Lipstick List

22 Mar

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!

    I am a browns girl. I am fond of the Revlon Toasted Almond, very creamy and delicious feeling, not very long lasting. I also like the new stains with carmex over top for silky finish. Summer I wear light almost nude browns and winter the deeper sometimes even burgandy browns, like the raisin colors. Love Mary Kay’s mascara…perfection.
    Now stop primping and get outdoors! LOL ♥

    Incredible! On behalf of the lipstick industry, thank you for keeping them alive! I don’t feel nearly as guilty anymore for neglecting them. 😀

      Absolutely don’t feel guilty about neglecting the lipstick industry, I believe I alone can keep them afloat!

    I just LOVE this list… Back in the day I would only wear Holiday Red by Christian Dior, since I have expanded, but oh, how I loved that shade of red. Chanel, does have some brilliant reds.

      Glad you liked it! I LOVE Christian Dior, it’s my current fave!

      Hi Daphne, You probably don’t need lipstick because maybe your lips have a lot of color already. If you ever want a little color, since you like Burt’s Bees, Red Dahlia tinted lip balm by Burt’s Bees would be a great choice!

    I’ve never found a red that I like on me. On other people, yes. On me, not so much. I tend to use tinted balms for everyday. I like the Burt’s Bees ones and Cover Girl Natureluxe gloss in Pinot is a nice cheapie.

      Hi Beth! I also like the Natureluxe ones also! Tarte makes some beautiful tinted balms with alot of color too!
