Wow! I have been sent lots of wonderful new lip products to try over the last few weeks. So I have tons to review today!
What I’ve noticed in the products I have received is that it seems like a more polished lip is on trend. Lipsticks definitely are in as are lip liners. And many of the glosses I have tried lately are full colored and opaque. I am usually more of a sheer lip lady, but I think I might have to go for a more dramatic look in the fall.
Some of my new favorites are:
Paul and Joe Beaute Natural Lipstick Refill ($20 USD) — This pure texture creates plump, radiant lips with beautiful color and just the right amount of intensity and shine.
Paul and Joe Beaute Lip Liner Duo ($25 USD) — Lip color is twice as nice with this all-in-one pencil, available in five pairs of natural and vivid shades, to create a custom lip color to match any look or mood. Containing smooth-feel oil, the base allows you to draw lines with a light touch while leaving a lasting impression.
What I think: I really love this lip liner duo. It comes in a lighter and darker shade and I have been using both — the lighter when I wear a sheer gloss and darker with a fuller coverage lipstick. The lipstick is gorgeous too! It is very moisturizing and has a bit of a shimmer to it. Love!

Yves Rocher Sheer botanical lipstick Marron Glace ($14.00 USD) — For the first time in a lipstick, Yves Rocher Research has selected Cherry Oil for its extraordinary shine and light refraction power.
Its ultra-sensory texture melts onto the lips and enhances them with a glossy colour that gives you the coverage you want. Available in 12 shades.
What I think: So moisturizing! It is almost like wearing a creamy gloss and I think that is due to the cherry oil. Some of the shades are almost a matte crème and some have a bit of shimmer to them. And they smell really nice, too!

Mally Beauty Lip Magnifier (retails for $20, now $15 for the month of August) — combines luminous color with a creamy, ultra-fierce lip gloss. Its refreshing formula smoothes and hydrates, leaving lips feeling silky and ultra soft. Simply begin by lining your lips with the lip pencil. Once they are completely lined, begin filling in your lips for a long-wear, luscious lip color. Available in 15 different shades!
What I think: I have been using this in Soft Nude, which is a gorgeous neutral. I like it alone, or I can apply lipstick or gloss over it. It has a bit of a pleasant minty taste and is not sticky at all.

This long-wearing and never-sticky formula is enriched with antioxidants of Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. Available in a clear shade to be used alone or over L.I.P Creams to add shine and additional moisture, 3 highly-pigmented matte shades and 2 sparkly shades infused with tiny light reflectors to pump up the volume creating the appearance of fuller richer lips! Glosstone PRO is packaged in a sleek modern square vial and applied with the lip applicator wand. This “shine booster” is sure to become your favorite lip gloss!

Mehron L.I.P Liner Pencils (9.95 USD) are the perfect complement to L.I.P Creams and GLOSSTONES by Mehron, Innovators of Extreme Beauty Makeup. The Mehron chemists have encased a long-lasting creamy makeup in a pencil that enables you to define your lips without bleeding color or feathering. L.I.P Liner Pencils are available in six vibrant accenting colors, including natural, Glacier Pink, Red, Burgundy, Mandarin and Cocoa. These dynamic rich colors will highlight the natural beauty of your lips.
What I think: Mehron makes a lot of theatrical makeup, but they also have a fab beauty line. The products are affordable and work really well. I have been using a gorgeous combo of a new shade of the liner called Sweet — a perfect match for my lip color, a pinky nude — with a Glosstone called Coral Reef. I have been wearing a lot of pink and the coral is an opaque cream that will look gorgeous as a transition color into fall. The liner helps my color from feathering or fading. Win win!
