Purse Glosses. These are the lip products that will go with any look and you can apply easily without a mirror. I am guilty of keeping up to 10 lip products in my purse at a time so I can easily change my look at the drop of a hat, but the ones I tend to reach for most are the low maintenance, neutral, hydrating options. I’ve selected 3 of my tried and true favorites that look great even if your lips are dry or the rest of your makeup has gone wonky.
This Buxom Full on Lip Cream in White Russian used to be a real favorite in my collection and I used it religiously. Then I went through a bit of a matte lip stage and this (and all my glosses) fell by the wayside. And I have rediscovered it just in time for Valentine’s Day!
I am a fan of several of the Buxom lip products, but this one is especially good for Valentine’s Day or date night. Let me tell you why…
My favorite part of this lipstick has to be the packaging. If you haven’t experienced the magnetic closure of these new Nars lipsticks, then you have to find your nearest Sephora or Nordstroms and try it out.
The magnetic snap when it closes is so satisfying.
My second favorite thing has to be the color. Nars Anna is a deep pink. It has mauvy, cool undertones, which I love and help your teeth look whiter.
I will definitely be wearing this color a lot in the fall and probably all year because it is a deep color, but isn’t too shocking or bold for everyday. That means it is office and school appropriate, but you’ll still make a makeup statement.
The entire Nars Audacious lipstick line is inspired by and named after Hollywood starlets. All of the colors are bold, luxurious and make a statement. The formula is also very creamy and feels very hydrating. It did seem to bleed slightly and look a tad messy after while so I would recommend using a lip liner, but I am still satisfied with this lipstick purchase.
