Favorite Lipsticks & A Coupon Code

Lately I've been obsessed with lipstick and have found a few shades that I wear all the time. Right now I go back and forth between MAC lipstick and Revlon. The MAC tubes run about $16 each but the Revlon are right at $5. If you aren't too excited about spending $16 on a tube of lipstick, read on to see how you can get similar shades for less.

When I'm wanting a pink shade, I usually go back and forth between MAC's Please Me, and Candy Yum-Yum. Please Me is a nice muted shade of pink while Candy Yum-Yum is an electric shade. 

I recently just picked up a pretty pink shade from Target for $5. It's called 'Pink Cloud' by Revlon and it goes on super sheer and feels like a lip gloss. If you want a subtle shade for less, check your local Target store.

Pink Cloud at Target - $5

Maybeline's Fuschia Flash - $5.50 - Identical to Candy Yum-Yum

When I'm not wearing pink, I'm alternating between MAC's Morange and Revlon's Fire and Ice. Once again there is a more affordable option for this bright orange if you are looking for one. 

I recently picked up Revlon's Siren thinking it would be a nice sheer orange that I could wear over my MAC Morange for a bit of shine. I was surprised to see that it was almost identical. It goes on matte with a strong bright look just like Morange. So if you are looking for a nice bright inexpensive lipstick, get Siren. The pictures that I found online don't look anything what it looks like in person. It definitely is identical to Morange.

  1. I have never really worn lipstick - can you believe that?! I need to start out slow so I am going to pick up that Revlon pink. Thanks for the tips! Susan

  2. I was NOT a fan of the orange at first but I found this really cool orange and now I am obsessed!

  3. I always wear gloss instead of lipstick. I feel like no matter what shade of lipstick I try, I feel like it looks weird on me! Maybe I'm just not used to it.

  4. I'm so into brights and oranges right now! I could wear everything you posted! Though I'm with Sharon in that I do tend to veer towards glosses before actual lipstick! I'm trying to change that though! Carylee |

  5. I'm also into very bright pink lipcolors lately and I'm so happy using either Wet N Wild Mega Last in Cherry Picking or L'Oreal Vivids in Fearless Fuschia!!


  6. I love wearing bold lip colors, but it's hard to find one that doesn't dry out my lips.
