Lip Favorites: National Lipstick Day Edit

Hello There!

Today is National Lipstick Day (because there's a day for everything) and I couldn't let this one pass by without sharing my favorites.

Alright so I know the Glossier Coconut balm dotcom is not technically a lipstick, but I do put it on everyday and night.  I put it on my lips right after my shower in the morning so by the time I am putting anything on my lips they are soft and hydrated.

Can I just say my lips were so sore after all these swatches!  Hello and goodbye to the new pack of makeup wipes I got this weekend.

Anyway, into the good stuff (left to right for each row). 

Row 1
The first color is a brand new one to me and I'm already in love.  This is NARS Audacious Lipstick in Ingrid.  My goodness the color payoff is unreal and this is one of the most comfortable lipsticks to wear.  It kept selling out last Fall and I happen to be thinking about it and looked it up and boom it was in stock.  I want to wear this now, but it's not quiet the season yet for this gorgeous deep Merlot beauty.

Next is Smashbox's Be Legendary Lipstick in Infrared.  I love matte true red lipsticks, but what makes this one a favorite is that it is not drying.  

Row 2
I got the Revlon Ultra HD lipstick in Gladiolus in the Summer Allure Beauty Thrills Box.  This is a creamy, glossy lipstick that is a lighter red tone than the Smashbox.  This is an easy and affordable option that is very comfortable for all day wear on the lips.

Dior's Fluid Stick on Wonderland is a medium pink-coral shade that is especially gorgeous in the summer and goes with anything.  This goes on easy with it's doe foot applicator and stays on for a surprisingly long time.  This is the shade I reach for when I don't want to wear a red, but I still want a bold pout.

Row 3

NARS' Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in New Lover has been a longtime favorite of mine.  This strawberry pink shade has gold tones to it that are just right.  This pencil is so easy to wear because you can apply it without needing a mirror.  

I hate to be a bit of a tease with my next pick, Chanel Rouge Coco in Triomphe, because it seems to be no longer available.  This is a gorgeous coral shade and the formula is creamy and gorgeous.  While you cannot get this shade, the new shade range is stunning and any of them would be great picks.   

Last, but not least is Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy.  This is my favorite lipstick of all time because of how easy it is to apply and wear everyday.  The color is moisturizing and subtle and is a my lips but better (or MLBB) shade for me.  I found this through one of Fleur De Force's blog posts and videos and had to order it, as soon as it arrived I fell in love. While it is a lot to splash out for a lipstick it is so worth it for this gorgeous shade in my opinion.

What are your favorite lipsticks?  Did you wear any today in honor of it being a National day?
