Fab 5 for Lips

Start Each Day with a Smile and Your Favorite Lipstick...by Makeup.com


I have a lipstick/lip gloss addiction!  I collect them, but I am very picky about my lip indulgences.  I like long lasting color and I also want it to be silky smooth with a pleasant taste.  I do not like my lip cosmetics to be sticky or to taste bad  (I tend to lick my lips often and I don’t want my lipstick to taste terrible). 


Here are five of my favorites.  Most of the ones that are featured in this post are neutral pinks, but each of these brands offer many colors.  The neutral pinks are what I like to wear and all of these examples are my personal favorite lip colors.


In the cold January winter Burt’s Beeswax Brand can’t be beat for keeping your lips hydrated with a smooth, silky feel and nice flavor.  I have featured the moisturizing lip balm for those days when you have chapped lips and need extra moisture and relief from dry, cracked lips.  The BB Lip Shimmer is perfect for adding moisture while adding just a bit of sheer color for those days when you want to be more natural.

My favorite lipstick brands are Urban Decay and Mac.


Urban Decay offers so many colors and finishes; sheer, matte, cream, glitter, metallized, shimmer, and more.  UD Vice Lipsticks are silky smooth, long lasting and apply like a dream.  They are also very affordable, so you can try out lots of different ones. I can't help myself, I keep trying new ones; I like the sheer the best, but Katelyn prefers the Comfort Matte (she wore the color, Backtalk for her wedding and it was beautiful and stayed on most of the night).  



Mac lipsticks also come in many colors and finishes, but my very favorite is the satin finish and this particular one is my very favorite of all lipsticks!   The satin finish is a bit of a cross between a matte and a gloss.  I love the matte lipsticks, but I don’t like it on me.  I think the matte finish is better suited for younger women.   Katie really like the matte finishes. 



My current favorite gloss is an NYX lip gloss called butter gloss.  It is a great gloss, not at all sticky and with a name like butter gloss, how could you possibly go wrong.  The price is beyond affordable; you can have one in every color!

In my opinion, you can never have too many lipsticks!
