My Favorite 5 – Lip Edition

Hola! Today is the last post in this series. I’ve had so much fun writing these ‘favorite 5’ posts and I’ve loved reading all your comments about products you love. I hope you’ve enjoyed it and thank you so much for playing along with me. If you liked this series, leave a comment letting me know and maybe I can do another similar series in a few weeks…

But in the meantime, today’s favorite 5 is all about lip products I love and there’s one final giveaway, so read on, girls! 💄💋

Lip Renewing Serum by Rodan + Fields

The Best Lip Serum

I want to preface this product by stating that I am not a consultant for Rodan + Fields, so I’m not selling you anything with this product – this is an unbiased review. 🙂 I’ve tried several of the Rodan + Fields products, but this lip serum is by far my favorite. The product comes in these tiny little capsules and I apply it at night right before bed. I usually try to make 1 capsule last me 2 nights because I’m cheap like that and because I find half the capsule still works great for me. It makes my lips feel like silk and it is supposed to be rich with antioxidants that help prevent wrinkles and I definitely think it keeps my lips smoother. I also find my lipstick applies better when I’m using this consistently. Love! I’m actually currently out of this product and I’m seriously missing it.

Prep + Prime by Mac

Prep + Prime Lip

Speaking of lipstick, I hate putting on lipstick without putting on Prep + Prime by Mac first. I started using this product several months ago and I don’t think I’ll ever go without it again. One tube has lasted me a long time and I find it makes a big difference in the application of my lipstick because this lip base allows the lipstick to glide on without looking blotchy. Does that make sense? If you wear a lot of lipstick (especially matte style), I highly recommend this to prevent your lipstick from flaking.

Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy by Fresh

Fresh Lip Therapy

I adore this sugar lip treatment by Fresh. I’ve purchased this product a few times and I’m currently out of it and I find myself still looking for it in my make-up bag out of habit and I miss it during the afternoons when I just want to swipe something on for that hydrated, soft feeling on my lips. This product seriously saved me during the winters in NYC when my lips would get SO dry and even though the price is a bit steep for chapstick, I can’t not list it because it is one of my favorites.

Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 by Jack Black

SPF for Lips

If the Sugar Lip Treatment is my must-have lip product for winter, then I would label this Intense Therapy Lip Balm my must have for summer. I love that it has SPF 25 in it and I usually put it on before I run because I love the smell (I buy the natural mint & shea butter) and I like knowing I have the added SPF protection on my mouth. It stays on great and leaves my lips feeling very moisturized. It is only $7.50 and I would say if you weren’t wanting to invest into the R+F overnight lip treatment, then this would be my 2nd runner up because the consistency of this lip product reminds me of the R+F product.

Lip Maximizer by Dior

Dior Lip Maximizer

I know I just wrote about the Lip Maximizer by Dior in this post, but I had to share it one more time because it is my current favorite lip gloss. I love the scent (I think it may be vanilla?) and I love how it kind of tingles when it goes on (I think that may be due to the collagen in it?). I use it over my lipstick and I love the added shine it gives. I’m not sure if it really makes my lips fuller, but I do love how shiny it makes my lips without being too sticky.

…And 1 More…

Rose Salve Lip Balm

I know this is only supposed to be a list of 5, but I want to add this rose salve lip balm to the list because I picked it up on a whim during the #nsale 2 weeks ago and I LOVE it. It makes my lips so soft. The only downside is I have to apply it with my finger, which I sort of hate doing with lip balms…but this is worth it. You can get a 3 pack right now for $11 at Nordstroms, so it is a great price point for a great product! I give it 2 thumbs up! 🙂


Today I’m giving away the Lip Maximizer by Dior AND a 3 pack of the rose salve lip balm I mentioned above (so you can share with your girlfriends, or keep it to yourself if sharing ain’t yo thang) to 1 lucky reader!
