Valentine's Day Kissable Lips

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought I'd share with you all some of my favourite go to lip products for kissable looking lips. So sport your best bold lip and get ready to pucker up...

Anti-chapped lips

Thanks to the joys of winter my lips tend to be chapped more days than none, so this is where the Lush The Kiss lip scrub comes in. I really love Lush scrubs as they are a great day to remove chapped skin from your lips instantly, while they may feel a little sore they will definitely leave your lips looking and feeling softer. 

Prepping Lips

So the perfect way to soothe those sore lips? Kiss those chapped/sore lips goodbye with a good lip balm. A couple of my favourites have to be Bomb Cosmetics Kissable Lip Treatment* and Lip Smackers Scrumptious Collection*. The Bomb Lip Treatment is a great lip treatment which is perfect for hydrating the lips over night, not only does this balm smell delicious but it's very moisturising on the lips. For daily use I love my Lip Smackers, I have yet to come across a bad flavour and they quickly nourish my lips ready for lipstick application - the trick is to apply after moisturiser and when your makeup is complete these will have sunk into your lips.

Red Lip

Sporting a red lip is the perfect classical choice for Valentine's Day, my top go to shades have to be the blogger favourite Rimmel' Lasting Finish Kate Moss lipstick in 107 and Maybelline's Color Drama in Light It Up. Neither shade falls into a glossy red so it's always handy to make sure your lips are prepped and ready to go. 

Now I don't know about you but I find red a bloody hard colour to wear, because it can sometimes be prone to bleeding - which let's be honest is never a good look. So to stop this happening I find that having a good quality lip liner helps prevent bleeding, and my pick has to be in the form of MAC's Ruby Woo lip liner which I got in their limited edition lip bag over Christmas (may I just add the whole set is amazing!)

If I do want a hint of gloss my go to red lipgloss comes in the form of MAC Viva Glam's Rihanna Lipglass. I think this was my first ever red gloss purchase, and I love that it has small chunks of blue toned glitter which makes this a really wearable shade, and looks amazing either on its own or teamed with a statement red.

Keep your lips sealed

Lastly if you are sporting red and need it stay on all day Lipcote is the perfect accessory to keep in your makeup bag. Once applied Lipcote seals your lipstick, locking in the colour which makes it perfect if you will be getting a Valentine's kiss. It can be a little weird to apply, especially your first time using it but if great for keeping your lipstick intact for hours.

What's your trick for Kissable lips this Valentines?
