Janelle In Real Life: Absolute Favorite Lip Products


Absolute Favorite Lip Products

It's been a hot minute since I've done a beauty post on here, but I've still been testing products and finding my faves for you babes!

So today I'm presenting you with: My Absolute Favorite Lip Products! 
These are my ride or die products that I've been using over & over the past several months.

I'll briefly give my 'why' for each of these, going from left to right!

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Penelope Pink: First up is my favorite of the bunch (and the most expensive... booooo). This lipstick is the all time PERFECT shade of nude/pink. This is the shade I'm wearing in almost every photo you see of me because I can't quit it! The formula is also super creamy and hydrating, but has solid staying power. It's amazing and honestly worth the steep price tag.

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Rome (I also love the shade Abu Dhabi): In my opinion, Nyx gives you the best bang for your buck when it comes to Matte liquid lipstick. I've tried the full price range of matte liquid lipsticks (from $5 Elf to $37 Chanel) and I always end up loving Nyx best for the price! They have a gorgeous shade range and they stay pretty well!

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb: This is the BEST LIPGLOSS. Not even joking around, I'm so obsessed with this. The shade is supposed to be universal, great for all skin tones! All I can speak to is my personal experience, but it's the perfect nude/pink gloss for everyday wear. I'm so glad I picked this up a few months ago because I now wear it probably 5 days out of the week. So good!

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask: This is one of those amazing Korean beauty products and I have loved it so much! I started buying it back when you could only get it on Amazon in the US, but now it's available at Sephora as well. This product is used for hydrating your lips and is meant to be put on before bed at night. I use it then, but I also use it as a lip "primer"! I put it on when I'm starting my makeup, and when I put my lipstick on 10-15 minutes later, they are soft & lipstick application is so perfect. If you're having issues with dry lips or your lipstick not applying well, I highly recommend giving this a try!

Maybelline Vivid Hot Lacquer Lipgloss in Unreal: This is such a pretty nude gloss! It's more on the brown nude side which I LOVE. It used to be my everyday color before picking up the Gloss Bomb, but I still wear it a lot and the price is definitely better!

Mac Lipstick in Faux: This mac lipstick is such a perfect pink. It's more on the 'cool' side rather than the coral or brown pinks I normally go for, but it's become a staple color for me! The finish is satin which is nice & hydrating, and you honestly can't go wrong with the quality of Mac lipsticks in any shade. I LOVE filling in my lips with a mac lip pencil in the  shade 'whirl' and then going over the top of it with 'faux'. It creates the perfect color combo for me! It looks great alone as well, but I love the versatility of being able to tweak the shade to what I want.

And that's it! I realize most of these are nudes or pinks, but that's my go-to shade so I know my way around lip products in this color range!
