Nuxe Reve De Miel. It saved my lips this past winter, after they had begun to peel horrifically. I received it as a gift so technically it wasn’t my splurge at the time, but since I’m going to repurchase it it will be!

Charlotte Tilbury. Her KISSING lipsticks are just my perfect formula. Balmy, creamy, amazing pigmentation. They just feel so good to wear.

I have two and I miss wearing them daily. But I also agree with you, the Rouge G’s are fun! Very luxe and the E X P E R I E N C E of taking one of those heavy bullets out of my purse is ugh, so good. It makes me feel very old Hollywood.

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick. I think it’s discontinued now and I was able to get a backup of the shade I love so much – Fuchsia in the Know – before it was gone, gone, gone….

I love so many … YSL Rouge Couture , Shiseido Rouge Rouge
( discontinued) 😔 …Guerlain Rouge G ..the refillable cases are beautiful and I do miss some of the original full coverage formulas.. there are some others Estee Lauder Sculpting Lipsticks that I haven’t worn for a while and Givenchy Le Rouge. So many lipsticks …so little time ..

Oh gosh, yes. It’s been so long that I’d almost forgotten about them. They were there one day and, basically, gone the next and it’s so sad as there were several shades I just loved.

I so wanted to get Kale, but they didn’t ship internationally then, I do think they do now though, very annoying. I had a lot of the Amuse Bouche lipsticks on my wish list, but Kale was my most wanted, I have a hard time pulling green lips off, but I think Kale would have worked. Besides it was a gorgeous colour and I want a dress in that exact green.

I also love the Guerlain Rouge G, but the Marc Jacobs Nude Lip Gels were quite possibly my favorite formula ever made. I go Friday to Bite Lab, but that’s more for birthday fun, but I hope I like them 🙂

I have extremely reactive lips and am always looking for new formulas free of fragrance or flavor bc the formulas I’m actually able to enjoy constantly get discontinued (like PMG Luxetrance and Shiseido Rouge Rouge). Luckily, Nars Audacious and Shiseido Visionairy Gel lipsticks are non-reactive on me (though the latter formula can be a bit drying).

As much as I hate to admit it, Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk… The actual formula is okay, nothing special, but the shade is definitely one I can see myself working through.

Chanel Mademoiselle. It’s almost twice as expensive as my next expensive lipsticks but it is so versatile and flattering that it was worth it to me. It’s the lipstick I wear most during Zoom meetings because most of my others look too dark or too red on videos.

I do love my Guerlain Rouge G lipstick also my Louboutin is just a beautiful hint of raspberry, tints my lips perfectly and feels so lush.

Give me Uoma lippies any and every day 💄 and Juvia’s Place lippies, lipglosses and my other fave whether ya hate him or not, JSC lippies are undeniably quality stuff.

The bite lip lab. I did it online and can’t wait to do it in person! Being able to resurrect long lost favorite shades like Colourpop Prim and Benefit good to go plus a nice formula was great.

I’m a fan of Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks-I have 4 Hot Lips 2 shades (Red Hot Susan, Patsy Red, Amazing Amal, and Viva la Vergara), 4 Hot Lips shades (Secret Salma, Liv It Up, Electric Poppy, and Sexy Sienna), and Velvet Underground.

I was looking for a sheer, buildable lip color that was like watercolor paint and found my holy grail in the YSL water stain. It’s that one product that I actually get excited to wear each time.

Mine is the Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Amplified lipstick in RD 163. I am from Asia, so this was something I can put my hands on. This is my “red”. I can’t find anything bad about this lippie. It’s performance is definitely worth the price.

What’s good with the brand’s lipstick is that the shades are available in different finishes!

PMG LuxeTrance! Lol. I know it was axed, but man it’s soooo good!! My only bummer is that I never did find the “perfect” shade for me, nude-wise, but Strange? C’mon, glorious frickin red. I really want a Guerlain Rouge G in a fancy case, but I haven’t yet seen a color that really speaks to me. As I get older my color palette for lips has gotten so narrow it’s tough to find shades that fit.

CT Matte Revolution, I have some 7 or 8 of them, also Lisa Eldrigde Velvet Jazz and Velvet Ribbon, they are a bit more drying then the CT ones, unfortunately.

I love tons of inexpensive lip balms (my go-to never fail is Aquaphor, and I have plenty of Burt’s Bees, EOS, etc.) but for the entire sensory experience, I love the Fresh Rose Petal-Soft Deep Hydration lip balm. I normally don’t even like floral scents in my lip products (especially rose or lavender) but I love it here – it just feel like a luxurious last step in my evening skin care routine. I know there’s more expensive out there, but compared to getting a 14 ounce jar of Aquaphor for $13, it’s definitely a splurge.

Besame lipsticks, especially Victory Red. It’s the only one I ever want to wear–I don’t even bother buying non-Besame lipsticks anymore.
