Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lip by Bare Minerals
I have raved about this lipstick on my instastories for months. I’m really not into liquid lipsticks—I do not like how drying they are on my lips, or how they feel permanently stained. This product is unique in that it adheres to your lips, but you can still rub your lips together and “feel the lipstick”, if that makes sense! I would not call this an incredibly long wear lip color—more like 3-4 hours with eating and drinking. I absolutely love how the darker colors look on my lips—I always get compliments when I wear “Swank” in particular! Another thing I love is the wand. You have to learn how to apply, as you only need minimal product, but you can really line your lips well and emphasize your shape (or even overline if that’s what you like!) My favorite shades: Icon (nude shade), Flawless (step up from everyday pink), and Swank (the perfect wine lip). Buy at Sephora or Ulta for $19.
Art Stick by Bobbi Brown
Want the lasting power of a liner but the size of a lipstick? This will become your new best friend. This product has been around for a while, and it’s one of my favorites to use for brides. This is what I would call a “chunky” lipliner. This can provide me 3-4 hours of wear and look seamless on the lips. When sharpened, you can define your lips (as if you were using a lip liner). If matted down, you will not have as much precision, but regardless it’s a wonderful product. I also love that it comes with a sharpener just for this product! My favorite shades are Rose Brown, and Dusty Pink for perfect every day colors. You can buy it Nordstrom’s for $28.
It is no surprise that MAC would make the list. I have loved MAC’s lip colors for years! I personally like the satin finish the best—it’s creamy and can be long wear if you just let your lips be. My favorite Satin shades include:
Rebel: Bold wine color with punch of raspberry—which really makes your teeth look white!)
Up the Amp: Super fun purple-pink
Snob: Perfect pale, bubble gum pink
Faux: My favorite every day shade—it darkens your lips, and flatters many skin tones
I also like some of the matte finishes for more bold colors—check out Ruby Woo for the perfect holiday red! You can find MAC online at Nordstrom for $17.
There you have it! A compilation of my tried and true favorites! Comment on Instagram to let me know what you think!
