The Lipstick League - week of 3.16.15


The Lipstick League Question of the Week: 

You’re leaving the house and must grab ONE lip color to wear for the entire week. Quick! What do you pick? 

G's answer: No surprises here--I'd go with Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Matte Lipstick in #104. Goes with everything, works perfectly with my's perfection. And don't forget that all Rimmel Lasting Finish lipsticks are 50% off at Walgreens for the entire month of March (that's a reminder to myself as well, since I need to stock up!).

  1. I have yet to try the 104, but googling it makes me think I should!
    If I had to choose one right now, I'd pick bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip-Oil Balm in Rose Passion. I usually don't splurge on pricier makeup, but I'm loving this one, as it has a pretty, dewy, warmer-looking rose hue and I love it. Plus it gets pinker on me as the day goes on, so I kind of get two in one with it.

    1. You need it, Heidi! :)

      I keep hearing good things about those Lip Oil Balms...gotta try one, one of these days!

    2. I might hit Wags later and see if I can score one. The bareMinerals are great. Not the most moisturizing formula, but they stain. I also picked up the Plumberry, and let me tell you, it stains the lips, and fast. I swatched it on my hand and wiped it off a minute later at Sephora, and my hand was pigmented. They all stain, but the Plumberry ... I'm wearing it now and will have color all day.

  2. Milani Nude Creme! Goes with any look. But I do love the Rommel 104, that is an excellent choice as well

    1. Yours is an excellent choice as well! :)

    2. Yours is an excellent choice as well! :)

  3. Hands down, Absolut Power by MAC. But since it's in limited supply right now - ie. they stopped making it - it would have to be Smashbox Legendary.

  4. Any one of my too many nudes.

  5. I have to say I went and finally picked up the Rimmel 104. Love it.
