The Lip Product Addict Tag

IMG_9149Here it is! The Lip Product Addict Tag – after receiving the odd comment about my preference for bold lipsticks I was thinking of writing a blog post on my favorite bright lippies but then thought why not combine it with the lipstick tag that Lily Pebbles created a while back? So there you have it, my favorite bunch lip products. I am tagging Millie C, Diana from Cardiff Beauty Blog and Abbie Jane from Alvissia.

One: What is your favorite balm or treatment?
Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip perfector – 01 Rose Shimmer

I’ve only bought this a few months back but have already declared it as my holy grail of lip products. It isn’t too glossy, but not matte either, provides moisture for hours even after the actual balm has worn off and leaves my lips super soft. I own two shades of these and while they only give the slightest bit of color I love them both and always carry one in my handbag.

Two: What is your favourite eye catching red?
Sephora Cream Lip Stain 01 – Always Red

This had made its fair appearance on the blog before as well, and for a good reason. It’s the most gorgeous bright red that has a lot of dimension despite being an ultra matte formula. This will not budge on you no matter what and stays on a good couple of hours before showing sign of wear. I believe this shade suits absolutely everybody and if you’re in the market for a new red: try this!

Three: The best luxury and drugstore product?
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil – Red Square / Rimmel Kate – 107

The luxury one for me was quite hard to determine because I don’t really own many high-end lip products. So for me at this point it would probably be the NARS Velvet Matte Pencil in Red Square. It glides on very easily and isn’t too drying on the lips either. However, like I said, it’s not my absolute favourite (I’m quite sure I would like the Tom Ford lipstick in Indian Rose, but that’s for another story).
As for drugstore I definitely get most wear out of the Rimmel Kate lipstick in the shade 107. A gorgeous color that can be layered to create a deep opaque red or lightly dabbed on for a just-bitten kinda look. This one I will probably repurchase for ever and ever!

Four: Best MAC lipstick?
Plumful – Lustre

For me that is plumful, without a doubt. It’s the shade I get most wear out of. It’s a lustre finish so again, great for layering but also super pretty in just a thin swipe. This is one of the few products, which I could apply in the dark and be sure that it looks good!

Five: Most disappointing product?
Revlon ColorStay – Shanghai Sizzle

Excuse the lack of image but as I found this quite disappointing I left it at home when I moved to Stockholm. I am talking about the Revlon ColorBurst lip laquers and mine is in the shade Shanghai Sizzle, a bright orange-y toned red. I remember Fleur raved about this but I found the application to be quite streaky and hard to work with. I’ll give it another go next year but so far: not impressed.

Six: Lip Liner: Yes or No?

The fact that I brought exactly one lip liner for my 6 months stay says it all I assume. I never use lip liner except for when I am donning a deep burgundy red. With darker colors I am usually a bit more careful, but I do actually really wanna get my hands on the Charlotte Tilbury lip liner in …

Seven: Favourite gloss?

None, to be honest. I just really don’t like the sticky feeling and that Clarins Lip Perfector I talked about is the closest I will get to using a gloss in the near future, trust me. Maybe it’s the impracticality of having to get your hair off of your lips or the fact that I just much prefer a matte lip, but glosses and I really do not get along.

Eight: Something else?

Here is a product that I love and hate at the same time. The P2 couture lip polish stain in 045 – professional attitude is the perfect mauve-y color that makes my lips look natural yet better. If only they changed the formula, because even though it says it’s a stain – let me tell you it is not. This rubs off very fast! Too bad, cause I really like the product.

    • I’m slowly getting to know the brand a bit better with their concealer and this lip pencil and am super curious to try their walk glow foundation that everybody and their mother seems to rave about 🙂

      • No problem! NARS was the first grown-up department store brand I tried, thanks to swag I got fashion blogging. I’ve had a soft spot for all their products since. What concealer are you using? Stick or creamy? Yeah, I think it gets so much love because of the diversity of shades and the pigmentation they offer. So much pigmentation!

      • Yeah! It’s pretty good! They offer the same shades with the stick concealer, but I found since they made the creamy concealer I’ve abandoned my sticks! Those are great too, but the price differential is minimal between the two I might as well spring for the creamy 🙂

  1. I have wanted to try the Clarins Lip Perfecter for so long, but keep holding off because of the price. I’m not one to be cheap on beauty products, but it’s hard for me to spend that much on a balm. Everyone’s rave reviews are making me start to change my mind though!
