Hey twenties! I wanted to share with you guys the lip colors I have absolutely been dying over lately. They aren’t specifically fall themed, but we make our own rules right? These are just the lippies I have had in constant rotation lately and can’t get enough of. I have swatches on my arm and against a white background because these colors will take on different looks based on the pigmentation of your lips. Let me know what your lippie faves are!

Gerard Cosmetics Color Your Smile Lipgloss in Buttercream $24

This is the only lipgloss in my current faves because it is the only lipgloss I have been using for the past two months! This is the child of the beauty guru genius Jaclyn Hill. If you haven’t checked out her YouTube Tutorials you are seriously missing out in life. She is one of my favorite top 5 YouTube gurus! It has a sweet scent and goes on as the perfect opaque pinky nude. And guess what? It doesn’t move! It lasts forever. I love this gloss for a night out with the girls. It even has a handy mirror and light built in for you to reapply wherever and whenever! It’s very moisturizing and perfect for blending with any pink or nude lipstick you want to put underneath. It is the ultimate multitasker (hertip: Check out Jaclyn’s YT videos, she usually has an awesome discount code in the description box of her videos for Gerard Cosmetics)


Gerard Cosmetics 1995 Lipstick $19

This is another child of Jaclyn Hill… you get the obsession now right? It is a brown toned mauvey pink nude (what a mouthful). This lipstick is totally on trend with the Kylie Jenner lip craze. It also is the perfect 90’s lipstick to go with all of your 90’s themed outfits that are making a comeback. This lipstick is goes on matte and creamy. Matte lipsticks can be a tad drying so it’d be a good idea to apply lip balm first. This lipstick is a perfect everyday color that can go with almost any eye style.

This Chanel lipstick has also been an everyday favorite. It goes on a little sheer but I tend to pack mine on to make the perfect color. It’s like my lips, but 50,000 times better! This lipstick has micro sized shimmers that make your lips look so full and healthy. It’s a splurge but I can’t live without it! This is my go to lipstick if I don’t know what else to wear. It’s not the longest lasting but I don’ t mind reapplying.

My drugstore beauty! This lipstick goes on soooooo creamy and smooth. It is a slightly more pink version of the Gerard Cosmetics 1995. So if you don’t want to go super dark to achieve the Kylie Jenner or 90’s lip trend this is perfect for you. It stays on pretty long but the color can bleed so I suggest pairing this with a lip liner especially!

This is my golden child. I am a huge fan of smokey eyes, and what better to pair with a smokey eye than this darling lipstick. I don’t even know where to begin. It is the PERFECT baby pink nude for my lips. It goes on creamy and leaves your lips perfectly moisturized. It has a sweet scent as well and an opaqueish finish, which you can build up. I love pairing this with the Gerard cosmetics Buttercream, you would think they were made for each other. I can’t say enough about this.
