Loving lipstick is both fun and irritating. I mean - how are you supposed to commit to just one? I usually have an assortment of anywhere between 3 and a dozen lipsticks in my bag. I know it's obnoxious, but God forbid I am unprepared! Thankfully within the last month or so there have been 3 stand out winners that have yet to be evicted from my purse and are great to have around in a pinch.
1. M.A.C. RETRO MATTE LIPSTICK IN FLAT OUT FABULOUS
Full coverage and as matte as matte can be. I love to keep this one close because it can take an other wise basic makeup and give it a POP! Mega long wearing and can also be used as a stain when applied lightly. It's like a velvet electric raspberry.
2. NYX BUTTER GLOSS IN MERENGUE
These butter glosses from NYX are not to be overlooked. They remind me a lot of the NARS Larger Than Life Lip Glosses for a fraction of the price. The color pay off is strong and the texture is well, buttery. They wear nicely and this powdery pink color can stand alone or be a nice alternative to your basic nude. It always looks good!
3. MAYBELLINE COLOR SENSATIONAL #910
This lipstick is everything you could want in a nude. Buildable color, creamy & hydrating texture, and some very pretty packaging. This color is most similar to Creme d'Nude by Mac. If you want more of my feelings on this guy see here and here
