Drug Store Liquid Lipsticks I Love

go here I was a little late to the punch when it comes to wearing makeup, so I by no means claim to be any sort of a beauty guru. However, I now dabble in makeup enough to know my way around Sephora, and I’m constantly trying to learn more. I keep a relatively low-key makeup routine on a day-to-day basis, but I love adding a pop of color via a great lipstick.

I love that they apply like a gloss, but set like a lipstick. I especially love matte colors; I think they’re young, fun, and I just love that they’re not shiny. I’ve been picking up liquid matte lipsticks like it’s my job, so today I’m recapping five colors that have been in heavy rotation. They are all available at drug stores (Walgreens, CVS, Target) as well as online; I’ll review each one and share my thoughts.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Cannes

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Cannes

Okay, so I’ll start with the positive. I love that NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes is so easy to apply. It sets in about 5 minutes, and it has a true matte look. I like the color, but its doesn’t apply evenly. I find that often have to go through 2 or 3 coats of application before I am pleased with the evenness and coloring. All in all, I’d recommend this color — just not when you’re in a rush. 😉

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Monte Carlo

.NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Monte Carlo

NYX’s Soft Lip Cream in Monte Carlo is a bit less appealing for me. Once again, it applies unevenly, and I’m just not in love with the color. I wear this lipstick occasionally, but overall this one is a pass. FYI: My favorite classic red lip a la Taylor Swift is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Liner in Cruella.

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid – Berry Boost

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid - Berry Boost

Maybelline’s Vivid Matte Liquid lipsticks come in awesome colors, but I’ve noticed they’re not truly matte. After trying this color on for the first time and giving it over a half hour to set, I realized it just wasn’t gonna happen. Since then, I’ve begun gently patting my lips once I apply it, that way some of the sheen disappears. The Berry Boost color isn’t my favorite, but I take it out on the town every once in a while.

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid – Possessed Plum

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid - Possessed Plum

I love love LOVE this color. I never thought I would’ve enjoyed a vampy look on myself as much as I do, but Possessed Plum is probably my favorite lip color at the moment. I have to pat this one a bit as well, since it doesn’t truly set into a matte finish either, but I love the hue so much that I deal with it. My only other complaint would be that it makes my lips feel really tingly when I apply it (so does the Berry Boost), so that must have to do with something in their formula. Because I love this color so much, I highly recommend — especially as we head into fall and winter!

Wet n’ Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color – Looking For Truffle

Wet n' Wild Velvet Matte Lip Color - Looking For Truffle

Wet n’ Wild’s Velvet Matte Lip Colors are so darn affordable, I can’t help but grab a handful whenever I’m feeling like expanding my collection of drug store lipsticks. I love that Looking For Truffle is a light, natural color. It is really easy to apply and goes on smooth. My only complaint is that the lipsticks constantly break after a use or two. Even at such a low price point, that’s extremely frustrating. But alas, I keep buying them anyways…I just can’t stop Looking For Truffle. 😉

Must Have Monday: Cozy Home Goods

I’ve accepted the fact that no matter how much I moan and groan about the cooler weather, winter is around the corner. So I have whipped out my North Faces and UGGs, and I even bought a pair of gloves today.

On top of the cold weather gear I stock up on (thanks to our brutal winters), I also feel the need to make my home extra cozy as well! Shag rugs, soft blankets, and cozy decor all make a home feel extra warm. When you’re stuck inside because of below-zero temperatures or a blizzard, trust me: you’ll want your home to feel as comfy as possible!

While I don’t talk about home decor here much (…I’d much rather style clothing than furniture haha), I can’t help but share some of my Must Haves to add coziness to a living space when the temps get bitter. Here are some odds and ends that I’ve been eyeing in order to add some more warmth to my space as the days grow shorter and colder.

Flannels Under Fifty

It’s flannel season, for better or worse. (In my case, it’s for worse because I have no desire for winter to be right around the corner.) While I definitely love fall style, I am already missing my summer wardrobe filled with bright colors, classic shift dresses, skater skirts, scalloped shorts, and cropped tops. Not to mention, dressing for fall seems to take so much more effort than summer. Layers, layers, and more layers. (I’m always cold so yes, multiple layers are necessary.)

Complaining aside, I do mean it when I say I love fall style. So as I’m preparing to transition my wardrobe to apparel fit for cooler temps, I’m eyeing pieces that I need to pick up before the temperatures get consistently lower. A great fall staple that everyone should have a few of in their closet are cute flannels! Flannels are comfortable, versatile, and can be layered for fall and winter, then pared down for spring and summer. The one thing I always keep in mind when deciding whether to purchase a flannel is how comfortable it is; some flannels are thin, rigid, or just downright uncomfortable. My favorite flannels are soft, warm, and cozy. But beyond that, your options are endless. From full-sleeves to 3/4 sleeves and from traditional plaid to Buffalo check, there are so many ways you can embrace flannel this season.

My three favorite flannels so far are here, here, and here. But I’ve linked up a ton of solid options — from classic to trendy — below. And the best part is they are all under $50!
