Hello beautiful people.
As I went to do some spring cleaning this week, I realized that basically all my money goes towards beauty products. Anyone else? I love love love makeup and I love the way a little thing like lipstick can change your whole face!
I’ve realized over the years that I am the go-to person for a lot of my friends who want to try a new product because chances are, I’ve already tried it (and also probably have a strong opinion on it).
When I say I’ve tried over 100 lipsticks in the past year alone, I’m not exaggerating. Ask my husband. He’s not happy with our bank account. But I told him it was all worth it because now I have my favourite lipsticks – and my OVERALL favourite (at the bottom)
The best lipsticks to spend your money on
BEST ALL DAY LIPSTICK
I swear I’ve tried them all – and they all do something I hate. From drying out your lips, to getting crumbly, to just flat out not staying on the way they say they will. I have found a few that stay – including my OVERALL favourite (which you’ll find out at the end).
The main reason I love this one is that they have a lipgloss to match the colour you’ve got on. So you put it on, you can leave the stain at home, and bring the gloss for touch ups!
BEST DESIGNER LIPSTICK
Whenever I go somewhere new, I typically treat myself to a fancy lipstick from a designer. Chanel, Dior, Gucci – you name it. I’ve tried it.
The best (and only one I’ve bought again) has GOT to be Gucci’s (fairly new) line of lipsticks. They came out with lipstick a few years ago, and although you might have to put it on a few times throughout the day, it is moisturizing AF. And the colours are beautiful.
BEST MOISTURIZING LIPSTICK.
This is easy. I am a burts bees fanatic. Although it doesn’t stay on very long, it gives your lips that extra moisture with a touch of colour! Plus you can get this one in 18 different colours!
My OVERALL winner would HAVE to be:
MAYBELINNE – SUPERSTAYS MATTE INK – $8.97
Seriously guys – I am in actual heaven. I wear it basically every day. I put it on in the morning, and by about 5pm I MIGHT have to reapply it depending on if I’ve eaten something with oil in it.
This is me… after a full night out. In my PJ’s, in bed. This was ONE application at about 8pm before a full night out of drinks and it stayed on the whole night.
AND it didn’t dry out my lips. This may actually be a miracle lipstick. And they have so many colours. AND you can even order it on Amazon and get a discount!!
Let me know what you think! Definitely worth trying!
