Tuesday Top Three: Lip Stuff

I am a lipstick girl. 

 Lipstick is such a simple way of looking put together- like you're a polished person who can get things done. Lip stains are GLORIOUS if you want to avoid constant retouching, and obviously lip balms are necessary for LIFE.

I occasionally get cold sores that look like terrible blisters on my upper lip. They're unattractive, painful, and hugely embarrassing. I try to avoid an outbreak at all costs, so I rely on medicated lip balms in conjunction with my lipsticks and stains.

Right now there are three products that I turn to constantly. 

My Current Top Three Favorite Lip Products:

For many years, I was a devoted user of Burt's Bees Clove Oil Lip Balm. It was moisturizing and it helped me keep my occasional cold sore outbreaks in check. They tragically stopped making it a couple of years ago, and when I finally found this little gem I was over the moon. This lip balm smells delightfully herbal, it glides on beautifully, and it's very moisturizing. I keep a tube in my pocket or my bag at all times. 

2. Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Fig
This lipstick is the most perfect neutral shade of pink! On days when I want to look put together but I want to keep the lips toned down, this is my go-to. It's a lovely color but I also love that all Bite Beauty products are made from food grade ingredients. 

3. Sephora Collection Creme Lip Stain in Always Red

This stain is the perfect red and it does. not. quit. 
It's the ultimate Flight Attendant lipstick. No matter what happens during my workday, I know that my lipstick will look flawless from van time to debrief when I've got this on.
