Like most girls, my bag is full of junk, and I have no idea how it all got in there. These lip products basically live in my bag, and when I was cleaning it out recently, I found myself putting these back in because I know that I use them all the time!
I carry two lip balms – my trusty Eucerin Aquaphor ($5) and the blogger-favorite Nuxe Reve de Miel ($19). I love them both equally, and I use them differently, depending on the weather. The Nuxe one is a bit more matte, and the Aquaphor is more like vaseline, but both are fantastic.
The Clinique Almost Lipstick ($16) in Black Honey is my new favorite fall lip product. It is moisturizing, and it gives the lips a nice berry flush that isn’t too obvious. Plus, it’s sheer, so you can apply it without a mirror.
I did a full review of that stunning Givenchy Le Rouge ($36) lipstick in Brun Createur, so I won’t rave too much about it here, but it is my favorite lipstick color to date. It’s a stunning dusty rose. I typically pull this out after work when I’m running to drinks or dinner and my makeup needs a little touching up.
And of course, I have a couple of NARS lip pencils just in case. The red shade is the NARS Satin Lip Pencil ($25) in Majella, a berry-based red that wears well and is perfect for fall, and the pinker shade is the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($25) in Dolce Vita, which is essentially the same color as the Givenchy lipstick, but it’s matte. It doubles as a lipliner for that lipstick as well!
I love these, and I don’t plan on taking these out of my bag any time soon – what do y’all carry around?
