Today I wanted to share with you guys my favorite lip products. It took me a while to even find some great shades for my skin tone I was always so self conscious about that because I didn’t think I could pull off a lot of colors. But once I played around with different products I finally branched out and found some really amazing colors and products. I have a nice range to talk about in this post so lets get started.
One major thing for me to have nice lips were to always take care of them. I mean before you put on any type of lipstick or liquid lip you would want to have a base on your lips so that the application goes on smooth. I have come across two products that work really well for me. One is the Aquaphor Lip Therapy and the other is the Bath and Body Works Vanilla Mint Mentha Shine. These two products really help your lips stay so smooth and it makes the application for applying anything on your lips just great. If you are looking for anything in that area these two will do the trick for you.
My favorite lip liners have to be from NYX and Jordana. I love them so much they both apply very well and are super pigmented. They are also great to use with dark colors because it really helps you guide to wear your lip product is suppose to go. They both are affordable so you can’t beat that. The difference between them is that the Jordana lip liners are more creamier than the NYX one but they still both work very well. I recommend you trying some of these out.
Lip gloss. I really don’t wear to many of these anymore but when I do I love the Butter Glosses by NYX. They really are to me the best. They give your lips that shine but their not super sticky. That is why I really prefer these because I really don’t like that sticky feeling anymore because my hair always gets stuck on it 😦 I know that has probably happened to many of you as well. They are very inexpensive and I just love them. Another lip gloss I really enjoy are the ones by Milani. They are super pigmented and are not sticky, these as well are very comfortable to wear I enjoy them a lot. The shades are really pretty and they apply so nice on the lips.
Lipsticks !! Oh how I have had a love and hate relationship with these. Like I mentioned in the beginning of the post I have had problems but finally I found some that work really well for me. I have a couple that are my staple favorites that I would like to share with you. First up are the Milani Lipsticks. I really like them so much for a while those were the only ones I would use. They go on creamy and are very pigmented. They last longer when you wear a lip liner but we all know after a certain amount of hours they tend to wear off. They have tons of shades and now they even have a Matte Collection my drugstore is always sold out so I have yet to try them. I really like them , the price is great and so is the quality.
Another brand of lipsticks I enjoy are the Wet n Wild. Their lipsticks run from 1.99-2.99 and they are AMAZING. These to me are some of the best drugstore lipsticks. They have a nice range of colors and the quality is amazing. They are extremely pigmented and last a long time. These would probably be my number one favorite lipsticks right now. The quality is really so great for their affordable price definitely something everyone should have in their collection.
The next drugstore lipstick i love is of course Maybelline. I own two and I love them.Very hydrating on the lips so they are very comfortable to wear. They have a lot of collections to choose from and yes they are very affordable. To me Maybelline has some really great nude colors I think I need to pick up more. I have tried one of the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid but I am not too sure of the color yet. The formula is great but maybe once I try a different color I can give you a better review on them.
On to the next lip product. Liquid Lipsticks. They have taken over everywhere literally and tons and tons of brands are coming out with their own. I of course took a while to jump on board but once I did I could not stop ordering them. My first liquid lipsticks I have tried out were the ones from Colourpop (Ultra Matte Lips) and I really love them. Although with majority of the liquid lips the only downside is that after a couple of hours it does wear off, but it’s not right away so that is a plus. I can wear mine for about 5 hours and then a little after that it will start to wear off but I think that time frame is really great. They are only $6 so you cannot go wrong when trying them out. Kat Von D also has liquid lipsticks and I enjoy my Lolita very much. Very creamy and it just applies like a gem. Definitely a staple color for me.
Lastly, you know I have to talk about the Kylie Lip Kit by Kylie Jenner. It took me around the second time they launched with the new colors that I was able to get my hands on one. I purchased Dolce K and I really do like it. It comes with both a lip liner which is very creamy and I really love that and of course the liquid lip. It lasts for a great amount of time over 6 hours for me and it applies great. She really did a great job with this formula so I will be purchasing another soon when she launches them again.
There you have it guys, just a couple of my favorite lip products that I truly adore. If you have any recommendations on any lip products I should try out please let me know. I really want to explore more options.
Until Next Time Dolls !!
