If I was to pick the one beauty product that I enjoy shopping for the most then it would definitely be everything lips. Just think about it – mascaras look all the bloody same, foundations are just various shades of liquid in tiny bottles or tubs. On the other hand – lipsticks, lip glosses, lip lacquers, lip polishes.. that’s da shiz. Below are my 5 lip product picks for this spring!
⇢ Shu Uemura Gloss Unlimited in Artist Shade 60 (£18.50, Liberty): This is a super hyper mega glossy gloss. Once applied you can see why this product is a part of the make-up artistry range by Shu Uemura – it has got that ‘model gloss’ finish to it which not only makes your lips look extra juicy but also makes you feel a million dollars.
⇢ Shara Shara tinted style lip gloss: This lip stain was in one of the Memeboxes I received a while ago – you can read a full review of this Memebox here. I love the colour of this – quite a vibrant coral, and the fact that it’s a highly glossy stain which lasts on your lips for hours without drying them out or fading in patches!
⇢ Jane Iredale lip & cheek stain (£18, Jane Iredale): You might have already noticed that I have a soft spot for Jane Iredale make-up (here & here). What’s not to love though – her packaging is absolutely spot on – always! And I haven’t come across a product which I wouldn’t fall in love with. Plus you know your lips are on fleek (hold on – does the fleek work for lips too or is it just brows? – Keith gives you the answer here, ha!) when other people comment on how nice the colour is!
⇢ Elizabeth Arden lip gloss (£28, House of Fraser): I’ve never actually tried anything from Elizabeth Arden before (maybe a mascara once?), but I was very pleasantly surprised by the high quality of these glosses. Not only that the colours are beautiful but they also have a really rich vanilla scent which I absolutely adore in lip products! This lip gloss trio (there’s a dark berry colour too which is not in the picture) is going to be a perfect addition to your holiday make-up bag!
⇢ Revlon Colorstay Moisture stain (£7.99, Boots): These stains are such a marmite product. Some people despise them, some people swear by them. I swear by them – especially the lighter shades such as the nudes and pinks. This particular shade is called LA Exclusive and it’s just beautiful!
