Girly Girl Pick of the Week 11/07

So, there have been a few requests for lipstick picks for this week and I'd like to share with everyone a few of my favorites. Here's the thing, I've tried many cheapo lipsticks (hello?!? Wet n' Wild) and a few expensive lipsticks (not a fan of Lancome) and I've got to say that a lot of the "middle of the road" priced lipsticks are my favorites. Here's the thing, if you find one that works for you, get it and wear it and love it because lipstick colors come in and out of style faster than the seasons' skirt lengths!

My pick for this week since it also happens to still be Clinique Bonus Week at Nordstrom is Clinique Color Surge lipstick. I like Sassy Spice, but they have a wide variety of colors in this line of lipstick. I like it because it goes on a great color and stays there all day, I've put it on in the morning before and it lasts clear until I get home in the evening after talking through my job all day, and drinking drinks and snacking and the whole thing. I like to get it and pair it with Wet n' Wild lipliner, becuase I just can't bring myself to pay for an expensive lipliner, and it looks fabulous! I've had people ask me before if it's that long long wearing stuff, and it's not! (I can't wear the long wearing stuff, it dries out my lips and gives me coldsores)

It looks great alone, but sometimes for varitey I pair it with a nice gloss over the top, like Clinique's Glosswear for Lips Sheer Shimmer in Sunrise or Sunset.

And when the day's nearly done, I perk up the shine and moisture of the great lipstick with Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve. I'm addicted to it, it's glossy and yummy and lasts forever!!!

By the way, I keep saying it's Bonus Week, and while I never pass up a freebie, this isn't the best free gift they've had. Just so you know.
