Lip Colors: Keep or Pass?

 I think this product is the PERFECT red lip for fall, especially for blonds. It's Stila's stay-all-day liquid lipstick in Fiery. It goes on smooth and creamy and dries quickly. I usually find reds to be too orange, but this one as PERFECT! People with lighter skin tones should look for reds with blue undertones instead of orange. A definite Fall must-have! KEEP!

 This lip color by NYX is one of their newer products, liquid suede. It was easy to apply and the color was vibrant, but it was too bold for my skin tone and cosmetic preferences. It would look great on a darker or more olive skin tone. This was a product I would pass on. PASS!

For this look I used Hard Candy's All Glossed up 966 beach bum and Revlon's colorburst matte balm 215 shameless. I started with the all glossed up and then lined my lips with the purple matte balm and blended together to create this ombre affect. I love this, especially for the fall. Purple is a great lip color for fall/winter. #hardcandyallglossedup #revloncolorburstmattebalm

When choosing a lip color, it's all about complimenting your skin tone. While the NYX hot pink was too strong for my skin tone, this Stila hot pink gloss was beautiful. It was light and flirty without being overpowering. I'm not usually a fan of sticky lips, but this wasn't bad. It may not be a fall color, but I would definitely hold onto this one for next Spring! KEEP [for later]!

If you are looking for something more natural, I'd go with NYX's soft matte lip cream in Stockholm. It has brown and peach undertones to make your lips look natural. I chose to line it with lipliner first in a complementing color. This is ideal when you have a bold eye and want to downplay the lips, or if you don't have time to apply your entire face and just want a quick on the go daytime lip color. KEEP!

If you like the subtle color but still want the shine, try Wet n Wild's Megaslicks. They're jumbo pencils with color and shine, so perfect for putting in your bag and reapplying through the day. They don't last superlong, but they're inexpensive so I think they're a great value. They come in many colors, so there's a shade for everyone. I personally really liked this brown color. This is a perfect fall color, so this is a KEEP!

Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil and Revolution Lipstick in Native color. It's the perfect nuetral pink lip color, in my opinion. It's not a little girl pink, or a flourescent pink like the color featured above; it's just right!

Finally, if you can't decide what you want, or if you can't find the exact shade you're searching for in a story, try layering lip products. I do it all the time! Here I paired NYX's soft matte lip cream in Sao Paulo with Stila's stay all day vinyl lip gloss in Fuchsia. It wasn't too red, or too purple, but the perfect blend of both. Also if you love the color of a matte product but want the extra shine, just top it off with a sheer gloss and voila!  I've worn these products separately and have gotten compliments on both colors, so they're great together or apart. KEEP & KEEP!
