ACPR Loves: Lippies
Introducing our new blog series: ACPR Loves, where your friendly neighborhood girl gang will be sharing our current obsessions! Looking for product recommendations or what we think you should buy next? You’ve come to the right place.
Today we’re talking lippies. There’s nothing better than finding the perfect product – you know, the one that turns you into a total *badass* with a simple swipe. Lips have a magical way of tying your whole look together. Whether you’re wanting to go bold, play it low-key, or rock something in between, there’s a color for that. If you haven’t found your go-to lip yet, we’ve curated a list of our tried & true favorites. Get your credit cards ready, girls: it’s shopping time.
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick – Tryst
“My day-to-day lippie is Snitch, but after searching for it, I learned that it’s been discontinued. SAD NEWS. I do just so happen to have another new favorite, Tryst, a warm coral cream that screams “I’m fun!” I plan on rocking it all summer long, and probably into the fall, because I’m a rule breaker like that.”
Milk Makeup Lip Vinyl – Facts
“A good lipstick is basically the modern day equivalent of the power suit, and this Lip Vinyl from Milk is my current fave. It’s the perfect mix between a lipstick and gloss, and despite it’s shiny appearance, it doesn’t budge easily (even after eating lunch).”
NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil – Stiletto
“This is my go-to whenever I want a bold lip. It’s super easy to throw into my bag for touchups throughout the day, the orange-undertoned, vibrant red perfectly compliments my fair skin and red hair, and I love the non-drying matte finish – especially for when I want to blur out the edges! The fact that it’s vegan and cruelty-free is just the icing on the cake.”
Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick – Sheer Rapture and BUXOM Plumpline Lip Liner – Dolly Danger
“I’m going to be a rule breaker and share two of my favorites, because they’re just that good. I apply the liner all over, as I still believe it is the 90s and have been wearing liner since high school, and then apply lipstick! This combo goes with EVERYTHING in my closet! It stays on from the school drop off lane, through my daily live video conference calls, and my favorite time, happy hour with a girlfriend!”
Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm – Grandest Grape
“The Clinique Chubby Stick in Grandest Grape has been my go-to year after year. This buildable lip color begins as a sheer balm and can be transformed for greater impact with more application. Its versatility also translates into its actual wearability, meaning its moisturizing enough for all seasons and sets perfectly when primed and lined.”
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick – Dolce Vita
“I’ve tried a lot of lippies in my days, but my world changed when this came into my life. The color covers all the bases – the perfect pink with a touch of purple means I can rock it when I’m feeling edgy or girly. Plus, the SMELL is so. good. It sounds weird, but trust me… you’ll want to take a sniff. The best part is that it (truly) stays on all day and isn’t crumbly – hallelujah!”
