Before, lipstick came in the traditional bullet form only. Now, you enter the beauty section of a department store, and you see lippies in all its glory: bullets, stains, crayons, liquids, even minis! And don't let us get started on the long list of shades. While reds, pinks, and nudes are the classics, now, you can go plum if you're feeling edgy, brown if you're feeling retro, and even blue for days when you're feeling bold. But while playing with different lip hues may be fun, one main problem that most girls face when lipstick shopping is how to tell if a lipstick shade will look good on her.

We've got some good news for you, Candy Girls because we found an Instagram account that fixes this common beauty problem for beauty gals everywhere!

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
