READ MY LIPS

THERE ARE YOUR REG­U­LAR EV­ERY­DAY LIP PROD­UCTS AND THEN THERE ARE THESE NEW IN­VEN­TIONS THAT MAKE PUTTING YOUR LIP­STICK ON THAT MUCH MORE IN­TER­EST­ING!

Female (Malaysia) - - BEAUTY PICKS -

“The orig­i­nal Stunna Lip Paint in Un­cen­sored, a bright uni­ver­sal red, made waves when it first launched due to its high-im­pact colour pay-off, low-main­te­nance wear and pre­cise wand ap­pli­ca­tion (and TBH, Ri­hanna just slays at any­thing she does and we al­ways want in on it) so we were left won­der­ing if she’d ever launch more. Alas, the day has ar­rived and now there are four new shades to play with! Since I’m tak­ing this year to try new looks, I’ve picked the shade Un­in­vited, a show-stop­ping smooth black that looks re­ally in­tim­i­dat­ing at first swipe. How­ever, de­spite it be­ing such a rich colour, I love that it hardly trans­fers or bleeds so I can main­tain my badass per­sona all day long. Es­sen­tial tip: make sure you scrub your lips be­fore ap­ply­ing this on as the dark colour will en­hance dry and cracked ar­eas.”

“As with many beauty trends, lip pow­ders started from South Ko­rea too. Look­ing just like eye­shad­ows, these de­liver high-im­pact colour when re­act­ing with the nat­u­ral oils on your lips and trans­form into a matte fin­ish with a slight metal­lic sheen. You may be won­der­ing if pow­der would feel weird on your puck­ers but trust me, its vel­vety tex­ture is weight­less and feels so comfy, you won’t even re­mem­ber hav­ing any­thing on! Plus, the pan comes with a mois­tur­is­ing base balm on the right to prep your lips with. What’s fun about this is that you can choose to use a sin­gle colour on its own or layer all three for a cus­tom fin­ish!”

“As many women would agree, you can never have too many lip balms. Per­son­ally, I've got one that I use at home, one for the of­fice, an­other at my in-laws' and a dif­fer­ent one at my par­ents’! Now, this one’s rather unique – it gives you the same con­di­tion­ing pay-off as any good lip balm would, but the cen­tre of the bul­let con­tains a black balm in the shape of a heart that has a spe­cial for­mula to en­hance your lip shape. Packed with nat­u­ral pep­per­mint oil that feels cool on the lips, capri­lyl gly­col to stim­u­late them and make them look fuller, and black pearl pow­der to el­e­vate shine, you’ll see a more vo­lu­mi­nous pout in­stantly. If you’ve al­ways re­lied on tingly lip en­hancers, it’s time to say bye to ’em!”

I’ve tried some of the best lip­sticks out there but 2019 brings the hope of bet­ter lip prod­ucts and I’ve found my three favourites so far. Here’s wish­ing for more lip good­ies this year!
