Here is a behind-the-scenes peek at my life shop owner, crystal-lover, and serial entrepreneur with an addiction to matcha lattés and Boston Terriers.
Finding the perfect everyday lip color seems like it would be an easy task, right? But if there is one thing that I learned after working at makeup counters for years, it is this: everyone is always looking for the perfect everyday lipstick! For you, that may be a lipgloss, a lipstick, a lipliner, or just a straight up lip balm. No matter what you prefer, I am giving you a peek at some of my favorite lip products for a neutral lip that you can wear anywhere!
Lately, I have been into matte lipsticks, they last all day and they give a nice color punch, so on workdays, those just seem to work best for me. But, if you find me on my days off when I’m just running to Target to buy one item and leaving having spent $100 (you feel me, right?) all I ever have on is lip balm. Lip balm is a great go-to because it keeps your lips from drying out (obvi) but also gives you just a hint of color. But we will get into my two favorite lip balms in just a second. First, let’s talk about matte lipstick.
Now, I have to say that I do love my Kylie Liquid Lipstick. (This is the color that I wore for my wedding,) but my favorite matte lipstick right now is this one by Make Up For Ever. I love it in the “cold pink” color, but if you prefer something more neutral, the one color that I think looks great on absolutely everyone is the “Rosewood.”
I can’t lie. There are two products in my little round up that I wear just about every day. The first one I have mentioned before in my 5- minute makeup must-haves. It’s the Fresh Sugar Rosé Lip Treatment with SPF 15. I’ve been using this one for years, and my favorite thing is that it now comes in over 13 colors! My new favorite color is the Poppy, which gives you a little bit more color bang for your buck, but if you aren’t into pink, the good news is that there are 12 other colors to choose from now!
The second lip product that I wear just about every day (and night) is the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask. There is just something about this little baby, let me tell you, it is addicting. You can wear it alone, or under any lipstick to give you a ton of hydration. It comes in clear, champagne and a candy apple red color called smashed.
It’s not really supposed to have a plumping effect, but when you put it on you will see what I am talking about, it just. feels. sooo good, and it does make your lips feel fuller (or at least it does mine!) The best part is that it lasts forever. You just need the tiniest amount to get full-on hydration. My only complaint is that it doesn’t really have an applicator, you just have to squeeze a tiny bit out of the tube, sort of like a mini and way more fun version of toothpaste.
I like to carry this lipliner in my purse. It works with basically whatever lip color I have on and it comes in 40+ colors, so you are sure to find one that you love! Well, my loves, I hope you enjoyed getting to know my top 5 favorite lip products. Hopefully, I have inspired you to try a new color or try out a new type of lip product! As always, if you have questions along the way, don’t hesitate to ask!
Don’t you just love it when you come home from the spa and you smell like a delicious tropical vacation for the rest of the day? Well, I’ve got some good news for you! There is a super quick and easy way to bring the spa experience home with you by making your own coconut body butter!
