Happy National Lipstick Day!

Why the heck isn’t this a federal holiday? I think we all could get jiggy with a day dedicated to lipstick! I’ve been seeing the most beautiful lipstick pictures all day so I thought I’d join in on the fun too. I was thinking of sharing a lipstick shaped cake with you guys but I thought it might be a little easier (and less messy) to just share some of my current fave lipsticks instead. Check it out!

Milani Fuchsia Color Statement Lip Liner Review

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Milani and me sort of have a thing going on. Sure, there’s been some mistakes here and there but what we have is special. And it’s only getting stronger! I’ve been all over the lippies, blush and polish but haven’t paid much attention to the lip liners. I have no idea why! If the rest of the gang is as good as the Fuchsia Color Statement Lip Liner it’s so on!

When you find a good lipstick formula it’s kind of easy to go a little overboard. Who doesn’t want a million awesome lipsticks? I know I do! When Wet n Wild released the new summer Fergie Centerstage collection I went crazy over the limited edition lipsticks. They were just so bright and oh so creamy! I enjoyed them so much I picked up a handful more. Take a look!

A good foundation can really transform the way your skin looks. That’s why it’s so important to choose the best formula for your skin type! My skin is more on the dry side with very little discoloration and blemishes so I prefer a lightweight yet hydrating formula. I’ve tried a few different foundations but I always end up coming back to my beloved Revlon Nearly Naked. It’s the bomb!

I’m such a MAC girl! I don’t think I could ever get tired of MAC but it’s still nice to venture out from time to time. I’ve been exploring a few new brands this year and you know what? A lot of them are pretty on par with MAC (or even better) and sometimes at a fraction of the cost! Take the Covergirl Bombshell Lip Perfection Lipstick for instance. It’s creamy, pigmented and long lasting all for under $10!

Milani Coral Crush Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss Review

Remember those lip glosses with the ball applicator? I used to be obsessed with them! They were super shiny, thick and sticky but I loved slathering them all over my lips when I was a little girl. Those were the days! I’ve grown into quite the lipstick addict but sometimes I like to get back to my girlish gloss days. There’s just something about a glossy pout that I can’t let go!
