NYX Cosmetics has a lot of great shades for your lips. I happen to like their lip creams. The products are very creamy lip colors that come in an array of coordinating shades from Nudes, Pinks, Reds and Vamps. I love the Nudes and Pinks especially, as they work with my red hair. Here are some of the shades to try out:
(above left: Nude Lip Creams in Peaches and Sable, Pink Lip Creams in First Base and Primrose, Red Lip Creams in Maraschino and Knock Out and Vamp Lip Creams in Covet and Aphrodisiac)

NYX Cosmetics Lip Creams are $6.50 and are available at www.nyxcosmetics.com, and at Ulta stores.
Also great with the lip products, NYC New York Color has some lip stains and lip lacquer that will definitely make Valentine’s Day sweeter. The colors are beautiful. I have tried out two of the NYC New York Color Smooch Proof Lip Stains, in Rock on Ruby and Never Ending Nude. The nude shade goes on nicely and stays on for 16 hours of uninterrupted wear. The ruby shade also goes on nicely and does not wear off for at least 12 hours. I would not say 16 hours because I did notice that my lips were fading after about 12 hours. This product is available for $2.99 in drugstores nationwide.

The NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Lacquer is extraordinary. It is very pigmented, creamy and lasts for hours. It has the ease of a gloss, intense lacquer feel that never feathers or bleeds. Lips stay hydrated, comforted, soft and supple. The lacquer is never sticky. I tried Rockaway Ruby, a very bright blue red that looks great for Valentine’s Day. It is available in 12 shades for $3.99 and can be purchased at drugstores nationwide.

I hope you have some fun ideas for you Valentine’s Day lips now. Use any combination of these with a nice nude eye or a smoky eye for drama. Have fun and let Cupid’s Arrow catch you in the heart!
Until Next Time~
