Neutrogena came out with a lipstick line that might be one of my new go-to products.
I’ve been looking for a lipstick that doesn’t dry out my lips, but is highly pigmented — and affordable. It sound like I was trying to find the lipstick unicorn, right? Well, I have.
Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick is only $8.49, allowing you to update your summer look for less than a cocktail in Manhattan.
I keep six shades at the powder section of my desk at HelloBeautiful for the ladies in the office. I was looking for lipsticks that compliment the various shades of brown that we have here at HelloBeautiful and I’ve definitely found them.
Keyaira and I sampled five different lipsticks that look great on the both of us and will most likely look good on you, too! I’ve listed each shade below:
GO BOLD FOR SUMMER
A. Cherry Pink
During the summer, I always love rocking bright and bold colors. I tend to wear minimal makeup and don a bold lip to make a real “hot” statement. This Cherry Pink is a perfect way to update your red, unlike many reds with blue undertones, this one is not vampy, but rather more feminine.
F. Deep Plum
Who says you can’t go dark? Vampy looks are not only for the winter! Try this Deep Plum. You can transition it from day to night by adding on an extra layer.
KNOW YOUR NUDES
There is a nude lipstick for everyone. You just have to keep trying until you find it!
Pink Grapefruit looks great on all skin tones and serves as a fabulous “nude” with a little pink pigment to add a slight dimension to your look (and not wash out your face).
C. Berry Brown
Chocolate girls everywhere: this nude lipstick was made for you. ‘Nuff said.
E. Classic Nude
Classic Nude is a great color for light and medium skin-toned women. It also looks great on dark-skin woman, but is more like a light brown vs. a nude on your skin.
A moisturizing, highly pigmented lipstick that won’t break the bank? Yes, please! Don’t forget to check out Hello Live! to see these lip colors on various skin tones!
