Lips of the week #2

I love lip products and recently have been mixing up the lip products I have been using a lot! They are easy to love too...they are usually foolproof, quick and simple to wear, can transform your look and in most cases it is hard to find a bad one.

The first lip product I have been reaching for a lot in the past couple of weeks is the lipstick in 'Hush' by omSHE. Not only does this lipstick smell divine and come in a beautiful gold tube (I'm a sucker for pretty packaging) but it is the most gorgeous natural pinky nude. Definitely more pink than nude, which is exactly what I like! If you haven't tried the omSHE brand before I highly recommend you do, they have lovely lipsticks and a good range of nail polishes that are 3-free.

Next up, an old product that I dug out from my stash - the Covergirl lip perfection jumbo gloss balm in '275'. This was my go-to lip product last year but I hadn't worn it in a while and I honestly do not know why. A MLBB shade that is perfect for this time of year. For a product that labels itself a gloss balm, this gives good pigmentation, has a nice creamy formula and decent lasting power.

Another old favourite of mine, the Nyx Butter Gloss in 'Creme Brulee', has been the lip product I reach for when I don't really know what to put on my lips. It gives my lips a milky pink tinge, moisturises them like crazy and smells like cupcakes...yummy!

It's winter so I have been stacking on the lip balms! A recent purchase of mine, the Lanolips 'Lemonaid Lip Aid with Lemon Oil', has won a place in my heart. It smells like lemonade, feels really smooth, lightweight and kind of liquid-y. When the Maybelline Baby Lips first launched I didn't get the hype but all this time later I have finally been converted. The 'Mango Pie' Maybelline Baby Lips has been kicking around my desk, handbag, pocket...pretty much everywhere all the time. It actually is a really good lip balm. Not exactly breaking news is it?! And finally, after a lot of debating I picked up the Nuxe Reve de Niel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm. I have read a billion amazing reviews on this lip balm and despite it coming in a pot (ew germs!) it seriously is amazing. I put this on my lips before going to sleep and it is still on my lips after eating breakfast. Impressive stuff! I'll write up a full review of this soon.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!!! :)
