Lippies We Can't Get Enough Of | Clozette

If there's one makeup item we're perennially obsessed with, it'll be lipsticks. From matte, semi-matte, glossy...there's quite a number of finishes out there that we sometimes get into that state of wanting them all for ourselves. After all, when we're looking to quickly pull our outfit together, we usually favour a pop of colour on our lips to finish the look. 


So here are 3 lipsticks that we just can't get enough of and have been a mainstay in our beauty stash.


--------------------------


NARS Audacious Lipstick



(Get It Here)


When these lippies first hit the market, we're pretty sure that we heard a collective swoon from the Beauty Community. They have a creamy, satin finish that glides ever so softly across the lips, while giving maximum colour impact. 


Our favourite shades: Annabella, Greta, Geraldine, and Angela.

Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick



(Get It Here)


This is something we reach for when we're looking for a rich and radiant colour payoff, with a slightly glossy finish. We love the packaging as well, making it a go-to for Ladies' Nights when we want something luxurious to throw in our purse.


Our favourite shades: Saint Tropez, Avenue, Holiday, and Fireworks.



NYX 'Extra Creamy' Round Lipstick



(Get It Here)


A good quality lipstick doesn't have to break the bank. We've always been a fan of NYX lipsticks and they'll probably be one drugstore item that will always be a mainstay in our collection.


Our favourite shades: Eros, Hebe, Haute Melon, and Georgia.

Marsala is the colour of the year and has been described by Pantone as a robust and earthy wine red. At first glance, it can be easily be confused with Burgundy, a deep wine red that has been the go-to colour in Fall/Winter 2014. But in a nut-shell, we'd consider Marsala as Burgundy's lighter-hued sibling with a touch of earthy-brown tones throughout. 


So since the year has barely begun, we thought it'll be the best time to scout for Marsala-coloured items to update your fashion and beauty stash. Here's our list of 5 Marasala-hued items to get your hands on ASAP.

NARS Lipstick in Tolede



(Get It Here)


NARS lipsticks give off a creamy, sheer finish to create natural, stained-looking lips. This semi-matte formula in the shade Tolede is a muted way to incorporate a touch of Marsala into your everyday makeup look.

Forever 21 Matelasse Peplum Top



(Get It Here)


We love peplum tops and this Forever 21 top in a chic matalasse knit is definitely a must-have item to grab this month. It's a slightly-lighter Burgundy shade--which is pretty close to Marsala in our book. Dress this up with a pencil skirt or pair it with your favourite pair of skinny jeans.



Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure

Ever since Hourglass' Ambient Lighting Blushes hit the market, we've all been blushing a whole new way. This blush in Mood Exposure lets you glow in Marsala, with its soft-ambient light effect and multidimensional colour.

Get your nails in on the Marsala colour action with this Essie nailpolish in Mauves. Its chip-resistant formula will keep your fancy Marsala-themed nail art lasting all week long.



Modalu Phoebe Saffiano Tote Bag

One of the quickest way to add a touch of Marsala to your outfit is with a tote bag that easily matches a number of looks. We're loving this structured bag from Modalu, perfect for pairing with a sweet, flirty dress or with a structured jacket.
