The Lip Product Addict || TAG

The Lip Product Addict
If there was ever a tag made with me in mind, then this would be it. I have a slight addiction to lip products so  when I watched the Essie Button and Amelia Liana video version I knew I had to do it. One night on twitter, myself and the beautiful Aimee (aimeelovesx) decided we'd do the video tag in a post form so here goes...

1) Favourite balm or treatment
For this, I've chosen both a balm and a treatment because I love them both equally. For my treatment I have the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub. This is the perfect exfoliator for dry lips, plus it tastes amazing. I used to these every day but since my lips are in much better condition now I aim for twice a week. My treatment has to be the EOS Lipbalm in Strawberry. I reviewed this here so you can check out my more in depth thoughts, but basically it's brilliant.   

2) Best eye catching red
This was a super easy one for me, it has to be Mac's Russian Red. The colour just suits my pale skin perfectly. I also love the blue undertones because they make my teeth look much whiter and the matte finish means it stays in place all day. It isn't drying on the lips either but the colour pay off and longevity really is amazing.

3) Best Luxury and Best Drugstore
So for luxury I went for the YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain Lip Stain (reviewed here). I have so much love for this lipstick, it's the perfect amount of glossiness and colour and the longevity rivals anything else I own. I love how the glossiness stays on even after a full dinner (including drinks). Ps the packaging is b-e-a-u-tiful too! For drugstore I have to pick the Revlon Matte and Lacquer Colourburst balms. These are my go to lipsticks for every day wear. I love both the matte finish and the lacquer finishes and the colour range is amazing. My two favourites are Elusive and Demure.

4) Best MAC lipstick
Without a doubt Rebel, I love how diverse this is. It's my go to colour in the Autumn and Winter but it's also wearable in the warmer months with some light application and some blotting. The finish and feel of it on the lips is lovely too, again it isn't drying and gives just the right amount of hydration that makes it last.

5) Most disappointing product
This is a hard one and the product I've picked isn't exactly disappointing, it's just not what I was expecting. I went for Illamasqua's Immodest lipstick. The colour is absolutely beautiful, it's a shocking, bright, Barbie pink (the picture doesn't do it justice) but it's just so so drying. It literally clings to every dry part of your lip, you need some seriously good exfoliation to wear this.

6) Liner - yes or no?
Quick and simple - if i'm wearing a bold lip, yes. If not then no.

7) Best gloss
I've gone for two drugstore lipglosses simply because I don't own any high end ones except for one. I have too much love for Revlon Lipgloss in Adorned (reviewed here) the shade is just gorgeous. I've also really been enjoying the Maybelline Coloursensational High-Shine Lipgloss these are really natural looking but add a little hint of colour too. I love that they aren't sticky, which means they are perfect for work.

8) Something extra
For my something extra I thought i'd give a little nod to liquid lipsticks - 2 in particular. I'm way late on the band wagon with the Rimmel Apocolips but they really are fantastic products. Big Bang is a beautiful, vibrant red which lasts all night. I love the formula of these, they have a matte finish but are really hydrating and moisturising. Finally, my newest lip product is the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in the shade Pink Pong. You've probably heard so much about these so i'll keep it short, basically the colour range is amazingly bright and the colour pay off is ridiculous. They last for so long and they are super pigmented that you're good to go in one coat!

I tag you all to do this :)!
