Top Ten Lip Products

I have way more lip products than I probably should but it comes with the nature of being a beauty blogger. As I’m constantly trying new lipsticks, glosses, balms and lacquers I’m constantly finding new brands, new formulas and new products that I can fall in love with so today I thought I’d share with you ten of my favourite lip products, from balms to lipsticks I’m sure you’ll find something new to fall in love with!

1) 2true 8hr Power Lip Colour in Angelina £4.99 (link)

This is my go to lip product for that perfect matte red lip, this goes on like a liquid lipstick but then dries down to a matte formula that stays in place all day. I absolutely adore this and would recommend it to everyone who loves a matte red lip. This is comfortable to wear and fades evenly.
Try it if: You love a matte red lip, you love low maintenance products with great staying power.

2) Essence Long Lasting Lipstick in 07 Natural Beauty £2.30 (link)

This is a satin lipstick with a smooth, creamy formula. I really like this as it’s a great M.L.B.B shade (yes I just went there with the whole My Lips But Better shindig) I find this work friendly and appropriate for formal occasions such as job interviews. It’s a great everyday lipstick especially in spring and adds a touch of colour without being offensive.
Try it if: You love natural pink and nude shades, you need a new everyday lipstick for school or work.

3) Illamasqua Lipstick in Kontrol £19.50 (link)

This is a matte lipstick that’s a blue violet shade and not for the faint hearted! This does have a drier formula which aids longevity and the colour is very unique. The Illamasqua lipsticks are great for those who like to stand out from the crowd and Kontrol is a great winter shade.
Try it if: You love bold colours, you prefer a drier lipstick formula.

4) Kiko Cosmetics Luscious Cream Lipstick in 514 £6.90 (Similar product)

Sadly these lipsticks appear to be discontinued but they do have what looks to be a very similar product. These lipsticks are creamy and saturated with pigment in a hydrating satin formula. These can be a little high maintenance if you go for the bold colours but they feel incredible and look great, also bonus points for the gimmicky yet fun packaging.
Try it if: You love creamy lipstick formulas, you have drier lips.

5) Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch £2.99 (link)

Pink Punch isn’t my favourite shade as I find it a little blue toned but I do love Cherry Me and the Electro Baby Lips in Pink Shock. These are great if you want a sheer layer of colour that’s buildable whilst getting intense hydration. Initially these do feel dry but as you work into the lip balm and it warms up it becomes very hydrating and comfortable to wear, plus these smell lovely.
Try it if: You love sheer lip colours, you like hydration over pigment, you love fruity scents.

6) Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipstick in Raspberry £1.99 (link)

I personally think that these lipsticks are really underrated and they’re so good! These are great if you like moisturising lipsticks that are rich in colour and comfortable to wear with minimal bleeding. The shade Raspberry is one of my favourites I’d describe it as a muted berry and it’s a flattering yet work friendly shade to wear throughout Autumn.
Try it if: You’re looking for a subtle berry shade, you want to dip your toe into bold shades, you like moisture and colour.

7) Nyx Intense Butter Gloss in Spice Cake £5.50 (link)

Despite the creamy formula and rich pigment of this lipgloss I’m pleased to say that it doesn’t slide around everywhere. This smells like vanilla and these are super comfortable to wear not sticky in the slightest and rich in pigment.
Try it if: You’re a fan of lip glosses and liquid lipsticks, you like rich pigments with your lipgloss.

8) Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa £5.50 (link)

If you like a matte lip that isn’t too drying and that you can slap on and leave all day then you’ll love this products. The Soft Matte Lip Creams are cult products within the beauty bloggersphere and for good reason, with a vanilla scent, comfortable formula and array of shades with excellent staying power these are everything you need for the perfect matte lip.
Try it if: You don’t like to top up your lipstick, you love a matte lip, you don’t mind a slightly drier formula.

9) Rimmel London Exaggerate Lip Liner in East End Snob £3.99 (link)

This has quickly gained renown for being a dupe of the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk, famed for the “Kylie Jenner lips” this is a great shade if you like to overdraw your lips slightly to make them look plumper. This creamy formula glides over the lips and can be used as a standalone shade without drying the lips out.
Try it if: You want to try the overdrawn lips look, you want a budget liner that’s great quality.

10) Seventeen Mirror Shine Lipstick in Belle £4.79 (link)

I have two of these in Beehive and Belle, both are nudes but Belle is more pink toned which is a little more flattering on me. These are great for sheer colour, they feel very balmy and mosturising but offer a lovely tint of colour, I love these in spring and for work as they enhance my lips without being too obvious.
Try it if: You love sheer colour, you prefer moisturising lipsticks, you prefer something more subtle.
