2011 Favourites: Lip Products

Saturday, 24 December 2011
Hiya,

My favourite make up product has always been lipstick and I have always tried to find different shades that suit my skin tone. This year I came across many new brands and now I have pretty much decided which brands I am most fond of.

Taste in lip products varies depending on the kind of make up looks you enjoy wearing. I personally prefer neutral shades but I like brighter colours on special occasions.

To start of with, I found the perfect lip balm for me.
I always, and I don't know why but I thought that Carmex was only available in the USA. It is a bit silly really, considering their products are readily available at Boots! This lip balm moisturises my lips so well. In winter obviously my lips get chapped a lot more but this lip balm keeps it at bay! The best thing about it is the very reasonable price.

Rimmel's Lasting Finish lipsticks have definitely made quite an impression on me. I now own (I think) around five, all of which I really love. These lipsticks are moisturising, they last quite some time and the colour pay off is really good. I especially love the two shades 'Airy Fairy' and 'Asia'.

Buying a YSL lipstick was a huge splurge on my part earlier this year. I don't regret it though! This is Shade 5 and I love it! The quality of the lipstick is, as expected, amazing. I like the uniqueness of the packaging too.

MAC lipsticks are ones I am sure most of you are aware of. I have one much loved lipstick called 'Gems of Roses'. This only came out recently, from what I recall, the Semi-Precious collection. I use this lipstick so much since it gives colour to my face but doesn't look like it is too much.

I don't have any favourite lip glosses as I don't wear them much but some suggestions would be much appreciated!

  5. I've heard a lot about Airy Fairy, seems a little too dark for me though. I know, I always thought Carmex wasn't available in Canada either, until I randomly spotted it when I was in line at the drugstore LOL!

  8. I also just found Carmex is sold in my county as well! I wanted to buy one because I've heard so much about them but unfortunately they have only those which comes in boxes so you have to use your fingers and I'm not a fan of this packaging
