Four bold lipsticks to try now


I remember all the way up through college I was NOT a fan of lipstick. I thought lipstick was for distinguished ladies much older than I, and I was very afraid of even trying to wear a very neutral shade with fear that people would point and stare and know that I was in fact a lipstick-imposter

It was a good few years after college before I had the guts to try my very first bold red shade. It definitely took a transition time where I felt comfortable and natural with it on, but now a bold lip color is one of my favorite ways to spice up a look for a dinner out with friends or date night with my hubbs.

I have collected quite a few shades by now, but I have rounded up my very favorite, (and most worn!) shades in my makeup bag right now!

1. NARS Semi-matte lipstick in Heat Wave

This color is my favorite for summer! It's bright and has a little bit of an orange tint to your basic red color. I wear this one quite a bit!


2.  Urban Decay Sheer Lipstick in Sheer Shame

This color I bought for a wedding I was in because it complimented my dress perfectly. I was a little nervous to go into the "purply" spectrum but was excited when I put it on and felt like I could definitely pull it off!

3. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Scarlett Red

This Red shade is my go-to basic red color. It's not quite as bright as heat wave so it can be worn all year round

4. Dior Hydra-Gel Core Mirror Shine Lipstick in Be Dior

This one looked a little scary when I first picked it up because it looked BRIGHT hot pink, but I was very happy with the color when I put it on! This lipstick is super shiny and bright and one of my summer favorites.

Happy Friday friends!
