New lipstick trends are constantly appearing everywhere: on runways, at events, on celebrities and even on us “real” girls. Deep colors like Punk Couture, a deep blackened grape color; neutral colors like Close Contact, a creamy peach color; bright colors like Dangerous, an orange red infused matte color. These are only a few of the many shades of lipstick that are out today. When picking out lipstick make sure it works with your skin complexion. For example, I have fairer, lighter skin and I use NYX’s 536 Eros color. When looking at the color it is a beautiful deep red, but on my skin it appears orange in color. You also want to make sure before you buy any color you test it on your skin. The colors I mentioned previously are from M.A.C cosmetics. The lipsticks are about $15.00 each but they are amazing! They last long and have a wide range of colors that you can try. My favorite brand is NYX Cosmetics. I have the colors 536 Eros, 509 Violet Ray, and 561 Narcissus. The first two colors are deep red and purple, and the last one is bright pink. I buy my lipstick from Ulta and I spend around $3.00 a tube. They are cheap but have amazing quality. Lipstick is the perfect finish to any outfit. Whether you are dressing for work or going out you will find the perfect shade.
