Did you know that lipstick was not rationed during the war? The Queen of England had a shade made just for her in a red that matched her robes and sash, it’s called Balmoral after her childhood home in Scotland.
I am a lipgloss lover, though today, we celebrate lipstick. I have some beautiful samples to share with you from several brands. I love that lipstick can elevate a low mood as well as be the perfect accessory to a power suit or party dress!
In this photo from left to right is the Black Opal lip crayon with a super rich matte color. Catrice lipstick is a popular European brand and the coverage is full with a tone of color and moisture. Next is Pacifica, one of the best vegan beauty brands out there!
The Pacifica liquid mineral lipstick is smooth and well wearing on the lip. I have two colors from Essence Cosmetics in their matt matt matt line, there is a nude beige tone and then a warm mauve tone – these lipsticks are matte and buttery on the mouth – not drying at all! In the photo, the next lip stain from Alima Pure is new to me and I’m in love with this soft tint with lots of moisture! It’s perfect for gals going back to school!
Finally in the photo you see the two Lorac Alter Ego lip stains in Activist and Secret Agent. I’m a fan of this brand, and these lip stains pack a powerful long wearing tint that is also moisturizing that doesn’t build up on the mouth.
Finally, how do you apply your lipstick? Sure, it’s easy to bullet it on but if you take the extra step of applying with a precision lip brush, like this one from Royal Langnickel in the Moda Metallics collection you will have a longer lasting application with super precise detail to the cupid bows and corners of the mouth.
You should try one and be sure and get a couple, one for your home, purse and work/school space!
Final thought, remember that today, MAC Cosmetics is giving away a free lipstick! Go get one!
Remember: you are beautiful!
