10 Lip Colors to Try

Sep 5, 2017

I have to admit I am quite the hoarder when it comes to lip products.   I can’t ever have too many lipglosses or lipsticks.  I love trying out new colors and lines.  My purse is always filled with lots of options.  These are 10 of my tried and true favorites!  Sad to say I own way more than these 1o but these are my go to colors.  Many I have been using for years because they are so good.

My make-up pouch is from Gigi New York. I usually keep it in my purse but it is great for traveling too.  I love that it can be personalized.  These make fabulous gifts.  It comes in orchid (which is the color I have),  gray, black and aegean blue.   It also comes in a smaller version HERE.

ONE | BEAUTYCOUNTER Lip Sheer in Petal

I love all the BC Lip sheers.  This one is a great everyday neutral.  Just the smallest hint of pink.  I also love the Twig and Rose colors as well.  These colors are not super saturated so they are great alone or layered with lip gloss for extra shine.

TWO | Albeit Lipstick in Geranium

I saw a girl at Anthropologie wearing this lip color and I immediately asked her what color it was.   I didn’t even know anthro carried beauty products but this has now become one of my favorite lipsticks.    It is such a pretty shade of pink.  It looks brighter than it actually is when you apply it.  You can layer it on for a darker pink if you want.

THREE AND FOUR | FRESH Sugar Tinted Lip Conditioner

It is safe to say I am hooked on these lip treatments.  Not only do they condition your lips and have SPF15 but they provide the perfect hint of color too.  I love the Rose and Petal shades.  Rose makes your lips perfectly rosey and Petal is more of a nude.


FIVE | Loreal Infallable Lip Paints #314 Spicy Blush

This is one of my favorite drug store buys.  You can’t beat the price.  This is such a gorgeous nude and it really stays on too.  I would consider this a mix between lipstick and gloss.


SIX | Chanel Lipgloss in Amuse- Bouche

This lipgloss has coconut oil and vitamin E in it,  so it really helps hydrate your lips while you wear it.  This shade is such a great pink/red combo.  I feel like it is a color that is flattering on everyone.



SEVEN | Estee Lauder Lipgloss in Passionate Fuschia

This is hands down my favorite from the bunch.  It is just such a great shade of pink.  It doesn’t go on as bright or as dark as it looks in the picture.  Every time sometime borrows this from me they want to buy it.  It is a shade that looks good on everyone.

EIGHT | Nars Lipgloss in Dolce Vita

This is my go to neutral for during the day. It is a pinky brown that goes on more solid than sheer.

NINE + TEN | BeautyCounter Lipgloss in Peony and Dahlia

What is not to love about Beautycounter and safe Beauty choices.  I always keep these two colors on hand in my car or purse.  They stay on and I like that they are not sticky.  Dahlia is a little darker than Peony but they both are pretty light colors and not too saturated.

    Have you tried Jouer? If not, you’re missing out! I’m obsessed and it’s perfect to layer with the BC sticks/glosses…
