So I have been noticing that the last couple of month’s drugstore brands have come with amazing lip products. As you know I am currently at Quito, but I had a week off and went to the States, of course I had to make a trip to CVS and Walgreens.
Today I wanted to share with you these products I got and give you my thoughts on them.
NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramisu. In my trip I discovered that you can get NYX in Target now (YAY!). So this is a neutral gloss, very nice color with a nice vanilla scent and shiny. It does not dry my lips at all which is something I really like from NYX products. Downside, this is not a long lasting product so you would have to re-apply several times a day.
NYX Butter Lip Balm in Ladyfingers. I LOVE this product; it reminded me of the dollar scented lip balms my mom used to buy me from the AVON catalog when I was a child. It has a fruity scent and it is colored. It comes in several colors, I love it.
Maybelline The Elixir in Fuchsia Flourish. I believe these are Maybelline’s interpretation for the YSL Glossy Stains, may I say that this product is something unique, it is glossy and it does have staying power. When I first applied it I must say I felt the product being a bit sticky (which is something I don’t like that much) but the color payoff and the glossy look made me feel very satisfied with this product. Now the applicator is something very similar to the YSL ones.
Revlon Matte Lip Balm in Showy. Revlon did it again, they never cease to amaze me, these balms are GREAT. First of all it has this minty scent which I adore from Revlon products. Second of all it is moisturizing, you know how matte products tend to be drying? Well this is NOT dry, it lasts long time and color payoff is amazing.
Revlon Lacquer Balm in Vivacious. I love the word Lacquer (sounds so fancy lol) this is the perfect Christmas Red Lip Color, the picture doesn’t even do justice to this vibrant red which I love. It is an amazing color, I really recommend you to get this while you can.
All in all I am happy with my lippies, and can say that I am really impressed that drugstore products keep creating great quality products at half the price of High End products.
Have you tried any of these? If so what were your thoughts?
Until Next Time,
