Today I’m doing a roundup of favourite lip products. This post should really come with a disclaimer that “favourite lip products” is an ever evolving thing. I constantly find new products to love but these four are ones that I always come back to.
Clinique Pop – ok so this is a bit of a cheat, you know I was going to find a way to cram in some extra favourites, haha! Technically this is two different products because they are two different finishes; the regular Pop and the Pop Glaze. Both are great to wear! I like the Pop Glaze for daily use, you can just throw it in your bag and apply on the go, you don’t even need a mirror. The regular Pop has some great colour options, I love Poppy Pop because it’s a very wearable red that looks great on many skin tones.

Marc Jacobs New Nudes – these are a sheer gel formula and give your lips a very juicy looking finish. Lovely texture and again very easy to apply. The case is magnetized and has that very satisfying click when you put the lid on.

Bite Beauty – ok technically more than one as there are multiple formulas included. The Amuse Bouche, Luminous Creme and High Pigment Lip Pencil. Can we just put this whole brand in as a favourite? Everyone is probably tired of hearing me go on and on about Bite Beauty….and no I am not paid to endorse them to my 12 readers, I just really love their products! The edible grade ingredients is one of the many things I love about the brand. We put enough chemicals on our face and body so if I can get an effective beauty product that’s more natural then that’s a huge plus! I know there are lots of granola hippie types of makeup available at health food shops but that’s not for me, I prefer the really girly type of beauty experience.

Clarins Instant Lip Perfector – these are a tinted balm/gloss. The smell is seriously the most amazing thing ever!! I have one of these on me at all times – there is at least one in my bag, one in the stroller, one in the car….the formula is moisturizing and they provide just the right amount of subtle colour.
