Tomorrow it’s Valentine’s Day. That means many things to different things to different people. But regardless of your plans, you’re going to need something special on your lips. I went through my stash, and picked some favourites. Whether you’ve got a night on the town planned, or hanging out with the girls, these picks are sure to get your lips ready to celebrate v-day.
(L-R, Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Strawberry Kiss, Flower Beauty Shine On Lip Gloss Wand in Hibis-kiss, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Sultry Samba, Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch)
Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Strawberry Kiss. The perfect lip product with all-day staying power. Seriously. This stuff does not budge. It’s a beautiful bright matte pinky-red that will make your lips the star of the show. I wore this to a party last week and after hours of eating, drinking punch and laughing harder than I have in a while (watching people stuff wontons into their mouths will do that), it was still as bright and even as it was when I applied it hours earlier.
Flower Beauty Shine On Lip Gloss Wand in Hibis-kiss. The prettiest lipgloss I currently own. You can wear this either quite opaque or sheered out. I layered this on top of a pink-nude shade earlier this week, and it worked really well for a more subtle look. The best part about this though (besides the gorgeous packaging) is the applicator. It is the softest gloss applicator ever. Seriously. It’s like a spa for your lips.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Sultry Samba. I fell in love with when I first bought it, and every time I wear it, I just fall deeper and deeper. A really beautiful hot pink (that can be sheered out if you put some lip balm on right before). The matte finish makes it easier to wear. Perfect for the finishing touch, especially with a simple eye look.
Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch. Not a lipstick gal? Try this. You get a hint of colour, but is the easiest to apply. No mirror needed. Oh, and bonus? You can pick this one up for less than $5.00.
