“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass ref lipstick!” -Gwyneth Paltrow

“Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.” -Elizabeth Taylor

“Anytime that I have a bright red [lipstick], I’m like, ‘Here I am. Who’s ready for me?’ Even if no one’s ready.” -Issa Rae

Lipstick could quite possibly be listed under “things that give super powers” for women. It lifts the spirit and puts her in a mood that is unstoppable. For National Lipstick Day 2020 (which was last week), I thought I’d share my recent lipstick faves! We’ve been masked up so I’m truly looking forward to the day I can freely color my lips again and strut my stuff!

Clockwise from top:

MISSY RUSSELL BEAUTY | Worthy : A really pretty blush colored nude! I add a touch of chestnut lip pencil for the perfect almost nude, matte lip.

THE LIP BAR | Drama Queen : Bold and Dark for the daring diva! Dries matte and perfect for a GNO!

MISSY RUSSELL BEAUTY | Unapologetic : Amazing mix of pink and purple! Bold but feminine and goes with so many looks from casual to black tie!

THE LIP BAR | Bawse Lady : The perfect red color.  Depends on the liner, you can get a good cranberry color when you don’t want a true bold red. You’ll definitely feel like a bawse with this color.

LADIES WEAR COSMETICS | Regal : Nothing’s better than a matte red lipstick. Mood changing and attention grabbing and can go from the board room to happy hour with no problem!!! Sold out now but keep checking for the restock!

THE LIP BAR | Boy Trouble : This orange with a subtle hint of red goes hand in hand with fun and the summer sun!

According to Q, lipstick can elevate your mood and outfit from drab to fab with a quick swipe. These favorites will for sure stay in heavy rotation in my makeup bag for years to come!! Be sure you grab them while you can and let me know what you think! 💋💋💋

What’s your current favorite lipstick?

    Love this. Thanks for giving me some more lipsticks to add to my collection. A girl can never have too many lipsticks.
