Drugstore Lips

by - January 17, 2016

Hey guys, today I am going to be sharing with you which lip products I think are the best from the drugstore. Hope you enjoy. xx

First, I am going to share with you a combo. When I was looking through my lip products I saw these 2 products next to each other and thought they would look perfect together. It is the Zoella Beauty Vanilla Cream balm from the Two Balmy Christmas Set and the Tanya Burr lipgloss in Cotton Cane from the Christmas Candy Cane set. The balm is a beautiful bright pink/coral and the gloss in a pinky toned shade. Together they made a really glossy pink colour which I think would look great in spring. I did have to re-apply this a couple of times though during the day as balms don't have the most long-lasting pigmentation. Unfortunately, neither of these products are sold any more but if I can I will link some similar products at the end.

The next product is also a balm and it is the Maybelline Baby Lips. I have 2 shades - Pink Shock (electro range) and Pink Punch (original range). Pink shock isn't as bright/pigmented as I would have liked it to be but it is still a really nice shade. Pink Punch, on the other hand is a little bit too pigmented if you put a lot on so I tend to stick to putting a little bit on and then a clear gloss to make it just look like a pigmented gloss. These would be great if you were on a tight budget/just starting make-up as they are really affordable, pigmented and moisturizing.

The next product is more of a lip crayon and it is the Barry M matte me up in 02. This is one of my favourite lip products for Spring as it is a beautiful matte light pink. I haven't had much experience with matte products so i wasn't really sure what to expect when I first got this but I was really surprised at how moisturizing this was. As it was matte I thought I would be quite a drying product but it isn't that drying - I do recommend using a balm and scrub underneath as sometimes they product does show chapped lips etc.

The next product I am going to share with you is one that I use a lot. It is the Kiko Deco Delight lipstick in 0251812002. This is a really pretty pink with pale pink dots around the outside so when it reaches the top it is like a highlight and it makes your lips really glossy. If I remember correctly this was a summer exclusive product so you cannot get it anymore but I am sure Kiko do very similar products.

The next thing is more a brand than 1 product but oh well. I love all of the Tanya Burr Cosmetics lip glosses. I find that they last for ages ad have great pigmentation. They are also really shiny but they aren't sticky. I have 2 from the old collection(no longer sold) and one from the Christmas range(no longer sold). The 2 I have from the old collection are First Date and Aurora. First Date is a very pale pink which I like to use over a pink/nude lipstick. Aurora is a dark pink but it isn't red - I like to use this on it's own in summer to give a really nice wash of colour. The one I have from the Christmas Collection is Cotton Cane from the Candy Cane set. It is a pale pink which has pigmentation but it isn't as pigmented as the other 2. Recently. Tanya re-released her range and First Date and Aurora are no longer sold in Superdrug but I think they are still being sold on amazon so if you are interested check them out on Amazon (world-wide).

The last product i want to share with you is the Natural Collection moisture shine Lipstick in Pink Mallow. This shade is a beautiful non-glittery pink nude which would be great for if you were still at school because it isn't too bright of a shade and it is also really affordable.

I really hope you enjoyed this post and I will se you again at 5 pm GMT on Wednesday.

Love Lou
