There is something to be said for lipstick shades that are just easy to wear. They match everything you could find in your wardrobes because all they really are is a slightly more amped up version of your natural lip shade. My lips are rather colorless, but tinted products with a little bit of a nude tea rose pigment to them really perk me up and look natural all at the same time.

My three favorite “my lips but better” shades are the It CC+ Serum in In Love, Tarte LipSurgence in Blushing Bride, and Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Tulip.
The CC+ Lip Serum is jam packed with lots of amazing ingredients, including collagen, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and nine essential butters and oils. It comes in three shades, and I wish it came in clear, because I would totally sleep with this on my lips. That’s how good it feels!
LipSurgence generally go on rather sheer. You can check out my full review of the line here. Blushing Bride is a gorgeous mauve pink that I am loving!
Tarte’s Amazonian Butter lipsticks are super moisturizing and creamy. They contain butters from cupuacu, murumuru, and shea as well as having mineral pigments to soothe. The shade Tulip is a fabulous Mauve Rose that I can’t get enough of. It’s a step up from my natural lip color and I love that it has a hint of mint flavor.

If you’ll notice, my list is short, and two of the products are from tarte. Few shades complement my coloring like these shades do when I’m trying to keep things low key. Both It Cosmetics and tarte have fabulous products, but I really think tarte hits it out of the park with “no makeup makeup” and products that look natural, flattering, pretty, and are great for every day. It’s no wonder I am obsessed!
