If you follow me (which if you’re not, WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE?!?!), you know that I’ve been seriously making an effort to keep up with my lip colors. It’s definitely not as easy as it sounds. Lazy people like me will understand, we simply can’t be bothered with what’s on our lips because like everyone else, we’ve got shit to do.
With that being said, I’ve accumulated and re-discovered a crap-ton of lip products I’ve been rotating through depending on my mood and my makeup for the time being. Beware: Nude-pink overload. Don’t expect anything funky like a red or burgundy – no matter how hard I try, red lipstick does not look good on me.

KIKO Kiss Balm in 06 Raspberry (UNAVAILABLE ON US SITE)
Unfortunately this is unavailable on the US website but if you have the pleasure of living in Europe, traveling to Europe, or ordering from the European site, I highly recommend this as it’s cheap yet pigmented yet moisturizing. Love.
Likewise, this “lipstick” is glossy but not sticky and very buildable and sheer. It’s also a bit pinker than I’d normally go for but it’s perfect for the spring and summer time.
I honestly don’t know what to call this. It’s kinda a gloss but it’s also way too non-sticky to be classified as one. I can’t tell you what it is but what I can tell you is how the nude color is ON POINT for any makeup look and it’s super travel-friendly.
KIKO Gossamer Emotion Lipstick in 104 Vintage Rose
The toned-down alternative to the much coveted “Kylie lip” minus the bottle cap, dry feel, and high maintenance. Girl, if anything, I’m opposed to a high maintenance lip.
Not the most moisturizing but it’s definitely worth the hype.
If a balmy lip pencil and a rose had a baby it would be this. What a glorious baby.
Shoutout to Marc Jacobs who modeled the quintessential 90s in one tube of lipstick.
Think Cher Horowitz meets liquid lipstick.
I told you there was nothing but a plethora of nude pinks…
