Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey
Noelle's beauty stats: 23; long curly chestnut brown hair; brown eyes; combination skin; part African-American, part Irish and German. Keeps skin clear by exfoliating and moisturizing daily.
"This berry color is really versatile. It looks great whether you're in jeans and a t-shirt or a cocktail dress."
Colleen's beauty stats: 34; brown-black hair; green eyes; fair skin; extremely low-maintenance beauty routine.
"Another lipstick that I now need to own. It has a great, deep, color and just enough shine."

Uses a heavy moisturizer at night and a lighter one during the day. Seriously cranky without eight hours of sleep every night.

Wendy's beauty stats: 40-ish; naturally wavy highlighted hair with a mind of its own; blue/green eyes; dry skin with some visible laugh lines; dark circles not at all helped by a horrendous commute each day!
