Lipsticks Shades You Should Own

Lipstick is the makeup product that I last got into because, for me, it was super intimidating!! When I was in high school I would put foundation on my lips with some clear lip balm and thought that looked good, now I’m cringing just thinking about it!!

Lipstick Shades You Should Own

Over the past two to three years my love of lipsticks has grown and I am more confident wearing bolder colors.  It did take me a while to not feel ridiculous wearing bright reds or dark lip colors but now I love them.  Today I wanted to share the four types of lipstick shades you should own to have a good lipstick collection.  Keep reading to see the shades I’m talking about and also various lipsticks I recommend.  Enjoy!!

Nude – Lipstick that is nude color is my go-to for days when I’m in a rush or want to draw attention to my eyes.  My favorite nude lipstick at the moment is Maroon Dust by Max Factor, it last all day long!! Other nude shades that I love to wear are Velvet Teddy by MAC Cosmetics, Beige Chiffon by Jafra, and Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick in Set Sail by Tarte.  Set Sail could really go as a dusty rose color but I feel it fits well in the nudes category.  * Swatched in the order they are mentioned.

Pink – I’m a girly girl so pink lipstick is super fun for me to wear.  It always catches my eye and out of all the shades of lipstick I own, pink is the one I buy most, even if I don’t wear it too often.  My favorite pink colored lipstick right now is Blurred Lines Smooth Fill Gel-Crème Lipstick in Live by It Cosmetics.  It is a super sheer color and gives lips a natural shade of pink.  Others I love are Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Tulip by Tarte, and Lippie Lingerie Matte Tint in Envy by Tarte* Swatched in the order they are mentioned.

Red – Red is a must have for everyone!! It looks super classy on everybody and makes an outfit great!!  I will admit that I rarely wear red lipstick because, for me, it was the most intimidating color!! I love to wear the shade more during the winter and, not only do my teeth look more white when I wear a red shade, but I also feel like a million bucks!!  My go-to red lipstick is benebalm by Benefit because it is sheer, hydrates my lips, and I can wear it in the out without feeling over the top.  Red Satin by Jafra is also a lovely bright red shade that is super glossy.  Creme Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in Always Red (01) by Sephora is super gorgeous, I wore it for last year’s Christmas party and felt amazing!! The Liquid Lipstick goes on great and it lasted pretty much the whole party. * Swatched in the order they are mentioned.

Dark – I absolutely love dark lipstick, especially in the fall time (which I also love!!)  My favorite dark lipstick is Dark Side by MAC Cosmetics.  To me, Dark Side screams fall time and I absolutely love that!! Other dark lipsticks I adore are Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bacca by Stila (it’s kind of a dark fuchsia shade), Praline by e.l.f. Cosmetics (a dark nude shade that lasts all day!!), and Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Plum Crazy by Gerard Cosmetics* Swatched in the order they are mentioned.

July 2017 Favorites

August is here which means to things: 1) my birthday month is here and 2) it’s time for my July favorites!!  This July has been super eventful and so much fun.  I went to Mexico to visit my family and I had such a great time.  I went by airplane for the very first time and it was pretty cool!!

 

The other exciting thing about July was that I decided to take an online blogging course to better my blogging.  I am still taking the course but I have learned so much already.  I have decided to change a few things up a bit on Makeup & Flowers.  I have decided to solely talk about makeup because it is what I am most passionate about and it also seems to be my most popular topic.  I will probably talk about skincare and other beauty but it will mostly be makeup.

Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bacca | Stila

I’ll be completely honest, it took me a long time to get into the liquid lipstick scene!! I know, I know, it’s crazy, but the reason for that is because I didn’t really know which brand to try and I was a bit intimidate by the whole thing.  While I did try a liquid lipstick a few years ago, it wasn’t too popular and I didn’t wear it much since the shade was dark and  at that time I was still getting used to deeper shades.  Anyway, I finally tried a liquid lipstick in August or September since it came my Birchbox.

stila-bacca

I really loved the lipstick I had received, which was the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina by Stila.  I decided to do a little bit of browsing to see which color I would get next.  Two shades caught my attention: Ricco and Bacca.  I wanted to see how they each compared to each other so I googled swatches.  In my search, I stumbled upon a post which said that while they loved the shade for Bacca, they didn’t really like the application.

Because of that, I decided I would buy Ricco, but when I saw Bacca in person, I just had to have it.  I took a chance and decided to buy the lipstick even if I had heard negative comments on it.  I’ve had this lipstick now for about 2-3 months.  Keep reading to find out if it indeed sucked or if it exceeded my expectations!!
