These are the affordable lip products that I have been obsessed with currently. As you can see, I’ve been really into the pink nudes lately. Not all of these products can be found at the drugstore, aka the Colourpop products, but they are all definitely drugstore prices.
This is the Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipcolor in the shade Ironic Iris. I saw a friend who also has a very pale complexion wearing this lipstick and the shade looked amazing on her, so I instantly had to know what lipstick she was wearing and it turned out to be this one. The shade of this product is a beautiful berry toned pink, and it instantly drew me in. Now before I sing praises for this lipstick…it does have a couple of flaws. The first thing that I noticed when applying this liquid lipstick is the horrific smell. The scent of this lip product isn’t very pleasant, but once it’s applied to the lips, I can’t smell it, so ultimately this wasn’t a deal breaker. The next thing that might be a con for some people is that it’s very sticky. It takes a couple of minutes for this product to fully dry and if you really pack on the product, this lipstick will feel very sticky. But now on to the reasons I love this lipstick. The main reason I love to use it is because of its incredible staying power. This liquid lipstick will stay on my lips pretty much all day, and even after swatching this product I had such a hard time trying to wipe it off, that’s how you know it’s a long lasting lipstick. Also, a problem that normally occurs with these long lasting matte liquid lipsticks is that they can be very drying. But I have not found this lipstick to be drying one bit which is a huge plus. Overall, why I’m obsessed with this lipstick at the moment is for the gorgeous shade and amazing longevity.
The next product is also from Revlon. It’s the Revlon Color Stay Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in the shade Honey. This is a chubby crayon pencil lip product that’s a lip weight stain and moisturizing balm. I’ve been really enjoying this product and the natural look that it gives. I think that this product is great for the summer. It is really moisturizing and adds a really pretty, natural hue of pink to your lips. Its also really easy to apply, so it’s great to keep with you in your purse and reapply throughout the day, or when you feel like you need a color on your lips.
Lastly we have the Colourpop Lippie Stix and Lippie Pencil in the shade Bound. This is a light nude pink in a glossy finish. I love how Colourpop has matching lip pencils for every lippie stix, and the pencil is a different shade that’s meant to pair nicely with the lipstick. The lip pencil is a beautiful dark,nude, mauvey pink. I have been also loving wearing the lip pencil on its own. The lip pencil gives a matte finish, and looks like the classic 90’s shade that’s been very popular lately. Alone, the lippie stix is a very glossy pink, which is beautiful, but paired with the lip pencil it’s gorgeous. The formulation is very moisturizing and creamy, as well as long wearing, which is why I’ve been obsessed with these two products lately.
That’s all of the drugstore lip products that I’ve been loving lately. I hope you enjoyed my post and as always feel free to comment!
