I will openly admit I have an obsession with lipstick. Not just lipstick, but lip stain, lip gloss, lip balm, liquid lipstick…so, pretty much anything lip-related. There are always so many new colors coming out that it’s so hard to keep up, but here are some classics that you can always rely on.
1.The Perfect Red
Every woman needs that perfect red lip! I can’t tell you how many red lipsticks I’ve gone through to find that one good one. My absolute favorite is the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Flame Red. It. Is. Perfection. It’s a lip stain so it doesn’t require retouching after eating or drinking, and it truly does last all day!
2.The Perfect Natural
I love Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina-Dusty Rose for my daytime lip color. It’s a liquid lipstick so I can apply it once in the morning and am good for the entire workday. It’s smooth and natural, and slightly enhances your natural lip color.
3.The Perfect Pink
It’s hard to choose a favorite pink, but if you’re going to wear pink, you might as well choose a bright one! I love Bite- Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Sangria. It isn’t a liquid stain so you do have to touch it up after eating or drinking, but it’s so pretty that it is worth it!
4. The Perfect Nude
Essence Nude Longlasting Lipstick- Porcelain Doll is a soft nude that doesn’t disappoint. It’s super cheap (2.99 from Ulta, at the link above) and is a creamy nude that doesn’t look too dull. Nude lips are a great choice when you want to play up the eyes and do a more dramatic look. Finding the right nude can be difficult, but when you find the right one for your skin tone it can pull your entire look together.
5. The Perfect Dark
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick- Trust Issues is a gorgeous dark matte lipstick that requires very little retouching. Dark lips are a good choice for a night out on the town and when you’re going for a dramatic makeup look. Especially this one, since you don’t even have to take it with you to keep reapplying after you drink or eat something.
Make sure you test colors out before you buy them. Everyone’s skin tones are different so it’s important to find the best lipsticks that will complement you. And have fun with it! You don’t always have to opt for something conservative because you’re too scared you won’t pull something off. As long as you like it, that’s all that matters.
