Really Into Lipstick
Of course, we are Really Into lipstick, but the hardest part is picking the right one! We have picked some of our favorites, from drugstore to department store, to share with you. What lipsticks are you Really Into?
Bailey: You already know that we are really into Nordstrom, so here is a cream lipstick from the NARS and I am absolutely addicted to it! It’s the “Banned Red” shade & it is on fleek. Every time I get dressed up for a night out, this is on my lips! It gives a dark but not brooding look to my lips & it makes my hazel eyes pop!
I’m Really Into’Papillon’ a pink matte lipstick by Stila which I got from Ulta. It stays on great and it has a beautiful, sleek finish that’s perfect for my everyday look. It’s my fave!
Sarah: I’m a total Laura Mercier devotee. I like her products & I’m easily overwhelmed in the cosmetics department. I’m the ONLY person who goes into Ulta & tries out make-up remover instead of eyeshadow. I do, however, love the Audrey lip color. It’s dark & a bit of wine stain, but not too red. I am pale as a ghost with thin lips, so I got to be careful.
In addition to the Audrey color, my gal at Nordstrom recently sold me on the Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Rose Gold. I’ve used gloss before, but it’s always blush colored. This with the shimmer scared the hell outta me, but if I use it over the respectable, professional Audrey, it livens it up a bit.
Jessica: Lately I have been using Benetint and I am Really Into it. I got the rose tint in my Birchbox years ago and never used it. I pulled it out a few months ago & it was love at first apply. Maybe I should start my subscription again….Benetint is great because it is both a lip & cheek stain. It kind of looks like nail polish and you paint it on your lips. It literally never smudges, which is great for me because Mark doesn’t like to kiss me when I have on lipstick. The color is really beautiful and it looks polished yet natural and it works for both daytime and night. It costs a little more than I would usually spend, but it lasts. I can’t wait to try the other colors!
Lisa: I love YSL Rouge Volupté Shine in #21 and #5 What can I say about this? It goes on like a balm or gloss, really smooth with just enough shine. When I worked at Nordstrom, this is what I’d always touch up my makeup with- it has a really big color payoff. I think I spent way too much time at the YSL counter!
Lisa: Try NYX butter balm if you’re looking for a nude or neutral. It’s kind of like-colored chapstick I guess, but a bit heavier with more coverage. It was like $4. So you can experiment and not break the bank. I love NYX.
Paige: I’ve tried every lipstick from Chanel to Sephora, but my Mary Kay lipstick stays on the BEST! I’m Really Into theTangerine Pop Shade & it’s always with me! Mary Kay is all natural & they’re all about empowering women!
Paige: I just bought an awesome CHANEL lipstick from Nordstrom. CHANEL Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur Jumbo Longwear Lip Crayon. I love #7 Fuschia because it goes on smooth, feels light & stays a long time. It’s brand new from CHANEL & it’s retractable too, so I don’t have to worry about using a sharpener.
