Over recent years, I have obtained an abundant love for lip products other than that of my obvious love for lipstick. The above lip products are always in my handbag, and if not, I feel a major sense of despair. I hate being unprepared for occasions, and when the occasion arises I like to think a good lip colour will do the trick.
I carry three MAC lipsticks in my handbag, a nude and two types of reds. A red lipstick is perfect for those spontaneous evening dinner dates after work. A nude, in case I’m wearing a very loud outfit but still want my lips to be on point.
My day time routine when I’m not already wearing lipstick is to ensure my lips are kept moisturized at all times. As I am an avid Matte lipstick fanatic, I suffer from dry lips, and with winter creeping in the odds are against me, which is why I use Maybelline’s Baby Lips in Cherry Me and Peach Kiss for a natural look that keeps my lips chapstick ready. You can find these at any Clicks, or Pick & Pay stores.
I use my NYX soft matte lip cream when I want those non-fuss days and to add a burst of colour to my lips. The beauty of this product is the long wear I get as well as the fact that no food will interrupt or ruin my lips time to shine. I especially opt for this product when I want a soft, smooth and lightweight lip coverage. These can be found at Clicks.
