Not sure what it is really, but I aways get a ton of complements whenever I wear these lip colors. Incidentally, they happen to be some of my personal favorites as well! Ranging from dramatic to natural, and pretty to slightly more edgy, I’d say all of the below are pretty much on constant rotation and are always in my travel bag (I like to bring a variety of shades with me so that I have a few options to choose from for day & night).
Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick in Uh-Huh Honey is one of those little multitaskers you can wear day or night. Super moisturizing, slightly sheer, it has a beautiful shimmery metallic finish that looks particularly striking in the brown-sugar finish. Good on it’s own for day, for night, I sometimes layer it over a matte brown lipstick (Birkin Brown from Charlotte Tilbury is absolutely goals!) for a slightly more dramatic look.
NARS Lip Gloss in Color Me is my newest discovery. Love this very soft and feminine shade of lavender. Though it may look a bit intimidating at first (it’s rather bright shade of lavender), it goes on sheer and creates a very soft look. All the girls in the office tried it and love it just as much as I do. For day, I normally wear it on it’s own (Quick tip: it looks super pretty with bronzed cheeks, This Palette for example gives the most gorgeous natural looking glow). But for night, I go for drama by adding a layer of Dior Addict Lip Maximizer in shade 009, a gorgeous purple holographic gloss with just a touch of purple shimmer.
Finally, a nude matte lip stain I actually love! Lip stains, especially matte ones, can be tricky but L’Oreal’s Lasting Matte Lip Stain in Empower is gorgeous and doesn’t make your lips feel dry at all. Though most of the time I wear it as is, sometimes I like to dab a bit of gold shimmery gloss on the center of my top and bottom lip to create a fuller, more plump effect. At the moment, I am completely obsessed with Multi Use Lip Gloss in Star Babe from Nars. Love the shade but also, love this product because it can be used in a multitude of ways. Personally, I love to wear it as an eyeshadow all over my upper lid. It creates that wet eye lid look, but with just the right amount of sparkle! Basically, the end result is pure magic!
Tom Ford Sheer Lip Color in Sweet Spot is one of my favorite coral shades ever! Corals are uber flattering period, but this shade is just on another level. Soft and pretty, all the girls in the office are obsessed! Though once again, most of the time I wear it on it’s own, sometimes for night, I like to add just a touch of coral gloss on top just to amp up the drama. (P.S. looks absolutely insane paired with a bit of lavender eye shadow, like this one for example)
Probably one of the most popular lip colors I ever wear, whenever I wear Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge x Camila Coelho in Rouge Empire people stop me on the street to ask what I’m wearing. No joke! You may have noticed that I started wearing red only recently, and this is the shade that made me change my mind. Honestly, I’ve heard people say that there is a red for everyone and never really believed it until I tried this one. And let me tell you, this red is for everyone! The most perfect shade of coral red, sometimes, I layer just a bit of Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge x Camila Coelho in Day & Night, a shimmery pinky/nude, to soften the look and to add more dimension.
