One of the items that I was most excited about picking up during the most recent Sephora VIB Sale (click here to see that haul) was the new Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette.

I just found out about this cool website that helps you figure out your best lipstick color choices. YouBeauty┬áis a website associated with Dr. Oz that has a lot of quizzes that you can take to help you find your “perfect” lipstick, eyeshadow, etc. The whole site is based on the “science of beauty.”

I took the lipstick quiz (click HERE to take it), and my perfect bold shade was watermelon and my perfect nude shade was dusty rose. In addition to the color family, they also give a few recommendations on particular products and provide solutions for problems you identified during the quiz. I think the site is fun and interesting!
