FINAL ROUND (4/12 – 4/18): Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Final Round 7 - Lip Oil.jpg

Several well loved lip oils and it's great to see more coming out. My current faves @TeamBIC are Dior Lip Glow Oil (all the shades! 😍), Ami Colé Hydrating Lip Treatment Oil Romance though Ami Colé Hydrating Lip Treatment Oil Smitten will be seeing a lot of use this spring and summer, and Gisou Honey Infused Hydrating Lip Oil Golden Shimmer Glow.  💋

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Love your lip oil collection! I must try the Tinted Ami Colé lip oils soon😍 @itsfi 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

@Buootiful, the tinted lip oils are so good! I've been a huge fan of the Dior lip oils for ages; Romance & Smitten have given the Dior a run for their money. None are limited edition so that's good and Ami Cole puts out a vault set with all their lip oils. They'll be introducing a new shade - a brick red tinted lip oil - next year.

I'm voting Cream Blush this round. 👌😍

Nothing else for a cheek product lasts like they do or shows up and stays put like them either.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Love your cream blush collection 😍 @CynthieLu 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Thank you kindly @Buootiful it's a happy little rainbow lol. 😉🌈

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

@CynthieLu How exciting! I think you will love the PT formula!!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

I haven't got to posting about the duo yet, but I got all my sales hauls. 🎉 @Mellmars1185  First impressions were impressive. And the first time I wore it to work, it was still on my cheeks when I got home 9 hours later. 👌

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

@CynthieLu Such a pretty rainbow!  Any chance of a swatch photo with all the DM shades??? Inquiring minds might be waffling on which shade to test out.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

I'm happy to! @missjeanie 😉😊

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

@CynthieLu Ohhhhhh thank you!!!!  I was debating between Primadonna and It Girl.  I'm instantly loving It Girl, but I think Primadonna might be it.... I don't have shades like her!  It's giving strawberry 🍓

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

We may approach blush buying a little similarly @missjeanie  I like trying colors that fill a whole that was missing in my collection too. 😉

 

It does have a little strawberry vibe. I think my favorite of these is probably Bellini or a light touch of Golden Hour 🧡

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

These are all great @CynthieLu ! Thanks for the swatches. I always had my eye on Rose n Brunch but Golden Hour got me in store this time. I have to use it lightly but it's such a fun shade!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

I love that one too @makeitup305 I also wear it lightly 😉😉 but it gives a beautiful flush.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

I didn’t realize you own 5 Danessa Myricks colors, @CynthieLu. So pretty!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

I love them @curlychiquita they really are pretty blushes.

I  wanted to pick up Danessa Myricks Beauty Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder Flushed - Matte Color for Cheek & Lip Jubilee this sale but I decided to try something new to me and ordered this

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Cream blush for the win!!!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

I mean I choose lip oil because hydration of my lips when I go out is more important to me Dior Lip Glow Oil Raspberry 

Can’t believe lip oil will get the finalist 🤭 I prefer tinted lip balm tho
