People have been asking me what kinds of lipstick I use….and the answer is almost everything! Feels that way anyway. So, for those of you that are interested, this is my
My Personal Lipstick Collection and Guide
FYI – ALL lipsticks were given to me by my mom…I’m one of those lucky daughters that get all the makeup samples and rejects that my mom hates. Score!! Oh and thanks mom, you’re the best. Anyway…
1. Lancome strawberry dore (disc.) – this is an orangey-red that matches everything. It can be both dressy and a party! One of my favorites to where. Worn HERE.
11. Nuskin honey sun – this matches my lip’s natural color perfectly, making my lips look naturally more plump if I want! This will of course be different for eveyone, but very necessary. I like to slide it on when I want to look low key and not overdone. Tmi – I put it on sometimes at night when I have no make up on….oh ya honey…I’m totally not wearing makeup….totally. My lips are always this luscious *wink wink. Worn HERE.
If I had to pick 3 of these to wear forever….I would choose a coral (4 or 9), deep red (2), and fun pink (6 or 7)…ok and orangey-red (1)…I couldn’t settle on 3. Everyone needs to have those colors in their collection.
Brandwise…the lesser known brands, cheaper brands, and glossier lipsticks (melaleuca and also the shimmer lipstick) don’t last. The matte or semi glossy last the longest, most can last most of the day if I wanted it to, even after eating. The Lancome, Estee Lauder, Clinique, and Elizabeth Arden are amazing brands, I love how they didn’t make my lips dry or chalky like other brands can (like the nu skin). I’ve tried MAC, and liked it too. All in all, if you want just a few lipsticks…I would fork out just a little extra for your favorite one or two, and play around with the cheaper ones.
****If you don’t want to fork out the a lot of money for these lipsticks, you can always get similar colors at the drugstore. You can check out the talented and sassy Alison and her drugstore lipstick guide here…you will LOVE her.
