Recently I attended orientation at my local university, and my roommate, for the week, and I got to talking about lipstick. Where I live, there aren't a ton of people who really care about lipstick, let alone can talk about their favorites. It really got me thinking that I should do a post about the subject, so here it is: my current favorite lipsticks.
I got the sample size of this lipstick for my birthday from Sephora, and somehow I managed to utterly destroy. Luckily, as a graduation present, my best friend replaced it for me. I have to say, this is the perfect color for summer; it gives just enough pink to your lips to give you a soft color, but it doesn't look like you're trying too hard. It doesn't have the best staying power, compared to some of my other favorites, but its velvety texture and beautiful color makes me forget that I have to reapply every hour or so.
I've written about this lipstick before, but I have to say it's still a favorite. I might be a bit biased on this one because I did buy in Paris on the Champs-Elysees, but it still gives that unexpected pop of pink that I love. The color is bright as well as having just a touch of iridescence, making it perfect for when you want to stand out. The staying power is okay on its own, but I usually where it with a matching lipliner making it last all day.
This is definitely my all time favorite lipstick. I bought it two years ago and still wear it constantly (it looks like I'm gonna need to replace it soon too). If you put it straight on your lips, it looks almost like it could be a magenta which is why I always wear it with the MAC Cherry Liner. By wearing both of those, it lasts all day without any touch up, and it's as red a stop sign. Whenever I wear it I always get tons of complements, so this is always my go to shade.

What are your favorite lipsticks? I'm always on the look out for the next ex-favorite lipstick (Jurassic Park reference, sorry -- I hope you get it!).
