Happy National Lipstick Day, babes!
Growing up, my best friend’s mom was a Mary Kay sales lady. Every time I would go over to her house, it was like stepping into a salon. We were always her “testers” for new products and were given countless samples to play with. Truthfully, I believe I am the girly girl I am today because of her (I also owe my love and appreciate of Shania to her – thanks Rhonda!)
Now, as an adult, I have countless lipstick tubes in my vanity. No matter the outfit, lipstick is my favorite accessory to complete it. So in honor of #NationalLipstickDay, I’m sharing with you my 5 favorite lipsticks that I’m always throwing in my purse!
Ladies Stila is my GO-TO for lipstick in all cases. It is a long lasting liquid that is highly pigmented, goes on easy and doesn’t leave my lips feeling dry. The Beso Shimmer is my favorite red that I’ve ever owned (shout out to my future sis-in-law for introducing me to it!)
I love a smooth glide-on for my lip pencils, making it easy for me to knock out at stoplights (oops!) This pencil definitely does just that! And Sex Machine is the perfect pink mauve!
I’ve found the perfect nude – hydrating, highly pigmented, no smudge! I’m a sucker for an actual lipstick, versus pencil or liquid because of how hydrating it is. So while I may have to reapply once or twice at work, I never feel as though I’m having to put chapstick over my lipstick (which let’s all be honest, is the worst.)
On the pricier end, but can you really beat Tom Ford in the makeup sphere? Another highly pigmented lipstick, this lightweight, high-shine stick is one of my favorites for a pop of color with my outfits!
And on the opposite side of the price range, ColourPop is the absolute greatest place to find high quality, long lasting lip wear at a convenience store price. Seriously, you can get a tube of this stuff for under $6! Rumored to be the same formula as a very famous liquid lipsticK, this stuff lasts throughout the day! I can honestly say that I have about 30+ of ColourPop’s lipsticks and I’ve spent under $150 total. Sunday is a perfect light pink that looks great on every skin tone.
What is your favorite lipstick brand and/or color? Share it with me on my last post on Instagram! I’d love to add it to my own collection and try it out!
