Cotton candy, roses, bubble gum, strawberries, so many memories stem from this color. There is just something about the color that energizes me. When I was little I use to wear this sparkly pink lipstick, then as the years went on I steered away from bold colored lips and went with neutral glosses. I have been wanting to find a pink lipstick that could go with anything. I searched and searched but nothing was really right.
Last year I was fortunate enough to participate in a charity event for Run for the Cure in Vancouver. The event was amazing. Not only did it raise awareness, it allowed me to wear my favorite color while remembering and embracing all that have been touched by this cause. On this day I had the chance to meet Erin Ireland, Vancouver based Foodie who wore this stunning Pink Lipstick. I left that day and didn’t ask the specific color and as the days went on the question was burning in my mind. I finally decided to contact her and find out. She informed me that this amazing lipstick was by Yves Saint Laurent, their Rouge Pur Couture #49 http://www.ysl.com/
I went out immediately and bought it and it quickly became my newest obsession. Everytime I have worn it out I have had so many people, men and woman, come up and comment on how great it looks. For some reason I was scared to wear such a bright color, which is a little surprising as I feel I have this “little but loud” attitude. I can truly say that this new find is one that I will purchase over and over with the years to come. One thing I have learned from this little bold tube is that you have to put yourself out there and try something crazy and new. You might just surprise yourself and put a little spice back into your life.
I want to say thank you to Erin for introducing me to YSL’s #49. Not only does she have great taste and style but she makes banana bread that’s “To die for”. http://itstodiefor.ca/ . Stay tuned for an upcoming post for a home-made banana mask!
