As one of my Beauty Resolutions at the beginning of the new year, I decided I wanted to wear more lipstick. I had gotten into the habit of only wearing some lip balm, which is fine, but I started feeling guilty about the drawer full of lipsticks that were being unloved. On weekends I try to go for my bolder shades, but during the week I like to stick to nudes and neutrals for work. There are five that I've worn (well, four and then a new favorite) nonstop, so I figured it was time for a roundup.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick, 'Pillow Talk' | This is the newest to my collection, and yet it was the inspiration for this post. It wasn't until I wore this every day last week that I realized I had actually stuck to my resolution and had worn lipstick almost every day. Like the name suggests, it's the counterpart to the famous Lip Cheat. This is the ultimate pinky-brown nude that really enhances the lips, and the Matte Revolution formula is one of my favorites - a comfortable, creamy matte.
The Estee Edit Mattified Lipstick, 'Sunday Vibe' | I've mentioned this one a lot since I got it in the Sephora VIB Sale late last year but for good reason - it's such a good nude. This one is much more beige-y than Pillow Talk, but it doesn't drain the skin of all life. It has a nice hint of peachiness to it that brightens the face. The formula of these lipsticks are quite similar to the Matte Revolutions - another creamy matte.
Milk Makeup Lip Color, 'C.R.E.A.M.' | Another creamy matte - can you tell what my favorite finish is? This is a lovely pinky nude that's quite similar to Pillow Talk, but with perhaps a touch more mauve. It's a perfect "my lips but better" shade for me that I reach for whenever I'm going for a slightly more noticeable option.
Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer, 'Nude Pop' | I absolutely love the Clinique Lip Pops, and Nude Pop is my favorite shade from the line. It's the most pink of the bunch here, so it's one I reach for when I'm feeling dull and gray - it perks me right up. The formula is creamy, comfortable, and longlasting.
Glossier Generation G, 'Cake' | I had to mention a Generation G here - they make for the perfect easy lip. The sheer matte formula is one that's truly unique and it really gives that "lived-in" look to the lips. Cake is a perfect peachy nude that adds a touch of warmth without being too orange on me, which is no easy feat. I have all of the available shades besides Zip, and I think Cake is my favorite.
