I’ve finished another item from my 30 Before Thirty List: find my perfect shade of lipstick.
The result? I’m a little embarrassed to share it with you. Like I was supposed to go out and find the cool, little-known-brand. Or the respected-among-professional-insiders brand. And now here I’m all REVLON! But you know what? I tried a bunch of more expensive, more cool, more impressive ones, and I just ended up wasting a lot of money. Revlon lipsticks are awesome, as is that NP Set red from Target. And I found not just one perfect shade of lipstick, but three. Here they are:
- Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in Carnation is my favorite pink.
- NP Set Lipstick in Madrid is my favorite red.
- Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Daring Pink is my favorite everyday color.
Go drugstore brands! This is the one category in which you are winning among my makeup (though sometimes mascara isn’t far behind).
Have you tried these colors? I think they’re great, but are there any other lipsticks you swear by? And do you even wear lipstick? Sometimes I think people feel like it’s a little old-fashioned, and I think I’m the only one of my friends that likes it.
