Getting Lippy | My Favorite Lipsticks

For the last few years I've been veering away from standard lip glosses and heading in more of the lipstick direction. The biggest pain is having my hair fly into my mouth and then cover my face with my lip gloss...tell me that happens to you all when it's windy! 

I have a TON of lipsticks as was evidenced by my make-up organization post, but these few are my absolute favorites that I wear all the time! I find that it's really hard to get a sense of what they look like in the tube without seeing how they look on, so I thought it would be fun to show how they look with my coloring!
 
You'll also notice I clearly favor a side...
Urban Decay//Revolution Lipstick in Pale Pink. The best way to describe the feeling of this lipstick is like butter! I love how my lips feel right after I apply it! 


Sephora Collection Color Lip Last (08 Dusty Pink) - I wore this on my wedding day and man did it stay put!! It dries matte which I love, but I like to put on my chapstick before using this color to give it a little more movement instead of being flakey, which matte lipsticks tend to do! 


MAC Lipstick (Snob) - I have loved this color for I don't even know how long! I'm onto my second tube and I like wearing it alone or mixing it with other darker colors like my Sephora Lip Last to give me an even richer color. 


Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil (Pomegranate) - This is easily my favorite red lipstick ever!! I instantly feel chic when I swipe this color on. Not only does it smell and taste good, but it doesn't dry out my lips even though it does have a matte effect! The next color I'm picking up is Peachy Pink

Too Faced Melted Liquified Lipstick (Nude Sand) - It goes on like a lip gloss but dries like a lip stick! All the colors in this collection are extremely pigmented, so you've been warned!! This is probably my second most worn lipstick daily just because it matches with everything!! 


Milani (60 Matte Innocence) - I picked this up a few weeks ago and have been reaching for it more often than not. It's very light and is build-able or really nice paired with another color. I do a few coats and I'm good to go for work! I really like the foundation of this lipstick and will probably go back for a pinkier shade soon! I picked mine up at CVS, but have also seen the brand at Wallgreens and their under $8 price point is pretty hard to beat! 

The lip glosses that I do wear are NYX butter glosses and I have them in a few colors! If I'm running an errand or to the gym I like to swipe these on because there isn't much chance for my hair to get caught in them! 

Are you more of a lipstick or lip gloss fan? Do you have a color family that you like to stay in?

  2. Those pinks look really good on you! I'm trying to learn how to do lipstick and clearly, you've got the look down!

  3. I have been on the hunt for a good pink and the Mac snob may be it!!! I'm in love with NYX glosses and probably wear them everyday at some point. Great post!!

  4. Those bite lip crayons are my favorite! I tend to opt for the more mauvey pink during the week but I love a little pop of red once casual Friday rolls around!

  5. You look great in all of them, girl! But, I'm a sucker for a good red lip, you are rocking it!

  6. Im the same way! I used to live in lipgloss but now I mainly wear lipstick when I wear anything. Getting your hair in your lipgloss was always the worst. And then itd stick to your face, ugh. You look amazing in all of these colors! Love the pale pinks with your skin tone!

  7. Look how cute you are!! I've been hopping off the lipgloss train in favor of lipsticks lately too! I used to hate them and now I can't get enough.

  8. I love the Pomegranate on you!! Looks great! I wish I was better about putting color on my lips!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love this and definitely agree it helps to see them on to get a true sense of the color. I looove that red- very striking on you! My go to red is Stila Besos- it goes on like a gloss but dries matte.

    p.s. - I totally have a "side" for pictures too! haha

  10. A good lipstick TOTALLY perks me up, girl- I feel you. Love your picks- I'm a huuuuge fan of the Too Faced Melteds; they're gorgeous!

  11. I am more of a gloss person but when I wear lipstick I tend to favor browns or berry/purples. I like the Too Faced color on you, very pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I've been leaning more towards lipsticks rather than glosses lately, but you know how much I love my YSL lip stain! I recently tried Clarins' lip perfecter and it's become an instant favorite.

    Love that two faced color!!

