My Three Favorite Lipsticks

April 13, 2012

I don’t know why it took me this long, but I’ve decided I’m done with cheap-o lipsticks. Every time I try to buy cheaper lipstick in order to save money, the plan ends up backfiring on me. Cheap lipstick either feels weird and waxy, tastes funny, has color that doesn’t last very long, or all of the above.

So what happens? I end up throwing the lipstick away after only using it a few time — I might as well throw the $10 bill straight into the trash can.

A few months ago I decided to buy the Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Color in “Gabrielle” on a whim. It is now my new favorite color and will probably be the first lipstick I don’t throw away before it’s used up. After this experience, I’m convinced that with lipstick you really do get what you pay for. Here are my top three favorite picks:

Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Color – $32.50
Giorgio Armani ‘Rouge d’Armani’ Lipstick – $30
Dior ‘Rouge Dior’ Lip Color – $32

Why are these three lipstick my favorite? I love them because they glide on effortlessly and feels really soft on my lips. But mostly I love these lipstick because they contain lip stain, so not only do they last longer, they also fade really beautifully.
