So I am a bit obsessed with lipsticks, and recently I realized that I have developed quite a collection. I thought that I’d share what I’ve been loving and review what I can! Now, this collection is not including some lip glosses that I have, simply because I really don’t wear them enough to give a clear review.
This is my whole lipstick collection. A few drugstore, a few high end, a few liquid, and plenty of colors for everyone.
I thought I’d take it by section, going through all the similar colors to give this some kind of order. Let’s start with the light summery colors.
I have five very light, very summery colors. From left to right:
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm- 205 Elusive Insaisissable
This color is so lovely and fresh on your lips. It is quite sheer, and does not last super long, but it is a lovely purse lipstick. It is so easy to apply, it feels really fresh going on and smells kind of like peppermint. The color is a perfect bright pink color, not too pale so it works for early spring before your skin has any color. Would recommend as a drugstore lipstick.
Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick- Melted Peony
I am a huge fan of Too Faced products, but this one I go back and forth with. The color itself is beautiful and a lovely light pink color. The color payoff is excellent, and it dries matte. However, it dries out on your lips very quickly and peels off. After a few hours, I look in the mirror and find that it has wiped off, moved to the edges of my lips, cracked, and flaked all over my lips. It looks really gross at that point. I would recommend it for an hour or two at most, simply because the color is so beautiful and a nice pink color that suits pale skin (it doesn’t wash you out). The colors and application is amazing, the product itself is very troublesome.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick- Rosa
This is a new addition to my collection and I’m just getting used to it. It is an incredibly pale, matte pink, liquid lipstick. I found the application a bit difficult at first, but once you get used to it, it’s no problem. The color itself is lovely, but being so pale, I have to be careful about what I’m wearing, how tan I am, and what the rest of my makeup looks like. If you can pull off a color like this, I highly recommend. It stays in place all day, and the packaging is really nice to throw in a purse (it won’t explode or anything). The one thing to watch out for is how it dries out your lips. I just put a little bit of lip balm on before I apply it, and it works perfectly.
The Body Shop Lipstick- 54
I’ve had this lipstick for a very long time, it was actually the second one I ever bought. The color is a very pale nude pinky-brown. It has a little bit of shimmer in it, which is nice since the color can wash you out. This is a lipstick that I wouldn’t recommend, not when there are so many other ones that are much better. The texture is really thick and hard to apply, the color payoff isn’t great, and it won’t last very long on your lips. If you are looking for something to leave marks on all of your cups, then this is for you! I usually love the products from The Body Shop, but their lipsticks aren’t the best.
Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick- Coral Blossom
This is a lipstick I kind of forgot about for most of the summer. When I finally used it, I was so pleased. It is a very sheer color, and kind of feels like a tinted lip balm. It is very moisturizing, lasts relatively well (considering the texture), and the color is really what sold me on it. It is an amazing coral color that looks so summery and fresh. I would definitely say that this is a lipstick to get for your signature summer look!
The lipsticks reviewed in this post are the 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, and 16th swatches, from left to right!
So there you go, those are my light summer colors in my lipstick collection. The other colors will be in other posts, so keep your eyes peeled for those!
