Matte lips for a late night

“She has a way with words, red lipstick, and making an entrance”
— Kate Spade

Hello everyone! I am so excited to start off my blog by writing my first post in 2017 :) I thought it was only appropriate to focus on my lip color for new years eve. I wanted to choose a color and an outfit to show that I was ready to take on the new year! 

When I think holidays, I instantly think RED. Because I wanted to go with a bright lip color, I chose to keep my outfit neutral to draw attention to the red. I went with black leggings and a white sweater crop top. 

I chose to stick with a matte finish (yes, I know this is for NYE but I don't particularly like gloss finishes)! The lip color I am wearing is Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in "Nahz Fur Atoo." With a full night of drinking and eating, I did not want a color with a gloss finish because it would stick to everything. The everlasting liquid lipstick is not a stain meaning it does come off slightly when eating or drinking. However, it is highly pigmented so it is a great choice if you want to make an impact with color. I absolutely love these liquid lipsticks because they are extremely matte and long lasting (link at bottom of post to purchase). For a neutral outfit, this is the perfect shade! I'm not the kind of girl to wear bright red during the day so this is great for an occasion like NYE. 

At the end of the night, I was not disappointed! It was a bit faded from all the eating, but the color lasted. The one reason I usually stay away from lipsticks that are not stains/long lasting is because after hours of eating and drinking, the color fades away in the middle and I'm left with what looks like I just lined my lips and forgot to fill them in. Not with this one! Though these slightly fade, it's pretty insignificant and happens evenly so it's perfect for a long night :) Link below to purchase at Sephora!
