My 4 Current Lipstick Favorites.

Current Lipstick Favorites

We have not talked about lipstick in a little bit. For a while, I was pretty much always masked up so I pretty much just stuck to clear lip balm or gloss. But lately, I’ve been really into lipstick again. These four lipsticks are all very pretty, easy everyday, universally flattering colors. My everyday rotation at the moment.

My Current Lipstick Favorites

Honest Co Tinted Lip Balm

This is an equally pretty, shiny lip! I have two shades of this (I worked with Honest last month and they gifted me both). Summer melon is just a tiny hint of color, whereas fruit punch is… punchier! I really love these and you cannot beat the $9 price tag. I am not sure when they are going to disable it but my code from our previous partnership seems to still be working: 25GRACEA gets you 25% off your first order!

Hermes Shiny Lipstick in Rose Nymphéa

I know, I know… you are paying for mostly packaging here (these lipsticks are a big splurge) and I feel ridiculous but this is the prettiest shiny lip and I smile every time I open up the tube. It is the little luxuries. I do not regret this purchase in the smallest. This is the perfect rosey lip and that color block packaging is to die for.

Charlotte Tilbury in Pillowtalk

This is an oldie but a goodie! I wrote about it in more detail in a blog post I wrote about my favorite Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks but this is the perfect universally flattering everyday rosey nude. It looks good on everyone, and anytime I wear it I get questions about where it’s from. I’ve worn this for years and absolutely love. It is a cult favorite for a reason!

Kosas Rosewater

This is another really pretty rosy pink, and another old favorite – I’ve talked about it a lot here! It is completely weightless and just so pretty – like your lips but just a little bit better. More color than the Hermes or the Honest Co, less pigmented/intense than the Charlotte Tilbury. It’s a good one!!!!

    I love lipstick! With your love for color, do you ever wear red lipsticks? I adore red lipstick & would love your recommendations.

    I am such a lipstick junkie, always in search of the next perfect color! Ironically enough, I am the ONE person who does not look good in Pillow Talk … even the folks at cosmetic counters are stunned at how it does absolutely nothing for me. Although now CT has a more intense color of it, so might try that and see if it’s better.

      NOooooo!!! That is so sad to hear, I really thought it was the one shade that was magical for everyone!
