Schiap is in my top three favorite lipsticks of all time.

When I wear this, I think to myself “This..this is living”.

You can buy it here.

Also, I have the matching nail polish.

And last, a little fashion history for you. This color was named after Coco Chanel’s rival, Elsa Schiaparelli. Read about her here.

Lips on Fire: Pink Nouveau

I call this my delicious pink. It’s creamy looking and makes me think of dessert. Like cotton candy or perhaps frosting on a doughnut. It compliments almost every color in your scheme, and can be pulled off by blondes, reds, and brunettes alike. I’ve only been blonde and red with this color, but I’ve seen one of my South American girlfriends wear this with her dark hair and dark skin like it was made for her. How can that be possible when I feel as though it was made for me? Sneaky dessert pink.

This pink, called Pink Nouveau, is by MAC. And it can be purchased here.

Lips On Fire. Stila Caprice.

This week’s lip color is Caprice Fuschia by Stila, and it has a special place in my heart. I got this color in a gift bag for going to Betsey Johnson’s spring 2012 runway show last fall. I made friends with a girl who worked for a big magazine and she grabbed me and gave me a second row seat just before the show started. The little bag full of goodies was happily waiting for me. I thought this color was going to be a gloss, but like last week’s color (which you can buy here), it’s a cream stain and goes on very matte. Also, it stays on forever. I wear this color all the time. It’s a great summer color, but has just enough depth to have a place in my winter wardrobe too.

┬áIf it’s not obvious by looking at the below collage, this color needs to be applied carefully. With how long lasting it is, you need to make sure you correct any imperfect lines as soon as you apply it or else you need to just be all “oh, I’m going for the laid back look”…which is what I always say about the wrinkles on my clothes. *Pssst-I don’t own an iron*

I’m pretty obsessed with lip stains. This one is a show stopper, even Betsey Johnson thinks so. You can buy it here.

Lips On Fire. Number One Red.

I have this one client from Hong Kong. She comes in and heads turn. I’m talking all the heads in New York City turn. Beautiful skin, gorgeous face, amazing style…she’s stunning. Just trust. She always wears a red so perfect, so I finally had to ask her what it was. She reached for her Chanel bag and pulled out a little tube of what I was calling “the red of the century”. I’ve now started calling it “the red of every century”, because there was never a better red. And there will never be a better red.

It’s Sephora Cream Lipstain. Number One-Always Red. And you can get it online here. (Bonus: It’s only 12 bones!)

Lip stains are great because they stay on for a very long time. In fact, put this on slowly and carefully, because it is hard to fix a mistake once it’s been applied. This lip stain only needs to be applied once every 12 hours, if that. You can eat, drink, kiss..whatever, and it will stay on. I wish they were paying me to say that.

This lip stain and I are so happy together. We smile, we smile big.

Lips on Fire. Force Of Love.

The other day I met up with a friend and after the hugging and the cheek kissing she said “Where are your lips?”. I thought to myself, ‘I left home without my lips again? How embarrassing.’. So I guess I’ve turned into a lipstick monster of some sort. I felt as though I had forgotten pants.

After noticing how frequently I get asked in the comments or on facebook what shade I’m wearing in my posts, I decided to have a weekly lipstick spotlight.

First up is a beautiful summery color by MAC, called Force Of Love. I chose this first because it is so summery, I wanted you all to have a chance to wear this before summer is gone.

This color is brighter than you can tell in the photos. It’s kind of a neon pinky/orangey/coral. I love contrasting it with black, but it goes amazing with blues and teals too. As long as I’m stocked up on Force of Love, summer is welcome to stay.

I believe this color was a limited edition (which I smartly bought two tubes of!) but you can buy it on Amazon, here.

I wore this color all over Miami and I’ve been tempted to call it the Magic Wand of lipsticks ever since.
