About Shannon

I'm a makeup junkie with an addiction to color and skin care products. I was a makeup artist years ago, and now focus on maintaining my 41-year-old self with top-end products from multiple lines, both high-end and drug store. My focus is on quality, not price. I became a blogger because I feel I have the ability to offer intelligent, approachable reviews on products for all price points. I enjoy working with mass-marketed as well as independent companies and always focus on the end result I get from a product. I am currently blogging part time because I am a mother with a full-time job, so I feel I understand today's woman, her needs and wants, and how to relate to her.

Something not commonly know about Shannon:
I have a special insight into the beauty industry because of my history as both a makeup artist and an SA in the high-end cosmetics business, which means I tend to approach each product in a very in-depth manner, focusing on ingredients and research in addition to the typical selling points of advertising claims, packaging and the like.

About Lipstick Musings

I focus specifically on quality, be it the most expensive high-end item or a drugstore find for less than $10. Where I get it is not important...how it works is. I also find that being more versatile and focusing on a wider price range allows me to reach more readers. While many blogs focus specifically on a particular type of branding, I focus on efficacy, and allow the reader to determine if the results (or lack thereof) are worth the money themselves. The site was launched in Launched June 2010, but I took a 7-month hiatus due to my mother's illness. I officially re-launched the site in April 2011.

History of the blog
Launched in 2010, Lipstick Musings was created as a creative outlet for my writing. As a former makeup artist and cosmetics SA, it seemed natural to focus on my love of everything related to beauty. I feel that as a former professional in the industry and as a dedicated consumer today, I can offer a well-rounded perspective on all types of beauty products.

Future plans for the blog
I plan to continue to grow the blog, increasing readership and focusing on varied but focused content including reviews and photos, as well as adding interviews and giveaways.