  13. You pick such gorgeous colors! I think I need Snob right now! I love how you tried them on because it really does let you see what they look like!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Love all of these on you! You can really pull off all those shades with your skin tone. I have to be really careful with reds and dark shades since I'm fair skinned. I think the dusty pink or snob might be my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  15. you're too cute! i should totally do a post like this too. man bloggers are such copy-cats haha. but seriously every shade looks great on you! no shocker there! :)

  18. Love that you modeled all the lipstick shades for us! That is extremely helpful. I think Milani lipsticks are fantastic products for the price, and anything from Bite Beauty is a winner. I always forget to try out the Sephora collection products - that lip color is beautiful on you!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I like the Two Faced Nude Sand best! I really like how you paired pic of you in the product next to the product. Have a great day!

  21. Hair flying into your face haha. It's so annoying when that happens!! Anyway!! The red looks great on you, especially with your dark hair. Those are all pretty colors and I'll have to try one them some time. The NARS Audacious lipstick is my new favorite along with the NYX creamy round lipsticks. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is such an amazing post, except now I want all of these shades :) I've been looking at the melted lipsticks recently & the shade you have looks like such a good nude.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh man. Nude lipsticks look amazing on you!

    ReplyDelete
  24. love all the soft pinks/nudes. but that red looks great too! i used to never wear lipstick until recently and now i want all the colors haha

    ReplyDelete
  25. These are all so pretty and would look great on a lot of skin tones. Thanks for the recs, I'm starting to get more into lipsticks too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I just recently found Bite and they really are incredible!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love this post, girl!! And I love that Urban Decay color on you. I need to try more lipsticks out, but you're right it's so hard to tell if you're going to like the color/formula that I end up not liking most of the ones I buy and wasting money! I'm definitely more of a lipstick girl than a gloss too. I will be trying out some of these! xo

    ReplyDelete
  28. Pink is your signature color but then again you can rock some red, lady!

    ReplyDelete
  29. If I seriously laid out every single lip gloss, stick, stain etc I could probably pay a months rent with what I've spent ;-) It's just so hard so many pretty colors! I love that red bite on you!!! YSL didn't make the cut? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. These are all gorgeous! I love the Melted and the Milani!! And that red is stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  31. you already know i love the milani ones--the new matte ones (on the blog tomorrow) are new faves of mine.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I rarely wear lipstick, but I LOVE my milani nude creme. i will have to check out that matte innocence, it looks gorgeous on you! and i'm such a cheapo, i love how they are so cheap! i like bold colours sometimes, but really prefer the muted colours for work. i normally wear lip gloss, but i have a nasty habit of eating it, basically and lipstick stays on for so much longer, so i am trying to transition ;) the red looks amazing on you!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ugh, yes! I hate that about lip gloss! And my husband hates kissing when I'm wearing lip gloss because it's so sticky.... but I am too chicken to try lip stick! I need help with my make up, ha ha!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm a BIG fan of lipstick. Gloss to me is a bit... Teenager-ish? I don't know, it's sticky and that's gross. But lipstick can make you look put together in a second. In fact, lipstick and mascara is about all I wear these days :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love that Sephora dusty pink! Possesonista just posted something about all the lipsticks The Bachelor girls wore during the show. It looked like MAC was the front-running brand.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love this post! I'm loving all of the pale pink shades! I usually don't wear that much pale pink but I love it on you! I definitely want to try that Sephora lip last!

  38. That MAC color is perfect for Spring/Summer! You look beautiful!

  39. Love all the light pinks and natural shades. I need to try some of these out- I rarely wind up wearing anything more than a clear gloss, and you just pointed out my number 1 problem with it!

  40. I love wearing lipstick but it haste to be neutral for me… Chelsea @ thewilliamsjourney1.blogspot.com

  41. I hate wearing sticky lip glosses for that very reason. Each of these shades looks so lovely on you! I need to make a run to Sephora asap! I want that pretty dusty pink shade.

  42. Haha I can SO relate to the perils of the wind when it comes to lip glosses...us long-haired gals have suffered with that for far too long!

  43. I have read about that Mac Snob color on like a million blogs. It is about time I try it!! Love all of these looks :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love all of these lip colors. I think the Mac shade is my favorite. I need to add a few of these to my beauty routine.

