Supposedly the average woman owns 40 makeup products and only carries 5 daily. This could easily turn into a post about how gender specific studies, especially about makeup, are antiquated and insulting but that’s beside the point. Imma talk to you real quick about what’s in my bag.

I own a lot more than 40 makeup products – I think I may own more than 40+ lipsticks alone. While the politics behind the aforementioned study are troubling, there is some truth to the fact that many of us own a ton of cosmetics, but only really use a few daily.

On the daily, I only really carry 3-4 lip products and a compact. Here’s some deets about what’s in my bag right now.

1. Rouge Dior Couture Colour in 080, Red Smile

I’ve been a Rouge Dior girl for years, but this is a new shade for me. This highly pigmented, matte lipstick is quite comfortable and gives off a satin effect. For reference, I currently use Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation in 3N2 Honey and this is red that contrasts very well with my skintone (warm/neutral).

2. Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment in Simply Rose

Perfect texture, ideal tint – that’s all you need to know about this stuff. Some of the reviews say it doesn’t taste very good, but honestly, I want to know who these people are cause it’s a lie. Fairly certain that this shade would look amazing on everyone.

3. Sage Tingle Lips Tingly Lip Balm

I feel like I’m living my best life when I put this stuff on. It’s made with all the good stuff – coconut, peppermint and shea. I’m actually obsessed with all of Sage’s Tingle Mint products, so good.

Diana Aldea

The name might be new to you, but Diana’s has been developing content for major brands for over a decade. She’s worked in advertising, ecommerce, broadcast TV and the public sector. That’s nice and all, but what does she know about lipstick? Aside from wearing it since the tender age of 11, she’s been a beauty contributor to WoahStyle since its inception, and actually pushed Nathalie to create the brand. She’s also real AF, so she ain’t gonna lie to you about products and how they work.
