Hello, my name is Cathy and I am a lipstick addict
It’s been about 2 weeks since my last lipstick binge. I’m confident I can stay on the straight and narrow, but then I get on Pinterest and see some new colors that I NEEEEEEEEED!!
*Heads nodding in agreement*
If there were a Lipstick Anonymous group, that’s pretty much how my check-in would go. Logically, I know I have enough colors, but there’s always something that catches my eye and I need it for my collection. I know, I have problems.
Most recently, Pinerest has been my downfall. I’ve gotten really into pinning beauty stuff, and I’ve gotten sooooooo much lipstick inspo…… I had to try them all! Here’s what I’ve ended up with so far. (I hope y’all enjoy my mirror selfies, because I am totally obsessed with the lighting!)
This is one that I found on Pinterest and absolutely loved the color. I’ve been super into Ulta lately because they have designer and drugstore brands in one store. I think I’ll need to get a lipstick brush to apply this one because the shape is a little weird and the color is too intense to mess up. But I do really like the color, and it goes well with my general “natural makeup and bold lips” look.
There are really no words for how amazing this lip cream feels! It’s not sticky like lip gloss, but it’s not drying like a regular matte lip color. Also, it smells like cake batter and stays put FOREVER. I really can’t say enough great things about this product and color. I will definitely be getting a few more shades. Because, you know, I’m short on lip colors…..
This was a total impulse choice, I can’t lie. I loved the NYX stuff so much, I figured I’d try one other kind. When I first put it on, I was worried that the color was a little too dark and intense. But after blotting, I really loved it. It is very dark and intense, and I think I would benefit from a good liner for it, but I’m super happy with the color!
A note on matte colors
I’ve been wearing more and more matte colors lately, and while I love the look, it can definitely wreak havoc on my lips. I use Vaseline Lip Therapy Advanced Healing at night and on days I don’t wear makeup to keep my lips from getting dry and cracked. If you plan on wearing matte and highly pigmented colors, keep in mind that your lips will need LOTS of TLC to stay healthy and looking their best!
