My Lip Regime

So, I am absolutely crazy about my lips. My lips are my favorite feature on my face. With that said, that means I must take great care of my lips. I am so crazy about my lips that I have about four products that I put on my lips BEFORE applying lipstick. Below I have outlined the products and my process. Enjoy! 🙂

First, I outline the area outside of my natural lip line using the e.l.f. Lip Lock Pencil. I use this to keep my lipstick from feathering or budging outside of my lip line. It sells for $3 on e.l.f.’s website.

Second, I line and fill in my lips using the No Bleeding Lips Secret Lip Liner. It is an invisible liner which I prefer to use as my daily lip liner because I don’t have to worry about finding a lip liner that complements the lip color I am wearing that day. It sells for $15 on Sephora’s website.

Next, I prime my lips using Aquaphor (sold at any drugstore or grocery store and sells for approximately $4) and MAC Prep + Prime Lip, $16.50 on MAC’s website. I probably don’t have to use both, but I started and I just can’t stop. lol! I use both of these to moisturize my lips before applying my lipstick, no matter what kind of lipstick I am using. I do this because my lips dry out really easily, which is even more of a problem when wearing lipstick.

Lastly, I apply my lip color of the day and GO! Easy peasy!

Winter is Almost Here, Time to Moisturize Your Lips!

Winter is around the corner, which means much cooler days and dryer skin. Blah! But, in order to still feel sexy even in the cold weather, you must keep your lips soft and kissable. I experienced two Milwaukee winters and my lips tend to be on the drier side (unfortunately *sad face*), so I know a thing or two about good lip moisturizers. I have compiled my top four favorite lip moisturizers that you should add to your collection. Enjoy! 🙂

  1. Eucerin Aquaphor, 1.75 oz – $5.00
    • A step above vaseline. I use this to moisturize my lips before applying lipstick.
  2. Vaseline, 7.5 oz -$3.67
    • Well we all know how I feel about vaseline. Refer to this post. 
  3. Rosebud Salve, 0.8 oz – $6.00
    • This is a new product that I have come across and I love the consistency of this on my lips. Super moisturizing. Definitely recommend! Read my full review about this product here.
  4. Blistex, 0.15 oz x 3 pack, $4.19
    • This is a no brainer. Blistex is the perfect chapstick. I recommend it over any brand because it actually keeps your lips moisturized and acts as a barrier against harsh winds.

Do you use any of these products or will you try them out for the winter? Let me know!
