#GetLippieTuesday: Cosmo Girl Edition

A few weeks ago, there was a crazy article on my feed about how EOS lip balms were causing all sorts of allergies (read about it here and here). The hot topic got me and Cosmo’s resident beauty girl, Retty Contreras, talking about our lip balm issues. And guess what? She told me that the EOS thing actually happened to her! Fortunately, she was able to cure her skin dilemma with the help of her derma + an OTC hydrocortisone cream.

Phew! So after the shock of the EOS scandal wore off, our convo switched to all the fab lipstick colors she was wearing on IG (follow her via @rettyacon). Other women inspire me to be braver about my lippie shades, so I asked if she’d share her top picks on the blog—and she agreed! Yay! Check them out below:

The lippie pick: MAC Lipstick in Twig.

The lippie pick: MAC Satin Lipstick in Twig.

Retty says: “If I could live on one lipstick alone, it would be Twig. I think I’ve convinced at least 10 people to get their own tube!”

Retty says: “I wanted to see what the hype was about Tom Ford lippies. Aside from the pretty packaging, the formulation is really something I’ve never seen for. Also, I’m not sure why, but my lips look bigger when I use it. Lols.”

Retty says: “The new matte liquid lippies from MAC are surprisingly comfortable on the lips. Plus, the staying power is AMAZING.”

Okay, guys. I seriously want all the MAC lippies she recommended—starting with the matte red! It’s so vivid and bright and eye-catching! Sigh, do you get why I love getting the scoop on which lippie shades other girls love now? It’s such a great way to step out of your usual makeup picks and try something new.

Which lippie are you crazy for? Tell me in the comments and don’t forget to use the hashtag #GetLippieTuesday whenever you post a selfie with your fave lipstick for a chance to get featured on my blog! ♥
