Normally my go to lip color is some form or variation of nude. This includes pinks, browns and anything that appears nude. I think I gravitate towards nudes so that I do not bring more attention to my lips. The last couple of months I have embraced my lips and actually find it to be a great feature! I’m glad that I do not have to pay for lip injections or lip plumpers. I have natural plump lips! Since I have embraced my lips I have also learned to love bright lip colors. Pink has been my go to color lately. I love drugstore lip products, the price is great and a lot of the products are great quality. I swatched my top three lipsticks and my favorite lip gloss for you in the picture above.
Maybelline: Blushing Beige is very close to a nude but it has a hint of pink in it, this color becomes more pigmented as you apply it. Feels smooth on the lips and has a bit of sheen in it. Only draw back is that you have to reapply before the day is over.
Wet n Wild: Dollhouse Pink reminds me of cotton candy. It is a little more pink than the previous one with a purple undertone. I usually wear it with a nude lip liner because it does look more purple than I would like on me. It is a bit dryer on the lips than I would like, I also wear chap stick under it to avoid the dryness.
Wet n Wild: Nouveau Pink this is by far my favorite pink so far! It is so smooth on the lips and it stays on all day. It has a bit of shine to it but not too much. The color is a hot pink and I love that it is a true pink. Though this is really bright the color is so pretty and feels so nice on the lips that I never mind going out of my comfort zone for it.
NYX: Strawberry Parfait this is actually a lip gloss. It is very sheer but you can build on it. I love wearing this by itself when I want a more subtle lip color. I also use it on top of lipsticks if I want the color to look glossy. It is a bit sticky but not too bad. It pairs perfect with Nouveau Pink, I actually bought them together for that purpose.
