Happy Sunday! Thanks for sticking with me through my Best of 2014 series! It's been a blast picking out the best and brightest of the year, and hearing about your favorites. Today's post will close out the series, and you may say I saved the best for last: L I P S !
DRUGSTORE: Aquaphor Healing Ointment, $5.26 USD (two 10 gram tubes). Non-sticky, scent and taste-free, budget-friendly, and ultra hydrating. Aquaphor will always be one of my HG balms!
HIGH-END: Supergoop! Acai Fusion Lip Balm SPF 30, $8.50 USD. Super smooth and moisturizing, this balm packs SPF 30 making it a perfect daytime companion. It has no taste, but smells like a tropical vacation in a tube. My two HG balms without SPF are Glossier Balm Dotcom, $12.00 USD (mega moisturizing, scent and taste-free, and the tube packs 20 ml of product!) and Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask, $26.00 USD (truly a repairing salve that works miracles on dry lips!).
DRUGSTORE: CoverGirl Colorlicious Lip Gloss in Plumlicious, $6.39 USD. Super comfortable (non-sticky) and nicely pigmented, this gorgeous violet gloss leaves your lips feeling hydrated. The doe foot wand makes application a breeze!
HIGH-END: NARS Lip Gloss in Salamanca, $26.00 USD. Another ultra smooth, non-sticky hero, this watermelon pink gloss lived in my purse all summer and accompanied me on my honeymoon to Puerto Rico. This one also comes with a doe foot applicator, which is my personal preference to a brush, roller ball, or chisel tip squeeze tube.
Maybelline The Buffs Lipstick in 940 Touchable Taupe, $8.29 USD. This gorgeous mocha shade takes me back to the mid-90s when brown lipstick as was as cool as a cucumber. I've never lost my love for brown-based colors, and this shade is a stunner!
HIGH-END: MAC Lustre Lipstick in Syrup, $ USD. This cool rosy pink looks different on everyone due to the Lustre formula; less pigment allows for one's natural lip color to show through a bit and influence the resulting shade. I love it because it's comfortable to wear and has that great low-maintenaince, mirror-free application thing going for it!
