If you haven’t heard about Clinique’s Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balms before, you’ve been missing out. First of all they offer sheer, shiny color with super-moisturizing properties. But there’s another reason to check them out now … they come in eight brand new shades for fall/winter. Bountiful Blush is a great new nude shade, while Curvy Candy adds a bit more color (of the pink variety) to a sheer nude, and Voluptuous Violet is a beautiful mauve shade.

Emma Stone stepped out for Elle’s Women in Hollywood Tribute with a homerun of a look. Her fringe bangs and side layers framed her rosy-colorwashed cheeks perfectly, while her raspberry stained lips coordinated beautifully with her dress. Then there were her dramatic eyes, peeking out under her long bangs they were bright and blue under a thick line of dark eyeliner. Her look was bright and dramatic enough for the flashbulb frenzy that accompanies red carpet events. If you’re looking for something a little less flashy but just as fresh, you’re going to want to focus on your lips and not your eyes.
To achieve stained, yet soft, lip color you’ll want to check out a product like Smashbox’s Limitless Lip Stain and Color Seal Balm in Sangria or Petal. With a feather-resistant stain in marker form on one end, you’ll be able to easily apply the color and watch it sink into lips, creating color depth. Then you can use the lip balm at the other end to add a little moisture and softness back to lips to really set the look.

Fresh-Sugar-Kisses-Mini-Lip-Trio.jpgImagine my surprise and delight when the Fresh Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Trio arrived on my desk the other day. I am a huge fan of every Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment out there, so this collection of three minis? Perfection.

I love that the balm isn’t too waxy or sticky, and it keeps lips moisturized and conditioned for hours on end. Plus, each one is formulated with SPF 15, so you’re protecting your pout every time you step out the door!

But the best part about them? The colors, of course! This set includes Berry, Honey and Passion, each of which leave the prettiest hint of color upon the lip. I actually prefer these to lipgloss or lipstick most days!

Show off your classic red pout by making it the focus of your face, leaving your eyes neutral and your skin fresh. Here are some red lipsticks to help you get the look:

Stila-Starfruit-Lip-Glaze-Big-Image.jpgI’ve tried a lot of lip products in my day. A LOT. But the one I keep coming back to, month after month and year after year? Stila Starfruit Lip Glaze.

Now, a lot of people think this lipgloss is too sticky. And, yes, I agree that it can be. But I choose not to let that bother me, because the color is just that good. The coral hue shimmers and shines whether it’s on its own or other another gloss or lipstick. It’s sexy and sensual but still girly and cute—the perfect combination, wouldn’t you agree?

At the end of the day, I just feel happy when I wear it. And, really, isn’t that what makeup is all about?
