I was away with my friends for the weekend, and it was exactly what I needed, we had such an amazing time, walked around, tried new food and just laughed a lot.
I thought I’d share what lip products I had with me. I could actually have less but since I wanted to make an effort for once and have a choice I took quite a few. And here they are together with everything else I had with me, so that you’d see the proportions.
Plus, I’ve decided to share about the lip products, as regular readers will recognize all the other products as I talk about them non-stop anyway. But if you have any questions about any of the products – please leave me a comment.
Also, since I usually talk about luxury lip products, I thought it’d be nice to include some budget-friendly options this time.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector. (review and swatches) – the best “nude”
I am totally in love with this line. I have already used up 01 Rose and now am half way through Rosewood. These are absolutely brilliant, just like the glossy version. I also have two more shades which are equally great!
Rouge Bunny Rouge Lip Potion Devilish Nectar – just for fun.
This is actually a lip gloss with Chilli which makes your lips fuller. It also contains golden shimmer so the lips do look pretty. I did not get a chance to use it this time but it was nice to have options. I will write a detailed review about it at some point.
L’Oreal Glam Shine in Dazzle 201 Sparkle Shower – for sparkle.
I love me some shine and sparkle on the lips in summer. And this gloss in just perfection, it gives that beautiful multi-dimensional effect. I am very happy I’ve bought it. Swatches to be expected 😉
Daniel Sandler Cosmetics Luxury Matte Lipstick in Red Carpet (review and swatches) I am not going anywhere without a red.
I have to have a red with me, just have to. This is a show-stopping matte red, one of the best in the industry. Especially for the price, which is half of what you’d pay for a luxury lipstick, you can’t go wrong. I totally recommend.
Maybelline ColorDrama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in 310 Berry Much (review and lip swatches)– as I am a berry addict.
Berry is supposed to be for AW, but I wear berry & plum all year round. This Maybelline pencil is very convenient, as you just use it straight from the “tube” without any liners or brushes. And this berry is a winner!
I use both liners on their own, before the lipstick all over the lips or just to change the lip shape a bit. I really want to pick up more shades from the line.
I hope you are having an amazing summer!
