I post my lipstick of the day over on my Instagram account (makeup_plus_50). It’s a good way to keep track of my favorites while also maintaining a tally of what other Instagrammers like and don’t like.
September was a month for reds, but the most-liked shade was not crimson and — News Flash! — at $12 it was one of the least expensive lipsticks in my drawer. One of my followers even guessed that it was a super-high-end Yves St. Laurent lippie. It just goes to show that makeup doesn’t have to be expensive to deliver good results.
Without further ado, here are the most-liked lipsticks of September. They’re pictured clockwise from left in the accompanying photo:
1. NYX Ombré Lip Duo in Peaches & Cream, $12 at Ulta.
2. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl, $26 at Sephora.
3. Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme in Dashing (Very Cherry), $30 at Sephora.
