and my lip gloss. I love my 3 Graces lip gloss for the effect, and the messages inscribed on the package. 3 Graces started as a “collaboration between a classically trained portrait artist and skilled makeup artist. The glosses feature beautiful, vibrant pigments infused with their signature lip serum for intense color that gives a radiant shine to your lips.” Each gloss has a positive message written on the package. I use their Pink Nude, and the package reminds me  ‘In Everything Give Thanks’. There are 7 colors to choose from. Your lips will be soft and hydrated, with high shine.

is my new signature red and highly recommend you give it a try. It is from Loreal Paris’s Rouge signature Lightweight Matte Colored Ink High Pigment collection. I was incredibly impressed with this product. I am very picky when it comes to both a red, and a matte lip. This one won my love for many reasons. It’s lightweight and not too drying for a matte. It lasts literally all night. Best of all the applicator is amazing. It is a doe foot type with a very pointy end so you can be extremely precise with it. I also recommend the shade “I Don’t”. They have since introduced 8 new reds, and I need to try them all. So go bold this winter with an powerful red, you’re worth it…
