Finding the perfect shade of lipstick can be the key to pulling together any look. I love a good, strong shade to help complete my look- and I’m very picky.
I’ve never been a fan of bright bold colors like purple or orange. I like to stick with classic shades- nudes, reds, pinks, etc. But even then, it’s hard for me to find colors that complement my skin tone. So when I find one that works, I will literally use every inch of product and buy in bulk. These are my current faves (from the bottom swatch up!).
Honestly, this is my ultimate go-to. I found this shade purely by accident once while perusing the lipstick area of MAC and fell in love. 90% of the time, this is my everyday lip color. It’s a nude that doesn’t wash me out or make me look too frosty.
Kate Moss for Rimmel (#107)
This shade is a great one for the fall or going out at night. It’s a deeper red that really complements my complexion and gives me a killer confidence boost.
Kat Von D (Lolita)
My mom and sister introduced me to this product! I love that it’s a long-lasting, non-drying gloss. It’s almost like a glossy version of “Persistence.” It’s a great nude option when I want to glam up my look a bit more than just a matte lip.
Kylie Cosmetics (Leo)
I cannot say enough good things about this!! I tried the Kylie lip kits early this summer somewhat skeptically- and BOY was I more than pleasantly surprised. I have one of the kits, a gloss and then the mini collection. I wanted the mini’s so that I could test out all the colors and I’m in love. Leo is a fun, bold maroon color that goes with everything. But even more than that- out of all the lip products I have used, this one can withstand literally every and anything without any reapplication.
Kate Moss (#111)
Every girl needs a perfect bright, cherry red in her lipstick arsenal, and this is it for me. This shade is bright and fun- perfect for spring/summer looks!
