Welcome back to my blog ♥
Pucker up, friends! Welcome to part 3 of the MAKEUP PRODUCTS EVERY COLLEGE STUDENT SHOULD OWN series! If you haven’t seen my past two posts on face and eyes, check them out here and here!
Today it’s all about the lips! 💋 I love lip products. I love how every lip color adds a little pizazz to your look and GAH I’m obsessed. On a typical school day, I only wear lip balm to keep my lips from feeling dry BUT when I’m feeling a bit saucy, I whip out my liquid lipsticks!
Like the last two parts of this series, I will be including both high end and lower end products to help you with whatever price point you’re at! And of course, don’t forget to check out drugstore weekly ads because something is always on sale! Happy bargain shopping!
To have a flawless finish to your lipstick/liquid lipsticks, you must start with a smooth base. That’s where the lip scrubs come in. There are a lot of lip scrubs in the market but I love this homemade recipe from The Wonder Forest (original recipe here). It’s made with all natural ingredients and you probably have them at home as we speak! Go give it a try!
You will need:
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp white sugar
- 1 tsp of honey
- 1/2 tsp of olive oil
Mix all the ingredients and BAM you have a lip scrub! Massage it onto your lips for about 20 seconds and wipe off for smoother lips!
Chapped lips is a big no no especially if you want to look good during your exam. I mean if you don’t do well, at least you look good doing it, right? (lol im kidding) NOHBODY likes a chapped lip. It just feels so…uncomfortable! So I’ve included a list of lip balms that I’ve tried and loved and I hope you find one that fits your needs!
- Chapstick total hydration (coconut hydration)- $2.99-get it here
I lovveeee anything coconut flavored (but not actual coconut..) and this chapstick has the perfect hint of coconut flavor. It has a 3 in 1 hydration system that keeps your lips looking gooood.
- EOS Lipbalm -$3.29- get it here
Some people aren’t a big fan of this lip balm and at one point, it gave people weird rashes on their upper lip but I like it xD My favorite flavors are Sweet Mint and Summer Fruit. It is infused with Vitamin E, which moisturizes and protects your lips from harsh conditions!
- Burt’s Bees- $3.29- get it here
I’ve tried this lip balm in so many different flavors and loved them all. My favorites are the Coconut & pear, Pomegranate, and Beeswax. This lip balm is made with 100% natural ingredients and is infused with Vitamin E to renew your lips! It tastes good and makes your lips feeling moisturized af.
As I mentioned before, I don’t always wear lip colors. But sometimes I just want to dazzle up a bit! Here are some lip colors that I’ve tried and love!
I’m so glad I discovered ColourPop lippies. It’s great quality lip color for a very affordable price. The only downside is that it’s hard to pick out colors that would look good on you cause it’s all online. Also, you have to wait for shipping and I’m impatient! HAHA Word on the street though, it’s coming to Sephora!!! Yasss I’m so excited! 🙌
