip Lip Stain in “Skittish.” At the risk of sounding dramatic, I’ve got to say, the Younigue Lip Stains are to die for! I’ve tried a lot of different, higher end brands in search of one that I truly love. I’ve always found them to go on looking like I painted my lips with water colors, and then an hour later it looks like I drank too much Hawaiian Punch. Not these! They have a rich, full coverage color that really holds on. They are completely worry-free – they don’t smudge or come off on your coffee cup! (or wine glass, depending on what end of the day you’re at…) If you’re anything like me and scoff at lip stains, do yourself a favor and try these out!
There you have it – A couple of my Spring makeup favorites! Don’t even get me started on the sunless tanner… We’ll save that for another day!
Like what you see? Go ahead and place your order for these products and hundreds like it right here on Michelle’s site! She has a party going on now through May 27th, but don’t worry – you’ll be able to access all of these same great Younique Products via that link forever! Remember, I wouldn’t endorse something I don’t completely love, even if I do completely love Michelle – HAPPY SHOPPING! 🙂
