Best NARS Products 2020 | Our Editor’s Top Recommendations

Best NARS Products 2020 | Our Editor’s Top Recommendations

With over a thousand reviews and swatches, I've tested my way through the majority of NARS products and releases, both past and present, so I have a good idea of what NARS best products are! In the last two years, NARS has revamped some of their core products, too, like their standard Lipsticks (now...

Lipsticks Over $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

Lipsticks Over $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

It's so hard to pick favorites! I really do suffer from appreciating different finishes, types of formulas, undertones, and a plethora of shades.  Lisa Eldridge's Velvet Lipsticks were as good as billed, which I finally reviewed in 2019 (they sold out so quickly that I was waiting for a restock to...

Lipsticks Under $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

Lipsticks Under $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

How many lipsticks did you wear this year? I might have donned some 750+ lipsticks (across all types, pencil, liquid, traditional) over the last year! Lipstick is the most competitive category; it's the one that I feel like I'll never, ever cover well because there are so many formulas that...

Liquid Lipsticks Over $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

Liquid Lipsticks Over $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

As I mentioned in the previous best of post featuring my favorite liquid lipsticks under $15... there weren't nearly as many liquid lipsticks reviewed in 2019 as there were in prior years, which I think reflects a trend away from liquid lipstick, generally, though there are still plenty of liquid...

Liquid Lipsticks Under $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

You know what 2019 was NOT the year of? Liquid lipsticks! The system only counted 88 liquid lipstick reviews (across all price points), which my lips are all-too happy about!  If there's further reduction in 2020, I'll like combine my favorites into one post rather than split by price point...

Sheer Lipglosses | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

Sheer Lipglosses | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

Here's how I know I could never have a minimal collection (in a non-blogging world): I just find... I love it all. I love variety! I love sheer gloss as much as I love a really richly pigmented gloss (see this year's favorites here), and I really wear all kinds of shades, undertones, and finishes.

As...

Pigmented Lipglosses | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

Pigmented Lipglosses | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

I'm hopeful that as we see more luminous lip color formulas gain popularity that we'll see some resurgence in glosses, too! If you like your gloss more pigmented, this list of favorites is for you (there's a separate one for sheerer glosses). I tested and reviewed just over 130 lipglosses over the...

Unforgettable Autumn | Lip Colors to Wear

Unforgettable Autumn | Lip Colors to Wear

I couldn't leave you without some inspiration for fall lip colors -- so many to choose from! While I'll absolutely wear any color or finish during the year, autumn makes me think of richer colors, whether they are brighter (but saturated) or deeper, vampier. I've created three collections of...
