It’s been said, “Give a girl the right lipstick and she can conquer the world.” I have to agree! When I put on a fabulous lipstick, I can’t help but feel automatically put together and ready to slay. But all lipsticks are not created equally! Finding the right colors for your complexion, season, and event makes a difference in terms of your needs. Thankfully, Fashion Show Las Vegas has us covered with incredible stores like M.A.C. Cosmetics and Lip Lab by BITE where you can celebrate National Lipstick Day on July 29, 2021 as well as all year long!
Iconic Lip Shades and Colours with M.A.C. Cosmetics
Whenever I think of creating iconic makeup looks, M.A.C. is at the top of the list! I’ve visited the M.A.C. Cosmetics store before to achieve this amazing mermaid look, but honestly really didn’t take the time to just learn about their lipstick offerings. They provide a variety of finishes and looks depending on the look you’re going for. For example, their LOVE ME LIQUID LIPCOLOUR is a hydrating argan oil- and shea butter-infused, rich and creamy liquid lip colour with a satin finish that wears for 12 hours. I found these to be incredibly smooth like butter and the colour to have so much depth! These lip colors would be great for wearing during the day at work, or in the evening for cocktails or an event!
If you’re looking for something a bit more subtle but still providing an impact, then the LUSTREGLASS SHEER-SHINE LIPSTICK is perfect for you. Tying into all the 90’s throwbacks happening in fashion and beauty, this lipstick has a glossy high-shine finish, sheer, buildable colour, and immediate and long-term moisture. My lips felt so hydrated and supple with the perfect placement of color!
In honor of National Lipstick Day, M.A.C. Cosmetics at Fashion Show Las Vegas is offering bullet lipsticks and liquid lip colours for $15 (normally $22-$25, valid July 29-31, 2021). Be sure to stop by to snag this deal!
Creating Your Signature Lipstick Shade with Lip Lab by BITE
If you’ve ever felt like the perfect shade of lipstick for you doesn’t exist, then look no further than Lip Lab! Not only can you customize your own signature lip color, but you can decide on the scent, finish and even name it! Lip Lab creates all of these colors in-house with the guidance of one of their specialists who help you decide on the perfect hues.
I decided to create two shades: one for everyday and one for those moments when I need to spice up my look really quick, and I am in LOVE with both of the lipsticks. The first one is what you would call a “My Lips But Better” lipstick color and let’s just say Lib Lab nailed it! It is an up-leveled nude with undertones of pink and brown. It has a sheer finish and I added mint so that anytime I applied it I felt refreshed. Because I can wear it all the time, I named it #momlife as a reminder that mom life can be fabulous too and even warrants wearing lipstick!
The second lipstick color I created is definitely a showstopper and not one I expected. I shared with the specialist that I wanted to create a lipstick shade that would be great for the summer season. We ultimately ended up with this magnetic red that had undertones of orange, magenta and white added. Right away, I felt like it elevated my makeup and it felt like my own signature red. This lipstick was made with a sheer finish and to add even more fabulousness to it, I added lime so that I felt vibrant as soon as I applied it. I walked away naming it “MJ’s Red” because I felt like it was made just for me – which it truly was!
If you’ve been searching for the perfect lip colors and are not sure where to start, I would definitely suggest you make a visit to Fashion Show Las Vegas. Between M.A.C.’s iconic offers and Lip Lab’s customizations, you will be in the perfect place to find the perfect lipstick!
