|So what do Katherine Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Lucille Ball and Marilyn Monroe have in common. Yes if you said they are old Hollywood style and fashion icon’s you are correct. Yes if you know they are all actresses you are winning at life. But the most important factor that held them together like my boyfriends remote on a Redskins football sunday is that they SLAYED some makeup. I mean straight killed it. Cat eye liner with winged tips, look to Ms. Elizabeth Taylor. You want a full luscious pout, although in black and white, you can’t deny Lucille Ball was on top of it. So how do we women of 2017 compete? I have taken these 20+ lipsticks and applied them all to this pout. If you click on the images it will send you to a direct link where you can purchase. These my dear friends and my personal favorites, and things I wouldn’t keep if they were given to me for free. Please comment below if there are any other affordable lipsticks that are killen it.

Wet and Wild Haul from Left to Right
This color is called 912 C In the Flesh.
The first three lip colors sell for $2.19 each and can be found at this link: · https://www.walgreens.com/store/c/wet-n-wild-megalast-lip-color/ID=prod6150246-product
913 c Just peachy
969 carrot gold
I love this color! It is one of my go-to colors for the summer. It has a very bridget bardot feel. That orangey color is just an instant retro feel.
a363 hickory smoked
The first top 3 images were a style of Wet and Wild Lipstick called Megalast Lip Color. This image of a363 is a style of lipcolor called Velvet Matte Lip Color. This sells for $3.29 and can be purchased at this link http://www.allcosmeticswholesale.com/wet-n-wild-velvet-matte-lip-color-hickory-smoked-a363.html#.WGctPSMrKiw
164 A Caffeine Fix
This is another style of Wet and Wild Lipstick called Megaslicks lip balm. It sells for $2.93 a pop! This had an amazing texture that especially was pleasing living in a high climate desert of Colorado Springs. The major problem with a lot of lipsticks is that they dry out your lips terribly. This helped add a nice pigmented tint while also moisturizing.

The last image is a style called megalast 922a cherry on top. The reason I did not take a photo of what this looks like is because it creates a red vinyl on your lips that is very difficult to remove and I was not going to be wrapping these pups up so early in the game.
Next up NYX
NYX is one of my absolute affordable brands. I never knew of the brand until Youtube started teaching me how to be a true makeup loving woman. I grew up in a pretty natural beauty centric household and watch Youtube videos to teach me hot to do just about everything including fixing transmissions, cat eye liner how-to, how to use your straightener as a curling iron and natural remedies for a soar throat. Here is my small but much loved collection on NYX Lip.
- Soft matte lip cream 04 london
- Liquid suede club hopper
- Simply nude sable
- Mat siren
- Butter gloss apple strudel
NOT PICTURED! The amazing NYX Lip Pallet. I am planning on doing a separate article about how amazing and convenient this pallet is. Take my word for it, it is creamy, pigmented, great to mix like a painters pallet and great for a nude selection.
- Lip balm spf 15 nude
- Elf matte lip color in coral
- Fiji fling
I just have to talk about how much I, shockingly, love these colors. Creamy, pigmented, beautiful and clever named. The only problem is this is your typical very smudgy lipstick full of lipstick teeth and alligator tail chin.
- POP in Peony petal
- Pixi tinted brilliance balm in pretty pink
- Belatrix red pen
- Jcats beauty in caramel mocha the big pencil
- Liz and co gloss in

It’s a terrible brand
Mauve me lipstick- This is a really beautiful color and pigment. The major flaw I have found in Ulta lipstick is that the consistency is so creamy that it quickly spreads onto other skin, including the beautiful space below your lower lip on your chin that no one tells you about all day, that you only find when you use the restroom and look in the mirror. Wow that was a breath.
Matte lip cream in allusive /terrible
I would not recommend this matte lip cream to anyone. It takes multiple layers to show the pigmentation and each layer displays a new streak. Very inconsistent, very blah. Don’t wait your money.
Between each application of my lips I used these Essential Oil facial cleansing wipes with Aloe and Seaweed. They are efficient and help keep my face makeup free, clean and tingly!
This was a first attempt beauty blog entry. Hopefully it helped you get an idea of what some of the colors you have been eyeing down at Sephora and Ulta look like on a lip. I am blessed with absolute no pigment in my lips, it looks like a large chin to nose unless I smile. This no to little pigment lip acts at the perfect pallet to test lipsticks on. Please leave any recommended colors to the comments below! Have a great day.
