Okay..so I have to admit that I am a hoarder when it comes to lip products. Because I am quite limited in my eye makeup use (due to contact dermatitis), I can be a little more excessive when it comes to lipsticks. What I usually gravitates towards at the moment is obviously long lasting liquid lipstick or lip creams.
I try to give each and every baby I own a chance to see the light…but sometimes it’s so hard to even let on go to try on the next one. I will not spend loads of time talking about my lip balms. Even though, anyone who is close to me knows how obsessed I am with hydrating my lips…I literally have a lip balm everywhere: in my car, in my office, in my bag, on my nightstand, in my coats..like literally EVERYWHERE!!! But my top 3 favorite are: Bite’s Agave lipmask, Burt’s Bees’ peppermint lip balm and Blistex’s lip medex. They help soothe damaged dry lips and deeply hydrate them.
As far as lipsticks go, I have a ton I am in love with. However, out of everything I own at the moment…the honorable mentions go to the following:
Marc Jacobs by far my favorite makeup line ever, whether it is the mascara or eyeliner or lipsticks, Marc Jacobs does it right every time. I know it’s an expensive range, but it is super worth the price!! My go-to lippie for the past few month has been KISS KISS BANG BANG for the lip creme range. It’s a beautiful mauvey-pinky everyday nude, like your lips but better color. It sits on the lips so perfectly, doesn’t dry out and it’s buildable to your liking.
A second favorite will definitely have to be Colourpop’s lippie stix in Lumiere. I would have to say that this is a perfect dupe for Marc Jacob’s Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. It’s a cute mauvey nude that suits anyone’s skin tone. This lippie stix is a collaboration with KathleenLights the youtube star. Long lasting and matte; it’s a really nice formula!
One that I have been wearing to death this winter was Nars’ Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella. Okay okay, so first of all this is in a pencil; like super duper easy to apply. Second, this color is magical and suits my skin color perfectly; it’s a beautiful red that has slight goldish undertone…make my teeth look extra white. Lastly, it’s a fun color that you can wear anytime, it LASTS all day and does not dry out the lips. I love it ❤ I even finished one and repurchased another!! Which is so rare for me when it comes to lipsticks!!!
NYX’s Matte Lipstick in Bloody Mary. It’s a rich formula that is super pigmented. It kinda slides off for me during the day when I am not careful, but for the price and formula, I will definitely repurchase from this range. It’s creamy and doesn’t dry out despite the matte finish.
Mac’s Lipstick in Faux is a wonderful shade to use on a daily basis for those who want something more subtle. This is a buildable color sitting between Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Lumiere. It’s a muted mauvey-pink with a tiny bit of shimmer to obviously stand up to its satin finish claim.
Another one I reach out for very often is the cheapest lipstick I own. I bought it in search of the perfect coral shade when I was at Shoppers Drug Mart. Essence’s Long Lasting Lipstick in Coral Calling is the perfect coral shade. The application is easy, the color is opaque and it last for a good amount of time. For the huge 3$ I spent on this baby, I am seriously amazed on the lasting power…now I am not saying it stays on for days and you never have to reapply…but for the price, I am quite happy!
Last but definitely not least, I cannot end this post without mentioning this beautiful terracotta color by Ofra. Miami Fever is part of their long lasting liquid lipstick collaboration with KathleenLights. I love love love this color because it gives me a certain glow and emphasizes my olive skin tone. The formula is nice and it does last for a long time. Sometimes, when my lips are irritated, I cannot stand it on my lips because it dries them out even more, but when you hydrate them before, you shouldn’t have a problem.
Ouufff, okay, I could go on and on about how much I love each and every lipstick I own, but this blog post would be endless.
So, what are you favorite lip products from your collection and what do you grab more on a daily basis?
Hope you guys enjoyed this post and until next time!
