Seal It With A Kiss: Lip Products That Will Finish Your Look

Whether you are rushing off to class, going grocery shopping, having dinner with friends, or going on a first date, a makeup must-have for any fashionista is perfect lips.  I want to share my top lip products (Most from Revlon, sorry I'm a bit obsessed with them at the moment) that are sure to enhance your look. 

No. 1: Classic Red Lips

Lip Color: 090 True Red, Revlon Colorburst Lipstick
Why It Makes the List: This lipstick has a creamy texture that lasts without drying the lips.  It has a beautiful glossy finish and rich color. This product is a part of Marie Claire's Top 25 Beauty Products. 


The Look:  If you are wearing a red lip, you will want to keep the rest of your makeup simple.  Stick to the basics- A foundation with good coverage, neutral eye makeup with black liner along the lashes and volumizing mascara.  You want the lips to be the statement here.


Tip: If you do a bold color on the lips it is best to use a lip liner like Revlon ColorStay Lip Liner

 

No. 2: Pretty in Pink

The Color: 09 Rock Candy, Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss
Why It Makes the List:  This is the first gloss I've found that lasts for hours without being sticky.  The gloss has tiny flecks of sparkle that add a nice shimmer without looking frosty.   The shade is perfect for a natural, polished look. 

The Look:  A smoky brown eye or pink shadows like those from the Naked Palette by Urban Decay would be great for this look.  Light pink blush on the cheeks and some highlighter on the cheekbones will make this a naturally glowing look.


Tip: Before applying lip products, make sure you've exfoliated your lips. The easiest way-gently move a damp toothbrush in circular motions across your lips.

 

No. 3:  Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

The Color: Peach Parfait, Revlon Lip Butters
Why It Made the List: This has become my version of chapstick. It is super easy to apply and  it makes your lips feel hydrated and smooth. This color has sparkles that look great but can feel a little gritty on the lips after a while.  I have other lip butters without the sparkles and have found them very comfortable to wear.  That being said, I can deal with the gritty feeling because I absolutely love this color!


The Look: This is a punch of color and shine that can be paired with a bright eyeliner for a bit of edgy summer fun.  Using a bright colored liner along your waterline will not only brighten your eyes but will also add some drama to your daytime look. 


Tip: When lining the eyes with a bright color use a nude eyeshadow just to even out any discoloration on the lids.  Let the liner do the work.

 

 Swatches:


From L to R: Revlon Lip Liner in Red, True Red Revlon, Estee Lauder Rock Candy, Peach Parfait Lip Butter, and not mentioned but shortlisted- Just Bitten Revlon Lip Stain in Forbidden.
