I picked five lip products when I went through my makeup again, to decide what to keep and what to get rid of. These are the ones that made the cut:
You might have seen this one in my autumn essentials post. It's a lustre formula in a gorgeous plum shade. It's very easy to wear in an everyday makeup or for a night out. See it on my lips here.
Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color - Crushed Plum
Another plum shade, but this time a little more vampy. This is the only dark matte lipstick I own and I think it's absolutely stunning! It lasts on my lips for ages but I'd recommend to use a lipliner such as the KIKO one in the picture to prevent the lipstick from bleeding. Even though it's a matte lipstick, it doesn't dry my lips. I need a good lipbalm before I apply it, but then it's just fine.
Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick - Discreet
I raved about this beauty already on this blog, but here it is again: Estée Lauders Discreet just makes me happy. The colour looks kind of dull and brownish but my lips are quite dark and I don't get anywhere with the pinky nudes, that's why this is my all time favourite nude lipstick. It's very easy to apply, moistures my lips and makes them look perfectly even.
The colour I wore on Christmas Eve, you can see it in action here. When it comes to long lasting lip products this is the way to look. In my opinion, the YSL Glossy Stains are by far the best in that category. When I use it, I apply one layer, wait for a minute, remove whats still wet and apply another layer. It would be enough to go with the first layer, but somehow it just stays longer on my lips when I apply it as I described. I chose this gorgeous red with a hint of pink. Not an everyday colour if you ask me, but perfect for your special occasion.
L'oréal Caresse 103 Marilyn
Another lipstain, this time from L'oréal. I heard it's a dupe for the YSL glossy stains and that's why I bought it in the first place. Compared to the original, the L'oréal Caresse stain doesn't last as long but it's still pretty amazing. As you might know, they both belong to the L'oréal company, I guess that's why the formula is much alike. I love the fresh pink and if you dab it onto your lips, it makes a great everyday colour and you don't have to worry about reapplying all the time.
These were my five favourites of the moment. I was surprised to see that none of the shades look alike, I really get some change only by using my favourites ;)
Have a lovely Sunday and I'll see you soon!
