NEON shades are not just an ancient trend of the 80’s anymore. These bright look-at-me shades were seen all over New York fashion week for the spring 2012 collections as “highlighted” here and ways to wear it here, as well as filtering into the makeup category with Bobbi Brown introducing her Neons and Nudes collection. So of course I had to try my hand at this born again shade, by easily wearing it on my lips and in my accessories!
The KEY to pulling this shade off right now, is to NOT overdo it. I wore my highlighter colored lipgloss alone, no harsh lip liner, and with minimal color on my eyes and cheeks so that the focus was just on my mouth. I finally got a hold of that Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy lip treatment ($25) I have read so much about, and it has not disappointed. Yes, it was pricey, but after a couple uses, I am sold on why it’s gotten so much press. It contains ultra nourishing and age delaying ingredients that truly make my lips feel so hydrated, full, smooth, and overall yummy!! It creates a smooth base for me to wear my gloss on top of, but I’m afraid I’m going to get hooked on this expensive stuff and not be able to go back to my old $2 chapstick!! Yikes!!
