Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 2: Brushes vs. Sponges

@CorgiMommy, it's a such a good brush.  It's a stippling brush in disguise.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Obviously tinted lip balm! Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm for Hydration & Shine Vanilla Beige LANEIGE Lip Glowy Balm Berry 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

I personally prefer lip oil. I already love my natural lip colour but sometimes I want some shine. I really like the dior lip oil but it is on the more expensive side. If anyone has cheaper versions of the dior lip oil, I would love to hear recommendations. 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@Jasmig1738 I love Dior lip oils, so hydrating

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@Jasmig1738  A ‘Pieu Honey and Milk is the closest thing I’ve ever come to the consistency and hydration of Dior but it only comes in the honey shade.

iNNBEAUTY PROJECT Glaze Lip Oil Merlot These are pretty darn close.  They’re a little thicker than the Dior but they are equally as hydrating and have fruity flavours.  The tints are more opaque than the Dior but still give that sheer jelly lip. 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@heartsmyface  I love the A'pieu Honey & Milk! 😃

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Definitely Tinted Lip Balm 💓

Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm for Hydration & Shine Vanilla Beige 

Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm for Hydration & Shine Poppy 

Glossier Balm Dotcom Lip Balm and Skin Salve Rose 

 

I do enjoy a good lip oil every so often though!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

The balms by Summer Fridays look good 🤩 @EmmaWilli 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Definitely lip oil for me since I can pair it

with any lipstick and not change the color 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

I realized if this bracket was offered last year I would definitely have voted for lip balm. After I tried various versions of tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Balm that it was both moisturizing and left a nice amount of tint. Other products I enjoy are Hourglass Phantom Volumizing Glossy Lip Balm and LAWLESS Forget The Filler Lip Plumper Line Smoothing Gloss . iNNBEAUTY PROJECT Glaze Lip Oil Piña Colada has my heart ❤️ at the moment.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@Loretta55  I chose lip oil but I do love the maracuja juicy lips!!  I power through those so quickly!  

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

I too am going to vote lip oil for this one! Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil Honesty is one of my go-tos. 🙂

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@GeorginaBT that is a beautiful shade you picked, very classy 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Nice pick! Honesty is a beautiful shade @GeorginaBT and it really is such an easy everyday lip. 😀🤎
