Urban Decay erryday. In no particular order: Conspiracy, Smog, Roach, 1993, Bruise, and the Alice in Wonderland one I can’t remember the name right now. The Nyx Epic Lip Dyes are nice, I have that in Victorian.

Bite Pepper, if I’m in the mood for a subdued lip; Fresh Sugar Tulip if I want something cheerful; YSL Something Vinyl Stain Something (I am so sick of long product names!) in a rich cherry red when I’m feeling confident.

It’s funny that I always end up going with Pepper, since I genuinely prefer Fig! I should just switch them out in my purse. πŸ™‚

Is there even such a thing amongst us makeup afficianados?!? ?
I have 2 lipsticks that show major usage, so I think it’s safe to say that it would be those: MAC Marque Ultimate Lipstick and Too Faced Pink Chocolate. They go so well with so many eye looks I do, especially complex ones or dark smokey ones.
I’ve also been using UD Troublemaker and Chanel Rouge Vie more often than I would have imagined!

Urban Decay Vice lipstick in the shade “Rush” is my absolute favourite lipstick! It’s a medium mauve with a brown undertone. The formula is moisturizing and lasts roughly four hours on my lips. Looove it!

I really make an effort to wear all my lipsticks, so I avoid having a go-to one. Still, I know that Dior Coquette, Guerlain Grenade and Armani Pink Bliss (ecstasy 511) get a lot of love.

ColourPop Magic Wand ultra satin is always in my bag! I also loved wearing ColourPop Kiddo lippy stick, but I’ve misplaced it. :<

It’s so funny that I mentioned this earlier today because I ended up finding CP Kiddo! It was in this plastic bag I had lying around for a few months in my apartment. >__>

Love that one. Gets the most wear time in the spring and summer from me, I guess since it’s relatively sheer but it has a beautify glow ☺️

I am currently loving Tom Ford Casablanca. Love the formula of tom ford lipsticks, and its literally all that I’ve been wearing for the past few days!

The current go-to are:

1. Givenchy Brun Createur (yes, still!). To make it shimmery, coral-y, nude-y I’ve been topping it with EL Sculpting Gloss in Shameless Glow. Pretty.

2. If I want a deeper color, it’s been Estee Lauder Slowburn (130) Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick.

3. When all else fails, MAC Brick-o-la topped with MAC’s Full for You.

I’ve been wearing different intensity levels in the warm red brown family. Most often is Bobbi Brown Tawny; TF Ben, and MAC Mocha. When I know a cool pink, it’s TF Theo. Or a warm pink, some old Chanels that I don’t even remember the names of.

I have a few in rotation right now: UD Ravenswood, Marc Jacobs Role Play, and Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Seduction.

I don’t really have a go to lipstick but rotate many. Currently MAC Viva Glam V, Modesty, Patisserie and Velvet Teddy are favorites. Also NARS Rikugien and Clinique Bamboo Pink. Revlon Pink Truffle. Bite’s Pepper or Honeycomb. What can I say I like my nudes and light pinks:)

Givenchy #301 Magnolia Organza (a red-based pink), or
Rimmel Lip Liner #005 Pure (used as base color) and Nars New Lover Lip Pencil (together, a bright cherry red)

My most common go-tos are probably UD Trance or the Revolution gloss in Liar (stocked up on this on sale!!!), with Studded, Oblivion and 1993 making regular appearances.

I keep By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer and RBR Perfume if his gaze in my purse because they are both nourishing and sheer and you can apply them on the go without mirror.
If I wear a work appropruate dark lip, it is TF Guillermo. Otherwise I try to rotate them.

Probably my most used lipstick overall is MAC Twig with Too Faced Sell Out a close second. I would have said RBR Perfume of His Gaze but it isn’t really a lipstick but rather a sheer gloss/topper whatever you want to call it. I use it a lot alone and as a topper.

I don’t have a single go-to. I try to rotate through my huge stash. If in doubt or in a hurry, I have a few neutral lipsticks I go to:
* UD Sheer Rapture (MLBB).
*UD 1993 or Wet n Wild Fergie Bebot Love (very close dupes of each other).
* Nyx Buttter Lipstick in Pops.
* Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Pasadena.
* MAC Halsey.
* Nyx Matte Lipstick in Ultra Dare.
*Nyx Matte Lipstick in Haze.

MAC Craving is the only lippie that I’ve actually ran out of, just repurchased! I love the way it looks and feels. I did buy 12 urban decay Vice colors when they came out and I’m also in love with them, they feel so wonderful. My faves of those are: Wonderland, Afterdark, and Psycho

I have such a love for Disturbed. To make it wearable during the day, I put on a nude gloss, let it sit for about an hour, and lightly go over with Disturbed.

Old reliable is Rouge G in Georgia. It always looks good and it is what I reach for whenever I’m in a hurry or don’t want to think about it. Other than that, I’m always changing up my lip color so I can’t really say I have a go to.

