Favorite Daily Lipsticks

I’m a Snapchat girl and prefer it over IG Stories. I’m slowly doing more IG Stories with requests from readers, but I feel like Snapchat is eating dinner with your boyfriend and IG Stories is comparable to eating dinner with your boyfriend’s family for the first time. One is relaxed and comfortable and one is nerve wracking. I know familiar screen names on Snap and don’t mind showing my humor and making fun of myself. I’m working on doing IG stories more, but it’s a process! 😉

Enough of my Snapchat soapbox, my most common question I receive on Snap is, “What lipstick are you wearing?” I thought I’d do a post to cover the 4 different lipsticks I’m wearing 9 out of 10 times. Unless you see me with a crazy coral shade [which is never] I’m wearing one of these!

Here’s the lipstick breakdown:

My three favorite lipstick brands are Stila, Charlotte Tilbury and MAC. Stila is my favorite for lip liners and liquid lipsticks, I love CT for moisturizing shades that provide great pigment and MAC is the original love in my makeup bag.

1. Red: Charlotte Tibury Kiss ‘N’ Tell Liner with Stila Beso Lipstick

2. Nude: Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Liner with Charlotte Tilbury Kim K W Lipstick

3. Pink: MAC Soar Liner with MAC Snob Lipstick

4. Mauve: Stila Pink Moscato Liner with Stila Perla Lipstick

Want to see some examples? Here’s some blog posts/IG photos with each lipstick look!





What’s your go-to lipstick?!

  3. My favs are MAC in creme cup, YSL #7 and NARS Audacious in Anabella. I will have to try the CT color. I’ve heard a lot of great things about those lipsticks!!

    Stila Perla all day every day! I also really like Kat Von D’s studded lipstick in Love Craft. Similar color to Perla, just a wee bit more on the mauve side, long lasting, and fades into a really pretty color that looks so natural. I also really love Too Faced Pure Peach lip oil. Smells and tastes like peaches and it is a nice break from the matte lips (or it’s awesome to put over matte lips). Buxom White Russian lip gloss and Sydney lip liner are amazing! Perfect pinks:)

    While these shades and combos might not necessarily work for my skin and undertones, I absolutely love the layout of this post and the photos are stunning (silly to say about lipsticks but true). You and Angie did such a great job!

  8. Such a great post, Katey! Love seeing the lipsticks and liners by themselves, and then on you. I’ve been following you for a couple of years and you inspired me to start my own blog. Love how honest, genuine, relatable and classy you are. Keep doing you girl! You inspire so many women <3

    Totally 100% agree about Snapchat! I’m so sad that some people have stopped using it! At the end of the day when I’m checking Snapchat stories, you’re probably the number one person whose Snapchat story I look for!

    MAC Diva and Stila Baci which I’m pretty sure I have seen you wear a few times. I need to try Perla. It doesn’t look quite as purple. Love this post!

    Love these lipsticks! Thank you for sharing. I’m definitely going to have to try the nude lip.

    Have you tried Brave lipstick by MAC with Spice by MAC lip liner? It is the perfect light pink/mauve look as well that would look darling on you 🙂

    Hope you have a great Sunday! xo
