I’m a low maintenance girl. I rarely wear a full face of makeup. But in the last year I’ve started adding lipstick to my daily routine. At first it was for special occasions, then fun weekends, and now I’ve built to having 4 colors that I rotate between depending on the situation.
Back in December last year I was gifted Clique’s Chubby Stick. The “chunky cherry” color was light, the balm wasn’t sticky, and I didn’t have to worry about going outside the lines of my lips and looking sloppy. (I’ve also used the “oversized orange” and love that for summer looks!)
In February I was at the State Dance tournament and wanted to go a little more bold. I used a lipstick that I got as a bridal shower favor. The brand is LA Colors and the color is Cherry Red, unfortunately I can’t find a good link for it online. I like how it lasts, but the color is pretty extreme. I also wore it during my Blend trip to Des Moines. When my favorite lipstick/chapstick went missing.
In May I discovered Burt’s Bee’s Rhubarb Lip Shimmer and it is hands down my favorite! It has the tingly feeling you get from Burts Bees chapstick, with a nice color that compliments without feeling over the top.
My newest Lipstick is from Lancome Rouge in Love, color: Midnight Crush. The 6 hour wear was perfect while being a personal attendant. The color is a darker pink, which was perfect for the fall weather.
Do you save lipstick for special occasion? Or have you been wearing it all along? If so, share your favorite brand/color!
