{Only Pick 1} Lips Edition


Time for the lippie edition of my Only Pick 1 series. This week and next week (scents) are going to be a little bit different. I changed up the categories a little because they were a little bit harder. I needed more categories people! Plus, it's my series so technically there aren't any rules right?! #perks 

What shades do I tend to go for? Browns & mauves are my comfort zone but I love a good bright pink lip in the summer. I've yet to really go for deep reds, but I plan on conquering that fear soon because I definitely love the look.

Favorite Lip Products

Lip Scrub | elf Lip Exfoliator 
I've tried a lot of different lip scrubs, to me they're all the same. Therefore, I'm a fan of the $3 elf one. I use it about once a week. I dampen my lips, exfoliate and wipe it off with some warm water and a washcloth or cotton pad. Voila, a soft kisser! 

Gloss, just need something on my lips | NYX Butter Gloss
I LOVE the NYX butter glosses, all of them. Not really for the color because they really aren't super pigmented. I love these for the times I'm very casual and just want a gloss with light color on my lips. These are my go to. The are so creamy and not sticky at all. Plus, only $5.

Gloss, favorite color | Buxom Lip Polish in Gabby
This one is my go to gloss when I color and oh how I adore it. The Buxom glosses are awesome! They are on the stickier side, but not in a bad way at all. It's hard to explain... They last a good amount of time on me too. This is a mauve tone gloss and it's perfect for a great pop of color but not too intense. 

This is my "if I could only pick 1 lip product period" product. All the beauty blogs I've read and the YouTubers I've watched, I've never seen one person talk about this. I'm on my 2nd tube of it and I will continue to repurchase. Honestly, I feel like the pictures just make it look like another nude lipstick, but it's not. It's the perfect mix of brown and mauve. It's my "your lips but better" shade for sure. Can you tell I'm a fan?

Ah ha, bet you weren't expecting that one?! You thought I'd say EOS huh? Well, I do enjoy my EOS balms, especially Sweet Mint, but this has been my favorite since I was a teenager. No major reason, it just works best for me and I buy in bulk. We're a house divided. Dustin - Chapstick brand / Mia - Blistex Brand. We each dislike the other brand too, weird huh. 

MAC lipstick Buxom Lip Polish

Next week I'm sharing some of my favorite body product scents that I'll always repurchase. 


Don't forget about the giveaways from Mon & Tues: Enter for some Fun Girly Goodies and a Kate Spade watch

  2. My favorite lipstick is MAC's Cosmo, which looks very similar to your favorite shade - I'll need to check it out!

  3. Midimauve looks like a lipstick I need to add to my collection stat - it really is your "my lips but better" shade! It looks beautiful on you. I loved all these picks; I'm a Nivea lip balm gal, and I also adore the elf lip scrub - you really can't go wrong for $3.

  4. Isn't it funny how everyone has their "own" go to chapstick?! Mine has been Carmex and I wish they sold that in bulk, too! Love love love the Buxom glosses, I may need to pick this shade up!

  5. Ohhhh, definitely try a bold red! With your coloring, it would be gorg!

    And so true about chapstick brands! I'm a Burt's Bees girl myself, and would fight someone to get my hands on the last available tube.

  6. oh my goodness I forgot all about buxom polish- I'm obsessed with Dolly but just haven't seen it lately!

  7. I've never heard of that Midimauve colour. Although I typically don't go toward brown/mauve shades as much. You definitely could rock a red lip!

  8. I officially need midmauve! Such a great color. I have to side with Dustin on the chapstick- though I don't think I've used anything from Blistex in forever, so maybe I should try and compare :)

  9. Love the butter glosses!!! I tend to stick to more mauvey/nude shades but I have one pink one by MAC (its called SNOB) that I love!! That's my go-to chapstick in the winter too!

  10. Chapstick - always a classic.
    I love Burt Bees lip balms too... I'm glad they make some with tints in them.

  11. Dude I'm all about lips. ALL about lips. But when it comes to wearing bolder/brighter colors I get SO FREAKING NERVOUS haha!

  12. Love that midimauve color on you! I cannot do browns very well, so I tend to stay on the pink/berry side of the spectrum but that midimauve looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  13. The Buxom and the MAC look lovely on you! Those are great colors too. I feel like I can pretty much wear anything except for anything that's super nude or light pink. They just don't work on my skin tone. I think that you could a bold lip color too, give it try some time! Hope that you are having a great week too! :-)

  14. Love that Buxom gloss! It looks gorgeous and so appropriate for fall. I need to try some of the NYX Butter Glosses- non-sticky glosses are great for low-key days.

  15. Love the Buxom gloss! I've used the clear for years! But, you can't go wrong with NYX.

  16. I have seen the Elf Lip Exfoliator, but have been skeptical to try it out. Maybe I will pick it up after I finish using my all time favorite, the Lush Lip Scrub!

  19. That MAC lipstick is the perfect shade for you! I want to get into red lips, too, but it's so hard to find the right one!

    xo Always, Abby

  20. Gabby looks awesome on you! I'll sub your Blistex for my Chapstick though ha. Totally agree on the Nyx lip butter since I'm not a lipstick wearer (#scaredycat).

    ReplyDelete
  21. Okay, I've heard you talk about Midimauve and I feel like I have to have it now! Looks like a pretty everyday color. Perfect!

  22. I have to try those butter glosses--I hear such great things :) Both of these looks so good on you--Idk how you choose !

  23. I recently got a lip scrub from LUSH and I love it! I was an elf fan myself until I tried this one. I'm going to have to add that MAC shade to my wishlist, it's beautiful! I hate lip glosses, but I love the NYX Butter ones. It's the only lip gloss I will use. I purchased a tube after reading about it on your blog and now I want every color so thanks for sharing! Also, take the plunge and do the red lips. You can pull it off and will be glad you tried it. I love your blog!

  24. I absolutely love Buxom in Gabby and have about 4 that float between my various bags. I really like Make Up Foever lipsticks and stains but I know just about everyone loves a Mac lipstick. IVe never tried a single Mac product, maybe it's time to branch out.

    xoxo,

  28. How funny, I love a red lip but mauve scares me. I am not much of a lipstick wearer, but I always want to be. For some reason I just don't usually think about it. I love that Blistex. but my favorite is Aquafor chapstick. Have you tried it? I'm crazy over always having chapstick.

  35. All great picks! I was a mauve/nude junkie forever and still kind of am, but I LOVE a great hot pink lip! It is such a fun way to change it up!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love Buxom lip glosses! I totally know what you mean about the description of the product. I love these series of posts you're doing! xo

  37. I think you sold me on that Mac Lipstick! I'll have to try it on, Sephora here I come!

  38. You know, I tried to use the e.l.f. lip exfoliator, but I felt like it didn't really do anything. I ended up buying the fresh sugar lip polish, and it works SO well! I've been so happy with it. Have you ever tried it?

    Blistex! It's the only chapstick that works for me! Love that stuff. I always buy so many at Target when they have that tube in stock.

    And I love both of those lip colors! It's the perfect amount of color to wear on an every day basis.

  39. NYX Butter Gloss is the best! I love how that stuff feels on my lips and gives me just enough color and shine to go with my day!
