First of all, a very merry Christmas to all those who are celebrating today! I’m actually prepping this on Christmas Eve so I can give my full attention to tomorrow’s festivities.
So, in the spirit of the season, I wanted to share a little love with some products that I think don’t get enough of it in the internet beauty world. I’ve got 3 picks to share that are all affordable, pigmented, wear well, and are just generally fab.
First up, the pick that inspired this post, the Ulta Lip Crayon. I got this as part of a set of Ulta lip products and this one for me was the standout. The color, Daredevil, is RIGHT up my alley, it’s comfortable, easy to apply, and gives off a quite nice shine.
Next is the lovely Mocha-Liciy ous, a.k.a. Wet N Wild Megalast Lipcolor, 914C. A velvety matte that works perfectly for recreating that 90’s vibe all we over-30 somethings know and love.
Third is an ELF product that seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle of all of their recent new launches, the EX-tra Lip Gloss. This one, Luke, is my fave, but I also have it in the nude pink, Scott, and it’s a fabulous for getting those lips looking a little fuller in a more understated way.
Lastly, I wanted to throw in a couple of honorable mentions, which I’ve featured before, but that I think work well for this category of products.
Essence Long Lasting Lip Color in Barely There: featured as one of my fave my lips but better shades
ELF’s Lip Kiss Balm in Sweet Berry: actually featured on Beautyforgood’s Instagram, so here’s that shot
Which are your under-appreciated faves?
