My go-to lip looks lately (say that 10x fast) have included lipsticks, balms, and stains that are long lasting and are worth the money. Below is my top 6 lip products that I have been using daily and adore! All except one or two, the Lancome or the Ulta, are available at drugstores. I included Baby Lips Moisturizer in my top picture because this lip balm is perfect to go under any lipstick, whether it is matte or shimmer. Let’s begin!
First is my absolute favorite matte: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in the color Standout. These are fairly new and cost $6.49. I was surprised that this line only consisted of warm colors (oranges, reds, occasional yellows) and not many pinks or nudes. This was the last red color in stock at the drugstore and I scooped it up! I love the matte because it off-sets a shimmery eye look perfectly.
Next is the NYX Color Lip Balm in the shade Thank You. If you go to Ulta, make sure to hit up their clearance section because they typically have buckets full of these. Mine was about $1.99 due to being on clearance. This product is in a Chapstick-like packaging so you will have to be careful when applying dark colors. When you put this on it literally feels like buttah! The mix has little beads that moisturize your lips and don’t dry them out.
This product is the Lancome Color Design in the color Sugared Maple. I actually got this as a present, but it generally costs $22.50. The color is a deep pink-brown mix that is a bit waxy at times. A waxy formula helps the lipstick dry on your lips and stick all day. Lancome is the most luxury my selection gets, but this lipstick is definitely worth it.
Next, is a new product to my collection! This is the Ulta Super Shiny Lip Butter in the shade Vienna. I received this as a free gift from purchasing something over $19.50 at Ulta. I believe this promo is still in effect and you receive a 14 piece gift that is pretty much a completely filled makeup bag. I will be hopefully posting my haul review for that soon. This lip butter was included and is a beautiful shimmery light pink with flecks of gold when it hits the light. It costs about $8.00.
The last two are lipstains. The first stain is the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in the color Crush. It costs $5.99. I bought this in Fall when the deep berry lips were the trendiest looks going. I still use it to this day even though it is 80 degrees outside. This is a balm stain so it isn’t matte like the first one. I really like Revlon’s lipstain collections because even though they are stains, they are still very moisturizing.
The final product is the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in the color Honey. This balm stain is the same brand as the one prior, but is in this gorgeous light pink color. Honey costs $5.99 as well. For some reason, Honey always seems more shimmery than Crush, even though they are the same formula. I really love this color. It is light and perfect for everyday wear.
