It was a hanging with the little bro and a brunch shindig kinda birthday for me this year. I celebrated being one year older this past weekend surrounded by amazing friends and a couple of cocktails at Brooklyn restaurant, Soco which by the way has some amazing food. I got the party started early the night before with the little bro by my side. Sporting his Tupac "Thug 4 Life" sweatshirt he helped me mix up some cocktail concoctions to sip on while we munched on junk food. I am truly blessed to have reached another year and grateful to have such amazing friends and family to spend my day with. It was definitely a good birthday.

Lately my makeup regimen has been pretty blah. My routine for the past few months kinda sounds something like this: a quick dab of concealer, a few strokes of mascara and if I'm not running late a quick lip gloss application. I know, I know, I know that sounds so basic and boring. With the new year here I think it's time for a makeup makeover. I 'd thought it would be a great idea to begin my makeover journey by embracing color. On a recent trip to Sephora I tried on two bold lipsticks by Makeup Forever, Rouge Artist Intense #15 and Rouge Artist Natural #N31. To my surprise I liked both lipsticks but it was the purple goodness of Rouge Artist Intense #5 that stole my heart. I tested the waters of Rouge Artist Intense #15 for the first time on New Years Eve and it was a hit. The color was rich and didn't require a thousand reapplications. Even my bartender complimented me on my new bold lippie. Yes people this lipstick has been bartender approved.
What are some of your favorite colored lipsticks?
