My everyday lip favourites

Ted Baker Lip Crayons / Carmex Strawberry flavour
I thought I'd do a little post on my everyday lip favourites and as you can see, the selection is pretty simple! Not that there is anything wrong with keeping it simple. I have to say when it comes to lip products I am ever so picky. I don't like anything that snags on the lips as you put it on and I can't stand matte lipsticks that show up every little imperfection on the lips. At the moment I don't have a huge selection of lip products because I know what I like and what works for me. I am also VERY good at clear outs. I'll get rid of anything that looks awful (like my melted lip butters) or things I don't use. Aside from the lip crayons and balm above I own two Rimmel Apocalips (still deciding whether I actually like them), two Colour Glide lipsticks from The Body Shop, another Carmex lip balm, a Calvin Klein lipstick and a Rockalily lipstick (Pompadour Pink). Try not to gasp in horror at the fact I don't own a Mac lipstick. I'm sure I will one day, but I've just not been in a mad rush to get one.

Anyway...on to why these are my super awesome favourites.

Carmex Lip Balm - Strawberry Flavour
When it comes to lip balm you can't beat a good old tube of Carmex. I've been using it for years and years. I used to buy the pots but I much prefer the tubes because you don't have to get the product all over your finger. This is my go-to lip balm that I use everyday. It makes my lips feel soft and nourished. I'm pretty sure it somehow magically heals them too when they're looking a little chapped. If you haven't tried the strawberry flavour GO OUT AND BUY IT NOW. Seriously. The original flavour is lovely, but this is just divine! James actually randomly picked it up at the counter in Primark for me and I'm so glad he did. It tastes like strawberry sweets which are my all time favourites. You can also buy Carmex in Mint and Cherry, but I haven't tried either of those yet. I think you can buy Carmex at pretty much every Boots, Superdrug, pharmacy, supermarket as well as online at places like Amazon.

Ted Baker Lip Crayons
Now I have already done a review of the Ted Baker Lip Crayons after I received them as a Christmas gift so I won't go into too much detail, as you can just read the post! Basically you got four in a tin and these two have ended up being my everyday lip favourites. They're really wearable colours, one shade is slightly darker and reder (not a word) and the other is more of a purpley (not a word) pink. I couldn't choose a favourite between these two because they go with different makeup looks and outfits. I would say I tend to reach for the darker one slightly more often, which is funny because when I first opened the tin it was the crayon I least liked the look of.

The lip crayons glide on so smoothly and offer good coverage. Like most lip crayons they are somewhere between a tinted balm and a lipstick. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do when I finally finish these (got a long way to go yet as they twist up) as I can't seem to find them anywhere online. I guess I'll have to move onto another lip crayon. It's just a shame the other brands are so much more expensive!

What are your everyday lip products? Are you a Carmex lover too?
