Lipstick Essentials


For any makeup look, I think it’s the lipstick that completes it. I carry a plethora of lipsticks in my purse because you really never know what color you’re going to be feeling that day! If you’re anything like me, you like to have options. So this post is going to highlight some of the lipsticks that I think everyone should add to their collection.

You have to start off every look with a good lip liner. Trust me, it makes all the difference in the world when applying your lipsticks. I have two favorites that I always keep in my lipstick bag, and the best part is they’re both drugstore products which means they’re cheap!!! For mauve and pinky colored lipsticks, I use the Wet n Wild lip liner in the Bare to Comment shade. For natural lipsticks I use the Nyx Retractable Liner in the shade Nude. Both of this colors go on so smoothly!!


Mac lipsticks are definitely one of my favorites. They have such a wide range of colors and they feel so good on your lips. The picture below is the Kinda Sexy shade. This is mostly a soft pink color that is great if you want to add a pop of color to any outfit!

Another great Mac lipstick shade is Mehr. Seriously, this color is beautiful! It has a really pretty mauve color with a comfortable matte finish. There is something about this color that is irresistible!


Last but not least, Velvet Teddy is my favorite Mac Lipstick. This color is so perfect for any outfit and looks good no mater how many times you have to reapply. It is the perfect combination of mauve and nude, giving me a really natural look anytime I put it on.

Enough of Mac, the NYX Lingerie liquid lip is one of the best drugstore lines out right now. They are so light weight and last all day. The photo above is the shade Ruffle Trim. It’s a beautiful darker, but natural color for my skin tone that has the same compelling results as Velvet Teddy. These liquid lips are seriously matte. The best part is, you can find them at any drugstore near by!!

Can we please talk about this packaging of this Tarte lipstick?!?! Not going to the lie, one the only reasons I picked up this lipstick was because of the packaging. These lipsticks have a really pretty satin finish that is super comfortable. The picture above is the shade Surfs Up, and it has a nice rustic red color on your lips. It’s really pretty shade for the cooler months because it adds warmth to your lips!!

This next Revlon lipstick is another drugstore favorite. These lipsticks have a super comfortable finish and the colors are so pretty. This is the shade Brazilian Tan! It’s a nude color with a comfortable satin wear to it. It’s perfect to throw on if you’re in a hurry!


Anastasia has my favorite line of liquid lips. All the shades are super wearable and feel light weight on your lips. You wont need to the reapply this throughout the day, and the colors goes on so smoothly. This is the shade Stripped, and this is my go to nude color. These lipsticks are so worth the $20!


Hopefully you will add some of these beautiful colors to your lip bag and let me know if you try any of these colors!!!
