My 5 Favorite Lip Products
Today is National Lips Day! So I thought I'd share with you five lip products I can't live without!
This is HANDS DOWN my Holy Grail lip product. It never lets me down. DCT the best lip protector Blistex offers, plus its SPF 20. I keep one in EVERY handbag, one next to my bed at home, even in my work desk drawer. Not too waxy, and no weird smell or taste.
Before I apply any matte or deeply pigmented lip color, I hit my pout with this gritty balm stick to remove any dry skin or flakiness. At just $3.00 its a must have item for your makeup collection.
I love the formula of these balms. They're so richly pigmented and glide right on, but dry down matte. The color Sultry is the most foolproof color in the collection, but I also really love the deep brick red color Standout.
When I want a lip product that's got a little bit of a glossy finish to it, so I can wear it alone and not look bare, I reach for the Beauty Hall of Fame staple Rosebud Salve. It has just a hint of pink that enhances my natural lip color, and feels just a bit more special than my functional Blistex. I love it for dry cuticles too.
I make no jokes about it. Tom Ford lipsticks are a bit of a splurge. But it's the best lipstick formula on the market. And the shade Henry from his Lips & Boys collection is a slam dunk. Perfectly pinky/nudish with a bit of a gold fleck, it suits every skin tone and I can literally apply this with my eyes closed.
