First up is the Lotil Lip Balm*; a cheap, yet cheerful lip balm that soothes and heals chapped lips. Unlike other SPF lip balms I have tried, this is lightweight and not tacky to feel at all. If there's one product you need this Summer, it's this.
Slowly but surely, liquid lipsticks are becoming more readily available on the high street, but it's the NYX Lip Lingerie's that really steal the show. They have a weightless formula, yet they don't budge or crumble after wear. Push Up and Bedtime Flirt are two nude hues that I'm smitten with. If you're after a more moisturising option, then the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are your best bet. They look gorgeous on their own, but they come in useful if you need a top up of moisture when wearing a liquid lipstick.
The Sleek Matte Me Liquid Lipsticks* are another lip product that you need to snap up. Unlike other liquid lipsticks, these take more than a few minutes to dry, so it gives you enough time to sheer it out if you'd like a more natural finish. I would suggest applying a few layers of lip balm before application, but once they've dried there's no risk of them budging.
If matte lipsticks are your thing but you'd rather not opt for a liquid lipstick, then the Revlon Colour Burst Matte Balm in Sultry is perfect. Sultry- a brown plum hue- was a shade I was smitten with from the get-go, but the smell of these is something I've had to get used to. Nevertheless, the Matte Balms are a great option for those new to matte lipsticks and Sultry is the one you need if you're already looking for a new Autumn shade.
The Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Vintage Pink has been featured on my blog many times before due to it's hydrating properties and rich colour. If you're afraid of sporting a bolder lip, then this is the perfect option for you. With a comfortable formula and glossy finish, these make for a great wearable, everyday lipstick.
