My favorite low maintenance lip colors.
With school in full swing, I'm back into wearing very low maintenance lip colors. I don't want to be worrying about if I have lipstick wearing off poorly or transfer onto the teeth. The problem is I sometimes still look a bit young to be teaching high school kids. Just this week during a fire drill I told a kid to get out of the street he responded with "Oh sh*t I didn't know you were a teacher!" I have had plenty of kids come in to my room and can't find their teacher... in my head I say "seriously you think a student wears dress pants and a blouse to class?" Anyway, I like to wear a bit more makeup, usually involving a brighter lip color. I don't want to age myself but I try to look more polished. I keep the rest of my makeup simple because at this point I take sleep over eye shadow, most days. So I wanted to round up 5 of my absolute favorite no fuss lip colors.
I am such a fan of a red lip, but I fear the maintenance it takes to pull it off. This Tony Moly tint is perfect for creating a red lip that wears well. I reach for this all the time during the holidays and for evenings out.
Applies like a chapstick, no mirror needed. I received this in my Birchbox subscription ago and I love it. This claims to automatically adjust to your body's pH to create a unique to you perfect pink. On my I usually get a really pretty pink with a bit of a sheen, it didn't swatch well on my arm but trust me this is a great lip product. I keep this in my bag at school all the time, it is my daily go to.
Sometime I forget how much I love this color. I received it in my Ipsy subscription a few years back, and it lasts forever. This red tint has the prettiest blue undertone that works perfectly with my skin tone.
These Revlon lip colors are great from the drugstore. I love the colors sweetheart & honey. Sweetheart is a bright pink, BRIGHT. Honey is a really pretty mauve neutral pink. It is perfect if you don't love bright color. This starts glossy and wears down to a wonderful stain.
This is a bright pink lip stain that lasts until lunch for me. It is a bit on the runny side, but it builds nicely. My absolute favorite lip stain was by a Korean brand that suddenly stopped selling in the U.S., so this is the closest that exists on the market.
