Any other glamazons hate digging through their drawers, opening tube after tube, knowing the right lipstick shade is in there somewhere? This is how I manage to make the color search as fast and painless as possible.
I swipe the lipstick onto a bit of paper, then tape the paper to the side of the tube. Now I can quickly see if I grabbed the shade I’m seeking. It is also easier to see if I have a similar color that is a little darker or lighter. To make the search even faster, I keep the tubes loosely sorted by color, such as light pink, dark pink, red, neutral, purple, etc.. Anything to make the obsession easier, right?
