I'm not exactly sure why but lately I have been absolutely enamored with layering lip products.
Okay okay I take it back I think I know why... it's because I've been really freaking amazing at not buying myself excessive and fanciful products this year (clearly I'm not bitter at all) and instead have been trying to get creative with the cosmetics that I already have.
Thankfully my thriftiness with my makeup drawers has been a fruitful endeavor so I figured I should share my findings with you all today!!
Take the usual jump for details :D
(L-R) Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain "Romantic" / H&M Apple & Guava Flavored Lip Gloss / Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain "Crush" / Smashbox Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss "Limitless"
Two of my favorite layering creations, and two of the most complimented, are with these products.
Because I'm using the balm stain as a base my lips are given great pigment and stay extremely hydrated throughout the day. Putting a lipgloss on top just seals in that moisture and really gives a unique finish because it mixes with the balm stain rather than just sitting on top of it.
Feel free to insert ooo's and ahhh's here.
I find that layering these products creates an absolute powerhouse; the colors produced are gorgeous and they tend to last at least 5 hours before wearing off on my lips.
Do you ever layer your lip products?
What are some of your favorite combinations?
