What’s the quickest way out of a nude lip rut?

The first step to breaking out of a nude lip rut is admitting that you’re in a nude lip rut.

(Note to self: I am in a nude lip rut.)

When all 15 (!) of the lipsticks and glosses in your purse are various shades of nude beige, light peach and pink…you are in a nude lip rut.

I figured the quickest way to break free (“break free, break from the chains!” Shout-out to Wilson Phillips!) was a bright, bold lip — something upbeat. And pink.

Because Fridays were made for pink.

After rutting around in my makeup stash, I came up with this — a bright, shiny pink lip, and it’s all MAC’d out. The star attraction is the new MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Good Taste.

First, I lined my lips with bright pink MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Shock Value, then used a lip brush to fill them in with Good Taste, before topping it off with a layer of bright magenta MAC Pro Longwear Lipglass in Full Speed Ahead.

Also got my cat liner goin’…

Also on my eyes, MAC Ricepaper Eye Shadow (brow bones, inner corners and lids), MAC Soba Eye Shadow (crease), NARS Black Valley Eye Paint (upper lash line), MAC Marked for Glamour Superslick Liquid Eye Liner (upper lash line); MAC Dollymix Blush (cheeks)

I can already tell I’m gonna be wearing this a lot this spring and summer. I can’t wait to try it with some gold, bronze or teal shadow or liner. Or maybe dewy coral cheeks, bare lids and mascara?

Hmm… Lots of ideas. :)

Later, gator. I’m off to dinner now with El Hub. Tonight it’s Thai, yum!

I wish there was a good movie out… I haven’t been to a movie in ages. Might just rent Catching Fire when I get home to watch it for the third time. Katniss is always an option.

I hope you’re doing something fun tonight. Got any good movie rental suggestions for me?

Oh, BTW, all three products in this lip look are available now at MAC counters and

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    I’m in a nude lip rut myself but have been trying to break free with some new fun (brighter) colors for the sunny weather. I’m glad to know I am not the only one addicted to nude. This color makes you look “Pretty In Pink” (maybe an oldie but goodie movie selection???)
