I am rarely one of those people that wear one lipstick shade continuously for a certain amount of time, I pick and choose every single day, and so I love doing these Five Favourite Lip Products posts, and this time round, it is my Spring 2020 picks.
The Dr PawPaw Multipurpose Soothing Balm (£6.95) is an amazing multi-use product that comes in plenty of different shades and even clear. You can use the balm on the eyes, face, lips and cheeks and you only need a small amount per application. These tinted balms contain amazing ingredients such as PawPaw, Aloe Vera and Olive Oil so they are super nourishing, especially for the lips. The Mocha shade is a rich brown and you can use it lightly or more full coverage for a deeper colour. I also really love the Pink Peach shade which is lighter and they also have a gorgeous Red. You can find them online at Dr PawPaw here.
As I really loved the new Origins Foundation, I decided to delve into the rest of their makeup collection and ordered one of the Origins Blooming Bold Lipsticks (£18.50) in the shade 01 Nude Blossom. There are 24 shades to choose from, so there are plenty of options for different skin tones and colour preferences. Nude Blossom is a pretty nude subtle pink with a cool undertone, making it the perfect shade for every day. The packaging is lovely too, with a bronze base and a peach-coloured floral illustration on the cap. The formula is infused with Flower Butters, Crushed Petals and Essential Oils from a blend of 12 flowers and it is a full-coverage lipstick that hydrates and conditions the lips so it is very comfortable to wear. You can find it online at Origins here.
Next up is an absolute classic, the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick (£25.00) in the shade Pillow Talk. The shade is an iconic pink nude that will suit many skin tones, although they now do a couple of other Pillow Talk shades too. The Matte Revolution Lipstick comes in Charlotte's classic rose gold tube, and the lipstick itself is shaped so that it is easy to apply for a perfect pout. With the Matte Revolution formula, you get a good, even coverage with a matte finish that isn't at all drying on the lips, and is very moisturising and comfortable throughout the day. I do think the Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks are slightly on the more expensive side, but they do last such a long time and you get a perfect application every time. You can find it online at Charlotte Tilbury here.
I discovered the beauty brand Dear Dahlia whilst browsing Feel Unique and thought the packaging was stunning so I ordered the Dear Dahlia Paradise Aurora Shine Lip Treatment (£25.00) in the shade Star Dust. On the site, it looked peach but it is actually a medium pink shimmer gloss. However, the Treatment is see-through and only has the slightest amount of shimmer, so colour doesn't make that much of a difference. I love the rose gold and marble lid and the formula is gorgeous - its a lightweight gloss that nourishes the lips, and is formulated with plant-based ingredients. It isn't sticky and adds shimmer and gloss to the lips whilst keeping them hydrated. I do think the price is a little high, but I do love trying new beauty brands. You can find it online at Feel Unique here.
For a pop of colour, I have been loving the MAC Love Me Lipstick in the shade 417 Vanity Bonfire (£17.50). The Love Me Lipstick formula is quite a new one, and it is a weightless, argan oil-infused lipstick that gives a pop of colour to the lips and all-day moisture. The finish is a pretty satin-soft one and makes the lips look slightly fuller. Vanity Bonfire is a vibrant coral pink and it really is the most amazing shade for Spring and Summer, and looks great with a tan. You can never go wrong with a MAC lipstick! There are around 20+ shades to choose from in this new formula, and I definitely want to add a few more to my collection as they are just so comfortable to wear and they last a fairly long time on the lips. You can find it online at MAC here.
All the Loves,
