As a long time Burt’s Bees fan, I was super excited to try their new line of lip shimmers. I was not disappointed! The Bronze shade is a perfect nude for my fair skin and the formula is just as moisturizing as their regular lip balms. I will definitely be purchasing more shades!

M·A·C Lipstick – Ruby Woo
M·A·C Lipstick – Ruby Woo:
I’m not a huge lipstick person, but when I do wear it, I always go for a red. And of all the reds I’ve tried, M·A·C’s Ruby Woo is definitely my favorite. It’s the perfect shade of red – not too orange, not too blue, just perfect. And it looks amazing on everyone, regardless of skin tone.
It goes on smoothly and doesn’t bleed, and the staying power is incredible. I can put it on in the morning and it will still look perfect at the end of the day. And it doesn’t dry out my lips like some other lipsticks do.
If you’re looking for the perfect red lipstick, look no further than M·A·C’s Ruby Woo. You won’t be disappointed!
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, Dragon Girl
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, Dragon Girl
I have been using NARS Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil for over 2 years and absolutely love it! I have tried other red lipsticks and pencils, but this one is by far my favorite. It goes on smoothly, doesn’t bleed, and lasts all day. I get so many compliments when I wear it. It’s the perfect red!
Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick, Bad Blood
I absolutely love this lipstick! I have the shade “Bad Blood” and it is the perfect vampy red. It goes on so smooth and creamy and dries down to a matte finish that lasts all day. I have worn it for 12 hours straight with no touch ups and it still looked great at the end of the day. It is also very comfortable to wear and not drying at all. I highly recommend this lipstick if you are looking for a long lasting liquid lipstick that won’t dry out your lips!
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, Lolita
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita is a beautiful, long lasting lipstick. It goes on smoothly and doesn’t feather or bleed. The color is a perfect your-lips-but-better shade with a hint of pink that makes it wearable for any skin tone. I have received so many compliments on this shade. It’s my go-to lipstick when I want to look put together but not overdone. The only drawback is that it can be a bit drying, so make sure to moisturize your lips before applying.
Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick, 01 Always Red
If you’re looking for a long-lasting, highly pigmented lip color, look no further than the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick. This lipstick goes on like a gloss but dries to a matte finish that will last all day (and night) long. I own the shade 01 Always Red and it is the perfect red shade for my fair skin tone. It’s not too orange or blue-toned, and it has just the right amount of pink to make it flattering for my complexion. The formula is very creamy and glides on smoothly, but it does take a few minutes to dry down completely. Once it’s dry, though, it’s not going anywhere! I’ve worn this lipstick through meals and even kissed my boyfriend without leaving any marks on his face. The only downside to this lipstick is that it can be a bit drying after a few hours of wear. But, if you make sure to apply a lip balm beforehand, you should be fine. Overall, I absolutely love this lipstick and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a long-wearing, highly pigmented lip color.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick, American Doll
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick is a beautiful, long-lasting lipstick that comes in a variety of colors. The color I purchased was American Doll, a light pink color. I absolutely love the color and it lasted all day long! I will definitely be purchasing more colors in the future.
L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour, Fairest Nude
If you’re looking for a hydrating lip color that will give you a natural look, L’Or��al Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Fairest Nude is the perfect shade for you! I have fairly light skin and this color is the perfect nude for me. It’s not too light or too dark, and it has just the right amount of pink to it. The formula is really nice too. It’s very creamy and glides on smoothly. It’s also quite long-lasting. I can get away with wearing this shade without having to re-apply every few hours.
Maybelline New York Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss, Atomic Orange
Maybelline New York’s Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss in Atomic Orange is a high-shine lip gloss with a lacquer-like finish. The non-sticky, lightweight formula glides on smoothly and evenly with intense color payoff. The built-in applicator contours and plumps lips for a fuller looking pout.
This lip gloss has a bright orange hue that looks amazing on all skin tones. It’s the perfect shade for summertime or for adding a pop of color to any makeup look. The high-shine finish and lacquer-like texture make this lip gloss stand out from the rest. It’s long-wearing and doesn’t bleed or feather, making it perfect for any occasion.
