My Favorite Everyday Lipglosses & Lipbalms

by - Monday, August 26, 2019

When I don't feel like wearing a lipstick, lipglosses and lipbalms are the way to go for me mostly because of their low maintenance, and here are a few of my favorites...

Bareminerals Buttercream  Lipgloss-these are great for every occasion-school, work, fancy dinner parties, and also on top of a lipstick or lip pencil as they're very sheer and non-sticky. These are also one of my favorite high end lipglosses because of the way they are formulated (and being cruelty-free is a bonus!). I have started a collection of these because of how beautiful they are and I now own five-Fancy, a true pink, Must Have, a mid-toned mauve, Snarky, which is discontinued, but is a lovely rosy pink, Heartbreaker, a deep mauve, and Forbidden, a pale pink.

Kiko Creamy Lipgloss-the Kiko Creamy Lipglosses are technically a lip crayon with a high pigment finish but they are super easy to apply, and also provide a beautiful wash of color. I have 3 of these, and sadly all of the colors I have are discontinued: Vintage Rose, a deep rosy pink, Watermelon Pink, a slightly red toned neutral pink, and Strawberry Pink, a slightly pale pink.

Essence XXXL Lipgloss-unfortunately, if I have a favorite, it's definitely going to be discontinued, and the Essence XXXL lipglosses have bitten the dust in favor of newer products coming out, but I will forever love these glittery lipglosses due to their natural finish, despite being chock full of shimmer, and how affordable they were ($3 per piece). I have 3 colors: Nude Kiss, my all time favorite and a pinky nude, Big Night Out, a mauve, and Glamour to Go, a pale gold.
Fresh Sugar Lip Balms-I swear I'm going to keep a collection of these because these are the They are hydrating, yet also provide a lovely wash of color without being too sheer and have a fresh lemon scent. I own three of these currently: Petal, a sheer nude pink, Bloom, a neutral pink, and Tulip, a sheer hot pink.

Butter London Plush Rush Tinted Lip Treatment-the Butter London Plush Rush Lip Treatments are essentially a dupe of the Fresh Sugar Balms: lemon scented, nourishing, and adds a nice wash of color, with the exception of its design. The Tinted Lip Treatments have two rings: a ring of color, and a ring that dumps everything that makes your lips be normal. I have the color Double Date, a beautiful mauve color.

Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip Balm-Again, like everything I've ever loved in my life, the Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip Balms have up and been discontinued in favor of new products that Bite are releasing, but I love how natural these are, and how they have a little resveratrol, which is a group of compounds that essentially acts like antioxidants and is also found in the skin of red grapes (the normal grapes that everyone and their mom eats and is also found in wine). I have the shade Lychee, which is basically a light pinky nude that matches my own lip color.
