The Lip Product Addict Tag

Never have a I taken part in a "tag" on Glazed Over..... until today. Today that allll changes, thanks to the Lip Product Addict Tag, which I oh so relate to. Apparently this tag was started by my all-time favorite YouTuber/blogger, Estee, but I stumbled upon it thanks to one of my favorite bloggers, Britney from Life, Set Sail. (If you haven't checked out her blog, do so right now!!) I wasn't tagged, but she welcomed anyone to join in. Here goes nothin....

1. Favourite Balm/Treatment
It's no secret I can't live without a good lip balm. Nothing is worse than when you realize 
you left the house WITHOUT  a lip balm... it's like your lips know and immediately go dry as a bone
(although this doesn't happen to me often as I always seem to have 5-6 lip products in my purse
at a time). I recently picked up the Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm in Shea Butter & Vitamin E and it has become a fast favorite of mine. It's lightly scented and super hydrating. I can totally 
tell why it won Temptalia's 2014 Reader's Choice award.

2. Best Eye Catching Red
A bold red is one of my favorite looks, although I tend to retire it in the summer and bring it
back out for the winter. For my birthday, my best friend hooked me up with MAC's Viva Glam Rihanna
lipstick and it is one of the best reds I've ever worn. The blue-toned red meshes perfectly with
my pale skin, and the slight shimmer is stunning. 

3. Best Luxury and Best Drugstore
I really don't own many "luxury" lip products.... I am a drugstore shopper by nature. However,
I do own a couple choice items and my favorite is Dior's Creme de Rose, a heavenly rose-scented
lip balm that is so freakin' decadent. 
As for drugstore, see "best gloss" as my favorite drugstore item overlaps with this. 

4. Best MAC Lipstick
Viva Glam Rihanna could easily count as my pick for best MAC lipstick, but for variety's sake
I picked another of my favorites. My MAC lipstick collection isn't extensive, but out of what
I have, I really love MAC's Well Loved, a gorgeous nude. A nude lipstick that looks good with
my skin tone is really hard to come by, but something about this shade is pure magic. I think it
might have been part of a limited edition collection and therefore is no longer available. (sorry!)

5. The Most Disappointing
While the product itself is not overly disappointing, the color is almost nonexistent on my lips,
and so I have to vote for Mally's Lip Magnifier in Tulip. It literally doesn't show up on my lips.
I got this in a Birchbox so I'm not out anything, but I would certainly pick a different color if 
ever I bought one of these in the future. 

6. Liner - Yes or No?
Rarely do I wear lip liner. I have maybe 3 or 4 different shades, but only find them necessary
when applying a really pigmented lipstick and I want more ease in applying within the lines
and longer wear time. Most of the time, I just don't find them necessary or worth the money. 

7. Best Gloss
I really enjoy lots of lip glosses, but the NYX Butter Glosses are hands down the best glosses
I have ever tried. They are creamy, hydrating, colorful and they smell UH-mazing. I have
a wide range of shades and I aspire to own them all because they're that great. 

8. Something Extra
One of my favorite, hidden drugstore gems is Bonnebell's liplite in Strawberry Parfait.
It's been said it's a dupe for NARS' Turkish Delight. It smells amazing, and layered over
nude lipsticks (such as Well Loved mentioned above) it is like the 8th wonder of the nude
lipstick world. You can apply a million layers and it still looks good. The best part?
It costs just $3.50!

I tag Erin, Jeanette, and Kristin as well as anyone else who would like to participate!


  1. Love a good lipstick tag! I really want to try the dior rose balm but the price always gets to me.

    1. Kate - you should do the tag, too! :) The Dior balm is SO pricey and it sat on my "wish list" for ages until my sweet husband gave it to me for my birthday this year. :)

  2. I love that MAC red lipstick as well, its the perfect shade


  3. Thanks for the tag, Brianna! Loved reading about your favorites. I just posted it on my blog. :)
