Summer Essentials: Favorite Lipsticks

image1Lips are one of the first features people notice about you. A good lipstick can transform your makeup completely. Your lip color is as important as the clothes you are wearing. For that reason, I have selected my favorite lipsticks for this season. Is important to have a variety of colors in your makeup bag from nude to bold shades. For long lasting lipstick “Jeffree Star” has the best selection. My favorite at the moment is in the tone “Prom Night”. This cosmetic brand is 100% vegan and cruelty free. You do not have to worry for extra retouch as Jeffree Star Lip cosmetics last for hours and dry completely matte. For a smooth look make sure to exfoliate your lips first.

Before applying a lipstick from Jeffree Star exfoliate your lips with a simple recipe straight from your kitchen. Mix one teaspoon of sugar with olive oil and scrub it through your lips for 3 minutes. This will make sure the color have a smooth look afterwards.

Another line I recently discovered was Beauty for Real. Their products also contain natural ingredients and rich in vitamins. Beauty for Real’s lip glosses combine high technology with a mirror on the side and a built in LED light.

Nars cosmetics offer a rich variety of lip colors. I was able to get their free lipsticks at Sephora. Make sure to sign up for their rewards program as each year Sephora offers a special gift for their customers. This year they are offering two lipsticks from Nars in pink and red tones with matte finish.


YSL and Laura Mercier lipsticks will be my all time favorites. Laura Mercier has a semi-matte finish with a touch of gloss. For a more Gothic look I always go for a darker tone like the Black Orchid lip color.
