lipsticks and lip glosses

Favorite Lipstick and Lip Glosses {Happy National Lipstick Day!} // A Style Caddy

I know I've been really sporadic with posting. Reason why will come in a later post. But I have something for you today!

Today is National Lipstick Day {there is literally a national holiday for everything} so I thought I would share my favorites with you. I pretty much only wear nude and neutral shades or deep wines and reds. Nothing in between because I'm just not brave enough to venture into the realm of pinks, fuschias, magentas, oranges... Anything that is bright terrifies me! I much prefer safer and classic shades.

1. NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramisu is a very moisturizing lip gloss with medium coverage. I love the smell {like cake!} and feel of this. It's a great go-to that you can get from the drugstore.

2. Buxom Lip Gloss in Samantha is my holy grail gloss. It does have a bit of glitter in it, but it's not noticeable once you put it on your lips since it is on the sheer side. Buxom glosses have that tingling, lip plumping feel. I don't mind it, but I know it's not for everyone. If it doesn't bother you, I highly recommend this!

3. I know I said I stick to nudes, wines, and reds, but bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Party Starter is my favorite warm weather color. The coral shade isn't too bright or punchy since it's a gloss.

4. This is pricey, but YSL Rouge Volupté Shine in 9 Nude in Private is the prettiest warm beige lip stick I own, and it's not just because of the packaging! It smells like mangoes {yum!} and is very hydrating. It's not the longest lasting lipstick so you'll need to reapply throughout the day.

5. Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Honey is my go-to work color. It's on the rosier side of nude lipsticks, which I think is flattering on my light tan skin tone. It's easy to throw on as I'm running out the door on the way to the office.

6. Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Natural in N9 Copper Pink is exactly what it sounds like, a pink brown shade. It is a little bit darker so I feel more comfortable wearing this during the cooler months, but that's just my preference. It's creamy so it glides on smoothly for even application.

7. and 8. Matte lip shades can be very drying and uncomfortable to wear, but Maybelline got it so right with their Creamy Matte Lipsticks. I have this formula in Divine Wine, a deep wine color that I love to wear during the fall, and Rich Ruby, a ruby red shade just added to the line. It lasts all day and doesn't fade. I always get asked what I'm wearing when I have these on!

9. Rimmel Provocalips claims to last for 16 hours and it definitely does. It's double-ended with the lip color on one end and a moisturizing lip gloss to top it with on the other. You'll definitely need the gloss since it's very drying on it's own. It doesn't budge at all so you won't have to worry about wearing colors, like my favorite red from the line Play With Fire, while eating and drinking.

Well, that was a big of a long post! But there you have it, all of my favorite lip sticks and glosses. I would love to hear what yours are!
