5 favorite everyday lipsticks
A super matte-ifying setting powder
Lipstick is one of the cosmetics that I tend to have the most fun with. I love wearing it and love trying new brands and colors. Most often, though, I stick to my usual everyday lip color which is often a soft, sheer pink. Depending on my outfit or the rest of my makeup, I may choose a very sheer or very opaque finish, but generally these are the 5 lipsticks that get the most use from me!
It’s always helpful to see them actually applied so I took a few quick photos of each shade to demonstrate the color and finish! First up, Lipstick Queen Frog Prince.
This is the brightest pink but also the most sheer in finish. It doesn’t feel like there is anything on my lips!
Next is Fresh Lip Treatment in Rose, a longtime favorite that I’ve repurchased more times than I can count.
The color is a deeper pink but still very sheer and goes on like a dream. If you like lip color, but don’t like the feel of a heavy lipstick, you will LOVE this formula.
A lipstick that I’ve worn more in the last 3-4 months than any other color is Urban Decay Morning After. It’s the perfect cool toned pink!
This is the coolest, in temperature, of the bunch and the easiest to wear. I love this shade so much!
A lip gloss that I’ve been loving since receiving a sample is the Bare Minerals Gen Nude Buttercream Lip Gloss in Infamous.
This is quite opaque and is very long-wearing. I love the color in that it’s a pinky nude without being chalky or too brown.
Finally, my last favorite is the NARS velvet matte lip pencil in Intriguing.
This is the only real matte shade of the bunch and it wears like a dream. It feels light on the lips, and if you don’t like the sometimes dry feeling of long-wear lip pencils, you can top it with some lip balm or gloss. In fact, I love topping this with the Bare Minerals Gen Nude Buttercream Lip Gloss. I’ll apply it right to the center of my lips and then rub it around to blend it in with my finger. Works like a charm and lasts forever.
