My Favorite Things : Lipsticks
This is the second Favorite Things series and so far I have really loved planning this series. Have you guys ever been to a Favorite Things party with your girlfriends? My friends in New York and also here in Arizona do them a lot and they are really fun. It is actually what inspired this series. At the party each girl brings their favorite thing – sometimes there is a theme like bring your favorite beauty item but most of the time it can be anything. At these parties I have seen people bring their favorite kitchen utensil, favorite candle, lipsticks, a book, a travel accessory – pretty much anything and everything.
So today’s Favorite Thing is lipsticks!!! I have had lipsticks on my mind because I just went through and cleaned out my make up drawer and got rid of any lipsticks I am not crazy about or any that I don’t wear. I wanted to share some of my favorites with you guys today. I have been really into nudes and light pinks lately so these are all in that category!
Color : Shy Girl
First up is Shy Girl! This is the perfect nude color for a girl who wants a tiiiny bit of color with your nude. It is the perfect nude shade in my opinion because it still gives some color to your face so you don’t look washed out. This is one I have bought again and again and again. It is also a cream finish which I like with nude colors – I don’t really love matte nudes on me.
Lancôme Lip Gloss
Color : 213
Lancôme actually just randomly gifted me a bunch of their glosses to try and I immediately tried this one on (213) and loved it so much! I have worn it a bunch since then. I love the consistency of it and it is the prettiest light pink. It adds just a tiny bit of pink to your nude lip!
Color : Snob
Not sure if you can tell from the photo but this one is almost gone! I actually don’t think that these pics of me do the color justice – it is really really pretty and it is such a fun color to mix with other lipstick shades. It has some light purple/pink tones that I love.
Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss
Color : Candy Queen
Hands down my favorite gloss ever!!! I have used this since high school – I love the plumping effect and also love that it is just kind of a clear gloss so it doesn’t add color but just makes it look shiny and pretty! Although they do have shades that are more pink and give some color.
Color : Velvet Teddy
This is such a great every day color! It seems to go with any look. It is just darker than most natural lip colors and gives a pretty sheen to your lips. I always get asked what color I am wearing when I wear this one! And it also looks really pretty mixed with Creme d’ nude or any other nude color. It is a fun one to mix.
Color : TuTu
I love this color tutu!! It has orangey tones and is really really creamy! I used to only be into liquid mattes but I am mostly using creamy colors and glosses lately. This one looks really pretty paired with an orange/salmony blush!
Color : Crème D' Nude
This is a classic nude color – I think it is too light for me on its own and I feel too washed out with it by itself but I lovvve to add it on top of a color to tone a color down or to add dimension and kind of highlight and contour my lips (when I have the time to get that into my make up ha).
Laura Mercier Lipstick
Color : Ruthless
This color is a lot like snob but a touch more pink and less purple! It is a really really pretty color especially mixed with a gloss. It is a matte finish but still feels creamy on your lips.
Color : Boss
I have worn this about a billion times on the blog! I love bareMinerals liquid cream mattes!!!! Ah they are so soft and go on so nicely. This color is a color you can wear everyday – like Velvet Teddy it is pretty close to natural lip color so especially if you just add a tiny bit it looks good with a natural no make up – make up look.
Color : Creme Cup
This is another really pretty nude color that has the perfect amount of pink in it! I love this color and compared to Shy Girl this one is more pink where Shy Girl’s tones are maybe more warm?! I don’t know if I am good at describing colors but that is what I would say ha hope that helps!
Mac Lip Liner
Color : Whirl
When I need to fill in my lips I use Whirl most often! It works with so many different colors so I especially always take this one when I am traveling because it is so versatile.
Huda Beauty Lip Liner
Color : Muse
Whenever I want just a tiny bit of color or I want to even my lips out without looking like I am wearing anything on my lips – I use this! I lovvve Huda Beauty liners especially how they just glide on. This color works perfect with nude and light pinks!
Vestige Lipstick Holder
I got this lipstick holder a long time ago and always love how pretty it looks on my vanity or in my bathroom. Such a pretty way to display lipstick.
I don’t have this lipstick holder but I want to order it! I came across it on Amazon and love that it holds sooo many lipsticks!!
Clear Acrylic Lipstick Caps
A bunch of my readers actually told me about these! I was saying how I hate having to open each lipstick to see what color it is and so many people sent me the link for these. I had never even heard of them but ordered the 24 pack and they came in the mail today! I was hoping to have them for this shoot so I could show you guys but didn’t get them in time, so I will show you guys on insta stories today!
These are all the lipsticks I have been wearing lately!! Let me know your favorites or any I need to try in the comments below! Especially plumping glosses you love because I love that tingly feeling ha! Plus I really do feel like they work. Okay have a great day everyone! xo
