I was browsing through some of my old posts and came across an old tag from 2015. The lip products addict tag was started by Amelia and Estee, and every beauty blogger has seemed to have taken part at one point or another.
Well preferences change all the time, so I thought that it was past time for me to do an update.
1. What is your favorite balm or treatment?
My favourite lip treatment is the Clarins Lip Oil. This works wonders on dry lips, giving them a new dose of life. I use this every morning to prep my lips for lipstick. It’s fantastic and keeps moisture locked into the lips for a very long time.
2. What is your favorite eye catching red?
This one is a toughie. You guys know that I love a good red lipstick. My most eye-catching one has got to be Make Up Forever’s Acrylic Lip Paint in the shade 400. This is such a beautiful glossy colour. For a lacquer formula this doesn’t smudge too easily. However it’s too beautiful not to wear. I also still have a special place in my heart for Bobbi Brown’s Red Carpet. This is stunning!
3. The best luxury and drugstore product?
The best luxury lipstick has to be my Tom Ford Lipstick in Casablanca. This was so expensive but the colour is beautiful. I do save this one for special occasions but I have worn it on a regular day at times too.
As for drugstore, the Models Own Lipsticks are beautiful and theres such a variation in shades. There will be something for everyone.
4. Best MAC lipstick?
I don’t wear many MAC lipsticks these days, but my favourite is possibly a toss between Plumful and Syrup. Both are gorgeous everyday shades that suit most people.
5. Most disappointing lip product?
The Jeffree Star Liquid Lipsticks. I was expecting these to be the most comfortable, hydrating liquid lipsticks in the world. But they weren’t. Luckily I only have two, and wear them on very good lip days. They don’t last too long if my lips are even the tiniest bit dry. I find them so uncomfortable.
6. Lip Liner: Yes or No?
It depends on the product, but yes I do tend to wear lip liners a fair amount to prime my lips for lipstick. I find that it helps my lipstick last longer.
7. Favorite gloss?
At the moment I am in love with the Buxom lip glosses. I have the shade Jennifer, which is a beautiful colour and the formula is so hydrating. This is the perfect easy-going makeup product ever. I love it a lot.
8. ..Something else?!
I am never sure what to put here. However, this time I wanted to make a special mention towards the Bare Minerals Liquid Lipsticks. These are a really lovely, comfortable liquid lipstick. Yes, they are not true matte, but they are a really lovely formula if you hate that drying texture most liquid lippies have. These do deserve more hype than what they currently have.
Have a lovely day guys!
