Review on Nude lips lipstick / lipbalm
Nude lips are timeless, but maintaining healthy looking lips is not a simple equation. As girls, we are continuously bombarded by makeup brands claiming to have a miraculous lipstick formula but don't let yourselves get fooled! Try an error is really the only way to go when it comes to makeup; especially with lipstick because our lips have a completely different texture than our skin. I must confess that up until a few months ago, my lips were cracked and completely dry. I have never been the type of girl to carry a lipstick in her purse... for many years I neglected my poor lips...Maybe that's why I'm single, right? This winter I decided to end my shameful unhealthy looking lips and here are my top 5 lipsticks!
EOS LIP BALM
I had heard so many girls rave about these little ball shaped lip balms, and with all of these great reviews I simply had to try it!
EOS literally healed my lips and moisturized them deeply, I started to apply it every night before bed and I've had a notorious improvement. This minty lip balm is refreshing and I truly enjoy it's easy application. Simply open and apply!
The ball shape takes room in a purse (clutch) and is not practical to fit in a pocket... It also does not add colour to your lips so if you're looking for a fuller appearance this is not the ideal route.
KORRES LIPBUTTER GLAZE
This is actually the first Korres product that I purchase... I had tried some samples here and there from Sephora but never got around buying any... I had heard great reviews from their Greek yogurt line and they even have lipsticks that also act as exfoliators, but I recently went to Sephora and noticed these other lipsticks were on sale (my favourite word)! So I bought one!
I love the size! It has the perfect size for anyone that is always running up and down all day and needs a little retouch every now and then. I also enjoy that is non-sticky and is lightweight. As for colour, well it's not really pronounced but I like that because it gives that natural wet lip effect.
I don't feel it actually hydrates my lips... I find it adds colour and glaze but doesn't act as a moisturiser. I might be wrong, it could be just me. If you're looking for a deep hydration I would not recommend this lipstick. I think it's great to use it once your lips are less damaged and are in the healing process.
BABY LIPS DR.RESCUE
I have a friend that absolutely loves Baby Lips and probably has their entire collection. When these Dr.Rescue Baby Lips came out, I knew it was time for me to try them! I still have mix feelings about this tinted lip balm...
I love the price! It's really inexpensive (compared to other brands). I really like that minty effect after each application and the refreshing sensation I get. I think it's nicer for a night time use, before going to bed. I have noticed a difference on my lips.. they feel smoother in the morning when I wake up and it does help to treat dry, cracked lips!
I find it leaves a film sensation on my lips (if that makes sense to anyone?)... I don't feel it gets absorbed properly and the colour is not that great on me... It makes my lips too pale...yet the shade does not appear that fair... I might give it another try in a darker shade or simply buy the non-colouring one. As for now, I mostly use it at night because I'm not fond of the colour...
FRESH SUGAR HONEY TINTED LIP BALM
MY FAVOURITE OF ALL!!!! I love it! I can't tell if it's a lipstick or lip balm, all I know is that is fabulous!
It will definitely treat damaged lips and will add colour and smoothness to them. It gives that natural effect and feeling that you won't even notice you're wearing a lipstick. I absolutely recommend this one to everyone!!! I need it with me at all times and I use it every day! My lips are not pale and have this purple undertone so this shade fits perfectly with my colour. I also love the taste... Call me weird but I do enjoy a good tasting lipstick... I'm sure everyone has already unintentionally tasted their lipstick before... right? When you eat or talk, your tongue touches your lips and I hate that plastic or too lipstick flavour.. but this one is just great!
It is a bit pricey... about 26$... yet it's really worth it and it does last a while! Other than the price there is nothing wrong with this tinted lip balm.
I had always wanted a Givenchy lipgloss because they have so many shades but as mentioned before I use to have really ugly dry lips so I waited until my lips were healed to get one! Kind of like a reward to myself for not being neglectful towards my lips (I always have an excuse to buy makeup...)
I love the packaging, as silly as it may sound... to me packaging is very important in makeup! It will last a good two hours even after eating and the colour is not heavy on the lips. I bought this shade because my lips have this plum undertone so it's actually not that crazy looking when I apply it. This lipstick makes me feel a bit more glamorous and girly!
The price is $$... but if you're looking to pamper yourself I recommend your get one. It is a bit sticky but other than that I don't have other any bad comments.
I hope this list has been helpful!
