Mwahhh!!! Pretty and Bold Kisses!

Besides giving Sophia kisses, my lips have been pretty.....
(insert silly comment here)

"Pretty" thanks to some fun lipsticks!

Within the last few months, I've started a collection of fun lipstick colors.  Most of them are purchased after checking out the sales flyer at the local CVS or Rite Aid.  Whoop Whoop!

I wasn't much of a lipstick/gloss wearin' gal but I couldn't help but notice the bold and beautiful colors that are trending this spring/summer season (thank you Pinterest, Ivory Lane, Pink Peonies.)

I decided to give it a shot and purchase my first bold lip color, L'Oreal's Colour Riche, "Velvety Fuchsia."  I put it on as soon as I got into my car, and fell in love! (Yes, I was "that girl" you see at a stop light, looking at herself in the mirror, smacking her lips..Mwahhh!)
Below are pictures of four lip colors I've been wearing recently.  

Maybelline Color Sensational 20 Pink & Proper 
This color wears the longest out of the four.
It has a beautiful shine and it's not too bold.
 It's a very wearable color.

Cover Girl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm Coral Twist
 Love this color! It's a bold but soft (if that make sense) coral color with some shine. 
It's not heavy or sticky- glides on smoothly. I give it an "A+".

L'Oreal Colour Riche 173 Velvety Fuchsia
Need to apply it several times to make it "Pop" 
Goes on smoothly, like a balm
It does fade rather quickly but fades pretty, doesn't crack or make your lips look dry
Sephora Collection Rouge Shine
Most "pretty" and natural looking color. 
It has a more matted feel than any of the other colors
This is Sephora's top selling lipcolor, I can see why!

Price range $7.50 - $12.00

Just a few tips when wearing lipstick:
*When wearing a bold lip color- make sure your eye makeup is light/neutral.  You don't want to take away from your lips or look like a hot mess ;)
*Don't think you need to "match" your lip color with your shirt. Mix it up!
*If your lips are chapped- drink more water.  Chapped lips means you're dehydrated (learned that from my OB.)

Bold or neutrals, what do you prefer?  

Smooches to you all <3
