I thought it’d be fun to round up some of my favorite lipsticks that I’ve been loving this past year or so. While my lipstick wishlist is never ending, these are ones that I’ve tried and can vouch for.
MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in Color 9 pearly fuchsia (available here and here). This is a long lasting lipstick that is great to wear at night or to add some jazz to your boring workday like I do.
Butter London ‘Lippy Bloody Brilliant’ Lip Crayon in Disco Biscuit (available here and here). I love this lip color, but it is not long lasting. It comes off fast with drinking beverages. It has a nice peppermint smell to it and feels moisturizing upon application to the lips. Just keep in mind that you’ll have to re-apply it throughout the day. I wouldn’t recommend this for a wedding or event where you’ll be doing a lot of eating and drinking.
Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Lip Stain & Shine in Coral Oasis (available here and here). This is perfect for summer and the lip stain makes the color last longer than a normal lip gloss. This is great for everyday lip wear and a go to for me during the summer months.
Here’s a picture of all of them on for a frame of color reference. Starting in the top left and going clockwise is Josie Maran Coconut Water, Nars Lipstick in Schiap, Butter London Lippy in Disco Biscuit, and Makeup Forever in Pearly Fuchsia.
Here is also a Hand Swatch photo in descending order: Butter London, Josie Maran, Makeup Forever, and NARS.
Not pictured above is FRESH Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 (available here and here). This is my favorite everyday lip staple. I use this pretty much every single day. I love the Coral color in the summertime, but also love every single color they have that I’ve tried! It keeps your lips super moist and helps protect them from the sun. Your lips are something that can be easy to forget to shield from the sun, but it’s important to protect them like the rest of your face.
What are you favorite summer lip colors?
