When it comes to lip products, I was always a lip balm kind of girl for the most part and that worked for me. Lately however, I’ve been playing around with a couple of products, some basic, some outside of my comfort zone, and these are what I’ve found that I am totally digging!
This is a basic lip balm that is automatically amazing because of its unique packaging. Give this to babies, toddlers, heck even cats and they will be entertained for a ridiculously unreasonable amount of time! As far as the quality of the product, I find this lip balm to be fairly moisturizing with a mild and pleasant fragrance although it doesn’t last for as long as I’d like. I find myself reapplying this every 45 minutes or so.
I received this as a sample from Sephora and was going to feature it in my “Gave It a Try, Do I Buy” series but I decided to put it in this post. As y’all know, I’m taking baby steps into lipstick and this is a great product if you’re looking to make that transition from gloss/ balm to lipstick. It’s not exactly one or another but rather a combination of both. Black Honey is buildable and sheer. What I like about it is that it’s moisturizing like a balm but gives a good bit of color that compliments my skintone pretty well.
I’m not really a gloss girl but when I want a sleek look this is what I grab. Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Nude 8 is a medium pink brown which I love with my skin tone because it gives my lips just the slightest hint of color. It is a bit stickier than I’d like so if you’re not a fan of sticky glosses definitely steer clear of this however if you’re looking for just a subtle hint of color with a high gloss finish then I’d say this is it. I always wear a balm bases under this to even out the stickiness as well as combat dryness and as a result I don’t have to apply it to often. It does get a little yucky if I’ve been eating and I’ve got to wipe everything off and apply from scratch.
I’ve already written a separate post about this lipstick here however I included it in this roundup because it has really grown on me. I wore it out to an acquaintance’s birthday dinner two weekends ago and received so many compliments! The holidays mean seeing people you haven’t seen in forever along with nice parties/ occasions you get gussied up for and with this lipstick I feel ready to receive and put my best face forward!
I feel like I have been seeing this everywhere lately. This probably has more to do with the fact I follow Fresh on instagram and they post quite frequently but I am not at all complaining! These products are so awesome and exceptionally moisturizing although I will say that it depends on which kind you get. For example, the Sugar Untitled (burgundy mini in the middle) verges on greasy, Sugar Petal (on right) just kind of sits on your lips, however just like Baby Bear’s porridge, Sugar Rose (on left) is just right. The formulas are all different and you’ll get different color coverage with each lip treatment. With Sugar Rose, the treatment is sheer with a subtle red tint and melts right into my lips. Sugar Untitled has no color and has a glossy finish that sort of melts into my lips but can be a bit greasy as well. Sugar Petal just sits on my lips and makes them feel a little dry so I always base it with either my EOS balm or the Sugar Untitled. As you can see, Sugar Rose is my favorite and I’ve all but gone through the entire tube!
