Favorite Shades of Lipsticks

In real life photos of lipsticks in all colors to try irl
I think one of the easiest ways to pull together an outfit is with a swipe of the right lipstick.  A simple outfit is instantly more chic with lip color and an all neutral outfit is quickly more interesting with a pop of bright lips.  It's just so easy - and fun to experiment with to find the right one(s) for you.  And here is the kicker - everyone (yes, even you!) can wear lipstick, or some sort of lip color (light or bold, so many choices!).

I haven't always worn lipstick... I was interested for awhile, but afraid of it a bit.  Would it be too much? Too bold for my normal lifestyle?  Then one day I just jumped into it with Nars Heat Wave, still one of my favorites today, and never turned back. I've loved it and I got a great reaction from people that very first time. Since then, I get a lot of questions on how to wear lipstick and what colors and brands do I recommend, so I wanted to share 9 of my current favorites at various prices and shades.

Revlon Colorburst lipstick in soft nude mac lipstick in pink nouveau and maybeline in craving coral in matte lipstick reviews in real life colors irl

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Soft Nude - $4.99
Nude is a great color to wear when you have a really bold eye going on.

MAC Lipstick in Pink Nouveau - $16
I love this pink for spring and summer, or soft outfits, light colored outfits.
Maybeline Craving Coral in Matte - $7.49
This is my current daily favorite!  It's bright enough for fun, but not too bold that I can't wear it with anything.

CoverGirl Spellbound Lipstick Laqa & Co lip lube menatour Sugar tinted lip treatment in passion lip colors in real life irl

CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick, Spellbound - $7.49
This is my all time favorite pink! I wear it year around with everything.
Laqa & Co Lip Lube in Menatour - $18
I love this way this wears and since applied like a pen, goes on perfectly.
Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment in Passion - $22.50
For those that don't like lipstick - this is like butter. Heals your lips (hello winter...) while you wear them while packing a great punch of color.

My first lipstick, and go-to for a slightly bolder lip, but still can feel really day to day.

This one surprised me!  This red it one of my favorites and feels good on!
MAC Longwear Lipstick in Heart Hangover - $34.49
Love this color for making a statement in the fall and winter.  And the color lasts all day long.
