I am all for bold lipsticks and may or may not have more shades of red than I need. With that being said, one can imagine how excited I was when Mac first announced their holiday collection with sparkly packaging. Once I tried on their amazing matte red lippie with tiny specs of glitter, I had to have it. Let me just add that the glitter is by no means tacky big ol’ pieces, they’re really tiny pieces of shimmer :) This is absolutely my new favorite red lipstick and it is limited edition so I advise you to get yourself a tube NOW! Once they’re gone they’re gone!

I’m back with another Lipstick list for y’all! I usually do one for Spring/Summer and one for Fall/Winter. A color that I do wear year round is nude so YES you will recognize my nude lip choice. From berries to fuchsias to reds, these colors will complete all of your Fall looks flawlessly! Let’s get to it shall we?
Every lipstick rotation should include a nude.
NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee.
Red- also known as “instaglam”
Rimmel London in Diva red.
Berry- Gorgeous berry hues do work on everyone.
MAC in Rebel (my fav)
Fuchsia- I wear fuchsia year round as I do with my nude.
MAC in Girl about town.
Grape-yes grape- just try it!
Revlon Colorburst in Shameless.
I love makeup and a great bargain just as much as the next girl. So it should be no surprise that I’ve been head over heels for NYX for a couple of years now! NYX has great formulas and even better prices. I have many NYX products, but have a trio that I rarely stray away from. Matte bronzer, the curve eyeliner and butter gloss lip color. These products are all under $15 and are amazing!!!!!!!
The Curve Eyeliner: This felt tip liner is so precise and you can choose a thick or thin application depending on how you hold the product- really cool for a shaky handed girl like myself.
Butter Gloss: This formula is amazingly smooth- so similar to the much higher priced NARS lip gloss that I haven’t purchased since discovering butter gloss.
Matte Bronzer: I am a big fan of highlight and contouring and prefer matte bronzer. This is NOT orangey like many bronzers can be and it goes on perfectly!
Today is National Lipstick Day!!!!! Woooohooooo! A day to celebrate lipstick and all its glory! If you’re a lipstick loving girly girl Bravo to you, but I’m writing this post to encourage the NON lipstick wearing segment of the population to go out and BUY A LIPSTICK, even if it’s a nude! Go on! Treat yourself- if you’re feeling frisky buy a peach, red or pink! Do it C’mon! You can always count on lipstick to brighten up your entire look instantly.
If you follow me on Instagram, you”l see that I wore one of my favorite pinks by Mac called Girl about town. It’s pretty much the only pink I wear year round! What lipstick will you wear today?
