Lip Products – Things I Have Been Loving Lately

I have always been weird about lip products. If a color is too noticeable, I feel like a five year old trying on mommy’s make up. Or a straight up clown. Does anyone else feel like that? I love bold lip colors on other people, yet I never find myself taking the plunge. I used to have an old boss that would always tell me to put lipstick on. Ok, I get it….it does make you look instantly put together!

But how do you keep it on? I always used to find it a pointless effort, as it would disappear almost instantly! I have been dabbling with finding my perfect products over the last few months, and I would like to share some of those gems for you today!


Let’s start with the foundation! You most certainly have to have soft, non chapped licks to get a color to look good!

Vaseline Lip Therapy – I have shouted my love to the roof tops several times for the Rosy Lips by Vaseline and my love is still burning strong. I picked up the Creme Brulee one before Christmas too. These sit all over our house and I use them daily. 

Chapstick Hydration Lock Day and Night – I am loving this find! I picked this up about two weeks ago and I haven’t looked back. I love putting the day on under my lip color, and the night…well duh! Slather it on right before bed!

Let’s add some color!



Julep – When I was getting the Julep box, one of my favorite things I received was the lip gloss!!! I use this one several times a week and it is one of my favorites as far as color and feeling go. It doesn’t last near as long as the Rimmel stuff though, but still a winner for me. I am not sure what color this is, the tube says A41 (maybe it is Graceful or Glowing?). In the picture above, it is the very light pink color, the fifth one down.


Rimmel Provocalips – I am in love! The pigment and staying power of this is amazing. I can put it on first thing in the morning and it lasts me at least through lunch, which is a huge deal for me! I picked up I’ll Call You and I can promise I will be getting more!!! This is the first (top) color. These are right under $7 at Target and Walgreens and they are worth every. single. penny. If you can find them!!! They are sold out pretty much everywhere in stores right now.


Rimmel Stay Glossy – For right under $4 at Walmart, these have been my favorite bargain find! I picked up Captivate Me and Popcorn. Popcorn, third down from top, is more of a nude shade and I love to wear it over my Revelon Creme Brulee. Captivate Me, second down from top,  is my most favorite darker shade! It is just amazing on my pale skin.


Don’t mind my ridiculous picture…

Revelon Colorburst Lip Butter – I picked up the Colorburst Lip Butter in Creme Brulee. It is the forth down from the top. I really like the feel of this one and it is a great nude color. I pair it with the Rimmel Popcorn Stay Glossy and it works great. The staying power isn’t as great as Provocalips, but it is also two completely different products.

Do you have any lip products that you are just loving lately? Let me know, maybe I will try it!

I am linking up with Joey, who still has her book on sale for $1.99 this week!!! I basically am friends with a famous author. So cool. I scooped this up and will have a review on it soon!

    Ok I need to check out the vaseline rosy lips and the chapstick night and day stuff looks pretty cool.
    my favourite lipstick, hands down is milani nude creme. i put a nude-ish lip gloss on top and i love it (like nyx butter gloss or a revlon one they dont make anymore, of course). however, like you said – it doesn’t stay forever. i did wear a nyx red lipstick one night and i was drinking wine and eating snacks and it stayed on (with a few re-applications) but more importantly it didn’t go everywhere! i did see the provacalips in walgreens but i didn’t buy it – i know, i know! i couldn’t decide on which colour. i will have to go back this afternoon and see if they are still there.

    I have heard SO much about the Rimmel Provocalips but have yet to try, I’ve got to pick one up!

    Provacalips is on my list! As is Anastasia Beverly Hills in Lovely.

    I love MAC lipsticks. I always wear a liner so they stay longer than normal.

    Definitely want to try the Provacalips! I love the Revlon lip butters, I have two colors but I want more!

    You are rocking the “captivate me” color! I have the same issues with feeling silly in bright colors and also frustrated with things that don’t stay on. Definitely going to give the Provocalips a try!

    Vaseline Rosy Lips is genius! Drug store run, here I come!

  • Reply Allison February 26, 2015 at 1:37 pm

    Sounds funny – I know – but I have seriously looked all over for that redish vasaline! I cant find it anywhere. I also saw someone post the same one with a jeweled top to it.

    i dont wear lipstick much but when i do, i only wear lippies by Bite Cosmetics. they’re the only brand that doesn’t dry out my lips!

    Wait. Creme Brulee Vaseline?!? Um yes please!!!

  • Reply Laura February 26, 2015 at 5:54 pm

    IF you see any Provacalips anywhere, no matter the color, just get it!! I have yet to find it, and it’s really starting to piss me off!!! On a side note, that crème brulee that you got me sits on my night stand and I use it both daily and nightly (will it ever stop, yo, I don’t know — a little Vanilla Ice for ya) — and it makes my lips so soft!

    I’ve found that Burt’s Bees original peppermint lip balm is the best chapstick. I have 3 tubes, scattered around the house.

  • Reply Emily February 26, 2015 at 10:36 pm

    Love the Julep pink lip color! I’ve heard so much about Julep products but yet to try it.

  • Reply Joey February 26, 2015 at 10:37 pm

    YAY!! So glad you are a rimmel provocalips believer!! I love the chapstick moisture lock too! Seriously SO moisturizing. And you know I love my Vaselines! Thanks for sharing the book again lovely <3 Love you!

    I keep the Vaseline lip therapy on stand-by! I want to try the Rimmel Provocalips!

  • Reply Kerry February 27, 2015 at 10:13 pm

    The Vaseline Lip Therapy is in my gloss bag for sure. I love Carmex for keeping my lips from getting chapped, and CoverGirl WetSlicks for a glossy shine.

    I need to try Provocalips… they’ve been everywhere lately! Lipsticks/glosses are my weakness! I love those Vaseline balms but I hate how they’re in a jar and you have to stick your finger in it, so I only use it at home.

  • Reply Kay R. March 1, 2015 at 5:43 pm

    I wan to try the provocalips! I keep seeing them. I actually love all these colours!
