Pampered Mama: Red Lips
Even if you love fashion, beauty, and all around fabulousness, us moms don't always have the time to pull it all together. So, my new one stop favorite product for looking fierce is red lipstick. With just one beauty item, I can go from ho-hum to yum-yum :). Maybe its all in my head, but that little splash of red helps me feel sexy even during the worst bad hair/bad outfit/baby food all over me day. That's why to me it's a "Pampered Mama" product. I love how just one product can make me look and feel like I've been at the MAC make-up counter receiving a totally over the top glamor make-over for an hour.
The one issue I have with red lipstick however, is that it can be very tricky to find the right shade. It took me a few tries, but right now current favorites are the Chanel Rouge Double Intensite Ultra Wear Lip Colour in Ruby Lite and the Nars Pure Matte Lip Stick in Vesuvio. What I love about the Chanel product is that it is a lips stain, so it stays on all day, AND I can still kiss my little son without smearing red lipstick all over his face. The Nars Lipstick is great too however because the shade is so rich and deep that it brightens up my whole face. Basically, they're both great reds, and I'm totally obsessed with them!
