4 Great Lipsticks for a Strong Power Lip

Couple any of these winners with a distracting shirt for all awkward meetings/presentations/Mondays and you win at life:

  1. Make Up For Ever #40: This is my newest horse in the stable, the color is like a hot orange almost neon and I f’ing love it, though it’s not for the faint of heart. It has a very lipstick-y smell however and the wear length is medium, make sure it’s in your pocket when you walk out the door, you’ll need to reapply after coffee. It has a satin finish and I wish it was matte but that’s OK, anyone have a great matte orange lip?
  2. Sephora Hot Tango: A great bright red, not brickish or brown or purple, and good and matte. Overall I like the way Sephora lipsticks wear. It’ll last you all the way through 3pm lunch, and even as it fades it doesn’t change into a weird color.
  3. YSL Nude Beige: I bought this one in a moment of weakness after I had been sick for an eternity and hit that point where I would pay whatever it took to feel joy again. I guess lipstick was the trick. It’s ridiculously expensive for a lipstick but the packaging is gorgeous and it is very silky and tastes nice. Technically not a power lip in a color sense since it’s so subtle, but I put it on the list anyway because $$$.
  4. Sephora Mr. Lover: Another Sephora brand winner, a great fushia that goes with everything. If you want one great lipstick to wear with your entire closet buy this one. I also really like how the Sephora brand doesn’t have a terrible smell or slick feel.

BONUS: That sweatshirt with freaking lipsticks on it for Opening Ceremony, so weird, so wonderful… just enjoy it, it’s four hundred freaking dollars anyway.

Hi Beckie! No, I’m not here for lipstick. But, I did follow you over from Jess at Used York City. I absolutely love your photography and specifically your food posts! I’m a big time foodie but a major novice in food photography and photo taking in general. I have a nice camera. I just have to keep working at it. I love the props you use which is also something I’m working on improving having already spent a good some of money on it! Thank you for all of your great ideas…I just followed you on Twitter. Have a great weekend! :)
