My Favorite Long-Lasting Lip Color of All Time (and a Bargain Swap You Must Try)

Bold Lip Colors

Bold is Beautiful

Bold lip colors are my jam (proof in the photos above). I wear them often, so finding lipstick, lip pencil and lip crayon formulas that really stay put are a favorite past time. Especially now that I have fine lines showing up around my mouth — a result of drinking out of a straw all the time (a habit I’ve recently kicked).

Bold Lips Rule the 2015 SAG Awards Red Carpet

Best Bold Lips SAG Awards 2015Sunday night’s SAG Awards were all about bold lips (and ponytails, but that’s a story for another time). Paired with an otherwise fresh face or soft smoldering eye, these stunning lipstick shades are a surefire way to turn heads. Try one. I promise you’ll agree. Here are my five favorite bold lips of the night with scoop from these starlets’ makeup artists on the exact lip products used to create them.

Reese Witherspoon: Lips by makeup artist Molly R. Stern 

Stern used Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Cocoa as a base and brightened it up by applying Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Orchid Pink (launches March 2015) over top. For an “added punch,” she applied another hue: Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Vermillion Red (also out in March) to the center of her lips. She finished the look with Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Black Cherry to give Witherspoon’s lips “depth and sheen.”

Lupita Nyong’o: Lips by makeup artist Nick Barose

Barose coated Nyong’o’s lips with Lancome Le Crayon LipContour in Garnet followed by Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor in Caprice and Kiehl’s Scented Lip Balm #1 in Cranberry.

Laura Carmichael: Lips by makeup artist Lauren Andersen

Andersen applied Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Poppy Love to create Carmichael’s classic red pout.

Rosamund Pike: Lips by makeup artist Melanie Inglessis

Inglessis created Pike’s matte red lip with longevity in mind. “I used Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil #25C Orange Red to line the lips and filled in with CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Pétillante.”

Emma Stone: Lips by makeup artist Rachel Goodwin

Goodwin created Stone’s much talked about red lips using Revlon HD Ultra Lip Shine in Gladiolus. Looks like I have yet another Revlon HD lipstick shade to try. Still loving this one.

Recreate Jennifer Hudson's Matte Pink Pout

My favorite beauty look seen on the People’s Choice Awards red carpet tonight? Jennifer Hudson’s matt pink lips. They were statement making and totally flawless. This look proves that with the simple swipe of a matte, shocking pink lip color you can make heads turn. To get a similar look, I’d recommend using Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Corvina, $24. Pair it with otherwise neutral makeup hues and you, too, will garner some serious compliments.
