Holy Grail: Lip Product Edition

l-r Revlon Lip Butter Strawberry Shortcake, Maybelline ColorSensational Electric Orange, Lime Crime Velvetines Suedeberry, Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector 04

This is the second tube of this lipstick I have now purchased and making my way through. In all honestly, I could have included many more Lip Butters, as they are so easy to apply, and all colours are gorgeous! This one is my favourite though as I love the Barbie pink colour it gives my lips. Who doesn't love a Barbie pink! It applies like a dream, I don't really need to use a mirror for this, which makes for a perfect handbag lipstick. The formula to the Lip Butters are so smooth and conditioning, I can't say anything bad about them!

I was a bit wary when buying this orange lipstick how well it would be received by my boyfriend! But when I applied it, I thought 'pah' I love it, and I don't care if no one else does! The colour is bright enough to be a bit out of my comfort zone, but subtle enough for me to really enjoy wearing it. The swatch on my hand doesn't do it justice, so maybe I will do a separate post with it swatched on my lips. Staying power on my lips is so good! I lasted a whole night out, drinking and talking and applied it just once, which for me is good going!

I don't think there is much to say about this product about how much I love this thing! I did a review on this product a little while ago, and I gushed over it enough in the post! I cannot wait for my Red Velvet to come in the post. I just love this product. It stays on like a dream. It just doesn't budge! I love the feel of it on my lips whilst I'm applying it and after its on my lips. Its just an amazing product. If you don't have it yet, I say purchase it. You won't be disappointed!

I have been looking for a light gloss, a kind of 'my lips but better' for a while now, and after reading a lot of reviews on this range from Clarins, I thought this would be the one! I went into John Lewis one day and they were having a price match, so I thought it was fate, it was meant to be! It was between 04 and another one, which I think was more peachy toned, but I love my pinks, so I settled on this one. I have probably worn it every day since I purchased it, it's such an easy colour to wear for work, and the longevity isn't too bad for a light gloss. Its not too sticky, but I can't say I really mind sticky glosses! I love this gloss and I hope it stays around for a while!

I hope you all enjoyed reading my Holy Grail: Lip Products Edition! I am enjoying writing these, and I think if anyone is in a bit of a writing slump, these are the best way to get out of it, and back into blogging! Thank you for reading!
