Do you remember what shiny new item you bought with your own money? For me, it was a tube of pink frosted lipstick from Claire's. I thought it looked so beautiful in the tube. I can't find a picture of it on the Internet but I think most of you fellow 90s kids will know what I'm talking about. When you're a kid, you're pretty fearless and the teenage self-consciousness hasn't kicked in yet. I was 12 years-old when I bought this and I thought I was so cool. I had no idea how to work with my skin tone and it would be years before I really got that down. I wore that damn lipstick everywhere I went. My mom didn't really have much to say about it but my aunt told me that I looked quite ill as if all the blood had left my lips. My math teacher thought I ate something with powdered sugar. Yep, it was time to put that lipstick away.
Before I completely abandoned my frosted pink lippie, I would often pair it with an equally frosty baby blue eyeshadow. My goodness, it was an awkward time. I believe the shade is called Sterling Blue by CoverGirl and it looks like it's still being sold on drugstore.com! I thought pairing my favorite two colors at the time would make for a gorgeous combination. Fortunately, I wasn't tormented for my questionable makeup choices. However, I soon moved on to a glitter phase so it was all in the past!

I bought a few CoverGirl lipsticks at Walgreens several years ago and was so pleasantly surprised at how a creme burgundy or a brick shade would compliment my skin tone. Things were getting real (and a little pricy) after that moment. It's always exciting to find something that works like magic on you.
