The ONE Lipstick Every Girl Needs in Her Bag

❤️Background I was a hotelier in my past life before I became a full-time freelance writer. Impeccable grooming is one of our priorities to look top-notch and professional at work. Lipstick is a necessary part of our beauty regime. If I were to pick just one make-up product to use at work, it would be a red lipstick. For me, a good lipstick is one that is: Giorgio Armani’s Lip Maestro Lip Stain is truly a god sent, and I have recommended this brand and specific shade of intense classic red to almost all of my colleagues and friends.  I am talking about Shade 400 – The Red. It may be hard to believe that this shade works on almost all skin colors. You will instantly see the difference on yourself. If you prefer a less vibrant red color, choose one from up to 31 shades in the same series.  ❤️Application The Lip Maestro is a rich and creamy liquid lip color, so it applies like a dream on lips and sets to a demi-matte finish – perfect for a more groomed and put-together look compared to a lip gloss. More importantly, the wear lasts long even after a meal of food and drinks.  If you are looking for ONE classic red for day or night, this is the one!  For a more casual day look, I swipe a thin layer on the centre of my lips with the applicator and spread it across evenly with a clean middle finger. This gives a lighter matte effect. For a more intense evening look, I apply more and blot the first even layer with a piece of tissue paper before layering another. Doing this almost guarantees no lipstick touch-ups for at least 4 hours! A little goes a long way for this highly recommended lip stain.

Armani beauty Lip Maestro in 206 Cedar - Brown
ARMANI beauty - Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick I got this as a little extra “Thank You” in my December 2029 Allure Beauty Box. I put my AirPod case next to this for size reference. This shade is described as a brown but this is really more like a brick red. It doesn’t quite dry down matte and the box actually didn’t say whether it was the Lip Maestro Stain or the Matte Lip, but I’m pretty sure it’s the Matte Lip because of the almost silicone-y feel it has. It reminds me of the texture of the Rare Beauty Matte Lipstick. I can’t really say how long it lasts because I don’t wear lipstick like this with a mask (I can’t wait to be able to actually use lip products again 😭), but I don’t think it’s a stay all day kind of lip product. This is a really nice product and I’m glad I got to try it out!

Lip Gloss as Blush 😍
All of us want to know the useful make-up tricks to illuminate our face in an instant with minimal effort. Here’s a trick - after your regular application of lipstick, lip gloss, or both, simply dab the excess product onto the cheeks and blend! One of my favorite lip gloss is the best-selling Armani Beauty Lip Maestro liquid lipstick in shade 400. ARMANI beauty - Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick The non-drying liquid lipstick is heavily pigmented and infuses my lips with an intense deep red color while providing a velvet matte finish with lasting hydration and comfort. After using a clean finger to go around my lips after application, I usually dab the excess color on my finger lightly and in tapping motions on my cheeks for a fresh face glow. This turns the lip color as a cream or liquid blush! Less is more, especially with rich lip pigments. Go with a little at any one time. Using a deep red color may seem daunting at first, try a pink or peachy coloured lip gloss for a more natural effect.ARMANI beauty - Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick

Tell me, who doesn’t love a red lip stain? If you’re feeling down, there’s nothing better to lift your mood!😍 Let’s take my two favorites and compare them! First, one - Sephora Lip Stain, the color I wear is called no 1, it’s a gorgeous lip stain, a velvety matte that goes on like a dream 👄loads of pigment that keeps the color strong, without being sticky. Some lip stains dry the lips out but the Sephora Lip Stain doesn’t do that, never ever! So comfortable to wear, I can wear it on my 6-hour shift at work, it doesn’t move! It comes in a choice of colors. Two major plus points for me, you can buy it for around $15.00 and it’s small enough to fit into your purse, double whammy right there!👏🏾 Katvon D Everlasting liquid lipstick, I love this one too, it’s amazing! Goes on like a dream, luxe creamy formula, so lightweight and comfortable, not at all sticky, Katvon D is even higher in pigment, this means the amazing color is even stronger than the Sephora lip stain. I always wear Katvon D Everlasting liquid lipstick in brick red 💋beautiful! Totally stunning! What’s great about this one, it’s vegan and there are 21 other colors to choose from. Love them both! Although Katvon D is a bit more expensive than Sephora lip stain, I think Katvon is my overall favorite.  Make sure you buy strong makeup remover though because, I’m not lying when I say, they don’t come off easily - no matter how much kissing I do! 😘

Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick #200 I got this one few month ago, and this color became my favorite. The color is brownish red, the official name is terra-brown. I love how the lipstick changes the finish in seconds. When you apply on lips, it is satin, but it would become matte finish really fast. Easy to apply, hydrating, long lasting and pigmented are what I love of this lipstick. A mush have!!! Ecstasy Lacquer Lip Gloss #500 Vintage-rose gold color. I like to use gloss lipstick in summer. The ultra-glossy finish looks amazing in summer with sunshine. Glitter makes the lipstick so shinny and girlish. This product is renowned for maximum shine, intense color and length of wear. Also, there is another reason. Summer does not cloudy that much, the lipstick is sticky, so it is not that friendly for fall and winter. Also, gloss lipstick always has a magic, which is lip enhancement effect. Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick #400 This is a true universal red. Also a matte finish lipstick combines rich color with thin texture for weightless wear. The high coverage formula of highly concentrated with pigment features a breakthrough texture, and easy to apply. These 3 lipsticks have the same pointy applicator, which is really easy to apply on the points you want. That is what I like. Also, 3 of them are long lasting, I do not need to apply lipstick again and again. Armani is really good on pigments. I love each single color that I bought.

Since Christian Louboutin has expanded their product line to the make-up field, their price keeps in the top. It is three times more expensive than other lipsticks.CL has produced three classic red color, 001, 001m and 001s. I bought #001 rouge louboutin, its texture is between 001m and 001w, not as matte as 001m, and not as moiost as 001s.Compared with well-known pure red queen DIOR 999, CL 001 is more darker. Many lipsticks need to be applied several times to show the color, CL only need one time and the saturation can keep very high for a long time. If you are hesitated among colors, 001 is your first choice. In addition, I have to say the case of the lipstick seems like a weapon.: ) Almost every time I have to open my baggage and show my CL lipstick to staffs when I go though the security check. Christian Louboutin - Sheer Voile Lip Colour Armani 400 is also pure red. However, it can show two different styles when you wear it lightly and heavily. It is lip stain with a smooth velvety texture and a radiant finish. Your lips can be shown as instantly plumped and sexy. ARMANI beauty - Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick If you just want to buy a lipstick of your loved color, it doesn’t make much sense to buy Christian Louboutin. It is not too difficult to find alternatives in other brands. Although the color of CL lipsticks is really attractive, and itd packaging is also very exclusive, but it is also rly rly expensive !!!

This is the first CT product I’ve tried. I got it as a gift with purchase with my last Sephora order and it’s so freaking cute! I know this Pillow Talk lipstick is such a classic in her collection so it seemed right to me to this first, it’s such a pretty nude, it’s my perfect ‘my lips but better’ shade. Formula wise is also pretty good! Creamy and doesn’t feel drying at all. I’m definitely picking up a full size when I run out of this lil lipstick 💋 Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution Lipstick

My Top 3 Favorite Lipsticks❤️ 
Party Look❤️MAC Matte Lipstick(Color: Russian Red) A classic red shade——this color is mind-blowing awesomeness red I have ever purchased and it looks good on me (self-claimed). Quite a challenge to use it tho must apply with a brush. But my husband loves it, said the color changed my overall appearance and made me sexy.The staying power is pretty good too would have to reapply once, but that's good enough for me :) Daily Look❤️CHARLOTTE TILBURY - Matte Revolution Lipstick(Color: Walk Of Shame) Love this color!!! It Is a great everyday shade. Overall a beautiful neutral lip color. This is one of my favorite matte lipstick formula. It's really smooth and creamy, applies beautifully, and doesn't need a layer of lip balm at all like other matte lipsticks. Totally recommend! Dating Look❤️CHANEL - COCO gloss(Color: 754) These are by far my favorite liquid lipsticks! They don't bleed into the creases of your lips or crack and flake off like most products! The color looks much different when it's dried down, and it's more of a pinky nude. It's one of my new favorite colors and it pretty for a dating look.

This is Charlotte Tilbury’s Hot Lips 2 lipstick in the shade Dancefloor Princess. It’s a beautiful pinky-nude shade that is reminiscent of Pillowtalk, only less warm-toned, lighter, and a satin finish. It looks great with my light skin and features. Her lipsticks have some of the best formulas on the market, not to mention the most beautiful packaging.Charlotte Tilbury - Hot Lips Lipstick 2
