For somebody as opposed to on-the-go makeup touchups as I am, I carry a surprisingly large collection of lip products around with me. I think it's become a habit that each time I leave the house I throw another one in for good measure. Whether I've ever used any of them while out is a whole different matter, but as always it's better to be safe than sorry.
The Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colour in Pink Rose continues to be amongst my most loved lipsticks of all time. Not as wishy washy as the name suggests, it provides a subtle pop of berry-pink that lasts surprisingly well for an option with 'sheer' in the title. It's comfortable and wearable and the colour itself has an almost sophisticated vibe about it, much like the Max Factor Colour Collection Lipstick in the shade Rosewood. A nude with the perfect balance of brown and pink undertones, this shade pretty much encompasses exactly what I look for on an everyday basis. The satin finish is pretty spot on too, making it one that I frequently opt for over more expensive options.
Although I'm not the biggest advocate of MAC lipsticks some have still managed to sneak in somehow. Admittedly it's probably due to the fact that they last practically no time at all on me, so if I'm destined to need a touch up of anything it's these. Twig and Patisserie are without doubt my most used shades, offering a pretty, neutral wash of colour if only for a short while.
The rest are likely to have slipped into my bag for convenience purposes. The Clinique Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry rarely makes it back to my dresser, instead being probably the most used of my on-the-go choices. The balmy formula makes for few mistakes, as does the convenience of applying this kind o product without a mirror. The Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Red Dahlia is another well loved product and gives lips a perfectly subtle hint of shine and colour while still managing to pack an extra punch of hydration. Lastly is the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in 'Sex Machine', which again is incredibly easy to apply on the move. My one gripe would be that I'm really struggling to find a sharpener to fit this one and I've pretty much drained the colour down to the stub. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
