Whether you’re going out with your sweetheart or grabbing drinks with a group of girlfriends, Valentine’s Day is a great excuse for getting made up and getting out on the town. There are so many different looks appropriate for the occasion, whether romantic or a girl’s night out. Here’s a look at some of my favorite options for lips.


Urban Decay Vice Lipstick: Gash- This deep crimson cream is a perfect, sexy look for a romantic evening out. The blue undertone gives the benefit of brightening your smile by making your teeth look whiter.

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick: Trap Queen- For the badass bitch in charge, this lip has a metallic finish with gold glitter cascading throughout. It’s going to stay put all night long- from sipping cocktails to the good night kiss.

Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick: Lady Balls- Classic matte red for a classic V-Day look. This particular finish does not dry down completely, and it will leave its mark on whatever surface your lips touch. However, it is beauty and bold, making it perfect for a fierce evening.

Ofra Cosmetics Metallic Liquid Lipstick: Santorini- I’m still so in love with this hot pink fuschia. I love the formula for this metallic finish because it sticks with me all day long. Tropical, flirty, and feisty are the top words that describe this gem.

Kat von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick: Berlin- All the rage in the summer of 2015 Berlin is an amazing coral that is bright and vibrant. It’s a hot touch of color that’ll add a fun edge to your look.

Ofra Cosmetics Metallic Liquid Lipstick: Monaco- A soft, warm lavender metallic that is gentle and somewhat neutral for a more focused eye look. I love adding Transcend as a topper. Seriously cool effect!

Buxom Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick: Sinful Cinnamon- When on the hunt for KVD’s Lolita I was turned towards Sinful Cinnamon. From the magnetic packaging to the delightful warm nude tone of the pigment, I am so drawn towards this shade. The formula is so soft and velvety, and there is no chalky texture when wearing this.

Stila Glitterati Lip Top Coat: Transcend- I’ve recently reviewed this lip topper, so in brief, it looks so amazing on each and every lipstick here. Gash and Lady Balls do best if you use your finger to pat it on. Since they don’t dry down to a solid matte using the applicator can get messy.

Smashbox Cosmetics Always On Liquid Lipstick: Drivers Seat- When looking for a warm pink, Drivers Seat has you in total control. With spring right around the corner this will pull you from a winter hibernation into the fresh warmth of light.

Whatever look you choose, rock it hard and strong. All my single ladies, celebrate your independence and uplift each other! All of you entangled with a partner, get gorgeous for yourself and may you be showered with compliments of love and affection. Happy Valentine’s Day to all! I hope it is a wonderful day for each and every one of you. XOXO
