Hey babes! Happy #NationalLipstickDay!
I’m a firm believer that every woman should have a lipstick on hand at all times, a red that she loves and a nude that makes her feel amazing. Lipstick absolutely elevates any look and makes me feel more powerful, sexy and in charge. After years of being a total lipstick hoarder, I’m sharing my favorites with you (including a couple that are 40% off TODAY only!)
I’m also breaking down my favorite lip care items to keep your lips feeling plump and soft (especially as we prep for the cold weather months ahead!) and sharing what’s in my cart from my favorite lipstick brand! Lastly, I’m sharing my top 3 tips for picking out the best lipsticks for you!

Lip Care Picks
What’s more important than finding the perfect shade of red? Taking care of the lips that are going to carry it. As I get older, I find it more important to treat my lips like the queens they are and invest in good lip care products to keep them soft, plump and glorious.

Tips for Finding the Perfect Lipstick
When it comes to finding the perfect lipstick, there’s a couple of things to keep in mind:
Swatch, swatch, swatch! Take advantage of swatching at stores like Sephora to test which colors are best for you!
Try new shades and brands! You’ll never know what works if you don’t give it a try! By trying different colors, you could surprise yourself and allow you to get out of your comfort zone. And different brands and types have different formulas that will feel right or wrong on your lips.
Do your research! There is a lot of good information in reviews, check them out before spending good money on a new lippie.
