I love bold lips. Be it pink, purple, red: any colour that stands out. Here are a few of my favourite lip products.
Piz Buin IN SUN Sun Lipstick – I use this several times everyday through summer and winter. It helps to keep my lips moisturised and soft, ready for lipstick. It also smells divine without me wanting to lick it all off of my lips. An added bonus is the fact that is has an SPF of 30. If any of you are like me and have burnt your lips whilst out in the sun as it’s the place you always forget to put suncream, you’ll know the pain that comes with it. I like to keep my lips protected so as not to get into that situation again. I’m not sure if it’s still available in shops but should be come summer.
Maybelline Color Senstional Lip Liner in shade 540 Hollywood Red (£3.99) – This is one of the best lip liners I’ve used and the colour is so intense and matches many of my favourite lipsticks. It’s long lasting and doesn’t smudge too easily. It’s great as a base or sometimes I use it on it’s own all over the lips as the colour is amazing.
Sleek Pout Paint (£4.99) – These highly pigmented lip stains offer full coverage and a very strong colour that lasts hours. Applied with a lip brush, once it’s dry it doesn’t really come off when you drink and the colour intensity lasts without having to reapply throughout the night. I usually use a lip liner underneath, just to define the shape of my lip more but it can be applied straight to the lips. Another great feature is that you can mix the colours together to make your own shade. They have blue and white pout paint purely to be used for mixing
Sleek True Colour Lip Stick (£4.99) – Sleek lipsticks offer a range of different and exciting colours. I have 8 so far but I want the whole collection. There are matte and sheen lipsticks which gives a wider option for different looks. They are long lasting and highly pigmented. My personal favourites are Mystic: which is a matte dark pinky purple colour, Amped: which is a matte bright pink, and Smother: which is a sheen dark cherry purply red.
Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick in shade 107 Wine (£5.49) – This is my all time favourite lipstick at the moment. Its rich matte colour lasts on my lips without needing to reapply. I wear it during the day or for a more glam’d up look with a stronger eye at night. I feel it helps make any makeup look more distinctive and powerful. I also love that you can build the colour making it as light or dark as you please. I recommend this product to anyone who loves a strong dark red lip!
I’m still discovering many more lip products and would love to hear your favourites! Are there any products that you feel stand out from the crowd?
Peace and love…
