The Comfiest Lipsticks Edit
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m not a lipstick or lipgloss person. On the occasions I decide to wear lipstick, I’m much more likely to go for something full-on like a red or hot pink than I am to just wear neutral shades every day. As for gloss, I tend to hate the texture.
However, lip products really tie a look together…so I’m stuck between hating the feeling and wanting the look. Lucky I have these little guys.
I’m always hunting out comfortable lipsticks. Nothing too drying or high-maintenance, something that still has colour but is going to leave my lips feeling nice afterward. After searching high and low, these are my picks.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in “Black Cherry” is a bit of a classic in the beauty community. It isn’t super moisturizing to wear, but I chose it because it makes for a gorgeous berry stain when sheered out. Layer on a balm and it doesn’t get much more comfortable than that. (It also makes an amazing cream blush – just dab it on your cheeks and blend out with your fingers!)
I am just generally crazy about the Revlon Lip Butters’ formula. It feels like lip balm on, but isn’t so creamy that the richer shades won’t stay put. “Red Velvet” is a rich, brick red that makes a nice, shiny alternative to the classic matte red lip. I wear this without a lip liner and can get hours of wear out of it.
“Fig Jam” is probably my favourite Revlon Lip Butter. It was the first one I purchased and is just such a great shade for me. Although it looks intimidating, it translates as a very sheer red-brown with lots of moisture and shine. This one’s almost done, and I have a spare waiting for me.
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine is another very hydrating line of lipsticks, although they do have a thinner consistency than the Lip Butters. “Deauville” works as a perfect nude for me, and it’s just effortless to throw on!
Finally, another Lip Butter – Revlon’s formula just kills it, I tell you. Raspberry Pie is probably my second-most-used lipstick, as it’s also almost done. It’s a flattering red-leaning bright pink that works really well on my skin tone. It’s super pigmented and opaque in a few swipes. You could also sheer it out for a pretty wash of colour.
And that’s it! As you can tell, I adore Revlon Lip Butters. They just leave my lips so hydrated and happy when I take them off – I seriously wish they would release a clear Lip Butter, like they did with the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine.
