The Lip Obsessed Life

So many pretty lip things, so little time. Instead of me rambling on about my many nude/pink/peach lipsticks and glosses, I really want you to share some of your current favorites in the comments!

What I’m also interested in – what’s your favorite formula? Are you a matte girl through and through, or, are you maybe over that trend, and want all the shiny, glossy things you can get your hands in? Are you a glitter gal? Let me know!

Lastly, what are your top go-to brands for lip products? I can’t get enough of YSL, Glossier, Dior and Bite, at the moment. So many pretty formulas and shades to choose from each brand.

I can’t wait to read about your lip favorites – chat with me on Instagram, too!

    I have quite the varied stash, but I think my main categories are slightly brownish neutrals, orangey reds, and one or two sheer neutral pinks. I would really love to work in deep vampy colors but I get so nervous about picking the right shade and applying it well!

      Oh yeah – and most are satin formulas or sheer balms or stains. Definitely no glitter, and no sticky glosses. Fave brands include Bite, Buxom, Nars, and Maybelline BabyLips (basically the LipSmackers of my adult life!).

    At the moment I prefer a satin/lustrous lip. I do LOVE a bold matte as well though, but it has to be a non drying formula/brand. My favourite brand for lips at the moment is Milani !!!!!! I like their satin finish lipsticks and their liquid lipsticks. Oh and I also have this lovely lip crayon from Rimmel. My current favourite lipstick is definitely Teddy Bare – Milani. It …… perfection, the loveliest brownish pink !!!!!! <3 <3 *heart eyes*.

    I’m interested in the YSL ones. Do they make any good matte lipsticks?

    I can’t wait for mattes to fall off the trend train. I know I’ll get some flack for that but it’s just my opinion. Just for the record, I don’t have dry cracked lips and always prep before applying anything. Mattes are still uncomfortable for me. Until I find the perfect formula, I just can’t do it (Smashbox came close).
    I will pretty much wear anything that isn’t matte, even a simple gloss if I’m not doing much.
    My favorites brands are YSL, Bite, NARS, Clinique, and MJ.
    I’ve been wearing YSL’s Rouge Volupte Shine, Clinique’s Chubby Sticks, and Bites Butter Creams. I love Marc Jacobs glosses.
    I love this post, especially when the discussion is about lipstick.
