My lipstick preferences have definitely seen a huge change over the years. In my sixth form days I was obsessed with the felt tips that stained your lips all sorts of weird colours, then I was all about anything that looked like a crayon and if it was orange, even better. I went through a phase of wanting matte lips dryer than the sun (as I think we all did) and then if it was a product I couldn’t apply it in under two seconds then I didn’t want to know. I was looking back at old blog posts (because your girl is running out of ideas – please help) and came across one from pretty much a year ago on what products I would choose if I could only have three and it made me think about how my preferences can change in just a year. So here’s my updated options if I could only pick three lip products to use for the rest of time.
LMX Matte Lip in Cupid | I’m a big fan of everything about this product. The colour, the texture, the smell (it smells like vanilla). It’s the perfect level of matte for me, drys down but doesn’t suck all the life out of my lips, and it doesn’t matter if you go over some bits to get an even coat. The applicator is big enough to give the coverage but small enough to be precise. I also love this colour because it’s pretty much my lip colour but brighter. This on top of the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk is my go-to evening out lip of choice.
Dior Lip Glow Hydrating Colour Reviver Lip Balm in 001 | Last year on my list was the Dior Addict Lipstick in Tout-Paris and although I still love that one, if I had to pick between that and the Lip Glow, I’d go with the Lip Glow. It’s so easy to wear, just slap it on and go, and it’s really comfortable on the lips. It goes quite pink on my lips but because it’s so sheer I like how it looks. In the summer this is perfect and I’m excited to crack it out on the daily again.
Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect | This one is very new to me but I’m already 100% obsessed with it. It’s moisturising but has a lot of pigment to it so is the perfect everyday product for me. The peachy-nude shade goes with my makeup on most days and I love it. The formula is fab and I think it makes me want to try other shades.
If you could only pick three lip products what would you choose?
