For me, my confidence no longer depends on whether I have on makeup or not. But I'd be lying if I said it didn't give me a little boost. :) Especially when I'm wearing a fabulous shade of lipstick; there's just something about it.
I came across this little article saying that "seventy five percent of women believe that lipstick makes them more confident, according to a L'Oréal survey." Now, the fact that the survey was conducted by one of the most prominent lipstick-makers in the world does kind of make you wonder about the statistic. hehe But I know for a lot of women, it's true. I don't think there's a thing in the world wrong with lipstick/makeup boosting your confidence as long as you're not dependent on it for the way you view yourself. Makeup is fun and creative and allows you to express yourself.
So, if you haven't heard yet, my favorite lipstick brand, Lime Crime, has just released a new collection called LIP NOIR that includes some really gorgeous colors for fall. I'm especially intrigued by the gray Chinchilla color! I have all 10 original Lime Crime lipsticks and am eager to add this one to my collection (and Mint to Be before time runs out!). They go on just like they appear in the tube...creamy, opaque, and smooth but without feeling too lipstick-y.
The weather here has cooled off substantially all of a sudden - we'll see if it lasts, but the drizzly, cool weather definitely makes me want to don a new fall lipstick...and a jean jacket over a dress and tall boots...yeahhhh...
