As summer gradually comes to an end, I'm soaking up the last moments with some fun, bright lip colors featuring our new ColorLuxe Hydrating Cream Lipstick. I tend to wear a lot of black, so pinks, oranges, and corals are my go-to lip colors to add a playful touch to my look. I'm also gearing up for fall by experimenting with deeper, bolder hues. Burgundies, plums, and rich reds bring a sense of warmth and sophistication to my makeup look.
The ColorLuxe tube feels soft and sleek in your hands. The lipstick glides up smoothly and the cap feels snug and secure. There is a color swatch sticker on the bottom of the tube making it easy to grab the right shade from your kit.
I've been on a bit of a vermillion kick this summer and Poppy matched my nail polish and necklace so I took this as a sign to begin my ColorLuxe journey here. Poppy is a warm medium-dark orange red shade that melted onto my lips and felt super nourishing. I'm impressed with how much pigment it has while still feeling weightless. I'm absolutely obsessed with this lip color. The second photo was taken a few hours later, I had a couple glasses of water and a snack in between. The color is still going strong with no touch up! The formula has dried down a lot but my lips still feel moisturized.
Next up in our hydrating lipstick lineup is Peony, a cool medium fuchsia shade. Peony has a fun, cheerful vibe — when you wear it you can’t help but feel happy and energized. I'm going to have this lip color on hand for end-of-summer parties.
Candy Apple is a gorgeous cool-toned shade of red that invokes thoughts of sweet treats and warm, cozy sweaters. This is the perfect fall lipstick to wear to festivals and pumpkin patches.
Passionfruit, a cool dark fuchsia shade, is the perfect balance of boldness and playfulness, making it an ideal choice for both casual and formal events this fall. This shade is definitely going to be one of my go-to fall lipstick colors.
Lastly, Bordeaux. This shade surprised me. It's a deep burgundy that at first glance seemed too dark for me, but once applied it gave off a romantic and sophisticated vibe. Perfect for a fall date night. I'm in love!
My overall thoughts — ColorLuxe is a moisturizing lipstick that feels light, creamy and nourishing like a lip balm but has the color and staying power of a lip stain. I found that I would forget that I was wearing it and was pleasantly surprised by how pretty my lips looked when I would catch a glance of myself in the mirror. My favorite part is how easy it was to apply it, one swipe gave me all the color I needed. If you want a nourishing, lightweight yet highly pigmented lip color I definitely suggest giving ColorLuxe a try — and don't be afraid of the bold & bright colors!
