My lipstick pick as seen in Well + Good!

Well+Good lara eurdolian
Can we talk about how excited I am to be featured in Well+Good!? I’ve been reading their site probably since they first launched and they are such an authority in all things wellness and health and such a resource for navigating the non-toxic, naturals beauty world. Between them and Credo (which is like the Sephora of non-toxic, more natural beauty brands), I’ve become so much more inspired and educated on clean beauty.
In the post they feature 5 bloggers and we each pick our favorite lipstick shade that will look good on most anyone, (you can read the full post HERE). I had such a blast testing out so many shades, I wanted to share some other top picks from my favorite non-toxic beauty brands:
1. Nu Evolution Lip Stick in Allure (as seen in Well+Good) – Simply put, it’s the perfect nude! And one of the first that doesn’t make me look like a corpse.
2. Kosas in shade Thrillest – Reds can be intimidating but this orange-red is vibrant without being in your face and makes a statement without being overpowering. It’s very wearable and perfect for the holiday season!”
3. Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Satin Lip Cream in shade #18 Sonoma – A soft pink that feel amazing on! It’s like putting on a lip oil, you just want to rub your lips together and bask in all the good-for-your-lips ingredients in the formula.
4. Burt’s Bees Lipstick in shade #513 Doused Rose – I’m a big fan of the Burt’s Bees lipsticks. All offer the intensity of the shades seen in the packaging and are so moisturizing. Plus they help soften and condition lips for up to 8 hours. Doused Rose is the perfect everyday pink that flatters most skin tones.
5. 100% Pure Cocoa Butter Semi-Matte Lipstick in shade Marrakesh – A nice bright, fuchsia lipstick pops on so many skin tones. This one is stunning, and the fact that it’s matte and moisturizing at the same time and packs this much pigment makes it one for the books. And by books I mean your makeup case.

Ilia Launches New Shades for Fall


As many of you know I’ve been on my naturals kick lately and one brand I’ve been seeing forever and dying to try is ILIA. Their signature lipsticks feature 72% certified organic ingredients that off a creamy, soft finish. For fall they have added three new shades: Madam Mina (nude mauve) and The Brides (warm nude) are limited edition and Lucy’s Party (blood red), will be part of their permanent collection. Just look at that sheen!


All shades are true to shade with buildable color. They go on beautifully and feel amazing and lightweight on. The names of the three new lipsticks are inspired by the leading characters of Francis Ford Coppola’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula from the 90s.

Lipstick is my Vice Blackmail Palette


No really, Lipstick is my vice. Even after being in the beauty industry for over ten years, it’s still a thrill opening a gorgeous lipstick shade.  I was really fortunate to be apart of the Urban Decay mega lipstick launch a couple of months ago, back in May, when the did a complete lipstick revamp launching 100 reformulated shades (74 of which were completely new!) as part of the Vice Lipstick collection ($17 each). They teamed up with 100 influencers for each to be the face of one of the shades.


Being the bright pink queen that I am, I was matched with shade, Jilted (you can see the whole lookbook and everyone featured HERE). It was pretty surreal to see my face on Urban Decay’s website. They really are one of my all time favorite makeup brands and just embrace color and cater to so many different ethnicities. Granted, they picked a really strange image of me — I look so angry, ha! But I’ll take it! It’s hard to believe 3 months ago i had purple and green hair and now I’m a bleach blonde. Jilted is a deep fuchsia shimmer cream lipstick with blue shift. The massive lipstick assortment range in six different finishes from mattes, creams, to sheers.

Now for the holidays they have launched two new limited edition Vice palettes, Blackmail and Junkie. They are a steal at $35 and feature 12 Vice Lipstick shades and the Vice Lip Brush, which is retractable. I’ve been seeing them all over Instagram but not swatched out and I think that’s key to these palettes since the finishes range. The colors you see in the pans completely transforms for a lot of them when you put them on. I only have the Blackmail palette, swatched below:

Maybelline Color Sensational Loaded Bolds Lipstick Collection


Maybelline is launching 20 incredibly lipstick shades as part of their new Color Sensational Loaded Bolds Lipstick collection. High pigment, creamy finish with high intensity, opaque nudes, browns, reds and a series of dark purples to navy. I’m especially excited about shade #750 Wickedly White which is a great base for any dark shade you want to lighten and have pop! It’s also an amazing tool to help ombre your lips –and can give almost a lip liner effect with only one shade on top. I’ll do a video soon since there’s a lot that can be done with a white base coat.

Pictured above I’m wearing shade #810 Fiery Fuchsia (you know how I love a good fuchsia!). The collection officially launches in stores July 2016 for $7.49 but is currently available on Ulta.com. Swatches below of the whole collection!

Pucker up ladies because it’s almost time to bathe your lips in Christian Louboutin. Adding to the famed designer’s beauty profile which currently includes a line of nail polishes are lipsticks intended to make a statement. According to the iconic designer, “An object that embellishes the lips—the beacon of sensuality and organ of communication—has to be fairly amazing. The object should inspire a beautiful gesture.” And it does! These lipsticks are magic. After much hype (and press) over their existence earlier this month, I had the pleasure of joining the brand in their showroom for the unveiling.
