Lip Lust List… say that five times fast! I was thinking about wish lists and how one of the unintended (and sometimes pricey) consequences of reading and following a lot of beauty bloggers and YouTubers is that I keep finding products I really want. I have a particular soft spot for lip products as even before I was into beauty blogging I really loved them and they are easy to wear and I’ve almost always got one of some sort in my pocket. But just because I have a ton and it’s incredibly difficult to finish any doesn’t mean I don’t want more. Hence the Lip Lust List was born.
Whenever I have a decent amount of lip products I’m really wanting to purchase I will share them with you in these posts and you can let me know if there are any you have (and love…or not!) and what lip products you’re lusting over so I can probably add them to my own ridiculous long list of things I want to buy.
Well that’s the background, here’s my first Lip Lust List.
Uh oh, looks like somebody figured out how to use Polyvore…
So here’s my top 6 Lip Lust List (in no particular order, I just wanted the collage to look pretty):
1. L’Oreal Paris Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Rose On and On
I keep reading about these YSL glossy stain dupes, but the clincher was reading a review on Miss Budget Beauty where she tested them out and found the L’Oreal Paris one worked better than the YSL (read here). I love that they are long-lasting and apparently not too drying, they actually give your lips a bit of a shine (I love shine!) Unfortunately I’m not super comfortable with really bright lips so that limits my choices but I am very in love with this rosy shade. If I ever seem them on sale at the drugstore, this is immediately going in my basket!
2. Maybelline Color Whisper in Pin Up Peach
I haven’t tried these out either, but I love my L’Oreal Colour Riche Balm and I also have a Revlon Lip Butter I enjoy a lot, so it seems natural to test out the Maybelline version next. I saw this shade in a video by Lesley (Petite Pear Style, view here) and I thought it was really lovely and natural.
3. MAC Sheen Supreme in Candy Apple
I recently learned about the MAC Sheen Supreme line in a Shopping Obsession post (read here) where she had bought two of them, including the limited edition shade Candy Apple. I love that they seem to be super moisturizing and this seems like a really pretty colour, vibrant but sheer enough to still be wearable for me. I haven’t tried any MAC lip products and I’m really interested in them (hence having 2 on this list!)
4. MAC Lustre Lipstick in Syrup
The second MAC lip product on my Lip Lust List I first saw when watching an EssieButton video on her top 5 MAC lipsticks and this one made the list! It’s in the lustre formulation which is again, more sheer and moisturizing, and looks really pretty from the swatches I’ve seen online. I’ll have to test it out in person, but I feel like it’s a great wearable option for my first MAC lipstick.
5. Soap & Glory Super-Colour Fabulipstick in Perfect Day
My wonderful friend Laala recently started a beauty blog at Intermittent Makeup, and one of the things she’s shared are some of her “In My Bag” photos from over the years (check them out here and say hi!), and this lipstick from Soap & Glory showed up in several bags so I had to Google it and check it out. I love it! Soap & Glory doesn’t sell makeup in Canada but next time I’m abroad, I am definitely going to be testing out some of their products, including Perfect Day!
6. Revlon Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon
I only own one Revlon Lip Butter (Pink Truffle) and while it’s a great shade, I find it a tad drying. That said, I saw this one in a Julia Goolia instagram photo and it just seemed so cheerful and lovely and I think I’d like to try out another colour anyway, so Wild Watermelon it is.
I had fun doing this post and one of the best parts was I got to link to some of my favourite blogs and YouTube channels to show where my Lip Lust List inspiration came from! Would you like to see this (or other lust lists) in the future on Writing Whimsy?
Do you love lip products as much as I do? Would you recommend picking up (or skipping over) any of the products on my list? What would make it onto your ‘lip lust list’ (and if you post one, please leave me a link! 🙂 )
