"Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick."-Gwyneth Paltrow

I like lipstick.

To say I have an obsession may be a understatement. This is my current collection- ranging from light pink to bright orange and everything in between. As far back as I can remember I've been allured by the beauty of bold colorful lips. Even in middle school there was hardly a day that I went without my L'oreal "coffee bean" (mud brown) lipstick. It was hideous, but I stood out. 

My lipstick has come to be almost a trademark for me. I leave it on coffee cups, pens, I stain the inside of my handbags with it, smudge it on clothes, and I often have it on my teeth. My friends like to joke about the insane amount I carry with me at all times (proof here). I even have been known to wear it at the gym...I know, I'm one of those girls. 

speaking of lipstick...here are a few fun shots from the Bay Area Blogger Meet Up in San Francisco last night. I had a great time. I got to ride up with a new friend Lisa who made the two hour car ride a blast! I'm wearing M.A.C.'s Impassioned.

Let's start a trend on Twitter. Since so many of you love lipstick or are getting inspired to try bold colors-let's share photos of your lipstick(s) on Twitter. Use #lipsticklove

Kristina said...

lipstick really can give the stylish point to an outfit. But it's also a little tricky to wear, but you definitly rock it!

Love,
Kristina

What a gorgeous collection! We all have our addictions :)

Emy said...

One can NEVER have too many lipsticks! Have you ever tried the Maybelline ones? They're really good, cheap, very creamy and they last quite a while. They are my favorite! I see your also a MAC fan though, they are hard to persuade hihi

Kate {domestikatedlife} said...

I am the same way with nailpolish -- though i'm trying to be more brave and try new lipsticks!

taylor said...

fashion clocked said...

I cant believe this post- yesterday i picked out all of my lipsticks and lined them up in such a similar way to post on my blog!( as part of a photography post) crazy the pics will be on next week. Your collection is gorgeous and i will mention you in my post- how crazy...Katie.xx

fashion clocked said...

jillian m. said...

ha! you're fabulous though! i just recently started getting into lipstick (i was always a lipgloss girl) and i wear it almost everyday now. i love the matte finish and the boldness of it. it just screams confidence.

Tara said...

How fun! I used to be obsessed...but then I went through a phase where I hated lipstick and threw them all away! Now, I am slowly building up a collection again.

Helena from BrooklynBlonde said...

haha, i'm the same way! I have to try more Revlon lipsticks since their nail polishes have become my favorite in terms of quality.

Katy said...

This is too cute! I have a love-hate relationship with lipstick, half the time I wipe it off after applying it because it looks too bright! And then sometimes I totally embrace it. But clear lip gloss will forever be my favorite thing in the world. :-)

Anna Jane said...

you have quite an impressive collection! love it. i'm slowly easing into lipsticl ;)

Kinsey Michaels said...

what a gorgeous collection though!!! i don't even own a single shade of lipstick... but when i finally spring for a bold shade, i'm crediting you and Mara for inspiring me to take the leap!

by the way, i totally bought the ingredients to make those cake batter crispy treats!

Flora said...

WOW you're like my sister with her lipglosses! xx

Stephanie said...

have to tell you that after seeing your "make up bag video" i lost my fear of lipstick. for years (forever it seems!) i've worn pretty much a color free mouth (i have about 10 tubes of pink sugar bobbie brown lip gloss floating around my purse, house, and bathroom!) after i saw your cute video, i bought 5 tubes of pink lipstick in varying shades and am LOVING them. thanks for inspiring me back to my signature color and helping me break out of a ridiculous fear of my bright big lips (which are in all actuality a huge asset!) this is why i love blogs. real (and amazing) people inspiring others... happy weekend!

Taylor Sterling said...

Stephanie-- this is why I love blogging! The fact that I can help inspire someone makes me feel so happy! Even if it's lipstick I am so glad you are now back into something you've missed and it makes you feel good!! Don't be afraid to tweet a photo or something! I would love to share!! xx

The Fancy Teacup said...

Lipstick galore! I'm one of those lip color obsessed girls too. Love it. Great shot on the window sill.

And MAC Impassioned hue is so perfect on you, paired with that darling leopard dress (such a cute collar!)

much love.

bobindsayboutique said...

I love lipstick too! Blending the colors I have or pairing them with different pencils/glosses is my fave. I also enjoy using them as eye shadows, blushes, Indian facepaint, whatevs. I just got the best red ever-- "Legendary" by Smashbox. And it only took me about fifty different samples before I found it! (shout out to the friend I drug behind me... Thanks!)

I like seeing so many of them lined up, it makes me happy to look at. Cute post.

Lisa said...

My blog post today was on lipstick too! :) Favorite spring beauty trend for sure!

I know you're super busy with all that's happening with Glitter Guide and SS, but if you have a minute, I made a ridiculous Hot Chocolate French Toast. Not healthy, not gluten free, but when you want to indulge, this is a life changer for sure :)

Andrea Britton said...

I love how red lipstick can make me feel so glamorous, even with jeans and a tshirt. I'm a big fan of the red burt's bees lip blams when i want a red that's more casual.

Monique said...

I just made the jump into bright lipstick last week and actually purchased the exact same shade you're wearing - MAC Impassioned. I LOVE it. It makes for a great change from my usual smoky eye look.

Trou, .bleuebird said...

What a great collection of colors!

Fauxshionable said...

Great shots of the lipstick. It's truly the best accessory!

Tara said...

ooh thanks Marcie!!

The BB said...

I love your pops of color from lipstick. I have been trying to do more of that myself lately.
I highly recommend Tarte's LipSurgence stains. They are great for on-the-go with their crayon shape.

Alejandra said...

Hi so I'm new to your blog and I just wanted to let you know that you inspired me to go buy some lipstick. I don't mind that it gets all over my burritos or that my BF knows when i snuck a drink of his Coca Cola...I just love it! I bought Revlon's Fire & Ice. It's fab! & I don't plan on stopping there! Thank u!

Drew {Coral Cafe} said...

Love the lipstick lineup!! I've started to try bold colors and am in LOVE with how it still gives you color throughout the day even when it's wearing off!

You look fab in hot pink lips, by the way!

Erin said...

You crack me up because you're a girl after my own heart - I think I have around 7 or 8 lipsticks/glosses in my purse at this moment. I love bright lip colors as well - can you reccommend some products that keep the color from bleeding or rubbing off?
Love your blog - keep it up :)

carrie1 said...

Damn the Coffee Bean lipstick! I always tried to wear it, even though I shouldn't have. Plus I couldn't find it half the time because it was ALWAYS sold out.

Jennifer said...

I used to wear "coffee bean" in high school too! LOL!
