Today I wanted to share some of my current, favorite lip colors that would be perfect for this upcoming New Year’s Eve festivities (& even after that). I have to be honest and say that I really don’t do much experimenting with new or bold lip colors, but every once in a while it is fun to rock a bright red lip : ) I also don’t judge my lip products based on just color, but also on how long they last, and how they feel on my lips. My lips are actually pretty sensitive and peel a lot. I know it’s best to exfoliate your lips before you apply any lip product, but I haven’t discovered a good lip exfoliated yet. Therefore, if you have a great lip exfoliater that you swear by, please share!

I do like these products for different reasons. A lip pen, rather than a lipstick will always be more functional for me for it’s easy application. I also always love a cream lip product over a lipstick just because it is easy to apply for me. Out of the liquid lipsticks that I have, the wand I like the most is by Mac. The Mac product is also extremely long lasting and doesn’t make my lips peel. Another product that I love and will be re-purchasing is the Benefit Cosmetics Double the Lip Lipstick & Liner in One in the shade Nude Scandal. I didn’t do a shade swatch of this because I have had it for a few months now and use it very frequently. Therefore it is now extremely fragile and I didn’t want it to break! But it truly is my favorite and I definitely want to try it in more shades. Another product that I love and did not shade swatch is the Bobbi Brown’s Extra Lip Tint. This is more like a chapstick and is colorless, yet it enhances your natural lip color. It is amazing and I highly recommend it!
That’s all for today! As always, let me know if you have any questions. Have a great day : )
