I’ve rounded up my absolute must have lip products from 2017, each one has been worn too many times to count! I’ve included various formulas and a range of price points so hopefully you’ll find one that suits you best!
“If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack.”
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick: 1993 – $22 CAD
This lipstick is the perfect statement colour without venturing into the scary world of red lipsticks. It’s perfect for the holidays and has the best kind of 90’s vibe to it. It’s a matte finish that isn’t too drying and wears extremely well. In my experience I’ve gotten a solid eight hours of wear with no touch ups! Brown is my favourite shade of lipstick to wear and this is by far my favourite one.
Too Faced Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lipgloss: Papa Don’t Peach – $24 CAD
Lipgloss was a new discovery of mine this year, and this particular product is extremely moisturizing while smelling AND tasting like peaches!! My favourite shade is Papa Don’t Peach, which has a slight browny-nude undertone. It’s so easy to apply and isn’t too sticky, perfect for completing a look in a pinch!
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick: 9 Rose Stiletto – $43 CAD
Although pricey, the YSL lipsticks are a great investment piece for your makeup collection. This particular shade is in the satin finish range and is a berry rose tone. It is flattering on most skin tones while being subtle but also adding a pop of colour. These are decently long wearing but could use touch-ups every few hours! This classic shade will never go out of style.
Milani Colour Statement Lipstick: Best Red – $9 CAD
I will admit that this lip colour is very bold, but that’s what red lips are for! This is so affordable and the colour pay off is unbelievable. I would say this has more of a creamy finish so it’s moisturizing on the lips. I usually never wear lip liner with it, but it wouldn’t hurt! The colour doesn’t bleed much but most reds tend to do that no matter what. This lipstick is perfect for a Christmas party or fancy dinner date!
NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick: Sandstorm – $10 CAD
I’m usually terrified of liquid lipstick but this formula is so easy to apply. The doe foot applicator is large enough that it’s easy to glide over the lips and makes for a seamless application. This particular shade is a true nude but doesn’t wash out my very pale complexion which is hard to find in lipstick! I find this makes me look effortlessly cool, and the liquid formula lasts all day.
Hope this helped plan your makeup looks for the holiday season!!
