Writing the intro to a post can be really challenging. I want to be engaging and draw your attention, but, especially right now, I’m seriously struggling of how to creatively say, “I love lipsticks. These are the lipsticks I love extra right now.”
I love lipsticks. These are the lipsticks I love extra right now.
Kat Von D always has my lipstick-loving heart. I recently purchased one of her new Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks in Sanctuary (review here) and it’s such a beautiful cool brown. I love Kat’s Studded Kiss Lipstick formula too: satin-matte, long-wearing, and comfortable. Lovecraft is one of my all-time fave pinky nude shades. It’s pretty similar to my other obsession, MAC Faux. But, you know, they’re totally different.
Also new to my collection is the Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Créme in Slow Burn. My friend Mili from Sharmtoaster has a great review of these on her blog (here) with amazing pics and words (because I’m struggling with words today). Let’s just say they totally live up to any hype. Slow Burn is my kind of color for sure, a rosy nude, but it’s not boring. Please make more shades, Marc!
If Slow Burn deserved an entire paragraph, so does Crisis from Urban Decay. Though now I’m feeling bad for the first three lippies I mentioned all in the same paragraph. Anyway, Crisis is a satin rosy plum shade. It’s not really a neutral, but it doesn’t look too bold for everyday wear for me. It gives me this weird feeling of confidence when I wear it. Like my wallet is the one that says “bad mother f*cker.”

I have no business buying more lip products, but I’d love to hear your current favorite lippies to add to my never-ending wishlist!
