Best of 2016 | Lip Product Favorites

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided but this is not a sponsored post.Best of 2016 | Lip Product Favorites If you are a regular reader then you know I swatch a ton of lip products on The Happy Sloths. In fact, I swatched over 287 lip products on the blog in 2016! So as you can imagine, I had to do a separate favorites list for my top lip product picks for the year. So to see what made the cut, click......
Best of 2016 | Lip Product Favorites
Lip Balm | Lip Tints | Lip Oils:
1. Lancome Juicy Shaker Lip Oil in "151 Cherry Symphony": With what may have easily ended up being a gimmicky toss-away, Lancome made me fall head-over-heels for this strange little martini-shaker lip oil. The applicator is fun and innovative and the formulation is light and nourishing. "151 Cherry Symphony", in particular, has been a favorite of mine thanks to it's lightly tinted formulation.
2. Jack Black Moisture Therapy Lip Balm: I don't know how I've only discovered Jack Black in 2016 but one thing is for sure- this is the most moisturizing and long-lasting lip balm I've tried and I'm sticking with it!
3. Dior Lip Glow in "005 Lilac": This is a tinted lip balm that provides the lips with a lovely hue while sealing in the moisture. The product is not one-of-a-kind as there are quite a few similar products on the market but Dior kills it with the classy and luxurious packaging.
4. THEFACESHOP Tint in Oil: I rarely wear glossy lip products but these lip oils from THEFACESHOP are amazing! They leave the lips with a non-tacky shine while leaving behind a super long-lasting tint.

Neutrals:
1. Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick in "C211": In 2016, the nude lips trend shifted from the deathly pale beiges to a much more flattering rose brown and I for one couldn't be happier. "C11" is a great example of this shift as it is a rich neutral rose brown that's super creamy and nicely pigmented.
2. Shiseido Rouge Rouge in "Rose Crush": Despite having a rather silly name, Shiseido's Rouge Rouge collection was a huge hit for me. The shade "Rose Crush", in particular, is unbelievably beautiful and easy-to-wear.
3. Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in "Bling": The liquid lipstick trend showed no signs of stopping in 2016 and Tarte's 21-shade Quick Dry Matte Paint line added even more options to the already saturated market. Nevertheless, the shade Bling truly caught my eyes and impressed me with its nice formulation and lovely color.

Reds:
1. Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in "58 Rouge Vie": A unique, sophisticated, and ultra-wearable matte red, this is probably my favorite lip color of 2016.
2. NARS Audacious Lipstick in "Shirley": I have a love and hate relationship with NARS products but their Audacious Lipsticks are undeniably incredible. "Shirley" was a new release for 2016 and it is just the most gorgeous crimson red. The formulation is super pigmented while the texture is an easy A+!
3. MAC Liptensity Lipstick in "Cordovan": Arguably the best release from MAC in 2016, the Liptensity collection offered up quite a few must-haves but Cordovan was the one that really caught my eyes. In the tube it looks like a rather dull burgundy but swatched on the lips it is a very rich and sophisticated red.
4. YSL Vinyl Cream Lip Stain "410 Rouge Vinyle": If you've ever wished for a more pigmented Glossy Stain, then you've got it with the Vinyl Cream Lip Stain. This particular red is a deep candy apple that's just drenched with pigments. The finish has the most alluring sheen as well!

Pinks:
1. Too Faced Holiday 2016 "Candy Cane" Melted Matte Lipstick: A bright and pigmented pink liquid lipstick that smells like mint chocolate? Yes, yes and yes!
2. L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss in "310 Forbidden Kiss": 2016 saw quite a few waves of the "matte gloss" trend and although most were an immense disappointment, L'Oreal gifted us with a lovely berry that's both sophisticated and glam.
