I love doing these kinds of posts as it allows me to share some new products but also sometimes, older products too. My current favourite lip products are from the brands Fresh, Revlon, Iconic London, Too Faced and Bobbi Brown. Read on to find out why...
First up is the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in the shade Petal (£19.50 for 4.3g). I have a few of the Fresh Lip Treatments in tube and pot form, and they are one of my favourites. Petal is a warm pink colour and applies super smoothly on to the lips to give an everyday wash of colour. The formula is created with nourishing oils and moisture-preserving sugar to keep the lips hydrated throughout the day with an added bonus of having SPF 15. The tube screws on and off, and so you always know the lid won't come off in your handbag - we have all been there!
A more recent release is the Revlon Colorstay Satin Ink Liquid Lipstick in the shade Mauvy Darling (£9.99 for 5.0ml). I have quite thin lips and so when I wear a fully dry liquid matte lipstick, it doesn't do me any favours, but this satin formula is so much better as it keeps my lip colour in place even when wearing a face covering. There are different shades to choose from, but I love this mauvy pink as it always seems to suit my skin tone. The formula is not at all drying and actually contains black seed oil to moisturise and give you shine throughout the day and is therefore a very lightweight and comfortable product to wear.
For gloss, I have been loving the Iconic London Lip Plumping Gloss in the shade Tease Me (£19.00 for 5ml). This gloss has a perfectly-shaped applicator that fits the lips easily and the shade is a very delicate nude peach with a little shimmer to it. The formula is glossy and plumping without being sticky, due to it being infused with a biomimetic peptide, which helps to support natural collagen production to give more definition and volume to the lips. Obviously, with this being a gloss, it isn't something I wear when I am going to be needing to wear a face covering, but it is a pretty gloss which helps to boost my thin lips.
I love Too Faced products, but since I have been back blogging, there haven't been many new releases, but I bought the Too Faced Lip Injection Maximum Plump Lip Plumper (£24.00 for 4.0g) a little while ago and have been addicted to it ever since! The Lip Plumper comes in a pretty tube and has a slight duo-chrome effect which doesn't show through once applied to the lips. I expected this to hurt a lot, with it saying it is extra strength as most lip plumping products do, but this one slightly burns for a few seconds (not painfully) and then that is it and is definitely not as bad as I expected. However, this is by far the most effective lip plumping product I have tried before and so I have not stopped using it! You can wear it alone, or wait a few minutes before applying a lip colour.
Bobbi Brown have some really beautiful releases out at the moment and one of them is the Bobbi Brown Crushed Shine Jelly Stick (£25.00 for 2.5g) and I chose the shade Papaya, a soft coral red. This is a super moisturising formula that contains Hyaluronic Acid and fruit oils such as Apricot Kernel, Papaya and Sweet Cherry Seed so it both plumps and smooths whilst instantly boosting the hydration levels of the lips. The only downside for me is the casing, as you pop it out of one end, but it is so easy to want to put it in the wrong end, and then you would smush the product. The colour is beautiful though and you can either have it as sheer tint or build it up for more colour and they are so comfortable to wear and look shiny on the lips without any stickiness.
