My TOP Lipstick Shades

Pretty in pink

The YSL 44 lipstick pictured above is one of my very FAVORITE girly pink lipstick colors! Such a pretty pink that isn’t too bright, nude, or mauve. This shade has the perfect amount of color that won’t take away from your outfit, and I love that! I love it SO MUCH that I gifted it to one of my best friends in the past for a birthday, a few months later she texted me asking for the exact shade because she lost it and HAD to replace it!

It’s truly a staple you can always have on hand no matter what you’re wearing.

For a bit more of a statement pink, MAC Snob has been a long long time favorite of mine! It has more of a pop, but not too bold which I love. Looks so pretty with just about any outfit.

A bold red

I didn’t touch red lipstick for the longest time. It took a friend to convince me to finally try the MAC Russian Red, and it’s by far my most favorite red lipstick I’ve tried! And years later, I’ve tried SOOOO many reds. It’s been a goldilocks experience with so many others – a little too orange, a little too bright, a little too deep. But Russian Red is my tried and true.

Such a fun color for a bold look and just a classic that looks good on everyone. Aaaand it makes your teeth super white! Get it for only $13.20 HERE!

Dark mauve that WON’T fail you

UD Backtalk

Urban Decay Backtalk is the #1 selling lipstick at Macy’s, of ALL their lipsticks!! AND it’s Urban Decay’s #1 selling shade of all their lipstick colors too. I’m not a huge fan of berry colored lipsticks, so I LOVE how this shade is more of a darker pink/mauve color.

I have this lipstick stashed in my purse, at home, and in my car at all times because I use this shade so much. It will seriously always be a winner. Always.

CT Pillow Talk

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk is one of my FAVE go-to lipsticks! Its darker mauve color shows up differently on different skin types (which is so neat), but it’s still a universally flattering shade that looks good on SO many skin tones. This is one I love to grab-and-go that works with nearly any outfit!

That neutral look

Very Victoria

I discovered Charlotte Tilbury’s Very Victoria shade in the last year or so and it’s SUCH a beautiful color! This nude shade is like a “your lips but better” look. Something subtle that still gives great definition.

Creme Cup

I’ve been using MAC’s Creme Cup for years and years, and it’s another absolutely stunning neutral!! This is one shade that I’ll never get rid of. Such a pretty and flattering light, baby pink color. And SO beautiful if you layer lip gloss on top! Get it for $13.80 HERE!

BONUS: Glossy lip treatment I love

I love the maracuja juicy lip for a lip treatment that’s also a gloss! It’s not just a lip color, it’s a treatment packed with antioxidants, moisturizing ingredients, and goji to help collagen production.

Our lips are one of the first places we lose volume as we age, so any help I can get in that arena I’ll gladly take. They have eleven different shades to choose from and a clear option if you’re wanting something subtle! And right now during National Lipstick Day you can get THREE for just $39!!!
