Happy Early Valentine’s Day!!
There’s a time and place for glittered lips, and that time is definitely not while having ice cream on a first date on Valentine’s evening!
Here are my three lip color suggestions for you to wear on Valentine’s day according to your plans.
Date Night with your new beau:
MAC Lipstick in Kinda Sexy $17
MAC’s Kinda Sexy says it all in the name. It’s a peachy rose nude that comes in a matte finish. If you’re planning on giving your date a goodnight kiss, you wanna go with something that isn’t going to make a mess all over both of your faces. A matte is a safe choice. I like this color for a somewhat “first date” or just on a regular day basis. It’s somewhat natural and it’s “kinda sexy” without trying too hard. It has a great amount of pigment, glides on easily, and doesn’t dry out your lips. It’s also long lasting, which is great for an evening out!
Date Night with your love:
NYX Liquid Suede in Kitten Heels $7
This color is a classic bright red. I like the idea of going with something bold for a date night with your other half, especially if you don’t normally have one-on-one date nights, like us newbie parents. We aren’t youngins so you probably won’t catch us making out in a movie theatre… Regardless, something that dries as a matte or a “suede” is still my best bet for a date night. Our date nights usually consist of a lot of food, and I’d like a lip color that’s going to stay on through our meal, desserts, and drinks. This color dries on quickly and is easy to apply, aside from the thin applicator. It’s a cream lipstick so it’s actually quite moisturizing!
Date Night with your girls:
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bambi $20
Bambi is such a fun color! It’s the perfect color to wear when you’re out having a fun night with your girl friends. It’s an extremely pigmented “vivid hot pink”, but because it’s so pigmented you have to apply in even directions because it sometimes seems to not apply evenly. Just a small price to pay for this incredible color, it’s definitely worth it. I have a few liquid lipsticks and lipsticks that are similar in color, but nothing that works quite right for an up all night evening. It has blue undertones, which I prefer in my hot pinks for evenings. This neon pink reminds me of Barbie, and if you’re anything like me, that’s a good thing! It’s long lasting and also a matte, perfect for drinks or binge eating and binge netflixing, lol somewhat kidding.
Whatever your plans are for Valentine’s day, whether you’re spending it on a date, with family, with friends, or working, look your best and celebrate love. Love God, love your family, and love yourself!
