Rouge Volupte Shine

Rouge Volupte Shine

These luxurious lipsticks are something worth putting money into your “Lipstick Jar” savings. Two new colors for the season, Corail Intuitive (a soft shimmering peachy-coral) and Coral Incandescent (a bright, spicy coral) have emerged and they’re hard to pass up. The comfortable feel and satin shine from this product will definitely impress.









Tarte Pure Performance 12- hour lipstick – Coral

Tarte Pure Performance 12- hour lipstick – Coral

Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance 12- hour lipstick – Coral, $26, sephora.com

I have to thank Tarte for creating quality natural products. This 12-hour wear lipstick is without parabens (do research on what this means for you) which is something I tend to look out for when choosing cosmetic products. This playful shade of pink-coral will perk up any look and is one of those shades that looks just right on all skin tones.








Stila Color Balm Lipstick

Stila Color Balm Lipstick

Bold and Bright:

Stila Color Balm Lipstick - Betsey , $22, sephora.com

Bold lips with a nude face (no blush, no eyeshadow) were seen at Giles Deacon during Fashion week last year for Spring 2013. You hardly need anything more when you’re sporting bright lips, they’ll do all the work.

This creamy fuchsia color from Stila is loaded with full pigmented color but adds the softness of a lip balm with a glossy finish. (Bonus: No parabens!)





Sephora Collection Color Lip Last - #11 Forever Fuchsia

Sephora Collection Color Lip Last - #11 Forever Fuchsia

Sephora Collection Color Lip Last - #11 Forever Fuchia , $12, sephora.com

For those who prefer a long-wear color (my lip color bleeds with brighter shades) the Sephora Collection has a great collection of long-lasting shades with 10-hour wear.

Rock this fuchsia hot pink all day and night with some fierce false lashes for an unforgettable face.

Buxom Full Bodied Lipstick

Wine barrel o’ fun :

New York Fashion Week Spring 2013 saw red and wine defined lips at Jason Wu, with models sporting fuller brows and very minimal eye makeup.

Buxom Full Bodied Lipstick – Menace, $22, sephora.com

This rich wine shade with flecks of gold also serves as a lip-plumper (no tingle!) to give your pout that extra oomph! With coconut oil and vitamins C and E, this lipstick also will moisturize and protect your lips.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Bramble

Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Bramble

Chubby lip pencils are very trendy and will be the hottest makeup must-have for spring.


Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Bramble, $24, sephora.com

This high pigment matte pencil by Bite Beauty is the perfect shade of deep wine that also offers antiaging benefits; this pencil contains the same amount of resveratrol than 5 glasses of red wine, which means this pencil was made to combat aging skin. Made with food-grade ingredients, this pencil is good enough to take a “bite” out of.



Soap & Glory – Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Nudist

Soap & Glory – Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Nudist

In the nude:

We all need an everyday wearable lip color for the office, quick runs to the store, meeting your boyfriend’s parents for the first time, you catch my drift?

As I stated above, these chubby lip pencils are all the rage, and I personally picked this item as the “stays in my purse” go-to lip product.

Soap & Glory – Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Nudist, $16 .. with vanilla flavor! Very yummy.

The Soap & Glory gloss stick, Nudist, is a universally flattering natural pink/beige shade with flecks of silvery sparkle.

Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss – Beach, $24

Glistening shine with pink pearl reflections, this will look quite stunning as an everyday gloss.











Pastel Pop Jumbo Glossy Lip Pencil in Orange

Pastel Pop Jumbo Glossy Lip Pencil in Orange

Orange you glad Spring is almost here?

Orange, poppy lip color is huge this spring. Seen at London and New York Fashion Week, the look is satin or matte lip color with very minimal eyeshadow and blush. The lips should be the standout feature of the face.

Sephora Collection – Pastel Pop Jumbo Glossy Lip Pencil in Orange, $10

This jumbo pencil from Sephora can be used on the lips and cheeks for an all-over look, with a feel of a balm with the look of a gloss.



NARS Heat Wave

NARS Heat Wave

NARS – Heat Wave, $26

NARS brings us the semi-matte orange-red lip look that is quite the sizzling number.

This long-lasting bold color features a full-pigmented look, so this is not for the faint of heart.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture – Vernis A Levres Glossy Stain

YSL Rouge Pur Couture – Vernis A Levres Glossy Stain

Just peachy !

Those who are a little intimidated by the bold orange look can find safety with peach. Peach makes a great daytime color and looks great on just about all skin tones.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture – Vernis A Levres Glossy Stain,27 Peche Cerra-Cola, $34

This new and revolutionary “glossy-stain” by YSL creates a glossy look but wears like a stain.







Napoleon Perdis - Luminous Lip Veil Gloss, Pretty in Peach

Napoleon Perdis - Luminous Lip Veil Gloss, Pretty in Peach

There are gals who just can’t live without gloss, so for the gloss fans, there is Napoleon Perdis - Luminous Lip Veil Gloss, Pretty in Peach,$23

I was a fan of Napoleon’s “Set” cosmetics line that was in Target stores, but now that it looks to be gone from the stores, I set my sights on his designer name brand.

The lip gloss is the consistency of a liquid lipstick with vitamin E and C to help nourish lips.











