If you love: ultra-shine lip gloss
Trust Fund Beauty Lipgasm Lipgloss in Pretentious Pout
Pretentious Pout can only be described as a lip smackers-esque level of glittery shine that sits atop the girliest of pinks. The exact shade is practically identical to MAC's "Pink Nouveau" (my favorite lipglass of all time) and long-wearing shine and subtle sparkle are just 90's enough to be nostalgic without crossing over into childish territory.
If you love: perfect everyday lipstick
Finding Ferdinand Creamy Lipstick in A Glamorous Revelation
If you want something done right do it yourself, right? Instead of continuing my endless search for the perfect shade of pink lipstick, I just went to Finding Ferdinand and created my own custom color. You can create absolutely any lipstick shade you want and with FF's new minis you can order several different blends of colors before picking your favorite. Literally all you need is two minutes and $6 and you can have your own custom shade of lipstick sent straight to your door.
If you love: long-wearing matte lipstick
Kylie Jenner Lip Kit in Posie K
Despite the ongoing battle between Kylie Jenner's Lip Kits and Colour Pop's affordable dupes, I still maintain the ideology that I support brands and business(wo)men rather than faceless companies and mass marketing machines so getting a Lip Kit was always a no brainer for me. The formula is almost perfect (it's a little too drying, but aren't all matte liquid lipsticks?), the color is great as a mature alternative to my typical baby doll pinks, and it is the most long-wearing lip product I've ever used in my life. After hours of swimming around in the pool and a day full of talking, sweating, and lip rubbing there's barely a smudge on my lips. Easy application + everlasting wear + wearable color = my liquid lipstick dreams
