Creating a Desert Island Stash: What Would You Take? Dain Makes Suggestions!
Either you are culling through the pile of cosmetics searching for the “perfect” (fill in the blank) or you might be heading for a trip or just cleaning out. Maybe you are just trying to cut back or starting to build your cosmetic kit and want to know what you should – or shouldn’t — have in that box/drawer/train case to have you looking fabulous.
Dain from the LipstickPageForums.com gives you a couple of posts with her faves but what sets this post apart is that she breaks down each product and tells you what to look for. She’s smart and knows her stuff and really gives you some great ideas on how to select what’s perfect for you– as well as giving you her list of faves.

If you haven’t seen the Lipstick Page Forum, it’s a long-standing site that was built around lipstick– and all the different shades from different brands and comparing them in color familes. Now it’s home to a forum, blogs and interesting people — many of whom I would am honored to call friends.
As it turns out the LipstickPageForum and blogs have shut down– read only content is available.
