Inspired by an article I read in Grazia recently (this is my weekly treat) I decided it was about time that I shared with you my top 5 lip picks.
It seems I have mentioned Grazia on BBB more than once now. It’s a savvy read for a sassy girl. Packed with style, the latest beauty trends and current events, I love nothing more than chilling out with my glossy new copy and a glass of wine/cup of tea/cocktail (delete as appropriate). One of the latest edits was jam packed with lip products, so naturally it was time, to let you in on my top 5 favourites.
Recently discovered, this balm/lipstick hybrid is creamy on the lips. The most perfect nude, to accompany any make up look, be it a smoky eye, natural eye or cut crease. The pigmentation is intense and hydrating. Love, love, love! The only nude lipstick for me at the moment.
2. Pixi Nourishing Lip Polish
This handy little tube packed with lip polish, has an exfoliating tip, to leave lips looking smooth and soft. It’s basically a gentle lip scrub in a tube, to leave lips perfectly prepped for lipstick. It soothes and hydrates perfectly.
3. Dior Addict Lip Glow
It may be £24, however, it’s totally worth it. Skip the Starbucks run for a month (depending on your habit) and invest in this beauty. A customised balm that ‘enhances and beautifies the natural colour of the lips’. Lip Glow reacts with the temperature/chemistry of your lips, so it looks different on everyone. Personally I find my lips look smoother, slightly pinker and fuller. The packaging, is as you would expect; beautiful. The scent minty. It is the perfect nude/pink lip balm to keep in your bag and I am quite sure would suit everyone.
4. Guerlain Maxi Shine Bare Lip Sensation (472 Candy Hop)
The most beautiful, light pink, sheer lipgloss. For anyone looking for a nourishing lipgloss then this is it. The formula is non sticky, which is most welcome. I hate nothing more than when freshly washed hair gets caught in the wind and seems to stick to glossy lips! Candy Hop adds a lovely shine leaving lips looking full and feeling hydrated. Perfect layered over Dior’s Lip Glow.
It seems I have a certain per chant for nude lips at the moment, however now the (hopefully) warmer weather is on its way, when I fancy a change and want to switch things up a bit, I turn to my trusty Revlon Moisture Stay. Miami Fever. The most perfect glossy, coral tone. This shiny gloss lasts ages on the lips, is super hydrating and looks lovely with dewy skin and long lashes. The most perfect combo for the warmer months.
