For today I thought I’d depart from my usual ‘life’ topics and talk solely about lipstick. For the men who read my blog, sorry, you may exit now, unless of course you like lipstick. To go along with this weeks topic of my wonderful blogging group GBE2, I thought I’d write a list of some of my favorites, not only lipstick, but cosmetics in general because I love other products as well (although not as much as lipstick).
I hope the picture above does not scare you, but that is my current lipstick selection from my bathroom. It is ever revolving and I hate throwing them out so some lipsticks may be a year or two old. I also have to say that every few months or so I have a ‘giveaway’ to my girlfriends and mom where they can choose any lipstick they want from my collection.
So, as you can see, my favorites are up front (down at the bottom); I have multiple colors and formulations from YSL, Chanel, Bobbi Brown, and Dior.
Here is a list of my favorite colors:
Bobbi Brown- Great colors, long lasting, moisturizing: Raisin, Burnt Red, and sometimes Papaya
Chanel- Not as moisturizing for me as Bobbi, but great variety of reds: Fatale-red
Dior- Not as long lasting, but moisturizing and feels great on lips: 773 Rouge Podium (a great orangey-pinky-red), 714 Brun (shimmery brown pink), 811 Red (no longer available), Also love Dior Addict Lip Glow which is like a lip balm but brings out the natural pink in your lips.
YSL I love the golden glosses! They add a lot of color for a gloss, are moisturizing, have actual gold flecks, and look AMAZING! #2 is my favorite!!
Here is a list of some of my other ‘must haves’:
Cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer
Smashbox Oil Free primer
Armani Luminous Silk foundation or Bare Minerals Matte Powder
Chanel waterproof eyeliner
Benefit They’re Real mascara, Dior New Look Mascara or L’oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara
Last but not least, my favorite lip balms:
Carmex (in stick form), Eos sweet mint, and Aqauphor (which by the way is great for things such as dry elbows, knees, around the eyes, etc…anything dry, this is a great moisturizer)
Have a great day! Today, I let you pick the lipstick color…what are your faves? I’d love to know!
