Favorite Lipsticks & A Coupon Code

Lately I've been obsessed with lipstick and have found a few shades that I wear all the time. Right now I go back and forth between MAC lipstick and Revlon. The MAC tubes run about $16 each but the Revlon are right at $5. If you aren't too excited about spending $16 on a tube of lipstick, read on to see how you can get similar shades for less.

When I'm wanting a pink shade, I usually go back and forth between MAC's Please Me, and Candy Yum-Yum. Please Me is a nice muted shade of pink while Candy Yum-Yum is an electric shade. 

I recently just picked up a pretty pink shade from Target for $5. It's called 'Pink Cloud' by Revlon and it goes on super sheer and feels like a lip gloss. If you want a subtle shade for less, check your local Target store.

Pink Cloud at Target - $5

Maybeline's Fuschia Flash - $5.50 - Identical to Candy Yum-Yum

When I'm not wearing pink, I'm alternating between MAC's Morange and Revlon's Fire and Ice. Once again there is a more affordable option for this bright orange if you are looking for one. 

I recently picked up Revlon's Siren thinking it would be a nice sheer orange that I could wear over my MAC Morange for a bit of shine. I was surprised to see that it was almost identical. It goes on matte with a strong bright look just like Morange. So if you are looking for a nice bright inexpensive lipstick, get Siren. The pictures that I found online don't look anything what it looks like in person. It definitely is identical to Morange.
