National Lipstick Day: My Top 5

Top 5 Lipsticks

Top 5 Lipsticks


So apparently, today is National Lipstick Day. I don’t know who makes these things up but, I’ll play. I thought, to celebrate, I’d do a quick breakdown of my 5 all time favorite lipsticks…and honorable mention lip product to boot!
From Left to Right:
MAC Freckletone – This was my first MAC Lipstick and it’s been a staple of mine ever since. It’s a Lustre formula so it’s not got sparkle but a great deal of shine. I think it’s a perfect nude for any skin tone. Also, depending on what lip liner you are wearing, it takes on a whole new identity.
Dior Rouge Dior 434 Samarcande Brown – This lipstick holds a special place in my heart because it was my wedding day lipstick. Don’t let the ‘Brown’ in the name fool you, it’s really a gorgeous color. Plus, it stayed ALL NIGHT LONG.
Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake – I love all of the Revlon Lip Butters. They have the most awesome texture and just make your lips look and feel plush. When I’m looking for a great ‘my lips but better’, quick out the door lip product, I always grab for this shade.
Maybelline Vivid in Vivid Rose – If you want your lips to BAM!, you need this lipstick. All the Vivids are SUPER opaque and come in some fab colors. This one is my favorite because it’s a super bright pinky red. I think I’ll wear it today!
MAC Red – I’ve talked about this before. It’s perfect. That’s all
Bonus Item: Rimmel Show Off in Nude Eclipse. I have been on the hunt for the perfect fleshy nude lip that did not make me look dead. This is it. It’s not technically a lipstick but it for sure deserved a mention.

So happy Lipstick Day! Rock a Fierce Lip!

Colors of the Rainbow Tag

So there is a video going around YouTube where all the Beauty Girls list their favorite beauty items in all the colors of the Rainbow. Well, why should I miss out on the fun just because I don’t have a YouTube Channel!? I thought it would be a fun little challenge, so here it goes!

Red

Red – MAC Red Lipstick
This was a no brainer. I had to choose a red lipstick and MAC Red is a long time favorite of mine. It’s the perfect cool toned red.
Orange

Orange – Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
This brush has seriously changed the way I apply foundation. Seriously. The bristles are so soft and densely packed that it gives you the most amazing airbrushed look. I promise. It’s only $9.99 and you won’t regret it.
Yellow

Yellow – Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
This has been my favorite moisturizer since the beginning of my makeup career. My skin used to be super duper dry and this always got the job done. Recently my skin has turned into more normal/combination and I don’t use it everyday but I still keep a bottle on hand for the days that I need a little more moisture.
Green

Green – Simple Makeup Wipes
If you haven’t heard of the Simple line, get thee to a drugstore and check it out. All of their products are just like the name suggests. Simple. They contain no junk fillers and fragrances and are perfect for sensitive skin. I’ve used a lot of makeup wipes in my days and they are the ONLY ones that don’t irritate my eyes even a little bit.
Blue

Blue – Essie Polish in Avenue Maintain
Because of my primary job, I don’t always get to wear nailpolish but when I do, I’m always drawn to blue. This Essie polish is the prettiest, creamy blue and I just adore it.
Indigo

Indigo


Indigo – BH Hollywood Palette
This palette is my new obsession. I’m putting it in the Indigo category because the packaging is indigo and it contains a couple indigo eyeshadows. BH Cosmetics released 3 palettes based on California cities and the Hollywood one quickly became my favorite for it’s bright, fun colors. (I’m actually thinking of doing a series like ‘Nude Week’ where I feature a different look from the palette every day.)
Violet

Violet


Violet – ALL the Violet Eyeshadows
Violet or Purple is my favorite color to wear on the eyes so I knew my choice for violet was going to be an eyeshadow but I simply could not pick just one. Maybe Satellite Dreams by MAC but I don’t want to make all my other purples jealous.

So a random little post but fun nonetheless! You guys try to pick your favorite beauty items in all the colors of the Rainbow. It’s fun and a little more challenging than I thought it would be!

***And YAY for the internet being fixed!!!***
