Lipstick Loves

In honor of National Lipstick Day, I wanted to share my favorites. Out of all makeup products, lipsticks are definitely my favorite. In fact, I'm a little obsessed with buying them. They're all just so pretty! Here are my absolute favorites, including my go to liner+color combo! 

L to R: Maybelline Matte in Ravishing Rose; Mac's Up the Amp; Bare Minerals Pop of Passion in Candy Pop; Mac's Saint Germain; Maybelline Power Peony

This was the first product I've ever tried from Bare Minerals and I'm sold! This is a great lipstick for applying on the go throughout the day. I keep it in my purse and apply after lunch. It's got a creamy formula but isn't sheer, which I love! 

I've already talked about how much I love this collection in this post. Power Peony is my favorite out of all of them. Maybelline is my go to drugstore lip color! 

It looks a little scary in pictures, but this is a great shade for the fall. In fact, it's my favorite shade of plum. And nothing beats Mac's formula. They are my absolute favorite lipsticks. 

I love light pink lipsticks even though they don't like me. I have to be very careful about not looking washed out when I wear a light pink. This one is my favorite shade of pale pink. It photographs darker than it wears. 

This is the lipstick I reach for when I don't have a full face on and I just want a little something on my lips. I could do without the stinging though! I don't really see that my lips appear fuller when I wear this, but I don't use it for that so I'm good with it! :)

I can't tell you how many of these I've purchased. This will forever be my all time favorite lip color, hands down. I love, love, love this one! It's the perfect shade of pink and the best formula. I'm scraping the rest out of this one while I wait on a new one to arrive. Love!

Now these YSL lipsticks are in a league of their own. While most of the time I prefer the formula of Mac as opposed to these, when I do want a creamier, shiner finish nothing can beat YSL. I do not like the silver tubes, just the gold ones. I'm not sure the difference in the formula, but those are sheer and I'm not a fan of sheer lipsticks (especially ones as expensive as these!) And can we just talk about the packaging? Beyond gorgeous! The pricing is a bit too much, so I usually request a new shade for birthdays or Christmas. I currently own four and have them sitting prettily on my dresser. :)

This is my favorite. It's in the shade 8. It photographs darker than it is in real life. It's a pretty rose pink in person.

I knew if I were investing in these then I wanted a good red shade. This shade is 11. Red is a hard lipstick color to find for me. I'm not a huge fan of it because red is not my color, but when I do wear it I only wear this kind! 

This one is very similar to Mac's Saint Germain. They are both a light pale pink, but the Mac formula is matte and this one is creamier. This shade is 7.

I got this peach one for Christmas last year. It's shade 13. Again, it photographs darker than in real life. In real life it's a pretty peachy almost nude color. Love!

This is my go to lip combo! I love a good lip liner and Mac has the best! The liner is in the shade "shock value" and I pair it with Maybelline's Ravishing Rose. The two pair extremely well together and I love them! 

I know this is face primer, but I like using it as a lip primer! I got a sample size from a gift size during Christmas and it helps my lipstick go on a lot smoother. 

What's your favorite lipstick? I'd love to hear them! 


  1. Oh my goodness, I need to invest in Up The Amp before Fall gets here! & I think my personal favorite lip product is the Rimmell London lipsticks-specifically the one in As You Wish Victoria!
