6 pretty lipsticks that make your skin look amazing
Every so often you buy a lipstick because it looked gorgeous at the store, only to find out that in normal light, it’s not quite your colour. A lipstick for me is a means to an end - it has to make my skin look bright and rosy instantly. If it makes my dark circles look darker and skin look dull, then it’s not worth my time, no matter how amazing or unusual the colour may be. I’ve put together this list of neutral shades (not too pink, brown, or peach) because they make your face look flawless:
1. Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lip Potion in Vague Obsession
A pretty, warm nude with a shot of metal to make it perfect for a smokey eye.
2. Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer
I love wearing this as a top coat to elevate a nude lipstick. Even when worn on it’s own, this peachy metallic gloss suits all skin-tones.
3. Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo in Message
I have almost finished the tube, which is saying a lot. It’s almost impossible for me to go through a full product because I’m always testing new shades and textures. This dusty rose is extremely moisturising for the lips but leaves a stain behind when it comes off.
4. Hourglass Confession Lipstick in I Want
At only two ounces this has to be the least amount of lipstick ever been available. Still this pinky nude shade is so flattering, so creamy, so complexion brightening and long lasting that I’m willing to overlook tiny amount of product.
5. M.A.C Liptensity Lipstick in Smoked Almond
If you want to buy just one lipstick for the festive season, make it this one. The nutty, peach brown colour is extremely flattering for the skin and looks good worn alone or with a smokey eye.
6. Becca Beach Tint in Watermelon
Don’t be fooled by the girly name or the pinky shade. When blended out on the lips and cheeks its a sophisticated beige pink that dries matte and looks good on everyone.
