Tag: Lip Product Addict

I have never done a tag post before, but lip products are some of my fave so I figured I’d have a little fun! I found this one deep in the archives of FleurdeForce’s channel so I assume it made the rounds quite a while ago, but I still plan on tagging a few bloggers who I am positive haven’t done this.

I tag: my sister who writes Owl in London (even though she’s not in LDN anymore), Judy from GainsBeforeGrains, Steph over at SquatRackShenanigans, and RebeccaShoresMUA! Anybody is welcome to participate, just tag me and let me know so I can see what your favorites are too.

1. Favourite balm/treatment?

Bite Beauty’s Agave Lip Mask is the best of the best! I use it before bed and after exfoliating my lips to keep them soft and moisturized.

2. Best eye-catching red?

Stila’s Stay All Day liquid lipstick in Beso or MAC Retro Matte in Feels So GrandI definitely think a liquid to matte formula is the way to go with such a statement lip to keep it looking sharp all day (or night).

That said, to be completely honest, I actually reach for bright pinks way more often than red! My favorites include Kiss of Fire from Dose of Colors, Jeffree Star’s Prom Night, and Dragonfruit from Bite Beauty’s new Amuse Bouche line.

3. Best luxury & best drugstore?

Luxury – Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy and NARS Audacious lipstick in Anna. These are not only my favorite luxury lipsticks, but also the two most expensive lip products I own.

Drugstore – I don’t have much from the drugstore but products within drugstore prices would definitely be the ColourPop lippie stix. I love Lumiรจre, a matte dusty rose from the brand’s collab with KathleenLights.

4. Best MAC lipstick?

Pink Plaid is the perfect cool-toned pink, I absolutely love it to brighten up a dramatic smokey eye. It’s a matte formula (of course), but it stays soft and comfortable all day.

5. The most disappointing?

From MAC? Russian Red! Decidedly not a “suits all skin tones” shade, I was so excited for it, but this just did not work for me.

In general… Melt Cosmetics Dark Room. I wanted so badly to love this, the color is [in theory] gorgeous, but the formula is overly dry for a bullet-style lipstick and I just cannot get it to apply smoothly on the lips.

6. Liner – yes or no?

Yes, almost always! MAC’s Edge to Edge is an excellent cool-toned light pink that [for me] is basically a MLBB (My Lips But Better) shade for for any occasion.

7. Best gloss?

Hands down, Lipstick Queen’s Hello Sailor. This stuff is straight up blue in the tube, but works with your body temperature to turn a gorgeous shade of pink on the lips! It’s not too sticky, it lasts for ages, and it leaves a lovely stain when it does finally wear off. The blue undertones help make your teeth look whiter too!

8. Something extra!

I absolutely love liquid lipsticks, I’ve written about them before, and I own far too many. My current favorites are Jeffree Star’s Doll Parts and Kat Von D’s Mother…which are basically identical.
