Lip Product Addict Tag


A tag all about lip products has my name ALL over it. I tagged myself to do this because this is my blog and Iโ€™ll post what I want to, haha!


1. Favourite balm/treatment?

Burtโ€™s Bees all the way! I love that it is super minty, hydrating without being too slick and wears really well underneath lipstick.

2. Best eye-catching red?

You probably know my answer alreadyโ€ฆ MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick paired with MAC Cherry Lip Pencil!

3. Best luxury & best drugstore?

Luxury: I will have to go with the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet formula. I recently picked up the shade La Malicieuse which Iโ€™m pretty sure will be my go-to summer lip colour.

Drugstore: This one is a toughie since there are so many different products to choose from. However, I think will have to go with the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams for the wide colour selection and comfortable matte texture. A recent favourite is the colour Amsterdam.

4. Best MAC lipstick?

ย Do I have to choose just one?! MAC Relentlessly Red would probably be my number one.

5. The most disappointing?

Iโ€™ve gone through my fair share of lip products and most with good luck. However, the NYX Round Lipsticks are probably some of the worst that I have tried. They are way too creamy and slip and slide all over the lips.

6. Liner – yes or no?

YES! I am a huge advocate for lip liner because I love a really defined lip. Try using it to clean up the edges AFTER applying lipstick, it makes a world of a difference!

7. Best gloss?

Luxury: I am partial to Dior Addict Gloss for its wide colour range, comfortable wear and texture (just tacky enough to last on the lips without being annoying). I have them in the shade Spring Ball and Fairy Pink.

Drugstore: As someone who very rarely wears glossy lips anymore, drugstore lipglosses do the trick for when I do want to try something new. The Revlon Colourburst Lipgloss line are some of my long time favourites because of their wonderful pigmentation and non-sticky wear. These two shades, Rosegold and Papaya, are great to layer on top of other lip colours for the summer.

8. Something extra!

Can I just share my current obsession? I have been a fan of long wear matte lipsticks for ages, the likes of Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipsticks, Hourglass Opaque Rouges, MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Rouges and etc. I recently discovered Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick after finding them majorly discounted at Urban Outfitters for a whooping $10 (as compared to the retail price of $29). Although the formula is comparable to many other liquid lipstick formulas out there, the fact that I was able to pick up a couple of different colours all in one go for such a steal of a price was revolutionary. My liquid lipstick โ€œwardrobeโ€ is finally somewhat complete with, fortunately, a formula as lovely as Stilaโ€™s! The one featured here is in the shade Fiery, a nice deep but not too dark red.


    1. The Nuxe Reve De Miel Lipbalm is great for night time wear but I just don’t find it as versatile as Burt’s Bees. It is still a great product though. As for Chanel and MAC Ruby Woo, I totally agree, as you can see in the post, haha!


  1. Ok, so I’m gonna need to start investing in some liners when I’m back… will need your expertise on a (mini) shopping spree x
