lovely lips

February is the perfect month to celebrate love, and we’re going to start by dressing your kisser in this month’s colors– pink, red, and sparkles!  I dug around my makeup drawer to share my top picks for lovely lips.

From left to right by row: 

  • Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain in No. 7 Corail Aquatique $36.  I bought my first YSL glossy stain a couple years ago, and I’ve gone through a few since.  I’m not a huge fan of the packaging, but the formula is good and there are a ton of color options.
  • Burberry Kisses Lipstick in No. 17 English Rose $33.  As I’ve mentioned before (seesmokey” post), I love Burberry products and this lipstick is no exception.  Be sure to let the product sit on your lips a couple minutes before you judge it.  As it warms it melts into a creamy smooth texture in the most perfect soft rose color.   consistency.
  • Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain in No. 27 Peche Cerra-Cola $36.
  • Tarte LipSurgence lip gloss in Blushing Bride $19.  (Or it comes as part of a cute little “wedding day essentials” set currently on sale for $39, originally $49.)  The gloss is a bit sticky on the sticky side.  I admit, it’s not my favorite texture-wise, but I love the color and dewy shine.
  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Honey $24.  Kind of pricey for what is in essence a tinted lip balm, but lovely nonetheless.  The texture is great and they smell ah-mazing!
  • Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer in Color 302 $38.  This was one of my Fall/Winter 2015 purchases, and it quickly became a favorite (see it here on the @juniperlemons Instagram!).  It is a wearable orangey-red color with the slightest hint of gold shimmer and awesome staying power.
  • Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Yu (bright pink) $26.  Bold, bright, statement-making color. Yass!
  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Cherry $24.
