Lips I'm Loving... Vol. 2

I was having a root through my makeup bag this morning and thought I'd share my current faourite lips products with you all! Evidently I'm loving a good pale pink lip at the moment and these are the shades currently lurking in my makeup bag...


Clockwise from top left: Besame 'Cotton Candy' Lipgloss, YSL Rouge Volupte in 'Forbidden Burgundy' , Shiseido Shimmering Rouge 311, Smashbox Smile Brightening Lipgloss, Avon Ultra Colour Rich Mega Impact Lipstick in 'Never So Nude', Nuxe 'Reve de Miel' Lipbalm

From top:

1. Shiseido Shimmering Rouge in 311 - This is my new favourite fail safe everyday lipstick... the perfect shade of pale pink (not pale enough to make you look ill!) with a creamy formula and non-gloss finish. I love the packaging too!

2. YSL Rouge Volupte in 12/Forbidden Burgundy - My only rouge volupte, this colour is my 'dare to wear' shade: a gorgeous vampy burgundy. I love the formulation and scent of the Rouge Volupte line... I've got my eyes on Sensual Silk next!



3. Smashbox Smile Brightening Lipgloss - I got this in a duo for breast cancer care last year and I'm not sure if it even has a shade name, but it's probably my most worn lipgloss overall this year. A gorgeous sparkly lilac that catches the light.


4. Besame 'Cotton Candy' Lipgloss - The newest addition to my makeup bag. The colour of this lipgloss is nothing unique. Its a very standard baby pink BUT it tastes like coconut. My all time favourite flavour for lips and... it's super creamy and moisturising.


5. Avon Ultra Colour Rich Mega Impact Lipstick in 'Never So Nude' - The perfect 'your lips but better' shade with a super flattering, glossy finish. Perfect for slapping on without a mirror if you need to. I love the multi-faceted shape of the bullet too - Avon's lipsticks are great quality for their price.


That's all folks! What are your current favourite lip products?
