Sheer Lip Products I Love

If I had $100. . .

Well, I’ve been having a bit of trouble sourcing one of my favorite sheer lip products which made me think it was discontinued. I loved the YSL Slim Sheer Matte Lipsticks all last year, and I see that they are still available at Nordstrom though there are only two shades available at Sephora. They are the perfect amount of color without any shine. It’s not overly hydrating, so you may want to top it with a balm if your lips get dry, but that would take away the “matte” nature of the finish. (I’m wearing 106 in the photo above)

I have a few other “wash of color” lip products that I love wearing so I thought I’d do a little round-up for you here!

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment (really ANY color but Rose and Petal are my favorites) – I’ve loved these for years. They are so easy to wear and I love the metal packaging too. The product lasts a very long time and it’s a sheer but buildable color.

Nars Afterglow Lip Balm (orgasm or fast lane) – the kind of lip balm that adds a youthful glow and wash of color to the lips while deeply hydrating at the same time.

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick (in 44 or 150) – best tasting/smelling lip product ever.

Almay Tint & Treat Oil-in-Stick – this is on my shortlist to try! It comes HIGHLY reviewed! Rosy Glaze or Cake Walk look like the prettiest pinks!

Hi! Have you ever tried the glossier generation g lipsticks? They’re amazing if you like sheer and matte-ish.

Love the sugar lip treatments! I got the red one on your recommendation and it’s great for someone like me that is a little scared of red lipstick.
