Shades of Mauve

7:26 PM

I'm not a big fan of lipstick. I know, it's an atrocity. I just don't think many flatter my odd skin and undertone, but I do think that mauves look really good on me. The few lipsticks I have that I like are mauve toned, and I wanted to talk about them.

Clinique's Chubby Stick is a great, glossy lip color that can be slapped on without looking. Super Strawberry is a slightly berry-toned mauve that is a great natural lip color. It goes with everything and I just really like the crayon packaging of it.

Sonia Kashuk's Velevety Matte Lip Crayon have tonnes of natural colors, there's probably one for everyone! This color is like a brighter shade of my natural lip color. It wears really comfortably and is so pigmented. 

NYX's Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo is the most vibrant of the bunch. It's so incredibly pigmented that I often like to tone it down by applying it with a finger dipped in a lip balm. This super matte lip color lasts really well on the lips, although it does tend to accentuate any dry flakes, if anybody is interested.

The Elizabeth Arden Exceptional Lipstick in Breathless is something I don't really mention that much, but is an everyday staple for me. This lightweight and creamy lipstick dries down to a semi-matte finish and the color is spot on - a perfect my lips but better!

Thanks for reading! What are your favorite lip colors?
