Style | My Five Holy Grail Lipsticks


Lipstick used to scare me. Until recently I wouldn’t wear it in public. I loveddddd how lipsticks looked, but I didn’t feel confident wearing it. I really really really wanted to wear lipstick so I pretty much forced myself to wear it. Now I’m lipstick obsessed and I have FIVE holy grail lipsticks. I’ve come a long way ;).

The perfect lipstick shade is hard to find. After a ton of testing and recommendations, I eventually figured out what I wanted in a lipstick. Coincidentally, all are pretty similar — diff shades of rosy nude and deep red. Here are my five holy grail lipsticks:


{ Swatches left to right: Diva, Whirl, Lolita, City, Meow }

My Five Holy Grail Lipsticks

1. MAC Matte Lipstick “Diva”

Diva’s one of my favorite dark lipsticks! This deep red lipstick makes me feel vampy and diva-ish. I pair this lipstick with MAC Burgundy Lipliner. I’m wearing “Diva” in the photo above!

Shop it: Mac Matte Lipstick “Diva”, $17

2. MAC Matte Lipstick “Whirl”

Whirl is THE lipstick that turned me into a lipstick lover. I didn’t really wear lipstick until I met Whirl.  This rosy toned nude is totally a Kylie Jenner kind of lipstick. When IDK what lippie to wear,  I wear Whirl.

3. Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick “Lolita”

Lolita is a cult favorite nude lipstick. It’s perfectly described as a matte dusty rose. I especially love Lolita in the spring and summer. Sooo pretty!

4. Winky Lux Lip Velour “City”

City is another favorite dark lippie! This lipstick has a deep plum tone. Just like Diva, it gives vampy vibes. I’m completely obsessed with this pretty color. You may have seen me wear it on this post about teeth. I’m wearing City below!

5. Winky Lux Lip Velour “Meow”

Meow is one of Winky Lux’s best sellers. It’s a super pigmented pink-nude matte lipstick. It’s flattering and easy to match your outfits to.
