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!
