Ok, let's chat boys and girls. First things first, I LOVE a good lipstick, lipgloss, liquid lipstick or anything that won't budge on the lips for the whole day!! If you are a lipstick lover / hoarder like what I am for sure, then let's continue this chat further, shall we?
So the first thing I look for when purchasing a lip product, is how long is the wear test on it? Is it a whole day wear lipstick or just for a couple of hours. Also what I like to look for is the consistency of a lipstick. I don't like lip products that dry on the lips and then flake off a couple of minutes or hours off the lips when drinking a coffee or eating something.
Picking the correct lip product for yourself is so important, as this lip product needs to not only go with everything you wear on a daily basis, but also speaks to you as a person.
I love any lip product that can go from a nude pink colour to a bright red. It's all about your style and what you fancy. Also there is SOOOOO many lipsticks, lipglosses, liquid lipsticks etc on the market at the moment, that it can get a bit confusing on what to choose or what shade suits you the best. I always like to first test and try a lipstick out. So I will swatch which shades I like and walk around for a couple of hours with the shades and see how it wears, then if I'm happy I'll make the purchase.
Choosing the correct shade for yourself is also a tricky thing. I do like to take my time with this as lipsticks are expensive, so I don't just want to make any hasty decisions. I usually go for nude pinks, nude browns, reds and deeper reds as this suits my olive complexion best. These shades compliment me and look really good on the lips. If you have a lighter skin tone, I would recommend pinks, hot pinks, reds and oranges. For more of a deep to darker skin tone, the deep browns, golds and deep reds are just stunning on these complexions.
Also don't forget to add a lipliner before applying your lip products's, as this will make the finished product just that more rounded off and perfect! This is such a GAME CHANGER FOR SURE!!!
Anything from a lipstick, liquid lip, lip gloss, matte finish or shiny finish, I'm all in!! I just love a lip product that works and works well. Some of my favourite brands of make up that make AWESOME lipsticks etc are Kat Von D, Dose of Colors, Colorpop, Huda Beauty, Beauty Bay, Revlon, Maybelline, Fenty Beauty, Nars, Charlotte Tilberry.
