It’s that time of year!
I wasn’t going to write one of these posts this summer as I’ve tried to cut back on shopping. However, I needed a few things from Ulta last week and had a 20% off coupon plus a buy one, get one 50% off sale on NYX products. They’re my favorite lipsticks and I stocked up!
So I’m sharing my current go-to shades: some of these are new, and some are old friends:
NYX Pin-Up Pout in Bombshell: I’ve talked about this non-stop since purchasing, but, seriously, it’s stunning. It’s a matte lipstick but not drying. And, like the rest of their products, I find it lasts all day.
I promise I take care of my hands.
Hourglass GIRL Lip Stylo in Lover: The shade is described as vibrant red orange, and that’s spot-on! The lipstick is silky, lightweight, and hydrating.
MAC Lady Danger: Another gorgeous orangey-red shade. It’s hard to go wrong with MAC. Also, if you’re a Housewives fan, this is the shade Kelly Dodd normally wears (I know she’s a monster).
MAC Girl About Town: I’ve been wearing this shade for a few years and don’t think it will ever leave my makeup bag! It’s the prettiest shade of bright pink and it never fails to garner lots of compliments.
Bite Beauty in Sangria: When I was at Ulta last week, several of the saleswomen asked what shade of lipstick I was wearing. It was this. I only have two Bite Beauty products but they are phenomenal. They’re super hydrating, long-wearing, and made with organic and antioxidant ingredients.
NYX Velvet Matte in Unicorn Fur: This shade is a walk on the wild side and not for the faint of heart! It’s hot pink with purple undertones – perfect for a date night or pool day spent riding a Pegasus float.
NYX Velvet Matte in Miami Nights: As daring as it sounds. A bright, hot pink shade!
One of the questions I get asked the most is how I get my lipstick to stay on all day. The answer: MAC Prep & Prime Lip. I swear by it. A tube of this lasts about six months, and I wear lipstick daily. It’s worth the price. I’m also a huge fan of NYX lipliners. They’re so cheap and come in tons of colors.
Have you tried any of these shades? What’s your go-to summer lipstick? Share below!
