Best Lipsticks of 2019
DIOR ADDICT LIP GLOW + SISLEY PARIS PHYTO LIP TWIST :: as suggested by GILLIAN WHITLOCK (Key Make Up for Fox’s The Last Man On Earth and HBO’s Togetherness)
+ My personal favorite lipstick is actually more of a balm. — Dior Addict Lip Glow. It comes in 2 colors- one is pinkish & the other is peachy. The color interacts with your chemistry to become your own color. It’s so moisturizing and the perfect thing if you want a bit of color but not a lipstick look!
+ For my clients, I am loving the Sisley Paris Phyto-Lip Twist. They’re like giant crayons – easy to apply & you don’t really need a lip pencil because the shape allows you to outline & fill in easily.
MAC’s All Fired Up Retro Matte and Trust in Red Lipliner :: as suggested by ALISON GELB PINCUS (founder of ONE KINGS LANE, HELLO MAZEL (a geniusly curated Jewish subscription box) / mother of 3)
Urban Decay’s New “Alice” (Disney Alice Through The Looking Glass) and Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra Nourishing Lip Duo in “Liquid Gold & Pink” :: as suggested by STACY COX (national correspondent and lifestyle expert for Dr. Oz, KTLA, E!, Extra, The View)
+ My fave lipstick is Urban Decay’s New “Alice” (Disney Alice Through The Looking Glass). Its sheer simmer, neutral nude goes with anything. It’s easy to put on and hit the ground running.
TOM FORD BLACK ORCHID :: as suggested by DEBORAH AFSHANI (editorial stylist for Conde Naste (Vanity Fair, W and everything else cool))
+ It’s perfection… Color, texture, length of time (it stays on)… A splurge but worth every penny.
NARS LIPSTICK PENCILS :: as suggested by JAMIE KANTROWITZ (tech entrepreneur, political activist, consultant for HBO’s “Silicon Valley)
+ Not messy, never comes off, awesome colors.
Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor in Unlimited Mulberry $5.26 :: as suggested by STEPHANIE CHAO (former marketing exec turned mother of 3, rock star wife)
+ I love it because it’s the closest color to my real lips! When I kiss my girls, I don’t leave lipstick on their face. It’s water proof and food proof — and will survive anything. It lasts all day and there’s no need to reapply. Great for busy moms!
COVERGIRL Lipperfection Jumbo Gloss :: as suggested by PILAR DEMANN (West Coast mega manager/producer turned East Coast mama and makeup artist extraordinaire)
+ In my bag at all times. This is 4 of my 8 shades. Glossy, creamy and well priced!
+ Reason- perfect nude. Kylie Jenner.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella :: as suggested by MAURISSA TANCHAROEN WHEDON (writer/executive producer/creator of Marvel’s AGENTS of S.H.I.E.L.D.)
Dior in every shade of red :: as suggested by LAURI FIRSTENBERG (founder of LAX ART and ARTISTS in CRISIS, UNITED TALENT AGENCY’S Curatorial Advisor)
MAC’s Love Nectar :: as suggested by JERILYNN STEPHENS (Emmy Nominated & Guild Award Winning Hair stylist / Co Dept Head Hairstylist The Voice & Shark Tank / and the fab hairstylist of yours truly(!))
