Lipstick Talk: Basic Colors

Nude, Pink and Red
Good things do come in threes.  I can give you a list but I'm not in the mood to be convincing right now.  However I am in a good enough temperament to share my personal theories on lipstick colors.  Lipstick, as many of my acquaintances know, forms part of my daily armor.  I carry it around like a switchblade - tucked away but can be easily whipped out when the need arises.  Pardon my tendency for violent metaphors, but I thrive on emphasis.  

Let me emphasize that a girl does not need to hoard on all the lipstick colors out in the market right now.  Believe me I have a trove full of lipstick that I could not possibly use up in the next 10 years.  And no, I am not giving them away, charity or otherwise.  A loud voice in my head says that I only really need three lipsticks to carry on and face the superficial demands of life.  Nude, Pink and Red.

Its a bit tricky to choose the right hue or shade of these three colors that would match your skin tone.  Makeup Guru, Michelle Phan, has a video that would help you identify what lipstick shade would suit you best.  

As for me, I have found my perfect matches in Mary Kay Creme Lipsticks.  
  

When it so hard to choose, I stick to the basic lip colors and then I get peace of mind.
