GETTING LIPPY



I'VE HAD SEVERAL REQUESTS VIA INSTAGRAM TO SHARE ALL MY BEAUTY MUST HAVES! OBVIOUSLY THERE ARE TOO MANY FAVORITES TO SHARE IN JUST ONE POST, SO I'M KICKING OFF THIS SERIES OF BEAUTY POSTS WITH LIPS! 
LIVING IN UTAH, I BATTLE DRY LIPS YEAR ROUND. DRY LIPS ARE DEFINITELY NOT SEXY! I TRY AND COMBAT THIS BY USING EITHER #1 OR #5. BOTH ARE GREAT OPTION FOR LIP TREATMENTS. I ALWAYS APPLY ONE OF THESE BEFORE LAYERING ANY LIPSTICK/GLOSS OVER IT. 
99% OF THE TIME I'M ALTERNATING BETWEEN VARIOUS SHADES OF NUDE. *PLEASE NOTE: NOT ALL NUDES ARE CREATED EQUAL! FOR INSTANCE #2, M.A.C. "MYTH", IS SUPER MATTE. #9, M.A.C "HUE", HAS A BIT MORE OF A PINK UNDERTONE THAN MYTH, AS WELL AS A TINY AMOUNT OF SHEEN TO IT. I WEAR #7, M.A.C'S "FASHION WHIM" IF I WANT SOMETHING WITH HIGH GLOSS. #4 , M.A.C "TO THE FUTURE" IS A GREAT CHOICE IF YOUR TRYING TO FIND A NUDE WITH MORE OF A PEACHY TONE TO IT. "TO THE FUTURE" IS ALSO A PART OF THE PRO LONGWEAR COLLECTION, SO ITS GOING TO LAST A COUPLE HOURS LONGER THAN A GLOSS OR REGULAR LIPSTICK WOULD. 
IF I'M FEELING A BIT MORE SHOWY, I'LL OPT FOR A SHADE THAT COMBINES ORANGE AND RED TONES, SUCH AS STILA'S "TESORO". IF I'M GOING FOR MORE OF A FRESH POPPY LOOK, I TURN TO  MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE CORAL HUE, M.A.C'S "GOTTA DASH"! 
MY FAVORITE COLOR WITHIN THIS ENTIRE SET WOULD HAVE TO BE #8, "BELLISIMA"! IT STAYS ON FOR HOURS ON END, RARELY HAVING TO BE TOUCHED UP. I FEEL IT'S THE PERFECT MIXTURE OF PINK AND CORAL. BUT DONT TAKE MY WORD FOR IT, HEAD TO NORDSTROM WHERE YOU CAN TRY OUT EVERY ONE OF THESE COLORS AND SEE WHAT ONE FITS YOU BEST! 

HAPPY TUESDAY EVERYONE! -XOXO H
