Five Favorite: Lipstick shades

August 14

-Tom Ford lipstick in First Time
There are many things I love in a Tom Ford lipstick, from the beautiful, luxe packaging to the texture and quality of the lipstick. I was pretty excited about the new matte colors and I’m happy to report that they were exactly how I expected them to be: perfect pigmentation, hydrating and matte. I’ve been wearing the First Time shade this month and even though it’s a different shade to my typical dusty rose shades, this peachy pink is perfect for Spring.

-NARS lipstick in RoseCliff
I love my nudes and dusty roses so I was pretty excited to try this new color by NARS. With a semi-matte texture, it’s a rosy nude on the darker side.

-Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid lipstick in Crush
Anastasia has really been one of my favorite beauty brands of the moment. Her liquid lipsticks are seriously some of the best I’ve tried: perfectly matte, without drying out the lips. I’ve been obsessed with the shade Crush. The shade is the ultimate dusty pink shade for pale skin, and is a super flattering color. I’ve definitely been asked a number of times about the shade color.

– Youngblood Intimatte lipstick in Secret
This is another brand I was recently introduced to and I love. I appreciate matte lipsticks in dusty rose shades so I’m all over this… If you’re not familiar with the brand, Youngblood is used regularly at fashion shows, shoots and lots of makeup artists swear by their products, so you can imagine how long-lasting and good the pigment is!

-Inglot lipstick in 411
If you love your mattes, this is really as matte as it could get! I don’t use Inglot a lot, and this is one of the very few products I own and love. It’s such a gorgeous mauve pink shade and even though you would think it would dry out your lips, it has ingredients like Vitamin E, Avocado oil and macadamia oil to keep them nourished and soft.
