Let your brain rest, my friend, whatever color or shade won't look good on me, no point wasting time thinking about it.

hi britt i never go out without mine either . .but the one I prefer and love the most is the cherry! Not only don't I go out without it but I have one just about everywhere. i love to go to costco just to buy that big family pack one. . it gives you 2 flavors of each . i recently got a spearmint one .. never had that one before. . its kinda refreshing . .but still cant take the place of my cherry ;) Oh and by the way . .congrats on your 200 posts .. it looks good on you :)

britt you just must get to one of those stores like Costco just to get the big pack .. its all the flavors that you get to try . .plus you will never again be without your chapstick again ha ha ha i think i look a little clownish with lipstick and that is probably the reason i never started wearing it in the first place! love my chapstick !

I don't leave home without my Cherry Neauites!!! It's the best!! I love this lip gloss. I don't really like chap stick, but this is basically the same, just waaaaaaaay easier to put on because it's softer. ;)

Cherry Neauties is the BEST! It's waaaay better than chapstick. It's softer and it tastes better too! It's all natural so there are no added chemicals or preservatives, which probably helps with the texture. It's the only Cherry flavored thing I like. They have 4 flavors (I have them all and they're all great!); Cherry, Peppermint, Strawberry, and Original. The Original is just plain, but it's kind of sweet because they are made with honey. All of my friends like the Peppermint the best, but that's my 2nd favorite (It's hard to choose a favorite because they all taste and feel so good!). It's an online company, which makes them environmentally friendly! That's another thing I like, all of these companies all have big factories that contribute to the air pollution because their lip nourisments made with big, huge machines. Neauties is hand made. Plus, since they're an online company, they don't have to use alot of paper and stuff... that saves the trees:) If you go to www.neauties.com you can read about it there. But I use it every day for everything because it's just so fitting! I had a dance performance and had to wear lipstick and I wore it under and over it and it even worked for that!! I used to wear it with other lip gloss when I did special things and got all made up, but now it's all I use! The best part is even for just a normal day, I can use it and make it look like chapstick, with a matte shine!! i LOVE this lip stuff!! It's the best and the only thing I buy nowadays!! www.neauties.com

nivea lip care products - from www.notmartha.org/.../

Nivea Caregloss & Shine. This was very similar but the formula had gained a cloying sweetness and the flavor of apricots. This still works really well but I just cannot put up with the flavor for very long. However I was pleased to recently find it being sold at my local Walgreens as ivea A Kiss of Shine. This is exactly the same as the tube of #2 from Canada, I bought it hoping it wouldn't be so sweet but no luck. Still, I'm really glad to see more Nivea lip products in the US since I've become a fan of them in the last year or so. I found these in a display that held lip glosses as well lip balms
i cannot even fetch my kid at the school 4 houses away without lipstick. am very pale and it looks not even natural if i go there even with the colored lip balm of nivea.

Used to use chapstick as a kid. Even preferred the cherry flavored stuff. Really needed to back then but now I don't seem to need it at all not even in the winter. Wore lipstick for a school play when I was little. Looked okay on stage along with all the other makeup they put on me. When it was over though the lipstick wouldn't come off. Horrible experience for a little boy who was at the time not considered very tough by his peers.

If I am running out to the store, I usually do not put anything on my lips. But when I am leaving home for the day, I will make sure I have my lipstick on. I have a lot of chapstick, but I usually reach for the lipstick. I do not carry it with me, I put it on at home, and do not do touch ups.
@saw2207 (1363)

sudlunts . . never a touch up . .I like the way you put that .. . but what then do you do if your lips get dry and chaffed when you are out ???

oh and when i do wear lipstick i get lots of compliments - it's probably useful to stick some on if you have a date

not only useful but i bet it keeps your lips nice and moist in case on that date in leans over for a kiss ;) happy MyLotting to you!

i often leave the house without lipstick but never without some make-up on. probably means i'm really insecure but i can't face the world without mascara
@saw2207 (1363)

jb78000 I dont think you leaving the house means you are insecure in anyway. I think it says more about the fact that you take pride in your appearance and want to look and be the best you can be. And there is nothing insecure about that in my book ! Happy Day to you and I bet you look as pretty as a peach :)

If I'm going out I usually wear lipstick and coverstick. Thats it I don't wear much makeup. Its just not naturally to have all this caked on makeup on your face. With me its what you see is what you get! LOL LOL LOL

I do. I can't really stand having lipstick - it "feels" heavy. I can also get out of the house without make-up. Hahaha. BUT I always have BLISTEX in Lip Tone inside my bag whenever I go out.

Blistex another good alternative ..though sometimes when I put it on it kinda burns. Thanks for keeping this conversation interesting with the new Blistex addition!

I do wear lipsticks sometimes matched to the dress that I am wearing. But generally I prefer lip glosses to keep my lips well moisturized and it also looks shiny.Lip glosses are good for summers I think.

Lip glosses are always good....just enough color yet not too much so it stains your cofffee cup!

Yes I do go out with out any lipstick or gloss on. I personally like gloss or any chapstick over colored lipsticks because I don't know why but I feal acourd with an ovios color on my lips. But I'm working on it evrytime I will were a little more colore and that might work so I will be confortable wering lipstick. I know I'm a odd person.

desteny114 you are so not an odd person! I do have tried to wear "big girl" lipstick but I cant seem to really ever get used to it. I hate what it does when you sip a drink .. the color around the rim of the glass is enough to make me never put it on! I will always be a chapstick/lipgloss kind of girl!

Funny but I used to work at a cosmetic firm and I had this boss that would always scream at me . .shari...put some lipstick on already! I think she thought lipstick was something that no female should go without. Ha I didnt listen to her then and I still dont. Maybe once in a while I reach for my lip gloss but I never leave home without my delicious chapstick! And as far as makeup I love to rub my eyes too much when I get an itch that if I have makeup on I look like a racoon immediately!!!

I love carrying around chapstick - it's a necessity. I always seem to get chapped lips. Otherwise, sometimes I'll carry around lip gloss- never lipstick, though. I don't think I've ever worn lipstick in my life - except for when playing dress-up as a kid.

I never wear lipstick. I do like lip gloss, especially a good flavored or yummy smelling kind. Lip gloss is definitely not a must have though...i could take it or leave it...depends on how much time I want to take to get ready.

Well I use lipgloss with color that sort of make up for lipstick because lipstick is a little heavier oon the lips so I just go for lipgloss with color I rarely wear lipgloss with color I just wear chapstik or clear lipgloss it all depends on what kind of makeup I wear.

I prefer lip gloss, that is, if I wear it. But most of the time I don't even wear any make up let alone my lip gloss...if I'm going to wear make-up without going all out, I keep it minimal, eye liner, and some lip gloss, and it's a wrap!
