You might have noticed that I’m on a pretty big red lipstick kick over here. Today I thought it would be fun to share my absolute favorites with you.
1. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square is one of my all time favorites. I rarely use beauty products until the end and I’ve bought this three times now, which says a lot. It’s a great classic red and wears very well. Sometimes I wear it under gloss or use it as a liner… this is my MVP.
2. NARS Lipstick in Heat Wave is what I wear when I’m feeling saucy. I’ve been wearing it for years now but only recently started applying it straight from the tube. NARS makes such amazing lipsticks… the pigments are the best and they stay on forever. I liken this to Prozac. Put some on and you’ll feel happier… I promise.
3. Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Door Red took me by surprise. A sample of it landed on my desk and I put it on, only to become addicted. It’s a great classic, tomato red and stays on for a long time. I also love the gold packaging – feels sophisticated and elegant.
4. Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Valentina is the perfect glossy orange/red. I love how hydrating + creamy it is, and it smells really incredible (kind of like a creamsicle) too. Every time I wear this I get asked about it.
