Lippies even a minimalist would love


BEAUTY, Beauty Articles, Featured | by — July 22, 2012

A dear friend of mine once told me that she dislikes wearing lipstick because of how it feels on the lips.

Feels foreign.  Too high maintenance.  Would rather wear clear lip balm instead.

I would have agreed a few years ago, but the latest lippies  are no longer what they used to be.  Feeling inspired,  I set out to sum up the lippies that feel as comfortable as a lip balm, super easy to apply and feels weightless.  No skill or lip brush required, I promise.

Lippies that even a minimalist would approve of.

Here are some of my favourites (I suggest starting with Burts Bees & working your way down the list)

Do you shy away from lipsticks because of their texture? Do you like your lippies to feel weightless?

    You are very right…the recent trend toward pigmented lip balms would convert even the pickiest of lippie wearers. I have always been a fan of Dior Addict lipsticks…You just don’t feel them but yet they impart a lovely tint (more than a tint!) at the same time.

    I’ve got Diorkiss and Blush. For Dior Addict Extreme, I have Avenue and Riviera…Oooo I was recently gifted my long time fave Dior Rouge lippies, Rose Comedy and Mauve Selection…Funny though…I’m not such a fan for their other products…How about you?

      I have Rouge Couture (a tinted cherry red) which was sent by Dior. I would love to buy more, but there’s too many new products I want to buy to add to the swatch library!

    I used to feel the same, and about a few of the MAC finishes, and *especially* mattes.. I want to have a gorgeous matte look but I just can’t rock it

    I used to be like that, too! I didn’t like the feel of lipstick, thank God they came out with these new types of lipsticks. =)))

    May I sugget one more lippie that is like that balm-y type of lipstick? it’s by Clarins, called Joli Rouge Brillant – Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick; they have shimmer, though, but they are sheer, moisturizing and fruity. on the expensive side. 😀
