I hope you've all been having a good September! This month has been so busy for me between school, work and just getting back into the flow of things. I've finally got a little time for myself so I've decided to making myself a cup of tea and do a little blogging. Today, I am going to show you my top three lipsticks of basically all time. These are the ones I reach for the most. They are Russian Red by MAC, Rose by Hourglass and Nude Delight by Rimmel.
|L to R: Nude Delight, Russian Red and Rose|
Russian Red by MAC: Russian Red is a classic. There is really no other way to put it. It is that perfect red for a dramatic lip look. It is well loved in the blogger world and it is easy to see why! First of all the texture is creamy and thick which makes one coat more than enough for full coverage. Also it isn't drying at all and lasts for a good 4 hours and through a few drinks. It says that it a matte lipstick however I think it has a little bit of a shine to it but it is actually the perfect amount of shine. The color is perfect because it is a deep red with blue undertones that makes your teeth look super white. You can buy at any MAC counter or store for 15 dollars. It is a great red for anyone looking for a first red or to expand their red collection.
Rose by Hourglass: Rose is the newest one out of three. I was in Sephora one day and I swatched some of the liquid lipsticks. I went home that night showered, cooked and did all my normal things and then noticed that the liquid lipstick swatches still looked amazing. I was so impressed that I went back the next day and bought this one and let me tell you the long wear is amazing. This is a great lipstick for those days that you know you're going to be out all day because you can put it on in the morning and leave the lipstick at home. I have worn it for 8 hours, had 2 cups of coffee, eat lunch and went to three classes and it still looked just like how it looked when I first put it on. The color is great too. It is a pretty rosy pink color that works for everyday wear or for nights out. It also dries matte! The only two downsides are that it can get a bit drying so make sure to apply Chapstick before you use it and that it is 28 dollars. Honestly though, I do think it is worth every single cent I spent on it.
Nude Delight by Rimmel: Last but not least is my "go to" everyday lipstick Nude Delight by Rimmel. We all know my love for Rimmel; it is my favorite drugstore brand. This lipstick is a very nice nude color with a hint of shimmer. I've been wearing it on an everyday bases just because its subtle but still gives good color and lasts for about 5 hours without retouches. It does on like butter and feels like moisturizing to the lips. You can't go wrong with this color! It looks great on everyone. You can get this lipstick as any drugstore for around 5 dollars.