  45. My husband hates lipstick so I haven't wore it in FOREVER... so when I go to even TRY it, it looks funny on me now.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love the look of the Melted one, adding that to my 'to try' list! Also obsessed with the Butter glosses - you definitely can't beat the price!

    ReplyDelete
  47. That is the one thing i hate about lipgloss too and I don't like the super sticky ones. I really like the Mac color on you and I've been meaning to try out the UD lipsticks.

  48. These are all gorgeous on you! I love that red!

  49. love the pop of red! looks fabulous--but you can rock them all B!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Lipstick just takes everything to the next level. I love going out with an allllmost bare face and a pop of bright red or pink or magenta lips. Those all look fab on you! And I looove Nyx butter glosses to just toss on or layer over a lipstick. They're so smooth and pigmented and lovely! Other than that though, I'm a lipstick and lip stain kinda gal :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I have always been the standard lip gloss girl, but I think this weekend I am going to try some matted lipstick! I have loved the look of the matted kind!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Really pretty. I love the Too Faced one! I'm a huge Snob fan, also on my second tube.

    My favorite utility everyday lipstick is MAC Twig.

    I just got Anastasia Liquid Lip in Lovely. I adore it.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Those Urban Decay lipsticks are gold!!!! I love the color Naked. Such a pretty nude. Snob is also another one of my favorites. It goes great with MAC Oyster Girl lipglass.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I am so lipstick over lip gloss! I think I hardly even have any lip glosses anymore and the only ones I have are the nyx butter gloss – love them!! I love that pink Sephora one – I’m going to look for that! YSL lipsticks are my fave!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oooo this is a great one to pin, I'm always at the lipstick counter like what was the color again?! Love MACs shades!

  62. I love Nude Sand too! Pomegranate is gorg on you!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I do both but I also have the hair in lipgloss problem! I have a problem with buying nude lipsticks... I must have 10 at least. Haven't tried the UD but I love anything they make so... NYX Butter gloss in Fortune Cookie is my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  64. All of these colors look fabulous on you!!!! And I tend to reach for similar colors to you so this helps me out a lot! I am more so a lip gloss girl...but I have been trying to force myself to be a lipstick girl too! I am totally putting some of these on my list! I have heard great things about Milani but never seen them before. I need to pay better attention! I think Snob is something I certainly need!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'm such a chicken when it comes to lip color - I find one or two things I like and I just stick to those because I think they look best (but how would I know? lol). Seeing all these different shades looking so good on you have me itching to try some more!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I definitely go between both, but I love YSL shimmer lipgloss and their lipsticks! I generally go for pinks, but sometimes I'll sport red if I'm feeling brave!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Love love love this post. I have been looking for something like Snob and Dusty Pink so I'm going to try both. I feel like it's such a perfect color for spring. Also, I love Milani! I was on my way to an interview one day and forgot to put on lipstick. I ran to DR and picked a nude/pinkish Milani and it's quickly becoming one of my go to ones! Great formula.

  68. I love lipstick, but my favorite will always be Clinique Sweet Honey. I swear it flatters everyone. Once you apply it just makes you feel so polished and put together. You look so pretty with a red lip and I really like the last pale pink at the bottom. I did finally pick up a couple NYX butter glosses and I really like the strawberry parfait color. xo

    ReplyDelete
  69. I am totally with you on this one. I've pretty much completely traded in my glosses for lipstick and the matte lip pens from Nars. Those have become my go to when I am in a hurry and don't have a mirror to make sure my lipstick isn't all over my face. xo, Amanda

  70. Lipstick is so foreign to me. I am more of a tinted chapstick girl, but I do like a pale pink or red lip.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Mascara and lip products are my biggest makeup weaknesses! These all look AMAZING on you. I love that you actually showed them on your lips. I love when people do swatches but it looks different on your arm, etc. than it does on your actual lips... you can tell the pigmentation more this way!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I might be a snob because most of my fave lipsticks are MAC lol I do have some Milani colours that I love and I have my eye on some lip stains but my fave is always MAC!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I never venture into the lipstick area because I've never found one that I like! And I rarely wear lip gloss because I hate when my hair gets into it. Therefore, I'm pretty boring and wear nothing. :( Honestly, all of these colors look perfect on you! :)
