Fall Lip Obsessions

Ever since I did a post over the summer about my Lip Essentials, I have been trying out tons of new lip products. It’s now my favorite beauty product to purchase since it can be worn on minimal-makeup days or it can help pull an entire look together. I love to experiment with lips and no tutorials are needed! I still use many of the products discussed on my Lip Essentials post, such as the Sara Happ Lip Scrub, Bite Beauty Matte Lip Crayon, and Vaseline Lip Therapy, but I want to highlight some of my new favorites that I have been wearing again and again this fall!

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask – Since the weather is getting cooler and dryer, I have been looking for moisturizing lip products. This lip mask is a soothing, leave-on lip mask that replenishes moisture in lips. Some key ingredients are organic agave nectar, jojoba oil, vanilla CO2 extract, and antioxidant trans-resveratrol. I only use this at night because it is glossy and sticky so I cannot easily apply lipstick over it. When I wake up in the morning, my lips look super moist and healthy! The one thing I don’t like about this is the packaging because I have to squeeze really hard to get the product out. Other than that, I would highly recommend this product!!

Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon Niagara Overlook – I purchased this from Target a couple weeks ago and it has become one of my most reached for products. This is a beautiful rosy pink, moisturizing, easy-to-apply lip crayon. It is not super pigmented, but gives you just the right amount of color. It is 100% natural made with shea butter, kendi oil and jojoba oil.

LOC Vibrant Matte Lip Crayon First Kiss – One of my favorite YouTubers is Tati Westbrook and when I watched her video about the launch of this new line for Birchbox, I got super teary eyed during the video and couldn’t wait to purchase her lip crayon in the shade First Kiss. This is a light pink/nude shade that is perfect for a minimal makeup or no makeup look. It blends in with my face yet it still makes me look polished. It feels very buttery and smooth, and it is easy to re-apply throughout the day.

MAC Amplified Lipstick Cosmo – Holy moly is this lipstick pigmented and high quality! I only need to apply it once and the color stays the whole day. It is very similar to the YSL Rouge Volupte in shade 23 (another favorite!), but way less glossy. The amplified version is a cream finish, which is perfect because it has just the right amount of shine and guides right on.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Lovesick – I have been hearing about these lipsticks for a while, but held off on the purchase until recently because the shades I want are always out of stock. Seriously half the shades have been out of stock on Sephora for months! I finally decided to purchase this shade in Lovesick (now out of stock!), which is a beautiful mauve purple. This is a long wearing matte lipstick and the color stays on all day (even after eating and drinking). I love the formulation and I would recommend you purchase any shade!

Josie Maran Argan Infinity Lip and Cheek Creamy Oil Boundless Berry – I am a big fan of Josie Maran because of the 100% pure argan oil and has been slowly trying out her other products. This product is a tinted lip treatment that starts as a cream and melts into an oil texture. The color is intensifying and rich–a little goes a long way! I usually just dab a little bit on my finger and tap it across my lips. One thing I don’t like about this is the application. I wouldn’t recommend applying it on your lips directly–you’ll have to squeeze products on your finger but that can get messy too. This product works on the cheeks as well, but boundless berry isn’t the best shade for the cheeks. It is way too red and pigmented, even if I only apply a couple of taps and spread the products. If it is too red on my cheeks for my skin tone, it’ll be too red for anyone with a lighter skin tone. It is a wonderful lip product though!
