On our latest venture around the City, we set out on a search for the best lipstick - rich pigment and moisturizing were high on our list.  At Sephora we chose narrowed it down to four shades: pink, red, purple and nude. Smashbox, Makeup Forever, Urban Decay, Kat Von D, and Sephora brand hit the high marks.  Prices vary for you budget-friendly fashonista's!

 Makeup Forever was our favorite out of all, the red lipstick was red and not orange like most.

Though the colors are beautiful, we didn't like Smashbox Red lipstick - -too much orange for our taste. 16$ 

Makeup Forever was our favorite and had rich colors and very moisturizing. $18 and so worth it !

Urban Decay pink and nude made us weak in the knees . . . 22$

Though the brands are most a little expensive we have something affordable just $12 and its very moisturizing and I adore the rich color.

Still on the hunt for the classic red and Kat Von D got the job done! Her Bambi Pink was also one of my favorites! The lipstick stays on long but not that moisturizing.
