At any given time I have at least four lip products in my bag. These range from lip balms to lipsticks. And I know I am not alone in this. A recurring topic of discussion at the office is what lip color we should go for that day or wear to an event. With the many options we are faced with, we bring them all because we just never know how we’re going to feel that day. Listed below are the different lip products women hoard in their bag. Ladies, go through yours and see if you have these too. If we missed anything, let us know in the comments section below.
Before applying any product like a gloss or lipstick, it is best to prep your lips first. This Prep + Prime Lip from Mac is a colorless base that also adds moisture to the skin. It also smooths the lips, making it easier to swipe on your go-to lip shade. Available at SM Aura Premier.
Another item women carry in their bags is a lip balm. Just like moisturizing your face, you should always keep your pout from getting dry. This one from Maybelline is medicated so it will renew the texture of your lips. It will also lock in moisture for 12 hours. Available at SM Makati.
In case your lips do get dry and chapped, reach for a lip scrub before anything else. Instead of throwing your favorite pot of lip scrub in your bag, opt for one in a tube. This one from Dior Addict is an exfoliating stick infused with grains of sugar. Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source.
A gloss option is also good to keep in your bag. These lip glosses from Hourglass add a multi-dimensional shine and have a creamy texture. Pick from their 16 shades like coral, gold, plum, and pink hues. Available on Sephora PH.
If you want to keep your lipstick clean and precise, keep a lip pencil with you too. These Lip Contour pencils from Huda Beauty have intense color and a matte finish. Aside from lining your lips, you can use them as an all over shade or to add dimension. Available on Calyxta.
Matte liquid lipsticks have been the go-to product for most women lately. Blk’s version has a comfortable texture and is infused with rose hip seed oil and vitamin E. It is a hydrating matte product that comes in five shades that range from red to nude. Available online.
A regular lipstick tube is definitely a must-have for every woman’s bag. They come in multiple colors and have different finished from sheer to matte. These lip colors from Bobbi Brown are creamy and moisturizing, and have eye catching colors. Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source.
