Makeup MAYhem Day 23 - Spring & Summer Lip Picks!


From Left to Right: NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fuschia, OCC Matte Lip Tar in Pretty Boy,  Revlon JBKBS in Sweetheart Valentine, Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Apocalyptic, and YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in 13


Hey guys! Today I will be doing a post showing you the lip products I will most certainly be wearing the most in spring and summer! I was requested to do this post by Megan Joy and I finally got around to doing it! In this post, I have featured three drugstore, and two high end picks! It would've been even...however my Mac Impassioned is missing...and I have absolutely no idea where it is! I've gone through all of my purses and makeup bags, and its not there! Currently very upset right now... but in the mean time, lets get back to the main topic of the post: bright lip colors!

From Left to Right: NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fuschia, OCC Matte Lip Tar in Pretty Boy,  Revlon JBKBS in Sweetheart Valentine, Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Apocalyptic, and YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in 13

NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fuschia: Retailing at $1.99, this is the cheapest in the bunch of products I have here today. It is also the most underrated. To be honest, if Influenster didn't send me this product, I wouldn't have picked this up in the drugstore. Once I applied this on my lips though, I realized that I was missing out! By far, this is the most blue toned out of all the lip products I have here today. It is a true fuschia and it is perfect for that bright pop of color that no one is expecting (especially since it's borderline purple). 

OCC Matte Lip Tar in Pretty Boy: This came in a set Pink Prism with a primer and another lip tar, retailing for $19 at Sephora. I posted a first impressions video on my Youtube channel, and I have to say this is by far one of the longest lasting lip product I have in my collection. Although the application of this can be tedious, I still feel like this is a fantastic product to use! This is another fuschia, but it is more on the pink side rather than the purple. 

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Sweetheart Valentine: Retailing at $8.99, these Revlon jumbo lip pencils are still a favorite throughout the beauty community. Don't be fooled by the swatch, this lip product can be built to be really bright on the lips. I've had this for over two years now, and I still use this product constantly! This is more of a bright hot pink lip!

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Apocalyptic: Priced at $4.79, these liquid lipsticks are absolutely stunning! This is a bright pink fuschia liquid lipstick.  I have a detailed review of this here, and I have to say that even though its been about a year since I got it, I still love this product! The pigmentation is great, and I love the finish that this lip product gives. 

YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in #13 Peach Passion: Retailing at $35, this bears two distinctions in my collection. One, it is the only coral lip product I own and two, it is the most expensive lip product I own. I usually like to top this one off with a gloss, because it has a tendency to making me look a tad bit washed out. Otherwise, it is a fantastic lip product!

  21. I love OCC lip tars! My favorite from them is a similar color - anime. I agree with them being super tedious to apply but I can get through an entire day with it and I can't say that for any other lipsticks I own.
    I've been obsessed with orange shades lately and have been really liking the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Heftiest Hibiscus.

  26. Do you apply the Lip Tar with a lipstick brush or just with your finger tip? It's a gorgeous colour!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I apply the lip tar with a lipstick brush! I find it to be a bit easier to apply. And yes, it is a gorgeous color!

  30. Visiting from the blog hop :-)
    I love the look of the NYC lip color - I don't think I'd ever go this bright (though I love it when others do!) but it looks like a good formula to try in other shades at a cheap price!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks for visiting from the blog hop! Definitely try out other shades from the line...the formula is FANTASTIC.

  32. pauline how long does the YSL lipstick last on you ? :) i want to get it cause of its pretty packaging but its so expensif and i heard some shades doesnt last very long

    ReplyDelete
  33. It's not a particularly long lasting lipstick to be honest. Like maybe 4 hours without eating? You'll have to reapply throughout the day!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Gorgeous shades! x
