Hi everyone! I can't believe we've already made it to part 3 of the Emily Awards! This video was probably my longest editing process yet. I can't believe how much I can talk about lip products... probably my most obsessed-about category of makeup! You may notice a lot of repeat favorites, but there are also lots of NEW favorites in the different color families this year. With the color categories, there is no specification in terms of high end or drugstore... it could be either. Some of my priorities with lip products include the texture & feel on the lips, as well as color variety and ease of application. As with my other Awards lists- some categories just don't have a favorite!
