I recently attended a posh shopping event for Laura Geller + Birchbox held in downtown SoHo which featured guest and make-up artist Laura Geller! Her one stop shop beauty boxes can help any girl get it together in 5 mins flat. I spoke to the make-up guru herself and wanted to know what is the most important piece of make-up a girl needs this upcoming spring season and her answer…”LIPSTICK (sidenote: I love her)! Your foundation, mascara and plush will always stay the same but your lipstick tells a story about you. It expresses your mood and who you are. Don’t be afraid to try new colors.”

And that is exactly what I did. Laura’s lipstick crayons provide a rich hue and a moisturizing effect that kept true to its promise even after a Mexican dinner.

While you are checking out her collection at Birchbox please visit a lovely sales associate by the name of Emily in the build your own box room. It’s like Christmas everyday in there. These samples are a great way to try out product before buying a full size bottle. It’s also a great place to stop and get your mini samples before a trip…you know that 3oz rule is no joke to TSA agents. Enjoy! (Product Junkie for LIFE)