Kevyn Aucoin matte lip color in Eternal

Kevyn Aucoin matte lip color in Eternal

Ravishing red

We saw matte red lips at the Prada show, and I saved this for last since I am not sure how daring everyone is willing to be this spring. I normally apply hot red lips at night with only a black liquid liner and soft black lashes, minimal blush. The look on the runway was absolutely no makeup (foundation was applied to perfect the complexion), but with a bold, lined red lip. The look is very defined, refined and dramatic.

This matte lip color from Kevyn Aucoin is brand new, and can be pre-ordered at Neiman Marcus. This shade of red is classic, but one of the best features is the formula which contains ingredients that guarantee to minimize wrinkles over time. Does this mean we have to wear it 24/7? Might be a good excuse!

Pre-order Kevyn Aucoin matte lip color in Eternal. Shipping no later than 3/22, $32.




MAC Russian Red

MAC Russian Red

MAC Cosmetics is known for their wide array of lipstick colors and finish choices. This infamous color, Russian Red, has been spotted on countless celebs, including Gwen Stefani, Scarlett Johansson, Kim Kardashian and Christina Aguilera.

    • Hmm, maybe this is why Trump doesn't want to attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner

      On Saturday, Donald Trump made history as only the third president to bow out of the White House Correspondents' Dinner. And while this has much to do with Trump's ever-worsening battle with the press and his constant struggle to book talent, it's also worth remembering that, to be frank, Trump probably has another reason for ditching: He usually gets clobbered at these things. So, in the interest of, uh, elucidation, please enjoy these videos of Trump getting roasted at the 2011 and 2016 White House Correspondents' Dinner. Better yet, enjoy Trump's mirthless reactions. They're uncomfortable to watch, but extremely worth it. SEE ALSO: An exclusive look at Donald Trump's Twitter drafts for Oscar night First, here's President Obama clapping back at Trump's relentless "birther" conspiracy-mongering. The Lion King is involved. Next, observe Seth Meyers insisting that Trump must be running for president as a "joke." Trump does not smile. And here's Obama ripping on The Apprentice.  Finally, here's a delightful compilation of all the best Trump burns from the 2016 dinner.  A Larry Wilmore highlight: "Yeah, Trump's campaign is inspiring ... mass violence." (Trump did not attend that one, BTW.) So, there you have it. While we're not sure about the future of this year's event, we'll always have those stunners to fall back on.  And you can always zoom in on this cursed image while listening to "Sound of Silence."

    • See the Chic Red Carpet Looks from Essence's Black Women in Hollywood Party (11 photos)

      As Essence celebrated the 10th anniversary of its annual Black Women in Hollywood event Thursday evening, Viola Davis , Gabrielle Union , Yara Shahidi , Aja Naomi King, and more stars flocked to the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., to help kick off the festivities. Union, who served as host of the night, stunned in a black beaded Prada dress that she "fell in love" with at first sight. "I love Mrs. Prada, so anytime I have a chance to wear Prada, I'm going to jump at that chance," she told InStyle . It was one of two dresses the actress tried on and fell for. The other, a Rodarte dress, she planned to make a quick change into during the event. The night also marked the debut of her chic new haircut coiffed by hairstylist Larry Sims. "He just did it, so I'm still getting used to it, but I'm gagging. I love it," she said. Union drew further attention to the new cut with Tiffany & Co. diamond bow earrings. King, Shahidi, Issa Rae, and Janelle Monae , who were the honorees of the evening, all slayed the red carpet as well. Hidden Figures star Monae, who nabbed the Breakthrough award, rocked a sleek white suit with black lapels and yellow detailing. She took a moment to embrace Shahidi, who wore a whimsical black Chanel dress complete with sheer sleeves. The Blackish star paired the look with Chanel drop earrings she joked "cost more than my life." VIDEO: The Best Oscars Fashion of All Time 5334392326001 Shahidi took home the Generation Next award at the event, and told us, "It's pretty surreal. To be presented by my TV mother Tracee , and to be surrounded by people that I love and admire and look up to and just want to hug and fangirl over, is pretty crazy and cool." King, meanwhile, stunned in a body-hugging, white lace Michael Costello gown paired with gold heels and a white Amanda Wakeley clutch. "I feel a little bit like Diana Ross and Beyonce ," the How to Get Away with Murder star, who received the Lincoln Shining Star award told us. "Like, gorgeous--everyone is so beautiful, and I love this dress. I feel magical." " Being honored here ... it's really incredible," she continued. "I genuinely feel Essence has taken me in, in a really special way, because since the first time they invited me here two years ago, they allowed me to speak on stage with Oprah . Each time they brought me back, it just feels like coming home, getting to see family." Rae, who was honored with the Vanguard award, rocked a Francesca Miranda dress she said was "the most comfortable dress I've worn all awards season." She added, "I came here for the first time five years ago, and I had just finished the first series of Awkward Black Girl , my web series. I remember just being in awe of being here, being like, 'One day. Who knows? I'm going to get some TV shows and movies under my belt and maybe they'll recognize me.' To be recognized now, five years later, it is just a blessing." The Insecure creator's co-star Yvonne Orji was on hand to support her in a green and blue Delpozo dress paired with strappy blue Stuart Weitzman heels and Atelier Swarovski jewelry, and couldn't help but sing Rae's praises. "I'm so excited for her," she told us. "She's been killing it. 2016 and '17 has definitely been her year, and she deserves every good thing coming her way. She's amazing."
