Note: Photos were taken last year, my lip collection has expanded somewhat since. Heh.
Check out Carina’s video for this tag here!
As you can see, I am a huge fan of lip products, which is weird, because I rarely ever touch up my lips and for the longest time, preferred eyeshadows because I didn’t have to deal with them after I was done applying them. But changing your lip colours are just such an easy way to change up an entire look.
1. Favourite balm/treatment?
I rub Vaseline on the lips every night before bed, and prime my lips with a dab of the stuff before I apply my foundation. I wipe off the excess just before I apply any lipstick (unless I intentionally want a muted colour).
Second favourite would be Korres Lip Butter; I used to have Mango, and I still have Wild Rose. They smell and feel wonderful, and they add just the right amount of colour on the lips.

2. Best eye-catching red?
I’ve raved about this product many many times, but I will do so again: Sephora Always Red Lip Cream. This beauty is an intense matte red that just lasts on the lips. Because of how perfectly matte it is, it also looks fantastic with a bit of OCC Triptych (metallic gold shimmer) patted on in the middle.
