Lip Product Addict Tag
This tag was created by Amelia Liana and Essie Button on YouTube. I’ve been wanting to do it for a while being a lip product addict myself.
1. Favorite Balm/Treatment
Crème de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm by Dior for sure. I’ve written about it before. I always have one around.
2. Best Eye-Catching Red
I’d have to say Fire and Ice by Revlon. Although I prefer blueish toned reds, this shade is most eye-catching in my opinion. There’s a reason it’s been on the market since 1952!
3. Best Luxury & Best Drugstore
I had to cheat on this question and choose two brands in each category. For Best Luxury, and I don’t think it gets as much attention as it deserves, is Shiseido’s Perfect Rouge range. They have the creamiest and most moisturizing texture. I just love them. I love this shade, PK 417-Bubble Gum. Best Drugstore has to be Revlon’s Super Lustrous range. I love this shade, Black Cherry, for fall.
Honorable mention has to go to Tom Ford for pure luxury. This shade, Cherry Lush, is an amazing red and my favorite next to Fire and Ice. For the biggest bang for your buck, I would say Rimmel’s Show Off Lip Lacquers are an amazing drugstore choice. I have several shades and love the pigmentation and texture. The shade here is called Stellar.
4. Best MAC Lipstick
Brick-O-La is my favorite MAC shade. It’s a cross between a brownish, rose and barnyard red. It’s an Amplified Creme.
5. The Most Disappointing
I have two and they are both matte. Matte textures just aren’t my preference but I can wear them if they don’t feel too drying. Both of these do. The Cailyn lip balm range (Urban Outfitters) and Rimmel’s Kate Moss collection. The Kate Moss collection is extremely popular but it just didn’t work for me. Again, both are too drying and the color just flakes off over time.
6. Liner – Yes or No?
Yes, but not everyday. If I’m doing a red or dark lip, I definitely use a liner. My favorite all round liner is Stone by MAC. It’s an ashy, gray tone with absolutely no red. I use sparingly to make my lips look slightly fuller and learned this trick from Nic at Pixiwoo.
7. Best Gloss
My favorite glosses in general are Buxom Lip Polishes. The shade here is Celeste and looks great on it’s own or over any pink lipstick.
8. Something Extra
Lip Venom Plumping Paste from DuWop is a plumping and exfoliating lip treatment combo. I love the effect of this product and have used it for years.
