If you follow me on Instagram (@samanthamariko), you may have noticed that I have been a bit lipstick crazy recently. I mean, its the holiday season and what better way for a girl to make her look a little more festive than with vivid lip color? Above is my lipstick collection, most of which I’ve received as gifts 🙂 From left to right: MAC, Kate Moss for Rimmel, L’Oreal, Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, and Avon (in the back).
Here are 3 different shades of lipstick I used this week:
(Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Intense Lipstick #1 Bright Fuchsia)
(L’Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in Sunset Red)
(Avon Color Premium Lipstick in Pink Ribbon)
Out of these 3, I would have to say the Avon lasted the longest and kept my lips moisturized all day.
When I use lipstick, I make sure to apply using a lip brush first, then add more color with the lipstick, and then I finish off by blotting with a tissue. I recommend the lip liner/ lip brush combination from Sephora – the brush works really well. And always make sure you moisturize before applying lipstick! So important.
What’s your favorite brand of lipstick? Have fun with your makeup, girls!
