Current Favourite Lip Products



Spoiler; I bloody love a nude lip.

Hey guys,

So this is kind of the second in a series of posts all about my favourite beauty bits (I've also written a Skincare Favourites), and this one is all about my favourite lip products! They range from Charlotte Tilbury, Gerard Cosmetics, NYX and Candescent* lip products, and there is a recurring them of a nude lip, but they're all different shades, I swear!

Firstly, we have the BEAUTIFUL Bitch Perfect from Charlotte Tilbury. This is the perfect pinky nude, that I feel would suit any skin tone. I was recommended this by Lucy from Just Lucy's Life (if you haven't already checked out her blog, then you definitely need to!) and fell in love with it.




As well as the packaging being absolutely stunning (Charlotte Tilbury's products are literally goals), the lipstick is super creamy and pigmented, and glides on so effortlessly. It's also really moisturising, as it is from her K.I.S.S.I.N.G range. This is definitely my go-to for a subtle, nude lip.

Next, there is the NYX Lip Lingeries, which are in the shades Bedtime Flirt and Lace Detail. If you have watched my latest video, which is a Beauty Haul and First Impressions, (cheeky promo there), then you will know that I actually disliked these when I originally tried them.





With liquid lipsticks, I feel that the formula can be very hit and miss, as some can be quite cakey or drying. At first, I found these to be exactly that, and they didn't seem to settle well onto my lips. However, on the next try, they glided on so well, and weren't cakey at all. I don't know if my lips were especially dry that day or if they just didn't react well, but something changed! I'd advise putting on a moisturising lip balm before using these however, but I would say that with all matte lipsticks, as they can be quite drying.

I had actually wanted to try these lipsticks for a while, but just could never find the shades that I wanted, so ordered them from ASOS a couple of weeks ago. I was a tad apprehensive, as the shades looked significantly lighter online, so I bought two that seemed to be not too light, but light enough. However, when they arrived, they were a lot darker then I anticipated, so I was quite confused (as you can imagine, it doesn't take a lot). However, when I swatched them, Lace Detail was perfect for my skin tone, and was such a pretty light pink nude. I haven't worn Bedtime Flirt as much, as it is a tad darker, but it is still really pretty.




Next up is the Hydra Matte Lipstick in the shade Skinny Dip from Gerard Cosmetics. This is not something that I would normally go for, as it is a mauvey-purple colour, and is a much darker shade than I would normally wear. However, Beauty Bay were having a sale (who can resist that??), so I think this was reduced to about £8. I was very excited to try it, and when it arrived (and I swatched it, because I am a stereotypical blogger), I fell in love. It is much darker than I would normally go for, but it is a shade that I have never tried before. Due to being very, very pale, I have to be careful with brown toned lipsticks, as they can sometimes wash me out to the point where I look ill. Therefore, I stick to what I know, by normally sporting a pink/nude/coral lip. As you can see by the swatches, it is very pretty, and if I'm feeling daring, my go-to for a darker lip.




Last, but definitely not least, we have the Candescent Lip Balms*, in Cherry, Bubblegum and an Unscented one. I was very kindly sent these by the lovely people over at Candescent, and I literally can't go a day without using these! The formula is so moisturising, and they are definitely a life-saver during this time of year. Plus, the Bubblegum lip balm smells soooo nice, it reminds me of when I was younger and was never without Hubba Bubba. (throwback to childhood). However, I do find the chapstick packaging to be much more practical, as it's a lot easier to put on the lips instead of trying to get product from the tin. But, apart from that, these are my holy grail for when my lips need a little TLC.




So there you have it, my current favourite lips products! I hope that you enjoyed, and I hope to see you all again soon!

What are you current favourite lip products?

Much love,

Grace x

  12. I'm obsessed with your photographs, they look so clean and fresh. I'm a massive fan of NYX lingerie however do I find they dry my lips out like crazy over the course of the day but they're so long lasting so it's worth putting up with dry lips for the staying power!

  22. I LOVE this Charlotte Tilbury lipstick, it's formula is so perfect I honestly can't fault it!

    Aside from that I've only tried one other and that would be Gerard Cosmetics. I have mixed feelings on this, I like it but there is literally little to no product in there. I've googled and research multiple times and I can't find anywhere the amount of formula given, probly because it really is little to none!
    I used it twice and it was half empty.

    Anyway, rant over. Loved this post!
