Not going to lie but I am kind of a lipstick noob. I didn’t really wear it until this year (aside from a bad stint in high school when I though dark / black lips were cute on me.)
After experimenting, reading reviews, spending a bunch of cash. I have decided these are my favorites:
LUSH – Lipstick $18.95: Highly pigmented, cute colors and they go out of the way to help you find your perfect shade at the Lush Store. It also has jojoba oil and rose wax to help moisturize your lips.
Stila – Stay All Day lipstick $22: I received a sample of this in my August Birchbox and I just love it. Has staying power and feels weightless. The red shade (Beso) I have is perfect!
MAC- Lipstick $15: A cult classic for a reason. They have so many shades, so you will certainly find yours. The staying power isn’t as good as the two previous liquid lipsticks but I still love it. (especially their reds and pinks).
NYX Matte Lipstick $6: My go-to drugstore lipstick. I love the matte finish and $6 is freaking cheap.
