My (Current) Favorite Lipsticks
I’ve kind of been into lipsticks lately. I’m always rushing to get ready and my make-up routine usually leaves a lot to be desired, but once I’ve got the kids in the car I like to throw on some lipstick before pulling out of our driveway to glam up my look a little bit. Something about pink lips or a perfectly nude gloss just makes me feel more girly and put together (even though I’m still a hot mess).
I thought I would share some of my current favorite lipsticks and lip glosses today. I know this is kind of different for a CnC post, but if you like it, let me know! And if you have a favorite lipstick, please do share in the comments blow! 🙂
Snob, by Mac + Dior Addict Lip Maximizer
I think Snob is pretty by itself, but I love adding the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer (I have the 001 pink shade) over top of it for an added shine. I find myself reaching for the Dior Lip Maximizer more than any other lip gloss I own. It has a very very subtle pink hue and it pairs nicely with so many different lipsticks. And funny story about the Snob lipstick…My mom came to visit us a few weeks ago and I was wearing this lipstick and she was like, “Oh my gosh! I love that lipstick! What color is that?” So I told her it was Snob and then the next time she came to visit I noticed her lipstick and I was all, “Omg! That lipstick is so pretty! What is it?!” It was Snob. haha! It’s pretty and people notice it – I’m telling ya!
Candy Yum Yum, by Mac
Staying in the pink family, but definitely amping it up a bit from Snob is Candy Yum Yum. This is definitely a HOT pink, but I think it is so gorgeous for summer. I love wearing it with a bright spring dress or even with jean shorts and white t-shirt for a fun pop of color.
Heat Wave, by Nars
I don’t really have a loud or bold personality, so I tend to steer clear of red lipsticks, but I think this color is the best for when you do want that extra va-voom to your look! I always feel a little sassier when I wear it and it stays on pretty well. I love it for date night.
Blankety, by Mac + Undressed lip gloss, by Anastasia
I keep Blankety in my purse and I use it every single week. It is a great nude lipstick and I love it topped with the Anastasia lipgloss for a little more hyped up look. I think this is a great every day combo, but it also would be really pretty with a dramatic smokey eye for a night out (but seriously, I’m a stay at home mom, so you know I can’t tell you that from experience – this is just what I wear when I go out…you know, to Publix).
#10 (Beige Tribute) by YSL
This is probably my very favorite nude color (And I own quite a few nude lip sticks because it is just what I gravitate towards). I think it is pretty by itself or topped with a lipgloss. It does pair nicely with the Anastasia lipgloss and the Dior lipgloss mentioned above.
Alright, your turn! Favorite lipstick! GO!
