Beauty: Current Favourite Lip Products

Larkspur Vintage | Current Favourite Lip ProductsGIVIN’ YOU LIP

This summer I’ve been steering away from bright red lips and have since replaced them with light pinks, nudes and softer reds. I still love bright classic reds and and my all time fav, orangey reds, but this summer’s makeup has been about a fresh, natural face and with that, softer lips. I thought I’d share my favourite lip colours at the moment, one of which I have already spoken about here, but still love as much as the day I got it, so it’s worth mentioning in this roundup.

I’ve pretty much avoided glosses since, well, always. The ones I had used just made my lips sticky and didn’t have much pigment to them. I started to feel like, what the eff is the point of glosses? To make my hair stick to my lips. Ya no thnx. But once I tried NYX’s butter glosses (I have a couple other shades, but this is by far my fav), I was a convert. I love this gloss – it isn’t overly sticky and has an excellent coral pink pigment. I haven’t ventured much into the gloss department, so I’m sure there are tons of similar products out there with great pigment and little stickyness. You should tell me about them, maybe.Larkspur Vintage | Current Favourite Lip ProductsTeeez Cosmetics Sealed with a Kiss Lipduo: Dash of Plum
I was introduced to this cosmetic brand when they reached out to have me try a few of their products, and with such adorable packaging (and who doesnt like getting free makeup?) I thought why the heck not?! Indeed a true plum shade, which is more suited to the colder seasons, but what I have been doing is dabbing a slight bit onto my lips and then rubbing it in with my finger to give a more natural, however, much more alive look to my lips. I will say this liplacquer is quite drying, so I have been applying it with a lip balm to offset the drying effect it seems to have.Larkspur Vintage | Current Favourite Lip ProductsMaybelline Vivid Matte Liquid: Nude Flush
This is the bb I have talked about before, but it has remained a fav all this time, so why not mention her again? It’s a perfect nude shade that is incredibly wearable, so for those who don’t like anything too eye-catching, it’s probably the perfect shade for you. It is slightly drying, but I think it’s hard to avoid and something I have come to expect from a matte, so I forgive her.

*some or all of these products were sent to me as a gift from the brand, but me choosing to talk about them is because I actually like them
