a pop of color to kick off the week:

Yesterday I received--seriously, this is not an exaggeration--exactly seven compliments on my lip color, mostly from strangers, all of which were followed by: "Which brand? Which shade?"
The magic blend I'd been wearing?
Three cult favorites--my everyday staples--layered:

2-3 coats of Benetint by Benefit Cosmetics 
Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey
+
Rosebud Strawberry Lip Balm for some extra shine

I'm curious: Do you have a go-to brand for lip color?
What about a favorite shade? Or do you switch it up regularly?

I mainly switch it up a lot! But I will always wear a tinted chapstick.

Gosh you're gorgeous! I'm jealous.
I hardly ever wear lipstick, my lips are already abnormally red. I just wear moisturizer.

Have a great week! =)

I wish! I don't wear much make up, partly because I never budget enough time for it and partly because I lack the funds to go out and buy some reliable, worthwhile make up. :( I'll definitely write yours down for the future me though!

i am obsessed with Benetint by Benefit. in fact, i'm almost out of my bottle and need to go get more soon...all of their products are great, but i especially love that tint. it's a cheek color and a perfect shade of lip color all in one!

Awesome shade! I typically wear lip glosses, usually a light pink shade.
