The Lipstick League — week of 6.27.11

Happy 4th of July weekend! Did you miss us last week? Your loyal Lipstick League had a minor techie glitch last week, and believe me—we missed you too! But we’re back :) In this week’s round-up, you’ll find a few IMATS recaps…and sadly my bad knee prevented me from going after all—so I don’t have a recap to offer you this year. I’m living vicariously through the dolls who did go and who are giving me all the 411. Ready for this week’s question?

What’s the one shade you wish you could pull off, but can’t?

Answer: For me, I’d have to say blues. I don’t seem to do very well with blues on my own. When other artists apply them on my eyes—they seem to look okay, but when I try…I look like a clown. I’m not really afraid of most colors, in fact—I welcome a challenge, but blues get me every time.
