What Are You Wearing on Your Lips RIGHT NOW?

By Beaut.ie | March 13 2012 | 81 Comments


Me? I cannot get enough of Force of Love lipstick, €17.50, from the current Chen Man collection for Mac. Very similar to Viva Glam Nicki, this almost-neon is a matte, and where VG Nicki is a satin that’s amped up to 11 on the Spinal Tapometer, this is around about 9.5, so it’s just that bit easier to wear. Yeah, it’s a bit drying, but I just keep reaching for it. It’s brightening, enlivening and I love, love, love loud lipstick.

So, that’s what I’m wearing on my lips right now. You? What have you discovered you truly, madly, deeply cannot part your pucker from? TO THE COMMENTS!

    Pretty colour on you!

    I’m mostly wearing Ilia Beauty lip conditioner in Blossom Lady. Expecting some more colours from the line this week so will have to do a post on them sometime soon.

    How boring….. Aldi Lacura lip balm!!!! Beats Vasoline any day!

  • BackToBlonde says:

    Wearing my HG combo – MAC Honey Love and MAC Lustreglass in Love Nectar. Would love to be able to wear something brighter but as soon as I do, both husband and mother comment that they are not used to seeing me in something ‘so different’ and they both prefer my more neutral shades! Anyone else have that problem!?!

    YSL Glossy Stain in No 15 – really nice pinky tone to it. Great for everyday use and I keep the deeper red and dark pinks for nighttime!

    I blame you Kirstie for my growing collection of YSL lippies and glosses! – in a good way though :)

  • LauraLou says:

    I have MAC Syrup & Creme de nude on with Fresh Air lipglass over it :)

    Love the colour on you. Had my eye on it in town the other day.

    Wonderful simple Carmex.

  • Kirstie says:

    le Smurf – I do love a YSL lip product, it’s true. And it is a fairly benign addiction!

  • Kirstie says:

    actually that’s what I was wearing when I wrote the post. Right at this very second I am working from home today so am on the couch in my PJs wearing absolutely nothing on my lips. BLOGGERZ R SUCH LIARZ!

  • MilkyMoo says:

    Speaking of loud lipsticks, I bought the limited edition MAC Watch Me Simmer from the Shop Cook collection – its an amplified formula and a gorgeous BRIGHT coral. So I got home and put it on, and realised I had 2 or 3 in almost the same shade. I might Swap Siopa it…

    The Handmade Soap Company rosehip lip balm

    I’m actually wearing Barbara Daly’s ‘Rose’ lipstick, it’s a rosey brown-ish colour, I have a thing for wines and browns lately, very 1990’s :).

    Love your lisptick Kirstie, and the rest of your makeup there compliments the gorgeous shade! x

  • sweetie says:

    I’m all about Rosebud Salve today. how boring of me :)

  • I’m vibing on the neons and nudes trend today. Sporting MAC’s Vegas Volt lippie with Illamasqua Torture lipgloss on top – *loving it! :)

  • daiseeboo says:

    Oh no, that colour is so pretty Kirstie that now I want to buy it, but I’m on a make up ban (self imposed) at the moment. :'(

    I’m currently rotating between Bobbi Brown Coral Pink, Revlon Fire & Ice and NYC Blue Rose.

    BacktoBlonde – I have only recently started to wear bright colours and it has taken me a while to get used to them on so stick with them and don’t mind what other people say. I love them now, and while I still wear a neutral colour most days I do like a bright colour at weekends or for evenings.

  • daisydaisy says:

    I’m wearing a Shiseido lip gloss that i got for a pressie…love it, not sticky and lasts!!!

  • Tara says:

    Zovirax :(

  • CiB says:

    I’m wearing a nudey/similiar to my own lips shade from Rimmel. I sorted through lipsticks at the weekend and I’m determined to start wearing them rather than just buying them! Meant to wear Mac chatterbox today but forgot to bring it with me. Most lipstick, even very moisturising ones, make my lips dry or look weird so I often leave them out of my daily routine.

    BacktoBlonde, snap! Himself actually said last night that he didn’t like a shade I’ve worn a few times recently as it looked ‘dark and weird’! It was a light layer of Mac Plumful! Comments like this make me concious when wearing lipstick.

  • dublinista says:

    A coloured lip balm I made myself (in the microwave) out of a few tablespoons of a beeswax balm, an old Mac lipstick and a few drops of cinnamon oil. I’m very pleased with it!!

  • Harto says:

    MAC Plumful for me today! There was a recent post on it…

  • Aifs says:

    Kirstie that colour is so pretty on you.

    I am wearing L’Oreal Colour Riche balm in Plush Plum. It’s sheer but it feels nice and glossy. I usually alternate between that and one of my Revlon Lip Butters for work.
