I first saw this tag on Essiebutton’s YouTube channel, and then I saw it in blog format on Beautyholics Anonymous, which made me want to try it in blog format too!
Of all of the makeup I buy, most of it is either eyeshadow or lip products, so I thought this tag would be perfect! On to the questions!
Favorite Balm/Lip Treatment
Definitely the Original Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm. I’ve been using this for years and even when I try others, I make sure to have this one with me at all times. Some people might not enjoy the minty scent, but I really love it! And I like the thickness of it too. It doesn’t wear off as easily, so I don’t have to apply it constantly.
Best Eye-Catching Red
I don’t actually own many reds, but I really love this one! It’s the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in the shade number 111, Kiss of Life. I feel like this is flattering on my skin tone, which is lucky because I hadn’t tried reds before this, haha. It smells really good too, like watermelon candy!
Best Luxury and Best Drugstore Lip Product
I couldn’t decide between them, so I split them by region!
Korean: The Etude House lip tints! These are amazing and so affordable! I want to buy all of the shades! They do get a little drying (but I feel all lip tints do), but I reach for them constantly!
American: The Revlon Lip Butters! I know not everyone loves these, but I am someone who does! They feel so creamy and moisturizing on the lips and they have a great selection of shades. My favorite is the hot pink one called sorbet!
I’ll be honest and say that I don’t own too many luxury lip products. I tend to buy ones from the drugstore more often since it’s not too expensive if I want more than one color, haha. However, I love this Dior Fluidstick! I have the shade 575 Wonderland, and it’s this amazing red-pink color! It’s extremely pigmented, smells good, has shine, and lasts for around 4 to 5 hours without eating. I will say they are pretty expensive, so I don’t know if I’ll buy another shade. This one just really grabbed my attention!
Best Mac Lipstick
This one is really easy for me, seeing as I only have one Mac lipstick in my collection. It’s a limited edition shade that’s currently being re-promoted (I think) called No Faux Pas. It’s such a beautiful matte fuchsia that I feel will look flattering on almost all skintones. I swatched it one and fell in love, haha.
The Most Disappointing Lip Product
I have three products I really couldn’t choose between, however due to the hype around it, I would say Benefit’s Benetint has been the most for me.
This color is so beautiful, but It just doesn’t last on my lips! It goes away within an hour, which is the opposite of what a lip tint should do. I have a Tony Moly lip tint that’s about the same color and it lasts way longer for being only about $3. So glad I didn’t buy the full size, as this came in a set with some other products.
I’m also disappointed in the ddung lipstick from the F/W Natural Makeup Memebox. It’s been kind of hard to work with and I dropped it the other day and it got really beat up and broke. Not the best lipstick in my opinion. I think I liked it more before.
The Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid in Shocking Coral was also a bit of a disappointment for me. I love the color and it looks great on, but I can’t stand the taste and smell! It smalls just like playdoh and tastes salty! Not very happy.
Lipliner- Yes or No?
Not much to say about this one, since I don’t own any lipliners. I’m willing to try one though!
The Best Lip Gloss
I would have to say my favorite lip gloss is the Maybelline Color Elixirs! These have a really nice plush feel to them and they last around 4 hours, which is great for a lip gloss! However, they are on the thicker side, so if you don’t enjoy that you probably won’t like these. But the pigmentation is really great for a lipgloss! And they’re super shiny too! So when I’m in the mood to wear a lip gloss, I typically go for one of these, haha. It also reminds me of the Dior Fluidsticks too, so if that’s not in your budget, I’d give this a try first!
I love bright lip colors! I gravitate to them like bees do to flowers, haha. I love how they can take a simple look up a notch and they just make me happy to look at! Honestly that’s why I wear them all the time, haha.
That’s it for the Lip Product Addict Tag! What did you think of it? What are some of your favorite lip products? I would love to see your answers to this tag in a blog post or the comments!
