I Love Me a Bright Lip!

Lately one of my favorite looks is a neutral eye and a bright lip. It is an easy look. I recommend it for anyone in a hurry! You can just lightly line your eyes and add a light shadow and mascara. Then add your lip and you are done!

I have found great bright lipsticks, pigments, stains, etc. from drug stores and expensive ones! Here are some of my bright lip products and my review of them:

Surprisingly I really like Forever 21- ultra pigmented lip color. It is bright and beautiful. It stays on for a long time- almost too long! It is hard to get off once on but worth it for this color!

I love a MAC lip! The colors are all beautiful and Amplified doesn't disappoint. A bright, dark color. I also wear put a neutral color on top for a light look!

This is Maybelline Color Sensational in Hot Plum. It is brighter than it looks!  Pretty electric! Very moisturizing and feels good for your lips. Only wear it if you want a very bright color- but great product!

This is a great bright red/pink! NYX in Chaos. It is one of my favorites. Love the boldness of the color. It is hard to get off when you get it on the skin, as most reds- but so pretty! Packaging is not well made! A couple days after I bought it the case started cracking- but it works!
I love NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella. I got it for free free as part of my birthday gift from Sephora. It is a beautiful bright red that glides on.

Makeup- When to Splurge and When to Save

Buying makeup can get expensive so when I was shopping with my sister and sweet nieces a couple days ago- I decided to go cheap. I have the belief that certain items you can go cheap on. Mainly lips and eyes. I don’t like too many inexpensive face products because my skin is sensitive and many make my skin break out. I stick to Clinique, MAC, Makeupforever, Lancome, etc. and I am okay with spending the money for these good quality products.  I would love to hear of any face product suggestions for sensitive skin that are cheaper?

Clinique Even Better foundation is great for sensitive skin and has great coverage.

MAC Studio Fix is so worth the money! It stays on forever. It never irritates my skin and goes on so smooth. It also lasts forever. One compact  lasts me months. Love it!

For eyeshadow I often buy more expensive brands too because I feel like they stay on longer.  That is true for eyeliner too. I do like to buy some cheap eye shadows and eye liners to try out colors.

I would love this Laura Mercier palette. It is $44 at Sephora- which is a lot, but good quality eye shadow is worth the splurge.

One of my favorite mascaras is Maybelline great lash in blackest black.  Stays on and gives a full lash. Love.

Love this mascara and it most places it is under $5!

Lipsticks I buy cheap sometimes. I find that some of the cheaper brands you have to apply more often- but reapplying lipstick doesn’t bother me too much!  So this weekend I spent 25 dollars at Forever 21 and got a whole lot of stuff. Most of it lip items with a few eye liners and brushes.  The lip crayon was great. Stays on for quite a while and the color is so vibrant.

I also got a lip pigment I love it. Great color and it stays on for a long time. Only problem is it is drying for the lips- so I put a moisturizing lipstick in a neutral color on top. I was surprised with the Forever 21 makeup– try it out!
