Pro Longwear Lipcreme (MAC)


Let it be known that whenever I want to cheer myself after a particularly hard day, I will treat myself to a MAC lipstick, and I never, ever regret it. Thankfully, I don’t have TOO many hard days, but somehow, I do have quite a few stunning shades of this Pro Longwear Lipcreme, so go figure; I may be lurking around my local MAC store after the good days too 🙂
There are just way too many delicious shades, with a good balance of staying power and creaminess. Definitely in my Lipstick Hall of Fame… which I may have to start in my apartment, at the rate my collection is growing…

Cubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm

Oh, the conundrum of the lip STICK. The moisturizing formulas keep the lips supple and smooth, but any hint of color is gone after your first Americano, and the formulas with a heavier concentration of color dry the hizzle out of your kisser. Clinique’s Chubby Stick (what a name…) Moisturizing Lip Balm strikes a fairly even balance, with a nice, creamy texture, and color that MIGHT get you through your second Starbucks run. (Mega Melon FTW!)


Not every piece in Lush’s Emotional Brilliance color line are winners. (Look at “Lifted”. Then, look away.) And not all the colors go on very well. However, Perspective, a lip (and cheek!) color wins all around. Great texture, vegan, looks amazing on everyone.
True story– I was on a business trip and forgot my makeup bag (HORRORS!!). I got through the week with this color from Lush, a BB cream from Cover Girl, and a concealer from MAC. (Don’t worry, I went back to being the high maintenance PW you know and love the next week 🙂
