We’re supposed to go to the Cincinnati Reds game tonight. But. It’s cold. And rainy. And possibly snowy. I’m definitely a fair-weather fan so we’ll see how long I last. My niece’s third birthday party is tomorrow. I cannot believe she’s (almost) 3! Time certainly flies.
I’ve seen several lipstick posts floating around lately, but I always like to update my picks for the season. I change out my lipstick like I do my clothes: all of my winter clothes (and lipsticks) are pushed to the back of the closet until fall. Bring on the pinks and purples!
Here are my favorites:
NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Pink Lust: If you’ve read for long, you know I’m obsessed with NYX’s Cream Lipstick. It’s matte, lasts forever, and reminds me of a Barbie or bubblegum pink. It’s not subtle – but that’s a good thing!
NYX Cosmetics Round Case Lipstick in Chloe: this iridescent fuchsia shade was my go-to color last year. I love the touch of sparkle! This lipstick is only $3, and while it may not have the lasting power of other, higher-end brands, it works great when used with primer.
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Sangria: I “bit” the bullet and I am in love. The color is rich and it’s super hydrating and long-lasting. This actually may usurp Girl About Town for my favorite pink!
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue in Nude: I have the mini version of this, but it’s sold out on Sephora’s website. I prefer bold shades, but I’ve worn this a few times and actually like it. It provides a lot of hydration which I can always use!
MAC Lipstick in Girl About Town: Becca shared this on her Instagram months ago and I had to have it. I’ve received so many compliments on it, especially when I was wearing it in the dead of winter! Just try to have a bad day when you’re rocking this shade!
A couple of notes about wearing a bold lip:
I always wear MAC’s Prep + Prime Lip product as a base. Always. It adds extra moisture, which is great for those drying matte shades. I also line my lips so my lipstick doesn’t feather. My go-to liners right now are NYX’s Slim Lip Pencil in Pinky and NYX’s Wonder Pencil.
What lipsticks are you wearing this spring? Have a great weekend!
