There is something about a frosted lipstick I cannot resist! When I spotted MAC Frost lipstick in Fabby, I instantly fell in love with it, and I thought it would compliment this upcoming fall season’s trends.

I am not hip on fall 2016’s red lipstick trend, so I have ventured out on my own to find colors which work both with autumn’s berry hues, and fall blues. This upcoming cool weather season is also bringing us vintage appeal from the 1970s and 1990s. Frosted lipstick was worn during both of these eras, so it plays well with the current trends. Love that!

MAC Frosted lipstick in Fabby is my favorite frosted lipstick color for fall. It has a pink and purple tone which is mature, and modern; without screaming late 1980s frost. It is easy to wear during the day, yet transitions nicely into the evening hours. It also works well with the current summer trends, making MAC Frosted lipstick in Fabby a great summer into fall color too. Love!

MAC Tendertalk Lip Balm review

I was so excited to learn about MAC Tendertalk Lip Balm. I always use Chapstick in the morning, and before bed, but during the day I want a little bit of color on my lips. MAC Tendertalk Lip Balm is fabulous because it is a lip balm, yet also adds sheer color to the lips. Love that!

MAC Tendertalk Lip Balm offers moisture which has helped repair my lips when they are dry or windblown. It also has a slight vanilla scent; which is fabulous! I chose Teddy Pink, which in the lipstick tube, looks like a really bright, neon pink! In actuality, it goes on sheer; adding a slight pink tinge to lips. I am in love with this color!

This is a great lip balm to carry around in my purse, and use on a daily basis. I am so excited to have found it! I definitely want to try more colors as we move into fall. Teddy Pink is great to wear now, and it will also work well into early fall. I might opt for more of a red or purple hue as we head towards winter.

You can find MAC Tendertalk Lip Balm online here.

I rate MAC Tendertalk Lip Balm in Teddy Pink, five out of five stars!

Don’t forget! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends this weekend, check out my picks from the sale, or shop it directly online here.

Happy National Lipstick Day 2016! In honor of lipstick everywhere, I thought it would be fun to share my favorite lipsticks of the moment, as well as one fun fact about lipstick!

Fun fact: “Egyptians like Cleopatra crushed bugs to create a colour of red on their lips.” (Source Google via Wikipedia)

Can you imagine wearing crushed bugs on your lips? I can’t. Ew! It is incredible to learn what women did for fashion in ancient times. Who knows, maybe someday future humans will look at our high heels as some sort of weird torture device. Ha! But I digress. . .

I am a huge fan of pink lipstick, and soft brown lipstick. I prefer matte, and sheer lipsticks, over cream; and I always look for a blue based shade, they help make teeth look whiter. Love that!

Fall 2016 is all about red nail  polish, and red lipstick. I am not a big red lipstick person, or red nail polish fan, so I will be skipping this trend in favor of my tried and true pink or brown lipstick hues. For the end of summer, and early fall, the lipsticks pictured above will be my go-to shades.

I definitely reach for Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Rosa the most, with Chanel Melancholie being my next go-to lipstick. Chanel Mighty, and Energy, were my go-to lipsticks earlier in the spring season, but they have both gone missing! I suspect my daughter has snatched them up; she is famous for stealing my nail polishes. I need to watch her more closely. .

Last week, I bought MAC Fabby, and Charlotte Tilbury Kidman’s Kiss for transitioning into the fall season. Watch for upcoming reviews of these two lipsticks. I’m really excited about these two colors, and the formulas are fabulous!

What are your favorite lipsticks? Happy National Lipstick Day 2016!
