Colors from top: Rebel Rose, Nice to Fuchsia, Oh My Dolly, & Pink Really Hard
We are already channeling springtime with all the shades of pink we lay an eye on. Because there is no such thing as too many lipsticks, we decided there is no need to choose a favorite between Wet n Wild’s Megalast Liquid Catsuit highly pigmented colors. This set of lightweight liquid lipsticks comes in four suggestive tones: Rebel Rose (dusty pink/mauve), Nice to Fuchsia (purple-pink), Oh My Dolly (vivid bright pink) and Pink Really Hard (baby pink). Just the names are enough to buy us!
We were appalled with how comfortable to wear this liquid lipstick, quite possibly thanks to the ElastiSilk formula that combines flexible color adhesion with silky-smooth pigments for a transfer-proof performance. A single brush provides even application. Smooth like lip-gloss, but with a matte finish as soon as it dries.
It’s a safe choice on date night: no cracking nor flaking, and a barely noticeable transfer when eating or drinking. Megalast Liquid Catsuit lipsticks will survive even the busiest day, at least 8 hours (and still counting). This affordable little miracle is up to the challenge when compared with other high-end brands we have previously tried.
Our to-go trick to maximize the assets of long-lasting liquid lipstick is certainly not new for make-up enthusiasts: exfoliate, moisturize, apply. Considering this product already comes with a built-in moisturizer, we can feel free to skip step two and start rocking our Wet n Wild look for hours to come. No crease. No budge. No worries.

Clinique Pop Matte Lip Colour + Primer
Colors from left: Coral Pop, Mod Pop, Graffiti Pop, and Rose Pop
Get a dramatic pop of color that works in the daytime or for an evening out on the town!
We are always looking for the perfect matte lipstick and Clinique Pop Matte Lip Colour +Primer offers an amazing formula and color selection. This lipstick is creamy, comfortable, and most importantly NON-DRYING. We would have never believed that these are mattes. The texture and built in primer allows the lipstick to glide on and doesn’t tug or pull like other matte lipsticks we’ve tried. Plus, the finish is beautiful! Let’s not confuse this with a full-on liquid lipstick that doesn’t budge. It’s a very long lasting matte lipstick (8 hours) that may require a touch up only after eating. The case is convenient with the top serving as a mirror. The gorgeous colors are so vibrant that you get immediate color payoff with one swipe, and they are appropriate for all skin types. The only problem is, we want them all!
Having tried other products from Urban Decay Cosmetics, we weren’t surprised that we would go absolutely bananas over their enormous new Vice Lipstick Collection. Come on, the in-store display alone will stop in your tracks and have every lipstick lover jumping for joy! Urban Decay definitely thought of everyone when creating the formulation of this lipstick. With six lip smacking finishes and one hundred color choices, there is plenty of variety for every complexion. Twenty of the shades are Sephora Exclusives. The six finish options are Mega Matte (super-intense matte), Comfort Matte (the creamiest matte), Cream (creamy luxury), Metallized (cream with a high level of pearl), Sheer (a punch of color with sheer shiny finish), and Sheer Shimmer (slightly transparent finish with floating pearl and a smooth texture). The ingredients of Aloe Vera, Jojoba, Avocado, Babassu Oil, and Vitamins C and E in this creamy formula hydrates and leaves lips super soft. The color payoff and pigment is grand (due to the brand’s Pigment Infusion System) and provides long lasting coverage. The application is easy as the lipstick glides on like a dream. From a dark and sexy bold look, to a soft and subtle pop of color (with everything in between), this collection will quickly become your new cult favorite!
Summer just got hotter with our collection of red lipstick. This powerful hue can quickly transform your look from a day at the office to Old Hollywood Glam in seconds! It’s a classic color that is bright, bold, and perfect to show off your fearless side. Reds can be worn by everyone, just take some time to find the correct shade to compliment your skin tone. With a softer more natural makeup look, any of our signature reds are sure to take center stage. Do you dare to wear red, because we do?!
Quick Tip: To keep lip color from traveling, try No Bleeding Lips Secret Lip Liner by Know Cosmetics. Your lip color will stay put!
The beauty of wearing a soft nude or pink lip is it can go with just about any makeup look. The lighter hues are easy to wear, fresh, and natural looking for the summer season. Play up your pout for an ultra sexy vibe by adding lip liner, or lipgloss, to the center of your lips. This creates a dimensional look, drawing attention to the lips. We love how a nude lip compliments a dramatic and smokey eye, which is one of Lauren’s favorite looks. If using mattes or long wearing lip products, remember to exfoliate and moisturize your lips for easy application. Soft nudes and pinks are simply a barely-there, classic color that will never go out of style!
