My favorite makeup product to buy is 100% lip colors. They have always been my favorite because I really think that they can make/break an outfit or just give a simple outfit that bold look I’m going for. I have a variety of colors because they are so versatile and fun to play around with! I usually go for a matte finish, but lately I’ve been topping mine off with a gloss which I loooove. Not the best for kissing but I still smooch on my babies;)
One thing I love more than lip colors- affordable lip colors. This is mainly why I have a ton because I love to try drug store brands that won’t break my bank if they don’t turn out how I expected them to. Some of my favorite drug store brands are NYX, Milani, and the occasional E.L.F product. There are a mix of drugstore/high-end brands below. These are just a few that I’ve been wearing often!
This first one is a new one that I just got from Target the other day and I love it so much! This is NYX Lingerie- Bedtime Flirt. It is so cheap and but so nice. The formula is super smooth and it surprisingly doesn’t dry all flakey. I honestly wasn’t sure if this dried matte or more smooth when I bought it, but I was very happy to see that it had a matte finish! I really enjoy topping this color with Smashbox Illume Gloss, which unfortunately they do not make anymore but you can buy it from Amazon. I’ve had this gloss forever but just recently started using it a lot more! It’s a great top coat.
This next color is also very new and it is Stila Jolie. Funny story- I tried this color on in the store but I wasn’t 100% sold on. I thought it looked ok but not necessarily my color. Next thing I know Jones had chewed on the box it came in and practically ate the whole the thing. I was like, “Well…looks like this is the color I am getting lol.” I liked the color enough to buy it. BUT then I got outside to the car and saw the color in natural light and I was like “HOLY CRAP”. A little too Barbie pink for my usual style.. but now that I’ve worn it a few times I really like it! I will say the formula is a little thick, but it works great with a gloss on top.
This next color is an all time favorite of mine. This is Kylie Cosmetics- Kristen and it came in her Christmas mini set with 5 other colors. I LOVE THIS WHOLE SET. SERIOUSLY. Use them all the time. This color is my go to matte because it is not too bold but just bold enough. (that makes sense right?). Anyways this is great guys.
These last two colors are my go to nudes. The first one is Milani Matte Innocence, and it actually is not matte so the name is totally misleading. I used to not wear this very much but I’ve really been loving a nude lip lately and this is a really good one now that I am getting a little tan! The other nude color is Too Faced Naked Dolly. I have had this a long time and it was my go to color for most days at the office. This color is a nice, shiny light pink color that I looove.
I would LOVE to hear what lip colors are y’alls favorites!! I am always looking to try new ones! Tell me your favs!
