When it comes to makeup, lipstick is the one product I’m ok to skip once in a while. As a new mom and a heavy smoocher, a good chap stick with SPF is all I need to keep my lips hydrated without feeling completely bare-faced. But every year I find myself craving more the look of a bold lip for a night out or a pop of colour for summer, and this year my lipstick has never looked better.. in my boudoir.
Weirdly, the time I most often wear lipstick is at night. There is something compelling about applying lipstick in a silk robe..It has become a ritual actually, my daily pick- me -up… and these three lipsticks are to blame.
Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter in Red Velvet Red 040: This is a beautiful deep, almost burgundy colour perfect for fall and winter. I adore this colour with a black silk robe on nights when I prefer a more vampy look. It is super pigmented and moisturizing and very easy to apply.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Kiss me Coral 750: This is such a great alternative to my usual red lippy and I gravitate to it whenever I feel like changing up my look. Love that it has an opaque finish without being dry and if applied with a lip liner, it can last throughout a heavy make out session ;)
Maybelline NY in Fuchsia Flash 865: This is the perfect flirty bubble gum pink lipstick.. it is one of the few hot pink shades that is true to colour and the perfect dupe to Mac’s Candy Yum Yum. I always get a reaction from my husband when he sees me wearing this (a good one). Every. single. time.
