The Handbag Residents

I've been mentioning it nonstop in most of my blog posts, but I'm going to repeat myself - I've been having some kind of lip allergy and it's super annoying. Because of this, I've changed from wearing matte lipsticks (liquid and traditional) to sheerer more moisturizing lip products. Instead of being sensible, I've stashed away 5 of my favorites into my bag. 

A part of me thinks it's crazy that I've spent so much on really expensive and sheer lip products, but they all work so well and my non-sensitive lips don't react to them. 

Even though it's pretty expensive for a non-colored lip balm, I've been using the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask to help keep my lips moisturized. It is a bit glossy for my taste for just a non-colored lip product, but it goes its job so I ignore the gloss. I've heard criticisms about the thickness of this product, but my constantly parched lips love the texture because I don't have to constantly reapply it. 

L to R -
Dior Addict Lip Glow in Pink
YSL Volupte Tint-In-Oil in 5 Cherry My Cherie
MAC Cosmetics Tendertalk Lip Balm in Pretty Me Up
YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm Crystal Color in 13 Griotte Mocha

I've sung such high praises for the Dior Addict Lip Glow in Pink that I won't go on too much, but it's a thick lip balm that turns my lips into a gorgeous healthy pink color. If I forget the Bite Agave Lip Mask, I tend to just favor the Lip Glow for all of my needs. The MAC Tendertalk Lip Balm in Pretty Me Up has a similar color changing concept that is also great and moisturizing, but it's not as thick. If you don't have super dry lips, the Tendertalk Lip Balms would be a great dupe for the Dior Addict Lip Glows. 

The YSL Volupte Tint-In-Oil in 5 Cherry My Cherie is surprisingly not a cherry color on me. It actually turns more fuchsia and darker over time on my lips. It's not my favorite lip oil tint, but it fades the best throughout the day. It's one of the intentionally glossy products I own as well and so I like wearing this when my lips are looking really wrinkly to smooth out any lines.

The last and most recent expensive balm product I bought is the YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm Crystal Color in 13 Griotte Mocha. I was getting into brown lipsticks and this seemed like a great starter lip product to see if the coloring would match me. I've really been loving it, but I do wish it was more moisturizing like the Dior Addict Lip Glow.

What's your favorite lip product? What lip products are currently residing in your handbag?
