lip color, lipsticks, colors to try this month

Trying a new lip color is the easiest way to spruce up our makeup routine. It’s also the one thing that is still great to wear in the warmer months, unlike our heavy foundations. This is a curated list of 5 lip colors you need to try this month.

Each of these colors is amazing in their own right from the creamy earthy tones of mosh pit to the rich burgundy of Trust Issues. Oh, let’s not forget they are all great colors to help transition back into fall makeup. So mix and match to create your perfect summer to fall lip color.

 1| Trust Issues by Anastasia Beverly Hills

This has become a staple color for me this summer. You’ve probably seen me wear it so much on the blog. I love the richness of the color and how easily it pairs with everything.

 2| Sinful Cinnamon by Buxom

This is a great nude tone for a variety of skin tones. It’s a gel formula so it goes on super smooth and doesn’t leave your lips feeling dry. You’ll forget that you’re even wearing it.

3| Soul by Coloured Raine

If you’re looking for a cool tone lip color you can wear all year round, this is it.  If you do a bold eye look or a simple coat of mascara this color will compliment either.

4| Mosh Pit by Colourpop

This lippie stix is great for a natural everyday lip. The creamy texture goes on like butter to give you a perfect matte lip.

5| Thistle by Bite Beauty

A beautiful pale purple that is a great way to do a fun colorful lip this summer.

Beauty Faves & Wishlist

Normally, when I do these kinds of posts I break down what I like about each product. In this case, however, I LOVEEE every one of these products. I can’t even put into words how bomb they are. The sigma F80 kabuki brush gives me the most flawless airbrushed finish to my foundation. Not to mention the makeup forever ultra HD foundation is a gorgeous formula, it’ll even out your skin without feeling heavy or cakey. The benefits mascara will have your natural lashes looking luscious. The too faced palette smells like chocolate, need I say more?! The Nars concealer is by far my favorite of all the concealers I tried this year. And y’all already know how I feel about colourpop, they’re bae.

My Favorite Lipsticks for Fall

If you had been wondering what lipsticks I had been wearing in my last couple outfit posts, this is for you. To say I have been killing these four lipsticks lately would be an understatement. I have quite a few lipsticks in my collection, but these four have been my go to’s since fall with the exception of amorous ( we’ve been kicking it heavy since summer).

The colors are so pigmented and look great with a range of complexions. I love pairing taupe with my chestnut lip liner for a natural/nude lip. If I want something a bit pinker but still natural I pair amorous with my morning coffee lip liner. When I want a deep rich color I go for either creature or nevermind which I wear without any lip liner. I think nevermind by Colourpop may be my favorite at the moment and the fact that it is only $6 bucks doesn’t hurt.

If you’re an email subscriber then you would know I have been considering doing a Colourpop giveaway, if that interests you leave the name of the item you want to win, here. Then make sure you’re subscribed to know when I announce the giveaway. Let me know what your fave lippies for the fall have been. Until next time…
