Fashionable Lipstick

What woman doesn’t love lipstick? The ability to transform your face resides in one little reliable tube packed with color. Personally, my everyday purse has several different shades housed in the secret compartments of my bag (the compartments are secret, because sometimes I’m not even aware of where the lipstick tubes travel to, which is why I keep throwing more and more tubes inside my bag, unintentionally creating a portable department store makeup counter).

Sometimes all a woman needs to do is add some tint to her lips to create an instant face brightener sans makeup. And, don’t forget about my previous post about how lipstick can double as blush. There are so many brands of lipsticks out there, and with so much competition, manufactures have two options to make theirs stand out: develop an amazing product or create a captivating design. If a brand is really great they will combine the two and develop a product that not only works well, but looks chic, because let’s face it we do, sometimes, buy with our eyes. This is why I have decided to seek out the most alluring lipstick tube designs. Check them out below, and see if you’re not tempted to add them to your collection.

  1. Love the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté tube! But I’ve heard lipstick has lead in it — Is there actually lead in lipstick?

  2. Some lipsticks tested by the FDA were shown to contain traces of lead. For a full list of lipsticks tested, please visit http://www.fda.gov/Cosmetics/ProductandIngredientSafety/ProductInformation/ucm137224.htm#analyses.
