I think out of all make up products, most of us started our make up love journey with lipsticks. I remember when I was younger, I would take my mom’s lipsticks and put it on my entire face, use it as a crayon on paper or as a marker for our glass doors – specifically the sliding doors in our bathrooms haha – much to my Mom and my Nanay Glo’s (my aunt who took care of me since I was a baby ’till I became an adult – love her) dismay!
So in honor of National Lipstick Day (which is tomorrow, July 29), I thought I’d share with you my current favorites. These are the lip products that I have been using a lot lately and I realized that I have been gearing towards either Nudes or Reds. My pinks, corals and plums are not getting a lot of love from me at the moment – need to rectify that especially now that it’s starting to get cooler I can wear dark lips again (not that I always follow the season/trends but you know…)
Here are my current favorites:
Happy Skin x Pond’s No Make Up Look – Got this free with a my Dewy Rose Gel and BB Cream a while back and I have been loving this! It’s a pretty rose mauve that looks amazing on just about any skin tone!
Make Up Helper All Day with Mat Lipstick in #006 Tuesday 09:00AM – Whenever I need a pop of color but not an in-your-face lip, this is what I go for. The texture is different than normal lipsticks – doesn’t feel creamy or liquidy – but it’s easy to wear and the color is just so pretty – especially with a tan!
Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in Bitch Perfect – Whenever I want to feel fancy (haha) this is what I go for. Bitch Perfect is a nice, warm nude and I like wearing this with a brown eye shadow look.
DHC Medicated Lip Cream – This is my holy-grail lip balm! I like using it before I start doing my make up as a lip prep and also at night before I go to bed. I swear this is the one product that can help my lips when they get dry and chappy – I put it on at night and poof, my lips are significantly softer and smoother when I wake up.
Chica Y Chico Matrix Matt Lip 01 Matahari – This is a pretty red stain that I like to use when I know I can’t be bothered to reapply my lipstick or be too careful with my lips. It stays on pretty well – its not a liquid lipstick and it doesn’t set – but it leaves a very pretty, healthy, even stain on your lips.
Flormar Deluxe Cashmere Lipstick Stylo DC24 Red Boston – This is a cooler red that I like to wear whenever I need a bit more color to make me look more awake (aka on days I look like sh*t haha). Soft formula and easy to wear – love!
Jeffrey Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Watermelon Soda – This is my other option when I want to wear a nice pop of color that lasts. The formula is soft and not too dry – a boon for a liquid lipstick since most liquid lipsticks tend to be very drying.
Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in 001 Honey – I thought I lost this and was gutted because this is one of my favorites from the Balm Stain range… until I saw it in my sister’s make up cabinet! HAHA lipstick thief!!! I like using this when I am running errands. It’s subtle, very wearable and the formula is great as well.
NYX Lingerie LIPLI 08 Bedtime Flirt – How cute is the name? Haha! I got this from BeautyMNL because I heard so many great things about the Nyx Lingeries. I just eyeballed the shade and I am so happy it’s a pretty nude.
Nichido Lip Pencil in LP04 Rosette – This is my all time favorite lip liner! I must have repurchased this at least 5 or 6 times now. I like that it is great for lining the lips and as an actual all over color… and at less than Php150.00 a pop, this is AMAZING value!
I have been loving these lip products at the moment but I think I will need to rummage through my kit and find a dark pink and a plum as those are seriously lacking in my current selection.
Now you guys, because I am an #Enabler (LOL), I thought I’d include some links and details about the National Lipstick Day Sales. I have seen a few announcements on my social media and I figured – hey, my fellow lipstick addicts will appreciate this so here ya go!
