Happy Friday Everyone and welcome to the first ever Friday Favorites!
I’m writing this post ahead of time and scheduling it, so if you leave me a comment and I don’t get back to you right away I apologize.
I will be back Monday the 25th and will be answering all emails and comments then.
I’ll be honest with you, lip products have never been my favorite. I mean, I’ve never had anything against them but when I was makeup shopping, I never went for the lipstick. Maybe it’s because I’m older now but I’ve really enjoyed wearing lipstick for the past few years. So I decided to pick out a few that I love and know I’ll be using for Fall and share them with you!
I want to talk about the Sephora Lip Liner To Go in the color (03) Classic Red first since it’s the only lip liner. I absolutely love love love this color. The formula is so creamy and goes on so nice. I will definitely be adding more lipliners to my collection this season.
Next up, NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in the shade Cruella. This is close to a lip liner, in my opinion, just way bigger and less precise. This color is beautiful. It is a dark matte red, that lasts and lasts. I highly recommend this one if you love matte shades like me!
The lipstick I really want to talk about next is the Rimmel Provcalips in the shade (750) heartbreaker. This shade is more brown than red and comes in a 2 step system. This lipstick is very long wearing -the package claims 16hrs- I’ve never tried keeping it on 16hrs but it does last all day. Step 2 does make the lipstick last longer and gives it a beautiful shine, but I have also worn the lipstick by itself and really liked it. Plus the fact that it’s under $10 makes it a steal in my book. (There are also more shades to choose from.)
As you can see, there is sort of a pattern here. Red. And this one is no different. bareMinerals Matte Liquid Lipcolor in the shade VIP. I purchased this item very recently with my points in-store one day at Sephora and I am so glad I did. These are stunning liquid lipstick. They last forever, they don’t streak at all and when you reapply them they don’t get clumpy or thick. I will definitely be picking up a new share or two very soon!
Another sample product (although I purchased this in a set.) And it’s another goodie. This shade is the Tarte Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint in the shade Berry. This is by far my favorite shade and when I run out I will absolutely repurchase it. This is the closest I have ever gotten to purple in lip color and I loooove it! It is very glossy when you first apply it but you can smudge it out with your finger a little and matte it down. Either way, the product is beautiful and it lasts quite a long time.
Last is the Wet n Wild lipstick in the shade Dark Wine. This color is last for one reason only, and that is because it only lasts about an hour or so. It doesn’t claim to be long wearing, and I’m not saying it isn’t a good product because well… look where we are, I just wanted to put that out there for all of you long wear lovers. But I have to say, this color is so stunning especially when the weather is colder.
I would love to know what are your favorite lip colors? Do you go darker in the Fall or is that just me?
Thanks for reading!
