In my opinion it’s the best time of year for lip products and I’m sure some of you feel the same, here’s some of my favourite lip products and most of them are pretty inexpensive
(from left to right)
Top row: Revlon- Black Cherry, Revlon- Crimson, Revlon-Soft Rose, Rimmel- 107, Clinque-All Heart
Bottom row: Revlon- Red Velvet, Revlon- Raspberry Pie, L’Oreal- Juliet, Marks and Spencer- Damsel, Revlon-Crush, Sleek-Flandango Purple
(Clinque's All Heart is missing here because I may have dropped it down the back of my bookshelf)
Revlon- Super lustrous lipstick- Black Cherry- looks intimidating but can be a sheer wash of plum if lightly dabbed over a lip balm (shown below) but for the more adventurous it can be a dark Burgundy without being too much.
Revlon- Colour Burst- Soft Rose- a very brown based pink and a great break from the dark vampy lips that are popular this time of year. Similar colours are Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle but it is more brown toned and with a glossier finish, MUA’s 11 also similar as is Chanel’s Mademoiselle. Clinque’s Blushing Nude is similar but a little less pink, a little more brown.
Rimmel- Kate Moss Matte- 107- a darker plum toned red, great for those who want to embrace a darker lip but are too afraid and for a matte is pretty comfortable on the lips.
Clinque- Long Last Lipstick- All Heart- a pink/red with a golden sheen. Despite having shimmer it doesn’t look too sparkly on the lips and applies very smoothly. Overall a very pretty colour. Clinque’s Rosette is similar but this has less of a distinct glitter.
Revlon- lip butter- Red Velvet- a brown-based dark red with a glossy finish. Adds a nice amount of colour on your lips but doesn’t look too dark or too red leading to a surprisingly neutral look.
Revlon- lip butter- Raspberry Pie- a mid-tone purple-based fuchsia. It’s brighter than your average darker lipstick and is very wearable. It’s one of my favourite all time lipsticks.
Revlon- Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain- Crush- A purple-based plum with some shimmer that only translates as a sheen on the lips. It lasts good amount of time and when mixed with a light pink (Such as Estee Lauders- Crystal Baby) it turns to a wearable lilac that can work for the less adventurous or Spring/Summer months
Sleek- Matte Me- Flandango Purple- a darker bright purple with a very matte finish. Has great wear time, unless liquid is involved (but food is generally OK). Can be a bit uncomfortable to wear but if you but a glossy lip balm underneath it makes it more comfortable but keeps the matte finish
