..The Five Essential Shades


These are the five shades of lipstick I SWEAR by.  They are the only colors I've ever been seen wearing on this here blog to date and I honestly feel like I will never need to purchase another lipstick as long as I live because no matter what I am wearing or however I am vibing in any situation, one of my favorite five gets the job done.  You don't need to purchase these exact shades (although these are my personal favorites) but I do promise that having one that will fit into each category will be all you need for the entire summer (aimed at you lipstick lovers out there, I realize some of you might be lip-gloss ladies).

1. Classic pink - "Midnight Rose" by Lancome
2. Orange hue- "Orange Flip" by Revlon
3. Bold red - "Certainly Red" by Revlon
4. Purple tone - "Violette Coquette" by Lancome
5. Neon color - "Love that Pink" by Revlon

Since I really do want all of you to love my favorites as much as I do, I am giving away number five on my list, "Love that Pink" (last seen here) to one reader.  No hoops to jump though, all you have to do is be a follower via GFC or Bloglovin' and leave a comment below letting me know you want to be entered. Winner will be announced one week from today.

xo,
Erin

  11. I love that orange flip! I think I will get it. It's nice to see some shades on an actual person instead of just staring at the tube, hoping that it is cute!

  22. oh fun! I have been trying to get more into lipsticks, but haven't been as successful as you and your fabulous collection of shades... maybe it is because I still feel like a little girl playing dress up in my mom's closet when I put on a bright lippy... but you can count me in for the giveaway - perhaps a new color will help me be brave! I follow on GFC and Bloglovin'

  27. Fabulous colors! I've been wanting to try different lipstick colors, but the colors that other bloggers "love" happen to be too much money. I mean, $30 is just too much for lipstick, IMO. I think it's great that the colors you love aren't breaking the bank!

    And, of course, I want in on the giveaway!

  31. Great post today, Erin! I have about ten million lipsticks, but find myself constantly using the same 3 or 4. You aren't the first blogger I've heard talking about "Love that Pink" so it must be good stuff!

    I really love Orange Flip on you. It's hard for me to find an orange lipstick that works with my skin tone, but Orange Flip looks promising!
