New Fall Lipsticks


Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons, and this year is extra special because we're finally back "home" in DC. I love to usher in the the colder months with a new lip, and with several new launches this year I couldn't pick just one.

The Nude Gloss

Big surprise, this is my favorite.  The gorgeous gloss from Bluemercury CEO Marla Beck's new makeup line Lune+Aster is creamy, offers great coverage, and is not sticky or goopy at all.


These glosses are good for you and for the environment, and come with empowering titles like CEO and Soccer Mom - I chose the shade PhD.


The Fancy One

Pat McGrath is one of the greatest makeup artists of all time, and I was so excited to get my hands on one of her launches.


Sorry, it's not a great picture of the product...let's talk about the fact that the lipstick comes in a package of PINK SEQUINS. The lipstick is pretty exciting, too. I purchased the color Flesh 1, and even though it's matte, it slides on beautifully and has a satin finish - it's also long-wearing.


Subtle Pop of Color

Many a beauty editor raved about the new Yves Saint Laurent Vynyl Cream, and the color 404 Nude Pulse is lovely.


It's not nude in the sense that it makes your lips look like your skin, but it's very neutral while still adding a pop of color. This is super long-wearing, and has a velvet consistency that lies somewhere between lipstick and lip gloss. Definitely worth the splurge.



With the exception of the Lune+Aster gloss, I usually apply a lip liner for definition and contour but wanted to show these lipsticks in their natural state.
