5 Favorite Lipsticks that won’t break the bank…

Maybelline Lip Swatches-10

Good Morning! I am going to get right down to it- I love lipstick! My natural lip color is a bit more tinted and rosy so browns/ true nudes don’t look the best on me ( I do still like wearing them occasionally) but pinks tend to be my go to. I love trying out new shades and Maybelline has been my favorite for that so far! There is such a vast amount of lip colors to try, the pigmentation is great, the lipsticks go on so well and stay on for a long period of time and…they’re so affordable! Don’t get me wrong, I do love myself a good Mac, Nars or Dior lipstick, but let me tell you.. if you want a solid selection in your makeup bag and don’t want to spend half of your paycheck on a lipcolor, Maybelline lipstick is where it’s at!! I decided to swatch 5 of my favorites right now that would be perfect for Spring/ Summer and linked them for you as well! Side note: like I said earlier, my lips already have a tint to them so these colors could look differently on someone else, but I wanted you all to be able to see what they look like on!

Maybelline Lip Swatches-11

VIVID ROSE: Very bright neon pink, has more of an orange undertone

Maybelline Lip Swatches-14

ELECTRIC PINK: LOVE this one, it is one of their mattes and was so pigmented- I thought the color was great for Spring! (definitely want to try out more of Maybelline’s matte collection)

Maybelline Lip Swatches-15

HOT PLUM: Another one of my favorites. Hot pink with a blue undertone- the actual lipstick looks kind of purple, but it goes on pink!

Maybelline Lip Swatches-13

PARTY PINK: I’ve had this one for a while, I wore it more in the Winter months, but it could be great with a LBD on a date night or night on the town with girlfriends!

BLUSHING BUD: I’ve been wearing this color as more of an everyday lipstick, but I think it is the perfect lipcolor for spring, it’s so soft and flirty!

  1. The Cutest White Tee…. | 25 February, 2016 at 10:33 Reply

    […] Now onto my outfit! How adorrrrable is this white tee!! It is so perfect for running around doing some errands on the weekend, or just dressing up for a fun night out to dinner! It has definitely become one of my favorites and I have been wearing it around non stop! I’m a sucker for easy tees to throw on for a nice casual look, but this one tops them all! I’m also loving THESE Steve Madden mules- mine are an older version, but these are soo so cute! I love both colors too! As for my hair I know I had a lot of you asking how I did it in my IG last week, first of all my hair was extremely dirty (major key for this ‘do) and then I used THIS wand and THIS product as well as THIS product and then tousled my hair with my hands and shook it out. As for the top knot (yes, my knot in these pics looks soo bad, but the wind was blowing like crazy and well, no one’s hair looks good in crazy wind) but I just gathered as much hair as I wanted in the front, twisted my hair into a bun, pulled it out a little to make it messy and secured the rest with bobby pins. Lastly, my lip color is from the Maybelline Matte collection in the color Electric Pink and I love it!! If you want a closer look + reviews on this color and a few others, check out my post I did HERE. […]
