5 lippies i'm loving right now...

you may have noticed that it's all about the lips right now. no matter your preference, it's summer, so experimenting is completely allowed. bright, glossy, bold, matte; neutral, pink, purple, orange, red

the following lippies are fabulous and i think you would love them as well. take a look...

City Lips
these lippies are a gloss-but-better {each is actually a treatment for your lips that you can wear anytime ~ including to bed ~ for added lip-pampering benefits}! they offer high shine without stickiness and a fuller-lip look without sting. i already have naturally full lips, so i don't really see much of a difference in the plumping department, but the high shine does offer a fabulous illusion. the smell and texture are truly beautiful and, unlike some glosses, these beauties never leave my pout dried out hours later.

Palladio Herbal Lip Lacquer
these bold, bright shades you see are amazing both in color and finish. the creamy texture keeps my lips smooth, glossy and they blend beautifully with other lip products. vitamin E helps to hydrate and protect from free-radical damage while coconut and sunflower oils aid in nourishing by forming a protective layer to prevent water loss in the delicate lip area.

NYC City Proof Twistable Intense Lip Color
not quite a lipstick, not quite a gloss, these creamy lippies have a pleasant, slightly vanilla scent that delivers a gorgeous color payoff. while these aren't super long-wearing, they last longer than typical glosses. i love that the color is buildable and the crayon form makes it easy to line the lips a bit before filling them in. 

Lacqa & Co Fat Lip Pencil
this smooth, buttery lip pencil is called Lambchop {pictured with one of the brand's nail polishes called Bobby Dazzler} and  it's an overachiever! it coats lips in stunning color like a lipstick and the finish is slightly matte; it's long-wearing and is the perfect pink to suits many skintones. i love the packaging, too. fyi, all LAQA & Co's packages are designed by up and coming designers, with a percentage of the product profits going directly to the artist. love it!

Essence Longlasting Lipstick
bright shades are definitely hot for summer, but i love a low-key look year round. these shades, Dare to Be Nude and Wear Berries! are great for grab-and-go application {no mirror required!}, feel fabulous and have been uber-pampering on my lips.

what lipsticks and glosses are you loving right now?
