When it comes to investing on beauty products and learning to do my own makeup, I´m a terribly late bloomer. What propelled me to actually do my research on beauty was a makeup disaster that happened on one of the most important events in my life. So I told myself, “You´re gonna learn how to do this and you´ll invest on quality, even luxury makeup!”
Two important things that I learned to focus on in doing my makeup are the eyes and the lips. But in this post I won´t talk about the eyes, I will save that for another blog post, but let´s discuss the lips. My requirement for a lip color is it should have a natural glow, with a little oil or moisturizer in it without making its shine look overdone or feel greasy.
In choosing products for our lips I learned that there are many factors that go with it—our skin color, the character of our lip skin, and the shape of our lips.
Below are the luxury lip products that are most popular. Do your research to see which products fit best on you.
1. All Day Liquid Lipstick
A pretty, soft color, shiny and creamy, and moisturizing to your lips that tastes good too. It is long-lasting and perfect for you if I want a more natural look. If you´re looking for a high quality lipstick which is worth your money, this is your product.
2. Highly Pigmented Soft Vanilla Lip Gloss
LORAC Alter Ego Highly Pigmented Soft Vanilla Lip Gloss, Goddess, $15
A goddess lip gloss with obviously gorgeous color and good pigmentation. Its effect is not super opaque, nor is it sheer. It feels comfortable on the lips, blends great with any purple tone lipstick, and complements your dark hued fall outfits.
3. Essential Lip Enhancer
A tested and proven lip conditioner which works well in reducing the appearance of fine lines around your lips, and increasing your lips´ fullness. This should also work for lips that are naturally dry.
4. jane iredale Sugar&Butter Lip Exfoliator
The biggest problem I have to deal with my lips is they´re terribly dry, chappy, and they quickly peel off. I choose lipstick that not only colors my lips, but also exfoliates and restores moisture to its dryness.
5. PureGloss Lip Gloss
Most glosses wear off quickly, or stick on your front teeth, but this lip gloss proves to be anything than that. Its color is subtle which gives you an au natural look.
6. jane iredale Lip Fixation Lip Gloss
jane iredale Lip Fixation Lip Stain/Gloss, Desire, $30
Another long-lasting lip gloss that feels good on the lips.
7. Lip and Cheek Gel Stain
It´s a semi-permanent lipstick which comes in three elegant tones. It stays on your lips like forever but kind of dries your lips, so you have to put moisturizer on top of it.
8. Moisture Matte Lipstick
If you´re looking for a perfectly bright red lips, you should dry this lipstick out. It moisturizes dry lips, doesn´t turn pink or bleed, and rolls on the lips smoothly.
9. Lip Butter
Korres Lip Butter, $12
Here´s a help I found that works quite well in keeping super dry and peeling lips moisturized. Unlike other lip products which are either greasy or couldn´t penetrate well on the lips, this one stays on the lips whole day, feels light on the skin, and smells like cupcakes.
10. PureMoist Lipstick
This lipstick comes in twenty-five colors, from sheer wash to intense hues, with vivid pigments that are blended with nourishing natural oils and super fruit extracts. I haven´t tried this product, but based on customer reviews; this lip color is worth your money.
11. Lip Stainiac
theBalm Stainiac, $42
This lip gloss will give you an effortless look and feel. You can use it on your lips or on your cheeks. The color does not come off easily.
12. Matte Lip Color
Natural yet very vivid lip color. It stays on your lips whole day and makes you feel like you´re not wearing a lipstick.
13. Sheer Lip Gloss
I love fresh, girly pink looks and I found this sheer, girly pink lip gloss a great find. It´s simply beautiful and feels good on the lips that you´ll be excited to put it on a few times whole day.
14. Perfect Pink Lipstick
Stacey Frasca Studio 28 Lipstick, $18.50
This lipstick comes in 28 colors but I pick the gorgeous pink yet again, I can´t resist its fresh and youthful look. It keeps the lips smooth and moist.
15. Silk Velour Lipstick
It rolls smoothly on the lips and gives a subtle tone-on-tone pearl look. It´s definitely high quality, consistent, and does not dry the lips.
