Bringing you a much requested post today… my go-to lip colors! I’ve said before that I really never ever wore lipstick before recently. I was just too lazy! I don’t like to spend much time on my makeup. And I always felt like I had to reapply it 1,000 times a day, too. But a few years back, I made a resolution to start wearing lipstick more because I found it was a big confidence booster (it’s the small things, you guys!) and haven’t looked back ever since.
I get so many questions about the various bold lip colors I wear in my Instagram + Snapchat posts and a lot of you requested a post dedicated to some of my faves! Ask and you shall receive!!! Here are my current five favorite lip colors…
This is definitely my most worn one! I found Sephora’s lip stain after doing this Lipstick 101 post and it’s my absolute favorite. It doesn’t break the bank and it stays on the best out of all the lip colors I’ve tried. And this shade is such a VIBRANT pink that I’m completely head over heals for it.
I wore a coral-hued Make Up For Ever lipstick for my wedding and loved the color, but after I finally scraped the last bit of it out of the tube, I wanted to find something a bit more affordable. Turns out my fave lip stain comes in a similar shade and is half the price! BAM!
Julep sent us a ton of their Lip Mousses to try awhile back and Samantha and I both fell in love with them! They just feel so good on, have really great staying-power and come in a lot of awesome colors! My most recent fave is the Beso color which is the punchiest orange you ever did see.
I bought this kooky color when I was feeling really zany one day. Being pale, I generally don’t venture into the more purple-y hues but I was like… YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE! And in addition to loving how this feels on, I actually ended up loving the color. It’s a really fun color if you’re not afraid to try something a little different!
Isn’t it like a lifelong quest for everyone to find the perfect red lipstick? When our makeup artist was in the other day she brought me this one and we all agreed it was the perfect red. The best thing about Nyx is it is SO CHEAP, but still great colors + long wear. This one is… wait for it… $5.99! YOWZA!

And there you have it! My current faves! I’m always trying out new ones so maybe I’ll do another edition someday, too, if ya like it! By the way, if any of you are like me and have perpetual dry/chapped lips, a makeup artist introduced me to this sugar lip scrub which I use a few times a week and it helps tremendously. Have any go-to lip colors you want to share with the class!? Tell me, tell me!
