Oh man do I love lipstick! It is for sure my favorite beauty product. I think that a little lipstick can do wonders for your mood. Lipstick can pull any sort of look together, or add a little something extra if you don't have a ton of accessories on. And seriously, everyone can rock a good lipstick, you just have to find the right shade for you. Be bold!
That said, I love love love trying new products. It is for sure my splurge item of choice. Side note, I am not the biggest fan on mate lipsticks, I have two brands that I love (Anastasia Beverly Hills and Kat Von D) but I definitely prefer satin finishes. I love products that I don't have to worry about all day. Mate lipstick for me is just a little too high maintenance. BUT, one that I love is Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick (I'm wearing the shade Outlaw up above in my "whoa the camera is super close to my face so I'm just gonna laugh it off" photo) You still have to check it a couple times throughout the day and re-apply but its for sure the least-amount-of-work mate lipstick I have found. And its the perfect shade of red for my skin tone (thanks to Sephora's Color IQ matching service–check that out if you haven't done it–it's a free service!)
Before we get into the goods, I wanted to share my favorite lip scrub. I use this about once a week and its such a treat. I have the bubble gum flavored one from Lush. I used to make my own, but I didn't always have all the ingredients on hand and this one is worth the $10 for me because it lasts forever and its all natural. Okay, now lets get into the lipsticks!
MAC's Mehr. This is my perfect Nude. Its more on the pinky side of the nude families which I love because it doesn't wash me out. This shade is almost identical to the color of my lips. It adds just enough pop for casual everyday looks. And MAC's lipstick formulas are just the best. Super soft and creamy.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in Cherry Blossom. This product is silky and long-lasting and has a satin finish. The formula is super pigmented and is infused with avocado oil—bonus! The color selection on these is great and the price is awesome!
Oh NARS! You are my favorite. So pigmented and creamy. This color is called Lana, and it is perfect for the summer season and tan skin. It’s the perfect shade of orange-red. It is a bold shade, so I usually pair it with really minimal makeup.
NARS Audacious Lipstick, Lana $34
More NARS. This color is awesome for fall. Except I usually wear it year round because why not. I wear a lip liner with this one, it bleeds easily. Overall, this shade makes me feel pretty bad ass ;)
Marc Jacobs Beauty, Boy Gorgeous. And boy, is it gorgeous ;) This is by far my favorite lipstick. It lasts all day, it doesn’t need a liner, and it is so hydrating. Its super pigmented, and its the perfect shade of berry. Highly recommend!
oh the power of lipstick ;) hope you all enjoyed! I tend to get obsessed with new shades very easily so I'm sure there will be a few more of these posts in the future. What are some of your favorite shades and brands??
