If I had to choose my favorite type of makeup product, it would probably be anything lip-related. Lipsticks, glosses, stains, balms, tints—you name it; I’ll wear it. More often than not, my go-to makeup look is a few swipes of mascara, minimal concealer, some blush, and a bold lip. I like to let my lip product take the stage because it can always be a dramatic look, but it’s low-effort.
I have a rotating list of lipsticks that I use, but recently I decided to apply an $8 Maybelline lipstick instead of my usual $30 favorite for wedding, and I got the most delightful surprise of my life. I was raking in the compliments that night. People were telling me they loved my lip color, asking me where I got it from and then saying, “Oooh!” when I told them it was from the drugstore. And I’m not going to lie. I loved the attention. (It’s my Leo Moon I think.)
