My Lips Are Sealed

December 31, 2016

Growing up, I was always addicted (addicted is putting it lightly) with chapstick.  I think I got it from my dad, but it's never been medically confirmed.  I always carried it in my pocket, purse, and even in my SPORTS BRA while I played sports.  It was only within the past 2-3 years that I finally ventured into lipstick, lip gloss and tinted chapstick.  The key for me is a product that has SPF (a major bonus!), leaves my lips moisturized and doesn't dry them out, and stays on for a long time!!


I am a huge fan of MAC.  Pretty much all of my makeup is purchased there.  When I started wearing lipstick on a more regular basis, I started off with MAC Lipglass Viva Glam line.  I think I still have this in my makeup organizer and I like to wear it during the warmer summer months.


These days, I'll carry Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm with a combination of 1-2 lip colors in my bag any time I go out.  However, I did just see that ChapStick recently launched a new line of Total Hydration 3-in-1 that can be found solely at Target.  I'm dying to try this product and I'll let you know how I like it when I do.



Everyday Go To


I forget which style blogger recommended Fresh Sugar Lip, but I'm hooked!  I started off with the Nude color for a slight shimmer and tons of moisturizer on the lip. With SPF 15, I wanted a more vibrant color to spice things up and tried the Tulip color.  AMAZING!  This is the perfect color to throw on and know it will stay on for a while.


Date Night


My boyfriend knows that I always have some color on my lips.  Luckily, he doesn't mind it!  When I want a darker, deeper color... I'll grab MAC Lipstick in Twig. I really can't say enough amazing things about MAC's lipstick.  I swear it never comes off.  Even at night when I'm washing my face, I have to really scrub hard with my face wipes to make sure I get it all off.  I am constantly getting compliments on this color as I feel like it is not too bold, but still a statement.  Some other MAC Lipstick favorite colors are: Up the Amp, Dark Side and Heaux.


Lady in Red


Like I said, I haven't always worn a lip color until recently.  So, pulling off a bold RED lip was a bit nerve-wracking for me.  I think it was my sister's bachelorette party where we had our makeup done for the big night when I first rocked a red lip.  After that, I pulled the trigger and purchased a lipstick of my own for future nights out.  I decided to try something less expensive as I wasn't 100% ready to commit.  I opted for Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color in Very Cherry. For only $8... this was a no brainer.  This is the perfect color that truly radiates your face.  This is another one that stays on perfectly.  This is more on the matte side, so I'll throw a red lip gloss on over it when I want more of a shine look.


What's up next for lipsticks?  A girlfriend of mine swears my NARS Funny Face.  I picked it up at Sephora on New Year's Eve. I have to say... this might be a new front runner for me.
