Never underestimate the power of lipstick. Yes, it doesn’t seem like much when it’s in its tube, waiting for you to use it. But as soon as you twirl the bottom half and see the color pop out, you immediately get excited.
And as you carefully apply the stuff on your lips, something happens. Your face brightens up, skin becomes luminous and eye makeup seems more defined and vibrant.
I asked the country’s hottest celebrities the question on everyone’s minds: What is your favorite lippie? Here are their answers.
MAC Lady Danger, Ruby Woo, Honey Love and Morange
My favorites are Make Up For Ever 32 Natural Pink, MAC Peach Stock combined with Honey Love for a nude lip, and Tarte Red combined with Kat Von Dee for the ultimate red lip.
I only use one lipstick for everything, either as an everyday lip moisturizer on its own or as a nice base to start off other colors. Plus I’m acidic and I hate super sticky lip glosses. This one’s light: Laura Mercier Baby Lips.
MAC Morange, MAC Ravishing and Nars Schiap
Fave shades from Makeover Cosmetics (www.officialmakeovercosmetics.com) Seniorita—add gloss and you’re ready; Success gives the illusion of a pout, and there’s Roman Holiday for the perfect nude; Love Devotion—dramatic; Hot Voodoo—my daily lippie; and Belle du Jour for the closest neon you can wear.
Reel Sexy, Angel and Dubonnet, all by MAC
My fave brand is MAC. I love these shades: Nicki Minaj, Party Parrot, See Sheer and Lustering.
