I shopped my stash today and was delighted to use a daring red lipstick. I chose the NXY lip cream because it is an absolutely gorgeous color but one I wouldn't normally wear during the day but I was so tired this morning and needed something other than coffee as a pick me up. What better than a red lip cream?

Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Medium
I adore this color! It's actually not as loud as it looks when first applied. It really tones down significantly once it's "dried". I like that it's a pretty raspberry-ish color that's not super bright but gives enough color to warm the face. Also, I never knew i'd like matte colors so much but I do.
It's summer here and I can't seem to tan so a lot of lip colors just don't seem right on me. I think incorporating some strong colors work for the office always works.
I really like these lip creams. The only thing I don't like about it is that this color does not last very long. In fact, it slides off. I suppose it's too dimethicone-y because it has the slippery feel but nonetheless, I do like the way it feels and I do love this color. NYX has always been a consistent brand and I own a lot of their products. I particularly like their lip colors, from the round lipsticks to these lip cremes. I just wish it was longer lasting.
What lip colors are you sporting recently? Do you enjoy shopping your stash? :)
