We all know that it would be Laura’s lipstick line where I would first zone into…and on Dinna and Bea’s recommendation, I decided to get a Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Color.

Maybelline Velvet Matte MAT12: Almost My Favorite Nude Lipstick

Day 10: My Favorite Nude Lipstick #20-Day Lipstick Challenge Right now, I don’t have a nude lipstick that I consider a favorite. It used to be NARS Audacious Barbara, but NARS Audacious and I had a falling out. I should probably make a separate post on that. In terms of color, my most liked nude right now is Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipstick in Mat 12. I think it’s almost the same color as Inglot 428, but MAT 12 looks lighter because it’s semi-sheer and my lips are pale. MAT 12 is a sliiightly coral peach nude. I found the Maybelline Velvet…

Inglot 428: My Favorite Matte Lipstick At The Moment

Day 9 – 20-Day Lipstick Challenge My search for a medium muted soft-peach lipstick began when I bought MAC Runway Hit and found it too pale for my skin tone. Let me digress real quick: Runway Hit is horrible. If not for MAKE Cosmetics lip primer and Sonia Kashuk’s Velvet Matte Pencil, it would take me the whole day to get Runway Hit to apply evenly.

I keep two types of colors as modifiers. A cool-toned purple, like Inglot 422, and the other is a concealer-like shade, like Happy Skin Too Cool. I use Inglot 422 to mauve-ify or berry-fy neutral-toned lipsticks. Sometimes, I use it to create unique shades. Who knew Inglot 422 and a terracotta orange could work. On the other hand, I use Too Cool to mute down bright colors, or slightly lift dark lipsticks. Here’s an…

Favorite Lipstick Brand

Day 7: Favorite Lipstick Brand 20-Day Lipstick Challenge I thought choosing my favorite lipstick brand would be as tough as choosing my all-time favorite in Day 1 of the 20-day lipstick challenge, but it was an easy decision. However, I feel very conflicted with my choice: MAC. I say this over and over — I really REALLY love matte lipsticks, and MAC’s matte lipsticks are all that I need if I’m not as interested in trying out shiny new stuff. MAC has two matte lipstick lines that are actually matte. The brand has more than enough colors to choose from. The quality, finish, and texture are consistent across the…
