Byrdie staff names the best #lipstick brands, ever

I enjoy receiving E-newsletters from Byrdie. As I use neutral eyeshadows, I express myself through lipstick, so I was very interested to read what Byrdie staff had to say.

Byrdie names the best lipstick brands, ever.

Byrdie names the best lipstick brands, ever.

I like to sample lipsticks from various brands, so I can’t name a favorite brand. I do however like Burts Bees Satin Lipstick (9.00 USD).  It performs as well as lipsticks 2-3 times its price.

These are the best lipstick brands we’ve ever tried. Read all about them here.

Best of #beauty – Hourglass, Cover FX and more

Best of beauty

Clockwise from top left:

Hourglass Vanish™ Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

A creamy stick foundation that serves as both a full-coverage foundation and concealer.  I like blending it with my Sigma 3DHD™ Kabuki Brush.

Cover FX Clear Cover Invisible Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Don’t like the whitish cast of many sunscreens? Then try Cover FX Clear Cover Invisible Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30.  This sunscreen goes on clear and has a serum-y consistency.

Touch in Sol No Poreblem Primer – press sample

An unbelievably silky face primer with a serum-y consistency from K-Beauty brand Touch in Soul

L.A. Colors 5-Color Matte Eyeshadow Palette

OK, so the eye shadows aren’t silky, but they have good pigmentation.  A bargain at USD $1.50.  Yep, you read that right: one dollar and fifty cents.  Like neutrals as much as I do? Then try Tan Khaki, Brown Tweed, or Natural Linen (shown).

Jane Iredale Daytime eyeshadow palette

The perfect neutral eyeshadow palette

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Jane

One swipe, and you’re done.  Jane (Fonda? Birken?) is described as “terracotta rose.”  The terracotta makes the rose less precious. For other terracotta faves, visit Meet the Lipstick Shade That’ll Replace Your Nudes This Fall.

Burt’s Bees Satin Lipstick

Burt’s Bees Satin Lipstick is every bit as good as luxury lipsticks (including NARS).  It’s a great value at USD 9.00. My lipstick wardrobe includes Burt Bee’s Satin Lipsticks in Ruby Ripple and Russet River.  Buy wherever Burt’s Bees are sold (and that’s practically everywhere).

IsaDora Eye Shadow Quartet in Muddy Nudes

Yes, I sprang for the IsaDora eye shadow palettes as soon as they became available on walgreens.com.  I am delighted with the smoothness and pigmentation of the eye shadow quartet and the subtle gradation of shades.

DHC Premium Lipstick GE delivers color and emollient benefits

DHC. Quick – what do you think of? Its mail order catalog? Its Deep Cleansing Oil?

DHC is rolling out a new collection of color cosmetics this month. Take a look! The new collection includes 6 shades of Premium Lipstick GE, 4 shades of Face Color Palette EX blush, BB Mineral Powder, and Q10 Moisture Care Face Powder.

I’ve swatched the lipsticks on my arm (thanks to Mr. Style Page for the staging and post-processing).

DHC Premium Lipstick GE swatches

From L to R:

  • Rich Raspberry (RS107)
  • First Blush (RS105)
  • Bold Persimmon (OR112)
  • Rose Gold (BE111)
  • Velvety Red (RD109)
  • Petal Pink (PK102)

There are no wash-out nudes or vampish dark shades among them: just simply complexion-flattering shades  There’s a slight but appealing sheen to the lipstick, which is apparent when applied to the lips.  DHC Premium Lipstick GE keeps your lips soft and supple with emollient ingredients such as macadamia, olive, and rice bran oils. If that doesn’t prove the power of makeup, I don’t know what does.

DHC Premium Lipstick GE costs $19 per tube and may be purchased via catalog or DHCcare.com.

Tangee Natural lipstick

Tangee Natural lipstick is an iconic lipstick: just read the testimonials from women even older than The Style Page (!) They fondly remember Tangee Natural as their first lipstick.

First of all, let’s get one thing out of the way: “Natural” refers to the lip color, not the ingredients. While Tangee Natural is bright orange in the tube, it turns to a soft blush rose on the lips.

The soft blush rose color stays on, and Tangee Natural feels comfortable on the lips.  This lipstick would suit women with fair to light skin tones with blonde to light brown hair.  As I have dark brown hair (from the bottle!) and a light complexion, I need a deeper shade of lipstick.

Tangee Natural’s appeal is that it’s an iconic lipstick.  This is one lipstick that cries out for retro-packaging: Gabriela Hernandez, are you listening?

Tangee Natural lipstick sells for $15.00 a tube, exclusively through the Vermont Country Store.
