I swear I'm not sponsored by MAC. I just love their eyeshadows and lipsticks. Plus, they're so cheap, you can afford to experiment a bit. Not only that, but they have a recycle program, so you can bring 6 empties in and exchange them for a free lipstick! It's super funny, too . . . as I type this, one of my co-workers just stopped by my office and said, "Ooooh, new lipstick? I really love the color!" No joke.
A few weeks ago I was in Nordstrom and I saw a "limited edition" lipstick, called 5N, I'm not kidding people, it's the BEST color I've found, so far...in my life. It really is the ideal plum-brown-lipcolored shade, at least for my coloring, but I suspect it'd be a favorite for many. It was sold out when I was in there today and they will only have it for a limited time, so I'm gonna stock up.
Go. Buy it. Now.
