Here are my favorite lip products! They are mainly lipsticks, but I've also included some "non-lipsticks," such as lip treatments or lip stains:
1. LIPSTICK QUEEN // Queen Bee Lipstick
2. NYX COSMETICS // Round Case Lipstick in "Narcissus"
3. REVLON // Color Stay: Just Bitten Kissable™ Balm Stain in "Adore"
This balm stain is my go-to for date nights, or a night out with girl friends. It looks incredible when paired with your favorite LBD, or you can use it to vamp up a basic blouse/leggings/wedge booties combo. I wouldn't necessarily wear this during the daytime, because of how dark a shade it is in contrast to my light skin tone, but for beauties with darker skin, I'd say you could probably pull it off quite well! *cue sassy hand flip*
4. BARE MINERALS // Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm in "Pink Passion"
5. STILA // Color Balm Lipstick in "Gemma"
Purple is much easier to wear than you would imagine! As the quote goes, it all seems impossible until it's done. :p Because this shade is a tad bolder than the rest, I would recommend keeping the rest of your makeup simple. Go chic with your hair by creating a middle-part and flat-iron it straight, but be sure to keep the colors incorporated in the rest of your outfit equally as bold! Going too muted with your outfit colors, contrary to what you might think, will make the lipstick come off as a bit tacky. There is a delicate balance between looking daring and looking clownish, but I will rest assured that you'll be able to make that judgment call, lmaooo!
6. NYX COSMETICS // Butter Lipstick in "Gumdrop"
7. SMASHBOX // Be Legendary Lip Gloss in "Sugar Cane"
Although this is merely a gloss, the color goes on quite strong! It's not a clear gold glitter, as you may think from the bottle; rather, it actually goes on like a gold-flecked, shimmering taupe. Definitely ideal for brightening up your complexion during the doldrums of the winter season!
