Go-to Lip Lacquers

There is no better way to start a fun filled weekend than with some good ole beauty advice! So that is what I am here to provide you with. Now that I have this handy dandy lipstick display, courtesy of a very special friend, it is easier than ever to find my go-to lip lacquers when it’s time to paint my pout.


Go-to Lipsticks


I firmly believe the best way too apply lipstick is by first moisturizing your lips with some balm. You cannot go wrong with some of Smith’s Rosebud chap-stick.


Urban Decay’s “Sesso” ultra moisturizing lipgloss, included in the Naked on the Run palett. This gloss is great for everyday use as it is very neutral and provides just the right amount of shine.

Bite Beauty’s cream lipstick in “Rosewood” is perfect when you’re not in the mood for bright hues but don’t dare to go bare! Just as the name suggests, it’s pinky brown.


Sephora’s cream lip stain in “Always Red” is a big hit in my eyes. For $13 a pop, when they say stain, they mean it. Lather up with this product before your evening and wake up with colorful lips

Always Red Lip Stain


Hourglass’s lip lacquers are some of the brightest around. You will be noticed when you walk into a room sporting orangey red “Raven.” Refillable cartridges make this product a good investment.


“Candy Yum-Yum” matte lip color by Mac is the perfect mix of girly and flirty. Wear this bright pink to add some flavor to an all black ensemble or a fun party dress.

Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in “Catwalk” is one of those you’ll keep in your purse at all times – just enough color to dress up your look. Read more about it here.


Finally, Mary Kay’s Creme Lipstick in “Downtown Brown” is rich and truly creamy in texture. Great at moisturizing your lips, smear some on for an edgy steamy look.

    […] When you are wearing a top that says, “get your chic on,” you better play the part! So, rather than slipping on a traditional pair of jeans, I went for some black leather patched skinnies – though wax-coated or printed jeans would work too. Black effortlessly dresses up a look, so I paired my ensemble with a pair of patent leather pumps, and a light pink metallic clutch.
