Everybody, say a warm welcome to one of our favorite beauty products, 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic! Dr. Christine M. is a PICU doctor who knows a thing or two about chemistry and biology, and puts that knowledge to good use telling us why certain products work, and why the ingredients in them are good or bad. Plus, she's a fellow beauty junkie, so you know we get along!
In the past I've avoided the dark fall lip, using the excuse that I preferred a nude or pink lip. The truth is that I could spend hours at the makeup counter, and finding a shade that worked with my skin tone was nearly impossible. It seems that someone at DuWop knew of my dilemma, and they have solved my problem! Their Private lipsticks use technology similar to the classic "mood lipsticks" of the seventies: Each shade will adapt to become your perfect match once applied. I have tried both the Nude and Plum shades ($22 each) with amazing results! The lipsticks go on the lip easily and feel almost like a balm as they apply. Immediately, the color will adapt to you, and I have found that the shades really do work well with my hard-to-match skin tone. The lipsticks are available in Red, Nude and Plum.
