The Lip Product Addict Tag

This tag, created by Amelia and Estée, is one of the few tags that actually translates well into a blog post. Some tags just do not work well with words! Compared to others I wouldn't call myself a lip product addict, you should see my nail polish collection instead, but I do like a good nude lipstick, moisturising lip balm or unsticky gloss just as much as the next beauty blogger does.

1. Favourite balm/treatment? Pre trying Dior's Creme De Rose I would have said By Terry Baume De Rose was my favourite lip balm. I don't know what it is about Dior's offering, the two are practically the same, but it's the one I reach for more often and it's a little bit less expensive. Still expensive for a lip balm but isn't £38. Rumour on the grapevine is that this has now been discontinued, I really hope it hasn't!!

2. Best eye-catching red? I'm not a huge fan of red lipsticks, instead prefer a nude or pink, out of the two I do own Mac's Viva Glam Cyndi is my favourite. With my pale skin it's actually quite a bright red with a hint of pink/raspberry.
3. Best luxury & best drugstore? I don't own too many high end lip products but my favourite have to Mac lipsticks, especially the creme sheen formula. They're moisturising as I usually have dry lips and there are endless colours to choose from. Best drugstore, and it's a new discovery, have to be the Maybelline Coloursensational Shine Glosses. I have a nude offering and a red offering, both are incredibly pigmented and aren't sticky. They really are similar to the Clarins Instant Lip Perfectors.
4. Best MAC lipstick? Without a doubt it's creme cup! This is probably my most used lipstick of all time with Seventeens Beehive coming a close second.

5. The most disappointing? I don't have too many disappointing products in my collection as I tend to get rid of them pretty quickly if I know I'm never going to use them. One of the disappointing lip products that I did keep though is the L'Oreal Glam Shine Stain Splash. Although it looks like a nice colour in the tube it didn't translate well onto the lips and I felt like I had to apply twenty layers for only a hint of colour.
6. Liner - yes or no? I have to say no. I only own two lip liners and I never use them!

7. Best gloss? I've never been a fan of lipgloss until I tried the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors. I have a peach shade and a pink shade and use them on an almost daily basis. They give a nice amount of colour and shine without being sticky and they almost feel moisturising on the lips. I love the packaging and the scent of them too.

8. Something extra! I couldn't write a lip product post without mentioning  the Fresh Sugar Lip Balms, especially the tinted versions. These pack a punch when it comes to colour, it looks like you're wearing a lip balm but they're incredibly moisturising. I just wish they were easier to get a hold of in the UK!
