Lipstick Diaries: Update

Hi again! As you may remember, I set out to explore my ever growing stash of lip products. It's almost May now, and I've hardly made progress. (Check out my original post, and my post about lip care) A few of my favorites:

  • La Mer the Lip Balm - this has now become a staple in my collection, and I product I use the most. This has done wonders for my lips, especially with the back and forth weather we're experiencing here in Chicago!
  • Fresh Sugar Coral Lip Treatment - I was excited when this color was released, and I'm a big fan of the Fresh Sugar scent. The shade is quite pretty, and doesn't make me feel strange when I apply it without any makeup on!
  • Nars Velvet Gloss Pencil in Mexican Rose - I had a brief obsession with this pencil around the time it came out, and absolutely love the stain it leaves on my lips for daytime wear. Strangely enough, I may like the 2nd day stain MORE than the gorgeous glossy pink-red it is when I first apply it. (It may just be that perfect berry stain shade I've been lusting after forever!)

I also picked up a YSL Glossy Stain which has such a marvelous formula, and a Guerlain Rouge Automatique for everyday pretty recently... And I rediscovered another Nars Velvet Gloss Pencil in a quite pretty everyday shade that my boyfriend loves... but haven't had much occasion to wear any of these! I guess sometimes I feel like putting on a lip color without any other makeup is just unfinished and strange for me. Do you ever feel this way??

What are your favorite lip products? Any everyday go to's even if you don't wear any other makeup? I'd love to hear!
