Bright colours, delicious textures, dreamy packaging… Happiness in a tube.
FIVE lip products that make me smile every day:
Beautiful Nude, it goes with every eye makeup look and colour and actually with no makeup at all because it only gives the perfect boost to your natural lips making you look always fresh and glamorous. It is hydrating, semi matte, and lasts hours without fading. You can not go wrong with Pillow Talk.
Every product this brand creates is extraordinary, I would buy every single thing if I could, that’s how much I love it! the colours, the texture, the smell, the ingredients, the packaging, the variety and imagination… Every single detail makes this brand perfect.
This range of lipsticks is not the exception. The super clever design works as a lip liner allowing you to contour your lips with the drop-shaped tip and the pencil design makes the application more precise. The texture is very difficult to describe because it feels like air, it’s so smooth and thin that you don’t even feel you have something on your lips, no other lipstick I have tried has this texture. Out of the five, it’s the most comfortable to wear.
The payoff is intense and long lasting. This is my favourite colour of the range, an intense berry/fuchsia that definitely brightens up the complexion. Don’t you agree?
Can you think of anything or anyone cooler than Tom Ford?… Film director, designer and a creator of an amazing beauty range among many other things? well, you tell me because personally, I believe that the word cool was invented as soon as he was born.
So even though his products are super expensive, I think you need in your life at least one thing from him and since I didn’t find any bag or dress interesting, I decided to go for this lipstick. ;))
This range came out a while ago so I’m not sure you will find this colour anymore, but a lot of brands have metallic lipsticks now, it’s worth checking something like NYX, SMASHBOX, BARE MINERALS, JOUER or KEVYN AUCOIN. I love the tridimensional look you get with them, especially with a colour like this metallic pink that softens the look and expression. It has pearl-like mica pigments that create this beautiful and unusual shimmering foil effect.
The only thing I find not so great is that it dries my lips out a little bit so I usually wear a balm underneath. In any case, I think this lipstick in this colour is a great option when you want something neutral but with a special twist.
Estee Lauder is a brand that I am still getting to know and it has been a real pleasure doing so. A beautiful and timeless range that covers every skin colour and need.
I follow the brand on Instagram and they had in one of their posts this lip gloss over a red lipstick and it looked stunning so I needed to give them a go. I love reds and berries so this was the perfect colour for me.
The best thing is that it’s non-sticky, which is very unusual with lip glosses, and it’s super hydrating so it really feels like a treat to the lips. I decided, in the end, to use it on its own because the colour is intense enough to give definition, volume and brightness to the lips. It has tiny particles of shimmer so it’s very subtle giving you only radiance.
Clarins! my beloved brand. I have used it for many years now and I trust every single product. I keep coming back to their moisturisers, tonics, SPF, serums, masks and makeup, so when they launched these lip oils I knew they were always going to stay in my makeup bag.
They’re infused with plant oils that hydrate, smooth and comfort the lips giving them the perfect shine and texture with a non-sticky formula. It can be worn over any lipstick to create multi dimension or on its own like in the picture below. I really enjoy wearing this colour (CANDY) that immediately brightens my days.
