Lipstick & Lace

For the Love of Nude Lipstick

I am a big believer in lipstick therapy.  Having a bad day? Buy yourself a lipstick. Got a new outfit or a pair of shoes?  Find yourself a complimentary lipstick. Breaking up with your boyfriend? A new lipstick will cheer you up a bit.

About 25 years ago, I survived a boat explosion. My left cheekbone was shattered after I was hit in the face with fiberglass from the speed boat I was riding in that hit a log in the water and blew up. Almost losing my left eye, I was lucky to be alive at all. While I was recuperating from surgery in the hospital, my best friend, Lisa Hanes, brought me underwear and a pinky-coral lipstick from Clinique. It made me smile. I wish they still carried that shade. There’s nothing like a new lipstick to make your day brighter! Here’s the rundown on some of the prettiest nude shades I’ve ever seen…

  1. I love lipstick, it’s definitely my favourite beauty product, I have so many! That’s a crazy story about the boat, I’m so glad that you were okay. Impossible to choose a favourite lipstick out of those, they’re all so beautiful.