I have a few! But I’ve been wearing the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Rome the most as of late. Such a beautiful deeper rose and the formula doesn’t dry my lips out. I also love the NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Mauve – such a nice MLBB shade and oh so affordable!

I’ve been rotating between three shades: Mac Twig, Mac Captive and MUFE N7 – and I like to top them all off with a bit of NYX gloss.

Christian Dior Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Awakening Lip Balm Lilac, Coral and pink. Love it and can’t get enough. I always have back ups. I am thinking of picking up the shade berry 006.

Huda Beauty Muse liquid matte lipstick which is very comfortable to wear….or MAC Twig, Faux or Brave…or Lancome Absolu Rouge Amande Sucree. Those are on permanent rotation.

I’m currently on the hunt for a perfect coral lipstick. So far my favorites are Revlon Coralberry, Revlon Moon Drops Crystal Cut Coral and Milani Coral Addict.

My favorite lipstick of all time is/was MAC Lame (la-may not lame, lol). I then developed a sensitivity to something in lipsticks (tried many different brands and they all make my lips peel) so I’ve managed to dupe Lame with the NARS New Lover glossy lip pencil. Does the job, no peeling! It’s basically Orgasm for your lips.

Tom Ford Mitchell… GURL… DAYUM. It’s too perfect for me. It’s like an MLBB/entry level vamp. It’s almost the exact same color of my lips just a shade or two darker and ever so slightly warmer.

my go-to colour is actually mac mocha over givenchy lip liner #9 and the interdit vinyl #11 on top to gloss it

(or jug the lip liner and the interdit one, makes the most flattering wearable red ever)

on darker lip days, colourpop grunge lip pencil under nars audacious mona

My currant go to lipstick is MAC love & cherished because pale lilacs with a cremesheen finish look really natural on my super pale skin. Also a nude/rosy/mlbb kinda shade don’t look natural on me often and don’t really reflect my style.

I’m with Nancy – no way I just have one. My lipstick for the day depends on the look and colors I’m wearing. In no particular order NARS Velvet Matte Lip pencil – Dragon Girl, 413 BLKR, sex machine, Mysterious Red & Damned. KVD liquid lipstick – Underage Red & Bachelorette. Coulourpop lippies – konichiwa, lets play, the rabbit & echo park. TOo Faced melted – Candy Cane, Melted Donut and melted berry. UD – ex- girlfriend, cat fight, Firebird, Wonderland, Venom and Spiderwebs. Bite Juniper – only lipstick I’ve purchased a back up of. MUFE Rouge Artist intense in 43 & 34 – my first red and dark pink lipsticks. NARS Audacious in Grace. Mark Jacobs Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Finally last but certainly not least Tom Ford in Thomas (hubby’s name).

MAC Craving (this is a 10+ year love affair) and, more recently, Smashbox Legendary Be Legendary Cream Lipstick. It’s a pretty full on red and yet so wearable.

Repurchase after repurchase Too Faced le creme Pink Chocolate was the lipstick that lived in my purse but Christine rocked Honey Bear so hard when it was time to repurchase
:::trumpets blare and drums roll::: HONEY BEAR BECAME MY NEW PURSE LIPSTICK!!!!
I ended up missing Pink Chocolate though so I will probably…not probably, I will…end up buying another one but it will live with my other lip products.

Avon Perfectly Matte Marvelous Mocha. It’s a nice deep neutral that goes with everything. Not too drying and fades evenly with a little stain left. Got plenty-including some new lippies for the holidays I still need to try out, but I still grab this all the time- for over a year. Have one stashed In purse and desk as well.

MAC Dangerous! I apply it like a stain and I love it, makes me feel pretty and chic. I really like coral-y reds lately.

I have way too many lipsticks but my all time favorite nude is Tom Ford sable smoke with a pop of naked lipgloss , Griege is my color I always get so many compliments when I mix urban decay oblivion, with bites thistle and couloured raines soul when I’m in a frisky mood I throw on my perversion by urban decay

elf In The Nude (discontinued sadly), ColourPop Magic Wand, or if I want to be a little extra, I’ll line my lips with Mac Spice, fill them in with Mac Runway Hit, and use OCC Hedonist (also discontinued) in the center.

Chanel Rouge Double Intense Ultra Wear Lip Colour in Bright Raspberry. I love these liquid lip colors…color on one end, gloss on the other. No need for a lip liner or lip brush…quick and easy and last all day without drying my lips. I’ve also just discovered Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur in Framboise…easy to apply, glossy pigmented color, non drying and long lasting.

At the moment it’s been either just lip liner, usually MAC Soar or CT Pillowtalk, and if it’s regular lipstick it’s been MJ Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, or if it’s liquid lipstick it’s been Sephora #41 Vintage Rosewood or #23 Copper Blush.
