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.

I am wearing the NARS lip color here. Love it with my pale skin!

My quick makeup pick me up

Some mornings are hard- as we all know! On Sunday night my one year old decided to wake up at least four times. Then my three year old woke up at 6. This would be okay if I hadn’t gone to bed past midnight- darn Mad Men!

My children were grumpy and I was feeling blah. I wanted to feel more awake. I did a couple quick on demand workouts and then I decided to get ready. With two whinny toddlers it had to be a quick getting ready.

I started with my favorite face cream- Eucerin Q10 anti-wrinkle- sensitive skin. It does not irritate my skin and keeps my skin moisturized for the whole day. I didn’t put any foundation or other face make up on. It is just one of those days =)

Then I did my perfect quick eyes– but with no eyeliner on my lids- just under the eyes. I used Maybelline great last mascara– I have loved this product for years. It stays on forever and comes off easy. Love.

Then I needed color! I put Bareminerals lipstick in rose crepe on my lips. It is a great neutral pink. It is matte like and again stays on for a long time. It also moisturizes the lips too. Great product. Unfortunately I can’t find this color in stores anymore- ┬ábut Make Your Move color of the Marvelous Moxie Lipstick would be a close comparison.

Then I felt more alive and ready to face the day with my boys in a more awake state! And it isn’t turning out to be a bad day at all!
