Welcome the Weekend with a Bold Lipstick

From the moment I decided to step out of my comfort zone and wear some lipstick colors I would have never dreamed of wearing, I discovered a whole new world! Coming from a chick who LOVES neutrals, browns, and of course clear glosses or light colored balms, ladies need to be adventurous from time to time when picking out new shades.

I selected some GORGEOUS lipsticks to feature that I'm currently in love with, hopefully to inspire many of you to play with some color.

Traditionally people would associate these types of shades with the summer months but I feel like they are needed more than ever during the fall/winter months more than any other time of the year!  When you start wearing more of the darker pieces a sexy lipstick will help you stand out in an ocean of black and grey.

Let me introduce you to the colors I picked out from left to right (from the photo above):
Estée Lauder's Pure Color Red Velvet Lipstick $24.00 (Limited Edition)
Estée Lauder's Pure Color Fucshsia Velvet Lipstick $24.00 (Limited Edition)

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense #36 Satin Fucshsia $19.00

CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipcolor in Spellbound #325 $6.99
CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipcolor in Embrace #335 $6.99

MAC Matte Lipstick in So Chaud #A21 $14.50
MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Brave Red #A11 $14.50

Swatches are also left to write as per above list.

The second MAC lipstick wasn't in the top photo but you can see it here on the right.  I have no idea why "So Chaud" never photographs well, maybe because its matte? But I swear, the color is absolutely delicious!
Another favorite for me has been Make Up For Ever's Satin Fuchsia!!  I heard at least 8 people talk about this lipstick before I decided to try it out.  I will go out on a limb and say the shade will work on people of all skin colors.

The most expensive ones from the group come from Estee Lauder and I can assure you they are worth the money.  If you could only buy one, I would go with the Velvet Red.  The shade is perfect and could end up being your signature red lipstick.

Plus it smells (and tastes) good.  That does not mean you should eat this as a snack, but in case if you lick it by mistake you will be happily surprised.

Do not discount the two beautiful lipsticks from CoverGirl because they are the most affordable of the group.  CoverGirl notes that the LipPerfection line is "enriched with silk moisturizing complex." I promise you I did not have to moisturize my lips, cutting down my prep time!

I took the LipPerfection 7 Day Challenge in May and I became a fan of the product.  The shade called "Embrace" counts Katy Perry as a fan!  

Are you adventurous with your lip color?  Let me know if any of these tickle your fancy!

Here are the swatches from my arm.  They are in the same order as listed in the introduction

  1. I'm a gloss girl most of the time, but I have been wanting to try some fun shades!

    Satin Fuschia in particular looks pretty great. :)
