I am aiming to be more adventurous with my lip color. I have become comfortable with nude lips but sometimes a pop of color just helps your mood. To find my right hot pink, I rounded up my 6 empty cases of MAC makeup and went in for my free lipstick (great recycling program). It was the perfect solution to try a new color out of my comfort zone because when it's free you won't feel as guilty putting money on something you won't necessarily wear every day. Pink lips are hot for summer and my suggestion for a first time user is wearing them on a girls night out. Your ladies will help you embrace your hot pink lips and you won't worry what anyone else is thinking! So why don't you go ahead and try?
