•GUEST BLOGGER• ~ Nana Ashanti - FAVORITE FALL LIPPIES (MUST HAVE)



FAVORITE FALL LIPPIES (MUST HAVE) - By Nana Ashanti


Hi guys, welcome to today’s beauty post. Fall is upon us and soon winter will be here. Browns, deep reds, lovely coral and flora are taking precedence in all our wardrobe and makeup choices. Last year, the color to go for was vampy purple and boy, did I indulge.
This year, the vampy theme seems to live on but its leaning more towards deeper shades of brown and red. I love lipsticks a lot. A little bit too much, if I will tell the truth. I am the ‘let me buy 6 lipsticks to qualify for free shipping” type of girl. I am also the “I know I have reds but this is pinkish red, if you catch my drift” type of girl.
There is always a reason why I need to buy a new shade of lippie. This year, we all have been introduced to liquid lipsticks. What a time to be alive. As companies keep experimenting with their formulas, I say do not be afraid to dive in no matter the tone of your skin. I am Kalahari in Black Opal and NW 58 in Mac foundations. Very Lupita-esque but I am not afraid to experiment with color. My one advice is to wax your lip hair (upper and bottom) and use a sugar scrub to exfoliate your lips before you apply any lipstick shade. Primers and lip liners go a long way in getting that crisp finish. So on to my season favorites.


·        La Splash Lip Couture Lip Lipstick in Vampire
This made it to my top list for its amazing formula, color payoff and quantity, value for money. At $16 per pop, this little baddie here is a little investment, a wise one either way. La Splash is an underrated company but their products speak for themselves. This color is perfect for all times of the day and needs no reapplication, come drink and food. To get a further matte formula to guarantee a 100% non-transferable formula, dab on a little translucent powder or brown eyeshadow (don’t tell anyone I told you that). Only con is you will need an extra minute taking it off.

 Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick,001

This lippie is my most used (and abused) red shade this season. Red is perfect for every season. I know you like that feeling you get with red lipstick on and hair blowing in the air. Yeah. Lot of wind to whip your hair so why not wear that lipstick girl?

At $4.39 from Amazon, this red will be great for girls’ night out, date night and if you have a liberal workplace, wear it on a gloomy dark to bring the fun. This has a good formula as well but downside it can get all over the place so again, “mattify” it if you want to.

·        NYX Soft Matter Lip Crème in Copenhagen

Shall I announce a winner? This lippie is my go-to save-the-entire-look.  The quality is top-notch and it applies very easily. It dries matte and may need reapplying after a drink but it doesn’t get all over the place so yes its kissing proof. TMI? Alright, I’ll stop. This is my third purchase and the price sits at $6.50. This lippie is a beautiful color for the fall and every season after that.


·        NYX Soft Matte Lip Crème in Amsterdam

NYX soft matte lip creams come in a very large range. My favorite thing to do is mix two colors and see if I love it. Fortunately I love Copenhagen and Amsterdam together so yay Europe.
So guys, hopefully I have offered you a chance to expand that makeup collection and experiment further for the season. Let’s keep it fresh, vampy and blush. Tag the blog in your photos and see you in the next post.
