My Favorite Lipsticks

Night Violet, Up the Amp, Roman Holiday, & Girl About Town

I love lipstick,  bold, brights, nudes... All OF THEM :) These are my top picks from my collection. I wear these the most & can always rely on them to look great.

I'm also looking to purchase MAC Vegas Volt & MAC Impassioned very soon.

L-R Mousse, Half n Half, Fresh Brew & Touch

 MAC Lipstick - Girl About Town
 Girl About Town is a bright fuchsia in the amplified cream formula. It applies opaque & does stain the lips. As it wears off during the day, you'll still have some pigmentation on your lips.

MAC Lipstick - Up The Amp
This lipstick is a amplified cream formula. Which means it applies opaque but has some moisturizing properties.  The color is a lavender violet but shows up more pink on my skin tone.

NARS Lipstick - Roman Holiday
This is my favorite lipstick in all my collection. Beats out my reds & nudes! NARS lipsticks are a higher price point but worth the price. They're moisturizing and apply evenly. This color is the sheer formula but still applies with pigmentation. 
MAC Mattene Lipstick - Night Violet
This was a limited edition shade, I wrote about it in this post. Its a great matte berry lip, that adds instant edge.

MAC Lipstick - Fresh Brew
A lustre formula which means it is not very opaque and has a glossy finish to it. The color is a great nude for WOC. Its a light creamy coffee color.

MAC Lipstick - Touch
Another lustre & another great nude for WOC but this lipstick runs more brown/red than Fresh Brew.

MAC Lipstick - Half n Half
Worn in this post, this lipstick is one of my favorite go to colors. This is a pink/brown/nude color in the amplified cream formula.

MAC Slimshine - Mousse
This is a slimshine formula which has been discontinued from MAC's permanent line. Its a true brown color & SUPER glossy. If a lipstick & lipgloss were to have a baby, this would be the result.

L-R Fresh Brew, Touch, Half n Half & Mousse

I'm looking for more BRIGHT colors for summer & vacation. Recommendations?

  4. i need some new lipsticks but i don't think i'm brave enough for those bright colours, i wish i was tho, those colours are gorgeous!

  5. Ricquetta, added current to my list, would love to pair it with Up The Amp.

    Antonette & Nikki, Thanks Girls! x

    Dionne, you must try a bright, maybe blot it down so its not as pigmented, but with your skin tone you could rock it easily.

  6. girl about town is one mof my faves!
