50 Shades of Summer

This headline could mean LOTS of things, but today’s blog post is about my favorite lip shades this summer. I am OBSESSED with a good lipstick/gloss especially the fun, summer colors. I own about every shade of pink there is. As you can see in the pictures below, they are my absolute GO-TO when I am shopping at Sephora or Mac. The three colors I am sharing with you all today are Chanel pink gloss #214, Mac’s cremesheen Creme Cup AB4, and the newest in my collection is Tarte’s Tarteist glossy lip paint in Obvi. I love love LOVE Tarte’s names for all their lip colors, they relate to twenty-somethings and are just too cute.


First on the list is Chanel pink gloss #214 which is my favorite shade of glossy pink. I actually have a story to go along with this gloss too…

When I was in New York City in March, I went into this store in Chelsea called Jeffrey’s. To much of my surprise, the group of girls I was with and I ran into KATY PERRY there shopping. My first reaction was to pick the cheapest thing in the store (which was the lipgloss) and go pay for it because Katy was up at the register paying for her stuff but I’m not going to lie, I mainly wanted to see her adorable little pup. So there you have it, my impulse buy ended up being my favorite gloss. 😛


The next two glosses don’t have cool stories so I am sorry about that! On the list next was Mac’s Cremesheen Creme Cup which I’m almost out of because I have used it so religiously.


Last on the list is definitely my newest, but still so fun! It is the Tarte’s Tarteist Gloss Lip Paint in ObviIt is more of a nude shade than a pink, but I had to try it out.



There you have it. What are you all GO-TO lip shade? I would love to know so maybe I can check it out as well. 🙂
