The Lip Product TAG.

Hello everyone. I know this is quite an old TAG but I have never done it before and thought that because I am getting more into lip products day by day, that I would do this TAG and see if any of you agreed with me on some of the products, so without further a do I shall get on with this TAG.

1. Favourite Balm or Treatment
You may or may not know that I suffer with dry, cracked lips and not just in winter but all year round therefore I find it very useful to have a lip balm all year round. I haven't tried many lip balms at the moment as I've been using the same one day in and day out but it has sadly come to an end as you may have seen in my June empties post which you can read here. My favourite lip balm at the moment is the Nivea essential care lip balm. It doesn't have a tint, it is just plain but it has Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter in it - so it is really hydrating and moisturising for my lips. It's available in all drugs stores and at a mere £1.55, it's such a bargain!
2. Best Eye-Catching Red
Okay so, I have to admit, I'm not really one to wear a red lip. I'm more of a neutrals girl both with lips and eyes. Although I do have a eye-catching red that I love and you can see it in the image above and it's MAC's Russian Red lipstick. It's not an in-your-face red but it is a darker red and I feel very sophisticated when I wear it. I tend to wear it for parties and I wore it on New Year and loved it. I find that I like to wear it when I have done a smoky eye because I'm not always feeling too daring. I'm sure there are drugstore alternatives that are a lot cheaper but I just love MAC lipsticks. I love the vanilla scent and the quality is lovely and if you're willing to pay £15.50, I'd highly recommend it.
3. Best Luxury & Best Drugstore Lip Product
The only Luxury lip product I own is from MAC. I have two lipsticks; Russian Red and Lovelorn. Out of the two I prefer Lovelorn and it's my go-to lipstick. The shade is gorgeous and the finish of it is just amazing. I would happily repurchase. It isn't the highest priced lipstick compared to some lip products but it's definitely a luxury product for me. Best drugstore lip product would probably be my Nivea essential care lip balm with Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil because it's affordable and it cares for your lips. I haven't quite found a drugstore lip product such as a lipstick that I really love yet as I tend to wear my MAC lipstick in Lovelorn but I am on the hunt; hence my choice being a lip balm.
4. Best MAC Lipstick
As I mentioned above, my favourite MAC lipstick is Lovelorn, it's such a wearable colour and looks great with any make up. I love the finish and it's just a gorgeous glossy finish without being overly glossy. A few months back I did a MAC lipstick collection here but since then I have downsized slightly. My collection wasn't big to start with but I thought I'd share it anyway.
5. Most Disappointing Lip Product
I have been let down by a few lip products in the past, sadly. However I think I'd have to say the Maybelline Baby Lips was the most disappointing. I gave into the hype - I never do that now. I was so disappointing, it literally did nothing for my lips. My lips didn't repair, they stayed cracked and dry and the product for me personally is overpriced.

6. Lip Liner - Yes or No?
I'm ashamed to say that I don't own one single lip liner. Sometimes I'll use my lipstick and get a brush and line my lips but I suppose it doesn't give the same effect. I'd never say no to a lip liner, so maybe it's time I bought some. If you have any recommendations, do let me know in the comments.
7. Favourite Gloss
I don't really own many lip glosses. I own two at the most because I'm really not a fan if I'm honest. I just find them too sticky and they just don't really do anything for me. If the Dior Lip Maximizer counts as a lip gloss than I hands down recommend this product. It works wonders. It plumps up my lips and when I've used this, everyone has commented and said how good my lips look. It is a pricey one at £23.50 but it's a luxury and I love it. However, if that doesn't count than I love my Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Smitten which I think has discontinued now.

So that's the lip product TAG, I really hope you've enjoyed reading this and let me know your recommendations!



  1. I love lip products so reading this was my cup of tea!

  2. My current favourite, lip products have to be the Sephora Creamy Lip Stains, as they're so bright and intensely pigmented, yet have a comfortable, matte formula which lasts all day/night! I've had my eye on the Dior Lip Maximizer for a while now, so it sounds like it's time for me to splurge!

  3. It's so beautiful and so creamy and not drying on the lips! I'd definitely give it a purchase! Do let me know if you purchase it xx

  4. I've heard so much about them! It's a shame shipping is so expensive and I'm not going anywhere with a Sephora any time soon! Yes, the Dior Lip Maximizer is so good! I'd definitely give it a go! x

  5. MAC's Russian Red is such a beautiful shade!

  6. Thanks for your link in the #bblogger chat,
    I love Russian red, and will definitely have to try lovelorn - need a new everyday shade!

  7. It really is! I absolutely love it! x

  8. No worries! Thank you for yours! I know it really is gorgeous! Lovelorn is definitely my favourite! A very everyday shade and is wearable with any eye look! Thanks for stopping by! x

  9. I'm pretty similar with lip liners and glosses. I'm into matte + nudes so neither are really necessary. Lip glosses are too sticky for me as well! I have MAC velvet teddy and I am obsessed with it. I can't wait to collect more MAC lipsticks.
