It is day 5 of our Ultimate Guide to Valentine’s Day! I thought it would be the perfect time to fill you all in on some of my favorite lip products that are perfect for the red and pink holiday!!
The first one is for my gloss lovers! It is the NARS Lip Gloss in the color Priscilla. Retailing at $26. It can be worn on its own..or topped onto another lip product. It is described as a “shocking pink” and that it is! Super barbie like! 😀 It is a tad bit sheer but, that is to be expected with an actual lip gloss.
My next favorite is from the Too Faced Melted line, in the color Melted Peony. Retailing at $21. These long-wearing, liquid lipsticks are amazing!! They are super creamy and go on really smooth. Melted Peony is described as a “dusty rose” or what I like to call “muted pink”. The pigmentation of all the Melted colors are really good and I definitely recommend them.
Third is Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick in the color Seductress. Retailing at $17.00. This is a traditional lipstick and is described as a “rose” color. It has a satin finish and is also highly pigmented. I own five lipsticks from this line and love every single one of them. Seductress is a super wearable color for anyone!
The fourth lip product that I would recommend is the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in the color Cruella. Retailing at $26. This is one of the products Sephora gave out as a birthday gift for their Beauty Insiders last year. I have completely fallen in love with this color and formula! Out of all these products, this is probably the least transferable one in the bunch. Meaning when you drink, eat, or kiss on Valentine’s day it won’t get all over the place. It is described as a “scarlet red” and is the deepest color I have in this post.
My last favorite is the least expensive and has been mentioned on my blog before. It is the NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in the color Kitten Heels. Retailing at $6.99. Not only is this color great for Christmas time..it is also the perfect bright red lip for Valentine’s day!! The brush reminds me a lot of the Colourpop Ultra Matte lipsticks applicator, making it really easy to apply. It is also highly pigmented and gives really good color pay off. The stock photo below does the color NO justice…thankfully I swatched everything down below!
From Bottom to Top: NARS lip gloss Priscilla, Too Faced Melted Peony, Lorac Alter Ego Seductress, NARS Velvet Matte Pencil Cruella, and NYX Liquid Sued Kitten Heels.
