Luxe Lips: My Top 6 Lipsticks

I have received requests for my favorite lipsticks so I thought I would kick off the week with showing you my top 6. These lipsticks are in constant rotation and are the 6 that I find myself reaching for the most. It's so interesting how much just a lipstick changes your look. I have to say I am a little hesitant to commit to just these 6 as I LOVE lip color and am regularly adding to my collection. So let's just say these are my top 6 currently and I will keep you updated as I choose more favorites, deal?

Top Row {left to right}: 

MAC Half N Half is a perfect everyday lipstick, it is a little darker than a nude and pairs well with brown, gold, and warm gray eyeshadows. I wear this to work quite a bit. See it worn here

MAC Ravishing is the perfect peach color for a pretty spring lip. I love this with gray eyeshadow and also golds. It is very versatile and can be warmed up or cooled down. A great alternative to a light pink and so on trend for this season. See it worn here

MAC Girl About Town has been seen quite a bit King & Kind and is my go to hot pink lipstick. I love to wear this with gray eyeshadows and a light smokey eye. See it worn here, here, and here

Bottom Row {left to right}:

NARS Heat Wave is a must have for a bright orangey red. This is a more casual red and goes great as a light stain or as a rich pop of color. I will wear this everywhere and with anything I love it so much. See it worn here, here, and here

Stila Fiery liquid lipstick is not for the faint of heart. It is bold, deep, and sexy and will last for hours. I love how it plays off of porcelain and lighter skin tones. See it worn here, here, and here

MAC Dark Side is a creamy, dark burgundy that in my opinion will be seen not only in Fall but also in Spring. For those who dare to go vampy, this is an excellent pick. See it worn here



So there you have it! Leave me a comment to let me know what you think and what your favorite lipstick colors are, I would love to hear. 

BTW, the 7th lipstick shown in the first picture for those who are particularly observant is MAC Cherish, it is a lipstick that I also wear all the time that is a not all the way but nearly nude - when photographed looked too close to Half N Half.

  1. Great post! You DO always wear the best lipsticks! I have recently been venturing into the world of brighter lipstick. Do you have any recommendations in terms of primer/lipliner products and tips so that my lipstick doesn't slide down my face?

    1. Thank you Whitney. I do use this lipliner { http://rstyle.me/n/g6ntmudfw } in Ozone when I wear a super pigmented lipstick to keep it from feathering or bleeding. It's clear and holds the lipstick in better. I will include a how-to on this at some point so stay tuned.

  4. I LOVE Nars lipsticks, but I haven't tried Heat Wave yet. I'll have to pick it up. I've recently had an obsession with La Paz; I know that's hard to wear, because it's purple, but hey, live a little, right?
