I’ve been seeing a post around Facebook (which I think came from Tumblr) about the two moods of girls – one mood with dark, vampy lips, and the other with pretty pastels and nudes. I do have those moods, too, but as of the moment I think I’m on middle ground! Currently loving: terracotta lips.
If I made a September Favorites post, these lip products will definitely make the list. I found myself reaching for these tubes a lot these past few weeks, they pretty much haven’t left my handbag! I think they’re the perfect mix of brown, orange/peach, and pink – like a nude with a twist!
Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me in Under The Sheets
I wrote a review on this last year, which you may read here. I bought it at the height of the 90s lip trend, and I’m glad I did! My mom loves it, too. It’s one of the tubes she borrows from me often.
BYS Lip Colour Balm in Seduction
I have come to love tinted balms. I’m not very good at taking care of my lips, so I often have flaky or chapped lips. I also don’t always have the time to exfoliate, so when that happens, I resort to tinted balms such as this instead of matte lipsticks!
L’Oreal Colour Riche in Cinnamon Toast
This was a gift from my brother-in-law’s wife when she came back from the US last month. Tbh I haven’t worn this out yet, but I’ve swatched it countless times and the color is great! I promise that the next time I head out, I’m wearing this on my lips.
Colourpop Lippie Stix in Brink
I won this from an Instagram giveaway by @bbeautybox_ph. I had the option of winning any shade of Colourpop Lippie Stix and Brink was just at the top of my head that time. No regrets though, it’s such a beautiful color! It’s the perfect shade for me when I don’t feel like thinking about what color to wear on my lips.
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Bumble
Out of all these lipsticks, Bumble has got to be the one I’ve used the most. I’ve reviewed it here, if you want to know my thoughts on it. But long story short – I LOVE IT. SO MUCH.
L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss in Fleur
I normally wear this when I decide to give my Colourpop Bumble a break. LOL. Obviously, it’s a bit more orange-y so it has a whole different effect on my lips when worn. I really love it too, though. I just wish it dries as fast as the Colourpop ones!
Currently on my wishlist: MAC Taupe.
Do you have a thing for terracotta lip shades, too? 🙂
