Hey Dolls!HAPPY NEW YEAR to each of you!I hope you’re all enjoying 2013 so far!There’s so much I’m grateful for and I hope you beauts take nothing for granted.I’ve really been loving the new beauty products the cosmetics companies are putting out lately.Trying my best to explore and review as many new products as I can so keep an eye out for a lot of upcoming product reviews on the site.Gosh….ever since putting up my 10 BEST DRUGSTORE MASCARAS,it’s been highly requested of me to do a post on my “10 best drugstore lipsticks”.So sorry it took a while but I’m really excited that I’m finally able to share this with you all…..thanks for being so patient❤
Here are 10 lippies that aren’t just pwetty and gorgeous on the lips but the shade range is suitable for all skin-tones as well.
Loreal’s Fairest Nude(800),Maybelline Warm Me Up(235),Maybelline Make Me Pink(135),Cover Girl’s Divine(330),Revlon’s Berry Haute(660),Revlon’s Primrose(668),Essence Creamy Nude(50),Rimmel Bordeaux(124),Wet n Wild Sugar Plum Fairy(908C),Wet n Wild Dollhouse Pink(967)
I’m not sure if you can tell from the swatches but the above lipsticks are all creamy and apply smoothly.The color payoff is Ah-mazing and they moisturize the lips very well.For the record,the bold colors are more long-lasting than the nudey
(is that even a word?haha)ones and most of them can totally be worn on their own,topped with a gloss or paired with a lip-liner.(The Maybelline lipsticks seem to have shimmer in them when swatched but trust me they are not shimmery at all.They go on smooth and don’t dry out your lips either)You can get these lipsticks at most drugstores but Wet n Wild can be found at Walmart if you’re in Canada or you can order directly from their website.
—Always moisturize/exfoliate lips before applying lipsticks.Using a lip primer is a matter of personal preference but it prevents lipsticks from fading/ feathering.
—For more color payoff, you can layer lipsticks and blot with tissue.This prevents getting lipstick on your teeth and also helps it last longer.
—Nude your lips out with concealer before applying lipstick so it brings out the true color of the lipstick especially if your lips are pigmented.This method can be used to tone down a bright color as well.
—If you’d like to tone down the color of a bright lipstick,you can do so by applying a nude lipstick or gloss over it.
—You can use a brighter/deeper lipstick shade like Rimmel’s Bordeaux and WnW Dollhouse Pink as cream blushes by swiping some color from the lipstick onto your index finger and applying to your cheeks making sure to blend out.(You can set it after with a powder blush if you want) Don’t forget to use clean fingers though:-0
—-Don’t sleep on lip brushes as they help to evenly distribute lipstick with no harsh lines.
Hope this was helpful dolls….
Until next time….take care=]]
