Bionic Asks: What’s your favorite lip product?

Bionic Beauty Asks - Makeup and beauty question blog article series

This week’s Bionic Asks Is brought to you by Bionic Bronnie. “What is your favorite lip product and why?”

I have been searching for “The Perfect One”… Lipstain, lip plumper, lip pencil, lipstick, lip gloss?

That lead me to the root of the issue…which works the best? I don’t like products that dry out my lips and I like products that last. I mean really LAST. I don’t want my lipstick to vanish mid-dinner on a romantic evening… or to even worry about it.

So then comes the beginning of my personal solution, I believe it’s a matter of which products are a must in the lip arsenal. I use YBF Quench ($15) about six times a day- to keep my lips healthy, moisturized and hopefully from aging (don’t miss Bionic Beauty’s review of YBF Quench).

Dior Addict High Shine Lipstick in Catwalk Mauve 680Dior Addict High Shine Lipstick Catwalk Mauve - Bionic Bronnie favorite lip product ($26) is the perfect, moisturizing and softening product….I would be lost without it.

Dior Creme De GlossDior Creme De Gloss lip gloss - Bionic Beauty Bronnie favorite lip product ($25.50) is also very nice and has an incredible color selection I love Beige Elixir 611 – it’s gorgeous!.

And then… I tried Estee Lauder’s new Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip DuoEstee Lauder's new Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip Duo - Bionic Beauty favorite lip product ($24, in a huge variety of colors). Wow, that is the icing on the cake! It’s a gorgeous soft stain, highly pigmented. It takes a minute to dry, then the other end is a nice is a shimmery gloss that adds shine; but not quite enough moisture. It makes beautiful edges- no bleeding, so I can skip the pencil liner.

So, I use YBF Quench for healthy lips; I apply Estee Double Wear stain, let it dry and smooth it with one of my aforementioned Dior’s for the perfect color delivery. If I’m not “going out” I may just use Doublewear then top it off with Quench for nice moisture.

There are more products out there than one could possibly test, so please share your best kept lip secrets, finds and magical combinations. Don’t forget to mention your desired outcome. My goal is longevity, high pigmentation, and nice soft moisture.

I couldn’t agree more on the Dior. I treated myself to one last week and love it, definitely pricey, but really, really nice.

Yes, they are sooo nice…but Which Dior did you get? There’s so many!!
I’m just wondering if my search missed anything!

No matter what color or brand, I always start with a layer of Blistex ointment (in the tube). Let it dry down a bit, then apply the color. It keeps your lips feeling and looking moist, especially if you are applying a long wearing lipstick.

I love Alba Botanica coconut cream lip balm…

Nothing more than Aveda Lip Tint in CocoPlum. It keeps my lips perfectly moisturized, and delivers the perfect amount of lip colour. It even looks great as it fades throughout the day!

I love Loreal’s HIP Jelly Balm, it’s hydrating, and gives my lips a nice shine. Also love M.A.C Lipstick in Fresco, it’s a beautiful peach shade, go’s great with just about anything. :)

I’m hooked on Trish McEvoy’s Luxe Moisture Balm — it has vitamin E and shea butter plus SPF 15; I also like Lip Fusion pencil and gloss. Thanks for the tips on the Dior and Lauder lip products; I’m definitely going to try them.

Wow! The response by all of you is fantastic! This is “my reward”…I do review’s, but I love hearing everyone’s choice’s because it give’s Me new idea’s and suggeest’s brands I haven’t tried.

Most Expensive I’ve ever tried, by really pigmented and worth it..Serge Luten’s….$75! eow! But the color truly last’s longer than any!

Right now I have two faves: My Lip Stuff lip balms. These are so awesome! Thanks, Jami, for introducing me to these! My other favorite is 100% Pure lip glosses. These glosses are pigmented with fruit…yes you read correctly. They glide on beautifully and the colors are natural and beautiful. Also you don’t need to worry about anything toxic in these safe lip glosses. They are wonderful!

I love every color in the Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy line. They are really soft flattering colors and the texture is not sticky or drying. SOOO creamy and actually improved my lips texture. HIGHLY recommend anything in that line and not to mention the fantastic price!
