What Lip Color Scares You? #BuryMeMondays

Today’s question isn’t about what works and what doesn’t. Today’s question is about what you won’t even attempt to test out.

Once upon a time I stuck to dark lipsticks because I thought that’s what a dark skin black woman was supposed to do. Later, I had to push past all the shoulds and oughts when it came to my ideas about what lip colors were okay for me to wear. ┬áSo I understand being apprehensive about trying something new.

So what’s a lip color you are scared to try? Reach out to me on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat(shantafabulous). And if you’re looking for inspiration there are lots women wearing different shades in the #nobarelips30 hashtag across social media.
