If you dumped out the contents of my purse right now, I would bet you that half of the items in there would be lip products. I'm kinda a lip junkie. Between glosses, balms, lipsticks, and stains...
I wouldn't be surprised if there at least 10 lippies in my purse at all times.
well, pretty close....
well, pretty close....
With that being said, I thought it might be fun to do a little beauty series on the ole bloggity blog, all about different makeup items...basically my favorites of each category, with maybe a flop or two...
my "Beauty 101". The products that you just may be missing out on ;)
First up in the series...Lips!
Creamy, moisturizing, and adds the perfect hint of pale pink.
I'm not a big "red-wearer", but around the holidays, this one is simply the best.
I have repurchased this so many times. Perfect shade of cool, creamy pink.
The best nude, not too pale, not too pink. Just perfection.
These are just gorgeous. From the packaging to the product, simply luxurious.
My favorite is #1.
These colors are phenomenal, and the pigment is even better! Such great quality!
So creamy and buttery, not sticky at all. And cheaaaaap.
Favorite MAC lipstick:
Well, my absolute fave is "Hue" (mentioned above), but this is a close second. Pretty pink with a hint of lavender! Great pop without being too dramatic.
I've tried these several times, and just can't get on board. Too sticky, pigment doesn't last very long, and the clicky applicator brush is kinda annoying for on-the-go.
Liner...yes or no?
If you're going for a bright/bold lip..YES! Helps the color stay put.
I like these NYX pencils the best.
For nudes or just gloss, I skip them.
I love the way this gloss makes my lips feel - so plump and refreshed, and minty too! This color looks great over everything. Just the perfect creamy pink nude.
I've recently raved about this product. It gives your lips a great, smooth canvas for lipstick or gloss, and it's all natural, so you can just lick it right off ;)
Just ordered my first one, and I'm a huge fan! Not only does the tube have a mirror on the side (so handy!), but the applicator brush has a light on the end! Perfect for your clutch or a night out!
On my Wish List:
I've heard great things about these natural, creamy, and highly pigmented lip pencils. Can't wait to try them!
What are your favorite lip products - do share!
