New Lipsticks

A look at my new peachy lipsticks...

I have recently been in a peachy lipstick phase. To begin my search for the perfect apricot-nude hue, I went to my favorite makeup shopping site ABH Cosmetics has a highly rated matte formula and a variety of colors to choose from. At $18 each, I added two matte shades to my cart including Peachy and Hollywood.  Peachy is a nude-peach matte formula that glides on the lips with full pigmentation.  Hollywood, though somewhat similar applies as more of a light peach when compared to Peachy.  On the more luxurious side, I opted for Wayne Goss Lipstick in Camellia which is a sheer cream formula.  The color is a light peachy-nude that has a lovely sheen to it while still allowing a hint of my natural lip color to come through.  The sleek black packaging looks expensive and costs quite a bit more than your average lipstick coming in at $28 each.  However, if you suffer from dry lips or matte formulas simply don't work for you I highly recommend this creamy goodness in a tube from Wayne Goss. 

While I do prefer a glossy lip these days, I still love a matte lipstick.  On days where I want added shine, I simply top my matte lipstick of choice with a matching gloss.  In the photo above, I am wearing ABH Cosmetics Matt Lipstick in Peachy topped with Sunny Day Lip Gloss from Burt's Bees (sheer shimmering peach). This combo definitely gave me that peachy vibe I was looking for!

In the above photo I am wearing ABH Lipstick in Hollywood, topped with Buxom gloss in Emily (light peachy nude plumping formula).  While the lip looks in both photos look quite similar, Hollywood is in fact a touch lighter in person and leans a bit more nude. 

I don't know what it is about summer, but I tend to lean toward nude, peach and lighter colored lip shades this time of year.  Perhaps it is because the eye looks I tend to wear this time of year pair well with a more subtle lip, or maybe it is to compliment the blue in my eyes. Regardless of the reason, I am quite happy I added these three lipsticks to my collection and have no doubt that I will continue to get a lot of wear out of all three tubes.
