I just found out that it’s National Lipstick Day! In honour of this obscure non-holiday I’ve decided to review a few of the latest lip colours I’ve been wearing. I’m really not a nude lip sort of girl so here are some brights that I love.
The first deep pink matte lip is by Canadian cosmetics company Lise Watier. This is Baiser Velours Velvet Liquid lipstick in Passion Kiss lined by their waterproof lip crayon in Fuchsia. I adore this sumptuous colour! I did find that if applied too liberally the colour tends to wander. I remedied this by scraping the applicator off on the bottle as much as possible before putting on. This is richly pigmented so very little is needed.
This next colour received rave reviews when I showed it on Instagram earlier this year and every time I’ve worn it, all summer.
I had been on the hunt for a proper purple lip colour for awhile and finally found it in Too Faced Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Violet. (Shown alone on the right side of the photo, above.) However, I wanted to kick it to a deeper, true purple so I lined the lip first with Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in purple Stiletto. (Shown on the left, above.) This Liquid, matte colour really stays put! I am very impressed and may need to buy every shade they make!
Lastly, it is no secret how much I love red lips! I call it my neutral. I ran into Sephora, on a recent trip Las Vegas, because I forgot hairspray. What a pleasant surprise when the clerk reminded me that I had not yet picked up my birthday month gift! How could I let that slip my mind? In it I received two Velvet Matte Lip Pencils by Nars and I was instantly in love with this shade called Cruella.
Happy Lipstick Day! Find yourself a bright shade you haven’t tried before!
