“Luh luh lipstick.”
“Lipstick starts with the letter L, right mama? Can I take your lipstick to school?”
I glare at my 4-year old and chuckle because seriously? This is where we are.
Aren’t we 10 years too early on this conversation?
It turns out L is the letter of the week and EB wants to snag one of my lipsticks to put in her letter bag to share with her class. Do you see the sacrifices I make as a mother? Other parents let their kids bring in sensible items. You know…
A lion (toy one…not a real one, obvs).
But when your mama has a mini Sephora in your home, you bring in a luh luh lipstick.
ZOYA should be beaming because they were the topic of discussion among 4-year-olds. That reminds…did you even know how stellar ZOYA is in the lipstick department?
I mean, they pretty much dominate my nail polish world but now they’re trying to dominate my lipstick life, too? I’m totally okay with it. And here’s why.
- They’re hydrating. I mean, I usually have to wear a lip balm with most lipsticks. But with ZOYA’s, I can get away without wearing a little balm. And guess what? My lips aren’t super dry!
- They last for good amount of time. Not forever. But can I get a good 4 to 6 hours of wear time out of them? Yes! I can. And that makes me happy.
- The pigment. The intensity! These lipsticks are incredibly vibrant and pigmented. This is to be expected. ZOYA gives us such rich and opaque nail polish shades, it only makes sense that they give us intense colors in their lipsticks.
- They taste like… nothing! Seriously, this is a big deal.
I wonder if my real life friend Brooke knows there is a lipstick that would look SO good on her lips. This wine berry babe has a gorgeous pearlescent effect but I would have loved to see a more opaque finish of her. The best news, though? Brooke can be applied effortlessly.
Jasmine is my favorite of the bunch because my goodness, this is the richness that I wanted Brooke to be. Currently my lipstick of the month, Jasmine’s part purple and part red blue fierceness has me feelin’ myself to the tenth degree.
Hey Mellie. ZOYA describes Mellie as a red pink cream. She’s not my favorite in the bunch but you can’t deny how creamy and silky smooth she feels when being applied. ZOYA has really nailed it in the formula department.
I’ve never met a burgundy that I didn’t love. Maxwell is the queen in my life right now because my goodness, can I just wear this shade every single day? I can’t get over the fact that I don’t need to moisturize my lips BEFORE applying these lip colors.
At $12 a pop, if EB had taken one of these to school and accidentally lost it, my world wouldn’t be crushed. Because even though I’m on an insane financial diet, these babies are priced so reasonably.
Good luck trying to pick one of these luh luh lipsticks.
Your best bet?
Just get Maxwell. I don’t think she’ll look bad on anyone.
