Back with a goodie, if you are like me and can not leave the house with some form of lip product on, you know that your bag is probably stashing about 10 lip items. Mine actually wasn't that bad this time but I still had 7 not to mention the ones I still have in my other bags, coat pockets and at work. These are my recent most reached for lip products, hope you have some faves too.

Starting with Colourpop, I am still a huge Colourpop fan so it comes as no surprise that there are 5 in here. First up we have the Ultra Glossy Lips in Weho and Lychee Me. Weho was my first UGL and hands down this is still my favourite, it saddens me that is discontinued now, so let's hope they bring it back. Weho is a beautiful beige crème finish glossy lip, so it still gives you a little wash of colour. It is perfect for any nude lip that you apply and melts together beautifully. Lychee Me is another nude beige crème, which is just a tad lighter in shade compared to Weho, I just looked on the website and it's also been discontinued too ( my crying face ). I reach for these almost daily as lipstick topper especially when my lips need a little hydration from all my other matte lipsticks.

I have the Ultra Blotted Lip in Zuma, which was launched last summer, it acts more of a tint and is a buildable formula. The finish of this is actually matte and it does not transfer at all which is amazing.  I wore a little MAC Chili underneath once and applied the UBL on top and it looked incredible here. Or normal day to day wear it looks a bit pastel on me here. It is described as an everyday nude but because of my skin tone it's more on the pink side, they have 10 shades altogether and I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another.

The Ultra Satin Lip which is their most popular formula, I had the shade 951 in my bag, this is a collab with Iluvsarahii. It is described as a warm nude but I find that it is a little bit brown on me. I absolutely love the colour so I am not complaining, I wore it here and it looks so beautiful topped off with a gloss. Their USL is very comfortable to wear they look matte but does not feel matte. I have amasses quite a collection and this is one of the favourites that I keep in my bag.


Another Colourpop item I have but is more of a lip pencil/stick hybrid is the Aquarius Lippie Stix, this is from the initial Kathleen Light collab and is the second one that I have picked up. It has a crème finish so it is a pigmented satin formula which does not leave your lips dry. This is a beautiful light nude pink shade and is the lightest that I will ever go. It smells incredible (pineapple and vanilla) and is just so easy to use, again it melts into your lips beautifully. See photos here and here.

A lipstick that I have is the Mac Velvet Teddy, an all-time favourite of mine. It is one of those colours that look different for everyone and it looks a like a nude pink on me here. It is a matte finish and I really like the formula, it is comfortable to wear every day and does not transfer unless you eat. I have a few Mac Lipsticks but this is the go to.

Lastly, I have the Make Up Revolution Renaissance Lipstick in Vow. It basically looks like the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks but more affordable/ high street version. This colour packs a punch, it is a matte finish and is incredibly pigmented. I would say the finish can be a little drying and sometimes it does tug on my lips but if I want a nude look this is acceptable for me to wear as it has a brown/peach undertone, it smells like coconuts but sometimes it gives off that chemical smell. The scent does not linger, so it does not bother me that much and it gives me that pouty full lip colour that I achieved with the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Pencils. All in all, this is a thumbs up for me and I always drop my lipsticks so I wouldn't be heartbroken if I drop this.

  18. My favorite color is Golden Brandy by Clinique but it isn't my favorite formula.
    You wear a lot of the lipstick colors that I do.

  19. I’ve always thought that a make-up look isn’t complete without lipstick, but unfortunately due to my dry lips and the habit to vigorously scrub my mouth after eating/drinking anything they aren’t really my go-tos :( My favourite lip product though currently, is Barry M’s tinted lip balm in the colour “Current Bun”. It smells super tasty and gives a not-over-the-top purple tint that I can wear with confidence :))

  20. I need to try out colourpop lychee! It looks gorgeous! Personally, my go-to lipstick is Urban decay 1993! I love the brownish nudes!

  21. Amazing giveaway. Such a shame that I missed out on it.
