0194 B- Sephora                                                  Red Lizard-NARS

Lipstick is one of my very favorite ways to dress up an outfit, I must confess. Wearing jeans and an old tee? Throw on some lipstick and you'll feel like a million bucks. That my friend is a promise. Anyways, I wanted to give you guys the list of my very favorite colors that I am severely in love with. Here are the deets.For a bright red lip- True Red from Studio Gear. It lasts for.ev.er no joke, I apply it once in the morning and I'm good for the whole day, and it's also really affordable. I'm telling you guys, this one is my go to for everything. Another bright red I love is Red Lizard from Nars. It's a bit more pricy but is a bit of a deeper red for an even bolder look. When I'm wearing a red lip I always make sure to use a liner or else I feel like my lips resemble more of a birthday party clown. The liner I use for both of these reds is a Sangria from Sephora's brand of lip liners. For an orange lip like the first picture I use Punch Drunk from Urban Decay. I especially love this one because it works as both a lip stick and a liner so you don't even need to worry about finding a liner to match it.  For a deep berry lip my top pick is Burlesque from Studio Gear. And for a playful pink I wear  0194B from Sephora. I hope that helps you guys in picking out your own lipsticks! A word to the wise, give the red at least four tries before you give up on it. It takes a bit of getting used to but I promise, you will fall in love. Questions? Shoot me an e-mail!

  9. You are so right about perseverance! I am still not sure about my red lipstick, but it's Chanel and it was a gift from a lady who knows a lot about make-up, and about me, so I just have faith that she made the right choice and wear it anyway! Any day now I'm going to realise that I cant live without it :)
