Lip Products Wishlist

I've been really getting into lip products as of late, so I thought I'd share with you some of the lip products that have really caught my attention, so much to the point that I will be purchasing them at the right time (read: on a sad day, on impulse). I categorized them according to shade just to make things more interesting. Hopefully you'll be seeing 2 or 3 of these in future blog posts!

And yes, I just noticed that I mentioned only three brands in this post. Whoops?

I have a weakness for reds. :( In looking at a new lipstick collection, my eyes will always gravitate to red first. I'm not sure why that is, but red just seems timeless to me. I have mostly reds in my current collection and I don't think it's going to stop there. For a sheer tomato red, I've been eyeing (and shamelessly swatching at counters) MAC Ladybug. It'd be great for days when I want to wear red but don't want the hassle that comes with it.  I also want more matte reds because it looks so classy and elegant, so popular drugstore reds such as the Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte by Kate in 107 and 111 would be great to add to my collection (which I hope to get this autumn).

I struggle with pinks and nudes, because majority of the most recommended shades are either too loud for me or do not suit my warm skin tone at all. I do know that I want to try the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob, which is a really pretty warm rosy pink that I could use on its own or under a nude lipstick like MAC Hug Me, which is a flesh pink and probably as nude as I would go, which isn't much. Since I started searching for more S/S appropriate lip colours, I came across MAC Lustering and fell in love with how brightening it is without being too Barbie pink or hot pink. 

Plums and mauves were colours I thought would never work on my skin tone, so when I discovered MAC Plumful, I was definitely skeptical. It wasn't until Jen from From Head to Toe mentioned it in her favourites video that I was sold. We have relatively the same skin tone, so whatever works on her usually works on me. MAC Soar is interesting because its something I'm fascinated with because of the hype, but I've never actually seen it in real life. I've asked a few MAC stores locally and they can't decide if they don't carry it in the Philippines, or if its out of stock. It seems like a versatile colour so as soon as I see it, I'm going to buy it and test it out!

As for an MLBB (my lips but better), I haven't found anything that I wanted more than the Chanel Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle. I've been pining for this lipstick for years (since I was a freshman in uni I think?) and to hear that they recently reformulated the Rouge Coco's just makes me more excited. Maybe I'll get this for myself when I graduate next year! It's either this or the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette, but that's a different story!

That's it for my wish list for now! What about you guys? Are there any lip products that you've been eyeing lately? Have you tried anything on my wish list? Feel free to leave a comment down below!
