Does anyone have one lip product that they swear by & wear every single day? Because I’m dying to meet you! At the bottom of my purse, you’ll usually find a collection of lipsticks, balms, and glosses; I have a hard time committing to one product. Although just because I carry many options around, doesn’t mean that each is not equally loved. While cleaning my purse this week, I decided to round up a few of the lip products I’ve been addicted to this Spring!
To start, I want to introduce you to Treat Beauty because a few of their products are sprinkled throughout this post. This is not sponsored at all, this is just a fabulous small business that I’ve fallen in love with and am excited to share with you! 😉
So long story short, after complaining about my chapped lips on Instagram, someone recommended that I check out Treat Beauty and their incredible line of organic lip balms (thank you Marcella)! She had nothing but extraordinary things to say and I was immediately intrigued by their delicious scents and jumbo packaging. The company ended up reaching out and invited me to order a few to try. After much debate, I settled on: the fan favorite, Confetti Cake lip balm (so YUM), a couple of treatments, and a tinted balm as well.
I am a huge fan of lip scrubs, and while I’ve tried many (and even made my own in the past), I have to say this Marshmallow Cream scrub is a game changer! It is so easy & convenient to use, it smells/tastes incredible, and it’s going to last you a long time. If you’re in the market, check it out. The second treatment is their Mint & Matcha Tea Eye & Lip Balm – this product quickly became a staple in my daily beauty routine. I apply it beneath my eyes in the morning and at night to cool, firm, smooth, and hydrate the area. It’s caffeinated and again, so easy to use. Multi-functional products are my jam!
Alright lets move onto some color! I’ve been very into tinted balms this season, it’s an easy way to spice up a makeup-less face, or give yourself a hint of color without committing to a heavy lip. Two products I’ve been loving are the Buxom Powerplump Lip Balm in the shade “Glowing”. I was initially thrilled to try a plumping product, but was disappointed by the lack of plump. 🙁 However, I wasn’t disappointed with it’s shade or wear! This particular color is a mix of orange/pink and is actually pretty buildable if you’re looking for a deeper shade.
The other one I’ve been enjoying is the Treat Beauty Cream Soda Tinted lip balm. It’s very similar in shade to the Buxom, but it does have a hint of shimmer to it as you can see in the swatch above. Both are really beautiful, easy to wear, and great for everyday!
While on the subject of balms, I want to touch on this super luxe product. It’s the YSL Volupte Liquid Color Balm in the shade “Chase Me Nude” and is prettyyy fab. It’s definitely a splurge and not something I’d normally shell out the $$ for, but it was sent to me c/o Influenster and I happened to really like it. 🙂 This formula smells like fresh grapefruit and gives you the shiniest, juiciest looking lips! It wears well throughout the day, comes in the prettiest packaging I ever did see, and gives the perfect hint of shiny, sheer color.
Last but not least, the old faithfuls …my go-to’s! The Milani lip liner in “Nude” is something I’ve worn and raved about for years. It’s a great bang for your buck, and I like to pair it with both of these lipsticks! The first is the Bare Minerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Swag” – I’ve been a fan of this product and color since fall of last year and I can’t get enough. It smells like cocoa, applies incredibly smooth, lasts pretty well throughout the day, and is just the most beautiful shade of pink. The second is a Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in the shade “Rossetto” (#14). It’s a bit more brown/nude, but I love the way that it wears with the Milani liner. It’s creamy and compliments many different makeup looks.

That is pretty much it my friends! I hope you enjoyed this post, and mayyybe found a couple of new lip products you may like to try! 😉 I want to try and get better about a posting schedule. You think it’d be easy, but I can never seem make one that works for me. I’d love to get two blog posts and two videos live per week. I kind of like the Monday/Thursday thing? If you’re a blogger or YouTuber, let me know what your posting schedule is and why it works well for you!
Thank you all for reading! I’m so excited that it’s almost Friday… I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
