Lip Product Addict Tag

Here's a fun post created by YouTubers Essie Button and Amelia Liana. I'm no where near the lipstick whore status of my mainest Janelle but honestly I do have more than a normal woman should. Who cares about being normal anyways? For many of these categories I had to mention two products. I know, I know, how terrible.

Favourite balm/treatment: A+D Ointment (Original)

This made my Top Ten for 2013 and still has Holy Grail status to me. No matter what new lip balms I try and love; I always return to this to soothe chapped, rashed or excessively dry lips. It works great on new tattoos as well.

Best eye-catching red: M.A.C 'RiRi Woo' and 'Deeply Adored'

I honestly couldn't decide. 'Deeply Adored' makes me feel very old Hollywood and 'RiRi Woo' is just poppin. This is the one category that may be subject to change because I have some red lippies from Tom Ford, Smashbox and Sephora that I'm yet to give a fair shake.

Best luxury & best drugstore: YSL Rouge Volupte Shine #19 and Tom Ford 'Paradiso'; NYX Black Label 'Sand' and the Rimmel ShowOff/Apocalips lip lacquers

Best M.A.C lipstick: 'Creme In Your Coffee' and 'Candy Yum-Yum'

Special shout out to Heidi on that yummy goodness. I had heard so much hype about that pink but just figured it would look terrible on me. Lo and behold!

The most disappointing: L'Oreal Extraordinaires by Colour Riche

Liner - yes or no? Hell yes!

I'm a huge fan of the liner-plus-gloss instead of lipstick option.

Best gloss: NYX Butter Glosses

Something extra: three lipstick formulas you NEED to try - Ardency Inn, Too Faced La Creme and Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.

Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

#Anti-Haul | My Brand Blacklist

In keeping with the Brand Awareness series, I was planning to do a Beauty Brands Drama series and discuss just that. The idea was scrapped cause really, I like to laugh and ting at dem tings but they don't truly matter in the grand scheme of life. What does matter though is that we be smart consumers. Let's not fall into mob mentality - whether for or against. Let's spend our money wisely and less susceptible to marketing ploys.

By all means, spend your money how you want. Like whichever brand you choose. Rep whomever influencer you "love". This is just my 10¢.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics

I bought one of his liquid lipsticks; I wore it once and then I threw it away (I didn't like the scent). Yuh see, I actually believe that this man is just an entertainer. He likes to say things for shock value. He likes the limelight...loves the attention. What he actually believes? I don't know if we'll ever really know. What I know fuh sure though is that he ain't tu…
