If I am ever going to splurge on a makeup item, it is usually a lip related product. I don't know how I can justify a £23 lip balm but I cant justify a Urban Decay Naked Palette but thats how my brain works! These five products are my favourites from the high end counters at the moment and if you don't have at least one of these, they are definitely worth the splurge.
My favourite type of lip product at the moment is Lip Oils, I just cant get enough of them! I have two favourites at the moment and the first is the YSL Tint-in-Oil in the shade Pink About Me. This gives the lips a very slight hint of colour but adds a tonne of gloss and keeps the lips very soft. I like to keep this in my handbag to apply over almost any lip colour as my lips tend to be very dry. My second favourite lip oil is one of the newer additions to my makeup collection which is the Lancome Juicy Shaker. I have two shades of the Juicy Shakers but I have found myself using Cherry Symphony the most. These are so hydrating on the lips and gives the lips a perfect amount of colour for everyday wear. What I really like about these is that they leave a hint behind on the lips so you don't have to rush to reapply! If you want to see swatches of the Juicy Shakers you can click HERE.
Dior lip products are some of my favourites from the high end. Not only are the products some of my most used but the packaging is absolutely stunning. The Lip Maximiser is my favourite lip gloss which is always in my handbag. It gives the lips quite some gloss and slightly plumps out the lines in my lips to make them appear fuller without that tingling feeling. I actually lost this for three days (I left it in the car by accident) and was so annoyed, so glad I found it! The Lip Glow is my all time favourite lip balm and I recently run out of one so I was so excited to get my hands on the Lilac version for my birthday! The Lip Glow is so comfortable on the lips and is slightly thicker than a usual lip balm that I would use which I really like as it lasts longer on my lips. The Lilac shade is gorgeous and I do prefer it over the pink version but I think it was limited edition so I am going to be gutted when it runs out!
My most luxurious lip product has to be the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Aura. While this shade isn't one I would typically wear every day, I always wear it when I feel like a dramatic or dark lip. Aura is hydrating on the lips and gives a good amount of colour but it isn't too intense which I really like as this shade is very dark, it is definitely on the sheerer side. I really want to pick up another shade in this formula from Chanel as it is one of my favourite lip product formulas.
