Hey friends! My name is Jessy and I am so excited to be guest blogging today on The Nook Girls! A big thanks to Rachel and Allison for inviting me over today! I am a lifestlye blogger (CurrentBliss.com), travel lover, coffee addict, Christ follower, and blessed wife! My blog, Current Bliss, is a place where I share a little look into my life and talk about my love for all things fashion and beauty.
The girls asked if I would be willing to chat about makeup today and that is something that is right. up. my. alley! It’s really tough to narrow down, but I would have to say that my favorite makeup item in general are lip products. A little mascara and a fab lip color can do wonders!
Today I want to share with you my favorite lip products. And by favorite I mean that if you were to open up my purse, you would most likely find these lippies inside. These lip products are constantly on repeat and are the ones I can grab and go, and know I can rely on. (Bonus – they are all affordable!)
First, a lip liner that can be paired with lots of different lip colors is the Revlon ColorStay Lip Liner in Nude. It really is the perfect neutral shade. Lining your lips not only helps make applying other lip products easier, but it defines your lips, and in my opinion, pulls your whole makeup look together!
An all around perfect nude gloss that can be worn alone or on top of ANY lip color is ColourPop’s Ultra Glossy Lip in Fairy Floss. I love the finish of it and who doesn’t love a pretty lip gloss? And for the price you cannot go wrong! By the way, if you haven’t tried out any ColourPop lip products, you definitely should!
Looking for a great matte lip option? I was always worried about matte lip products looking horribly dry, but I really like the formula of e.l.f.’s Matte Lip Colors! There are tons of shades to choose from as well! My all time favorite shade is Tea Rose. It is a cool-toned pink and it permanently lives in my purse!
If matte lips aren’t for you, I have the perfect solution. My favorite combo is first applying e.l.f.’s Tea Rose Matte Lip Color and topping it off with NYX’s Butter Gloss in Eclair. It is a match made in heaven! These glosses are a fave because the formula is SO smooth and the color payoff is gorgeous. They can be worn alone or popped on top of other lip colors. It is definitely worth picking one (or two) up!
For my final lip product, I have to talk about a lipstick that I officially am down to the bottom of and had to repurchase. That doesn’t happen often for me, so you know it must be good! It is e.l.f.’s Beautifully Bare Satin Lipstick. The formula – amazing! The colors – gorgeous! And the price – unbeatable. The color I ran to Target to repurchase is the color Touch of Nude.
Although it’s hard to narrow down my all-time favorite lip products, these are honestly the ones that are always found with me in my purse. They are all pretty neutral but that’s why they are my go-to’s – they can be worn and paired with anything! Make sure to check out some of the products and maybe you will find a new favorite or two! Thanks again to Rachel & Allison, and I hope you’ll hop over and say hi to me on my blog sometime! xo.
