Hello folks! I have been obsessed with colorful eye looks for the past month or so. This called for more toned down lipstick shades which were either close to my lip color or slightly muted in tone. I have been constantly reaching for four lipsticks from my collection a bit more than the others lately!
The Maybelline mattes have an awesome formula for a drug store lipstick! They are really comfortable on the lips and glide on real smooth. I use 2 shades from the line; Touch of Spice and Lust for Blush. Touch of Spice is my favorite of the 2. I can put this on with any eye look, or for any occasion. It is my favorite my lips but better shade! Lust for Blush can look a bit weird on my skin tone especially with a tan. But I like to use this in conjunction with more brown based lipsticks or brown based glosses. The balance of white, pink and brown pigments then get balanced 🙂
Similar to Lust for Blush is the Urban Decay Comfort matte in Backtalk. The color is a bit more mauve and has more of a white base compared to Lust for Blush. I feel they are very close dupes though! I like to use this mixed with other lipsticks..it always gives surprising results!!
Last but not the least, I love my Milani lipstick in Plumrose. This is an old love of mine that remained hidden for a while and I am so glad to have this back on my daily makeup stand. The shade is beautiful..it is a true deep rosey pink that will suit a wide range of skintones. The only thing I don’t like about this guy is the watermelon scent.
What are your favorite lipsticks this summer?
Until next time, ciao!!!
