Weekly Beauty Challenge: Favorite Lip Color

It has been discussed in these pages (by me), that I do not often wear lipstick to work, despite my occupation. But that doesn't mean that I don't love love love lip color. I usually have anywhere between 5-10 lip products in my bag, all varying shades and textures of pink. I live for a pink lip, and I spend a good part of my life (and my wallet) searching for ways to achieve the perfect one.


For this week's Beauty Challenge, snap a pic of your favorite lip color (either on your lips...or not), then Show & Tell in the comments!


Also, feel free to share how many lip products you have in your bag right now. It will make me feel like less of a hoarder. Smiley Happy

My current favorite is NARS Dressed to Kill. Smiley Happy

@katie1724 - Man I love NARS lipsticks! We swatched a bunch of them a while back and it took all of my strength not to just walk off with one. Smiley Happy

Im obsessed with the ysl lipstick in extreme coral!!

Currently in my bag I have only 2:


Chanel Rouge Coco Shine "Cavaliere" (plummy brown)


Chanel Rouge Coco Shine "Evasion" (peachy-pink)


Sheer plums and peachy-pink/coral lip colors are my favorite so I have to have one of each available at all times!

I've recently just gotten back into my Chanel Allure velvet in LA DISTINGUEE' it's a limited edition from Chanel and also loving the new Lorac Coture Shine in Trend Setter.

PINK! Smiley Very Happy I have 25+ lipsticks (drugstore and high end) and most of them are pink. I have a couple nudes and reds but those don't get used nearly as much.


In my purse I have 6 lipsticks ( burts bees lip shimmers and rimmel London) and 3 lipbalms (burts bees, blistex, nivea). I don't carry any other makeup with me, so I don't care. And I never carry my high end lipsticks with me because if they melt or get lost or get dirty they will be too expensive to replace.

@candacebt: Me too! NARS does such amazing color, from basic everyday to really out-there brights. Cruising and Pago Pago are my staples, but I really love Heat Wave and Schiap (I can barely pull off Schiap, but I love the color so much that I sheer it out and try). Smiley Happy

I wish my lips were as pretty as the girls in all of these pictures. I could have them that way but not willing to do the needles in order to make my look like that for now I guess I'll just stick with the lip plumpersSmiley Happy

@beautylovingirl - I'm sure your lips are perfectly pretty!  It does drive me nuts to see perfect lips in pictures though too.  I have full lips and I never quite know what to do with the edge of my bottom lip in terms of concealing or lining it with color. 

I should post a pic and see what you lovelies think.  I know you'll give me honest opinions!

I'm all about opaque dark reds and berries.  My all-time favorite is MAC's Endless Drama, but lately I've been using Lipstick Queen's Wine Sinner a lot.  It's a little brighter, so of the two it's easier to pull off when I haven't slept well.


I try to only carry two lip colors with me at a time -- usually whatever I'm wearing and a Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum, my current low-key color of choice.  If I listed all of the lip colors I owned, however, it'd be pretty embarrassing.  Lip color was what got me hooked on cosmetics in the first place.


I've always been a nude/pink lipstick kind of girl. 


Illamasqua LIV

NAR Turkish Delight Gloss

Revlon Soft Nude 

Revlon Strawberry Shortcake Lip Butter

Lime Crime Coquette

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Madere


well those are the only ones i can think from the top of my head

@kalex: Yes, feel free to post one! I also feel like the pictures above involve airbrushing, too, even more so than any injectible or even lip plumping product, but that's just me. Smiley Tongue

My favorite lip colors right now are Buxom Amsterdam (natural rose), Nars Gipsy (sheer red), Revlon Really Red (blue red), Tarte lip luster in Lust (sheer red-brighter than gipsy), and MUFE lip gloss in S18 (sheer rose).

I need that Nars Isola Bella (lips with the peach)! It looked so lovely and when I tried it, I loved it even more. Right now I've been a bit obsessed with the Lip Tars and have been mixing Starling and Authentic.


@kalex- Honesty is something I'll always give if you ask a question. Any thing else will just be a waste of time for you.

Oh, how I love conversations about lip products. Great picks, ladies!

Everyday nudeI love this nude lipstick from Too Faced. Creamy and casual, but it still makes me feel sexy in a Brigitte Bardot way. 



At the moment Im loving the YSL NO12 e8960e7c03cb2a18_004001.jpg Bottom photo courtesy of The Makeup Blogette


Soooo pretty ladies! @lolo01 - I love the YSL Rouge Volupte. The colors are beautiful, it actually tastes pretty good (lol) and it looks so chic when I pull it out of my purse. Smiley Happy

I'm all about deep pinks and reds. The former for a professional setting, the later for night.


I carry a small makeup bag (the VIB Sephora + Pantone Emerald), so I only have chapstick, Dior Lip Glow, and 1-2 lipsticks in it at a time.


I'm currently reaching for:

  • Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Pygmalion (I think this might be a HG pink for me)
  • Dior Addict Diablotine Lipstick + Gloss (Amazing poppy red/coral leaning on me)
  • Le Metier de Beaute Colour Core Dubai (amazing cool pink/purple on me)
  • Clinique Chubby Stick Intense- 02 Chunkiest Chili (for a professional red)


I was able to snag Clinique Runway Coral in its limited re-release and I keep staring at it. I just wish I was bold enough to try it out!
