Tomorrow it is Valentine’s Day again. Do you celebrate it? I do not really celebrate it except for cooking something together or dining out. But no fancy presents or stuff like that. Spending time is more important after all. ♥ Nevertheless, it is never wrong to make yourself more pretty than you are by putting on some makeup…or at least put some more efford into your daily makeup. I have selected a bunch of lip products which I considered perfectly suited for this occasion. Here are my Top 6 Favorite Lip Products for Valentine’s Day:
Since Valentine’s Day is about love of course the first thing that comes into my mind is kissing. Last year I wrote about how to achieve kissable lips in 3 steps (>>click here<<). After you have pampered your lips it is time to put on some color. I love red lips! It is the most sensual and classic color for lips. But there are so many different shades of red that it is not easy to decide on one. I picked 6 different shades of red and each of the products has their own special texture, reaching from glossy to matte.
Innisfree Real Fit Lipstick in shade 5
I reviewed this lipstick before and I must admit I’m a fan of Innifree lipsticks in general. I love their sleek design and their textures. The Real Fit Lipsticks have a good pigmentation and are a mixture between matte and shiny lipsticks. What I love especially is the rich raspberry shade of this lipstick. The Innisfree Real Fit Lipstick retails from W2Bauty for 14.27 US$.
Etude House Twin Shot Lips in shade RD302
The Etude House Twin Shot Lips has been one of my favorite to-go lip products during the last months. I love that it has two sides with two different colors and texture. One side has a mousse texture and a beige/nude color, the other side has a tint-type texture and a bright red shade. You can create beautiful gradient lip tones with this product, or use each of the sides by their own. The Etude House Twin Shot Lips retail for 14.40 US$ from the official Etude House.
L’Oréal Infaillible Lip Paint Matte in shade 205
This is my latest addition to my lip products collection and I love it so much, that I had to include it in this post. This red shade called Apocalypse Red is a rich dark red shade. The texture of this liquid lipstick is velvety and appears matte after drying down, without making your lips dry out. The L’Oréal Lip Paints retail for 17.87 €/ 7.96 € on Amazon.de.
Mac Retro Matte Lipstick in shade Ruby Woo
This is the shade that every women should have in their collection! The most classy cherry red matte lipstick! It retails for 24.94 US$ on Amazon.com.
Pony Effect Staying Matte Fit Lip Colour in shade Flawless
Another lip product that I’ve reviewed previously. This lipstick is a truly matte liquid lipstick in tomato red. The shade is so pretty and on top the product doesn’t leave a heavy or dring feeling on the lips. The Staying Matte Fit Lip retails for 26.26 US$ from W2Beauty.
Tonymoly Perfect Lips Shocking Lips in shade Red
Another product I already reviewed and mentioned several times on my Instagram. This is also one of the lip tints I’m using most often, especially when going out. First of all the red is super vibrant. Second, the stain of this tint is super super long-lasting. Even from all these swatches here, this one was the hardest to remove. This lip tint retails for W2Beauty for 13.55 US$.
Below you can see the swatches of all the shades. They look so versatile although all of them are simply red shades! I love how different red can actually be, not boring and old-school at all in my opinion. Which of the shades is your favorite?
♥ Happy Valentine’s Day! ♥
