My last post showed how I organized all my lipsticks and lip glosses. I had several emails asking which lip colors were my favorites. I was even asked to do a post on my favorites, so that is what I am doing today.

First, let me say I know all colors will look different on everyone. I have golden undertones in my skin. My hair is light brown with gold highlights and I have green eyes with lots of gold in them. My lips actually have a bit of blue undertone to them. I usually look for lip color with a pink/ brown undertone since I prefer a natural look. I will use different colors on an occasion when what I am wearing calls for a brighter or darker color. I am giving you this information in hopes it will make your own evaluation of lip color a bit easier.

My Go-To lipstick is very neutral on me. I would describe it as a browned base pink. This is the lipstick that I keep in the make-up bag I carry in my purse at all times.
Estee Lauder’s Rose Tea:
estee-lauder-pure-color-lipstick-rose-tea2881You can find this at any department store that carries Estee Lauder. I usually go to my local Macy’s or Nordstrom's. You can also find it HERE. It retails for $23.

When I am wearing neutrals and want a bronzie look I will grab Revlon Moondrops Bamboo Bronze.

Of all the lipsticks that I have used over the years I think the lip colors by Bobbi Brown are over all the best colors for the look I like. I go for a more natural fresh look, and her colors have never disappointed me. They also don’t change color once they are applied. I have always had trouble with colors going orange on me, but Bobbi Brown’s stay true to the color that is applied. Each tube will cost $23
Here is the link to her lip color collections.
E100_lI highly recommend that you go into a store and try on the different colors. I usually go for a Brown with a pink undertone such as her color Brownie.

The colors I wear in the Bobbi Brown line are:
Roseberry: A darker rose/pink for when I need more color with a pop. I will usually wear this when going out at night.
Burnt Sugar: Another good bronze/nude color for that sun kissed look.
Kir: On the dark side for me but when I am wearing darker colors for evening this is a stunning neutral color, plum/brown.

I put one lip gloss over all of the above colors in every brand, and that is my all time favorite, Go-To lip gloss:
Lipstick 012 (800x600)Every person that I have recommended this color too, has purchased it and loves it!!  The cost is $22.
This is Lilac sugar. It makes any lip color look better. It will give a sort of opalescence shimmer. It is glossy without being frosted looking. It stays on better than any lip gloss I have tried and I highly recommend any of Bobbi Browns lip glosses. You can find it HERE!

I hope this helps you all in finding your perfect lip color!!

One of my readers recommended Chanels All Day Color Wand gloss. I am going to check it out. If I buy some I will let you know how it works for me.
