I Wonder: "What's the best Lipstick Shade for Special Events?"

Happy weekend gorgeousness!!! I will be off for a super early gig this morning so I won't look gorgeous at all! lol Since I will be on a gig for a special "Prenup" photo shoot, it is given that the "bride-to-be" should look gorgeous on photos on ALL angles. What's the best eye makeup? What's the best blush on?? And I've realized that I haven't tackled much about the "best lipstick" for very special moments.

When I was browsing through my lipstick collection, I've always wanted something "perfect" for events like Weddings, Engagements, my dear friend Beatrilicious, told me about the "This Is It" lipstick for all occasions! I researched...and she's right. Everyone's raving about MAC's Satin Lipstick in Twig! Twig doesn't sound right on special occasions BUT, it does look right!

MAC's Twig is known for it's soft muted brownish-pink color, which has a Satin Finish that is color-rich, soft satin, semi-matte finish and conditions while adding intense color. No wonder it's said to be a must have for any make-up artist. Check out the swatch on my lips!



Now, I wonder:

"What's the Best Lipstick Shade for special occasion?"

I am excited to know!!!
Gosh, I have a feeling there will be so many brands and shades that would pop up!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  5. One can never go wrong with muted brownish-pink lippies. I think I own about 4 of that particular shade. It goes perfect with everything. It's subdued but very flattering.

  6. What an interesting question, Nikki! For me it totally depends on the special occasion and what eye makeup I'm wearing. I tend to go with bright pink or coral reds though. Laura Mercier stickgloss in Sugar Plum and Dior Addict HS in Gipsy Red are two of my favorites.

  13. Kahani, hey! no worries, I'm glad to share what I learn, and this twig is really a nice "have" for our makeup collection, I don't own a lot of MAC lipsticks but I want to make sure those I own are great for myself and gigs! :)

    M, hahahah yes, I can see you wearing it!

    Crystal, dupe? I think Clinique in Blushing Nude looks almost the same as this..

    Iyah, Strayin' ! I didn't purchase any HK collection, I feel bad, the lipsticks are great in HK collection!

  14. Twig looks so nice on you but it is way too dark coral toned for my liking. I love Viva Glam V for special occasions.

  16. Twig is a pretty color :) My go-to lipstick is MAC Cosmo, somewhat similar to Twig, but more pink.

  17. That is such a pretty shade! I don't have a lipstick for special occasion. It depends on what I'm wearing and what occasion it is but usually I go for some soft pink lippie.
