My Spring Fling with Lipsticks

collage

Ask everyone who knows me and they will agree that I am obsessed with matte lipstick. I wear lipstick daily and I am always on the lookout for new colours – in fact, the brighter the hue the better.

First up in my lipstick rotation is MAC’s Ruby Woo. This colour is an absolute staple for me. It’s great as a day time colour and spices up any night time look, especially for a hot date!

I always wear my Ruby Woo lipstick with my Cherry liner also from MAC, to give me better definition.  Thankfully, MAC Cosmetics recently added the Ruby Woo liner to their permanent collection!

My second favorite lipstick is Flat Out Fabulous also from MAC. I can’t wear this lipstick without someone stopping me and asking about this colour. This lipstick is a nice mix between purple and pink. I always wear it with Fashion Boost lip liner. This liner was previously limited edition but is now permanent at MAC – thank you MAC!

Last but not least is MAC’s Damn Glamourous, which is a bright red with a hint of orange. I also pair this lipstick with my Cherry liner – I love a liner that I can wear with multiple lipsticks. This is another one of my day to day lipsticks.

I know a lot of people are hesitant about wearing matte lipstick because of the fear of having chapped looking lips. To keep that fear in check, I apply lip balm 10 to 15 minutes before applying my lipstick. And just before lipstick application, I dab my lips to remove any excess lip balm. I then apply my lip liner, followed by my fav matte lipsticks. The liner is important because, not only does it allow for perfect definition, but it also helps the color pop and prevents the lipstick from bleeding. That’s my insider beauty tip!

What are your favourite go to spring fling lipsticks?
