5 Hot Valentines Day Lip Colors

Alright…are you getting sick of Valentines Day posts yet? If your answer is a flaming YES, I am just going to pretend I didn’t hear it through my computer screen. I kind of really like the commercialized holiday that celebrates love for a lot of reasons: 1)chocolate doesn’t have calories on this day 2) flowers show up 3) buying a heartshaped pizza has somehow become a tradition. Plus, in addition to those 3 already amazing reasons, you can bust out some pretty bright lips in shades or red, pink, and very pink.  For me, any excuse to wear bright lips is a major win in my opinion. So I am going to show you my 5 favourite Valentines Day lipsticks/colors that I picked out of my obnoxious collection of bright lippies.




Let’s get started…shall we?

This one is the old packaging that Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics use to have their Lip Tars in. Let me tell you, these lip tars will literally last you your entire life, that is why I haven’t had to replenish this one since they changed their packaging. I highly suggest this Lip Tar in Pretty Boy; it not only makes your lips look oober glam, but it makes for a nice cream blush too!

Listen, this shade actually doesn’t exist anymore from Estee Lauder…so if anyone from Estee Lauder is reading this, do me a fave. and bring it on back. This is my all time favorite baby pink lipstick by Estee Lauder in their Crystal Lipstick collection called Innocence. As you can see, I am scraping this tube empty. If anyone reading this has another suggestion that is similar to this, comment below a suggestion!

If you have read my blog for a while, you will know that a love Jouer Cosmetics Lipsticks. This is one of their new-ish lipsticks called Ava that I will not be letting anyone borrow. That’s right, it’s mine. But seriously, if you are on the hunt for a good super-red-lipstick, check this one out!

Oh my gosh, I love this Cashmere Lip Cream by Bite Beauty in Sancerre! It goes on your lips like butter, and dries to a super matte finish. I also adore the pink-red color of this. I would almost say it’s like a raspberry shade.

Bite Beauty says that this Pigment Pencil is a coral pink…I think it’s more of a coral red. Either way, it’s a gorgeous color that would be perfect for Valentines Day, or any other day that a bright lip is calling your name.

Alright, enough selfies for the day. Which of these bright lips would you rock (if any)? I hope you guys have a great rest of your weekend! It’s seriously snowmaggedon here in Portland and I am loving it! You can check out my snow pic on my Instagram or Facebook page.
