Hello Hello! Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week + a weekend full of fun, smiles + memories made! I kinda had an “ah ha” moment + realized that I’ve shared so many posts on my beauty faves for the face + eyes but never for the lips ha! So today’s Friday Favorite is all about my favorite lip products. I broke it down into categories so its easier to navigate if you wish to click the links ha!
So here we go!
✨ Lip Care ✨
I am more of a lip balm girl than a lip stick girl to be honest. I love seeing lip colors on other people but for me, I feel like they either make me look dead because they are too light, or super dark. Personally, I don’t like the color of my natural lip. I feel like they are too dark there fore when my lips are chapped I feel its more noticeable + other lip colors just don’t look good on me. Plus I’m always drinking out of my water bottle + I don’t like when my lip products transfer onto the straw. Thats why you’ll see so many more lip balm/lip care products than any others.
As much as I love the following products, I must say that the BEST lip care product is WATER! Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! I really notice a big difference when I don’t get enough water compared to when I do!
Tatcha Lip Mask– This is by far my favorite lip product! It works so well + its a clean product! Not only does it nourish your lips but it gives a beautiful shine to your lips as well. My only complaint is the product is in a jar + I’m not a fan of scooping it out with my fingers. It does come with a pretty gold spatula but either way you have to either wipe your finger or the tool. I’m praying that Tatcha comes out with it in a tube with an applicator!
Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm – I bought this one because I liked the packing [I’m a sucker for packing], its a clean product + I didn’t have to scoop it out with my finger. The product is self is awesome. Definitely nourishes your lips + doesn’t taste horrible. However, the packaging, as beautiful as it is, is not good. When you first get it, you have to be SUPER careful not to squeeze the tube too much or half the tub comes out. So I do recommend but just be careful.
Lawless Forget the Filler [Shade: Rosy] – This product I was genuinely surprised I like it as much as I do. I’m not really into lip plumpers or anything that makes my lips tingle. However, I love Lawless products + thought I should give it a shot. I’m really glad I did because its great! It smoothes your lips so well, the tingling sensation isn’t terrible + it doesn’t last long as well as hydrates + nourishes your lips. It gives the lips a nice sheer baby pink hue. This product comes in 3 different shades now as well.
La Mer Lip Volumizer– Otay, this is totally a splurge item + I bought it during Sephora’s Spring Savings Event. I really was curious about it + the packing is beautiful. I kinda didn’t want to like because it’s so expensive but I admit I do ha! It tastes like peppermint + has a light tingling sensation as well but it does hydrate my lips + I like the subtle pink tint it gives my lips. I usually put Lawless Forget the Filler on top of it when I want that really wet shine look.
+LuxUnfilter Lip Balm [N°5]- I bought this because I’ve heard a lot of good things about this brand. the packaging is beautiful, + I don’t have to scoop the product out with my finger. I’ve been using it for a while now + must say I like it. It works well + fast which is pretty much what everyone wants out of products these days right? I will say that this one doesn’t give as much as a shine as the others do. It doesn’t bother me really because if I wanted the shine I could add one of the products mentioned above on top of it, or just one of others ya know? My only complaint with this product is you have to pay for shipping on their site unless you spend $100. Other than that I recommend!
✨ Lip Gloss ✨
If I’m not using a lip care product then I’m reaching for a gloss. However most of the lip care products I love give a shine so I usually reach for them. These are the two exceptions + the two glosses I reach for.
Chanel Lip Moisturizing Gloss [Shade: 712 Melted Honey]- I had my doubts about this one but I was super impressed but this. It really does moisturize your lips + gives the most beautiful champagne shine. It does come in several other shades if the champagne gold color isn’t your thing. I also like that you don’t really need a lot so it lasts a while.
Chanel Top Coat Gloss [Shade 774 – Excitation] – Because I liked the moisturizing gloss from Chanel I bought this one for when I want a subtle champagne gold tint to my lips. I’ll either wear it alone or top the two lipsticks listed below. This also comes in several different shade options you can choose from.
Tom Ford Lip Lux Gloss [Shade: 14 Crystalline] – This is another splurge item but totally worth the money! It’s so pretty alone or over your favorite lip product to give a beautiful subtle pink tint + super shine to the lips. It smells + tastes like peppermint. I use it alone or over both lipsticks listed below.
✨ Lip Stick ✨
Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick [Shade: Kim K W]- I feel like everyone + their mom has this lip stick or has at least heard of it ha! It’s a beautiful very pale pink, peach nude. It’s matte so there’s no shine to it which is fine + its also very creamy. I wear it alone or with one of the glosses on top. If I want to pull more of the pink tint I’ll go with the Tom Ford. If I want to pull more of the peach tone, I’ll go with the Chanel one.
Nude Stix Lip + Cheek Pencil [Shade: Whisper]- This is probably the lipstick I reach for the most. As I’ve said before I don’t really like the color of my natural lips. I feel like this is the perfect shade that lightens my lips but doesn’t make me look dead ya know. Its the perfect [to me] mix of peach + pink + super creamy. I love to put this on + then layer it with the Tom Ford Lux Gloss. That’s my go to lip combo these days.
