Bright Lips

I’ve always loved a bright lip, but lately I’ve been getting better at actually wearing it too. I’ve put together a list of my favorite brights right now. Enjoy!

The only ‘real’ Lipstick in this list is the Tarte and I Love it, it lasts very long and is very easy to apply (even without a lip brush).

The Smashbox is more of a thick lip gloss, this is my newest find and I love it very much, unfortunately I need to be in the bathroom or at least in front of a mirror when re-applying and it doesn’t last as long as traditional lipstick.

I have a Love/Hate relationship with the Lip Tars. I love how pigmented they are and they do last for a decent amount of time. But re-applying them on the go is almost impossible and they tend to bleed a lot. However with the proper precautions (lip liner, etc.) they look beautiful!

I love how much control you can also have with these products, in these pictures the Strumpet color above was applied rather thick, while the black dahlia below was applied with a lighter hand (any darker and I approach the almost black look that I’m not sure I can pull of yet)
