Lipsticks: my favorite drugstore and prestige picks


Top: Ann Taylor // Skirt: Ann Taylor // Shoes: UGG // Lipstick: Maybelline in Pioneer


Hi loves! Many of you may not know this, but my favorite color is red. As such, it is my go-to color when I add a pop of lipstick to my look. I know I am not alone with this, but I have SEVERAL shades of red lipsticks from different companies (you can never have too much of a good thing right). In honor of National Lipstick Day, I wanted to share with you all my favorite red lipsticks that are both from prestige and drugstore brands.


Revlon’s  “Love is On” lipstick is a great shade of red that is versatile for all skin types.


Stila lipsticks offer great coverage without having to reply throughout the day.


I love Nars because of their quality and the fact that they do not test their products on animals. I do find that I have to re-apply the crayon options through out the day. Nonetheless, I love the colors and coverage of this brand.


Kate Moss’ matte lipstick are wonderful! The shades of red from this line is creamy and does not dry your lips throughout the day.


I can’t say enough about this brand Lorac. Their liquid matte lipsticks offer great pigmentation without drying out your lips. If you want lighter coverage, their matte crayons are soft and come in a wide variety of colors.
