Current Lipstick Loves

12 Oct

It is no secret that lipstick sales have been on the rise. Gone are the sticky glosses and in are the smooth rich lipstick colors. We Glimmer Shimmer girls definitely love ourselves a gloss, but we find that as of late we keep reaching for lipsticks.

Here are some of our faves:


MAC’s Lipstick in Angel ($14.50, – This is an AH-mazing pink color. It looks great for daytime and nighttime. It’s not too in your face so you can pair it with almost any eye shadows.

NP Set in Denver ($16, – This lipstick was just in my September favies. It’s is the most perfect nude color.  It’s another one that translates from day to night with no effort at all.

NP Set in Cancun ($16, – The absolute most fabulous rusty bronze color is why I fell in love with this lipstick.  It’s the perfect shade that you can apply with your finger for a nice wash of color or use a brush to punch up the intensity.


I’m usually a lip balm or clear gloss kinda girl, but lately I’ve been wearing these lipsticks when I go out. It’s nice to have some shimmer without being super glossy.

Lancome Color Design in Top Model – So I probably should have looked this up first. I got this free with one of those sets when you spend a certain amount. And apparently it’s not sold on the Lancome website. I don’t know if it’s discontinued or what. But it’s a pretty neutral peachy pink with a hint of gold.

Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Luster in Sweet (exclusive to the Radiant & Rested collection, $42, – I’m not doing so well at picking out easy to find color. But like I’ve said before, this Tarte collection is awesome! Anyway, this is a light pink color with gold shimmer. This one is more pink, while Top Model leans more toward a neutral peach.

Maybelline Color Sensational in Fifth Ave. Fuchsia ($7.49, – I like to wear this because it’s the same color as my pink extensions. It’s not something I would wear just anywhere, but it’s fun for non-professional type things.

Here are the swatches:
