Guess what? I’m finally home again! I was released from the hospital today. Although I’m still processing what happened and I’m not entirely myself again I’m definitely on the road to recovery. Well, what better way to try and get my old self back than to just blog, right? Most of you guys are probably back to school or uni now. Uni would have started on Monday for me but I’m not entirely sure when I will be able to attend classes again.
Anyway… I’m a total lip product addict. It’s just my obsession. Now I’ve featured a lot of bold lip colors on my blog but when I go to uni I tend to stay more on the natural side. I usually just have one lecture or seminar a day, so I just don’t feel the need to wear some crazy lip color and if I’m being honest I’m to lazy to put in that extra effort. Hence I like to wear more neutral shades. So today I’m showing you three of my favorite high end and three of my favorite high street lip products I love for school/uni.
First up are two glosses. Yes, you’ve read that right. I’m actually including lip glosses in this post. In general I’m definitely more of a lipstick girl but these two glosses are amazing. Neither of them are sticky which is just a huge plus!
Mac Dreamy is a gloss I’ve had for quite a while now. It’s a beautiful sheer light pink. It looks really natural on the lips but it does add a little shimmer. As the name already says it’s really just dreamy. It’s perfect for any natural look.
NYX Butter Gloss in Maple Blondie
Even though I’m usually not big on glosses I LOVE the NYX Butter Glosses. They aren’t sticky, last quite a while and the color range is gorgeous. They apply as smooth as butter and are so moisturizing on the lips. One of my favorite shades is Maple Blondie. It’s more of a bright peachy but sheer pink gloss, which makes it a great nude for me. Just love it!
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait
The Revlon Lip Butters are another line of lip products I just love. I seriously wish I’d have all of them but one of my favorites from the line is Peach Parfait. It’s this gorgeous peachy shade. It’s just so perfect for an every day make up because it does add some color without being too much.
Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick Bronze Goddess
This one is without a doubt one of my favorite nude lipsticks. It’s quite sheer but the color is definitely buildable. It’s quite shimmery, so if you prefer a matte finish this isn’t for you.
Michael Kors Lip Laquer in Diva
Here’s another peachy nude. I think almost all of my nude lipsticks are peachy because I’m so pale. Peachy nudes don’t make me look white as a wall or dead as a ghost. This one has light to medium coverage and is quite sheer as well.
Mac Shy Girl
This might be my ultimate nude lipstick. It’s another peachy one and it’s really nicely pigmented. It lasts incredibly long. It’s beautiful. It’s perfection. If you’re pale like me and you’re looking for a really good nude lippie, that doesn’t make you look even whiter this is the one. And it’s great for every occasion whether it’s school, uni, work or shopping.
Well, this is it. These are my favorite lip products for school/uni. Whenever I feel like smacking on some gloss/ lipstick but don’t want to bother with the effort bold lip colors take these are the ones I reach for the most.
Hope you enjoyed this post.
