The Real Girl


My new favorite lipstick (and her friends)

Danielle Bisbano - Sunday, February 10, 2013

So, yeah, I’m in Rhode Island so I’m one of those people that got completely snowed in this weekend. Thankfully, we never lost power so I have actually been loving every minute of it. Playing with makeup ranks among my absolute favorite things to do. Surprised? I didn’t think so. Being housebound for three days ensures that I can actually justify a few hours of play time. Woo hoo!

I recently scored some awesome Make Up For Ever lipstick palettes at 50% off because they are being discontinued. I initially ordered one of them and liked it so much I scooped up another three before it was too late. Like a good girl, I do my due diligence and try out every single color before I put it in my kit. Yesterday was a perfect day for such a venture and, twenty lipstick shades later, I know exactly how each one wears and applies and I am psyched that I just built up my kit with some quality items at a great price.

Here is my conundrum: I fell in love with one of the shades. What’s so conundrum-ish about that? Well, this perfect lipstick is now discontinued.

Truth be told, I haven’t found a shade that I like for myself THIS MUCH since I was 15 and fell in love with a color called Partly Peach from the long extinct Jane line. It’s a little scary that I still remember this in such detail; my makeup obsession runs deep! It was a CVS special and cost probably three dollars but I loved it. It’s long gone now and, had I known it would be gone forever, I would have saved that scraped out tube to bring to a makeup counter so at least I could have a chance at finding a suitable replacement.

I shall not, however, suffer the same fate this time! Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, I was able to figure out what this shade actually is and find some full tube leftovers on Amazon. Yeah, baby!

Nigel Beauty Emporium has these palettes for $20 each right now but they are running out. You will have to call to order them because they are not listed on their web site. If you want to check out the shades you can go to the Make Up For Ever product page but you can’t actually buy it there. You could probably do some careful Googling and track some down on Amazon or somewhere else. Try Googling “make up for ever lipstick palette”. They are a great purchase because you really get a good variety of shades and finishes in every palette. There are creamy, full-color shades along with sheer, shimmery shades and they all blend really well with each other if you want to mix them up yourself. The already dug into palette above (hehe) is number 5, Praline Harmony.

Okay, I am signing off for now. I have an Amazon order to get in ;-)
