Beauty Talk Tuesday // My Top Five Lip Colors

Morning loves! It’s Beauty Talk Tuesday and today i’m tackling one of my most asked questions…”what are you wearing on your lips”? I have a handful of lip colors I SWEAR by so today i’m sharing my top five products I can’t do without!


If you girls have been following along for awhile you probably already know that my Mac Velvet Teddy + Stripdown Liner combo is just that lip I can’t quit! It’s pretty much is what i’m wearing on all my blog pictures (wearing in both of the above photos) because it goes with everything! It’s super flattering on most skin tones and just gives your lips that natural but elevated look! If you havent tried it yet definitely check it out!


Can you tell I have a type?! 😉

I love a bold lip but for everyday wear these are my no brainer go to colors.

Velvet Teddy is definitely my most used color but sometimes I will switch it up and wear YASH or TAUPE . If i’m going for a little more pink I will wear Kinda Sexy. I pretty much pair all of them with Stripdown liner because it seems to go with everything and is my absolute favorite!

I just started wearing This Matte Darker Lip in “Hollywood BLVD” and really love it! I’ll be honest, it kind of gives you that feeling that it’s wearing off and you go to reapply only to realize it hasn’t budged. It’s a little bizarre but I love the color and it literally lasts all night long. It comes in a set of 5 and has some fun matte colors if you are looking for  bolder lip colors.


I have never really been a big gloss person. I definitely gravitate towards a more matte lip and for everyday errands I am a chapstick and lipliner kind of gal. Here are my 5 most used lipliners….

Stripdown Lipliner (top of my list obviously 😉

NYX Natural 

(NYX is killing it in the budget friendly department!)

NYX Nude Beige

Mac In Control (love this one for more of a pink lip)

Urban Decay Stark Naked 

(the perfect all around color and LOVVVVE Urban Decay lipliner. The consistency is so moisturizing I feel like I could just wear them alone)

and Urban Decay Naked2

If you’re looking for more of a nude lipliner

I just saw the other day that Mac started pairing up lipsticks +liners and love that! It takes all the guess work out of it and also think they are a little cheaper than buying them separately. Here are a few I have my eye on…

I love that the middle has a gloss included too.

I know it’s so easy to get stuck in a Mac rut because they have such a great color selection but I think i’m going to start venturing out and try a few other brands. What’s your favorite go to lip color or brand!

    1. Hi hun its actually the liquid liner by NYC that I LOVE. Although i think it is a little harder for beginners with that one bc the tip isn’t as firm. I first started with the liquid liner from mac and found that brush to be much easier. Hope this helps xo

  1. Hi Andee! Love all of these lip combos! Thanks so much for sharing! Another question, would you happen to remember where you got the blush, off the shoulder top you had in the second picture of you sitting on the curb? I love it!

  2. I love your lip colors but I love that perfect lavender/pink shirt more. Where is it from? And what eye shadow are you wearing? I’ve been looking for that shade forever!

  3. I know you are building and just started following your “forever home” board, and was wondering if you are struggling with kitchen cabinet color? We too are building, break ground next month, and I am torn between grey and white. I love grey, but fear it’s too trendy and was curious if you were struggling too. What color appliances did you go with, that is the first things we’ve been told we have to choose. It’s scary!

    1. hi love sorry just saw this noW! Im struggling in a few areas but the cabinet colors are pretty much the one thing i have locked down lol. We are going with a really dark charcoal gray.
