Just These 3 Lipsticks Can Keep You Fashionable and Hydrated For The Whole Winter

When it comes to make up, every woman has her go-to. We have our common ones: eyeliner, blush or foundation. With that, there are a numerous amount of reasons why these products are a go-to favorite. Each one can and will enhance a feature. Whether it is wanting your eyes to pop, covering up some blemishes or just wanting rosy cheeks. Though, there is one product that I feel never gets enough attention. The product happens to be Lipstick.

I have always been a fan of lipstick. It was actually my first official make up purchase. I loved how it comes in many different shades. If you want to feel spontaneous, you may lean towards a bright color. If you are feeling a little down, you may pick up a darker tone, and so on. Another great reason why I love this product, it is so easy to apply! There is not a certain technique that goes into this. But to not look too outrageous, whenever you are applying any lipsticks, try not go over the lines of your lips. If it does happen, it is an easy fix up, along with clean up.

There is one flaw about lipsticks, many do not have any hydration. Which isn’t great, especially for the Winter season. The worst thing that can happen is having chapped lips with lip color marks, making it noticeable. Though applying lip balm, it does limit that from happening, if you do pick up a non hydration lipstick.

Looking for the right color, is such a hassle. Stopping by your local drugstore or mall, trying on every color but to find out they were not as flattering. It’s exhausting. Which is why I am here to help out and save some time. Perhaps money as well. I personally find red and brown a perfect tone for the winter. They look great on every skin tone!

With that said, here are 3 lipsticks that have hydration and are perfect for the Winter season.

NARS Olivia

NARS

    This shade is beautiful! It is not too bright nor not too dark. If you are looking for an evening lip color, this is the one for you. This product is rich and creamy. Lasts all day and you don’t need to apply lip balm! With that said, this is more of the higher end. It goes for $32 at your local Sephora. Personally, I think this is a great investment.

    MAC Viva Glam l

    MAC

      I am a sucker for MAC Cosmetics. This is the perfect shade of red. Like NARS, it is creamy and rich, so smooth to apply. I cannot tell you how many times I have gone to MAC and bought this product simply because I want to have a full stock of it. Great for a simple day time look or even a relaxing night out with friends. Compared to NARS Olivia, this is price that won’t make your bank break, going for $17 at the MAC Cosmetics Store.

      NYX Knock Out

      NYX

        Last but not least, I have the NYX Knock Out. A great lipstick for beginners or anyone who is trying to go for a settled red look. This one is a tad different from the other two, as it is a lip cream stick. Lip creams tend to not last as long as lipsticks. Also, they are not as matte, so if you are looking for a solid color with no gloss, lip creams may not be the best suggestion. What I love about this NYX lip cream, it is so affordable and easy to find! The pricing for this product at any local drugstore goes for $7.

        The Importance of Making a Camping Checklist

        Camping can be hard work, but it’s the preparation that’s even harder. There are usually a lot of things to do in order to make sure that you and your family or friends have the perfect camping experience. But sometimes you might get to your destination and discover that you have left out one or more crucial things.

        There is no dispute that preparation and organization for a camping trip can be quite overwhelming, but if it is done right, you would see at the end of the day, that it was worth the stress. This is why it is important to ensure optimum planning and execution. For this to be possible, it is advised that in addition to a to-do-list, you should have a camping checklist to remind you of every important detail.

        Why You Should Have a Camping Checklist

        Creating a camping checklist makes for a happy and always ready camper. It also prevents mishaps.  A proper camping checklist should include every essential thing you would need for your camping activities, organized into various categories such as shelter, clothing, kitchen, food, personal items, first aid kit, informational items, etc. These categories should be organized by importance. However, it is important that you should not list more than you can handle or more than is necessary for your outdoor adventure.

        Camping checklists vary depending on the kind of camping and outdoor activities involved. You should not go on the internet and compile a list of just any camping checklist. Of course, you can research camping checklists, but you have to put into consideration the kind of camping you are doing. It could be backpacking, camping with kids, canoe camping, social camping, etc. You have to be specific and take note of those things that are specifically important to your trip, and those things which are generally needed in all camping trips no matter the kind of camping being embarked on.

        4. You should make out or download a proper checklist months ahead of your trip to make room for adjustments and to avoid too much excitement and the addition of unnecessary things.
