Fave Lip Products of 2012!!!

let's take a break from reviewing all this beauty bag subscriptions and let me share you my best lip products *or some call "lippies" of 2012!!!
I have never been this excited to have accumulated so many lip glosses, lip stains, lip balms, lipsticks and everything else in between this year. I have never really been this obsessed with what I wear on my lips until this year!
Plus, when I get lazy and don't really want to spend...a really long time! doing my whole face I just grab my tinted lip balm or put on one of my lip stain on, just powder my face and conceal any blemishes and I'm out of the door in five minutes!
*If you click on the name for each product it will take you to their official website and you can get more info there, instead of me trying to explain to you all that stuff.
Ok enough intro and let's start the list! In no particular order and categories since I am no pro with what the different types and kinds of lip products are out there, here is MY FAVE LIP PRODUCTS OF 2012:

1- Fresh Sugar Lip Balms

      Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy: Got a sample size of this from an even they had during this summer and my lips love this balm! Especially after wearing heavy lipstick on all day, scrub it off then put this on and my lips feels very moisturized and no dryness or chappy lips the next day!

      Sugar Rose Tint: This year Sephora gave out the Sugar Lip Balm and this one on your Birthday month. Very moisturizing and has a very slight tint on my lips.
     Sugar Berry Lip Tint: Purchased this during Spa Week because of the deep plum tint it leaves on my lips! It looks great with my tanned skin and keeps my lips hydrated during this cold weather.

2- Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter: These are very hydrating, very pigmented and has awesome color choices! These are great during the winter months also. Only con is it's not long lasting, you do need to retouch after eating and drinking, and so for my next favorite is the. . .

3- Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm StainI love how it leaves a nice stain on my lips all day, I really don't need to touch up that many times! It is not drying either but it is not moisturizing enough for me during the winter season. I would layer a lip gloss over it or the Lip Butter and I'd be fine. Color is pretty pigmented and leaves a little minty feel on your lips after you put it on. Revlon really hit a home run with this product because I would stock up *a lot! on these if they would ever stop making them!

4- L'oreal Colour Caresse by Colour Riche: This may look like a lipstick but it feels like a lip balm on my lips! As like my other faves I can never get enough of moisturizing lip products and this one is one of it! They have a very limited color choices from this line but Silky Java is my go-to color for doing a nude lip look *layering this over the Creme Brulee Lip Butter. Again it is not long lasting so it is something you need to touch up a few times in the day, but I wouldn't mind pulling this out of my purse since this has a really nice gold packaging with a strip of the lip color inside.

5- Maybelline Baby Lips: in Cherry gives me that red lips as if I just ate one of those cherry Popsicle. I use this mostly in the summer since it is not hydrating enough for me during the winter days. I don't put this as often as I thought since it has a very long lasting moisture on my lips not like other lip balms I have tried.

6- Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balmin Hibiscus is my perfect match! Not only it keeps my lips moisturized, it also leaves a nice tint to my lips. I have dark pigmented lips so I always go for the darker tinted lip products and this one gives me a nice just right deep red color I need when everything else in my face is neutral.

7- bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Glossin Daredevil was one of the sample sized products I received in my November Ipsy bag and I love it! This has a dark red tint to it which I love. This leaves a nice minty tingling sensation on your lips and it feels nice when the cold air blows on my face! This has no tacky feel to it at all and helps to keep my lips hydrated in the winter, so this is definitely a winter lip product I would be using a lot this next three months!

8- NYX Mega Lip Shine Lip GlossDefinitely another product I would love to collect all the colors! I call this my liquid lip balm since it goes on so smooth with no tacky feel to it at all! I love using this on top of my lipsticks that gets my lips chappy afterwards. You get a lot for what you pay for with this product, actually with this brand overall! No need for me to be splurging on high end lip glosses to get that perfect shine since this one covers that!

Oh my gosh, that summed up my favorite "lippies" of 2012! I have never really collected that much lip products before but most of this drugstore brands turned up the notch and released a lot of really good lip products this year! win-win!!! I'm sure it will just get better in 2013 and I can't wait to see what they have up in their sleeves!

What's on your list for 2012? I'd love to know and see if I missed any lip products out there that I should have in my collection.
