Over the past couple of weeks a number of really exciting lip products have been released and I'm here to share my thoughts on just some of the ones to hit drugstores, department stores and online.
NAIL THE NUDE LIP WITH GEN NUDE

If a nude lip is your thing or even if it isn't, you simply have to check out Bareminerals brand new GEN NUDE range! Comprising of every type of finish you could ever possibly want when it comes to your lips (lip liner, lipgloss, lipstick and matte liquid lipstick), you'll find 40 (yes 4-0!) shades, taking you from the palest of pale shades to beautiful berry hues. I'm such a big fan of the Radiant Lipstick and the Under Over Liner. It's definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone when it comes to trying out lighter shades.
When I first saw Benefit's brand new lip products, the They're Real! Double The Lip launch, I was immediately intrigued. I mean, anything that knocks off a couple of minutes from my makeup routine each morning is a big benefit (I promise that wasn't a pun) to me. So having the convenience of a lip liner and a lipstick in one handy bullet is such a smart idea. There's a fantastic range of colours but this one, Criminally Coral, really stood out to me. I can't wait to try out more of the shades the next time I'm at the Benefit counter.

And who can resist Too Faced's Sweet Peach range? The creamy peach lip oils feel SO good on the lips! They're silky and smooth and every one of them smell absolutely dreamy. And how adorable is the little Peach that sits atop each of the wands? If, like me, you're based in UK, you'll find the whole Sweet Peach range at Debenhams and Selfridges. International readers will find them at Sephora and Ulta, as well as on Too Faced's own website.
OH MY-GOSH LIQUID MATTE LIPS
If you've been reading Ellis Tuesday for a number of years now or if you've had a quick look through my Product Directory, you'll know how much I adore the drugstore beauty brand GOSH. If you've not paid their stand a visit when in Superdrug, you're seriously missing out! Their latest release, the liquid matte lips*, might just be my favourite release from them in a long time and that's really something. The pigmentation is unreal and they feel so comfortable on the lips. These aren't your typical drying matte liquid lipsticks! They also last basically a full day, so around 6-ish hours, as well, which saves me having to worry about any touch ups throughout the day too.
A TOO FACED MELTED LIPSTICKS DUPE FROM L'OREAL
To me, these are great, budget-friendly dupes for the Too Faced melted lipsticks, even if they come with a wand inside them instead. Basically, if you've been lusting after Too Faced's for quite some time now or weren't sure whether or not they were for you, I would definitely urge you to try the L'Oreal's option first. L'Oreal have both normal and matte options out there and a nice range of shades too, with plenty of bold shades which certainly impress as well.
So there's my rundown of the latest lip releases to hit the market.
Which one looks like it could be your favourite? Have you tried any of the products in today's post? If so, what do you think of them? Would you like to see more blog posts like these, where I dedicate it to a specific product? And which beauty releases have impressed you recently?
