Here are my favorite Lip Products for 2011:
Pencil: Chanel Precision Lip Definer (Nude)
I use this pencil so much… it’s extremely versatile. This pencil is perfect for deepening any given lip color (especially the cool tones that have the potential to go ashy on my warm skin tone), or just cleaning things up. This is a staple for me. I’ve gone through two of these pencils this year… it’s that good.
Moisturizing Lip Stick: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine
I absolutely LOVE this lipstick! Nearly every color is flattering. I’m really impressed by the moisture level, color deposit and staying power of these lipsticks. The formula is so easy to use, you don’t really need a mirror to get the job done. I call them my ‘put on in the dark’ lipsticks. They are simply wonderful.
Matte Lipstick: Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet
These were such a pleasant surprise. I didn’t expect to like these, as I’m not really a fan of matte lipsticks (I’ve found them pretty drying). But this silky formula is such a joy to wear.
Lipstick Pencil (Gloss): NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil
I fell in love with these when they were first released, and continue to love them today. They are simple to use, and really work well under presser. Keeper!
Lipstick Pencil (Matte): NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
Like its glossy counterpart, the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil from NARS is also easy to use. The color saturation on these pencils is unmatched. They have stellar coverage, and can be used as both lip pencils, or a full on lipstick.
Those are my lip favorites for 2011. Ciao for now!
