Lancôme Lip Lover in No 339 'Fuchsia Attitude', on top of MAC Pro Longwear Lip Liner in 'Dynamo'. Am I the only American Lisa Eldridge fan who first discovered Lip Lover glosses through her channel, but misheard them through Lisa's silky-posh accent as "Lip Lavas"? It always made me think of the most gorgeous volcano ever. 🌋💄❤️
MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in 'Fanfare'. Not to rain on MAC's parade or anything, but this one is really frustrating to wear, which doesn't make any sense, since it's the same formulation (and almost the same shade?) as 'Crosswires', which I love. This one gets trapped in my lip lines, creases, wants to be sheer and creamy at the same time, and just basically acts annoying all day. The only nice thing I can say about this is that I bought it on a lovely trip with the hubs to NYC. But otherwise, 👎.
MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in 'Crosswires'. This is a nice pinky nude for days when I want more color without venturing into the brights. Looks fabulous on top of MAC Pro Longwear Pencil in 'In Anticipation'.
MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in 'Grande Dame'. Bought this several years back with my buddy Chaunette while on the hunt for a "daytime color with personality". It's since discontinued, but it was quite lovely while it lasted!
MAC 'So Chaud': first MAC lipstick purchase and my forever signature red, now beloved beyond recognition. ❤💄❤
When I had the brainstorm of creating an Instagram account all about my lipstick collection, I decided it was only fitting to name the account after my first grownup lipstick purchase; hence "EmilySoChaud".
