Lipstick with Olivia

Brooklyn TexasComment

When Olivia was little, she never snuck into her mom's bathroom to test shimmery eye shadow or tease her hair into a big Texan pouf: she was a serious tomboy and was far more interested in mud fights and skateparks than dresses and bows. That was until she got a drastic pixie haircut in college that left her feeling more masculine than her tomboy heart desired. Desperate to end her run as a Justin Bieber lookalike and find some color during a bleak, grey Brooklyn winter, she stormed into the Union Square Sephora and never looked back. The first tube she picked was a shocking neon pink worthy of Barbie—it's hard to get girlier than NARS Schiap—and it started an obsession. Olivia has worn countless tubes of lipstick into stubs, rocking bright, bold colors almost every other day, but only a few have stuck around in her permanent rotation. Here's the roundup of Olivia's classics.
