Steal VS Splurge : The Best Lipsticks of the Summer !

Steal 







Don't let the budget friendly price tag ($4.99-$6.99 varies on drugstore locations)  fool you on the quality of this collection of lip colors.  This is one of the most highly pigmented formulas I own ( high end colors included!). You really are getting a high quality of color which lasts throughout the day with minimal need for reapplying.  Colors : 110 -  is a pretty coral shade I love it against my skin tone - it has been a favorite of mines for this summer. 107 - a deep purple / wine shade which is going to transition perfectly into fall looks , I love the idea of breaking seasonal rules and going dark on the lips during the summer. 04- Is my only non-Matte selection which is a classic shade of red - red is timeless.

I know this isn't the clearest picture... bare with me ! Isn't this a lovely pink ??! 

Last but not least, there is 102 - a barbie pink shade , its so pretty on - definitely a MUST for the lipstick lovers!!! I am in absolute LOVE with 102 and 110 - a must for all skin types!

I have REALLY taken a liking to Smashbox Cosmetics Be Legendary lipsticks ! Not because I have been reviewing the brand for some time now but this is QUALITY color!  This line is a Pro Favorite for a reason!  

Again.. excuse the pixels ... errrr

Electric Pink ( Pictured, above paired with NARS lip liner in "Amazon")  is a VERY vibrant Matte pink, while Infared is the quintessential red Matte shade. It is oh so sexy.  Although for some odd reason it is photographing like a red, Mandarin is a pretty orange- my other hot go-to for the summer season. Last but not least Pink Petal is my Luxe pick for a Barbie candy pink!  Priced at $20 each, these lippies are worth EVERY PENNY ! 

Whether you choose to Splurge or Steal .. you will be walking away with an AMAZING lip !!!!
